This is Why I Don’t Take Naps

Why do I keep taking naps when I wake up feeling worse?

I don’t take naps unless I’m absolutely destroyed, partially because I seem to be incapable of sleeping for less than 4 hours at a time and partially because I wake up feeling like shit. I also have an odd OCD where I can’t do anything if I don’t have a shower when I wake up, even if I have only slept for a couple of hours.

Super Mario Eyes

I’ve blogged about Katie Alves doing Disney Eye Makeup before but this is a different story, this time she’s doing Mario! And thus warrants me highlighting her talents yet again. Apparently there is a whole Mario themed photo shoot in the works…

Holy crap it’s Mario! I’m actually in the works of doing a Mario themed photo shoot with a photographer, so I’m testing out different designs. I don’t think I’ll be using this one though. It took way too long and the details are way too tiny. The model’s eyes are tiny compared to my drag queen shaped eyes!

Ok, so we’ve got the coin counter, those hill things, the piranha plant, the ? box, a Goomba, step things with coins, Bullet Bill, an odd looking Mario in the tanooki suit (with wiggling tail), a mushroom, Koopa Troopa, Yoshi, the flag pole and finally the castle! Ahhh so many tiny little things. I’m quite proud of that Yoshi. Frig, that was grossly tiny.

On a side note, I need your help guys! I’ve dropped down to 6th place in the Makeupbee/Sugarpill contest. It would mean the world to me if you voted for me! [link] A “like” is a vote!

Exo-Boots - Hydraulic Armour for Boots

I found a listing for these boot covers (no you will have to buy your own boots) on Etsy, the same shop sells a shmorgasport of other cyber goth things including these wings which I think I’ve featured here before:

Powered Mechanical Wings - Version 1.5 with LED Light Effects

The boot Armour will set you back about £300 + shipping from Canukistan (Canada). They also sell glowy gauntlets and a really odd looking neck brace…

Optimus Samurai

 

I’ve seen one too many Darth Vader samurai images in my time but I’ve never seen an Optimus Prime one, which is odd because Optimus in my mind embodies the ethos of a Samurai much more than Darth Vader does. Also the Transformers are a Japanese creation, where Star Wars is only loosely based on Hidden Fortress by Akira Kurusawa.
