Random from Cute and Funny Things

I'm a sucker for baby animals, chibi, general cute anime-ish things, and everything in between. And bad jokes. I like those, too. I can't help it. It's a problem, I know, but... but...!

And kitties. Oh gawd, the kitties!


Random Favourites


Are any of my followers from Switzerland?

Anything you can share about living there? Stuff like how much does a cell phone cost, is food expensive, that sort of thing?

I'm trying to do some research, but I prefer to talk to people I know :3

Moon Druid
Started playing D&D again, this time 5th Ed. I'm the DM, but I need a character on the off chance someone else decides to run a game, so I decided to try a class I've never done before - Druid. Shape-shifting seems fun, and with the Moon path, I can change into bigger and badder things early on.

So, here is Vaesha, my Moon Druid. Low charisma, doesn't like people or cities, wood elf who basically hides until needed, and then turns into a dire wolf and bites peoples. The markings are gold paint over scars, that she meticulously repaints when they need it before leaving her tent. It is off-putting to people in cities, but even moreso if she leaves the pant off, as it's just decorative scars all along her body. Her hair is green, dyed, I'd assume, as I think it should change with the seasons. The eyelashes are adorned with bird feathers, because why not?

This was my second time touching Photoshop for this type of thing in like a decade, and took me well over 40 hours to do. I have the whole body sketched (how could I not? The costume is what i put the most thought into!) but bit off more than I could chew to try to color, considering how difficult this part was. Helpful tips are always welcome, but remember, I'm a way beginner at this, so please be nice!

Edit So I just realized I never fixed the nose line... ah well. I'll fix it tomorrow, but I realize how weird it looks :(
Working on turning a yukata into a dress using only one cut in the fabric, everything else is darts and pleats! Zipper in last night, and it looks pretty fab!

I'm a sewing maniac, who is willing to sew just about anything (cosplay or otherwise) you could throw at me!

:star: I'm currently residing in Japan with my wonderful husband :star:
I'm not working on cosplay commissions at the moment, nor much sewing apart from small personal projects (quilts and jewelry, more than anything) due to only having one *le gasp* sewing machine with me, and no dress forms or even room to work!

So, for the time being, I am simply existing, getting over some crippling mental health issues, and snapping pictures every chance I get. If you'd like, however, give me a +watch and you'll know when I'm back home in the US, studio set up and ready to go again! Because you can't keep me away from it for too long...

I graduated with a BFA in Costume Production in the Spring of 2008, and have been working diligently for Taeliac Studio, the business I've been running since 2002/2003 (I can't honestly remember which~) specializing in cosplay commissions, with some forays into professional theatre locally when the opportunity arises.

I love sewing, and I am willing to try to help anyone out with their questions (although I'm insanely slow to respond to emails and notes, sorry!)

I'm moving slowly more and more into other areas as well, such as prosthetic work for special effects makeup, leather working, millinery (hat making), and custom alternative bridal but you never know where else I'm going to go!~
