Ninjas and Neon and Aerobics - oh my!

For those of you who aren't lucky enough to know already, one of my favorite art studios out there is Shonuff Studio. This comes not just from how long I've known the creators but because they always put out work that is beautiful and creative and FUN.

After sooooo much work, they are finally putting out their very own comic, but they could use some help funding the printing of future issues. What can you do to help? Contribute to their Kickstarter! This is a fantastic way to not only help out independent comic creators but also get some pretty amazing perks in return.

Help make sure that Aerobicide and its star Sheri Ken keep fighting evil for a long, long time and throw a few dollars toward Shonuff's Kickstarter!

Artist Alley Report - Dallas Fan Days 2016

Wondering how Dallas Fan Days went? Wonder no more! Elia made a wonderful Artist Alley report about all the fun, the craziness, and me being a goober. I'm always a goober. Now you have video proof. The maturity level is low, which really just makes for better video for all of you.

Cosplay Tutorial: Rogue from X-Men

Side by Side - I may not quite have the cleavage for this.

Everybody wants to be a hero, right? It's easier than you think to nail it!

Wanna start somethin', sugah?

This is what you could call a cheap ass cosplay. It took very little time and very little money to put together - which also makes it an easy favorite. There are a million ways you could dress it up and change it to your needs too, which is a double plus. And Rogue from X-Men is a fantastic character, plus a southern belle, which I am too even if I don't have the accent to prove it.

Dragon Con involves a LOT of walking. Comfy shoes are a must.
It all started with this dress, which I fell in love with right away. I was in a rush to get something serviceable thrown together before Dragon Con a few years back, so I quickly ordered these tights, not even realizing they didn't have feet. Oops! That said, if you go more classic with your costuming and wear boots, it won't matter much, and they were very soft. I went for comfort with tennis shoes since it was the last day of the convention and my feet were as tired as the rest of me. I have since purchased some opaque green tights on clearance at a Halloween store, and you can get reasonably priced yellow boots on Amazon.

The gloves I already had on hand, but you can find some nice cheap gloves that are actually Rogue's usual yellow variety. Finish it off with some white streaks. You can either go full bangs like I did with this clip in (which is actually a really beautiful texture), or these silky streaks

That's really all it takes. A few clicks on Amazon and one dress and you're all set to be a superhero for Halloween!

Hawkeye got a little fresh. I took care of it.

If you, like me, enjoy funny YouTube stuff or really wanna make your own personal lair more goth, this is the place to start. Halloween is the perfect time of year to get on gothing your home up.
