Heyyo! So, like most of Deviantart, I kind of live on tumblr now. I'm also moving to Atlanta in about two weeks! Yeah I'm going to live on my brother's futon until I can get my own place. Exciting!!!

I haven't really been doing anything but working at Starbucks and trying to keep my head on straight. Aaauugh that's why I'm going to Atlanta. Another fresh start. Hurrah! :D

Hey everyone! My adorable cousin has profound autism and he desperatly needs an autism service dog. I've set up a FundMe page to try and raise the money we need. If you could donate or just spread the word that would be great!!!! :blowkiss:

So I broke down and made a new secret art tumblr. (Though I guess it's not so secret if I tell everyone about it ha haaa.)

Check it! hyperfantastic.tumblr.com/

I'm trying to get myself to do more art and it seems like everyone has moved off from DA to tumbr. I'm not leaving my little cobwebby gallery here, no no, I just wanted you guys to know I guess.  

It's mostly full of my ridiculous attempts at cosplay. So yeah.

OH ALSO ALL OF MY PLANS FOR MOVING AND GOING TO GRADSCHOOL FELL THROUGH HAHAHAAAA.

I'm moving to Destin to live with my aunt and watch her little boys so that's cool.

So YEAH holla at me with your tumblr names or whatever.

DRAGONCON IS IN A WEEK!? WHO IS GOING?? I AM! :D

I found out I probably can't go to grad school. That's ok I guess. I'm kind of bummed, but the school didn't fund me, and plan B had ALWAYS been to not go if they didn't fund me. I feel like I've just gone in a huge stressful circle for no reason. Mostly I just feel like sleeping and key smashing.

I passed my online summer classes though! Yaaaay! That wasn't a huge waste of time at all, no siree. Now i just have to take my comprehensive oral exams and I'll have my (totally not useless) Masters! MWUHAHAHAHAAAA. I'll be Dr. Voo before you guys know it.

Speaking of "you guys," I've been having some serious nostalgia trips. I keep running into old Deviantart friends on other websites. I'm like OMG IT'S YOU HEY HEY! But then I realize we literally haven't spoken for about 3 years. Sad face.

ALSO WATCHMEN NOSTALGIA WHYYY. I'm kind of missing the fandom of 2009. GOOD TIMES. SILLY TIMES. I wish I had drawn more fan art back then. I guess there's nothing stopping me now... I have been feeling super artsy recently. Gotta MAKE MORE ART AAUURRGH.

Anyways, how are all of you? Life treating you well? Has everyone moved off to Tumblr? if so , what's your name? I'll totally creep on you if you want. ;D

Hey dudes and dudettes. I don't really hang on DA much anymore. I'm usually lurking on tumblr, which is sad because I don't have a tumblr of my own haw haw.

WELL, life news! I got accepted into the totally rad creative writing MFA program at the University of Central Florida. Yay! I was apparently a first round admit and they're super excited to have me enroll buuuuut...they aren't giving me any funding. This is problematic as I am unemployed and basically a transient. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. I'm kind of bummed about it, to be honest. I don't want to have to take out 20 grand in loans just to write poetry. WHAT DO?

But yeah, my birthday is Wednesday. I shall be old old old. :D

Hey guys! So I've been back on DA for a while kinda. I've been working on some SECRET STUFF OOOOH but mostly I've been lurking hardcore.

*hops up on soapbox*

GOODBYE FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE AND TUMBLR! This is some scary stuff guys! Also if you post ANY copyrighted material, like a gif or a youtube video or a still image, YOU CAN BE CHARGED WITH A FELONY AND SPEND 5 YEARS IN JAIL! YAY!

Yeah, I'm kinda on one. It wasn't a huge decision, it just kinda happened. Also, I'm not OMG LEAVING FOREVER. Just taking a break. I did realize, once I was on hiatus, just how much time I spend on this site. The thing is, I was lurking and faving and commenting, but I wasn't CREATING anything. So I'm taking a break and hopefully I'll have some rad stuff to show you guys when I come back...which should be sometime after the holidays. I'm finishing up the semester here and things are busy busy. As soon as school gets out I am going on a madcap roadtrip with allergist to St. Louis. We're going to see My Chemical Romance! WHOAAA CRAZY. (Their new album is very Shiney Toy Guns meets MSI meets...MCR lol. Good stuff.) And then after the concert I'm going to GULF SHORES TO SEE MY HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS! YEAAAH!

Gonna be fun.

Stay frosty my digital friends. I shan't be gone long. <3

WTF DOLPHIN PRINCESS???

