Tom? Fun? Ha!
The Italy adventure. I like to recreate old Vertigo covers from the 90′s when they used to get real creative and use actual photography or other media aside from the usual.
It looks like the cover to any Italo Disco master mix CD pretty much, but that’s what I was going for. I did half of my face in the makeup (even used drag queen tips by gluing down the brow to make it higher. Someone give me my 10′s.) and chose that side not because I’m like Mariah Carey in that fashion, but because I don’t think anyone is gonna be convinced that is supposed to be Tara when she has a nose ring.
I gotta admit, it’s kinda weird seeing my face on the Graphicly sidebar like that. Like, surreal. If you had told me 5 years ago I’d be doing that, I’d go “…Yeah, sounds about right.”
Hope those who celebrate had a lovely Purim (better late than never!), and a happy Easter to those who either worship or enjoy candy.
We here at Perfect Agent are proud to participate in the annual charity drive. It’s for a great cause. Take a look, drop a few ducats, and get a wallpaper as a gift! Tara’s in there somewhere mixin’ it up in the snowball fight.
I only went to New York Comic Con the first day. The PROS & PRESS ONLY day!! (also 4 day pass people but semantics) Silly me thought it would be less of a mob scene, but I learned pretty quickly once we ended up on the ass end of the line for the show floor. Just like in “A Christmas Story”, it practically went from the Javits Center to Terre Haute.
It was a nice break from the humdrum, although I wish they’d opened the show floor earlier. I don’t know why they have to wait til the late afternoon and only have it open for 3 hours, but that’s me. I cannot properly schmooze and schlep within that time period. I don’t like being rushed!
But anyways, I enjoyed myself. My sister and I got to meet the infamous Sucklord from Bravo’s latest season of “Work Of Art”. Totally was not expecting him to be there. And what made it even more surreal was that we’d just watched the episode the night before. Super chill guy, very down to earth. Really dig his style big time.
Homeboy’s even got his own special chair. Solid.
I also ran into a myriad of cosplayers, some fantastic, some not so much. But the one person I was especially curious about was the first guy within eyesight as I walked in the building that afternoon: Mr. Stonewall Bear 2011. By the time we were about to leave, which was around 7, he was STILL OUT THERE by the entrance, just hangin’ out. I had to go talk to the dude. You can’t pass up awesome like that.
Mr. Stonewall Bear 2011, servin’ Zangief realness.
Shills and Thrills!
But I have to call myself out on a little tiny flub from a while back. The panel where I had Tara kicking Kasumi’s door down has a wardrobe malfunction. Not that kind! Don’t get your hopes up. I forgot one little tiny detail: the little leg straps on her right leg. They magically reappear this week!
So if you’re like, really really good at suspension of disbelief, just pretend that the accoutrements on her outfit defy the laws of science and logic altogether.
Also, give the new Sophie Ellis Bextor a listen. (album – Make A Scene) Gives Gaga a run for her money*! (which is also a dress at some point I’m sure)
*- I keed. Born This Way lives up to its hype after a few listens. Paws up.
