    • The Things We Do For Cosplay

      3 years ago

      DarkDucky

      My friends and I have been working on RWBY cosplay costumes for months. Sunday morning, I went to go use my friend's belt sander to smooth my EVA foam and in the process... I sanded off half my knuckle. Fairly positive I have EVA foam in my skin... Gonna have to wait for tomorrow to get to the doctor.


      On the plus side, my armor will be coming along quickly after this, I hope. Only have to use Xacto knives now. Sounds nice and safe.


      For those wondering, we'll be going to A-Kon 27 in June. There will be lots of RWBY cosplayers, no doubt, its very popular. We are going as the JNPR group, with a Ruby, Blake, and Weiss. I would have gone as Yang, but I'm more a Jaune type. Keep an eye out. Hopefully I won't end up losing a limb like Yang. XD

    • When Slashing Goes So Right Its Wrong

      3 years ago

      DarkDucky

      After reading the Fan Guide, and watching the last three episode of season 13 about twenty times (actual number) my brain decided to make a big step.

      I finally came to terms with the fact York is not coming back (at least for now, because that thought is determined to stay) and was starting to accept the thought when Carolina and Locus start fighting. Somewhere about the time she smacks him in the face with a sawed-off shot gun from under a floating platform, my brain was like "Oh, hey, look! That'd make a cute story for the grandkids."

      Instead of my mind immediately saying "Well, Ducky, that'd be a stupid story because of ALL OF THE REASONS." To which my creative side gave a list of reasons they are actually a fantastic couple. Retired soldier who was once on the side of evil decides to earn redemption for their actions. That's Locus, right? Well, Carolina at the end of s10 admits she was not on the side of good. Two of a kind!

      Basically, I can't stop creating a hard but sweet persona for Carolina when it comes to Locus. I can totally see those two hooking up in the end. Not that it will ever happen, but damned if I'm not going believe those two get to be happy someday, and if they happen to be together at the time, alls the better.

    • Red vs Blue: It was destiny on Monday (I guess?)

      3 years ago

      DarkDucky

      My girlfriends and I were all too excited to go into Katy to see RvB Season 13 at the Alamo Drafthouse. We bought tickets a week in advanced, we planned our route. We were ready for this.

      Now, during our adventure to the ADH, I was glancing out the window as we went through Downtown Houston and as we are talking about Hargrove and the show, and I shit you not... we drive past a company called "hargrove" (all lower case), and I start laughing my ass off, telling my friends. We laughed, and said it was destiny!

      Skip ahead to after the show on the drive home. There is this grey car in front of us kind of weaving back and forth in his lane. After a minute or so, he starts getting closer and closer into the left lane and I finally call the police. We follow him, giving his car info, and the cop tells us to stay safely behind but that he's nearly home. "If he turns onto [his street name], do not follow, he's heading home and we'll get him next time." He does indeed turn towards home and we keep going forward.

      I kid you not, the next street we turn onto is Theta. My friend driving points it out and I was convinced life was a funny bitch. Hopefully the guy was just really tired going home, and not drunk, but glad we made sure he got home (or at least onto his street) okay.


      Stay safe, RT community. =)

    • RvB Audio Mash-ups

      4 years ago

      DarkDucky

      So, there is a scene is season 12 that I couldn't wait to put to a song. Its only a few seconds long, but I really, really wanted to. And that lead to another, and another, and I've got several little pieces of RvB video added with other movies/song/media that I just couldn't shake from my head. And soon... soon I hope to have enough for a full video...

      I just really needed to say that since the one I just edited evolved Kanye West, and Kanye just LOVES to talk about himself.

    • Rooster Teeth: An Obsession of Love

      4 years ago

      DarkDucky

      Well, despite doing this two journals ago, I might as well update with why I love Rooster Teeth. @RTContests

      To understand why I love Rooster Teeth, let me go back to high school (2007). I watched an AMV called "AMV Hell 3: The Motion Picture." Some people may know it as one of the longest, funniest AMVs to date. There is a scene with Full Metal Alchemist where the two characters quote the "Gay Robot" skit from season one of RvB.

      I quote a lot of media. Like, a LOT. And one day I quoted it, just because it was funny and two friends asked if I watched Red vs Blue. I had NO clue what they were talking about. I decided to go watch a few episodes.... and a week later, I had watched every episode that was released, including the PSAs and other related videos. Within a year, I had watched every Rooster Teeth video, and downloaded the videos back when it was free on the site.

      At the time, I was dealing with depression. I was suicidal, and I'm not talking "cut yourself for the attention" suicidal. I told no one I was thinking about killing myself, and only admitted it once I was in therapy. I never would have actually done it, because I didn't want to do that to my mother and my sister, but the thought was there. So, to find anything that made me laugh as hard as RvB did, it was a relief.

      Over the years, Rooster Teeth has been my go-to source of enjoyment. When I was depressed (again) two years ago, the only thing that gave me a smile was Michael's -Rage Quit- videos, of all things. Before that, it was the Minecraft Let's Plays. With the release of RWBY, the Shorts, Animated Adventures, etc. I found even more to enjoy, not just RedvsBlue. Even Jeff Williams' music has brought joy to my life, and even helped me get through another bought of depression when I decided to buy a guitar just to learn to play RT music. I failed (STUBBY FINGERS BE DAMNED!), but its still soothing to just strum the RvB theme and the few other songs I've learned.

      And they inspire me. I have drawn a few RvB pieces, my main favorite being of C.T.'s face, which is the best face I've drawn to date, and RvB brings out the music video inspiration in me. I have made two videos, and am currently working on mini-scenes with popular music and movie quotes. It gave me something to push through my unemployment last year, and I'm so proud of how the videos came out, especially since I'm an amateur at music videos. My first and second were both RvB, and it makes me feel so happy to see my visions of the music goes so well with RedvsBlue.

      So, why do I love Rooster Teeth? The cast and crew? The writing? The videos?

      Really, everything. Everything I can think of when it comes to Rooster Teeth is what I love about them. They push the limit. They go above and beyond. I love that they created their own anime. I love that they are expanding. I love that they are making their own MOVIE! I'm glad they are still a bunch of silly people doing silly things. I love the creativity, I love the store, I even loved one of the Nature Town episodes. You remember those? Yeah, that Sloth episode is hilarious.

      I love it all. Nothing has touched my life quite like Rooster Teeth. And like Burnie once mentioned in a panel (at RTX?), I'll keep watching if they keep making it.

      Apparently, coffee stunts your growth and makes you stupid.
