We interrupt our scheduled pumpkin MOther Father to bring you this just in: A fantastic full-shot from ACE A.M.P.! I won’t lie, I wouldn’t like to run into me in a dark alley in this picture.

Fun fact: I asked Ace to try and make my face look longer if he could… and this happened. That skill!

Some much older cosplay photos that I just forgot to do anything with. These were from a Plymouth cosplay meet from mid-early last year. I really like how the cosplay came out, it was just unfortunate that most shots were rendered unusable due to the ‘neckbrace’ bullfrogging my neck.


Can people PLEASE stop calming this as a Neil Gaiman quote?

G.K. Chesterton was a huge inspiration to Gaiman, and you’re doing the both of them a disservice by falsely crediting it.

Go to the fucking bookstore and pick up The Man Who Was Thursday. It’s some anarchist conspiracy shit and it. Is. Awesome.

On a similar note to the whole ‘Coraline is Tim Burton’ fiasco, here’s another to remember: Neil Gaiman was quoting G.K. Chesterton.

The quote is still fantastic, but whether the artist is dead or alive it’s still not very nice to discredit them. 8(

Coraline the Musical by Impossible Mongoose Productions at the Edmonton Fringe in Canada in 2013


Just watched Coraline for the thousandth time, thought I’d doodle her and her doll ouo;;


LETS PLAY A GAME. It’s called: Who directed it TIM BURTON or HENRY SELICK

We’ll start with the 2009 Laika film Coraline based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Do you know who directed it? Burton or Selick?


Did you guess yet?


If you guessed Henry Selick, you would be correct. Tim Burton actually had absolutely nothing to do with Coraline at all in anyway ever. Reminder: Tim Burton has NOTHING to do with Coraline. At all. But that was an easy one. Let’s go to the Walt Disney Pictures adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel, James and the Giant Peach next.


Think you got it? Are you sure? Better double check…


Oh, look. It’s Henry Selick again! Tim Burton actually interacted with this project, though only as a producer. Bet that was tricky… Next one! Let’s go to the Disney/Touchstone Pictures film Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

imageHave you guessed it correctly? Have you really?


Yep that’s right. Even Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas was directed by Henry Selick. Though Burton wrote the poem and created the characters in which Nightmare was based he didn’t have much interaction with the project beyond that. At the time he had already signed off to direct the film Batman Returns and did not want to be involved with the “painstakingly slow process of stop-motion animation.”

Looks like it was a trick quiz. But now you know Henry Selick, whom people rarely know of is responsible for many of the most well known stop-motion animated films. The more you know!

This isn’t even being qeued. This is just being reblogged, because some of you still don’t understand who directed Coraline.

Anonymous inquired: can you draw coraline?? please!!

So yesterday the Heroes of Hyrule group went out for another cosplay day, and although we didn’t all do Zelda this time, we did have some amazing forest locations to work with.

For a one-off, I worked on some prosthetics and props and messed up my wig, teamed up with Lexi- The Blue Girl- for makeup, and together we transformed me into something between the Other Father’s powered-down, kinda chubby, messy-haired form and the final pumpkin form we see at the end of the movie. Well, as a woman of course.

It was an amazing day and we’re gonna have a ton of shots come back from it.


Packing list for #genderbend #OtherFather! Annnd I’ve realized half of it isn’t ready. #Cosplay #Coraline


"Exploring with this dork can always be a fun time!"

//OOC: Yes old-ish picture with my hair and not the Coraline wig. I’m literally so pumped about updating the crap out of this blog and can’t wait for this cosplay weekend!
