Yes! Yes I did! Check it out!
So sorry it’s been practically FOREVER since I posted… Fail on my part. I’ve been busy.
Well, my summer is basically over. On Monday I return to school…….Duhn duhn duhn! I’ll post up my schedule later, once it’s set in stone and whatnot. 😉
Really, not much all that interesting going on. I’m ready for school and pretty darn excited! Oh, I have found out that I think I want a Fiat 500 for my first car. They’re inexpensive for a car, and they’re super cool. Check ’em out.
I have done a buttload of drawing though…so here’s a little art dump:
Oh, one more thing; I think I’m scrapping the Quorra costume thing. It’d be too much effort. I think I’m going to just buy an original Star Trek dress thing, and then wear some leggings with it and borrow a pair of boots from a friend. Much easier. 😉
Well…That’s all for now! Promise to have a bigger update when I have more news… 😛
It’s been a while since I posted anything, so I figured I would give you an update on life and stuff!
First off, I finished two more books! “The Andromeda Strand” and “Shane.” I’m going to try and make some podcasts about then today. Both were very good in different ways; Andromeda Strand was a Sci-Fi thriller, good but scary. Shane was a Western, and it is now one of my all-time favorite books. If you ever get the chance to read either of them, you should. Very, very good books.
AND I LOVED IT.
Seriously though, a very good movie! Sure, the effects were lame (It was the 80s!), and the score was awful (It was the 80s!), but how can you possibly get over all the very “It was the 80s!” stuff about the costuming? It was like watching a period drama! Not to mention that Tron was just super awesome. And Jeff Bridges! I LOVED him in this movie. In Legacy he was very serious, but in this one he was more of the goober that I see him being in real life. I liked that.
So of course I do some fan art.
And I added a couple of shirts from the movie, which I will be ordering as soon as my mom gives the okay.
I’ve been drawing lots of other things, but I don’t really want to spend ten minutes uploading stuff, so check out my deviantART page. Maybe I’ll post an art dump later, but not now. 😛
In other news, I’m leaving for Alabama on the 12th! My mom has lots of relatives out there, and we try togo every couple of years. We’re staying at my Mammaw’s house. 😉
I have no clue what time we’re leaving (If I could guess, sometime probably around 8:00am), but I do know that we’re arriving at 4:00pm. I know that airports have WiFi, so I’ll probably try and update during a lay-over. Do airplanes have WiFi? Let me see…I think they do. I dunno. My mom just said the airplane takes off at 7:00…And you usually have to get there at least an hours early… D:
But anyways, while I’m in Alabama, I’ll have easy access to the computer. We bought my Mammaw one a while ago, and she never really uses it, so I can check my accounts and I will definitely update the blog. 🙂
Well…That’s really about it! I’ll try and update some more and I will work on some podcasts today.
Guess who watched TRON: LEGACY two nights ago… 😀
Yep. I liked that movie better the second time around. The music is always awesome (Ask my mom, she’ll tell you how I was getting all excited and stuff.) and visually, oh my gosh it’s amazing! The plot was a little easier to follow this time, and I figured things out that I didn’t the first time (Zeus/Castor wasn’t an ISO! Ohhh.) and I enjoyed it more. It also inspired me to dress up as Quorra for Halloween! Thing is though, most of the costumes are expensive and don’t look that good, so I’m making my own. So I did some research and found that a few ladies had made some very nice costumes by themselves, so I looked around Google images a bit and drew up a quick plan (link to what I drew up) for a simplified costume.
First off, you have to know what Quorra looks like. Here we go:
So, a basic break-down of her outfit is as follows:
That’s a lot! I’ve omitted the saber thing, just because no one will care about it. 😛
So, I went down with my mom and a friend today to the part of town where you can buy just about any kind of abnormal thing you want. Prom dress? Sure. Very inexpensive suits? Of course. Slightly creepy toys? Yep. Pirated movies? Oh yes.
I asked my mom’s friend, who knows much more about downtown (that’s where we were) than we do, and I asked if she knew where I could get some black, shiny leggings. We walked down a few rather long blocks and we looked around for a shop she had seen some in, but we couldn’t find it. We were about to give up hope when we walked into one store and she asked. Sure enough, the lady went, opened up a drawer, and had some! I bought them for $15, and then we went on. (Yeah, no tax. Just $15 flat. It’s cool down there because sometimes you don’t have to pay some random amount of money.)
We were going into some other shops, and I decided to ask her if she had seen any really long gloves. I had been thinking about using some shoulder-length gloves for the sleevey-bits on my costume, and sure enough, she did! And it was right around the corner. So, walked into a shop, and sure enough, they had some long, black gloves. I bought them (with two dollars from my mom) for $6.62. (Hey, some people charge tax too.)
We had been downtown for around four hours, and we were all getting sore and tired of smelling onions and meat and crowded streets, so we left.
I went home and tried on my items; the leggings fit fine (a little loose in a few places, but overall fine), but the gloves had a habit of slipping down further than I wanted to. I think what I’ll do is buy an off-the-shoulders shirt, tuck the sleeves into the gloves, and then the gloves will stay AND my outfit will be more accurate! Yippee!
I’ll keep you posted on all the costume-coming-alongs.
I asked my mom if we could go and buy an Identity Disk tomorrow, so hopefully we can and I can get that out of the way.
Yep! I was bored and on the Nook, so I decided to write a post! I’m listening to Owl City on Pandira and just chilling. I’ll probably do some reading in a few minutes. 😉
That was it! Haha.
Sorry I didn’t post it last night!
Anywho, a mid-length podcast. Sorry it’s so long…There was a lot to talk about.
I’ll try and do another podcast, be it a review or just a normal one, soon. I’m prently reading “Shane”, “The Andromeda Strain”, and “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes”. My mom and I also got “TRON: LEGACY” and “Annie Get Your Gun” from the library, so maybe I’ll do a movie review too.
Well, that’s about it! I’m off to the dentist!
I just finished reading a book yesterday, and I’m going to try and record a little book-review-podcast thing tonight. Stay tuned!
In the meanwhile, you might want to look into the book, “Death Cloud”!
