X-Men X-Perience Live, Global Premiere in NYC

16 May

Let me just start by saying: WOW!

After a night out and sleeping 4 hours to get to the Javits by 6am, I was not prepared to line-up for 10 hours and remain standing for+10… Was it worth it? TOTALLY WORTH IT.Fun times in line with Ray from BecauseCowsMakeDelicious!

First off: I would like to say I was in line behind one of my favorite alt. models/cosplayers, Cin’ Von Quinzel (on FB), and she looks as beautiful as she does on pictures. I was too out of it and shy to say anything. However, now I wish I had asked for a pic; She dressed as Mystique and she looked amazing. I really liked all the cosplayers I saw at the event- Bishop looked great, too.

In line we were given the new flavored Twinkies, pink and blue (which was the one I had), and RedBull– one of my favorite drinks ever… and yes, I know it’s pretty unhealthy, but oh-so-deelish! Thank goodness for that sweet nectar of the gods, it was the one thing that helped me stand and cheer for so long. YEAAAAAAHHH!

The place “red” actually blue carpet was located in the Javits looked GREAT! From the huge X’s hanging from the ceiling to the huge screen projecting 3D images of the characters… the lights, the music, the people. It was all so beautiful. We got some swag (t-shirts and posters) and then it was trivia time with Skeery Jones from Z100- so much stuff signed by Hugh Jackman. Ray won a poster signed by him. Let’s say the questions were a tad off, but we had a great crowd that stuck by their own. I loved the spirit and sense of familiarity in the environment, I felt so happy being there!

I was too busy taking pictures of Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence to remember to ask them to sign my poster, but I did get Booboo Stewart’s and producer Lauren Shuler Donner’s. Wootsies!

Turns out that the first 500 fans to get to the event would get complimentary badges to watch the movie that same day. I was dehydrated and thought I was going to crash and sleep through when I entered, but man, was I wrong. ITWASSOAWESOME! I won’t spoil it for anyone, but I need to say that it was just everything I hoped for and even more so, and I just couldn’t get enough of it. *hearts, winks, and all fangirl stuff* ❤

Ray and I wrote a report on the event for Bleeding Cool. You can read it here.

It was a perfect day with the perfect ending despite the little bumps, which is bound to happen on long days. As I write this I feel as if I’m reliving that day and it feels so great– I mean, nothing better than bitter morning coffee, yummy hotdogs, twinkies, fries, redbull, great company and a cast of the most dreamy and gorgeous people to make a day wonderful.

Late Post: Free Comic Book Day 2014

9 May

Hello, you wonderful people!

This past Saturday I was able to attend FCBD for the 5th year in a row- and quite happy I did, actually. Out of all the FCBD’s I have attended this was the most organized and well-thought-out of them all.

The day of I managed to wake up at 4am, leave by 5am, and got to Midtown Comics at 6am– and there were like 10 people lined up already! They started at 8am, promptly, and I got my baggie and a kids one, too, along with Mouse Guard. I love those. In total there were about 24 comic books. I was quite happy and surprised that they did it outside; it cut down on the time and the hassle of having to go up and down the small set of stairs… Even though I did go upstairs because: who can miss out on going to Midtown Comics when you are right there to begin with? It is one of my favorite places in NYC ❤

Part of the loot ❤

After the short trek, I headed to Forbidden Planet NYC- another favorite place in my beautiful city. There was already a line in which I was like no. 50 or so… They started moving around 9am and I kept seeing people walk out with this huge FPNYC bag. I was a tad worried I was not going to get one of those, and again I was happily surprised at how fast and organized the event was– not to mention mega-happy because I got a bag with like 60 comic books in it.

After getting my bag I  stayed for Fred Van Lente’s signing which started at 10am- he had two comic books coming out for FCBD: PROJECT BLACK SKY and DEFEND COMICS. Then, I stayed for one more hour because at 11am Joe Mulvey was signing the FCBD edition of SCAM at 11am. I was second in line and hoping to be the first to answer a question Mulvey posted on twitter the night before in order to win an original piece of his artwork… imagine my sadness when the person who went first did. *tear* hahaha. Either way, though, I got to meet him and it was all wonderful.

It was a wonderful day, truly, and I cannot wait to see what they will have in store for next year’s FCBD. Congratulations to both, Midtown Comics and Forbidden Planet NYC, for holding a fantastic and smooth event. ❤

Sailor Moon Crystal: New Character Designs

30 Apr

PGSM

Hello Guys! Have you been to the official PGSM Site? They have the model designs for the characters in the new upcoming Sailor Moon anime “SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL”; which is set to air on July 5th at 7pm (Japan). It looks as if they took them all straight out of the manga, stylized them a little bit and voila! They look amazing and so beautiful, I cannot wait until we get more sneak peaks.

