#UPDATE: January 6, 2021:
To all of you who are sending me video clips this morning and asking "Is this your family?"...

To answer your questions...

* Yes... my relatives ARE on every news station in every country of the world today, yes they did ORGANIZE the attack on the Capitol Building... and I am horrified by it.

* No, before you guys sent me the video footage clips, I was unaware the attack had happened, I do not own a TV and do not seek out news reports on the internet, so had you not sent me those clips I would never have known the attack had happened at all

* Yes, many members of my extended-family were involved in organizing the attack on Washington D.C.; one of my aunts claims to be the organizer, she is now wanted by the FBI for questioning

* Yes, I can see 1 uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 1st cousins in those pictures and news reports.

* Yes, the shooter is the high priest cousin you saw posting gun photos and death threats on my FaceBook, Twitter, and Twitch chat

* Yes, that is the 2 cousins who founded the group "The Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan More Loyal Than The Loyal White Knights", in the gif/memes trashing reporter cameras and jumping on said cameras 

* YES, that IS the uncle who was paying the Discord tittie streamer $500 a month to stage the "deserve to be raped raids" on my Twitch channel 

* Yes, that uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 cousins ARE all members of Heaven's Gate and were party to the original UFO cult kool-aid murder suicide that killed 39 people in 1997

* No, I do not support anything they do or have done; it's been more than 30 years since I last saw, talked to, or interacted with any of them

#And please, stop forwarding video footage and news reports to me. I want nothing to do with those jackasses. We share DNA, not ideologies. They absolutely disgust me.

* If you were there, please be aware that 4 of them are now bragging on their social medias that they currently have Covid-19 and that they were spitting on police and government officials during the attack on the Capitol Building; yes it is confirmed they DO actually have Covid-19... 9 members of their immediate family have died in the past month and is what instigated them to join the mob at D.C.

* Yes, all of them are wanted by the FBI... if you have any information about ANY of their crimes INCLUDING today's attack on Washington D.C., do NOT send it to me, send it to the FBI agent in charge of the case: 

#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the investigation. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322

This whole thing is very distressing for me. I do not like the kind of attention that gets put on ME because I happen to be related to THEM.

Far too many people harass my family, online and offline, because of these dipshits in our rather distant family tree.

I prefer to stay out of the public eye and deeply dislike being pulled into the paparazzi spotlight every time this group of lunatics pulls one of these ridiculous terrorist attack stunts.

It was very distressing for me to wake up this morning to find email, and every contact method on every social media, packs full of thousands of questions, links, and forwards, all asking me if that was my family that was being plastered across every news station on the planet.

It was bad enough to learn a terrorist attack had happened and it was even worse to learn it was yet again my uncles behind it.

Though I can not say I'm surprised to learn these jackass dipshits I have to share DNA with were involved. This certainly isn't the first terrorist attack they took part in.

Considering this 1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins, all who took part in Heaven's Gate murder of 39 people in 1997, 1 of whom built the bomb for 2013's Boston Marathon, and 2 of whom founded the Loyalist White Knights... were involved in this attack too... I hope they get life in prison, they fucking deserve it.


#UPDATE: January 9, 2020....

Good news, one of them was just arrested in Florida. He's the guy all over Twitter today, waving to security cameras while stealing Nancy Pelosi's lecture pedestal. My relatives are insane. I hope he never gets out.

At least he can't post death threats and rape threats in my Twitch chat anymore. I hope they arrest them all.

Why do I have to share DNA with these psychotic lunatics?

You can support your political party without being a violent, crazed, psychopathic terroist, you know.

#And random thought...

You know... all the people saying Trump supporters should stop inciting violence and go read their Bible, clearly have never read the Bible and have no clue how much violence and genocide God commands in the Old Testament... shouldn't it be the Trumpies need LESS Bible influence? Isn't it the Bible that inspired them to be violent in the first place?

And you want to know something else...

26 of those people now arrested for attacking the Capitol, had ALREADY been reported, in October 2019, for planning an attack on the government...

I know beause I filed that report on 3 uncles, 2 auns, and 23 cousins when they started building bombs and bought 4,000 asult rifles, while claiming they were building an army.

This attack was a long time in the planning and couldhave been prevented and the FBI knew about it 2 years ago.

