So many things have happened since my last blog post! WHAT TO SAY?! WHERE TO BEGIN?! WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING? The short answer is: A LOT. The long answer to follow is disjointed and whimsical. Just. Like. Me.

Can you spot the Rumcake amidst the wing of dragons?

Can you spot the Rumcake amidst the wing of dragons?

Shortly after my last blog post I went on a Dragon Roadtrip to Cape Town with my best friends, it was two weeks of adventure! And the true awakening of the adventures of Rumcake, my little piece of psychosis. I’ve even made him a website,  http://www.rumcake.co.za/, but I haven’t gotten round to loading the instagram feed onto it http://instagram.com/mindlesspixie. I’m sure he’s around here somewhere chomping on some sweets looking all innocent. I love people’s faces when I take out this little plastic dragon and start setting up an elaborate scene to photograph. Let me tell you, making it look like a little dragon has been chewing on something is pretty damn hard, I think I’ve had relative success with it though. http://instagram.com/p/pWnAaeBMsQ/

My life’s plan has been that of someone that would always be single, for some silly and serious reasons. How I saw my life unfold, was growing old alone, surrounded by dinosaurs and perhaps some personified plastic dragons. BUT EVERYTHING CHANGED WHEN THE FIRE NATION ATTACKED. As these things happen I decided to take a chance, and 5 months later I’m happy and not single, albeit sometimes a bit terrified of what might come next. I’m still in the process of figuring out the heading of my life now, but @Nitefenix has definitely shown me the worth of a companion/partner who accepts you unconditionally. He also makes GREAT tea!

I’ve been identifying primarily as lesbian so it’s a bit of a shocker that I’ve taken a chance with a man, but my identity has always been a bit flexible/jiggled/muddled/confused. Fuck I love boobs though…

Focusing on work is quite a challenge when you’ve been swept of your feet! I’ve only started finding my feet the last two months! Produced some interesting sites! Check it out http://www.waterbergobservatory.co.za/ So pretty… Should probably get back to it :p

Been doing some serious cosplay crafting too. The Fenix, is going to be cosplaying Scarecrow from Arkham Asylum, I’d guess we’re about 80% done. Got some detailing clay work and sewing left. Want to push so we can debut it at ICON in July! I’m pretty sure I’m going to have nightmares when we’ve got the whole cosplay together if the mask is anything to go by…

Baby dragons can cosplay too!

When I’ve got the scarecrow outfit done I’m going to start making a Mad Hatter cosplay for myself. Got most of the things planned out, hopefully it won’t be as much work as the scarecrow cosplay. SO EXCITED FROODS!! Probably only have my hatter outfit done by rAge though *sad panda*.

Well that’s pretty much summed up the “a lot”.

BUT WAIT THIS IS IMPORTANT FROODS:
