Some of my friends have been getting into and/or talking about D.Gray-man and I’ve been wanting to show off these photos by teastars, so now seems like the perfect time! 

So, #tbt to last May when a dozen or so of us visited Smithville Mansion in NJ for a day photoshoot! It was really fun hanging out with everyone outside of the con setting for once! And I hope we can do again soon!

I really love these photos by TeaStars, who has a great sense of composition and a nice editing style <3 Also, although I made this costume way back in 2009, it’s still one of my favorites and I enjoy cosplaying Lavi so much!!

I recently hit 2000 followers! Wow, thank you all for thinking my blog is worthy enough to follow, hahah! I’m always amazed when I reach milestones like this because I’m just like “how?” :O

I’d love to do a giveaway or something, but all the ideas I had involve money, and I’m currently looking to buy a house and can’t bring myself to justify doing so -_-; However I’m hoping to open a Storenvy soon to sell various prints. So maybe by the next milestone I can offer something for free from my store!

Once again, thank you all for the support! *^*

Ps. I still have some asks to get to, soon. Ack sorry!

FOR SALE: NIKON D80 DSLR

Hello darlings! Now that I’ve grown adjusted to using my new camera, I am officially selling off my first baby, my Nikon D80 which served me well for most of my work as a cosplay photographer thus far. While this is a used camera, and the body shows signs of wear as well as it’s missing the detachable eye cushion and the cover for the flash attachment bed, it works just as well as the days I first started working with it. I’ve taken extremely good care of this camera and now I’d like to pass it on to someone else. 

The eBay listing linked above is for the camera body, no lenses are included. With the body, the neck strap, battery + charger, and a computer cord are included in the listing. 

The retail price for the body only was $999.95 when this camera was purchased, therefore, I have started the bidding at a base price of $300, with a buy it now option of $500 (the purchaser will also be responsible for the shipping prices on the listing, and shipping is available for both US and International). This is a great camera for those who are interested in getting into photography and want something a tiny step up from point and shoots/starter cameras. 

Signal boosts are appreciated, as this money will help me get through the last month or so of school financially. Thank you!

KICKSTARTER TO PRINT VOLUME 1 OF TODD & PETUNIA JUST LAUNCHED!!!!!!!!!!

Yes… this is the thing I’ve been working on secretly for the last little while… I’m biting my nails like nuts…

This is a Kickstarter to fund the printing for volume 1 of Todd Allison & the Petunia Violet. It’s an approximately 176 pages full-colour book with a dust jacket and a pull-out poster. The book will be 7 by 9 inches. It’s basically my dream book.

If you go to the Kickstarter page, you can watch a video where I talk about my comic in a fragile voice. PLEASE… ENJOY… (OR NOT…) 

EVEN IF YOU CAN’T CONTRIBUTE, I’D REALLY APPRECIATE REBLOGS TO HELP SPREAD THE WORD… THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

The day has come… when all my dreams have come true….

I’ve waited so long….

to have TAPV in my hands…

(Wow, Nozmo, you’re over halfway there in like half a day, I’m so excited. Now I gotta decide which tier I want… ;~~~; )

(=゚ω゚)ノ おかえりなさい~!

Origami Cylone has settled in!

This was a fun project, I got to make something overly fancy Japanese. Majority of his furnishings are bought from Marukai San Diego or stolen from other nendoroids for the photo. I even made a bin of 1cmx1cm origami sheets for him. I should technically make a sword stand and separate stand for his large shuriken, but y’know the plastic sake cup works well too haha! I Also leveled up some hand painting skills on the black and gold drawers~ ah, it was frustrating but turned out well!

After making Gunpla for weeks straight, this pretty and crafty project was a breath of fresh air hahaha.

Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

I love the subtle movement in these. I didn’t even quite notice when scrolling past, and I find that really intriguing. I love that artists are exploring the gif more as an art form! :’D