But hey... guess what... the FBI knew about the Heaven's Gate murder 8 MONTHS before those same 26 people murdered 39 people under the shadow of Hale-Bop... AND the FBI knew in 2012, 5 months ahead of time that these same 26 people were building bombs for the Boston Marathon.

Same 26 people over and over again. This time some of them actually got caught... but the Heaven's Gate crew, has 4,000 members in Maine, Florida, Mississippi, Wyomin, Colorado, and Nova Scotia.

They are gaining members all the time. They claim they are building God's army, they claim Trump is "the God-King" God's form on earth, they also believe he is a shapeshifting reptilian alien, and they claim to be waiting for a mothership that will fly in the shadow of Comet Wormwood.

They claim "when the Trump of jubilie sounds" they will be ready to kill all who oppose them, because they believe they are God's Army and they do not fear death, for they also believe that through death, they "will be changed in the twinkling of an eye" and transformed into mighty arch angels to enact vengange of all who oppose them.

They embrace death, to the point, like they did in 1997, they will kill themselves if they have to, and take everyone around them with them.

Heaven's Gate should be feared and they should be in prison, not building gallows on the front law of the Capitaol building while trying to hang the Vice President.

How many decades will Heaven's Gate's members be allowed to kill and main unbridled? They are terrorists and NEED to be arrested and put in prison, BEFORE they do what they are planning and unleash a bomb that will kill every one "East of the Mississippi" as they put it.

My uncle David is dangerous, and now with his brother Bruce, leader of Heaven's Gate since 1997, dead from Covid19, David's crew has become far more dangerous than they ever were.

This attack they staged on the Capitol, it's not the end, it was just them firing a warning shot of something far bigger yet to come.

They need to be stopped BEFORE they kill more people.

How many times will this same group be allowed to kill over and over again, before someone stops them?


1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins were there; they are the leaders of Heaven's Gate AND the Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; they have 4,000 members armed with assault rifles, ready to march on command, and that's JUST the group in Palmyra, Maine - they NEED to be stopped... this post they made on Twitter is NOT a joke... they WILL march Jan 19... they MUST be stopped... Jan 6 was just a warning shot

UPDATE: January 14, 2021
I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...

I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...


*if someone asks me to do something in exchange for a donation...? I stream, and today someone I've never seen before sent me a message on discord asking me if I want [insert ridiculous amount of money here]. I of course replied asking what for, and the guy replies saying 'complete 25 challenges, for example #1 would be pulling a funny face. If you complete all 25 challenges then I donate the money.' Oh, and he also sent me screenshots of what I assume is supposed to be proof that he's dono'd tons of money to others before. This seems sus AF to me. Should I just assume it's fake / he'll ask me to do something weird? What do?*


You've heard of the recent attacks on the American Capitol, right?

Have you NOT also heard about the 26 Twitch streamers who have found their name's on the FBI's no fly list even though they live in Europe and have never been to America?

Have you looked at today's day January 14 vs the date of the next 2 planned attacks, January 17 and January 20?

I doubt you'd ask this question if you HAD heard of what happened, so let me me summarize:

A group of terrorists spent several months planning an attack on Washington D.C. They took to intermingling with election rallies, so no one would suspect them. 

Meanwhile, online, they sought out a way to make 26 fake IDs for their group to use on attack day (January 6).

They ended up contacting 26 Twitch streamers the genders and approximate ages of the 26 people they had in their group going to D.C. 

Each streamer was sent an offer for being donated $500 in exchange for doing things. The streamers thought it seemed innocent enough and was easy money, so did it.

The reason for the $500 amount, was PayPal requires additional verification on large amounts, meaning, they were given the REAL NAMES AND HOME ADDRESSES of those 26 streamers. They next took those names and made 26 fake IDs using the names and addresses of those 26 streamers.

They used those fake IDs January 6 at D.C. and now as of Jan 7, those 26 streamers found their names on the FBI's no-fly list.

Those 26 terrorists, tossed the fake IDs and used their real IDs to leave D.C. and made their way back to Florida, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, successfully returning home, while hundreds of other rally attendants found themselves unable to get on planes.

Given what those 26 did just before Jan 6, I would question anyone asking something similar to any streamer, right now, this close to Jan 17.

