gwenfrankenstien: Cartoon version of Mattell's Frankie Stein doll, the teen daughter of Frankenstein's monster (Default)
I should be doing French homework, but the assignment is so ridiculous I refuse to even try to do it. (She wants us to prepare three five minute presentations and then she'll pick one for us to do. With no notes. And because my last name starts with an A, I basically had a week to prepare this in. Fuck no, I'd rather learn one presentation and do it well than be half-ready to do one of three mediocre ones. So that's what I'm doing, and I'm going to learn to say "I couldn't do the full assignment and I feel like it was an unreasonable amount of work to expect from us" in French first.)

So um instead here are some Hallowe'en pictures! )

Finally got around to getting the Steampunk Worlds Fair pictures off the camera and onto the computer. Most of the good pictures are on [livejournal.com profile] lufwood_emilius's camera, though, I'll post or link to them when she gets them up, I guess.
Twenty or so photos )
(For more "Gwen Does Ridiculous Things And There Are Photographs" news, see here, where [livejournal.com profile] colonize has uploaded the pictures from our Epic Playmobil Battle a few weeks ago.)

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] colonize had the BEST ADVENTURE. My mom works at a daycare, so she has a membership at a local toystore, where we've been saving up points for basically the last twenty years. We cashed those points in for $75 in store credit, which for some reason you had to spend all in one go. .....So I now have $75 worth of Playmobil that I hadn't had before! Including Evil Mermaid Queen (who is for some reason making the 4chan logo face) and her Purple Barbarian Soldiers (seriously they were exactly the same colour as the Queen, it was sort of perfect). They were engaged in a bitter feud with King Culturally-Confused his champion, Sir Glowing Chainsaw-Gun-Lance, and their allies, Barbarians who carry enough weapons for their wolves to be armed too.

...I FUCKING LOVE PLAYMOBIL, THE END. (There is a point to buying these, I promise, there are Things that will come of it at some point. Possiblymaybe.)

ALSO! Yesterday NEW BIRDS OF PREY CAME OUT, have I mentioned that they are my FAVOURITE? I just. HOW SO AWESOME? Here, I'll just link to the last time I gushed about BoP. I'm tempted to do a page-by-page review at some point, inspired by [personal profile] nevermore999's Super Mega Batgirl Reviews.

But I can't do that now, or this weekend. Because! This weekend! My mom and [livejournal.com profile] lufwood_emilius and I are going to the STEAMPUNK WORLD FAIR. WE LEAVE TOMORROW MORNING. THIS IS GONNA BE SO AWESOME :D. Expect pictures!

So [livejournal.com profile] yuletart was amazing, I'm glad I convinced myself to sign up. Definitely gonna do it again next year.

[livejournal.com profile] 22by7 drew me Jealousy, which is Cass and Selina being awesome while an adorable kitty attempts to steal the scene. It is GORGEOUS and it is FOR ME and gosh, I love the internet sometimes.

My recipient, [livejournal.com profile] derawr requested Runaways and Secret Six, and crossovers are my favourite, so I couldn't resist:

Molly's New Friend: Runaways/Secret Six, gen )

ALSO, I saw Sherlock Holmes on Monday, oh my god, how did that manage to be nearly everything I could ever want in a Holmes movie? Everybody in it is so awesome, seriously, if you saw the trailer and were like "What is this, this is an action movie, why is Adler walking around in her underwear, what the hell, why is there so much fighting and so little mystery-solving?!" all I can say is that film trailers are about as useful as comic book covers.

I am trying to think of an effective segue into posting art of Irene Adler and Mary Morstan, but I can't, so... Here are some pictures of ladies in waistcoats! )

For my own reference, behind the cut is a collection of Steam-y stuff that I am considering buying and/or wishing I could afford. From Etsy and Clockwork Couture, images are also links.
