Realization about BZP Staff

Posted by Kayru , Nov 22 2014 · 225 views
BZPower, BZP Staff
Meeting you first and getting a face to the BZP name isn't so weird.

But... then going to the Staff page and seeing you in old photos is weird. So very, very weird.

If you know what BAG is... I'm trying to get members back. Please give it a visit.

If you don't... uh, move along I guess?

Sad, sad post count.

Posted by Kayru , Oct 27 2014 · 165 views

I get the feeling a lot of my posts were in places that didn't get included in post count, because I was way more active than that.

Oh well. Looking like a n00b forever.

It happened! (Also, completionism)

Sorting, Legos, kids
AHHH I didn't think my son would be ready for Legos for another year or two, but last night he sat down and joined in organizing System parts with me. (He's just barely 2 1/2)

Posted Image

See, it looks like I'm helping him with colors, shapes, and counting - but in reality I am training a sorting minion MUAHAHAHA--
Actually it works out well because he's nearly as obsessed with organization as I am. (See all that sorted Lego/Bionicle behind us? XD)

Posted Image

Look, he also made his first MOCs... a necklace each for me and him, and an airplane he was very happy with. I'll probably never take it apart, it was his absolute first MOC and I feel like I should preserve something so momentous.

On another note, I am so close and yet so far away from finishing my Bionicle collection. If you're willing to part with sets, please check out the topic here.

Bionicle art is in order.

art, drawing, bionicle 2015
Given the upcoming announcement... what bonkles should I draw?

Not sure if I'm adventurous enough to try the new ones, or if I should just whip up some nostalgic goodness.

I've been working at PNNL (Pacific NW National Laboratory) for two years now as an intern and a post-Bac, which are both temp positions... and now I've been hired permanently. Basically I'll be doing the same thing (web design/development), just with more security.
ALSO - wooooo cheap benefits and a significant raise!
I decided I'm going to celebrate by dyeing my hair.
BUT, I'm going to be dressed as Mad Unikitty at BrickFair VA, which is in just over two months... and the colors I'm looking to get won't go with her at all.
Should I see if I can do a temp dye over my permanent one for that weekend, or get a wig? Thoughts?

MOCs, Assassins, and Emerald City Comicon

Posted by Kayru , Apr 15 2014 · 237 views

So, Emerald City Comicon was AWESOME. I would've posted about it sooner, but I have been stupid busy with personal stuff lately. Also I was hoping to have some detail shots of what I'm about to show you, but meh. Can't wait forever.
SO! I decided to go as a steampunk assassin (a la Assassin's Creed). Given the time crunch, I didn't have time to do everything I was hoping to, but I'm at least happy with what I had.
You'll notice some Bionicle MOCs implemented, which is why I find this relevant to BZP... :b I was in a hurry to finish those parts of the outfit, and decided Bionicle/Technic was the easiest way to have more gears and wires implemented into the costume.

Those hidden blades were VERY hairtrigger, so I only wore them for one of the two days I dressed up. Oh well, that's what I get for making them in a half hour the night before leaving. XD
Everything was loads of fun! I enjoyed pretending to be an assassin, hehehe~
Posted Image
Met some awesome people with VERY cool cosplays, including a fairly well-known cosplayer I follow on dA, so that was awesome.
I also got LOADS OF STUFF. Including my Lego name bricks signed by Carlos D'Anda, and a signed print from Stuart Sayger.
And all this delicious goodness:
Heartless shirt, doge shirt, a LoZ shirt (angry chibi Link saying "call me Zelda ONE more time!"), a dice bag, an Edward Kenway figure, a LoL key ring (gift), a card game (gift), a Wacom stylus, a Lego dog and turtle, a Zora's Sapphire necklace, Portal socks, two Romantically Apocalyptic postcards, two signed Chasing Artwork prints, a dragon wool-felting kit, a Hyrule Historia book, a TARDIS card (gift), a signed book from The Oatmeal, and a Lego Hobbit set I already built.
(I have a picture of all of these, but I figured I've shared enough photos for one day... XD)

D&D results

Posted by Kayru , Feb 26 2014 · 192 views

I found this interesting, given I'm actually currently playing my first D&D game as a half-elf true-neutral rogue.
Note it picked me as human, but I tied between human and half-elf.
Chaotic neutral I can get... sort of. XD I probably just got cleric because I'm religious and there were a lot of questions about that.
  You Are A:
Chaotic Neutral Human Cleric (4th Level)

Ability Scores:
Strength- 11
Dexterity- 14
Constitution- 12
Intelligence- 17
Wisdom- 15
Charisma- 16

Chaotic Neutral- A chaotic neutral character follows his whims. He is an individualist first and last. He values his own liberty but doesn't strive to protect others' freedom. He avoids authority, resents restrictions, and challenges traditions. A chaotic neutral character does not intentionally disrupt organizations as part of a campaign of anarchy. To do so, he would have to be motivated either by good (and a desire to liberate others) or evil (and a desire to make those different from himself suffer). A chaotic neutral character may be unpredictable, but his behavior is not totally random. He is not as likely to jump off a bridge as to cross it. Chaotic neutral is the best alignment you can be because it represents true freedom from both society's restrictions and a do-gooder's zeal. However, chaotic neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it seeks to eliminate all authority, harmony, and order in society.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Clerics- Clerics act as intermediaries between the earthly and the divine (or infernal) worlds. A good cleric helps those in need, while an evil cleric seeks to spread his patron's vision of evil across the world. All clerics can heal wounds and bring people back from the brink of death, and powerful clerics can even raise the dead. Likewise, all clerics have authority over undead creatures, and they can turn away or even destroy these creatures. Clerics are trained in the use of simple weapons, and can use all forms of armor and shields without penalty, since armor does not interfere with the casting of divine spells. In addition to his normal complement of spells, every cleric chooses to focus on two of his deity's domains. These domains grants the cleric special powers, and give him access to spells that he might otherwise never learn. A cleric's Wisdom score should be high, since this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

Buying used Bionicle: a theory

Posted by Kayru , Feb 18 2014 · 195 views

If someone advertises that they are selling "Bionicles", it's probably a really, really good deal.
I just got like.... $80 worth of sets, masks and parts from a kid off Craigslist for $25. Yesssssssss
Also I just went to a local convention (RadCon) and made a tail. Wore it with my steampunk stuff BECAUSE REASONS.
It was fun. There were a surprising number of fursuiters (I live in a pretty medium-size town, not a whole lot of strangeness), some of which were dancing at the rave, which is insane and I give them enormous props.
