Writer's Block: Peace of mind

What kind of spiritual or meditative practice keeps you feeling zen?

I meditate every morning when I wake up, and every night before I go to bed to centre myself before and after work.

Update time!

 So I've finally managed to get a nice chunk of time off work (4 days in a row, whoo!) and I've gotten back into writing my novel, which is awesome, and so good for me because I feel like I've been neglecting my novel in favour of writing fanfic. Sofar I'm up to 12,000 words in two days, so hopefully I'll be nearly done cleaning up and editing what I've written so far before I go back to work on Wednesday.

My costume for LFCC is almost complete, I still need to make the towel for my pocket, and do a face paint test, but that should all be done by Wednesday as well, so I'll get some pictures up either before LFCC if I get time, or after.

So, yeah, that's about all that's been going on with me, boring really, but I will eventually get around to doing something interesting, I promise=D 


Rest In Peace: Ryan Dunn

I posted my memorial to Ryan Dunn on my blog, so pop over and take a look if you want. I've disabled comments there, but post here if you wanna say anything.



Letters To Cosplay

So I was reading through the forums on Cosplay Island and came across a forum called 'Letters to Cosplay' which is inspired by the 'Letters to your characters' threads you get during NaNoWriMo time. So, here is the letters to my cosplays.

Ruby 2.0 (Supernatural)
Dear Ruby,
Why  must you wear a leather jacket? It's rather hot to walk around in all the time at a con, and I don't like being all hot and sweaty. Also, why are you so short? Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a Sam Winchester that is taller than me? (I'm 5'7. 5'10 in your shoes) 
Other than that you are a marvelously easy person to be, so thank you for being such a fabulous closet cosplay =D 

Chuck (Supernatural)
Thank you for being by far the easiest cosplay I've ever had to make! PJs and a dressing gown! You are my idol. =D 
However, fake beards are rather expensive, and I'm allergic to face paints, so please, shave your beard a little! Just so that I don't have to wear quite so much face paint.

Gwen Cooper (Torchwood)
Again a girl in leather, I don't like being all sweaty! And please, stop with the heeled boots! Just because I can walk in them doesn't mean I want to.
Also, stop flirting with Jack, Ianto doesn't like it and may well give you decaff coffee for the rest of your life.


Jeff Hardy (WWE/TNA pro wrestler)
Stop with the tattoos, please? I'm right handed, and drawing the sleeve on your right arm is proving to be an immense challenge. It's also getting a little out of hand, in the time it took me to track down your insanely expensive trousers, you had gotten three more tats. Please, for the love of cosplay, give it a rest man.
And while I'm talking about excessiveness, PICK A DAMN HAIR COLOUR! The constant colour changing is quite distracting from your matches, and it also makes it impossible for fellow hair dye addicts like myself to pick a colour to dye my hair when I'm trying to be you.
But you are an amazing cosplay, despite being a face paint/hair dye/ tattoo addict.

So there you have it, these are more like letters to the characters/ people I'm cosplaying, but still, enjoy.

Cosplay Plans =D

 So it looks like I may well be able to make LFCC this year, but only on the Saturday, which works fine for me. I may be taking my younger sister with me this year, she went last year and wants to go in costume if she goes again, so I'm helping her put together a Hit Girl costume (the school uniform).

My cosplay is almost complete, I just have to wait for the trousers to finish on Ebay and hope I win them, and buy some plue and orange face paints. With any luck I should be able to take some test shots next week if everything has arrived by then. So keep an eye out for the pics post once I get everything together =D

I was a bit naughty and ordered a WWE Heavyweight Championship belt off Ebay last night to add to my costume, cos I think the extras make it all worth while in the long run, plus I can use the costume for Mem B'ham in November, and probably on  New Year's Eve as well. =D 

So, yeah, that's all for now folkies, oh yeah, well done to Mimi on Twitter who guessed that my cosplay is going to be Jeff Hardy (WWE/TNA wrestler)



Cosplay Clue #5

 Here's today's cosplay clue: 

Guesses in the comments or to my Twitter

Also, while I'm on the subject of cosplay, I need one more costume that I can afford to put together for Birmingham Memoribilia in November. Anyone got any ideas? 


 So I've been kinda locked in my own head for a while now, working through some stuff that happened a long time ago. I know I should have probably been over it after it happened, and I thought I was over it, but things have happened lately, and the other person involved got in contact again and it just threw a whole load of shit my way =/

Anyway, while I was trying to work through all this stuff, poetry happened, which is odd because I haven't written any poetry since I was about 16. Hopefully this doesn't suck as bad as I think it does. =/  Feedback appreciated.





Poem This Way... Collapse )




Guess my next cosplay!

 Clue 1
 Clue 2

Ookie dokie, I'm doing this on my Twitter account, postingpics and getting people to guess what my next cosplay isgoing to be, so here's the first three clues I've left so far.

No one over there has got it yet, so let's see if any of you guys will guess right. =D 

Comment your guesses, and I'll keep posting clues until someone gets it right =D 




At the end of 6x21 I was so close to bursting into tears it was unreal. There's something so beautiful about watching Dean cry that it just makes me well up as well.

Yeah, so that pretty much sums up my thoughts on that episode.

It did take me a while to work out what the heck the multiple Sam thing was about in 6x22, and when I finally worked it out I kinda went 'aaaaaaaaaah' and laughed like a loon. Did I feel smart? Hell no, I felt like a complete twat for not working it out earlier. =/

Yeah, that's about all I paid attention to, except for the fact that I managed to predict both deaths, and what the ending of the season would be, about three months ago =D *is proud* 


A Real Update! It's Not A Fic!

Woop Woop! I have BIG plans for Asylum 6.

Firstly, I'm dying my hair blue, and investing in some rather interesting clothes to make my photo shoots look different and crazy and all around epic!

My current plan is to rock a Hardy Boyz style look for the pics, with crazy hair, mental clothes and all round coolness. =D Cos yeah, I'm secretly still 14 years old and <3 all things pro wrestling.

Party costumes are completely sorted, all I need to do is make it all fit in the case now and I'll be good to go =D 


There is more Bam/ Dunn fic to come once I find someone to read over what I've written so far. But I have it here so feel free to take a look. Let me know how you think it reads cos I'm not overly happy with the characters at the moment. 


Fic Below CutCollapse )
