Anonymous asked: I love your costume designs so much! I wanted to ask you if you could draw a picture like "What if Wonder Woman decided to help out as a Robin in Gotham?" A Robin costume for Diana...

A sketch concept of WW for something I’ll hopefully fully render something of the sort the near fuuuuutttuuureee. It’s like… Spartan…. flowery warrior thaang.

Dark Souls 2 shield contest
When I heard about this contest I thought of a shield that I thought was cool as hell, something that I’d actually use in-game. The shield I made is called “The Shattered Shield.” The item description would go: “I needed a shield, and there were nothing but broken swords lying around the place, and a shield frame. I made use of what I had.”
Please help me get into the top 3 American Shields!
A great friend of mine entered in the Dark Souls 2 Shield Contest. It’d be great if ya’ll can help out and vote for his design ^O^.
You have to do it through facebook though, which I think is kinda lame but what can you do!
This is what it looks like:
And you can find his other awesome art here! Yay supporting fellow artist!
Urgh. So it looks like I didn’t get into Otakon’s Artist Alley this year. It’d be nice if they actually SENT me an email saying I didn’t get in though! Would anyone who got in be interested in sharing a table? I’m based right outside of Baltimore, and can provide a place to crash for free! Let me know?
Hey if anyone is going to be at Otakon Artist Alley this year, be a pal and share a table with my awesome roomie.

Hey guys I’ve been in a bit of a rut when it’s coming to closetcosplay inspi sketch stuff! I’m sorry OTL.
I’ve been trying to plan out a new portfolio for college and other than that lately I’ve been just wanting to draw cute shit.
I hope everyone is well ^O^. Here’s a silly gif of cutesy ladeh loki winkin’.
I was surfing my old tumbr name, megarinri, because I’m vain like that. Heh no, I can’t joke about that without laughing. Seriously though I was searching my old tumblr name because I recently switched and I wanted to see how searching my old name turns out. Perhaps switching usernames was a bad idea because it gives dead links now. I apologize but I just wanted to get rid of that old internet name I had since I was a wee teen on the interwebs.
Anyway I found this during my search! These lovely gals are from White Hot Room. They put together the outfits I drew out for Wiccan, Robin, and Green Arrow /crycrysobeautiful.
It’s an awesome site that fuses fashion and geek together. You guys should check it out, they have a ton of things likes trendeh clothes and DIYs. Yay!
They have a tumblr too.

X-Men Now Storm version work in progress! I sketched it out a little while I visited my family and watched the Grammys with them.
I’m very excited to read the new relaunch of the X-Men.
I know the outfit looks very similar but I tried OTL. Adding a little embellishments hurr and thurr and turning that long coat (i think that’s what i’m seeing in the cover) into a short blazer.
Hopefully I shall finish it soon.
Someone asked me to draw Princess Bubblegum and Marceline as magical girls and I thought that was such a cute idea. So here’s a sketch of magical gal PB, she’s a sweet candy mage with a lolistaff. Still werkin on Marceline you can prolly see her outline base haha.
I do love that hawt hawt pink color but I might change the palette around.
Captain Marvel inspi sketch. I wanted to do an 80s-ish boyish look.
- Jean jacket, jersey jacket, make sure it’s a little bigger so you can fit a hoodie under there.
- A more fitted hoodie, preferably above the belt. Edit dat thang! If you don’t want the hoodie, a shirt would look great too (and it’d be a bit easier to make).
- Jeans! I like the whole roll them up for the flood look hah.
- Red belt.
- Sneakers, booties. I decided to draw creepers because I just think they’re so cool haha.

Anonymous asked: Hi there! Can you post how you draw the base of your drawings?
I do some color of basic shapes first then lower the opacity, then over that I do a mess o’ darker sketching and again lower the opacity. After all dat I draw my final mess o’ lineart.
Anonymous asked: do you live in toronto?
No but I’ve always wanted to go there because you know Scott Pilgrim. Haha but for realzies, Canada in general seems like a pretty awesome place to be. Hopefully I can make my first ever trip there over the summr.
Anonymous asked: What inspired you to start drawing character-themed fashion sketches? :O
Back in my first year of college, my two best friends and I were super into american comics. I’d usually forget what their exact costume was so I’d make up some closet clothing stuff of superheroes on the sides of my notebook.
Aaannnd I really like fashion, girly thangs, and themed everyday wear. Like people who closet cosplay and dress in clothes after characters in a subtle and fun way, I think they’re really cool.
Dress to impress bb.

Captain Marvel inspi sketch WIP.
I saw a girl wearing a jean jacket the other day and I thought: man she looks so cool. So I wanted to draw a simple boyish look with a jean jacket.
Oh and I changed my URL name… and my icon.
And here’s a drawing I did of my cat Mordecai and my family’s cat Lucca.
Kid Loki inspi sketch because the new Young Avengers just came out this week.
I have to say in my opinion the writing is a little shaky for the first issue but I just love the Young Avengers characters and Kid Loki is in it so Ima stick to it. But so far that Marvel reboot I feel is pretty strong because mmhmm Avengers Arena. Me gusta.
You know what I also me gusta? The peplum shape, I know I’m kinda late on the trend but I think it is a very universal and flattering form for plenty different shaped bodies.
Side notes (aka ranting) , I’m changing my URL pretty soon. I’ve been using that username for a long long time. I want change to something similar to my name and something I could stick to in the future.
I finally securely moved into my house and I finally got a roommate! She’s super nice and her artwork is great, you should check it out. Good bye ronery days. Haha I wasn’t really lonely, I had my cat with me.
A lot of unexpectedly stroke of terribly bad luck (no one really expects it hah) has been hitting me lately. You know it’s always troubling but I’m thankful I have really great friends and people who help me out and support me through it. Going on tumblr and seeing people still like this blog even though I’ve been hardly active has been great for me to see. So like always thanks guys for all your support, likes, and messages.
reversepedophile asked: Where do you get inspiration to draw different styles of clothes? Do you have any book, website, etc. recommendations? Thanks!
I really like super cute clothes, hipster lookin clothes, the punkish look, and urban wear. When I’m having a hard time coming up with particular pieces of clothing, I go through my favorite window shoppin online stores for ideas like Karmaloop, ModCloth, and ASOS because they tend to carry lots and lots of different styles and designers. Because of tumblr and all them lovely fashion blogs out there, I get to easily see post that show lots of high fashion runway shots. I particularly get inspired by street wear clothing in Japan because I really like some of the pieces they put together to make a ballsy and awesome outfit.
