Otachi - Dragon*con 2014

Made and modeled by me (FB)
Photography by Soulfire Studios

"Movement in the breach… Category 4…"

Aquarium night at Dragon*con was unbelievable. Otachi was fun to wear during the day, and the Pacific Rim meetup was amazing, but I swear once it got dark out it hit a whole other level of epic kaiju destruction awesome. I felt like I was freaking becoming Otachi, surrounded by all the nighttime marine biospheres - the lights looked sooo cool in the exhibits!! And of course any chance to shoot with Soulfire (a huge Pacific Rim fan) is going to produce incredible work. I feel like Otachi is emerging from the breach in these photos, and she’s about to destroy Hong Kong (or Atlanta). Do your worst, PPDC…

While I consider myself a pretty experienced sewer, I had absolutely never worked with craft foam outside of simple, teensy props. I’m writing up a big breakdown of exactly how I made the spinal column and tail, but for now I’ll just say it was a huge endeavor! There are 162 individual foam pieces in the spine/tail, and 32 LEDs. Phew! Now where’s a Gipsy Danger I can drag into the stratosphere??

More photos and breakdowns can be found here!

Health is not a moral imperative.

The state of a person’s health does not define their worth or their success.

Being unhealthy is not an invitation for judgment or ridicule.

Framing health as an achievement is not only misguided, it is actively harmful.

Basing your respect for a person on the state of their health is violence.

"When you’re different, sometimes you don’t see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn’t"

I wish I had someone here who would come cuddle me in bed, and just stay with me while I’m feeling so hurt, and take naps with me, play with my hair and give me forehead kisses.

I’m sorry I haven’t been responding to the few messages I’ve gotten the past little while. I don’t know what to say right now, other than I just need some time to grieve losing my relationship with someone I loved as my sister. It hurts unbelievably so, and I just don’t know how to even begin to process everything.

My defence coping skills are basically to withdraw from everyone, and isolate myself so it can’t happen again; that I’m the person to actively push people away. I don’t like it, but it’s all I know how to do. I don’t hate anyone, I’m not angry or upset with any of you, I just don’t know how to function. I spend my day in bed, or playing video games, and barely talking to anyone. I can’t reach out, I can’t talk to anyone save a very select few (and even then, they have to be the ones to initiate conversation), and I just hurt too much to be able to semi-function as a human being.

My bff Kacey just beat the first Mass Effect!!!


panic/anxiety attack

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog
