      Hi everyone, I'm sorry that I've not been around recently. My mum passed away last week, and it's been the most exhausting emotional mess that I have ever been in.

      I suffer from chronic depression, bipolar disorder and post traumatic stress. I have been having CBT therapy and discovered that the root cause of my mental illness is from child abuse and neglect from my mum that carried on throughout my adult life.
      My mum died from refusing medical treatment for her heart and kidney failure. I spoke to her the week before she died, and even then she still managed to get one last rant of degradation of myself and everyone else that she pushed away with her blind arrogance and stubbornness. Once I let her say her piece, I told her that I loved her and she said she loved me. A week later, she was gone.
      This past week has just left me shell-shocked. My head is still spinning with waves of differing emotions, but I'm taking one day at a time to get back to "normal"

      The response and support from my friends and adopted family has been the only thing that is saving me from having a nervous breakdown and I love them all so much for it.

      I was heartbroken from having to cancel the first RT North East meetup, but I didn't want to host an event when my heart wasn't in it.
      I'm proud to be a RvB:UK ambassador, and I will be back to my duties as soon as I can. smiley13.gifsmiley12.gif

    • 20% More gayer!

      6 years ago

      It was the annual Gay Pride day in Newcastle last weekend, so I decided to do a Rainbow Dash cosplay to wear as I noticed that a lot of cosplayers were there last year.
      I haven't done a new cosplay for ages, and I'm low on funds, so I had the challenge of making a costume on a budget. Even though I had all the materials I needed the month before the event, as usual, I didn't start work on the costume until the week before. I do this every time, I find I'm most creative when I have "the fear" When I have a day left before the show, I just go into overdrive. I ended up styling my wig until 1.30 in the morning!
      I think it turned out ok, it was as close to my original concept that I wanted. Here's my concept sketch.

      5c6b9f25-0127-4c77-a1fb-acba4aa8da18.jpg

      Here's the outfit finished. Not a great picture, but you get the idea.

      f80616b8-b974-43b2-9afe-52a152d56101.jpg

      I couldn't find a blue vest top in the right colour, I couldn't find a SWAG necklace, (as a nod to the mental Pony.mov series) I had to make do with the best rainbow socks I could find, and the wig that I wanted screwed me over. I bought it from Ebay as the picture was exactly what I wanted, it arrives and it was a totally different style and didn't have an orange layer. I couldn't be bothered with complaining and returning it, so I bought a cheap orange wig, cut it to bits and sewed it onto the wig I had before. I then had to cut and style it, bloody hell, what a pain in the arse that was! I took me about 4 hours of cutting, backcombing, hairspray, wax and gel to get it to something that looked presentable. I made the wings out of felt with I found a great tutorial video for on the youtubes - tinyurl.com/ok9ynk7
      I also made the ears out of felt, but I think I will make or buy plastic ones as the felt kept on bending.
      I will definitely buy a new wig, this one looks ok from a distance, but up close you can see how cheaply made it is.
      I love the Element of Loyalty necklace, I made it from a piece of a pet food mat and just painted it and sewed a chain onto it. I might remake it out of a sturdier material for next time, as this one was very fragile.
      My main change will be my weight, but this is not just for cosmetic reasons, (although I did think I was pushing it as a 16 stone pony, but yolo right smiley8.gif ) but I need to lose weight for health reasons and I start my weight loss plan next week.
      Out of the whole outfit, I liked the wings and the baseball boots the best. I'm going to wear the boots all the time now. I bought some cheap white boots, painted them sky blue, then put the cutie marks using image maker paste. I then replaced the laces with rainbow ribbon.

      As I said before, this was a great trial run, and I cant wait to modify it and perhaps add more accessories, like the cape Dash wears at the royal wedding.

    • Ugh...

