NaNoWriMo: The Madness Commences!

I’m going to be busy for awhile. I will do my utmost to keep posting interesting stuff during this month while I edit Blood of MIdnight: The Broken Prophecy (I’m working on chapter 15 at the moment) and once again do NaNoWriMo! I was successful last year. In fact, I actually wrote two of them. Let’s see what comes of it this year.

If you’re not familiar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month. I cannot possibly explain it any better than these guys did:

Geno 2.0

So, this little guy arrived yesterday in the mail.

I’m pretty excited to find out about my ancestors. Last year around this time, I heard of this Genographic Project but didn’t have enough money for the 200.00CAD at that time. This year, I saved the funds as part of the Halloween budget to make sure I could do it as a tribute to my ancestors. Continue reading “Geno 2.0”

Last Day of September

And it’s been a good one so far! I’m now about one and a half chapters into writing the sequel to my current novel Blood of Midnight: The Broken Prophecy, Alex sent me six chapters of edited work for me to dig into, and I picked up some lights for my Halloween decorations.

Not bad at all.

How to do Zaraki Kenpachi’s Hair

I had intended to post this yesterday but my computer shut down and my almost-finished post got eaten. Noooo!

Very well then. Today, I would like to present a cost-effective easy(ish) way to execute Kenpachi’s crazyass hair. He’s the favourite character of many Bleach fans but the ‘do is something that often stymies anyone wanting to cosplay the guy. Through my experimentation, frustration, and multiple tries, I managed to come up with a way to do his hairstyle in a way that is relatively simple and involves only materials that are cheap and easy to find.

I’ll also share with you the process of creation and discovering what works and what doesn’t. The hairpiece I currently have works but I intend to re-make it with some improvements. I’ll tell you what these will be and why I will make the alterations in question. In addition, I will talk about Kenpachi’s eyepatch and how I made that.

Look like something you’d like to try? Well read on then!
