"Wanting more" is not a valid motivation for princesses or heroes. Very few real people upend the status quo cuz they felt like it.

There isn’t a “bonafide hustler” shirt cool enough to contain me.

Being fetishized is not cool. Saying “I always had a thing for girls that *look* like you” is not cool. Stop. Ew. Get away from me.

Qaw the Raven


This is not my costume! I am posting this because I had a hand in making it, and I had the honor of getting some photos of the completed thing. This year at RMFC I took a real camera with me for the first time to a con. I’m super glad I did, because Qaw was there!! I made the mask and claws for this on commission. The mask was done on a modified base by Crystumes. I sculpted on her crow base to make a raven’s beak, and added faux fur, hand-set about eleventy billion feathers, and hand-set an equal number of boar bristles for the rictal bristles on the beak. I was so super excited to see it in action. It’s delightful to see something I worked on, hopping around!

Qaw stopped by my dealer’s table and attempted to steal the plush gryphon Shard owned by my table-mate Jess Owen (see second to last photo), then kindly allowed me to follow it around for a few impromptu photos! I didn’t have any hand in making the rest of the costume, including the really neat vest and pants. All photos are mine, except for the last one, when I bumped into Qaw while wearing Kinglet, and my husband was able to get a photo.

The very awesome sloth in these photos is Tica. I traced down her FA gallery by searching her name: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tica

Qaw is NOT mine. Photos posted with their permission! Qaw on FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/qaw/

I’m kinda in love with this right now.

We’re getting a custom pannier for the Magpie-Cycle. Which of Rachel’s hasty mockups sets your heart aflutter?

I’ll cast the deciding vote!

"It’s easy to give little quips of advice that sound great in callout quotes or in 140 characters with a “preach it, sister!” thrown in for good measure. But reality is much more complex."

Violent Relationships with Dr. Leelia Franck

What looks like a simple “ism” or statistic on the surface can be pulled back to reveal a twisting mass of societal failings.

Injustice for any one human is a danger to us all.

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz movie, a playlist for The Black Brick Road of O.Z.! (They’re mostly Xamag’s songs plus a few of my own to replace the ones I couldn’t find on Spotify.)

Ok, phew, I think I’ve chastised the web development community enough for not knowing what Homestuck is.

In 20 years, we’re all going to feel like outsiders for all the Homestuck in-jokes and gifs and nostalgia. And we should be paying attention to it now! It’s a BIG DEAL. It will impact what people will want to make with the web. It should impact the tools and resources we’re preparing for the future.
