Venom

October 5, 2018

Venom starts this weekend! I scored this tee a bit back and threw a customized look on that bad boy right quick with puff paint webbing. Even though I’m DC at heart, I can’t wait to see this flick, but first… our UFC 229 fight party.

That’s Dr. Poison to You

August 29, 2017

“Remember it all, every insult, every tear. Tattoo it on the inside of your mind. In life, knowledge of poisons is essential.”     
                    ••~ Janet Fitch

I think I have my idea ready for 2018 ABQ ComicCon and if work appropriate, potentially Halloween! I’m rolling with Dr. Poison this year. DC… Villainy Inc. baby!! Since I was feeling this gas masky villainess, I created a gas mask themed gym shred just for fun! Excited about becoming Dr. Poison and playing with creating a broken mask to disguise her scars. I liked her revamp in Wonder Woman. I’ll likely mashup the versions.

Kitsch Basecamp

April 19, 2017

This week our work site became the basecamp for a new TV series that’s filming around here. I always say… “only in the movies.” I guess it fits. There’s something intriguging about how bizzare it really is “behind the scenes” ha? I haven’t seen Kitsch working out at Mandrill’s. Then again, he doesn’t need to buff up for that role ha?

New Theme: The Enchantress 

December 15, 2016

I have a new theme featuring my latest cosplay… this was the darker version of The Enchantress from this year’s Suicide Squad movie. She was the best character hands down. This may be one of my favorite cosplay creations over the last 5 years. I’ll have to take some time to pull together all my costumes in a video montage.

A Darker Side

October 8, 2016

XxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxX
I’ve been working on my latest cosplay. This year I’ll transform into the dark side of June Moone. I loved her in the Suicide Squad movie. I’d say it was time for a darker look. Enchantress will be my 4th rendition of a villainous, female DC character. I think the first and last Marvel cosplay I entertained was Natasha Romanova, better known as Black Widow. I’ll be sticking to my love of DC from here on out.

I’ll get good use out of this costume because I’ll be wearing it 3x. Once to a Halloween party with some gym peeps (which I’m excited for)… to work on Halloween… and then to the 2017 ABQ ComicCon. This costume looks simple, but I’d say it is the most intricate I’ve crafted to date. I’ve made most of the accessories, as well as 95% of the bra and it hasn’t been easy! I believe this is the first time that the majority of what I needed to craft a costume came from a hardware store.

I’m hoping this cosplay will come together perfectly. I’ll be a little more covered up for the first two rounds, but I’ll definitely show more strangely marked and blackened skin at ComicCon. I would wear the more riskaay costume to my 1st soirée, but the work party falls in between!

Squad

August 21, 2016

•♦•| Me… twisted. |•♦•

•♦•| Me… twisted again. |•♦•

I did love the new Suicide Squad movie, but I guess I’m just twisted like that. It was clearly a setup for another movie about Harley Quinn and The Joker. The movie was a very romanticized version of that whatever it is relationship (which I kinda liked). In the comics, The Joker basically treats Harley Quinn like crap.

My favorite movie scene was the vat scene. If you didn’t see the movie, then I’m sure you could give a flying f*#k about the content of that twistedly, romantic, only in the movies scene, but basically… all you need to know is that in “real life” (aka the comics)… The Joker actually pushes her ass into a vat of acid.

Worth a watch for those who care.

•♥♦•| He would never jump in a vat of acid to save her because she can’t swim. That’s 2 risky. He could die. He should let her die right??! |•♦♥•

•♦Xxxx| Now that’s more like it. Fun! |xxxX♦•

An Accidental Meeting with Ant-Man

May 30, 2016

I push it so hard in the gym that I rarely acknowledge regular schmucks, much less someone uber famous staring at me. Call it blind focus or sightless drive or maybe my iron blinders are just soaked in sweat? Some may not understand that kind of focus, but those who are serious gym junkies always will.

Over the years, there have been a few infamous, several famous and many quasi-famous people walk through the doors of my gym. I’d say Mandrill’s is on top of the short list of top gyms to visit in New Mexico. Most of these visitors have been easy to spot out, looking much like their movie version selves. The quasi famous are easy to spot out. They feed on recognition and usually have a parade of people following them and many, many flashes.

On Friday, there were two new, quiet faces lurking around Mandrills Gym. At the time, that’s all they were to me… two new faces. I was off from work and hitting legs hard! I was also being my usual unapproachable self. The two new guys seemed to be circuit training. One, the obvious trainer and the other, the heavily bearded trainee. I know that for at least 45 minutes, these two saw me with a I’m in an ass kicking mood look on my face.

