My poor camera is out of commission with a shattered screen... and I require a new one to continue to photograph my work and record YouTube videos. But this time, I want an SLR to play with.

I'll be working towards a Nikon 3200 and 2 kit lenses: 18-55mm & 55-200mm with VR, to start me out.

If you donate, I'll give you a free CHC sticker, one of my animated business cards to play with, and a doodle if you send me your address... and you could potentially get cooler stuff with higher donation amounts :3 Or you can help buy some things off my webstore like foam or discounted masks: [link]

Hello internetland!

I am happy to announce that today is the day I announce my new 2014 costume project :dummy:

Over the next few hours, I will be releasing hints to give you guys a chance to play the guessing game. Check back every two hours or so for another hint to be added (or follow me on Twitter) and the answer will be given at 6:00pm MST when I launch my newest YouTube video!


If you couldn't already tell what is is, now you get to find out for sure! Check out the video:

I hope you're as excited as I am! This costume project will debut this summer at A-kon, an anime convention in Dallas, Texas.

I have another question, and this has been bugging me for a while now; How do you make the animated icons, like the wavies? Because I don't have a PayPal or other method of payment hooked up to my account, so I can't commission anybody to do one for me. What method would I use in order to create one? Cause I wanna do a wavy of Marxson  really badly.

Reply whenever you get the chance to and stay awesome.