I highly recommend you report them to the FBI as possibly connected to the Jan 17 attack. **[](**

The 26 people in question by the way... my uncle David, his wife Luci, his sister Barbie Jean, and 23 of their children, grandchildren, and great grand children... only one of whom so far has been arrested... the one who stole Nancy Pelosi's pulpit. On their way home to Palmyra, the rest showed up in my driveway January 11, to chant "All hail God King Trump" while bragging how they didn't get caught and outwitted the FBI and are going back to D.C. on Jan 17 and Jan 20.

Chances are VERY HIGH that the man contacting you was David's son Shem, who is the one who contacted the others prior to the Jan 6 attack, or so he bragged on Jan 11, while shooting off his rifils in my driveway, from a red 1980s vintage Jeep Cherokee.

Beware of the Atwaters, the Halls, the Cyrs, and the Johnsons... they ain't sending you money unless they are planning on using you to take the fall for some crime they plan to commit and blame on you. You'll go to jail and they'll walk free, like they always do, like they've been doing since the 1950s.

..UPDATE: January 14, 2021...
...NEW BAN RULES ADDED TO THE CHANNEL... ..............................
...From today forward ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight...
...I do not want any member of the 4Chan, 7Chan, Anon, QAnon or any similar terrorist organizations near my channel...

#As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATELY BAN** anyone and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#I do not want any member of this terrorist organization near my channel.

#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.

The "Chan" movement... OMG! They are fucking psychotic extremists. I had no clue what "Chan" meant or why people put it at the end of their username. Knowing what I know now and looking at the fact that the ringleader behind the 3 year long attack on my Twitch channel has the word "Chan" at the end of her username, the wild sex rumors she spreads about me FINALLY make sense.

Today one of my mods sent me the following message:

*"I noticed the girl trying to cancel you has "Chan" at the end of her username, as do many of her followers. I also noticed your confusion over her attacks and I wonder, do you know what "chan" means or why streamers put it at the end of their username? Everyone who has "Chan" at the end of their username is a witch hunting channel, it is how they identify themselves. It means they are extremist radical trolls from 4chan. There is even a wiki devoted to the "Chan Movement". Here, you'll want to read this. **[](** and this **[](**Twitter has started to ban anyone using "chan" at the end of their username because is identifies the user as connected with white supremacy hate groups. She's a QAnon terrorist and proud of it, that's why she has "chan" at the end of her name. That's why she is working with your uncles. She helped them plan the attack on the Capitol. She's a QAnon member. That's why she has the word "chan" at the end of her username. Every QAnon member does that. I didn't realize you had never heard of QAnon or 4Chan until I saw your Tweet last night. I'm s sorry. I thought you knew that is what she was. I would have messaged you sooner about this if I had known you didn't know what QAnon was. Also "Thingy" is a slang word, it means "a child's vagina" people put that in their username to signify they are supporters of child rape. These are really bad people attacking your channel. They are the same people who just attacked America's Capital. When they are chanting "ThingyChan" in your chat, it's a QAnon secret code word, it's another word for rape, it's a rape threat, it's them bypassing the NightBot ban of the word rape. It means they are threatening to gather up 4Chan members to rape you. 4Chan QAnon's use secret code words to bypass chat bans because they know most people don't know what the code words mean. It's like a Morse Code that only they know."*

Here is what the Wiki has to say:

>>>>*"4chan is an anonymous English-language imageboard website. Launched by Christopher "moot" Poole in October 2003, the site hosts boards dedicated to a wide variety of topics, from anime and manga to video games, music, literature, fitness, politics, and sports, among others. Registration is not available and users typically post anonymously; posting is ephemeral, as threads receiving recent replies are "bumped" to the top of their respective board and old threads are deleted as new ones are created. As of November 2020, 4chan receives more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, with more than 900,000 posts made daily."*



>>>>*"The site has been described as a hub of Internet subculture, with its community being influential in the formation of prominent Internet memes, such as lolcats, Rickrolling, and rage comics, as well as hacktivist and political movements, such as Anonymous and the alt-right. 4chan has often been the subject of media attention as a source of controversies, including the coordination of pranks and harassment against websites and Internet users, and the posting of illegal and offensive content. The Guardian once summarized the 4chan community as "lunatic, juvenile ... brilliant, ridiculous and alarming""*



