checkerboardprincess: A headshot of a humanized cheesecake female pouting. (bitch)
You will have seen me bitch about someone sitting next to me... who is a tracer. Her name is Vanessa Lamarche ( This chick went to AI along with my friend Michelle and her fiancee Matt - graduated different years and on different tracks... this girl apparently was in the animation division? And... she claims weakness with human anatomy, so she traces to get a clean look and higher output.

I wonder if she traced during school too.

But yeah, I told the head of the Dealer Hall. She was pissed. We caught her again, and Matt even confronted her, which is... how we found out so much about her. But... no. Just know. I know I'm weak in anatomy (I'm weak in alot of areas dammit) but no. Just no. Even if the temptation is there... NOOOOOOO~

ESPECIALLY at a con where you are taking money for this crap! Ugh!

And I also love how she has her girlfriend behind the HALF TABLE with her... doing the color-work. Welp, not tomorrow cuz Barrie (Dept. Head) don't like it.

I think I'mma end up with enemies at this con... especially cuz one of her BFFs is her tablemate. Oh LOL. :/ Oh well.

I'm in foot pain, tired but pleased. I got an anime (Glass Mask), four Copic sketch markers (I miss Carpe Diem *sob* The other places are shit!), the Lackadaisy book and the first issue of The Meek, both signed, as well as the last two issues of Stormbringers, signed.

I attracted much attention in my Orion starfleet outfit. Enough that Jorick took my bags and just wandered around as my pack mule. Feel a lil' bad about that. But it was ridiculous! I'd wander, get stopped, more photographers would appear and I'd be standing there awhile, so the whole drop stuff, pick stuff up, drop stuff thing got old. Fast. Like... 15 minutes fast. XD

Give it a bit and I think I'll find myself everywhere. Sorta. Three interviews (four?) I wish I remembered the first, the second I arm wrestled a British man (really hot) and lost. It was fun. Especially because we did it on the floor (Channel 4). The last one (YouTube, Kassemg) was a bit creepy, but I played off. I hope. I just wish he didn't say he wanted to eat my face. lol. The last one was after the hall closed while we were having dinner, we had just left and were about to leave when these ladies from BUST Magazine approached me. They had seen me at a panel I went to (Where are the Action Chicks?), and wanted to photog and interview me but I ran off and they also wanted Adrienne Curry who was there and on the panel (and dressed as a really pretty slave Leia). So they got to play with me for about half an hour, taking my pictures and such. She (the photographer) liked how well I could hold a pose (as well as my dimples) while she fussed with her camera.

Practice. Lots. Seriously!

I'll be in their next posting (yay!), so that'll be badass.

My friends who are working the Clash of the Titans booth looked really cute in their outfits. They seemed bored though, only being able to paint people stone. For 10 hours a day! Haha horrible (until you know how much they're getting paid). The BUST ladies were taken over to meet them and they got a picture of one, Wendy (my fave :p).

From a make up perspective, I gotta give everyone I saw who painted themselves props. Its not easy. Especially full/partial body. So I can slightly forgive the lack of smoothness (I mean, airbrush guns aren't cheap), but I still have to wonder how they got their goods on. I mean, it looks like either sponge or fingers, maybe brush. But I used all three to paint myself and I had a much MUCH smoother effect. Is it experience? Patience? Time (I got up at 4am and was to be picked up @ 7:30)? Not sure. But I almost wanna offer a service (maybe a panel with some other makeup artists?) for that. I hate seeing great outfits tarnished by very streaky makeup. I even instructed some ladies who were apparently going to be Orions on what I used, how and the best way to get the clean look I did and how to protect it(they approached me on it, haha). I hope they turn out fabulous.

The panel I spoke of early, Where are the Action Chicks? I liked it. Funny. And eye opening. People have talked about and called for a Wonder Woman movie for awhile. Funny thing is, when you think the big WW, you might imagine Linda Carter. So that means having to find an actress of Linda's similar caliber and appeal (not Megan fucking Fox). Her boots are pretty big, following wise.

Another interesting thing is, that they said something I can take as a fact. If they cannot do a Wonder Woman movie, if they cannot do it to the glaring success of say Iron Man or Dark Knight, kiss movies featuring female superheroes in the lead goodbye. They're already rare as it is, the movie industry )the MEN in cigars) looks down on movies featuring females in a mostly non-romantic roles. Love Interest, Femme Fatal, Sidekick. The standard slots for chicks. Mmmph.

Another factor in making a movie like a WW... the story. Apparently Greek mythos doesn't sell well in the US? I thought Percy Jackson was badass but oh well. Her story needs to be built, created and done in a way that makes her believable, relate-able, interesting, and obviously sellable. A WW movie project is going to be something very intense...

This panel was so eyeopening. I wish I could have recorded it to remember all of my thoughts (though the big one was 'Fuck them all, I'll write the WW screen play').

Fun was had. I got nice swag and now after having a glass of wine and cleaning my skin off of all that green (took a few passes), I think I'mma roll into bed. <3

Today was fabulous and got my mind off something annoying me in the back of my mind.

Sunday there's more to do, see and a Peter to try and meet! :D
