My roommate mounted my old Halloween mask onto the wall today. Scared the crap out of me when I noticed it up on the wall.

Here’s a “life-hack” for you.Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”Nope.It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.That rich red is only one application too.Plus it smells great, lol.So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.

WELL THEN!

this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*

James Lopez, a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman), is currently trying to raise money for his traditionally animated project Hullabaloo. Hullabaloo is a steampunk short film which Lopez is hoping will help save the cause of 2D animation, and possibly lead to a TV series or film. So, if you’re interested in badass steampunk ladies or traditional animation, may I recommend you give a dollar or two. Hullabaloo's IndieGogo page is over here, visit to donate and learn more! And I’ll conclude with the plot: 

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

Together, Veronica and Jules learn that Jonathan Daring has been kidnapped by a mysterious group of influential persons, who seek to use his latest invention for nefarious purposes. These villains are wealthy and influential and neither Veronica nor Jules can stop them openly. But determined to save her father and holding true to the family creed that technology should be used for the good of all, not the greed of some, Veronica assumes the secret identity of “Hullabaloo”, a goggled crusader who uses wits and science to combat evil and oppose the nefarious conspiracy that has taken her father.

A creative challenge I’ll be doing that you’re all welcome to partake in. Basically: You’ll be drawing/writing about/whatever other creative thing you want to do 28 different monsters based on the prompts below. You can do doodles, full-blown paintings, short drabbles, whole stories, whatever you want. While this is intended to be done through the month of February you’re welcome to do this whenever you wish. 

These monsters can be gross, creepy, cutesy, pretty, whatever you want. Just let your imagination fly and have fun with this.

If this catches on it’d be really cool if you tagged your creations with ‘28 Monsters.’ I’m interested to see other people’s takes on the prompts.

Day 1:  A swamp dwelling monster.

Day 2: A monster that brings about a specific disease.

Day 3: A particularly cute monster inspired by an insect or an arachnid.

Day 4: A humanoid monster with feline features.

Day 5: A monster inspired by deep-sea organisms.

Day 6: A monster that disguises itself as a common household object.

Day 7: Pick a tree and combine it with your favorite animal. Make your monster out of this.

Day 8: An unusual take on the vampire. 

Day 9: An unusual take on the werewolf.

Day 10: A particularly scary monster based on a traditionally adorable animal like rabbits, small dogs, etc.

Day 11:  A candy-based monster.

Day 12: A beautiful monster that uses its beauty to lure in prey.

Day 13: A monster based on a common farm animal, like cows, sheep, or chickens.

Day 14: A monster that only appears in our world on Valentine’s Day.

Day 15: A flamboyantly colored monster with a beautiful voice.

Day 22: A monster with at least 2 heads and no eyes.

Day 23: A monster that appears in crowded areas in broad daylight and travels silently through the crowd. Nobody knows what it wants but police stations are generally flooded with missing person reports after it appears.

Day 24: A slime-based monster with an addictive slime that causes feelings of bliss.

Day 25: A crystalline monster that causes feelings of unease, which it then feeds off.

Day 26: A monster you can summon by chanting its name 3 times in a dark room in front of a mirror. What this monster does when summoned is up to you.

Day 27: A monster with unusually large hands that is generally found prowling the halls of hospitals at night for unknown reasons.
