2018 April/May/June Update:

As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.

However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.

From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.

During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.

UPDATE: It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages. The primary page has now crossed 60,000 89,000 words and counting, the whole set of Avallac'h pages are now more than 200,000 words long, and more then 500 pictures of Avallac'h and his friends have now been uploaded on these pages, plus there are now 400+ hour-long videos f the costume making process as we record live, every second of this insanely elaborate, over the top CosPlay project.

As of May 19, just 29 days to PortCon we are embroidering his blue coat in a countdown against the clock to finish in time for the event, while we pray that The Dazzling Razzberry will be re-weilded back together and drivable in time for PortCon, after it's recent vandalism by Old Orchard Beach's ever growing Ku Klux Klan problem.

There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

  1. The Avallac'h CosPlay: Who is Avallac'h?
  2. Obsession: Meet Avallac'h
  3. [NSFW] Avallac'h & His Nude Women | Witcher 3 Game Screenshots
  4. Historical Accuracy vs Avallac'h (to go live later this summer)
  5. The Avallac'h CosPlay Costume Making Vlogs (will go live AFTER finishing the costume)
  6. How To Make The Avallac'h CosPlay (will go live AFTER PortCon)
  7. How Much Did It Cost? ($800+ will run to around $3,000) Budgeting The Avallac'h CosPlay (eing written as the costume is being made, will go live after completion of the costume)
  8. Why do children CosPlay rapists & rape victims? & WHY Avallac'h is a M18+ character. 
  9. PortConMaine 2018
  10. On Being a Handicapped CosPlayer: A Look At Events of PortConMaine 2017 That Resulted In 3 Disabled CosPlayers Getting hurt at The Convention and How These Things Could Have Been Avoided


After PortCon Update:

PortCon 2018 is over... but the making of the Avallac'h CosPlay is not. It is not possible to make a costume as detailed as I'm making in fewer then 400 hours, and only 129 hours went into the simplified first run version you saw at PortCon'18. The complete version will not be seen until PortCon'19

If you want to see this costume in person and watch it's progression onward as I continue to expand it... I'll be wearing it at the monthly Maine Association of CosPlay Enthusiasts (M.A.C.E.) events, throughout 2018 and 2019, you are welcome to join us. The list of current events can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/293470827423558/events/ This list is updated monthly, so be sure to check back often to find all the dates, locations, and details of events.



640 Social Media Hashtags For Authors, Writers, Readers, & Book Bloggers




Ads by Share-a-Sale

I keep getting messages from you guys asking me to republish my old help guides for authors articles, that I had published on Kboards between 2007 and 2012, before the Kboards hacker took over my account in 2013 and re-wrote them into gibberish madness. I think many of the people sending me these messages are unaware of the fact that the Kboards hacker's attack offline was far more deadly and brutal then they realize. Or that her attack left some members of my family dead, and me crippled for the rest of my life. Some seem to think that the attack was a one time and are not aware of the fact that there have been more than 200 attacks between 2006 and the latest on September 2017.

I understand that you miss the articles, but otherwise I wouldn't be swamped in "please, please, please, please please, bring them back" posts, comments, and emails. But you seem to be overlooking the amount of time the FBI investigation into the Kboard hacker takes up of my life. Or the fact that the hacker did more then just hack (and re-write) 1,371 pages of my site, but also filled my motorhome with thousands of gallons of feces and cut my cat's heads off and nailed their heads to my door. You fail to grasp the level of psychopathic deranged gay hating, white power, bomb building, cat murdering insanity this Kendra Silvermander person possesses or how far her levels of her violence offline and her cyberbullying online have reached.

So answering your questions as to when the old KB articles from my 52 Stories in 52 Weeks series is coming back... they come back in between court dates, police calls, FBI investigations, hospital visits, physical therapy, relearning to use my legs and hands, funerals, house bombs, bombs at the WalMart where I work, and bombs in my classrooms at college. 

That said, I have time today to put up one of the articles you guys requested, and here it is...