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 27, 2010, 9:26 PM


I'M ALIVE! Really I am, I swear. School has just been eating what's left of my brain. Poetry has been eating the rest. I've spent the last few weeks reading copious amounts of Shakespeare, making Brian-Froud-esqu-ish ceramic faces, and kneeling in dog poop while painting a mural for the animal shelter. I also read Neuromancer. HAHA PAYPHONES IN THE CYBERPUNK FUTURE? HOW SILLY.

I had fall break a little while ago and it was mostly restfull. I was super bored and my brother told me to look up this show called, (Hold on to your weeaboo hats!) DARKSTAR NARUTARU.

The title is stupid, I know, but the manga (2005 much??) is pretty...good? Compelling? I don't really know how to describe it. It's a deconstruction of the whole "kids with cute monsters make their cute monsters fight" deal and it's completely OFF THE CHAIN FUCKED UP. Seriously, it starts off so innocently and then BAM MURDER AND MAYHEM AND TOTALITARIANISM AND GORN AND WHAT THE HELL AM I READING I DON'T EVEN--all disguised as cute drama between middle school girls. Aaaaaand no one has read it. AND THERE'S A MAGICAL DOLPHIN?? WTF??? 8D

Look it up if you have time. The monsters are cute AT FIRST and the people are drawn with these weird...long spider toes. UGH. CREEPY.

Okay, back to homework. (OOH FRANCIS BACON~)

AHAHAH SCHOOL'S IN. Well kinda. I won't really be in SCHOOL MODE until Dragon*con is over. SPEAKING OF WHICH IT'S IN LIKE TWO WEEKS OR SOMETHING WAAAH. Can't wait to see everyone! My car pooped out the last few weeks of the summer so I didn't get to go to Gulf Shores. BOOOO. Sorry if I disappointed anyone, but you guys can come see me in my FABULOUS DORM ROOOOM.


In other news, my employer at the bookstore wants to get her 12 year old granddaughter some books. Now, the girl read and liked Twilight (UGH AWFUL I KNOW) but she also read and loved Neil Gaiman's Coraline and The Graveyard Book, so there's still some hope left! I was wondering what you DeviantART ladies read when you were that age? When I was that age I skipped right over little girl books and started reading hardcore urban fantasy lololol. So I was thinking Ellen Datlow's Greenman anthology and Waifs and Strays by Charles de Lint. THE GIRL ALSO LIKES COMICS AND LOVES ART so I also suggested the Stardust graphic novel.

ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS? HIT ME UP, PEOPLE~

HEY GUYS! the summer is winding down and I HAVE NOT BEEN SLEEPING! also, my laptop does not like capitalizing things. Oh you, silly laptop~

Speaking of, i was wondering what you guys think of putting stickers on laptops? I have a bunch of cool stickers I've been saving (mighty Boosh, devil's panties, and even some DA ones!) but now I don't know if I want them on my laptop. Should I just slap them on my car by my cthulu fish??

Same thing goes for my bag full of nerd flare (flair?) I've accumulated over the years. i don't have a messenger bag to put them on so i usually just stick them on my radical rock magnets on my message board. Hm, do you guys do anything neat with your nerd flair? or is that sooo 2004?

HUFF moving back out into the dorms in a week. I'm pretty excited! I get to hang with Zilpha and zillieanne and GarbageLicker...should be pretty sweet.

OH AND DRAGONCON IS HAPPENING HELL YES!!! Got my ticket and everything! My costumes are kinda on hold until I get to the dorms because my aunt has OCD and won't let me paint in the house and we've been having crazy summer typhoons down here so no outdoor painting fuuuuuuuuu. Oy.

One thing I did do here that was great was convince my aunt to name her kittens Harley and Ivy.

My aunt: "Like the old George strait movie?"
Me: "...SURE! :D"

THIS JOURNAL HAS NO POINT.

JULY

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 11, 2010, 1:08 PM
  • Reading: Neauromancer


I usually don't like this time of the year. Ever since I started school when I was a little kid, the 4th of July always felt like the last hurrah of summer vacation. Everything was downhill from there. I haven't celebrated the 4th for three years now, and this year was no different. It's not that I don't "LOVE AMERICA!!11!" or anything. It's just that July 2nd is the anniversary of the universe imploding and it tends to get me down. This year was MUCH better than last year though. I gorged myself on Neapolitan ice cream and my brother and I had a Heroes marathon. (That show is so good!!!)

So now that it's July we are in super moving gear again, and the house is emptying out. My friends remarked that they had never seen the house so clean! What snarky friends I have. Besides packing and angsting and eating and cleaning I've still been working on my Dragoncon costumes. The Blue Beetle outfit is giving me hell, and I spent three days learning exactly WHY you can't dye nylon. The Candywife outfit is almost done. It's also completely terrifying. I keep forgetting about it then seeing it and uuughgh. I guess that's a sign that it's great? We'll see? I'm just paranoid that some con-goer is going to try and eat my hair, which is made of five bags of red vine licorice and 30 gallons of hot glue.

