My entry for Dante Basco’s Cosplay Ball poster contest. These are all the fandoms that have created cosplay for me personally, with Homestuck at it’s centre. Homestuck introduced me to all the others. Included are Sherlock, Supernatural, Avengers, Night Vale, Homestuck, Doctor who( the scarf) and Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared (the sash of writing).
Here’ me popping up in the new #AudreyMagazine… #HaikusWithHotties… Hilarious, go pick it up!
If anyone is around Downtown LA tonite & wants to see me rock some poems. Come to #Speakeasy @ The Last Bookstore! @ladybasco #DTLA
So I haven’t seen #frozen yet. But the song #IdinaMenzel is singing on the #Oscars is what you want me to sing?!?!? #ThatShitCray
I’ve been really wanting to write more… Just long form, to exercise my writing muscles and I guess just, workout some of these thoughts that swim around my mind. So from time to time on my blog, I’ll be writing these essays on just things. You may not agree with my point of view of some of the things going on in the world, but that’s ok, I won’t be offended, I’m just writing to add to the great…
hey you guys… i know some of you are working on flyers for the upcoming Cosplay Ball. (Shout out to commandersenpai for writing a cool post, felt like i gave haley the keys to my tumblr car to take spin around the block) The ones I’ve seen so far look amazing!
i’m also sprucing up my youtube page and need some channel art! anybody game? the parameters and all that are so confusing and i’d rather put up something cool from one of you than just another pic of myself.
as far as what it should be? i don’t know, something that represents me and the characters i’ve played… have fun and make it look cool. thanks in advance.
i wish i was a better “drawer”… (lol… i mean, illustrator or animator or… visual artist… yeah, visual artist)
lachoot asked: Last night I dreamt that you and I were meant to have a date/get-together/social engagement/what-have-you. You totally bailed on me because I wasn't up to your standards. I'm hurt, Dante. Hurt by this imaginary figment that briefly resembled you. That is all, carry on.
rest assured i would never dream of doing anything like that…
but i do apologize for my dream self that may have hurt your feelings.
Greetings and Salutations! The Cosplay Ball is coming to Los Angeles for it’s debut and the geeks behind it want to reach out to the fandom community! SOOo we have a proposition for all you brilliant fanartists, and here it is!
See this poster up there? Yeah that one that says COSPLAY BALL. Remake it! With all the information on that poster now. Get creative and incorporate your favorite fandoms and characters to create the best poster you possibly can.
"So what do I get out of this?" You ask greedily, hands clasped in a sinister steeple.
"You get publicity and love, also Dante Basco will send you a personalized thank you gift and a t-shirt and his soul…Wait.. no..he just informed me not to give away his soul.. sorry about that."
The Fandom Society team will pick 20 top contestants and then you will vote for the top 5! Then we will use them for propaganda (look who’s evil now). We will print them out and use them to promote the ball. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE CREDITED but we need to be able to use your art for what we decide, we promise we will be good!
So artists, have at it! You’ve got one week, the deadline is friday March 7th!
Tag your submission #cosplayballfanart
-Haley the intern who is not Dante Basco, but currently sitting right next to him, he approves this message.
If you’re in LA & free next Friday night, i want to invite everyone out! We’re celebrating AJ Rafael and Carl Choi’s birthdays with a fundraising party at The Great Company in DTLA. We’re partnering with the Peace Project again to raise money to build at least 8 houses in the Philippines, and we’re asking for a $20 donation to be able to do so (it takes just $500 to build a house for a family).
Please come by. There’ll be live performances from AJ Rafael, Tim Be Told, Toestah, myself and many others. See you at 8pm
Brought to you by #the8th & The Great Company…
