I'm tired, but I wanted to play around with my tablet some more. Here's what I drew while I was watching Chopped and Suburgatory tonight. xD Suburgatory was cute btw, though I sort of flailed at the dentist bit eeew (mostly because I don't like the dentist though).

Time for bed!

Wait a minute that's not sleeping! But it's cute carry on~

You guys, I am so excited Pony!Loki has his diadem!
First I sculpted the details:
Pony!Loki helmet sculpt progress

Then I got the horns attached (which was tricky!).
Pony!Loki helmet sculpt after attaching horns

I actually modelled the diadem on my design for my own cosplay diadem- just a lot smaller! Also the shape is a bit different because some of the side details wouldn't work on the pony version. The helmet is currently cooling, I just pulled it out of the oven. Of course I baked it off separate from the Pony!Loki himself, because I never intended the armour to be permantely attached- and as such have already done much of the painting. Now I just hope nothing got moved during baking so it still fits properly!

Loki needs to be fabulous of course.

I've finally gotten all of my ponies up on dA except for Pony!Loki, tomorrow hopefully I can get Loki on there too, and just keep my dA up to date. It would be so much easier to upload them in real time, I'm trying to be better about keeping that updated.

Also, so much tv tonight! There were more Voice blinds, which I listened to while I was sculpting. I really like the Voice especially to have one while I'm doing crafts. It's even less necessary to look at the tv! lol

We also watched the season premiere of Rizzoli and Isles and Perception.
For Rizzoli and Isles, I've never been afraid of clowns, but the clown on this episode was pretty creepy. Does anyone actually like clowns? I don't remember really liking them as a kid, though at least I didn't find them scary.
I was REALLY REALLY excited for the next season of Perception, and I was so happy that it was renewed for a second season. I <3 Daniel so much. x3 I also find him so relatable.
I thought the model trains were especially interesting though since Scottie has actually been talking about wanting to get into model trains.

SO MUCH TV STARTING BACK UP THOUGH OMG. lol
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
So I am finally feeling well enough that I can start on my arts again! Did some painting on Pony!Loki, it's not done yet but I wanted to give him shaded socks and hoof colour.
DSCN5080.JPG
Oh, I love painting, it is a purrfect activity!

I also have a REALLY strong inspiration for another sculpt, but I actually want to use my Wacom tablet for it instead of my sketchbook like usual. I don't have it configured for my computer though, so Scottie being his awesome self is going to set that up for me tomorrow. I don't want to say what exactly it is just yet, but I swear when I woke up this morning all I wanted to do was go start on this project. I had to go to work though instead, ah well! I need infinite time. lol

I watched the Olympics women's figure skating long program tonight! I'm going to be so sad when this is all over. n_n'
I really loved Yuna Kim's performance! I was happy for her. I liked how artistic it felt. I also enjoyed Adelina Sotnikova's program! I liked Yuna's a bit more though. I apprieciated and respected Carolina Kostner's, but it wasn't really my taste. I did like it more as it progressed though. I still love Julia Lipnitskaia, I felt bad for her when she fell. Loved Ashley Wagner's performance, and she had one of my favorite outfits of the night. I also loved loved loved Akiko Suzuki's outfit. So pretty. :3 Also, she was skating to Phantom of the Opera, which I love, that music is something that I am most intimately familiar with. :3
johnny-weir-be-unique-o
Ending with the fabulous Johnny Weir, who gets Loki mixed in with him when I google him. xD
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki determined)
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

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

Actual Feels:
tumblr_n0wmhiFgT71rbxepto5_250tumblr_n0rcvtDXK61rpf3pso8_r1_250

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.
hiddles facepalm
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!

DSCN4982.JPG

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~

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: (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
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki)
Tonight I did some more sculpting on the Loki pony. I worked more on the face sculpt, then attached the head to the body. I did some sculpting around the neck, and also planned the ears. I didn't get quite as far as I'd have wanted to, but still- got some done!

