My Button Collection

Just ordered an e-textile kit, some LEDs, and some conductive thread for a crocheting project. Things are going to get technological up in here you guys. I can’t wait for stuff to get here so I can go mad scientist on all of this fun stuff.

(For real I just want to make things glow in the dark, okay?)

So I crocheted brimpers for Chip Zdarsky and Matt Fraction for HeroesCon and this happened. I’ll write more later tonight because OMG you guyyys.

Little crocheted boobs.
I didn’t know that would make me so happy, but it did.
Thank you for unexpected happiness over little yarn boobies electricsheepcrochet.

HAHAHA You are so very welcome. I’m here to please. Or creep out. Whichever works.

Oh man, today was a whirlwind. I don’t even know where to start. Let’s go with the obvious: I crocheted two dolls brimping for Chip Zdarsky and Matt Fraction for HeroesCon. Let’s allow that sink in for a minute because that might be the weirdest sentence I’ve ever written.

Why did I do this? I feel this obligation to say thanks to people who create comics that really impact me. (Last year, I made Matt a Tong and Kelly Sue a Captain Marvel.) Sex Criminals is one of those comics because it does an amazing job exploring sexuality in a hilarious, honest, and poignant way. My boyfriend half-jokingly suggested I crochet brimpers and being the fucked-up person I am, I said “Yes, perfect”. They were put in a paper bag labeled “Totally Not Porn” (see above) because I wanted to hide them from the kids running around the con and this seemed like the perfect delivery method.

I had some concerns that this was maybe not going to go over great because it was so weird and fucked up. But Chip and Matt could not have reacted more beautifully. They were so nice, hilarious, and great sports about the whole thing. THEY EVEN BROUGHT THEM TO THE PANEL IN THE BROWN PAPER BAG. You can see them in the (shitty) photo above. Matt even mentioned something about them being in the letters column in an upcoming issue?? I have no idea, the whole moment was a total joyful hilarious blur. All I know is they were unbelievable. I’m still in awe.

Matt and Chip - I love you guys non-ironically too. Daniel and I are totally DTF. Thank you so much for embracing such a weird gift and more more importantly, thank you for making an amazing book. 

For those asking - Yes, I do take commissions, for brimpers or otherwise. If you’re interested, send me a message here on Tumblr.

So I joined in a myths and monsters themed shoot with the Carolina D20 girls at Castle McCulloch in Jamestown, NC. I decided to go with Thalia, the Greek muse of comedy, because she felt like the best for my personality. I couldn’t find a comedy mask so I used a masquerade mask and decorated it so it was comedy inspired. I painted it gold and added “hahaha” along the edge in puff paint. I’d love to go back and redo some of it when I have time to make it more dramatic.

The rest of the cosplay is super simple. I made a chiton using some cheap pink cotton fabric. I finished it the morning of so it’s pretty wonky. It’s pinned together at my shoulders like they they were actually worn so I felt nervous all day it was going to fall. I tied some rope trim around my waist and hair. Hello lazy cosplay!

The photo was taken by the amazing Starrfall Photography who managed to make my half ass efforts look great. She’s the best.

So @chikicosplay asked me to take some photos with her in the snow yesterday and even put me in her amazing Winter Bunny Sakura cosplay. I love these photos; she’s such a great photographer and best friend.

Also check out Eevee’s sass in the first photo. She wasn’t having ANY of it in that snow.
