I didn’t know what he’d do with the song, and to be honest I was trying to give him a really hard prompt in revenge for him springing Pythagoras’ theorum on me. Holy cow. Chris, you nailed it.
Do your eyes a favour and look at these photos full res while playing the prompt music in the background. That’s a frozen dandelion you’re looking at in the second image, with teeny ice-bubbles sitting on its whiskers. I don’t have a clue what some of the other things are, but they’re beautiful.
Today I did not hang myself because in penance for being so slack lately I am offering bonus photos. Here are some of my favourite cosplayers from the weekend. A lot of people seem intent on rubbishing cosplay, but I think it’s fantastic. The sheer creativity of some of these costumes!!!
Anyway. Click on these - I’ve captioned each of them to tell you more. Please excuse the heavy-handed vignettes - it’s to try and isolate the costumes so you can see them better.
Last weekend I did not hang myself because I ran the Liedekijn table at Melbourne Supanova, and we sold 70% of the art books we’d brought.
Thanks to my wonderful helpers Henry, Bonny and
Marceline Elain (all pictured)… as well as Eri, Doug and Dan. Thanks also to Emma for organising all of this in the first place, and to Tim for finding us a table!
Kindness covers all of my political beliefs. No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.Roger Ebert (via grandmastattoo)