DSCN4845.JPG

Tomorrow I should be able to finish up the neck, then sculpt the ears and start the mane and tail. :3

In other news, Scottie has been an amazing chef lately (like he always is, but still!) Since I was sick on Sunday he made chicken noodle soup for me from scratch. It was so good! And then yesterday he made homeade spring rolls, which were amazing. I was also having a craving for spagetti last week when I was feeling the most sick, and he ran out at midnight to get spagetti and sauce so I could have spagetti. He's such a sweetie! xD I think he wanted to make sure that I was eating so that I'd be able to get better sooner.
hiddles eating apology

So sleepy, I hope I'm making some amount of sense. Time for bed!
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
I did a lot of sculpting today actually. I got the body together, which was more difficult than normal because I am using much stronger leg armatures than normal. They were the ones I was originally going to use on the N pony, but I'd misplaced them. It turns out that I didn't need quite as strong wire for the sculpt since I didn't have the hefty wire for N and worked fine, but since I'd already cut and shaped them I used them for this. It just makes any repositioning a pain in my assgardian soul, ehehehe.
Tom!Loki pain in assgardian soul
I was just looking at this and I can't help myself.

Anyway, got the body put together and sculpted. I have plans for some different posing in upcoming sculpts, but for the first Loki pony I wanted a somewhat nuetral position.
I did a lot of sculping on the head as well, and am sculpting the face. I'm really pleased with how that's coming along.

Ah, Balder, thy name is Laughter
Alas, poor Balder!- I knew him, Horatio.

Tomorrow I should be able to finish the head sculpt, attach ears, finish the body... and bake hopefully! Then work on the mane and tail next. :3

I have tomorrow off because it's a holiday, so I'm pretty excited about what I'll be able to do tomorrow!
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki incredulous)
Today I made more progress on the Loki pony. I finished sculpting the legs, and set them baking. Tomorrow I should be able to finish the head sculpt, and sculpt the legs to the body. I have plans for the mane and tail that should be interesting should I go with it. Then armour. :D

I could bake this for you, ya'know...
Heath: Ya'know, I could bake this for you!
Abbey: Perhaps you would have use as sculpt baker.
Frankie: I don't think that's how it works guys...


I might have gotten a bit further, but we were both rather antsy so we went out for a bit. We went to the comic book store. I didn't see the next issue of Young Avengers and I'm not sure if I should be worried about that since it's supposed to have been published already... I do have a pull box but nobody ever puts anything in it. I really need to fix that. I'd be really annoyed if I missed the final issue simply because of a mix-up with my box.

Since I wasn't picking up a copy of Young Avengers, I went and picked up a copy of Journey Into Mystery #622, which is the start of kid Loki. :3 I really want to get all of those back issues!

I felt bad because the girl checking me out was asking me if I saw and liked Thor 2, and was talking to me about how she really liked the comic I was picking up, and I was feeling all flustered because of random anxiety I've been dealing with today and because I was having trouble breathing because of the tail end of my plague. Afterward I was like OMG SOMEBODY WANTED TO TALK TO ME IRL ABOUT THE STUFF THAT I FANGIRL ABOUT AND THIS IS THE TIME THAT MY BRAIN AND BODY DECIDE THEY WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING FUNCTIONAL. ASDFGHLJLLKJFWHY

What I got at the comic book store today
Anyway, the girl put a preview comic in my bag, and one of the first things that I saw was a teaser for Loki: Agent of Asgard WHICH I AM UNCONTROLLABLY EXCITED FOR. xD
Hiddles uncontrollably excited

I didn't get to unbox all of my new dolls today because we spent part of the day out and about, but Scottie did unbox his Operetta and I snapped a quick picture. Here she is!
Quick picture of Operetta! )
The Dance Class Operetta has swing dancing as her theme. Which is especially appropriate, since Scottie was vice president of the swing dance club at our university. :D I also swing dance, but I don't have that distinction. I just went to the meetings and danced! xD
hiddles snl dance
Have a completely unrelated gif of Hiddles dancing because I do what I want.
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
Tonight I continued on with my Loki pony sculpt! I worked mostly on the legs. I made foil cores for the leg armatures and hooves, which is actually not something I normally do. Normally the limbs of my sculpts are just clay because that's easier, but I'm getting low on clay stores so I wanted to try the foil. I think it's going alright, it just takes more effort. xD I have the back legs roughed out, and the front legs near finishing. I also conditioned clay for the rest of the sculpt. I also did a bit of fiddling around with the head and body.

Continuing Loki pony sculpt
I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along.

I'm still sick, but I did manage to go into work today. I'm actually doing better, though I'm still depending on cold medicine to allow me to continue to be at least somewhat functional.