>>>>*"Before the end of 2003, several new anime-related boards were added, including /h/ (Hentai), /c/ (Anime/Cute), /d/ (Hentai/Alternative), /w/ (Wallpapers/Anime), /y/ (Yaoi), and /a/ (Anime). Additionally, a lolicon board was created at /l/ (Lolikon),[26] but was disabled following the posting of genuine child pornography and ultimately deleted in October 2004, after threats of legal action."*



>>>>*"On November 17, 2018, it was announced that the site would be split into two, with the work-safe boards moved to a new domain,, while the NSFW boards would remain on the domain. In a series of posts on the topic, Nishimura explained that the split was due to 4chan being blacklisted by most advertising companies, and that the new 4channel domain would allow for the site to receive advertisements by mainstream ad providers."*



>>>>*"/pol/ ("Politically Incorrect") is 4chan's political discussion board. A stickied thread on its front page states that the board's intended purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics." /pol/ was created in October 2011 as a rebranding of 4chan's news board, /new/, which was deleted that January for a high volume of racist discussion."*



>>>>*"Although there had previously been a strong left-libertarian contingent to 4chan activists, there was a gradual rightward turn on 4chan's politics board in the early-mid 2010s. The board quickly attracted posters with a political persuasion that later would be described with a new term, the alt-right. Media sources have characterized /pol/ as predominantly racist and sexist, with many of its posts taking an explicitly neo-Nazi bent. The Southern Poverty Law Center regards /pol/'s rhetorical style as widely emulated by white supremacist websites such as The Daily Stormer; the Stormer's editor, Andrew Anglin, concurred. /pol/ was where screenshots of Trayvon Martin's hacked social media accounts were initially posted. The board's users have started antifeminist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Arab Twitter campaigns."*



>>>>*"The users of /r9k/ built upon by then popular 4chan memes "epic win" and "fail" to group the human population into "alphas" or stereotypical well-adjusted popular people and "betas" or stereotypical geek-ish social rejects, self-identifying with the latter. It became a popular gathering place for the controversial online incel community. The "beta uprising" or "beta rebellion" meme, the idea of taking revenge against women, jocks and others perceived as the cause of incels' problems, was popularized on the sub-section. It gained more traction on the forum following the Umpqua Community College shooting, where it is believed that the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, also warned people not to go to school in the Northwest hours prior to the shooting as users encouraged him. The perpetrator of the Toronto van attack referenced 4chan and an incel rebellion in a Facebook post he made prior to the attack while praising self-identified incel Elliot Rodger, the killer behind the 2014 Isla Vista killings. He claims to have talked with both Harper-Mercer and Rodger on Reddit and 4chan and believes that he was part of a "beta uprising", also posting a message on 4chan about his intention the day before his attack."*



>>>>*"Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as Anons or QAnons) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta. However, this may not always be the case as some of the collective prefer to instead cover their face without using the well-known mask as a disguise. Some anons also opt to mask their voices through voice changers or text-to-speech programs."*



>>>>*"On January 19, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice shut down the file-sharing site Megaupload on allegations of copyright infringement. Anons responded with a wave of DDoS attacks on U.S. government and copyright organizations, shutting down the sites for the RIAA, MPAA, Broadcast Music, Inc., and the FBI."*



>>>>*"In the wake of the fatal police shooting of unarmed African-American Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, "Operation Ferguson"—a hacktivist organization that claimed to be associated with Anonymous—organized cyberprotests against police, setting up a website and a Twitter account to do so. The group promised that if any protesters were harassed or harmed, they would attack the city's servers and computers, taking them offline. City officials said that e-mail systems were targeted and phones died, while the Internet crashed at the City Hall."*



>>>>*"In March 2016, Anonymous was reported to have declared war on Donald Trump. However, the "Anonymous Official" YouTube channel released a video denouncing #OpTrump as an operation that "goes against everything Anonymous stands for" in reference to censorship and added "we are for everyone letting their voices be heard, even, if the person at hand ... is a monster.""*



>>>>*"In late 2017, QAnon, a pro-Trump group claiming to be the "real" Anonymous, first emerged on 4chan. In response, anti-Trump members of Anonymous warned that QAnon was stealing the collective's branding."*