      So another day, another fandom war. "Connect the Hots" has pissed off a lot of people, and while everyone is entitled to their opinion, people are arguing like they have expert knowledge at the situation!
      Ugh, and Tumblr is the main source of the bullshit. All the people that are saying that what Gav and Geoff did is creepy, sexist, promotes rape etc are the same goddamn people that write stories and draw pictures of the RT & AH staff fucking each other! How is it ok for them to objectify them, change their sexual preferanceand sexualise everything the lads say to each other in normal conversations! FUCKING HYPOCRITES! All the fucked up stuff they send to RT Confessions and the stories that they ask people to write for them are either the same amount of offensiveness as Connect the Hots or worse! Some of the tags on the RT fanfic page include; ABUSE, NON CON, GORE, CHARACTER DEATH. If one of these Tumblr fucks wrote a fic called Connect The Hots, not only would it be about Gav and Geoff cruising round for hot guys, but they would go round and pick up Michael and all the other RT guys and fuck them in the ass!
      I creep on hot guys and girls all the time, but I keep my distance and don't make them fear for their safety, and that is the only thing that Gav and Geoff are doing that is out of order, and is what Michael was trying to explain to Gav on the podcast.
      That is the only issue that should be discussed, it has nothing to do with sexism or promoting rape, it's invading somebody's personal space and making them uncomfortable.
      Remember kids, CREEP RESPONSIBLY!

    • Even more new ink!

      Got another new tattoo today, thought I'd show it off, as well as showing off all my other tattoos.
      Here's all my tattoos in the order that I got them.

      1. Buffy The Vampire Slayer stake through the heart (left bicep). My first tattoo and the worst work I have had done, this tattoo looks like shit. I'm saving up to get a half sleeve to cover this up.

      IMAG0189.jpg

      2. Lord of the Rings Evenstar (right bicep). I always wanted a celtic style image, and I wanted to keep on with my geeky tattoos.

      20130224_154438-1.jpg

      3. The Darkness logo (tramp stamp). I'm a huge fan of the comics and I wanted a dragon tattoo.

      20130225_221630-1.jpg

      4. H.I.M Heartagram (Right inside wrist). I had to show off my goth side.

      20130224_154215.jpg

      5. Mighty Boosh Electro. (Left inside wrist)After a very dark period in my life, my friend lent me series 1 & 2 of The Mighty Boosh, a cult British comedy. If it wasn't for that show, and meeting a bunch of amazing people on the Boosh Forums that I am still friends with today, and one of them I am engaged to after 5 years together.

      20130224_154144.jpg

      6. Stars (top of back). My 30th Birthday present, a star for each friend that chipped in the money for it.

      20130225_221550-1.jpg

      7. Adam Lambert Eye of Horus (inside left forearm). yes, that American Idol dude, not sorry. I adore him and his music and he's inspired me to celebrate my gayness. I also wanted an eye of horus as it's an egyptian protection symbol

      22082010136.jpg

      8. Aquarius symbol(inside right forearm). Welp, I'm an Aquarius.

      22082010137.jpg

      9. Harley Quinn (outer left forearm). I've been obsessed with Harley ever since her first appearance on the Batman animated series. I was twelve and she also started off me collecting action figure and statues.

      IMAG0168-1.jpg

      10. Rainbow Dash (outer right forearm). This tattoo sums me up so much, an immature gay geek.

      804022_10151493159583552_826855609_n-2.j

      11. NEW INK DONE TODAY!
      Modern Age Batwoman (lower right bicep). Comic book badass and gay icon, easy choice to make.

      I personally really like your tattoo of Rainbow Dash. I personally wouldn't have the Mark Nutt's to get it myself, but I have been putting an abundance of rainbow stuff around for the sole reason that I like colorful things, and that's it.

      It's been hard to explain -.- stupid stigmas. Anyways, I think it looks good.

        It sucks when you get negative crap, but I've been on so many forums and I've learnt that it's much easier to just let it go. I used to have endless battles with trolls and it's not worth the hassle. I just responded and carried on.
        I'll upload the picture that I used. It has the mane six and a bonus Derpy.

        Well getting a tattoo is one of those long-lasting life decisions, and I figured it would be a downer to get negative feedback like that out of the gate. Just wanted to show some sympathy ^^ Did you draw up the tattoo yourself or did you find it online?

        Thanks, I don't mind the negative comments, it was bound to happen. Glad that there are nice people on here. It was sweet of you to send me a message. :)

        Hi Chris, thanks so much. I've managed to get my fiancée Claire addicted to RT now, so I'm gonna ask her about available funds and a wish list if that's ok. We might just get T-shirts instead of a grifball. OH THE CHOICES!
