milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki)
So I don't have a lot of time to post as I need to get to bed, but I wanted to make a quick little post. Just watched Star Trek: Into Darkness. I've been meaning to watch this movie for ages now, and tonight we finally grabbed it from RedBox. I really, really liked it! We'd gone to see the first one in the theater, but we didn't get to see this one there. Kinda wish that I had been able to!
As we were walking to the truck I was saying to Scottie that I was going to see an attractive british villian in a glass box, though not my favorite flavor of attractive british villian in a glass box. xD
Loki in glass box
That would be this bb right here, who isn't really a villian but I'm going to go with it for what I'm trying to say here.

What was I saying? Oh, here's the british villian on a glass box I'm talking about!
startrek-into-darkness-19
KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN OH wait we're not there yet. Hello Khan how are you?

Upcoming under the cut:
Hiddles spoilers
I was SO AMUSED by the paralells between Khan's capture and Loki's capture. I said to Scottie that Khan needed to give someone a knowing smile to someone as he was being marched in.
More generally, I thought that Benidict Cumberbatch did a really good job with the part. :3

I thought it was rather appropriate that in the parallel universe Spock was the one shouting KHAAAAAAAAN (I mean, that is so iconic). Also, the fact that Kirk sacrificing himself in the same way that Spock sacrificed himself in the past movies was a nice touch.

I had to fangirl squee at Original!Spock making an appearance to talk to New!Spock. Spock is one of my most favorite characters and has been since I was a kid so much love. <3 <3 <3


I want to talk more about it but I've already stayed up too late, and I'm planning on going in to work tomorrow. So later!

Still not feeling well, so here are some previously unposted photos I took of Jinafire and Heath. I thought that I might post them around now because of the romantic holiday times. n_n

How lovely
Hello Darling~

AREN'T THEY CUTE TOGETHER
Hugs

More pictures of Heath and Jinafire )

I was super excited today because Top Gear was finally showing the new episode that had Hiddles as the Star in the Reasonably Priced Car!
Forever driving in puddles
It aired last week across the pond, but didn't show here until this week. I know that I could have found it online somewhere, but I decided to wait and watch it on tv all official like. xD
The interview was amazing too! I loved how they were talking about the Jaguar #GoodToBeBad ad campaign that he's a part of, and how he was acting all cool and collected for the shoot while up in the helicopter:
Acting:
here to drink tea and entice ladies

Considering how bad I felt today, which was at least a bit better than yesterday, I was especially excited to have that to watch today! Luckily too I had the day off today because it's a holiday (President's Day).
I'm going to stay home from work tomorrow too, since while I usually am ok with just pushing through work no matter how crappy I feel, these last couple of days are not those kind of days.

I was really excited to watch the final bit of Olympics ice dancing, cuddled up with Scottie. I thought Meryl Davis and Charlie White had a really nice performance, and I have to say that I was in love with her outfit. So sparkly! Also, while I loved their performance, I had to laugh whenever her skirt would go fluttering in front of his face in lifts. What's visability? Not that it was necessary, and not that it was blocking his view for long, but it amused me anyway. xD
I also loved Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir! Their performance was really nice.
Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani's performance was a lot of fun! I wasn't sold on it when it started, because of the song choice. But then it went from the first Michael Jackson song to Man in the Mirror, which will now forever make me smile because I've heard Hiddles sing it, and shoot there is a gif of it on my journal RIGHT NOW in an entry with him singing it (Priorities I haz dem)... And then they went to Thriller and I love that song, and so I got more into it as it went. Also really liked the costume change he did mid performance. Not as good of a performance as others but I thought it was a lot of fun.
When Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalap came on I was like IS SHE THE BLACK SWAN and she was. Scottie said that they did really good, but it seemed like they needed more practice to get their great individual things to flow together, and that if they were early in their career that they'd end up being more of a threat later. And then they said that she was only 19, and he was 22, and that we'd be sure to see more of them, so he totes called that.

Also, I was just on DeviantArt. I went and poked around and noticed that people have been commenting on my stuff, and putting my stuff in faves and I had absolutely no idea. xD I've been a member of DA for more than 10 years, but for the most part I never uploaded anything until recently. I have a whole crapload of things in the notices thing that I've been meaning to clear out that have built up over those 10 years, though for some reason it didn't occur to me that was where I needed to be looking at for activity on my stuff. I felt like I was in a bubble and that nobody saw anything I put there. Not true, I was just unintentially ignoring people! Erm, oops.

