NaNoWriMo

Helllllllo and all of that.

I have, not too long ago, just arrived in my extended holiday location and started to unpack and settle down. That's part of the reason I haven't made any posts in a bit. The other part is that I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year and it's taking up a lot of my free time.

There's a few sections of video I've recorded and a couple of projects that will either end up here on the blog or in a You Tube video when they're ready.


How was everyone's Halloween? Mine was super fun! I haven't had a costume in a long time and I went as a pilot aviator dealie. A very loose interpretation, anyway. Here's my costume:


My pants aren't that interesting. They're brown pants I had that I did a little editing on thanks to this tutorial by Luai_lashire and I have thick army green socks. I was working on some spats, but they didn't get done in time for my parties. Oh well. Not the end of the world!




Originally I was wearing that white scarf, but I lent it to the other person so we could do a pilot and mechanic style picture shoot with my friend, Jasmin the Photographer. That's her legal name. I swear.



This is the costume I made for Flora. n...n I recorded making some of this so I might pop part of it in a video. I'm especially proud of her shoes (which you can't see well in this photo, sorry..) because I made up the pattern all by myself! It's hard to get a baby to hold still for putting on costumes and I had to cut her beard in a real hurry right before we left, but I think she pulled off David the Gnome fairly well for a 2'+ tall female human.

If anyone wants to get on each others' writing buddy lists if you're doing NaNoWriMo too, add me and let me know about it! You'll find me at:: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/570479 and be sure to tell me your link in the comments so I can go add you too. Also, post me links or pictures of your Halloween costumes if you like.






Now, in closing, ShadowedSunbeam, from You Tube, told me they liked zombie, man eating baby pictures and I said I'd post them in a blog post. So here they are::





This is the "make things faster!!" face she gives me while I work.


 And this is her beauty shot. She was feeling insecure about all the crazy faces she was making and requested I add a more flattering one.


I hope that satisfies the zombie baby request alright. I mean, I could get out the face paints, but I'm not sure she's old enough for stage makeup.


Happy day, all!
