I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.



This post was good but then it got better

blackrabbitsculpture:

As promised, here’s the turnaround photoset for my “Welcome to Inlé” sculpture. I’ll post some detail shots in a bit.

This project actually started way back in 2006 or so when I decided I wanted to sculpt my interpretation of the Black Rabbit of Inlé from Richard Adams’ Watership Down. I was still pretty new to sculpting, but ended up making something I was really happy with and that marked a pretty big turning point for me, both in terms of style and subject. Last summer, a couple purchased the original piece (you can find photos of it posted here on my tumblr, quite a few pages back), and paid me to create a more detailed base for the piece, and gave me free rein, creatively speaking, to do so.

The project end up taking me about nine months to complete, and the finished piece is definitely something that was a blast to work on, but also was a big challenge. I’m pleased with how it turned out, and though I miss it now that it’s in its new home, I’m glad to have it off my plate.

It definitely won’t be the last time I explore Inlé, or the Black Rabbit himself, through sculpture, though, you can count on that. :D

Super Sculpey original/firm blend and apoxie Clay over a wire, foil, wire mesh, and wood armature, painted with cel-vinyl, mounted on a poplar board. Roughly. 25”x11”x18”

I’ll write more about the piece when I post the detail shots, which will have to be some time tomorrow, cuz I’m too sleepy to type properly now.

I just noticed that jasperjacquet has a “me” tag on this, which means that a) as usual, my mutual followers are way more talented than I am, and b) it seems like a good time to mention that Watership Down was extremely formative in my life. It figures prominently in one of my earliest memories, when someone my parents’ church mistook the animated version for a children’s film and showed it to the preschool class, resulting in nightmares for weeks (spoiler: A lot of rabbits die.), and an early obsession with rabbits (resulting in two pets). The memories of the film stuck with me throughout childhood, which led me to reading the novel when I was ten years old — at that age, basically an accomplishment on the order of reading War and Peace or Les Miserables. This ended up feeding directly into my decision to be an English major in college (so I guess I have Richard Adams to thank for my chronic underemployment). But far and away the most formative aspect of WSD has been the stories the rabbits tell themselves, the myths (such as the ones about the Black Rabbit of Inlé) that they use to establish a identity and a place for themselves in the world. It may not have single-handedly formed the core of my life-long appreciation for myth, legend, and fantasy (Lewis, Tolkien, and Baum also helped in that regard), but I think Adams perhaps most explicitly laid the groundwork for the way I think about meaning in narratives.

TL:DR this is a stunningly beautiful work about a book that’s very important to me and many thanks to jasperjacquet for sharing it.
