Hi everybody!  Wow, I can't believe how long it's been.  I've been so busy working on this wacky show that I haven't even had a chance to take photos of our last costume.  

I do have something to share though!

My husband and I made a short film for a horror contest.  The theme of the contest is 'Who's there?' and the rules were it had to be three minutes long, cost less than $1k and be some form of horror.  Sadly it doesn't involve any crossover kissing but I think it came out pretty neat and if you have three minutes, please take a gander:

The monster was designed by Kelsey Berk who is a super cool and talented lady.  My husband directed and I did... basically a bit of everything else, lol.  Costumes and props and visual effects and even cooking for everyone.  It was really fun and I hope you enjoy.

How are you all?

I don't usually post my fic here, but I just did a piece for the Dragon Age Big Bang.  Since I knew a few of you also share my enthusiasm for my favorite rarepair (hi Corbie), I wanted to share a link to this Finn/Dagna, post-DA2 story I finally got around to writing.  It's got hugs, and magic, and explosions, and a scary cow, plus art by wadebramwilson and eyeofmantorok.  

In case you like that sort of thing :)

For each of the 15 first people answering this journal I will put his/her avatar and the three deviations I like most from his/her gallery on the list.

Update: I didn't get 15 responses so I'm just going to update this with some features of artists I like.  No need to link back, but feel free to add a comment, there are some spots left :)

A slave and a mage by Achico-Xion Aerith - Will you come back? by Achico-Xion
Some lovely cosplay photos of some of my favorite characters!  I love the attitude, and the super-saturated colors.

2. :iconstargazer392:
Darcana Arkon by StarGazer392 :thumb306062423: :thumb309158680:
A neat character and some pretty amazing face painting. And I also like rainbows. :)

3. :icondasque:
New Dawn by Dasque Alistair and Anora by Dasque Love Is by Dasque
The incredibly talented Dasque!  I know Dasque first from, and her stories are wonderful but her art is also amazing.  Her illustrations have so much sweetness, I love that they tell a story.  Especially when it's my story :P

4. :iconrihouston:
Oh no she didn't! by RiHouston Hawke, Anders and a little Justice by RiHouston Lena-The Hero of Ferelden in Kirkwall
Setting:  The beginning of Act 3 in Dragon Age 2 after the Arishok is defeated and Hawke is proclaimed the Champion of Kirkwall.  Roughly seven years after the defeat of the Blight by my estimations.
Lena Amell could feel the tension as soon as her ship docked in Kirkwall.  It was a city with a thin layer barely concealing the violence that lay just beneath the surface.  Wearing her Warden Commander armor and carrying a sword and shield, she was let through without a second glance though she noticed all the mages traveling into the city were put to one side for further scrutiny.  Had the Templars tested her for magic however, they would have found her to be a mage in spite of her warrior like appearance.  Her attire wasn't meant to deceive-she had acquired specialized training as an Arcane Warrior whose practice had been lost to time until she stumbled upon it in a crypt hidden deep in the Brecilian forest.  After sh

I met this lady from her Show Me the Love contest back when, and she is seriously one of the sweetest, friendliest people on the internet.  She shares my sincere fondness for mages, templars, and grumpy old air benders.  The third piece is a story that I'd like to see more.

5. :icondrathe:
Someday... by drathe DA: Heart of Ferelden - Anora by drathe DA:O Bubbles by drathe
Drathe has an unmistakable personal style and draws with so much emotion.  

6. :iconcharmainemorganphoto:
The Humanoid Typhoon by charmainemorganphoto
<3 cosplay :)

7. :iconcorbie:

Lovely illustrations.  I particularly like that rendering of Justice/Anders.

Prance by ClearingPuppy DA-Scary, Mmmkay? by ClearingPuppy :thumb258023330:
I love her  carefree style.  Met her at SDCC and she's a cool person too.

Hi all!

Just a quick update to say that my husband and I will be at Anime Expo (Saturday) and SDCC  (Friday-Sunday) this year.  I'm trying to finish some other costumes so I don't know what exactly we'll be wearing but we'll definitely go as Bethany & Anders at least one day at SDCC.

Anyone else going to these two?  Feel free to say hi if you see us :)
Looks like nobody grabbed the Kiriban, but I still feel like drawing.   So... first three comments get a sketch.  

Prompt me something? :)

EDIT: Okay, got some prompts.  Thanks guys!
Had fun with this last time so...

Grab a screen capture of my 4,321st page view and win a drawing!

Thank you to everyone who checks out my stuff, srsly, you brighten my world.
This has me grinning: Dragon Age perfumes, featuring ::iconaicosu::, ::iconsubitoallegra::, ::iconlove-squad::, and my husband, among others.  I kind of want all of them.

Can I get a little sappy, for a second?

Two Christmases ago,  a friend gave me a video game called Dragon Age, and almost immediately it spawned an obsession that has led to one of the most creatively productive times of my life.  It may be "just"  fanstuffs, but in the past two years I've written  over 100,000 words, improved my drawing skills immensely (check it out: 2010 vs 2011), and made some costumes that I think are pretty neat.  

I just wanted to thank you, Dragon Age fandom, for accepting me, encouraging me, and inspiring me more than any other fandom ever has.  If any watchers are feeling sappy too, please take a moment to say hi, and we can spread the love.

Happy holidays! ^_^

2500 kiriban?

Fri Aug 26, 2011, 8:17 AM
UPDATE: :iconlarissa-art: caught the kiriban, thanks everybody!

I like making stuff for other people! So I'm going to try this out and see if it works...

screencap my 2,500 pageview and I'll make you something

I wear a few different hats around here, so if you win it's up to you.  I can draw you something, or write you something, or even make you something like the Anders purse.  Your choice... or I can surprise you ;)

Thanks for all the support everyone!

A few people asked for more information on how the Anders costume was made.  I put together some detailed construction notes, with pictures, on my Blogger.  Check it out if you're interested:

Link goes to my Craft blog

I finally found the photos from the costume contest - they were under Mass Effect for some reason (??).  Here's the album from Bioware:

So many epic costumes.

There's a pretty good photo of my husband and me, and then a really good photo of my husband accepting his fan award.

I have to say, I kinda love all the fangirl appreciation for my beloved.  Even though the wig is not so good.  Usually in our cosplays I'm the only one who gets to be sexy. ;)
I don't have many watchers, but feel free to say hi and introduce yourself. :)

IMPORTANT: If you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first place, completing the list with 19 other people. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone. I will check whether or not you have done this. "

Hi!  I should write something here!  I guess!?

I have a lot of hobbies and one of them is doodling, sometimes.  I also write Dragon Age fanfic and do geeky crafts  

Um, and I like donuts.  There, now we're friends.