SM SM (1) SM (2) SM (3) SM (4)

What do you think? Do they not look great? I know there are some people complaining that they liked the old anime version better, but I am stoked with these- they look so delicate. I wonder how much they will stick to the manga story line or if they will play fast and loose with it. Either way I will be happy. *Insert super-excited fangirly screams*

Have you, guys, also checked out all the amazing merchandise that has been coming out to celebrate PGSM’s 20th Anniversary? There are some amazingly pretty gashapons, figurines, statues, brooches,… that all of us should get our hands on. Get them before ebay sellers jack up the price! Sailor Moon Collectibles has gathered up a list of all products and where to get them along with the price tags, hope you find it useful.

SDCC 2014: I WILL be IN You! Mark your calendars…

10 Apr

Hello beautiful people! I hope everyone is having a magnificent week. I have great news for you, all: I will be heading to San Diego Comic Con this year (July 24th-27th)– it will be my first time there! Of course, I am still crossing my fingers and planning so everything can actually happen, but I am so excited. I am hoping things go well so my dreams become a reality. I will give more details as it gets closer.

In order to pay for the rest of the expenses (trip, food, housing, …) I will be selling my artwork and taking commissions to raise funds for my budget, if anyone is interested feel free to contact me (nerdy.faery@gmail.com). I will be posting all pieces that are up for sale as soon as I am done photographing them, but here you have a sneak peak of a series I am currently working on (They are still WIP):

Thank you so much, in advance- I would truly appreciate all the support I can get.

Pokemon Master

3 Apr

As most of you might already know, Google maps was converted into a Pokemon jungle for April Fools. The challenge was to catch all 150 of them, plus a bonus: Mew.

image

Did anyone here become a Pokemon Master? Or a Pokemon Trainer? I did. Hey, google offered me no jobs- all I have left are the bragging rights… right? I managed to catch all 151 of them. Yeah, even that annoying Mew that kept moving around, apparently.

I thought it was a very fun challenge- not only for the Pokemon aspect of it, but for the Geographical aspect. It was fun to go around the world, remembering all locations and countries I could to catch all the little monsters. And I haven’t watched Pokemon since they first expanded the list after the original 150, so I found it refreshing- and I, also, got to see new Pokemons I didn’t know about before that I totally want now for my figurine collection. I have to say though, I did catch the ones I was set out to: Eevee and all the Eeveelutions, Lapras and Dragonite, Pikachu, and Mew. ❤

Thank you, Google, for the fun Easter Pokemon hunt!

Did you, guys, try it? What did you think? Which Pokemon did you want to catch first?

Life, Work… Shenanigans!

20 Mar

Hello World!

I have been writing, drawing, working, and going over things in my head to make this blog something solid– yet, here I am, with exactly what I started with.

So in the midst of a new rejection letter I decided to celebrate today: what if I just stop worrying so much about how things should and will be, why not just do? Why should I be worrying about things that are absolutely out of my grasp? Right?… I decided to keep doing my best to be someone in life, whatever that means and whoever that will be, and just enjoy the time I have in my hands and make the best use of it. *smiley face* It is harder than it should, since school conditioned me to feel as if there is something approaching the corner that I could never be ready enough for.

But enough about that. Since I don’t know how I can un-broaden everything I love and plan to talk about, why don’t I give you, guys, a glimpse of who I am and what lies inside this TARDIS brain of mine. I want to share with you the things I like and am passionate about, and, hopefully, hear what you like– your likes, suggestions on new things to try (keep it clean, guys! mind out of the gutter :p), new materials to read, DIY projects, whatever… So, here it goes… I dunno if I should make it a list or just a new paragraph.

I love art, as I believe you might have seen– from classics to cartoons; I love seeing artists draw known art/characters in their own style (you can check previous posts for preview). Umm… My passions are reading and writing and falling in love with fictional characters and worlds; my genre of preference is Fiction- Sci-Fi/Fantasy (which is my favorite genre to write as well), manga, comics/graphic novels (Sandman FTW!). I need drawing and coloring in my life, and love doing crafty things from origami to sculpting and sewing. I love cartoons and anime, I think I have seen over 40 animes (not sure if I should be ashamed). I won’t even go into movies and shows, let’s just say it is all within the same genre everyone would call geeky/nerdy. I am obsessed with unicorns, dragons, faeries and all sorts of mythical creatures and cute animals, hearts, stars, wings, rainbows, keys…

As almost every other person I like shopping, and collecting things I like, too. I love geeky handmade jewelry, which you will see me post about (shout-out to small businesses!), and clothing as well– though I am not a fan of clothes shopping. I love rambling about things I read and finding people to talk about them with.

So this is all that my world entails, many worlds, likes, and passions to explore.

The question is, what would you like to see? I have gotten messages to share my art, to share my collections… What do you, guys, like?

Do you like art? Stay tuned, I will be hosting giveaway from my Spooksieboo prints collection soon!! Everyone needs beautiful art in their life… as well as a tad of creepiness ❤
