Right now I am nearing that feeling, haven't had much sleep/rest so far this week... sure I probably shouldn't have drunk that one giant pumpkin spice latte... the doctor did say "No caffeine!"... but... but... OK... fiiine, I have no excuses, I was just being bad and now I am paying for it.
Anyway, I managed to be in a good mood anyhow, why you ask? Well, first off, we scored spots to go to the pre-opening of the New Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World thanks to my D23 membership (it is an official Disney fan club, yup, I am a Disney geek, I could try and hide it, but... it would be embarrassing to do so, really).
Also, Andrei gifted me these:
|Behold! Every other cosplayer and otaku's dream!|
He ordered them from thinkgeek.com, I love that store and I might just buy every single birthday/Christmas gift my geeky friends get from there... yeah, I love my geeky peeps.
The package got here today and I could hardly wait to get them out of the package:
|Easy peasy instructions right on the top as you open the box.|
|Ears on the headband.|
Do they work? Yes, at least on me they do. To do a test run I wore them while playing Skyrim... because apparently that's my other all consuming hobby nowadays, Andrei took video... be warned, it might be overly long, boring and like 98% of the population, we both dislike how our voices sound when recorded, it's all a matter of perception I guess.
Yes, that's the top of my head... you can tell I have played the game a lot since my character kills bosses like it's no big deal.
After all that excitement I managed to come up with a couple of quick doodles:
|Halloween Kitteh! - red and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 7 mins.|
Also, I did a quick gesture drawing, it really has no back story, maybe it is a house keeper going over to see what her neighbor needs across the way:
|The Neighbor Calls - red mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 4 mins.|