>>>>*"Since 2009, dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Anons generally protest these prosecutions and describe these individuals as martyrs to the movement. The July 2011 arrest of LulzSec member Topiary became a particular rallying point, leading to a widespread "Free Topiary" movement."*



>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal. QAnon also commonly asserts that Trump is planning a day of reckoning known as the "Storm", when thousands of members of the cabal will be arrested. The conspiracy claim is entirely fictitious. QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal. They have also claimed that Trump feigned conspiracy with Russians to enlist Robert Mueller to join him in exposing the sex trafficking ring and preventing a coup d'état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros. The QAnon conspiracy theories have been amplified by Russian state-backed troll accounts on social media, as well as Russian state-backed traditional media."*



>>>>*"Although preceded by similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate,[23][24] which has since become part of QAnon, the conspiracy theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan by "Q", who was presumably an American individual;[25] it is now more likely that "Q" has become a group of people acting under the same name. A stylometric analysis of Q posts claims to have uncovered that at least two people wrote as "Q" in different periods. Q claimed to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States. NBC News reported that three people took the original Q post and spread it across multiple media platforms to build an Internet following for profit. QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon. Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*



>>>>*"QAnon adherents began appearing at Trump reelection campaign rallies in August 2018. Bill Mitchell, a broadcaster who has promoted QAnon, attended a White House "social media summit" in July 2019. QAnon believers commonly tag their social media posts with the hashtag #WWG1WGA, signifying the motto "Where We Go One, We Go All". At an August 2019 rally, a man warming up the crowd used the QAnon motto, later denying that it was a QAnon reference. This occurred hours after the FBI published a report calling QAnon a potential source of domestic terrorism—the first time the agency had so rated a fringe conspiracy theory. According to analysis by Media Matters for America, as of October 2020, Trump had amplified QAnon messaging at least 265 times by retweeting or mentioning 152 Twitter accounts affiliated with QAnon, sometimes multiple times a day. QAnon followers came to refer to Trump as "Q+""*



>>>>*"The number of QAnon adherents is unclear as of October 2020, but the group maintains a large online following. In June 2020, Q exhorted followers to take a "digital soldiers oath", and many did, using the Twitter hashtag #TakeTheOath.[42] In July 2020, Twitter banned thousands of QAnon-affiliated accounts and changed its algorithms to reduce the conspiracy theory's spread.[43] A Facebook internal analysis reported in August found millions of followers across thousands of groups and pages; Facebook acted later that month to remove and restrict QAnon activity,[44][45] and in October it said it would ban the conspiracy theory from its platform altogether. Followers had also migrated to dedicated message boards such as EndChan and 8chan (now rebranded as "8kun"), where they organized to wage information warfare in an attempt to influence the 2020 United States presidential election.[47] Following Trump's loss to Joe Biden in the election, QAnon beliefs became a part of attempts to overturn the results and Trump's loss, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol, leading to a further crackdown on QAnon-affiliated content on social media."*



>>>>*"Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement that is widely known for its various cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology."*



>>>>*"Project Chanology (also called Operation Chanology) was a protest movement against the practices of the Church of Scientology by members of Anonymous, a leaderless Internet-based group. The project was started in response to the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove material from a highly publicized interview with Scientologist Tom Cruise from the Internet in January 2008."*



>>>>*"The project was publicly launched in the form of a video posted to YouTube, "Message to Scientology", on January 21, 2008. The video states that Anonymous views Scientology's actions as Internet censorship, and asserts the group's intent to "expel the church from the Internet". This was followed by distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), and soon after, black faxes, prank calls, and other measures intended to disrupt the Church of Scientology's operations. In February 2008, the focus of the protest shifted to legal methods, including nonviolent protests and an attempt to get the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status in the United States."*



>>>>*"Reactions from the Church of Scientology regarding the protesters' actions have varied. Initially, one spokesperson stated that members of the group "have got some wrong information" about Scientology. Another referred to the group as a group of "computer geeks". Later, the Church of Scientology started referring to Anonymous as "cyberterrorists" perpetrating "religious hate crimes" against the church."*



>>>>*"Members of Project Chanology say their main goal is "to enlighten the Church of Scientology (CoS) by any means necessary.""*



