So I have my costumes all sorted out for sanjapan!
From left to right, I have-
Bandit, my fanbot (steam powered giraffe)
Fancy!meulin, if I feel like going to the formal ball. (Homestuck)
Vanora, my selkie kazoolander (steam powered giraffe)
If you see me about sanjapan, come say hi! I’d love to chat!
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS.
LOOK AT THIS.
LOOK AT THIS MAGNIFICENT THING THAT JAMIE MADE ME.
visualjamie made this amazing lochaber axe for my kazoolander selkie cosplay that I am going to be wearing at sanjapan this weekend.
This thing is so amazing. It’s perfect.
Will have pictures of the costume and prop together soon. But for now, let us be in awe.
Now that i have my internet back, i must ask-
any steam powered giraffe fans going to sanjapan this week?
we could meet up…..and hang out…or something.
Today I posted that I was only 10 followers away from 400. I have since then gained 8 followers, bringing me up to 398. I just want to say thank you for everything.
Really. Thank you.
Hey, look im 10 followers from 400.
Thanks guys. The fact that i’ve gotten this many followers ever just amazes me.
I just bought a new lens for my camera so I’m probably going to try doing small really cheap photoshoots for people just to raise up enough money to pay my mom back for the lens. I’m not a professional or anything but if anyone wants to get cheap pictures of their cosplay/whatever at San Japan then hit me up.
My kazoolander, vanora!
Vanora is a selkie highland warrior. Selkies are seals that are able to shed their skin to become human and walk on land. Selkies are considered to be extremely beautiful, and so many female selkies have their seal skins stolen from them by fishermen and sailors, forcing the selkie to be their wife, as without their seal skin, the selkie cannot return to the sea.
This is what happened to vanora. Her seal skin was stolen from her, and she was forced to become a fishermans wife. She was a sad, but loyal wife for many years, until the day she found her seal skin, hidden away in a chest. With no hesitation, she took her seal skin and returned to the sea.
Realising that other selkies were trapped, just like she was, vanora began hunting down the fisherman and sailors, freeing her kin. Armed with her trusty lochaber axe (which I will hopefully soon have, as visualjamie is graciously making one for me), and her seal skin great kilt, vanora frees and protects her selkie kin.
Still need to weather all the fabric, add more stuff into the wig and get that axe.
