Ever have trouble finding boots in the right color? Tried spray-painting them and ended up with a dry, cracked mess?A fantastic friend recently advised me to paint leather boots (and any other leather goods) with floral paint. This is a spray paint that is light and flexible enough to use on live flowers. Above are the Poison Ivy boots I painted for a friend, which turned out fantastic.
One thing though: Wear them while you paint them, and maybe stretch your foot around in between coats. I didn’t think of this, and while the paint did not crack at all, it started to split where the boots were stretched from walking. Next time I paint some boots, I’ll let you know if I was able to fix this problem.
The paint I used is called Design Master, and you can find it at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics. In the stores near me, Michael’s had a better selection of colors and a slightly better price, but that may not be true everywhere. This color is “Holiday Green.”

Great alternative to spray rubber and plasti-dip or bootcovers, and cheaper than leather paint! Reminder that Michaels and JoAnns both frequently offer 50% off coupons and will match competitor coupons and offers!!

If you have a light colored base and don’t have the ability to color the boot with a spray (like if you need to draw details) use fabric paint. It takes more coats but it’s made for things you move in like t-shirts and other knit material. I used it for a boot before and have worn them. No flakes. Also this expands your color library as well as types of finishes they provide.I’ve also used Rustoleum spray paint on pleather for the silver portion of my snk belt system. Wore it twice and no peeling or running. I did seal my spray with Mod Podge as well.Never use acrylic paint. While it’s fine on canvas I’ve seen it come back chipped from other cosplayers. Do not waste money on Liquitex Acrylic paint, it’s really not made for clothes and at $8 a bottle you might want to reconsider.

Oh gosh ahhhh this episode is full of so many perfect little character moments.
Check out Ami you guys. DO YOU SEE AMI. She sees that attack coming and just dips in and shoves Usagi out of the way. And she can’t do a lot, she doesn’t have the strength, but she does ENOUGH. I LOVE this, love love love. Ami NEVER gets the chance to do this, which just makes it all the more fantastic that she’s doing it now. She might figure “Oh, Venus has got this.” But NO. Protecting Usagi is every bit as much Ami’s job, every bit as important to her, and every bit her first thought.
And seriously, that shove is just fantastic, the way she has to throw her entire body behind it. That’s WITH Senshi strength. Ami, you’re the best.
Then Minako, who is amazing on two levels here.
First, the obvious. She doesn’t hesitate, she just gets right in there and takes the full brunt of this attack, protecting both Usagi and Ami. Again, this isn’t something we get to see too much with Minako. Rei and Makoto are the big doofuses with the hobby for flinging themselves in front of shit. But that’s probably WHY we don’t get to see it as much. they hog all the fun. As much as Minako has that ruthlessness in her if she has to, it’s only when she absolutely has to. Both Ami and Usagi stand a much greater chance of being hurt, and that’s just not going to happen while Minako can stop it.
Then the way she doesn’t even check to see if Usagi’s out of the way. She keeps her eyes on Mimete the entire time, trusting that Ami has done all she can to protect Usagi. Ami may have the least amount of strength and the slowest reaction time, but Minako still trusts her utterly to do what needs to be done.
Ahh, all this from twelve frames of animation. SO GOOD.

I just can’t get enough of these badass, flawless ladies.

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

Had such a blast a Dragon Con. Saturday was the day for Ame Comi Flash Jessie Quick.  The DC shoot was a blast, loved hanging out with my fellow speedsters and tapping into the Speed Force :)

Ame-Comi Jessie Quick yes <333
Also the Ame-Comi Peej is adorable. Both adorable.

Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?

This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.

image

"You attempt to pickpocket the man, but accidentally pull down his pants instead."

"You reach out to push the orc off the bridge, but instead lightly caress his back. He is uncomfortable."

"You try to stab the guard, but you stab your crotch instead. Roll fortitude."

"You say your name is Bob and not Jim. Your lie is misinterpreted and they now believe you are a serial killer."

"You swing your axe, but it slips from your fingers and sails across the room."

"In an attempt to dodge the incoming arrows, you jump into the swarm.”

"You bull rush the enemy but miss and jump off of the cliff."

"You try to land on your feet but you land on your sword instead."

"While providing first aid, your hand slips and you stab him in the heart. He dies instantly."

Hey Tumbles! Here’s some photos of my newest creation! I was invited to a ball and wanted to make a Tron themed ballgown based on Quorra. I can’t wait to get proper photos in it. The top one I took really quick to have something.

Made with spandex, mesh and organza. Designed and built by me.