Does anyone know any tips about eBay? I have some collectible dolls I want to sell. I am giving my younger self a super high five for keeping all the tags and original boxes for my Bob Mackie Barbies. I may have de-tagged and loved my beanie babies to death when I was a kid, but I kept my dolls PRISTINE. I wouldn't play with them, but I would make up complicated drama for them all. There was always intrigue and factions and betrayals. I would just stand and stare at them in the china cabinet and be like, "Yessssssss." I was a weird kid.

Oh, and everyone needs to see Predators. It's a great summer action movie and you get to watch Adrien Brody roll around half naked in the mud. It's pretty much amazing. :D

YAY MY COMPUTER IS FIXED!!!!! It ran into some nasty malware and we had to cart it off to the computer store. In my internetless days, I have become quite crafty. I started my uber-steampunk voodoo gun, started my Candy Wife Mask, and started making a weighted companion cube. I also wrote some really angry poetry that no one needs to read. Oy.

I ALSO HAD MY 21ST BIRTHDAY WUT WUT. It was fun, even if the restaurant I wanted to eat at was closed. Me and the dudes just sat around drinking I don't even know how many Green Lanterns and I didn't even get a hang over. I did get really...grumpy though. I MAY BE A MEAN DRUNK ON NOES. Haw haw.

UMMM nothing else is going on I guess? I saw Splice and it was CrAzY!!! Crazy good though. It was so messed up we were all cackling in the theater. Good times.

ALSO I GAVE UP ON MY ALTERNATE BLUE BEETLE OUTFIT THEN BAM I FIND A DAMN BLUE HOODIE FOR THREE DAMN DOLLARS. So we're back at Plan A, stage one! Of course, WalMart was totally sold out blue tights. >_< I will make this work dammit! I WILL BE GIRL BLUE BEETLE.

Hooocrap. I missed a chance to go to Gulf Shores and see my people this week! GRR. I knew my grandmother was planning on going to GS sometime in May, and I was like "Hey tell me when you're going and we can go together. :D" So she calls me early on Wednesday and says PACK YOUR BAGS WE'RE ROLLING! I was in a coma and fighting an explodey-stomach-summer-cold thing and grumbled something about give me a sec. I though about it and realized that yeah it was only 3 hours to my gran (who I just call Janie)'s house and sick or not a week in GS would be so pimp!!!, so I called her back and said "JANIE! Wait three hours, let me get to your house then we can ride together! YESS A WEEK IN GS SO AWESOME!"

Then, of course, she goes, "Oh I've been on the road for hours! 8D"

Yeah, she thought I would just meet her where she was staying at the beach. Ya know, 9 hours away.

:iconfacepalmplz:

In other lame news, my art professor still has not returned my massive beast of an art final. Every year for the past few years I've done a self portrait as a birthday gift to myself. This year I incorporated the self portrait into my art final, which is now being held hostage by my art professor (and dumb me forgot to take a pic of it before turning it in! D; ). I've been trying to get in touch with him for almost 2 weeks, but I think he's off in the woods chasing turkeys or something. (Seriously, the guy's like a world famous turkey calling champion. It's so awesome.) BUUUT I want my art before my birthday. BAH.

SPEAKING OF, man my birthday is creeping up! I'm...not that excited? I don't know what's up. I'm turning 21! I should be psyched! :/ I think I would rather just hang out with my friends who are spread all over the place!!!!! (Not that I don't like my Delta friends. Ilu gais too~ <3)

This art block is dragging me down too. It's like I've forgotten how to draw men. I've been struggling over a few projects, one of which is a lineup of my superhero crew, but they looks so flat just standing around. I also realized that I have all of no good pictures of the titular character Mirrormask, even though I doodle him all the time! Stupid skinny bastard. He always looks to feminine in his longcoat. How do I fix that without making him look like a refrigerator? xD

I've been developing the team for almost two years and the best picture of them is still this silly chibi thing I did forever ago:
Team Awesome by Voodoofish

Haha, their outfits haven't changed at all! XD Well, Virgo has more tattoos and Fox isn't bald anymore. Oh, and Mask doesn't have a mouth. OR DOES HE? WOOoWEEEWOOOO~ Not to mention that Mask can kinda...change his outfit however he wants. (Shapeshifting ftw!)

Sorry for all this rambling. I'm hella bored. :P

GOGGLE'D!!!