>>>>*"Project Chanology began its campaign by organizing and delivering a series of denial-of-service attacks against Scientology websites and flooding Scientology centers with prank calls and black faxes. The group was successful in taking down local and global Scientology websites intermittently from January 18, 2008 until at least January 25, 2008."*



>>>>*"Protesters in Boston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Edinburgh, London, and other cities worldwide, wore Guy Fawkes masks modeled after the 2005 film V for Vendetta. Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic executed for a 1605 attempt to destroy the House of Lords. In V for Vendetta, a rebel against a near-future fascist regime uses the mask in his public appearances and distributes many of its copies to the population to enable mass protests."*



>>>>*"According to The Washington Post, "the site's users have managed to pull off some of the highest-profile collective actions in the history of the Internet."*



>>>>*"Users of 4chan and other websites "raided" Hal Turner by launching DDoS attacks and prank calling his phone-in radio show during December 2006 and January 2007. The attacks caused Turner's website to go offline. This cost thousands of dollars of bandwidth bills according to Turner. In response, Turner sued 4chan, 7chan, and other websites; however, he lost his plea for an injunction and failed to receive letters from the court."*



>>>>*"KTTV Fox 11 aired a report on Anonymous, calling them a group of "hackers on steroids", "domestic terrorists", and collectively an "Internet hate machine" on July 26, 2007.[137] Slashdot founder Rob Malda posted a comment made by another Slashdot user, Miang, stating that the story focused mainly on users of "4chan, 7chan and 420chan". Miang claimed that the report "seems to confuse /b/ raids and motivational poster templates with a genuine threat to the American public", arguing that the "unrelated" footage of a van exploding shown in the report was to "equate anonymous posting with domestic terror"."*



>>>>*"In May 2009, members of the site attacked YouTube, posting pornographic videos on the site. A 4chan member acknowledged being part of the attack, telling BBC News that it was in response to YouTube "deleting music"."*



>>>>*"On October 18, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security warned National Football League officials in Miami, New York City, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland, and Cleveland about a possible threat involving the simultaneous use of dirty bombs at stadiums. The threat claimed that the attack would be carried out on October 22, the final day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan."*



>>>>*"On November 29, 2010, Ali Saad, a 19-year-old, was arrested and had his home raided by the FBI for posting child pornography and death threats on 4chan. Ali had first visited 4chan "a week before [the FBI raid] happened". He admitted to downloading about 25 child pornography images from 4chan."*

The body was discovered in Port Orchard, Washington, after the images were posted. The posts were accompanied by the text: "Turns out it's way harder to strangle someone to death than it looks on the movies." A later post said: "Check the news for Port Orchard, Washington, in a few hours. Her son will be home from school soon. He'll find her, then call the cops. I just wanted to share the pics before they find me." The victim was Amber Lynn Coplin, aged 30. The suspect, 33-year-old David Michael Kalac, surrendered to police in Oregon later the same day; he was charged with second-degree murder involving domestic violence. Kalac was convicted in April 2017 and was sentenced to 82 years in prison the following month."*

The suspect took pictures of the victim's bloodied deceased body and posted it to Discord and his own Instagram page. The photos were widely shared on Instagram and other sites, particularly on 4chan where many users mocked and celebrated her death, saying she deserved it and praising the killer while depicting Devins as a manipulative young woman.

Those are just a few highlights of what the Wiki has to say about the Chan Movement and why so many users on Twitch and Twitter tac the word "chan" to the end of their username.

If you want to read the full aticle to find out all the horrors of this horrendouse group of terrorists, here is the link:

On a side note... do you remember in June 2016 when a group of crazy protestors showed up in my driveway chanting that my family was "Satan worshiping pedophile cannibals of the Scottish Mafia"? Well, it says on that Wiki:

>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal."*



Does that me those people in my driveway that day were QAnon members?

Scary... that group included 2 Mormon Bishops, the Old Orchard Beach Town Manager, several motel owners from Old Orchard Beach, an excavation owner in Old Orchard Beach, and 2 Old Orchard Beach Town councillors... uhm... does that mean Old Orchard Beach is infested with QAnon members?

I think I am finally starting to understand the weird accusations that get tossed at me and my family... like being called "Scottish Mafia" when we are not, and being called a "BDSM Dominatrix" when I am not, and being called a "Satan Worshiper" when I am not, or being called "pedophiles' or "cannibals" when we are not.

