I do $10 commissions! I can do pencil and digital sketches of….anything!
I’m raising some money for….I guess starting my life. I’m 18 and in college and DYING to get an in-progress book on its way to getting published. So anything you guys can do to help would be amazing. And hey, if you want me to write something, I can make that work too! Poems, haikus, short stories… Just talk to me! I will say they could end up a littttle more expensive than a drawing depending on what it is.

TransCostumers Work Log: http://z4.invisionfree.com/transcostumers/index.php?showtopic=1409
This costume head was brought about because I really was dying to build something for myself. Since I don’t have the space for a full costume, just building the head is the next best thing. Mainly made because I wanted something to enter into BotCon’s art contest, Skyquake here will also accompany me during at least part of the vacation as a “Robots in Suits in January” costume. Sure, it’s not January any longer, but ask-dr-knockout’s Mun, who is a good Cosplay friend of mine, is doing it with Knock Out and her husband as Breakdown, so …. Why not I join in a bit of the fun, at least for part of the weekend?
He was a really fun, quick build! Challenges here and there, but overall I am very pleased with the results!
In one month from now, it will be my 23rd birthday, which is my excuse for having this giveaway. In reality, I just wanted to have a giveaway.
This contest thing works exactly like every other contest thing you’ve seen on tumblr. You don’t have to be following me to enter. Likes don’t count. No multiple reblogs. No sneaky reblogs onto side/rp blogs. What would your dear old grandmother think?
And best of all, you can participate no matter where in the world you’re located. I’ll cover the shipping.
Winners will be chosen by one of those random number generator things. And if you win, you’ve got 24 hours to respond to my asks (and be sure to have an open askbox!) before I draw again.
The deadline is midnight EST on my birthday, June 19, 2013.
But nobody cares about all that! Let’s get to the prizes!
First Prize: Generations FoC Sideswipe
Part of the wave released earlier this spring. He’s been played with a little by a grown woman and transformed once or twice, but is in pristine condition. No packaging, but he comes complete with his big-ass gun and transformation instructions.
Second Prize: KO Henkei Dirge
This isn’t the real Henkei Dirge! It’s a nigh-flawless knockoff from (where else?) CHMS. I got it for a few dollars via eBay, where I bought it on the off-chance that it might be real. He’s got a CHMS stamp on the inside of his thigh where the Hasbro/Takara logo would normally be to prove it. He’s still wrapped in his plastic, as you can see, but no actual box, and no instructions (if you require instructions, he works exactly like any other Classics-mold seeker).
Third Prize: Four Wave 1 Kreon Micro-Changers
Four of the Wave One blind-packaged micro-changers: Crankstart, Waspinator, Scorponok, and Spinster. They’re out of their baggies, but they’re complete and still have their instructions.
Fourth Prize: Four Wave 2 Kreons
Much like third prize, four Second Wave kreons: Warpath, Bludgeon, Springer, and Singe (whoever the hell he is, he’s pretty awesome; check out those flames). They’re complete, including their instructions, and as second wavers, they come with cute little display stands.
Fifth Prize: Insignias
Okay now this is a little different. These are three sticky-backed aluminum faction decals. You can put them on your computer or whatever. They’re about the size of your palm, and adhere to surfaces pretty well. They’re from some vaguely shady Chinese website, I don’t even know. Still in their wrappers! As you can see, there’s two red SG Decepticon decals, and one regular silver Autobot. Also, see that keychain down there? It was originally my cell phone charm, but the chain broke, so now it’s your keychain. I’m pretty sure it’s not a knock off, because it came in official DoTM packaging, but it was from the same shady Chinese place. Consider it one of life’s beautiful mysteries.
Anyway, that’s it! Thanks for reblogging, and good luck!
A little more tweaking and I’ll be ready for final fabrics. Very excited to see him in this stage so quickly!
Toys below range from BotCon and San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives to just general toys found every day.
I AM WILLING TO HAGGLE. Most of these prices are just my wishful hoping. Based on eBay sales of most used/open toys, all are marked with either NBO, Loose - Complete, or Loose - Incomplete, and then a mention of what they are missing.
Willing to take pictures of toys, if you want to get a better look at any of them.
Don’t forget about my Comics for Sale!! :)
XD Sorry! And you’re in luck, really — this is just the helmet. If you still wanna do his full body, it’s fine by me!
I feel bad because people had said they wanted to watch me build Skyquake… Yet still without Ustream or any way to live stream anything, here I sit, two days into build time, and I’m done with Skyquake’s helmet design and getting ready to do foam work. Sorry, guys!! I promise you can watch my next process, or if my OS update comes in with enough time, I’ll Live Build some of my fabric/coloring process.