The weather here today is weeeeird. I left work a little early today since I'd been fairly productive and I felt ill. I only walked home this week on Monday, but every day after that Scottie's been picking me up from work since walking home in the cold while sick didn't seem like a great plan. I miss the excercise but I certainly want to get better. But since I was leaving a little early the sun was actually still out, and not only that but it was raining. And it wasn't freezing rain like I'd feared it would be, it was just... raining. And SUPER windy. I felt like I was walking out into the twilight zone because just, wut. It is currently 36°F, that is so so weird. I expect this time to be somewhere closer to like -10°F or something lol. I know this can't last, but I'll enjoy it while it does?
The wind was crazy though. With the high winds and the wet ice I felt like I was going to get blown away when I was walking outside. We stopped at the grocery store and when we were leaving the wind blew a bunch of ice/snow off of the roof and caused Scottie and me to get pelted by rocks when it hit. I'm glad that it didn't hit us though because that would have been less than pleasant. :P

I scored an awesome deal on some dolls while we were there! Fred Meyer had a selection of MH dolls on clearance, and then they had all of their clearance stuff at an additional 40% off. I haven't bought new dolls in forever so I only had a couple of the dolls that were on clearance! (In fact, there were a couple of dolls in that selection that I couldn't pick up that I didn't already have lol)
Scottie has our budget planned out so that I can get a doll in a month, and I spent my doll budget tonight. xD It was awesome though because for the budget (allowing for one doll) I was able to get four! It was slightly over, but one of the dolls was for Scottie because he collects Operetta and there was a Dance Class Operetta that he's been wanting. I'm so happy he was able to finally get her!
For myself I picked up a Dance Class Robecca Steam (my first doll for that character!), and an I <3 Shoes Lala and an I <3 Shoes Cleo.
hiddles success
I'll have to unbox them tomorrow, but I should get to bed now. n_n'
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki pensive)
Here's my progress so far! I have the head sculpt started. I might change the eye shape, I sort of just doodled that on for an idea of how it would look. I also started shaping the body, and started the front legs.

Beginning Loki pony sculpt

I wish I had been able to get more done, but I'm still sick and apparently doing anything makes me want to take a nap. lol :P I'm planning on going in to work tomorrow though, so time to get to bed.
milleniumgypsy: (Pokemon N- grumpy heart)
Tonight I continued the N pony paint! I lightened the whole body paint to a really pale buckskin, and now I'm really happy with him. I did touchups all over the body, painted around the eyes more, and now the main painting is done I think. Now it's detailing! I'm happy. :3

N pony paint continued

One more picture )

Watched Grimm tonight! Did anyone else laugh at Captain Renard saying that he was going to go to Tahiti? I feel like it was a SHIELD reference. xD (They're previous Buffy writers after all, and Whedon is doing SHIELD and obvs Buffy was his). When I heard that I laughed and said to Scottie "Well, Tahiti is a magical place!" ehehehe

Also, Scottie got me a Christmas present! I'd retweeted a link about a preorder for The Pirate Fairy, which I was excited about (Captain Hook is voiced by Hiddles!), and Scottie saw it and then was like "hey cutie... I got a thing" xD It won't be in until April, but it will be miiiiine as soon as it is available and Scottie is so amazing eeeee! :D
Hiddles weeeeeeeeeeee
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki frustrated)
So last time we saw N, he was all white except for the green mane and tail. I wanted to sort of represent his outfit in his paint scheme though, so I didn't want to just have a white coat.
N flailing in
INCOMING


At first I wanted to try and do tovero markings to represent the black undershirt he has, but I didn't really like how it turned out. And I wasn't 100% happy with the white. Then I decided that maybe I could be a little more flexable, and then I was inspired to paint him as a buckskin. He has tan pants, so it is in the colour scheme, and then I could do some of the other black markings without him looking like a cow.

DSCN4340.JPG

Still needs a lot of work, but he's coming along. I think I'm going to lighten the tan.

I have no idea how much sense I'm making as I should have gone to bed a few hours ago I have no idea what I'm doing
sleepy sherlock
milleniumgypsy: (Pokemon N- ferris wheel)
I forget if I had the painting days included in the sculpting challenge countdown or not. I'll assume that I did. lol

Last night I put down the very first base coat on the pony. I thought it was funny actually because the white looked sort of chalky and the green was darker than the colour was supposed to end up. I thought he looked like Joker!pony instead of N!pony. lol

Tonight I put down another layer of white, which is much better. I also painted a more minty shade on the mane and tail. Then it might need another coat, then I need to start working on patterning and detailing, and accessories! Hopefully I will be done soon. :3

N pony sculpt- starting paint!

