Dragon’s Crown Elf Progress.
Feathers are made from poster board. Arrowhead is made from Friendly Plastic. Hard to get smooth if it isn’t a rounded shape but whoo, I love it.
Last week I talked about my experiences going to conventions in less than conventional dress, but I left the account of my being fondled brief as I thought it deserved its own discussion. This is t…
An interesting article from an alternate point of view on harrassment at conventions.
As a congoer, it’s important to remember that those in costumes are people too. You should always ask permission before touching, grabbing or glomping!
Worbla Tests - Making Worbla Smooth
(a more detailed post on method will come shortly)
In your opinion, which yielded best results? A or B?
Here’s one of many makeup tutorials for crossplay that will also be at least somewhat useful for general passing, as some people’ve requested suggestions for that - if you’d like me to reblog more of these, I can try!
Ok, this is rad. Thank.
SHE LOOKS LIKE ELIJAH WOOD.
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS AND SHARE THIS.
Aki-Con wants to hide this under the rug, they have blamed the victim and called her a liar, and DJ Victor is NOT to be trusted. He is a known felon, who has raped two known girls now, but who knows how many others who have not spoken up of this. All I ask is that you reblog this and get this attention out there.
Share it with local news media stations, other convention goers, etc.
I actually tried to warn Aki-Con about this man being a felon and they ignored me.
And guess what?
Another innocent girl got RAPED because they ignored the facts.
Not only that, but they IGNORED the girl and tried to say she was lying when she immediately went to staff for help.
EDIT: So, Victor Malice is a part of a cosplay group with around 400 members, give or take.
Which is still a very small part of the pacific northwest and Seattle cosplay community. Out of safety and concern for the members, I shared the post about this situation to the group.
The admins are friends with Victor Malice and DELETED THE POST as to HIDE what happened to people.
IGNORING WARNINGS IS WHAT GOT US HERE, PEOPLE.
If Aki-Con had heeded the warning they received and dropped him as their DJ, then a girl would NOT have been raped by him at Aki-Con 2013.
I personally find it SICKENING that his friends are being his accomplices and are trying to hide these facts from everyone.
This includes the Aki-Con staff that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes the cosplay group admins that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes any of the people who knew his true nature and kept quiet about this. All of this. And even now, they are trying to hide it.
LADIES, PLEASE KEEP YOUR GUARDS UP AT ALL TIMES.
Bad things CAN HAPPEN AT CONVENTIONS.
I will tell you this to the end of the world, because I don’t believe in hiding these facts. I don’t think it is “protecting” anyone in anyway to try and hide what happened. So yes, against their wishes, I will help spread the word about this poor girl and anyone else who may have been victimized by him.
Because I don’t want to see the numbers increased by fools who tried to hide the truth about people who are like DJ Victor Malice.
This isn’t just about one man having done this, this is about making sure people know these kinds of things do happen at conventions.
EDIT2: Luckily someone had left the tab up and had the conversation. So, since it was requested, here was the post and the arguments.
Admins were tagged, and the post was deleted. Remember how it was argued that the admins would tell the group about anything if there was any kind of safety concern?
Well, no warning has been posted. The post got deleted as soon as the admins noticed it and nothing has been said about it since.I want to say that I personally know Malice and have been friends with him in past. At one point I had even caught his interests and it had left me deeply disturbed. I am not the only made uncomfortable and there are many people that have admitted to me the bad things he has done to them. Although I had long grown uncomfortable with him, I was constantly assured that it was a huge misunderstanding. They told me I was just seeing things and he never meant it that way, he has a girlfriend! I let it go, but then I questioned why would he talk to me and make advances like that if he was already dating someone else. There are a lot of people he has hurt and I want everyone to understand that what he has done is unforgivable. There was no misunderstanding. There is only the facts.
So I’m going to my first convention in January (yay!) and I was just curious as to who else is going to SacAnime?? Please reblog this if you are. Thanks!
PLEASE Share this!!!
WRITTEN BY A COP: Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one’s life. In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation… This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,
DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you… Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.
RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.. The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.
DON’T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head,
and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR ,
LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE..
If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat:
DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware:look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor ,
and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.
Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women
are attempting to get into their cars. C.) Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!
The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then,
it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked ‘for help’ into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late
and she thought it was weird.. The police told her ‘Whatever you do, DO NOT
open the door..’ The lady then said that it sounded like the baby
had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, ‘We already have a unit on the way,
whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.’ He told her that they think a serial killer
has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.
10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.
Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors! Please pass this on
This post should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled
the serial killer in Louisiana
I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know.
It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle..
I was going to send this to the ladies only,
but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.
Send this to any woman you know that may need
to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it
and it’s better to be safe than sorry..
Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or
a loved one’s life.
I’m putting this to all my followers not just female…
Be safe everyone
Signal boosting this shit. I know that I have like, ten people following this blog, but some of you have shit tons of people following your’s. Spread this like wildfire.
I get chills reading the last few
and if you are in a situation of maybe witnessing a crime don’t hesitate to ask call the police and ask random passengers for help. Its not a big deal if nothing happens but is is a big help if something is up.

Wonder Woman was always a pretty long dream of mine, but I’ve never found a design I’ve really like. The wonderful Yaya Han however showed me this amazing artwork of her in an armor I’ve just felt in love with! One and half weeks and many sleepless nights later the costume was done! Despite of I had no time to add weapons and a shield, I’m very proud on this work and especially love the photoshoot I’ve done with Darhelle Stevens and Zim Killgore at the Vasquez rocks. Hope you like the result as much as I do!
And here you’ll find a tutorial which shows how I made a breastplate out of this Breastplate Tutorial. In addition here you’ll find even a painting tutorial from my husband, who supported me in painting during other projects: Painting Tutorial.
Added some brown to the weathering. MUCH happier with it. Thanks to thatgermangirl for the suggestion!
