All you zombies... (Photos for 2008)

Postby Imp-Chan » February 2nd, 2008, 3:53 am

Yes, yes. We all knew a new forum members pictures thread was inevitable with the new forum. I'll start...

This is very blurry, but it is nonetheless a picture of me:
Image

This is my box fort.
Image
Yes, I really did go in and blur out every address label by hand. I take customer privacy quite seriously.

And this is my undaunted efforts at salesmanship resulting in pitching ES to a wookie. Note that he is much, MUCH bigger than I am, and infinitely cooler, and that all the various potential new fans in the dealer's room followed him when he walked past our table, so I was entirely justified in asking him to stop for the picture:
Image

This is the nice man who brought me a cold coffee-type beverage at Dragon*Con 2007. I believe his name was Jeremy, but don't quote me on that. Also, Travis accused me of having happy grateful anime eyes for like an hour after this man rescued me from my caffeine withdrawal.
Image

This is another very nice man, who also happens to be a big fan. I'll leave it up to him whether or not to identify himself, but I just love the pose:
Image

He brought us these to sign. They are homemade copies of Exploitation Now, complete with every sketch and filler, that he made before the first compilation book came out. They are terrible awesome.
Image

This is my close encounter with one Ralph Givememore, taken at Anime Central 2007:
Image

This is Poe's close encounter with a certain tentacled... person.
Image

These are two diehard Exploitation Now fangirls, who insisted on giving us close tentacle encounters of a different sort altogether at Otakon 2007. They were like, fourteen, by the way.
Image

Technically, one of these guys might also count as a tentacle monster. This was taken before I knew who the Doctor was. I especially like how the blowup Dalek appears to be reading Errant Story Volume One. I think Ian and the Daleks might just get along by now...
Image

Speaking of the Doctor, my little sister got a marvelous Christmas present from one of her friends this year, and I promised her that I'd post a picture of her with it. Here she is:
Image
Yes, that IS a tenth doctor cross stitch. It's really creepy how his eyes follow you around the room. Really, REALLY creepy!

As it is totally my duty to embarrass my baby sister most terribly, here is a picture of her in her halloween costume (she dressed as Arachne so that she wouldn't have to put down her knitting all night). In his role as a, well, Viking, Viking-Sensei felt it was his duty to abduct one of our women.
Image

And lastly, here is another picture of our favorite resident viking:
Image

So, now I've shared photos, and you all know what I look like. Let's have the photo sharing of what you all look like, too!

Awesome pics! :mrgreen:

And here I am.
Image

And here's me with a standard-issue WIC staff rifle I bought at a heafty price through one of my many off-world contacts... Oh, ok, it's not the real thing, it's a replica I built myself; an artifact from the Universe in my head.

Thought I'd ressurrect this thread and post some pics of my ugly mug, because we all know the forums need to be defaced eventually.

Casting about, the only semi-normal pics I have at the moment are:

My University ID photo

Image


And this one in Toronto (You can just make out the CN tower in the contrast):

Image


Now for some not so normal pics.


Me at the Toronto Renaissance Faire, as a 14th century English Soldier, or as I was popularly known, the "NPC Guard":

Image


Wider view:

Image


Unfortunately, I can't find any of me hanging out with my viking friends.(Yes Sensei, REAL VIKINGS!)


And this is me dressed in my accurate 14th century civilian clothing:

Image


As you can see, I have a thing for dressing in historical clothing.

SCA or no?

Also, is that last picture Italy-inspired? The headgear reminds me strongly of an Italian painting, though it was from later than the 14th century, I think.

Not SCA. Living history/ reenactment. I have no beef with the SCA types, I just like accuracy a bit more. At present, I'm attempting to assemble a 10th century Norse kit for a Viking group that I'm joining.


That hat is actually a hood. You can wear it as such, or roll the face opening up and stick it on your head to make a floppy hat. The style of hood with the extremely long tail (liripipe) goes back to the mid-14th century. The concept of rolling it into a hat only seems to have appeared at the very end of the 14th century, and extends well into the 15th. Though the style is not limited to Italy (you can see it everywhere in period artwork), they seemed to have a penchant for being ahead of the times when it came to fashion, so it's probable that such a hat would have shown up there before anyone else got a hold of it.

your photos are all cute. i think the idea of photo sharing is a bit not a good thing because hackers might use it in a bad way. as we all know sharing personal infos over the internet whether it's in social media or forum sites like this, might be abused by those with dirty thought. this is just my opinion. but really, your photos are really cute.
