I'd like to say it was hard work, but I'd be lying. It was fun and I definitely learned a lot of what I can and cannot do. So I'm happy. And this is one of my favorite panels in the GN. Still undecided on what I should do. If I make a tote, then it might get ruined, but I'd like to rock the shit out of it. So I might make it, and eventually cut it and hang it on my wall. Yes, I like it that much. (Or I can stop being a chicken and do what I really wanted: a big mural in my bedroom. What do you mean I'm crazy?)

Well I'm glad at least something I tried to make is turning out ok. I was feeling pretty crappy for a while there. But today I got an idea, a little different from what I'd been doing before, and I'm a very happy panda now.

Being me, I can still mess it up, but I think the hardest part is done already. I just need to buy the rest of the colors (which will be tricky, but I can always mix them myself) and do a paint by numbers sort of thing xD After that it will probably become a tote. It could have been a pillow, but I only had canvas to try. If anyone is interested once I'm finished, I might make a few more.

If you already saw this on Twitter, I apologize.

This is... I don't know what it is. I don't write fan fiction and I suck at doing good fan art, so this is just an idea that I had. Enjoy!

Um, this handy cut will help me out. )

I decided to buy my sister a birthday gift and since she's a hat person I figured she would appreciate owning a fedora. They were so cheap that I had to buy one for myself. And you know what I realized?

So, you know, stuff happened. Guys, I support cosplaying but I've never done it so this is really very weird for me. Anyway, I still think it's a funny picture.

These are my thoughts on yaoi Watchmen.

A little over 10 days to go for the Director's Cut release and I am way too excited about it, especially now that I have seen how a lot of the stuff that was missing might be included- this will make it the best movie ever. Unquestionable.

Hollis' death and Dan's reaction are a shoe-in, thankfully. I love that scene with Dan's reaction, because he had always been in control of his emotions up until then, but he completely loses it when he is confronted with a direct tragedy. Even if he had always been out there seeing injustice and death (which could have desensitized him) this wasn't some random person off the streets, it was his friend and mentor and someone he knew very well and cared for deeply. I do believe that in the theatrical cut of the movie they still achieved a sense of it by having him cry out like he did after Manhattan killed Rorschach. That is something I would have loved to see in the graphic novel because it means that Rorschach’s death mattered to someone, and he finally had someone to mourn him. Alan Moore didn’t give him that.

And speaking of that crazy redhead, he finally gets to be the voice of reason for once. Not only does he stop Dan -who has been merrily pounding on some random Knot Top- but he tries to comfort him.

R: “Merely suggesting that by finding mask killer can have revenge for Mason’s death. Meant to comfort you”

D: “Who in their right mind could take comfort from… Yeah, okay. Thanks Rorschach. Really, thank you.”

R: “You’re welcome”

Now this has to be one of the main reasons why he seems to be everyone's favorite character. It's not because he's sexy or such a bamf or cool, it's because he's so complex. Even after everything he has gone through, after living the way he has, he can still pull out his softer and more human side, one that had been hidden under the mask repressed for so long, to comfort his only friend.

Still, both these scenes, as much as I like them, are deeply tied to the scene with Walter's landlady- or at least they are to me.
TL;DR if anyone reads it they get a cookie. )

I have a couple more lj themes to share because the world needs more JEH LJ themes. Now, the first one is my old layout which I am putting up for grabs now that I'm done with it.

- All of these are to be used in the Custom CSS section of your theme customization panel, and work on Flexible Squares.

- Please upload the header image to your own host.

I have decided to make Mini Rory a tiny celebratory can of beans. I'm really excited about the already pre-ordered DVD. But now I can't wait until it gets here! D:

Beans!!! )
I already tweeted this, but I was just so glad someone finally said it:

"I feel like Black Freighter will just fuck everything the shit up." #

Really, I did love Black Freighter on it's own, but I'm dubious as to how well they will be able to splice it in the movie. Also, I don't have Blu-Ray and don't intend to switch any time soon. Now, if the Ultimate Edition comes out on DVD, then I'd have to think about it, if only for the scene of Walter at the newsstand asking for his copy of The New Frontiersman- but I'm hoping it will be on the Director's Cut already.

Have I been posting way too much about Watchmen? I appologize. See, I ditched all my other fandoms about a month ago and I never looked back. I got tired of House because it was always pretty much the same, and I hate Huddy. I got behind on Lost and now it just feels like way too much work catching up. I don't think anyone can blame me for running away from Heroes like if it was infected with Swine Flu. Wtf happened Heroes? You used to be cool.

Well, I've been really coveting those Rum Runner shirts, and I planned to make myself one but since I already had everything I needed to make a tote... I ended up with a Rum Runner tote XD I love it!

I was lucky enough to get my sewing machine working properly today- she can be such a bitch sometimes. Sure, the thread got cut a couple of times but all in all, it was good. I admit I could have put a little more effort on perfecting the print, but I was anxious to get it done and to not have the kitty jump on it before it was dry.

Just a regular tote.

And the purple lining gives it a nice touch. XD I wish it was pinstriped.

Sorry for those who already saw it on Twitter. :)

That's when Watchmen opens at my local movie theatres. 15 more days!! Those bitches! So, until then, I need to vent.

Today I bring you mini Rorschach. My computer crashed hard yesterday and I was left to my own devices, so I got crafty.
