Even in the toughest of trials, there is always time for a smile.

I love this shot of us taken during our first outdoor shoot of Bahamut after coming home from C2e2 Global Championships. It was the first time I put him on since coming home, we hadn’t seen him unpacked from his bags until this moment and we were all just excited that he survived going to AND from Chicago without a scratch.
I sure made him tough, huh!

Crossing the Thunder Plains

Plain of lightning, plain of thunder. Those who cross are torn asunder. 

I’m so happy to release this first shot of Bahamut’s photoshoot. This shot will be a part of Project Book: GRAND SUMMONING (order at the Shop now).

Featuring Taffles as Yuna

I had a really good day. So I wanted to share some of it with you.

Good evening everyone~

Just wanted to let you know that I had a really nice day today. Nothing special happened. I went to work, then karate, then came home. But I just had a really nice day and I was (and still am) in a really lovely mood and I just wanted you all to know.

I hope you are also having a lovely day. If not, I hope some of my good mood can find its way to you.

Pic unrelated. I just like this bag.

TUTORIAL TUESDAY: Freehand Patterning Chest Armour

G’day Wirrudos!!
Welcome to our first Tutorial Tuesday on the Official Home of Repeat til CRYYYYY!!!

This week’s crafty idea is how to pattern a chest plate/torso armour from scratch without any help!!!

Tip: to keep your pattern symmetrical and avoid wonky titties, draw everything on a folded piece of paper. Then you can unfold the pattern to get a symmetrical design. (I didn’t do this… so you can notice my titties are a little wonky D: D: D: )We made some man-titties/pecs with this pattern in the photos. But you can use these exact same steps to make booby plates too.
The only difference in making booby plates will be:

  • You will draw round boobies in Step 2
  • Your underboob line in Step 3 will be a tiny bit curvier
  • In Step 5 you’ll be adding more darts under that underboob line
    Comments and questions are 9000% welcome <3
    Happy crafting. Remember to CUT THE BITCHES, and most importantly, Repeat Til Cry! Now, let’s go make some freehand tittays!

Bakugou Katsuki – The salty shit that grew on me

Bakugo to me in a sentence is: I AM CONSTANTLY ANGRY BUT AT THE CORE I’M A GOOD GUY WITH A RIGHTEOUS HEART BUT FUCK YOU ALL DIE DIE DIE.

Look I couldn’t stand Bakugou at first. But recently he’s finally grown on me.

His character from the get go was set up to go down the “Sasuke” path so hard – the whole ‘being a genius, then having his derpy friend suddenly become a strong rival, then wanting to be stronger but suffers defeat so feels even more salty, then just at the most vulnerable moment villains come try convert him to evil” thing.

Ak Wirru
WHO THE FUCK JUST CALLED ME SASUKE??!??!

So I’m really proud of him for not going down that Sasuke path because I was dreading having to deal with that. I admire the author so much for not writing him down that path. Instead, Bakugou is given a strong friendship with Kirishima, someone who’s not his main rival, and a precious relationship with his parents that help keep him grounded from turning villain.

This also opens him up to become a very fresh rival/anti-hero type character: he doesn’t go evil, he doesn’t get an edgy tormented childood, he’s pure at heart and very straightfoorward with himself… he’s JUST A LITTLE SALTY PIECE OF SHIT!
