A Cosplay Diary: Idea

28 May

Meet Madame Masque. She’s all burnt up under that mask and emotionally charbroiled in the inside, but she sure does looks cool in that outfit carrying those badass guns.

Here’s a full figure type pic:I got my buddy Kerry from H.S. to help me make this ensemble due to my shatty  (no not shitty, shAtty) sewing skills. Kerry is a costume designer for theatres in the NYC area. I got me some connections. 🙂

Anyway. We’ll meet sometime next week to figure out a plan of execution then go from there.

In the meantime I got some wicked awesome boots to start the look of the costume, to set the mood kinda. What do you think?:

Suck it all you bought in Ricky’s Wonder Woman costume cosplay wannabes! Now… where can a girl buy a big cool fake gun and some gold spray paint?

I’ll keep you guys updated on the progression of this monster.

How to NEVER pay for a college textbook again…

21 May

especially if you’re a member of a SUNY college.

This is the deal. I went to college a SUNY college and was too cheap/poor to pay $200 or more a book per class so I did a bit of research and found out the following.

Go to your college library and ask if they participate in the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) program. You can borrow books/DVD’s/film/anything for longer than through your own college library and there are several “textbook only” libraries within the Interlibrary Loan program. Finally (in most cases) YOU don’t have to pay ANY late fees!! I borrowed all my necessary textbooks for a WHOLE SEMESTER every year! Even though the textbooks I borrowed (from textbook libraries around the country) did rack up mucho dinero in fines, my school paid the fines in the end, not me. The thing is that if you rent a book (or books <you can borrow several at a time>) through the program and keep it for a long enough time you will build up fines and since technically your school is borrowing the book(s) from another school, not you, your school pays the fines. After almost a semester worth of fines your school will yell at you to return the book but you will pay NO FINE! If  you have the books for extra long your school might eventually yell at you via a letter threatening to hold your grades. (Only happened once to me! And I returned the book and all was well).

I can’t guarantee the Interlibrary Loan still works this way, but give it a shot. You might save thousands. I did! I wasted the cash on beer and food.

Let’s review:

Step 1: Go to your college library and ask if they participate in Interlibrary Loan or some such program.

Step 2: If so, search the Interlibrary Loan data system for your needed textbooks.

Step 3: Ask someone at the library if you’ll be fined if the book is a week late. (Just to double check. Don’t say 4 months late, they might not like that.)

Step 4: If all is good and you get the book. Use it for class and turn it in when your done OR if you’re sent a letter by YOUR school library to return the book or you’ll get in big trouble.

Step 5: Spread the word and enjoy this system for the rest of your college career!

Best of luck and if you get yelled at don’t tell anyone I told you to do it. No one wants to get sued.

Have you had the wonderful pleasure of watching the film “Troll”? If not you should check it out.

Here’s a link for it on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/105627/troll

Anyway… The plot is as follows:  A boy’s apartment building is invaded by an ancient troll and he becomes a wizard to fight off the troll and it’s evil minions from taking over the world. Guess what the boy’s name is…Harry Potter!! What a coincidence. Troll came out in 1986, and Harry Potter was written in 1997. Coincidence? Maybe but I doubt it. But maybe.

Watch the film on Hulu and think about it. Let me know your thoughts.

Roger Rabbit will do anything for a buck.

21 May

I was lucky enough to meet Charles Fleischer at the Motor City Comic Con last weekend. Since Marina Sirtis was too up tight to do me a solid, I asked (aka paid) Mr. Roger Rabbit himself to do the deed. Wanna know what I got?

This:

—>Click me to hear Lena’s new Roger Rabbit voicemail.<—

Sadly I forgot to tell him my common name was Lena not Mary, but whatever. Roger fucking Rabbit is my voice mail. Or will be once I figure out how to hack itunes and make it so.

Just wanted to share some awesomeness with my homies.
