Quick tip before I dive back into prepping for finals:
If any of y’all are (or know) Eridan cosplayers and want some decent pants at a fairly reasonable price, Lip Service (if that link doesn’t work or it sends you to the main page, you want ‘sale’ and ‘jeans’, and the style is near the bottom of the first page of results) is having a huge sale — 40% off everything tomorrow and 50% off on Monday. That style runs average-to-small in size, is blue denim with black stripes painted on, and is what I wore during PAX. Go 1-2 sizes up if you want them to be baggy and don’t mind wearing a belt. They also have black w/red or gray stripes if hemoswap appeals to you or you just like striped jeans. The only size that seems to be sold out is 24/approx. size 0-1 in regular pants, and they go up to a 32 waist. There’s a sale code on the main page.
ETA: Today’s code is “TAKEITOFF”. The gray striped ones appear to be sold out, but the red and blue are still around.
:) Just thought I’d peep, in case anyone is cool with paying $20-25 for a pair of pre-striped jeans. (Yes, sales are my favorite way to acquire cosplay gear. Mmmm, sales.)
I’ll be back in a week, and we’ll see how far I can get in the month I have off! Guys, I miss you so much. ;_;
Ugh, I’m super-sorry guys. I’m not done here by any means, but I did get eaten by a wild school (I’m studying apparel design! woo!) and haven’t had a lot of time for reading non-school things. :<
I’m going to try to figure out a workable update schedule based around my assignments soon, though. This week was just rough. ^^;;;
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
Next up: multiple photosets of porn as drawn by one Dirk Strider, interspersed with chatlog ‘caps for spice. So hot. So…..wrong.
(this is going to take me a little while because I am pulling some shenanigans.)
Oh sweet galloping majestic wild stallions. This entire sequence is epic. Also, TERRIBLE. But mostly epic.
I love how Dirk is all, “Eeyyyy no problem. Porn for the weirdo on the internet, sure. A-okay,” and uu just continues ranting.
I admit, I was under the impression that you were going to kill her anyway? Not sure why you’re trying to use that as a threat to someone who is willing to abide by your commands, but…okay. ._. Also, cripes, if that’s how he treats people with whom he plays games, I wouldn’t want to play with him. He’s clearly the kid who breaks all his friend’s toys.
…I can’t wait.
Gosh, this is a terrible circumstance to be in, but I really like the visual.
…….I. No, really. Dirk is fucking busy, dude. Now is not the time.
(….also, oh, god. WHY.)
…and suddenly I am in the midst of a mild fit of what might be referred to as “L.M.A.O.” But really…
DIrk has got all his irons in the fire right now. Try again later.
Or earlier. That works too.
Well, that’s intriguing. So they type in grey for similar reasons that Karkat does. Mutants! …This does make me wonder where Karkat would fall on the hemospectrum if his blood were not mutated. Hm. This is probably entirely irrelevant, but interesting to contemplate.
Indeeeeed. It does make one very curious as to exactly what happened with the limebloods. They aren’t really mentioned anywhere else that I can recall.
They’re really sweet.
But wasn’t Caliborn talking about Lil Cal as a juju? What are these shenanigans about? …Hnmm.
Huh. This has interesting ramifications re: Lil Cal and its presence in the lives of multiple Striders across multiple universes. (FWIW, possibly the thing that creeps me out the most. ITS FACE IS SO ….KNOWING.)
Oh, sweetie. :(
Also, yes. I mean, just based on what we’ve seen with the kids and trolls, you need at least Space and Time, right? :| One person can’t (last I checked, maybe I’m wrong?) have multiple aspects. Oh, durrr, that would probably be one of the indications that the Alpha kids would have a fruitless session, wouldn’t it. Herpaderp. x_x;; Have I gotten that before now, or am I really just that slow?
(If I haven’t mentioned this before, I have an epically shitty memory for certain things like, oh, /plot points/. Visuals I’m not terrible with most of the time, but that’s a large part of the reason I started doing this in the first place. ^_^;)
Yay! Calliope! …Her responses are very interesting. They’ve been getting more and more curt over the last while, at least initially, as she seems to mellow out quickly, especially if the kid in question asks about what is going on in her life. The way she talks to each kid is different, too. She’s a lot more friendly and almost-but-not-quite-flirty (?) with Roxy, which I suspect is more Roxy than anything else, because she’s like that with pretty much everyone. ^_^; But there’s a slight awkwardness with Jane.
Pffffft, yeah. Going from a suburban home life full of taxidermied grandpa and Hallway Cera to Crypts and Helium is….that would get to me, too. Nevermind the clowns.
Yay! :D …I can’t help it. For some reason Dads are one of my weird JOY things in Homestuck. *shrug* Everyone’s got a thing, right?
All of these things are good points. Got to admit, though, I’m starting to really mistrust anything that spends a lot of time on exposition. AR being a program, it makes sense that it would have a stronger ability to deliberate probabilities and other such things, but. But.
….Thanks, guy. :P
AR is pretty much the sassiest artificial intelligence. Jane has a deadpan wit that allows her to sass it back. I enjoy their pesterlogs. ^_^
…and of course AR has the solution to the obelisk problem. *mashes head on desk* So simple!
Man. Now if she wants to continue, she’s going to have to leave the level and come back in again. :/ Unless it’s one of those super-shitty ones that don’t reset when you leave, in which case she is screwed. Oh well~~~
If that note is any indication, that is exactly what her Dad would want. She needs some Janegrit added to her stats.
