Yes, I know the ill-advisedness of coming up with this idea during a time when I'm not likely to unearth most of my art supplies for a week or so, but...

I just came across this blog, which is a group of artists who choose a theme, subject, or concept each week and post a picture they've created according to the theme, i.e. this week is "blue and yellow color scheme." Anyone interested in doing something similar on LJ? I think there'd properly be a few basic rules/guidelines, perhaps, to make it a smooth-sailing place:

1. Any level of skill welcome, from stick-figures on up.
2. Any sort of visual art welcome - oekaki, traditional art, photography, fanart, original work.
3. To keep the shy from being intimidated, crit welcome only if the artist asks for it.
4. Creative interpretations of the theme welcome

(ETA: And maybe a couple more: 5. Unfinished work is OK.
6. Work posted elsewhere, or links to same OK.)

I suspect that the life-cycle of this would be about a month, then interest would drop off and pictures would stop being posted, but hey: worth a try. :)

...if I made Cosplay Bingo sets and sold them for $5 each, would you get one?

A set would include 10 bingo cards, each different, and 100 cardstock chips (laminated). The chips would be in their own plastic bag that fit in a larger bag with the cards. The number of chips is assuming that 4 players would be playing a blackout game where you fill in every spot on the card. If you think you'd need more chips, I could throw in more at $1/100. If you didn't catch me at a con, you'd have to pay shipping which would probably run $2.50ish for the US and Canada, 3.50 elsewhere.

I have a boring poll today that you can't see the answers on. :) I have to see if I'd get enough pre-orders to pay for the first batch, which is the point where I'd feel OK making them. If not, well, I'll just make myself one set and we can play it at A-Kon.

I just had an awesome idea, sparked by a post on [ profile] renegadekitsune's LJ: Cosplayer Bingo. Cards with short text descriptions of things to look for, both characters and general descriptions. You sit at your artist alley table or wherever with your friends, each one gets a card, and you mark them as you see them. The first player to complete a five-marker line wins. Or, if you're hardcore, the person who fills in the entire card first wins.

So: give me ideas!


--Male crossplaying as a female
--Female crossplaying as a male
--Cosplayer of ambiguous gender
--Female version of male character
--Prop over six feet in length
--Cosplayer unable to see out of costume
--Costume wider than the cosplayer's height
--A group of three or more cosplaying the same character
--Wings on a character that does not wear them in canon
--A non-cosplayer carrying a keyblade
--A witty twist on a common character (i.e. Sephiroth wandering around with a tiny Aeris doll stuck on his sword.)


ETA: -- A Star Trek character at an anime convention.

Since I'd COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN about this, I'm going to go ahead and say YES I'M DOING THIS CIRCLE and re-ask people is they want to be in on it.

It's a decant circle for the first ten Salon scents, $39.00 gets you an imp of each one plus a share in whatever freebies get sent. Details and math here and the link to the Salon scents on the BPAL page is here.

The people who'd signed up before (and who, I understand, may no longer be interested) are:

1. Meeeeeeeeeeeee!
2. [ profile] yhlee (who I know is interested 'cause she paid me already)
3. [ profile] ceru_see
4. [ profile] rushthatspeaks

If the full circle doesn't fill, I'll be flogging the rest of the imps here and on the BPAL communities individually. :D