I never understood these accusations or what the possible source could have been, but I had never heard of QAnon until 2 days ago when Twitter announced they banned 70,000 QAnon members off Twitter, following the terrorist attack in Washington D.C. earlier this week. 

The Tweet my mod was referencing, was a Tweet where I asked "What is QAnon? I never heard of it before."

Okay, so now understand WHERE they got the accusations from, they apparently say those things about everyone. But the question still stands: Why me? Why my family? Why my Twitch channel? How did I become a target for members of such bizarre, psychotically deraged terroist group? 

Also... it says QAnon started in October 2017... but those people who were in my yard, the first time they showed up was April 10, 2015, and they arrived again May 14, 2015, June 12, 2015, September 12, 2015, and each time they showed up the group was bigger. They continued to show up throughout 2016.

Each group was lead by a masked man who always kept his face hidden. The group members called him "Mark" and "Mark Who Needs No Last Name"... he was a tiny elderly man about 5'9" very skinny, and had unkept white hair. He always arrived driving a backhoe, which is the same backhoe that drove over my house August 8, 2013. He was the one seen shooting at me and my family in several livestreams. He was prone to showing up while I was livestreaming... I think he used my livestream schedual to determine if I was home, and I also think he was trying to "get his 15 minutes of fame" because he was always trying to get himself and his rifales on my webcams.

All of it was recorded via those livestreams *(yes, this is why several Witcher 3 VODs are not available for you to watch... it's the ones with the terrorist attacks on my family in them.)*, and all the video footage forwarded to local police, who in turn forwarded it to the FBI, and the FBI assigned Agent Andy Drewer to the case June 26, 2016.

All of that was a full 2 years before the October 2017 date in that article.

#UPDATED to answer this question:


*How is it you have never heard of 4chan or QAnon? I thought you were a dark webber? Everyone always talks about how you know all the darkest deepest sites on the internet. 4chan is like the biggest dark web website ever.*


Uhm... WHO exactly says I know dark web websites and what exactly is a dark webber?

I've been on the internet since 1996, but I build websites, I don't visit websites. In my 25 years on the internet I've probably visited fewer than 100 websites total, if that many. In fact, I can list off the top of my head websites I visit and use:

* Amazon

* Blogger/BlogSpot (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* Deviantart (as a blog writer, I don't read/view content by others)

* eBay

* FaceBook

* FanFiction.Net (not visited since 2011)

* LinkedIn (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* LiveJournal (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* MySpace

* Nexus

* Pinterest

* SoapBox

* Squidoo (ceased to exist 2013)

* Twitch

* Twitter

* WordPress (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* YouTube

* Zazzle

Wow... not only didn't reach 100, I didn't even reach 20.

I find it rather laughable that you or ANY ONE would think of me as someone who knows "dark web" web sites.

When exactly do you think I have time to browse the internet to even look for any website at all?

I work 80 to 120 hour weeks. 

I publish 4 novels a year, dozens of short stories a month, 2 to 3 non-fiction articles every day, paint on canvas with acrylic art for **[new merch products](** weekly, write for 12 blogs, and a manage/edit/write for 200 websites **[like this one](** which I built from the ground up and am the ONLY person managing/editing/writing for... AND I'm a retail merchandiser for HallMark travelling hundreds of miles a week to set up displays at WalMarts, CVS, Post Offices, WalGreens, and Khols all over New England. On top of all of that I make YouTube videos AND stream on Twitch.

So, explain to me WHEN you think it is that I have any free time for browsing the internet? 

I don't know who told you I was a "dark webber" or that I would know anything about "dark web" web sites, but, honey... check their username... did it say "Chan" at the end of their name? Yeah... THEY are a "dark webber" who visits "dark web" websites, not me, as can be clearly seen by them putting "Chan" at the end of their username.

You might want to reconsider where you get your information about me, who you get your information about me from, and fact check the source of the information you get about me.

If you could recommend I watch one VOD that best represented your channel, which would it be?

This one....

Lord Sesshomaru VS Historical Accuracy: Info On Making A Historically Accurate Costume

Info On Making A Historically Accurate Costume

A common question asked by Sesshomaru CosPlayers, is: "Is is possible to make this costume historically accurate?". While the common answer is a resounding "No!", I say otherwise. It can be done, if you have the time and the patience to make a careful study of Asian history.

