Brickfair VA 2016

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Aug 10 2016 · 155 views

[insert things such as 'it was fun!' and 'i got to meet lots of new and old friends!' and 'the MoCs were amazing!']

But in the end, thank you everyone for helping me get up there considering my financial situation. The Pates (though they couldn't come this year) helped a lot as did Ben/CF, making sure I had the funds for food, lodging, and all that. Thank you Jamison/Brappy Hour for letting me and my brother room with you, and for being a wonderful person who I could trust and feel safe by. Thank you Scott for being so kind and for the awesome tshirt as well as the new hairstyle for my self-minifig! Thank you Team Farm Animals for being totally awesome. While they are notorious for being remarkably comical, they are some of the sweetest gentlemen and I thank them all for letting me hang with them. Shout outs to others like bzpower staff and some of the people who were kind enough to talk to me about my art. It was very humbling for many to watch me draw, ask for advice, or even do art for them!

Brickfair is a very important part of my life now. Though this was just my third year coming, it means so much to me. It makes me sad all these wonderful people live so far away from me! But it also makes the year wait all the more special. Hijinks, adventures, personal growth, helping others...I couldn't ask for a better community.

Very grateful time seemed to slow down enough for that week. just...for me to take a deep breath, look around, remind myself why I'm here, what I want to do, and what I can do for others someday. it was great that my health has been improving, and it was timed well for brickfair.

In general, I'm sad about it being over, but I'm so happy and forever thankful that I was able to go and have fun with all you great people. If I didn't get to spend much time with you, I apologize sincerely! But I'll see everyone next year!

Note to self though: don't take a bus again.

Hi everyone. Long time no chat.

Nothing very new or important to report. Just struggling to get by. Hoping to start seeing a light at the end of the black hole, you know?

I'll be going to brickfair in VA this year again. Who else is coming?

I'm not really sure what else to say, hmm. Anyone want to throw questions at me? Or how is everyone else? Summer going well so far?

Coming Soon! Bionicle comic series!

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Aug 13 2015 · 362 views

I've announced on other websites I frequent, but I forgot to mention here on BZP. I'm currently working on a series of short comics devoted to BIONICLE, particularly during the Makuta takeover arch. Frankly, I was upset in the direction of the story after Mahri Nui, so I'm working on redoing it. Obviously, this is my AU and I don't want to force it on anyone, but mayhaps some people will enjoy it?

Here's quick facts about it:

- To be released January of 2016 (though will keep everyone updated with concept art and so forth until then).
- Will be in a alternative universe with mostly minor altercations to the story--but does its major detour during Karda Nui.
- Human Bionicle portrayal. I could go on a long rant as to why I'm doing this, but in the end, it's because I want to do it this way.
- Will be separated into comic issues--each one around 20 or so pages.
- Each issue will be focusing on a particular group of characters and event.

Here's an test page, random scene from Time Trap:

That's all I have for today. I guess I'll decide if I want to make a topic or keep it here for all the progress work.

Let me know if you guys have any suggestions or such.


and it was a wonderful adventure

2015 Brickfair
I will hold the experiences and joy close to my heart, and not forget all the friendships formed and solidified.

I really don't have much to say. I'm almost speechless. I could spend a long time rambling about the details, but admittedly, I'm fatigued beyond belief and may pass on that. Perhaps later I will. But for now, know that it was the highlight of my year.

Things have been really hard on me for a long time. Finances and life and health. So hard. There were times recently where I wasn't sure I was going to make it. But I have. I found some inner strength, by what seems a miracle, a few weeks before Brickfair. It carried on and helped me survive through the eventful convention.

So much fun and amazing memories. I met old friends and new ones. I am reminded why I am friends with who. Reminded that I still have the ability to make new friendships. That I should try harder to stay in touch and trust people to accept me for who I am. People were so good to me, I'm blown away by everyone's love and kindness when I had a abrasive point over the weekend. You were all so supportive and I confess, had a moment of teary eyes earlier thinking over it. Soft spoken love, genuine hugs, encouraging words.

The convention itself was oddly...odd. Turnout was small it felt compared to the last time I went. But regardless, I had a lot of fun seeing the amazing LEGO and BIONICLE creations.

Sorry if I did not get to spend time or even speak much with some people. This year I tried really hard to hang out with many, which I felt that I somewhat succeeded at, but again, I apologize if I had accidentally ignored anyone. I had a lot going on near the end of the convention and was not completely myself.

I want to thank TLH and Turakii for sponsoring me to make it up there as well as hosting me at your place and being so loving, I consider you family. Thank you Bionicle Raptor/Brappy Hour for being such an amazing friend and gentleman--you really were there for me. ChocolateFrogs for picking me up at the airport and just being a great friend in general--thanks for the book suggestions too! Aanchir--for hanging with me, being fun, and supportive. Kayru, thank you for being there when I needed consoling and love. Thank you AT for letting me hang around and you were such a kind and considerate person. I guess I must not forget about Team Farm Animals for letting me be part of some of the shenanigans too! Thank you. Thank you.

There are a bunch whom I am forgetting to mention, and I hope you can forgive me. I'm just tired and spoke the ones that came to mind immediately. I'm going to try hard this week to send a note to everyone I met with a word of thanks and a offering of friendship. I'd love to stay in contact with you all, if willing.

Again, had such an amazing time. Will definitely be back next year!! Maybe even go to a few other LEGO conventions in the future? Hmm.

Thank you all for taking the time to answer my questions! Super super helpful for developing my story! I love seeing the diversity in the answers, but I was also surprised on some common desires. I'm going to try my best to reply to everyone asap.

Oh, yeah, also...

Bionicle survey thing?

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Nov 14 2014 · 445 views

Okay guys, as I’m working on this Bionicle novel…I got some questions if y’all don’t mind answering! I’d love input!

No need to answer all these questions if you don't want to.
And this is for writing purposes--I'm not trying to pretend I'm all self important and changing the real canon. Just my alternate universe.
  • What were a few things that you didn’t like in the storyline, and wished was changed? (e.g. a event, character death, lack of character death, etc)
  • What’s your favourite ships? Or simply a uncommon group of characters? (e.g. Federation of Fear)
  • Do you have any notable headcanons on a character?
  • Or something else? A culture, object, event, etc?
  • What characters would you like to know more about, or have more screen-time?
  • What would you imagine different in a humanized world?
Thanks so much if you do this! The answers may greatly affect the direction of my planned serials.


BIONICLE series incoming...

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Nov 11 2014 · 685 views

So my descent into further madness has begun.

The last full feature novel I wrote was Glitch in the System, completed in 2009. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had concerning a artistic project, and I want to experience that again.

I do not consider myself much of a writer at all, but I enjoy it, and that’s what counts. So, I’d like to announce I’m working on a new series! (listens to two people clapping in distance)

What’s it about? Well, to put it simply, I was not content with the direction of BIONICLE (gen1), so…
  • Novel to start somewhere mid 2008 serials. Story will begin to change not far into that.
  • Will be divided out into chronological serials like the canon ones, but will be longer. And cooler. And less of a confusion.
  • To be written in a version where [almost] everyone is human. (sorry guys, it’s what I’m most comfortable with)
  • And no Mata Nui being a robot. (I mean, no disrespect, that’s cool, but doesn’t work for my AU)
  • Likely to be released early January of 2015.
I’m seeking proofreaders and someone I can bounce ideas off of. Maybe a few people? Would be cool if this AU wasn’t all my idea. If you’re interested, send me a PM.

I really want to do this. So it’s going to get done.

Stay tuned.
