Please correct my terrible German. Current major fandoms include Revolutionary Girl Utena, Warhammer 40K, Evangelion, and (mostly G1) Transformers. Hobbies consist of sewing cosplay and period clothing, collecting lingere, reading historical / anthropological nonfiction, and Gothic / Classic Lolita. Blog is NSFW, mostly for nudity/pornography, although there may be occasional gore.
I seem to have attracted some new followers so thought I’d post this up again. I’m going to enter this into the upcoming forgeworld open day painting competition. Lots of little Easter eggs on it. My favourite is the heart rate monitor on his narthecium.

Kaomise Soken is 26 days Kabuki “festival” in Minamiza theatre in Kyoto. The best kabuki actors perform there and the priviledge to watch the first 5 performances belongs to the VIPs and of course the geiko and maiko. For December, maiko wear kanzashi shaped in maneki boards (read more about maneki here!) which they give to their favourite kabuki actors to sign them.
Notable Works: Cinderella (1950), Alice in Wonderland (1951), Peter Pan (1953), It’s a Small World (1956)
Mary Blair was the concept artist and color supervisor for many of Walt Disney’s most prominent animated films. She worked in a very stylized and graphic way, often using bright colors. In addition to her animation work, she also illustrated dozens of children’s books and designed many of the attractions for Walt Disney World including the It’s a Small World ride and the Contemporary resort.