So tonight I decided to take some pictures of Cupid, Lala, Rochelle, and Pony!Lala for a last Valentines photoshoot! Partly to distract myself from how sick I feel.

Hearts
How cute is this bear?

More pictures with Cupid and Rochelle )

Pony!Lala and friends
Shall we let the bear take a ride?

One more picture )

Pony!Lala and friends
All the ghouls!

And in other news everything hurts oh my gawd what is this I don't even
loki-after-getting-smashed-avengers
I just realized that this gif is especially apt because I was worrying Scottie because I'm making pained noises sort of like what Loki is doing there without realizing it.

I'm going to go curl up somewhere and die maybe sleep.
milleniumgypsy: (Hiddleston- thoughtful face)
So I didn't get to post about Valentines Day on the day, Scottie and I unfortunetly didn't feel well last night so we had a pretty quiet night. I've been really sick today, which is less than fun. I hope that I feel better tomorrow!
But the fact that I feel super crummy is not the reason I'm here! Scottie being awesome is, and other fun Valentines things. xD

So we went to the library on the day before Valentines, and we found some fun displays. Mystery dates with books!
Library display )

The books were wrapped up in paper and ribbon, with little plot details on the cover. Scottie picked one out! I was thinking about picking one up, but I have so many comics that I'm reading right now! Also I listen to audiobooks all day at work so I'm less inclined to read other books at home.
Here's what he picked up!
A mystery date with a book? )

We also went to the store to pick up groceries. We saw these cupcakes and thought they might be candidates for cakewrecks.
Because we are 5 )

This is what Scottie surprised me with on Valentines morning!
Homemade chocolates Scottie surprised me with for Valentines!
Those are homemade kit-kat bars, and little chocolate hearts that he made. <3 He is such a sweetie! They are so good too! :D He posted how he made them at his journal here if you'd like to know how to make them!
hiddles chocolate

I'm making him a comic, though I didn't quite finish it yet. Mostly because of the illness that I'm feeling atm.
I also finished painting the bluebird ornament that I made him, I need to take a picture of that now. :3 I also woke Scottie up by singing him "Your Song" from Moulin Rougue. I do have a good singing voice, but I tend to be shy so he likes when I make the effort to sing for him. n_n'
hiddles singing
This is not how brave I am with the singing~

Also, today we saw that there was new Borderlands 2 DLC, the Valentines headhunter pack Mad Moxxi and the Wedding Day Massacre! I saw the name and I was like IT'S THE RED WEDDDING EHEHEHE~ Scottie hasn't read Game of Thrones yet, but I am currently just about to the Red Wedding in the books right now. So I was especially amused. xD
The headhunter packs are only $3, and we still had just over $3 left on our PSN account, so we picked that up right away! We played through that today, which was exciting. Since I've been sick all day today there wasn't that much that I could do. Games work though!
milleniumgypsy: (Hiddleston- thoughtful face)
It won't be Valentines day here for another half hour, but I wanted to take a quick picture with Cupid for it. I decided Pony!Lala made sense for a picture. I might do something with Pony!Loki, but he's not finished yet so that's not quite as easy. n_n

All of the hearts!

I want to post so many things, but I am so tired! Also, Scottie is shooing me off to bed because I am dead on my feet. n_n'
hiddles pillow fight end bye
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki throwing up horns)
So I didn't get as much sculpting done as I might have liked, but I did finish the second bracer tonight! I need to figure out exactly how I'm going to bake it to keep the correct shape, I'll probably bake it onto a foil form. I was also doing a mockup of what I'm going to do with the helmet with regular super sculpey, just for planning purposes. I think I have a better idea of what I'm going to do now!

Watched Lost girl tonight! We're on Let the Dark Times Roll (Episode 5)
I talk a bit about the episode, as well as a bit of talk about Game of Thrones (book) and Loki (shocking I know). xD
Kenzi Von Clare. I'm Bo's honeybee, and I'm here for some sugar. )

Time for bed~
loki thumbs up
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki kneel before him)
Just a quick entry as holy kau it's late, but I was just so excited to start on Pony!Loki's armour. I'm starting with Loki's bracers, these will go on his forelegs. I've just done the one side so far, and I'll definitely use paint to help bring out the detail after baking. Also I'm probably going to add moar battle scarring. (Those gashes are totes intentional!) I should probably take a closer picture of the detail, but that's not going to happen quite yet. n_n'

Beginning armour for Pony!Loki
I suppose that will suffice.

Closer view of the bracers
I do need a closer view, you can't really see but there is a snake in the top right corner.

