Summer Broken!

Guesss what!! Today is the day my brother has published his book!

It's a great summer-time adventure about a boy who RUNS! It has thrill! And baseball! And a haunted house! And surreal happenstance!

And to top it all off, the interior illustrations are drawn by none other but MYSELF!!

What's going on here??? To learn the answer to that, and see the full pictures, and all the rest of the pictures, and read the epic adventure, you'll just have to BUY THE BOOK!!

Buy one! Buy twelve!

A dress for Loopy

Short post today. Working on a bigger one. Had to get this one done before Pentecost, don't you know old chum.

Here I've made a dress for Loopy, as mentioned previously that she needed.

Yes that's better.

And here's the Pysanky eggs I made this year!

I keep tryin'!

Birthday and Easter

First thing that happened was my boyfriend came to visit for his birthday!

Don't you laugh at my silly attire and accessories! I'm not well.

So here's what I made him for a present!

Lil knit dolls of the cast of Smash Brothers 64! How 'bout that.

And here's the cake I made him!

It's based on this place from Ocarina of Time.

...And finally got confirmation that it is, in fact, the best yellow cake recipe!

After that, we come to Easter! Here's what we came up with for the beam.

Mostly just our Easter garland, and stuffed bunnies are added.
And in the middle,

Dad got us this cross which is usually a Crucifix, but the Corpus is removable, like the one they have back at home

Also in the post linked above is my terrible attempt at making a spring dress a few years ago. Aha, but THIS year, I've actually gone and done made a GOOD dress!

Improved the shape by making a pattern from one of my existing dresses. Here's me wearing it.

I wore it to Easter Vigil! ...Which may have been ill advised, considering it's been 15 degrees and still covered in snow...

Anyways, here's what I got in my basket!

And her name is going to be...! ...Loopy. She's in a dress borrowed from one of Mary's dolls right now, as the one she came with was aftermarket, glue spotted, and too black and somber for Easter. I guess I gotta make her a new dress too!

Lenten Lex Luthor

...Jr., that is, from Lois & Clark, serving as subject for my annual miserable Lenten DC picture. The show was mostly just fun and silly, but the Lex Luthor Jr. arc was one of the closest bits to profound in it. Also interesting is the fact that in Batman v. Superman Lex Luthor was Lex Luthor JUNIOR as well, (rather than his father being named Lionel as is usual) leading me to believe he could very well have been based on this fellow. Plus both their plans had a much higher degree of manipulation than Luthor usually does, and check out these design similarities.

Don't you just love learning more about DC?

Two of two!

And here finally I've gotten around to the other promised Valentine's Day picture!

Here we have (clockwise) T.K. Takaishi & Kari Kamiya from Digimon, Evelyn & Paultin from Dice Camera Action, Steve Trevor & Wonder Woman from Wonder Woman, River Song & the Doctor from Doctor Who, and in the center King Sam & Queen Anna from Goofatopia. I did warn you last year that that was the ship I was most enthusiastic about...

And what do we have here why we have the card he sent me for Valentine's Day!

Covered in bears, as you can see. This man knows me well...

As for other decor, all I could really manage was taking a bunch of old cards I had from when I was like 8 and everyone in class had to give them to everyone else, so those I just stuck up on the beam, and then used this lil mailbox my Grandma gave us as a centerpiece.

Works for now.

You know what we haven't met a new bear for quite some time!

This is The Pied Pieman. I got him spinning the prize wheel at the fair last summer. If you're wondering how I always get such great prizes at it, the answer is that it only costs a quarter to spin it, and only a quarter more to spin it again, and so on and so forth till I get what I want.

One of two Valentine's Day posts

I don't have the annual  Valentine's  shipping picture ready just yet, but I did draw my *personal* Valentine for this year. It is based on this photo, which was taken by my boyfriend's mother last September, and then she framed it all nice and everything and sent it to me as a Christmas present.

I set about copying it, but in more of my Tiny Terrors style!

Not totally pleased with how it turned out, but he said he liked it, and that's the important thing. :)

By Your Broken Eyes

Hasty fanart I did awhile ago, hastily, of Nate Sharp's music video for his song All I See.

And here's the video for you. To watch.
