My Bossu called- I GET THE WHOLE FANIME WEEKEND OFF!! <3 <3 <3
...and now, I have to frantically scramble to finish costumes I didn't think I'd be wearing. XD
LET THE PRE-FANIMADNESS COMMENCE!!
I'll be selling old cosplay shit at Swap Shop. YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO STOP BY AND BUY IT.
So I got a text from
this morning, telling me I've been featured in Sacramento Magazine (pages 28-29). I was like "lol wat? I never gave an interview or anything, it's probably just a small pic as part of an article on SacAnime or something..." She said she found a copy at Starbucks, so I went ahead and drove out to see what all the fuss was about.
...I was totally not expecting to BE the 2 page spread (with a little note off to the side with my name + character [Jack Frost]). When I went to the register to purchase 5 copies to distribute amongst the family, the baristas were like 'why are you buying so many?' and I flipped to the spread and said 'cause this is me, lol.' Ironically enough, one of the ones working at the time was the one who recognized me when I came in as Jack back in December, grabbing coffee before booking it to ickle Jamie's party. XD I ordered a drink, too, and settled down to wait for it. A few minutes later, I hear, "HEY, JACK!" and I'm like "lol wat are they talking to me?" Turns out they WERE, and when I got my drink a moment later, they'd written "Jack" on the cup. XD
Sooooo yeah. Apparently Sacramento believes, guys. (Also, I was super surprised to be featured at all since I'd only been asked for fancy photos by that lone photographer the entirety of the con (barring Starlight Ball), since I was so busy running around, doing swap shop/judging/driving people everywhere)
Yo~! Just wanted to let all the believers out there know that I've started a new tumblr blog: Problems of Jack Frost
There's also a twitter, but I update tumblr more often: Jackie Boy Frost
Stay frosty, baby!
Hey, guys! Well, it's that time of year again, so why not jump on the bandwagon of holiday art trades? I'm opening 6 slots for xmas card art trades:Rules:
If you request a slot, you're expected to send an art card in return.
All art must be in xmas card form, sent through snail mail, postmarked before December 25th.
Because these are physical cards, we'll have to swap addresses via note.
If you don't receive a slot, but would still like to draw something, feel free! Just message me a link/etc. when it's done. Requests:
I'd like to see your guys' renditions of me in my cosplay, or as your favorite characters.
If you don't want to draw me, please draw my characters, Dai
, or Ashe Winters
Please don't request furry or anthro characters (beyond ears + tail). I have nothing against them, I just can't draw animals. X__x;Card Slots:

So I've had a few people ask me where I buy my wonderflex, since they're interested in using it themselves. Since I don't remember exactly who they were (lol bad short term memory...), and a lot of other people probably want to know, too, I figured I'd just post it in a journal instead of trying to remember who asked and telling them individually.
SO here's the site I had my dad get it from (my current supply was my joint xmas + bday present from a few years back) : Dazian.com
Currently Working On...
- Halloween Town Sora bat wings
(need to swap old magnets with bigger ones, see if they work, then paint them)
- Roxas comforter/blanket
(need to put the 'X' on, sew the last layer, + put a zipper in)
- Tsunayoshi Sawada [Hyper Dying Will Mode]
(Need flames, X gloves, + good luck charm)
