joekawano said: Hi, Crowchick! Are you running those classes you posted about yourself?

I sure am :) Most likely going to run them as a gated Google community with live Hangouts on Air, private videos, and public art feedback. Still figuring out how to handle payment processing…

Got tired of people complaining they cannot draw. Did something about it.

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

(Bolding mine)

PROOF OF PATRIARCHAL RETCON!

"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!
