Er. So while I was working on that picture, Sammi was, um, decorating. Above my bed.

I'm honestly not sure if I like this or not. Conceptually, yes; thematically, yes...

I may be wearing the bug-girl costume again tomorrow. In public this time. Sammi has been making some plans to go to Santa Cruz tomorrow, then hiking in the redwoods.

And it turns out that tomorrow is the gay pride parade in SC. Sooooo...

I was debating body paint and glitter and the army boots we got yesterday (better for hiking than Converse, now QUEERED UP with glimmery green laces and spirals painted on the sides) but the selection of body paint she has is somewhat limited, and not really colors that'd flatter me. I could maybe get somewhere with the black and white, but the yellow and brown are so not me.

Mmm. I just remembered a body-paint scene I did on Puzzlebox a week or so ago. It only involved black and white. I could definitely do something good. It wouldn't animate like it did in fantasy, of course...

"I'm in this fucking business for the monsters. The monsters are the main thing I love about the fantastic." - China Miéville, in an interview with Believer magazine, whose website design is vaguely smarmy in exactly the same way as McSweeny's.

I think I'm in this business for the monsters, too. Last night I was hanging out at a gathering of random local furries for coffee, and I drew something in [livejournal.com profile] normanrafferty's sketchbook - it sure wasn't human, but it sure wasn't "a furry" either. It was a monster. Flip through my sketchbook and you'll see retty things, sensible things, but you'll also see a lot of monsters, and some of those monsters represent me. I could burble for a while about that, how I have a long history of that and my becoming more comfortable with myself hasn't seemed to change this at all; I could probably even theorize that my attraction to rendering myself as a monster-girl is some way of constructing my own way of being female without turning into a horrible pink frilly caricature of a Disney princess, as some MtFs do. But mostly I just like drawing monsters. They're fun. You don't have to follow any particular rules if you don't want to.

Yay monsters.
