Next month is October–which means Halloween–which means the month of all things spooky! (Let’s be honest, though, spooky is a year-round mood in our household.) With October comes a few things for me, like projects and ideas.
First of all, October has sort of become the month of a drawing-a-day in the online community. For the first time ever, I will be participating in this ritual. I have created my own prompt list (see below), and I will be drawing a combination of original-based art as well as fan art. There may be a few days when I just write a little story instead of drawing. I am not sure yet.
So there will be some artsy uploads soon enough. Honestly most of the art is probably going to be either Grelle, Vexen, or Nox. Maybe some other characters as well. Who knows. Maybe I’ll try a background or still-life.
Other things that art coming up soon: I am going to be revamping my YouTube account again. This time, I’ve realized that I shouldn’t do what’s popular, but rather, what I like. I like to sew! I like goth clothing! I like a bit of menswear fashion!
Part of wanting to make a YouTube channel that is based on, basically, sewing plus-size men’s goth clothing is to help me create a wardrobe that I will personally be happy with while simultaneously creating content for other bigger goth guys like me–and maybe even for those who just like this kind of fashion, or are trans too and need some representation in this field of the internet.
Thinking on reinventing myself, and becoming the Devyn I really want to be, I messed around with a photo-editor last night. Nothing fancy, but I took a selfie.
…I look like an angry baby.
Along with a new wardrobe, I will be coloring my hair for the first time in literally years. I found a very nice, animal-friendly/vegan hair dye company that honestly looks better than Manic Panic. I didn’t think that was possible. They’re called Lunar Tide. Some of the colors are just fantastic! I can’t wait to dye my hair in a week or two. Covey is going to help, and whatever is left over of the two dye pots I buy, she is going to use in her hair.
The colors I am going with this time around are called Cerulean Sea and Juniper Green. I want to take the green and kinda blend it into the bluish color, to make it look like a sort of ombre. I have no idea if that will work, but…I’m willing to try. Of course, to get the best possible color, I will be bleaching my hair as well.
Other colors that I considered are Plum Purple, Lychee Pink, and Blood Moon. If I don’t end up liking the Cerulean and Juniper, I might let it fade out after a few months and redo it in the Blood Moon with a fade into the Lychee, or the Plum into the Lychee.
I might be getting ahead of myself, but after the madness of October/Spooky Month comes NaNoWriMo–which I am going to participate in this year, with a brand new account! (You can add me as a writing buddy if you’d like!)
