I kind of love the look Kris Anka gave Emma in his artwork for the upcoming issue of Uncanny X-men (#15), and I’m stuck at home signed off by the doctor, so… terrible ten-minute sketches’re going to happen!
Sorry, Mr Anka. I just loved it!

I’m not usually a big GPOY person, but!! My blue lipstick arrived!! It’s Indigo Bridge, by the wonderful Portland Black Lipstick Co. on Etsy. My order was delayed, and they were so lovely - I got a free gift in my order to make up for the delay :) I will definitely be ordering from that company again.

I love when my wifey gets all ‘defending my honour’ on me!
No but seriously, I’m glad you like my stuff, but please credit me :)

So, I was so excited and nervous that I forgot to mention publicly that yesterday I played in my first ever public bout! It was at the Rookie Riot Sur5al tournament in Windsor, and was literally one of the most fun and amazing things I’ve ever done. Everybody I met was unfailingly kind and fun and lovely, and although I know I could’ve played better I was still happy with my performance overall. My team, the Rookiebillies (from the Cambridge Rollerbillies) came in 8th out of 15 teams, so we were all very pleased with how we’d done. Back to Earth with a bump now, trying to study, but the experience was amazing and I’m now even more determined to really step up my commitment to derby once the MA is done and dusted.
Thanks to Craig Richmond for the photo. A photo of me skating where I don’t look like a clueless dork! Miracle!

Violetsphinx and I went for a last minute Halloween skate on Monday! Super fun! She had beautiful creepy Nightmare-inspired doll makeup, and I gave up trying to do something fancy and just went for copious blood+cute dress.
In roller derby you can be any shape and make yourself a powerful version of that shape - and be celebrated for that.

This is the best way of expressing how empowering this sport is for people of all shapes and sizes I have heard.
Seriously looking forward to this. Can’t wait to watch Romsey play!
Yay! My talented Derby Wife did another awesome bout poster! Go Romsey!

A poster I designed for an upcoming bout that my league’s A Team, the Romsey Town Rollerbillies, will be killing it at!
Our last sheriff was a good organiser. Yellow, clear through, but a good organiser.
I am unreasonably delighted to have discovered somebody else who both knows and loves this film.