And so goes the story of my accidental meeting with Ant-Man. I was hack squatting and he was benching when our eyes actually met for the first time. The placement of these two pieces of gym equipment made it hard for me not to notice two bulging eyes staring at me from the bench. It was his turn to burn a set and I started thinking… “this guy looks familiar as fuck. Did I go to school with him or what? What’s he looking at?”

image

I realized I recognized him because he was a movie star somewhere after I saw him buried under 225 on his first attempt. Poor guy. I was resting between sets and felt so sorry for him that I actually took my headphones off and told them that they had the heavy bar. His trainer seemed a little unhappy about my input and confused about the bar, but I made the lifter feel better. He told me… “this isn’t a 45 lb bar? I actually did better than I thought then!” I told him… “no and you did. You could have hit that for one.”

Rudd

•• My son Daryn, Paul Rudd and Daryn’s best friend Richard ••

I realized it was Paul Rudd that very moment. Maybe it was his voice, because it surely wasn’t his burly beard. For the first time, I felt famous, maybe even infamous in the presence of someone who was actually famous. Rudd has been in at least 50 movies. He was shredded as shit in some of them too. I felt like he was impressed with my workout. I’m far from the hottest gal he has seen, but he wasn’t staring at my butt. He was staring at my drive.

He is here filming a movie. Ant-Man did have his LA based personal trainer, Brendan Johnston with him, but that day, I showed them how New Mexicans do it. Even though I felt bad about my scowling looks, I broke down and asked if he’d take a photo with my son. How could I not ask? My son would kill me if he knew Ant-Man was there and I didn’t tell him. When I asked, they both seemed like they weren’t really into it even though Rudd said yes. Do you blame them? I seemed like a total bitch. Here is a text from my funny ass nephew if you don’t believe me

image

I walked out of the gym thinking “I blew that one.” My son and his friend were waiting for me outside. I told them about Ant-Man, but had decided I wouldn’t take them in. I told them that he was training in there, but wasn’t really wanting to take a photo with them. They were disappointed, because we like Ant-Man. To my surprise, Rudd’s personal trainer actually ran out of the gym to get me. I was shocked! He asked if we could come inside with him. We were psyched!

I will credit that turn around not to my scowling face, but to the respect I earned that day during my workout and my accidental meeting with Ant-Man!

Remember the Name

May 10, 2016

Spent the night downloading Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown tracks. That’s my movie as of late. It’s a five year old movie, but it still kicks some major ass. It stars and was directed by Michael Jai White… probably my favorite real life bad ass. What happened to Spawn?

White isn’t just a good actor, he actually holds black belts in nine different fight styles and has been training in the martial arts since he was seven years old! If you don’t remember his name, you should. This is an awesome song and and awesome compilation from the movie!!!

Superhero Slam Down

March 26, 2016

image

The superhero slam down was good. I watched it today. You know… the critics are so critical, but I liked it even though there weren’t enough villains. Baffling Questions ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Refused to Answer by Donna Dickens was a funny, thought provoking article I read after the movie. It bothered me that Lois Lane had red hair and that she was such a damn damsel in distress. It also bothered me that Wonder Woman wasn’t the least bit buff, but here are some of the things I liked.

FAVORITE QUOTES

“With balls like yours… you belong
in here.”
•~General Swanwick to Lois Lane
(in the men’s restroom)

“Oh… I don’t think you’ve ever known a woman like me.”
•~Wonder Woman to Batman

“Tell me. Do you bleed? You will.”
•~Batman to Superman

“You’re not brave. Men are brave.”
•~Batman to Superman

“No one stays good in this world.”
•~Superman to Lois Lane

“This is my world. You are my world.”
•~Superman to Lois Lane

FAVORITE THINGS

#1– Batman hitting the iron. Loved that scene.♥

image

#2– Neil deGrasse Tyson cameo. He is my favorite astrophysicist/cosmologist.♥

#3– Doomsday!! ♥ I thought there weren’t any worth a hell villains in this flick?! I guess having General Zod become Doomsday makes him way more likeable.

A Villainess Vote 4 Batman

March 24, 2016

I’m totally going for Batman this weekend when I go see #BatmanvSuperman. I’m a DC gal, so I gotta see this flick. Do they really become friends in the end like I’ve heard though? What kind of movie is this for God’s sake? Is this the “Dawn of Justice” or what? I want to know where all the awesome, hell raising, #DCVillains are? Lex Luthor and General Zod just don’t do it for me. Waiting impatiently on #SuicideSquad.

••H♦Q... is missing from this movie... she's pro'ly wasting time on The Joker. A Deadpool pin was part of my H♦Q cosplay last year for the 2015 ABQ ComicCon.••

YeeeeaaaaahhhYaaaaah! I have a date with my Dead valentine on the “official” opening night in Albuquerque. There was actually an IMAX showing that quietly opened on the 11th, but by the time I signed in, all the good seats were taken. The 12th it is! I’m definitely a DC gal, but in this case, I can mess with Marvel. I can’t wait!!
