Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) posted an update to the ongoing measles outbreaks in the U.S. According to the CDC, there have been 592 measles cases since the beginning of the year — which means that with four months left to go, this year’s outbreaks are already the biggest since the disease was virtually eradicated in 2000.
I contributed a 3-page story to the Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary anthology! Unfortunately, they rejected the third page of it because ‘Sanrio doesn’t want Hello Kitty associated with an actual cat in any way.’
So anyway, they just decided to use the first two pages and end it there. I’m including the third page here so you can see how it actually would have ended.
This was a lot of fun for me. It was nice to relax the ‘correctness’ muscles in my brain and do something kind of abstract and nonsensical. Fun shapes and colours to play with too. Also, totally inspired by Metroid. :)
what a damn shame. So cute!

Hans Kokx (@Hadak) took some beautiful photos of my Aurora costume at DragonCon 2014, which are GREAT. You should go see them www.flickr.com/photos/hadak/sets/72157646897978860/with/1…
But my favorite part of wearing this at DC was going out of the convention area and getting smiles from the locals. This little boy in particular was blown away by a fairy princess hanging out on his playground. He was very earnest about getting to play with my gigantic sword too. Almost dented it, but letting him play with it was totally worth the smiles. :D

There was a sense of irony when the strongly anti-NSA, pro-privacy users of the social network Reddit began gloating over the privacy-destroying leak of celebrity nude photos. Privacy, it seemed, only applied to Reddit users — for celebrities, no such luck. But now there’s a starker example of the double standard: the Reddit user responsible for bringing the hacked photos into the public eye has decried an invasion of his privacy by the media.
just for fairness his username is johnsmcjohn, his real name (presumably) is John Randall Meneses, and here’s his photo
FUCKING LOL YOU IDIOTIC SHITPARADE
I’ve managed to take pictures of the details and put together some quick coords before it got too dark.

Such a detail report ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆
Hans graciously agreed to take photos of me in my very fully hand made costume at Dragon*Con this year. I learned to make a crown, a giant prop sword, fairy wings, sew a dress (eek) and learned to make my thickest wig yet. Ka-pow! Thank you very much for these!
And for those that wonder, I’m dressed as Aurora, the main character from the indie Ubisoft game, Child of Light. If you like RPG’s, care about good art, and like your adventuring party made of strong girls, stronger mice, and clever men then it may be the game for you!
