Meeting Guillermo del Toro!!! He was incredibly nice :) I got a giant hug!
The greatest thing about Mako is I know my female cousins from my mother’s side would identify so much with her, as I did.
I was brought up by a Chinese mother. Not to say that the Japanese and Chinese culture are interchangeable, but there are similarities. Like how we…
I went to New York ComicCon this weekend. My friend and I dressed up as Dawn and Holly Granger of the Hawk and Dove fame. It turned out great!
Our suits are made from metallic spandex. I added felt to Hawk’s cape to make it more sturdy. Our masks are cut from some kind of cloth/plastic mix and painted to acrylics.
Following my previous Bob’s Burgers theme, this is my attempt at making a Tina doll. I designed the pattern on my own :)
She is made with Lily cotton yarns and I used 6mm safety eyes.
How important or unimportant are these two things to you in superhero comics?
I ask because I have been told more than once when writing a well-known character that ‘the readers HATE it’ when they have a romance plot.
It’s felt, for example, that many readers will hate anyone Wonder Woman…
This is a wonderful amazing question that really needs to be addressed. I don’t think romance ruins the stories, I’ve been running a blog for 4 or 5 years that dedicates itself to relationships in the nerdy world. I’ve never felt that relationships ruin story. I will agree, sometimes it feels a little forced, like Mary Jane and Peter, but on the other end of the spectrum, some comics just wouldn’t of been the same without it, flip of the coin Gwen Stacey was an amazing love intrest for Peter. And women and love stories, I will admit that sometimes it is tough to see any of the more badass women in comics find guys worth it. But that is why I like relationships like Lois and Clark or Bruce and Dianah so much; Lois is such a badass that the only man capable of winning her heart had to be able to lift her off her feet. Dianah and Bruce I feel very similar about, but twisted. We all know Batman is almost unstopable, an intelegent God wouldn’t even try to pick a fight with him, you have to crazy just to do so, he is practically an unstopable force that has more then once proven he can take down other Gods like Superman, and yet here comes Wonder Woman, the only woman badass enough to really stop the Dark Knight, and not just woman, anyone; she is the only one I’ve ever seen make the God Damn Batman kneel and stop what he was doing because she told him to(and beat him up). Super Heroes will always have relationship issues as long as human being continue to have relationship issues, because no matter how super they are, they are still only human, except Bruce, he’s a Bat.
I just started watching Bob’s Burgers, and I have to say, Louise is awesome. My friend Kim wanted me to make her a Louise crochet doll, so I used this pattern from Ham and Eggs.
All the yarn is from Lily Cotton yarns, except the Hot Pink, which is Turkish cotton yarn that I had purchased in upstate New York. I used 6mm safety eyes and lots of stuffing.
Another delayed xmas/birthday gift! This is part two of my Final Fantasy themed gift for a few of my friends. I got this lovely chocobo pattern from Talli’s Etsy page and it turned out great! I also did not realize how big the chocobo came out to be. I’m so happy that it’s finally completed :)
I used Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarns. For the eyes, I glued on felt instead of crocheting them because I the colors pop out better.