Scottie was being awesome earlier tonight by doing his scottish accent again (which always makes me fangirl at him because it's super sexy ehehehe), and he was doing Day of the Doctor quotes at me with it. Some of them were silly of course so I was getting rather silly myself. Since we'd just seen that Sprint commercial with James Earl Jones and Malcom McDowell doing "Jenna's facebook activity", I couldn't help myself and quoted that he was the 'hottest hottie that ever hottied'. Then he started quoting the other silly stuff out of that commercial (totes mcgoats, amazeballs, totally adoooorbs, etc) at me in the scottish accent. It was hilarious and awesome. xD
Hiddles laugh
milleniumgypsy: (Pokemon N- grumpy heart)
Today I continued my pony sculpt! I wanted to do it yesterday, but since I felt so off I felt it was better to leave it be. I actually had started to do something with him, but I seriously felt like I was just going to do something I'd end up regretting.
The one thing I did do was fix one of his feet. Somehow when the body was baking one of his feet actually detached. o_O It was a really clean break and easy to fix, but I wasn't exactly thrilled to find the foot broken!

Today I sculpted on his mane! I think it turned out really well, especially since I hadn't really had a plan as to exactly what I was going to do when I sat down to sculpt. I attached the mane to the head partly by wire anchored in the armature of the head and neck. I actually sort of nailed a thicker piece of wire into the top of his head through the mane armature (which I realise I took no pictures of, oops!). Then I started sculpting!

Once I had that finished, I attached the tail. I had to remove some of the clay from the very top to more easily get it to how it needed to be, but I was really happy with how it turned out! I decided that texturing it wasn't necessary for the look I was going for. If I really need to, I can do something with paint.

Scottie said he was impressed with how successfully I was able to translate what I'd drawn in my sketch to the sculpt. :3
hiddles bless you for saying that

Here he is just before going into the oven!
N pony sculpt continued
Almost finished!

He's out of the oven now, cooling! I haven't had a chance yet to check to make sure that nothing went wrong during baking, but it looks ok so far. Then all that will be left will be painting and accessories!
milleniumgypsy: (Pokemon N- grumpy heart)
I didn't get quite as much sculpting done tonight as I'd have liked, I was pretty tired when I got home! I feel like the extra energy from walking in the snow plus the extra cold (it was -6 today when I was walking home!) is a bit more draining for my energy stores.

Still, I did some sculpting tonight! I bulked out the body and worked more on the legs. Now that I've worked on the barrel, he looks much better! He was looking a bit emaciated before. lol
DSCN4141.JPG

I was super excited about tonight's episode of SHIELD! It was set post Thor The Dark World, which was amazing. Of course I had to squee about all of the Asgardian stuffs!
hiddles a bit excited
I've really enjoyed the last couple of episodes especially. :D

A short note about the Voice! I didn't watch the "live" results show, but when I was walking home I looked at my phone on a lark because someone had friended me on twitter and the phone vibrated. It had been too cold to do anything on my phone while I was walking home otherwise, I needed to keep my hands in my pockets to keep in as much heat as possible. It just so happened that the Voice live tweeting save thing was set to happen just then! Spoilers for me since the show wasn't even aired here yet, but Kat was on the bottom. I was afraid of that! So I tweeted my save for her. It turns out she didn't make it but I feel better that at least I was able to do that.
But I mean seriously, I was on a trail in the middle of woods in the dark in below zero temps tweeting to save my last artist on this show. I found that somewhat ridiculous! xP That live tweeting save thing is ridiculous though, because the live showings aren't actually aired live everywhere. e_e
milleniumgypsy: (Pokemon N- ferris wheel)
Today I did some more sculpting on the N pony! I finished sculpting the legs, which might not sound like a lot but I did quite a bit. lol I got them to where I liked them, and put them baking. I just pulled them out actually!
I also started prepping card stock for ear armatures. Tomorrow I should be able to attach the legs and finish the body sculpt, as well as sculpt on the ears. Besides that, all that's left is the mane and tail! I haven't quiiiiite decided how I'm going to make N's fluffy hair. xD
I'm assuming sculpting but I'm kind of tempted to do something with wool.

Frankie and Jinafire are checking out the progress with Draculaura!pony. :3
DSCN4128.JPG

I'm happy with how things are coming along.

