I Was Featured On!!!!

This was very cool!

I sent a message to Justin, owner of, saying that I had spent the entirety of PAX in my Vibram Five Fingers Speed LS.  It may have taken a bit to finally see the end result, but Justin pulled through and posted.  I'm psyched about it!

Helping a "Brony" Out.

My roommate is a fan of My Little Pony.

Are you finished? Go ahead and catch your breath.  It's okay, I'll be right here.

He happens to enjoy the show because of Lauren Faust.  Back off.   He's not hurting anyone even himself, in spite of what some of you may think and it puts a smile on his face.  He's collected the ones that have both plastic and real brush able hair.

Think of it this way, I'd rather him binge on that instead of working on a cocaine nose job, binge drinking, selling other illegal substances and bringing strange women over for wild crazy monkey sex.

Puts things in perspective, doesn't it?  

At around 10:45 PM Monday, I sat down to make a Cutie Mark for his brony pony, Galileo.  I actually tried a technique I saw Mike Krahulik of Penny Arcade and "cell painted" his pony.  It turned out far better than I was expecting.

I then watched as he creatively applied the mark to the pony in a "make-your-own" pony creator.

Not to toot my own horn, but damn, it looked good. :P

When I have more time, I think I'm going to ink and color a "portraiture" of his Pony.

Don't look at me like that.  What?  I'm a cosplayer, with more wigs than a straight guy should.  I've dyed a perfectly good martial arts uniform pink before (Dan Hibiki from Street Fighter),  painted my face and hands entirely white to go for a "bishonen" look of a character from Sorcerer Hunters.  I've spent nights before conventions combing out the hair on them to try and get the right look.   As far a collecting things go, I've collected everything from the mundane to the inane.  From Magic The Gathering, Comics,  Halo Mega Bloks, to plush Stitches.

Let he who is without geek cast the first stone.  The Lord will forgive me the creative licence.
