you can’t just erase my favorite characters and their entire history and the reason i love them so much and then bring them back in a new context and expect me to care

Colin’s baby came out a couple of days ago - a space battle game for Win8/WP8. He was the art director on the game and created aaaaaamaaaaazing concepts of the spaceships we get to play with.. I want them to become little models, especially the teal one. check ‘em out!!!

A collection of Damien sass, gathered for your amusement (or your tears, that’s up to you).

Ruining my squeaky clean on-topic track record because Damian’s death is quite possibly the last drop to overflow the cup that is my frustration with DC Comics lately.

Just, WHY.

A as 1966 Robin

Planning a pretty stellar photoshoot when the rain stops. Until then, will be posting some progress stuff & detail shots soon.

Lo & the Classic Iron Man costume we made together. The Arc Reactor & palm lasers glow, but it was too bright.

Progress photos & Robin coming up.

An update

Things have been busy over here in the Aidan world and I have a lot to tell you guys!

But most excitedly I wanted to tell you that I’m the new cosplay writer over at Comic Booked and my first article should be out sometime next week! I’ve been encouraged to write about whatever suits my fancy, so I have a lot of loose ideas on subjects I think i want to cover, such as costume assembly tips and round-ups from the conventions I go to, but also spotlights on individual cosplayers/groups and things like that!

So if you have any ideas or questions for stuff you want to see (or if you want to be a spotlight!), send me a message. Please do!!!

As far as this blog goes, look for some updates soon on making Lo an Iron Man costume. see also: ahhhhhhhhhhhh!

Mythos gets his own special Nonesuch Garden tag! (Read more about it here.) Mythos is going fast! He will never be offered again after my Kickstarter ends. So if you love him, now is the time to pounce!

hey. HEY HEY.
my friend Megan has a new Kickstarter up for her awesome Nonesuch Dolls and everyone should go throw her a couple’a bucks toward some kickass packaging & certificates. in addition to helping a small (and adorable) business, the rewards are super cute!!!

This is really fucking clever.

Haha. Shit. This is brilliant.

Some con shots of my Hyde costume from Steamcon this year, which included way too many snaps ever. At some point we’ll have to get proper photographs of the costume, including the little details you can’t see in these shots, sadly.

S as Olivia the Pig from Olivia Saves the Circus, also known as: In Which I Drafted & Patterned the Tiniest Tailcoat Everrrrrrrrrr

So I don’t have any photographs of the boys on Halloween, on account I wasn’t there and as it was Halloween night, it would have been too dark for proper photographs. It’ll probably be a bit before we get some good shots of them, as Seattle’s now in its fantastic perpetual rain period, so planning in advance for things like photoshoots isn’t really a good idea. Have to think of some good locations for a Creeper and Beast Boy photo shoots, too.

So here’s some belated photos of Astro Boy!