In other news, I'm at 97 followers on tumblr! xD I know that's not a lot compared to some people but I'm excited lol. Scottie asked how many were Hiddles fans and I said that made up a large majority of my followers. Also that I feel like my blog is a katamari ball for my fellow Hiddlestoners and Loki minions. Scottie asked if my katamari ball was made of pudding, and if it had a mustache. I said yes! And also that it had horns.
Hiddles Steve pride and joy
I love Scottie so much! ehehehe xD

So tired, going to go pass out now. I'm totally pulling a ferret right now. DO ALL THE THINGS WEEEEEE-*falls asleep*
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki incredulous)
Tonight I decided to pull my N pony out of the fridge and start sculpting on that again. I am again cursing my past self for doing it in Super Sculpey, but that's old news for those of you not new here by this point. xD WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE I AM SO SPOILED BY PREMO NOW

I know that I have rods cut around here somewhere for legs but I have no idea where those went. I can use them for my upcoming Loki pony, or other ponies or other sculpts or whatever when I find them again. I decided to just make new leg armatures. I found some other metal rods and cut them with my aviator snips. It was interesting because the snips aren't actually quite sharp enough to get through the rods so I got them started and then finished cutting them by using my foot instead. It works but the rods went shooting off randomly and it took a while to find them again.

I got clay conditioned (since N is so big, he uses a lot of clay!). I sculpted the front legs and got the back legs started. I should probably use foil in the upper part of the hind legs, but that's something for tomorrow.

Lagoona is here modeling with N tonight in honor of tonights Grimm episode. xD
N pony sculpt continued
Dunno if I'm the best ghoul for the job but I'll do my best!

In this picture you can see my finished Draculaura pony in the background.
N pony sculpt continued

I'm excited to be working on my sculpts again. :3

In other news, I've had an interesting evening. When I got home from work, I sat on the couch with Scottie, leaned on his knee... and fell asleep. I jumped and woke myself up, and then Scottie asked if I wanted to cuddle with him (he was playing a video game at the time). I said sure, and cuddled up with him while he played... and fell asleep again. I then woke myself up because I started making some sort of noise because I was having a bad dream. I was so embarassed! I said I was being like the ferret, sometimes he makes scared sounds in his sleep. I sort of fell asleep again. I felt a bit better after the nap. Scottie said that I was loopy though, and that I was trying to make up for acting like a scared ferret by acting like a cat instead. lol

My brain has also been quite the box of cats today and I don't know why (at least, why more than usual).
Loki unsettled
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki throwing up horns)
Hey guys! I finalized my costume design! I took the armour and jacket and sort of merged it into a battle dress. xD It's an imperfect drawing, but I was only focused on getting out a design. I have never done a fashion drawing before actually, but I don't think they're terribly concerned with the realism of the model. lol
My Lady Loki costume design
Please ignore the fact that my model looks like an alien giraffe

I'm not sure exactly what materials I'm going to use. The real costume is leather of course, but that's expensive and heavy. Expensive is the more important thing here though. I'm more concerned with it looking good though over comfort, because if it looks like crap because I have the wrong fabric why did I bother, ya'know? I'm considering looking to snag some thrift store/ebay/etc leather trench coats or something to cannibalize.

I've been trying to figure out exactly how the back of the costume works (the flowy bits in the back are my most favorite design element), but I wasn't having the best luck finding good reference photos of the back. I have seen useful video though, though that can be a hazardous proposition. "Oh, I'm just watching this for, erm, research!" *afterward* "Oops, wasn't paying attention to what I meant to! Gotta watch it again I guess, daaarn."
Loki that was the plan
Shhhhhhhh Loki!

Unrelated, we also started to make candles tonight! I took a couple of pictures of the process, they're under the cut if you want to see them. Basically we need candles for ritual, and we can't ever find the right colours, and we want unscented candles because we burn incense but the large majority of candles seem to be scented already... so we got a candle making kit and are trying out making our own. We just wanted to try some simple white votives for a first try.

My mom used to make fancy candles when I was growing up, so I have a bit of an idea of how it works. If I was currently speaking to my mom, I would consider asking her about it. xP

I was planning on doing more this weekend, but I actually ended up being really sick. e_e Because of this I haven't been quite as productive as I would have hoped, but I don't think I did too terrible.

I did play Borderlands 2 with Scottie more, we are at an important story point and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA THE FEELS