This isn't the best view of what they look like for reference, but I like this anyway. *koff*
Loki shhhh

Tonight I watched curling with Scottie tonight! I think that's a really interesting sport. I just wish they didn't have to jump ahead in the game so much, we're actually interested in seeing how they get to the points where it's "exciting". xD

Also watched Lost Girl, but I shouldn't get into that quite yet.
milleniumgypsy: (balloons)
Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] unnecessary_ and [livejournal.com profile] nickeldreams! I hope that you have a wonderful day! :D

milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki close soft)
So I've been meaning to unbox the I <3 Shoes Cleo that I'd bought a little bit ago, especially since I've been working on my Loki sculpt! I like to have Heath and Abbey posed with Pony!Loki, Heath because of his sculpt and Abbey because of her ice- but I think Cleo would also be fun to have with Loki because of her character! xD

Here are some pictures of the box art and her before unboxing:
Boxed pictures )

She had some intense helmet hair. It was pretty much solid with the amount of glue in it! I washed it out with warm water and a tiny bit of dish soap. I don't usually try to wash all of the glue out, I think it's ok to leave a little bit to help manage the hair. One weird thing was that when I started to wash the hair, some of it ended up coming out in my hands! It wasn't attached to the head, it was actually glued to the other hair. I think it was actually just cut from the bangs based on the location, but it was weird. She didn't have thin hair, or bald spots or anything like that, so it was ok. Disconcerting when I was washing it though and I wasn't sure where the hair was supposed to be!
One picture before hair washing )

Now here she is, unboxed with freshly washed hair. :3
She comes with a lot of accessories because that's what what sort selection that doll comes with, but my most favorite part is her black bracelet. It's a tiny black snake eating it's tail. xD
What are you looking at?
I am gorgeous

She comes with an extra pair of earrings.
More earrings for me? )

She also comes with sunglasses, a shopping bag (it's just made of paper though), and two extra pairs of shoes.
Shopping trip
Shopping trip!

Contemplative
I wonder what else I should buy...

I've been having fun watching the Olympics today! I'm all about figure skating, so that's been exciting. I really liked Jason Brown's performance, I was so sad for him when he fell! For other single performances I was really impressed by Julia Lipnitskaia's program. So beautiful!

I also watched some of the other events, snowboarding and the biathalon. I started the day by watching the women's Japan vs Sweden hockey game.

Currently watching Helix!
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki mischevious)
Last night and today I've continued painting Pony!Loki. :3 I needed to get a few more coats of white on to have a good uniform colour. I'm happy with that, I might do a bit of sanding. He has eye colour now too!
Tomorrow I'm going to start on armour, which I'm really excited about. xD Also, I'll need to start on detail paint.

Pony!Loki sculpt painting continued
He's cool like Abbey, literally!
...

I watched the opening ceremony with Scottie last night! I missed the very beginning, so I didn't see the mistake with the snowflake rings. I thought a lot of the show was pretty cool though! Scottie and I both had issues with the camera work though, Scottie even more than me. Like, we wanted to see the far out view most of the time, because that's where you get the full effect. But randomly you'd swoop in close where it didn't look as impressive or interesting, or go out to somewhere that looked interesting but not where you wanted to be looking. Scottie really just wanted them to pick a good angle/distance and stay there.

My favorite part of the show was the War and Peace ballet. I'm in the middle of reading that book, so it was especially neat.
I had the most issues with the camera work there, because I'd be looking at the main dancers which is supposed to be the focal point, and then for some reason we'd be looking at the background dancers, and then we'd be in the nosebleed section for some reason... and I just wanted to watch the story.

I also really liked the inflated onion domes. That was really beautiful. Me and Scottie were impressed by the girl walking up the ramp of people. I also liked that she came back for the end!
Other favorite parts were the constellation athletes, and the roller skaters under them. It made me think of Van Gogh's Starry Night.

And then there was the dance number with the dancers with the lights? It so reminded me of this. xD

Considering all of the anti-gay stuff from Russia, I was rather surprised to hear tATu.

In other news today (for just a little bit so far since it's currently 2 am) is Tom Hiddleston's birthday!
Hiddles oooooo
I am endlessly amused that Hiddles is almost exactly Scottie's age. They are less than two weeks apart in age, born the same year, and are both Aquarius. I have to say that was a good year! xD

I heard on the radio on Friday that a nearby McDonalds was having a grand reopening, and they were going to have free cake and free samples today. Since I like cake, and I especially like free cake, Scottie brought me there. Now that I think about it, I'm rather amused that I ended up having cake today. xD
