Xena: Warrior Princess Photoshoot

Soooo, it doesn’t typically take me 6 months to complete a project but this also wasn’t your typical Summer.  I undertook a huge move and a lot of changes to my life in the past 6 months.  So what started with this resulted in this.  The donations came in pretty quick (thanks to those who donated!) but life was still crazy so I updated in August when the blog turned One.

Now, 2 months later it’s finally here!  Sorry for the delay, crazy life = crazy timeline.

jon-shirtI was lucky enough to work with professional photographer, Jonny Ups. He’s a high school friend of mine who I haven’t seen since graduation but, thanks to the wonders of facebook, have kept in touch with.  Since high school he’s become a seriously ah-mazing photog.  I take pictures of people walking away, he takes pictures of rock star’s shoes.  What can I say?  We’re both full of quirky goodness.  Also, he wore this shirt to picture day.  It’s quite possibly the greatest t-shirt ever created. Anyhooters, a HUGE thanks to Jonny Ups for taking the time to photogrograph the Xena pics!  I look forward to working with him in future photo shoots!

So here you go, the costume y’all voted for – Xena!

Costume Contest Winner and Dr. Horrible Live!

Costume Contest (FINALLY)

About 2 months ago (holy crap time flies!) I decided it was high time for another HNG photo shoot.  As a bit of a change up I focused on fantasy-related costumes and threw out these options.  Since then I’ve been insanely busy but I finally got around to tallying the votes and Xena was the overwhelming winner.  Sooo, just like with the Slave Leia costume, I’ll wear it and be photographed in it provided that enough donations come in to buy the $50 costume.

That said, a lot of you wanted Xena but didn’t like the costume I found.  So if you know of a better one, let me know.  I’m open to suggestions.  And sorry, but I don’t have the time or talent to make and sew a leather costume.  I am gifted in many areas, sewing together strips of leather is not one of them.

So donate today! 😀

Get me in a gold bikini NOW!

Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog – Live!

Nathan Turner, Jane Lui and Michael Minto

I’m still amazed that anyone gives a hoot about what I think so imagine my surprise when I was invited to attend the premier of Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog – Live in San Diego this weekend.  It sounded like fun (and I’m a huge theatre nerd) so I’m heading down (and braving Carmaggedon I might add) to check it out.  You should too.  If you go on Sunday the 17th I will be there geeking out.  You can find more information about it here and here.

HNG is relocating!

Live Long and Prosper Los Angeles!

Speaking of sunny San Diego…I’m moving there at the end of July. Los Angeles certainly has its perks but I’m over it so I’m leaving.  The good news is that a relatively quick drive up the freeway will take me right back to Hollyweird so I can still take advantage of those perks without having to inhale smog and deal with hellacious traffic all day every day.  It’s a good thing.  I mention this because I’ll be packing, moving and unpacking over the course of the next few weeks and my posts may be a bit sporadic and all over the place.  I apologize for this ahead of time.  I may even have a couple of guest bloggers come in to pick up the slack a bit.  We’ll see how it goes.
