Well a Friday has come and gone and somehow I completely spaced out on posting this week’s flashback. How appropriate what with the theme being space and all. Yes. That’s totally why I did it.

Here’s Deema in her alien queen costume. That helmet was something else. For the design to work I had to give her huge shoulder armor. I think the glass effect worked really well here. It’s possibly my favorite piece of the set.

Here’s a comparison to the original. I have Deema much more human proportions the first time around. Her head isn’t nearly as large as it is today. It was much more difficult redesigning this costume than I had figured.

That’s all for this week. More space age adventures next week.

Monday. Blog. Now.

I mentioned this on my personal Facebook page already but on Thursday I got one of the most unique presents ever. A blanket. But not just ANY blanket. THE blanket. My aunt quilted me a blanket using squares of fabric that had my mash-ups printed on them along with orange and purple (my favorite colours) squares of fabric in a very impressive pattern. It took I don’t countless hours spread out over three years to make. It really is spectacular even for someone as jaded as me.

Kayla is heading out to CEGEP this week. My little niece is leaving the nest. A brand new chapter of her life is about to begin. We’re all very proud of her. I’ll be seeing her off on Wednesday.

I feel like there was something else I wanted to talk about but I can’t remember what it…oh that’s right! Duck Tales! The series premiere was on Saturday and it was really good. I enjoyed it again and again as DisneyXD aired a 24 hour marathon and I had it on in the background for much of Saturday. I look forward to more episodes in the fall. The new character designs have been quite divisive online, but I really like the new look and feel. I would have liked the kids to sound more like kids but otherwise the cast is excellent. I now actually give a hoot (or should I say quack?) about David Tennant!

That’s all the news that’s fit to print this week. Have a good seven and we’ll do this all again next Monday. Carja V.

Friday already?! or At last Friday!! Both apply, but more so the latter. Here’s a mash-up to celebrate.

It’s Todrick in his pilot suit this week. Of course I had to cheat and make the helmet much smaller than his head so that he could reasonably carry it.

Here’s a comparison to the original piece. The biggest improvement to Todrick’s design is clearly the ears. I’ve also worked to bring the tail closer to his body so that it looks more like it could actually be attached to his back.

That’s all for this week. More space age fun next Friday!
