1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Rock Monster and Ability to be Invisible Person on: November 04, 2013 11:50:13 AM

This is Tobias Funke and his new lady friend DeBrie Bordeaux from the newest season of Arrested Development.  They decided to pursue their acting careers after meeting at the Method(one) "Acting" Clinic. 

Me and my boyfriend are dressed as Debrie and Tobias who are dressed as characters from Fantastic 4.



My "Sue Storm" costumes had very little diy aspects to it.  The "Thing" costume is mostly home made.  I use pool noodle foam and foam supporting a computer monitor to cut it up into little rock bits.  I hot glued them to a old sweat shirt and sweat pants.  I cut some jeans into a pair of short "never nude" shorts.  Then spray painted everything orange and yellow.  My boyfriend shaved his facial hair into a mustache and didn't want to shave his head.  He put on glasses and sandles to complete the look.  The whole thing surprisingly did not take very long.   6 hours over a few weeks.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Nerdology *updated* Full field guide on: August 12, 2011 08:21:06 AM
Here is the whole book for your reading pleasure. 

I made this book for a project in a letterpress class.  The project was a class book that each person made a section.  The theme was jargon, and for my section I went with nerd jargon.  I wanted to make a nature field guide, like to identify birds but with nerds.  I talked to a few of my nerdy friends and made up categories that they could fit into and some jargon. Then I drew little stick figure caricatures of each of them in their natural habitats.  I made the drawings into a plate using photopolymer.  I used various hand-set type, that took forever to set up.  I used 8 different fonts including Gill Sans roman for the Nerd title and definition.  I used Bembo and Joanna in different sizes for the rest of the text.  I don't remember what font I used for the title on the front cover. I'm really happy with how it turned out.


A Field guide to Nerds:  Easily identify and understand what they are talking about
Nerd:Individuals who avidly pursue intellectual activities, technical or scientific endeavors, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interest, rather than engaging in more social or conventional activities.

Also on the first page there is a special thanks to Shon, Chris, Andrew and the Internets (for helping me with information and being cute models)

Here is a full page layout,

VOIP: Voice Over Internet Protocol.  Process of voice communications across networks used for data (internet, email, video)