WOO! My goggles arrived and they are SO RAD! Thanks for all the input guys, I got the middle goggles and they look perfect (and they were only 7 dollars HAHA!!). The silly thing is though, they look more like Blue Beetle goggles when I wear them upside down so we'll see how that's going to go. :P

I'm about to ramble about random costume crap so you can stop reading if you want. :ohnoes:

Soooo now I am facing the hard part of this outfit. I've designed a neat little girly take on the Beetle suit that I can piece together from store bought stuff (hopefully!) but of course the main component is a tight light blue hoody and smart me didn't think about this until after all the stores had stopped selling hoodies! WHUT.

My other option is to break down and buy/make some kind of blue hooded catsuit and then paint/dye the scarab patterns into it. I am of two minds about this. Firstly, I like that it would be more like the real outfit and I wouldn't have to get so many extra pieces. Everything would just be accessories! Buuuut I don't know if I'm a bad enough dude to wear a skin tight catsuit. When I think about it, I'm like "HELL YEAH I COULD DO IT, TED KORD IS CANONICALLY CHUNKY ANYWAY" and then I'm like "WTF I'LL LOOK LIKE A TUBE OF COOKIE DOUGH FFFFFFFFF OMG I LOVE COOKIE DOUGH."

I could, like...exercise or something. I guess. XP But as a short Etruscan lady, I'm never ever going to be superhero thin! So I don't know where I was going with this. Just venting my insecurities I guess?? HUUHHUH?

AND I ALSO GOTTA GET STARTED ON MY CANDY WIFE MASK OOOH BOY. I've got the components, just gotta buy a beach ball and get some more tissue paper to paper mache the hell out of that thing. Gotta find/make/buy that red velvet dress too. @_@ The rest is all candy. XD

TL;DR: VOO GETS GOGGLES, BUT FEARS BEING OGLED. NEWS AT 11!

THE GOGGLES DO SOMETHING??

Y'all know I'm the nerd queen and I like me some comics and I like me some Dragon*Con so this year I'm going as Girl!Blue Beetle!

Well, having failed spectaculary to make my own goggles (because I could not get the things to be yellow and still see-through wtf) I need to know which of these goggles is the most blue-bettle-ey.

(You may want to google Ted Kord/Blue Beetle first. Go ahead. I'll wait.)

Okay so it's FINALLY summer and I have a plan! I have decided that, in order to better my artistic skills, I have to pull myself out of my lazy-perfectionist habits and DRAW MORE! The problem is, being a total weirdo, I have a hard time finishing drawings of my own characters because dammit I know what they should look like and OMG THIS ISN'T THEM HURRRR. (Some of you may have the same problem? No? Well then.)

So what I'm saying is, to get out of this habit and practice practice practice at the same time, I'm going to draw lots and lots of fffffffan art.

SO WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE?

BETTA'D

Journal Entry: Wed May 5, 2010, 2:54 PM


Thanks for the advice, folks! I totally bought Koya the biggest flashiest bad-ass betta I could find. Got her a wee little tank and foodstuffs to. I thought it was all very nice and even put them in a cute little gift bag. Omg driving around with Mr. Fish was harrowing. I had to hold him up with one hand while steering with the other. Crazy.

Ahahah, however, I got to speech class and she wasn't in class! OH NOES! I was like, do we still get a good grade on our awards if the person doesn't show up? I was so pisssssed. I had to stand up and give my little presentation and she wasn't even there. ALSO THESE LITTLE AWARDS THAT ARE END OF YEAR PROJECTS? Apparently they were a big fucking deal! Like, the crazy lady teacher was all "Do you have your outline and your sources and your workcited paaaaage?!?!" and everyone was like, "NO YOU CRAZY WOMAN." Sooo I think we all did really bad. Koya DID show up about 30 minutes later so I gave her my spiel after class. I...think she got it. She seemed to like the fish anyway. I think she was just ready to get the hell out of Dodge like everyone else was.

OH HO HO HO AND THE TEST. Ooomg. The teacher had us thinking we wouldn't be having a real test ya know? She was all vague and laughey whenever we asked her what was on it, so we were like how hard can it be?? OH HAHA IT WAS COMPREHENSIVE. YES PLZ LIST THE ENTIRE SPEECH RUBRIC FROM THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS. Whaaaaat? I think everyone did super bad. Oy. We were all looking at each other over our tests and cracking up because it was all so dumb and hilarious and what else could we do but laugh at the fact we were all bombing?

Ooooh my poor GPA! Killed by an unimportant speech class! ;A; If I did REAL bad I'm going to retake the class with an easier teacher for a cover grade. I mean really.

AND I DIDN'T EVEN GET AN AWARD FROM ANYBODY AT ALL.

Ah well, at least I made Koya's day a little better, unless she flushed Mr. Fish after she got home. Dx