Since I am making just such a costume, I must therefor look into such research, and so, I have made this lens to share my findings with those who wish to do the same. The point of this lens, is to look at what Rumiko Takahashi wrote (and drew) about Lord Sesshomaru in the manga and compare it with actual history. Not an easy feat actually, as her fantasy story strays greatly from actual history.

Originally part of my Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens, this topic is now a lens of it's own, because it expanded to long to remain as a part of another lens.

Instructions for Making a Lord Sesshomaru Costume

Originally part of my Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens, this topic is now a lens of it's own, because it expanded to long to remain as a part of another lens.

  • Lord Sesshomaru Costume
  • Need help creating a Lord Sesshomaru costume? You've come to the right place. I am currently in the process of making a Lord Sesshomaru costume. No idea when...

What I Am DoingOr the Insanity of Using a Fictional Character For The SCA

In light of the onslaught of flaming and hate emails I have gotten because of this lens (due to several Shess fans being angry over my "changing" my costume and making it historically accurate as opposed to comic book accurate), I am now adding this "intro" to attempt to explain to his other fans what it is I am doing here. I hope that by adding this section, it'll clear up any confusion you had, and help you to understand that I am not changing the character himself.

For those who just saw the mention of the SCA here and did a double take, yes, you did read that correctly. The SCA. That historical society known for it's outspoken rigidness of sewing every stitch of garb by hand and using only historically accurate methods, with historically accurate fabrics and in the end recreating actual reproductions of garments worn through out history.


The SCA which holds costume contests and judges you not on your creativity, but on your ability to create the most historically accurate garment possible.

You have to create an entire fictional person, write up their history, register their name and birthplace, and the year from which they currently live (any year up to 1599) , and than you must learn to eat what they eat, talk the way they talked, wear what they wore, right down to historically accurate underwear... (now there's an interesting thought, I wonder what Sessho wears under his kimono?)... they construct tents accurate to the character's time and place, and they spend a whole weekend or week living in them. Sword fights and joisting tormaments are often done with real sword and lances... and yes, horses, chickens and other animals are usually wandering around the grounds. The knights you see walking around are wearing 100% authentic armor some weighing in at more than 200lbs! This is the SCA. The SCA is living history at it's most extreme, and it is for this, that I am making my Sessho Maru costume. Now granted most SCAndians don't go all out extreme, because, well, extreme accuracy is expensive, and the average SCAndian is just looking to meet with a group of fellow history loving CosPlayers. The extremes in accuracy are pretty much limited to SCAndians looking to enter contents.

My Lord Sesshomaru costume is being made historically accurate, because when it is finished, I plan to do the unthinkable and enter it into an SCA sewing contest. Why is that unthinkable? Because Lord Sesshomaru is a fictional character. He never existed. And in the SCA, THAT is a major crime that will send the accuracy police running for the hills.

It is possible to enter a fictional character's outfit, if said fiction character's outfit is historically accurate. While Sessho isn't 100% accurate to history, he's pretty darn close, close enough for me to think I can pull something like this off. Wither or not I actually win the competition isn't the issue here, as much as just getting it entered. Of course I'd love to win, sure, but, you gotta be approved to be entered into the contest first. And that is my goal: to enter a fictional character into an SCA sewing contest, just to prove I can. I have already received criticisms from a few of the SCA's most strict members. Okay, that's cool, I expected as much, it was bound to happen.

Okay, so my project goes against everything they stand for. I get that. But you know what's really funny? You are not allowed to register an actual historical figure from history! You must BASE you character on a real person, but you can't be that real person. You must base you cloths on real cloths that were really worn, but you can't make the actual outfits worn by famous peoples. WHAT! You can ONLY enter fictional characters! Ooooh the irony of it all! It is to laugh.

Well, it's no secret I love history, esp Medieval history, and it's no secret I'm obsessed with Sessho Maru, so, it's the perfect project me which I'll just plan have fun doing for the next year (or two). Wither or not I can enter it in the SCA once it is finished, actually isn't all that important really, it's more me just wanting to try taking a fictional character and creating a costume that I'll love and love wearing.

And a final note in closing: No I am not a member of the SCA or any other group or organization. And no this "costume" that I am making is not a costume. I dress like this 24/7 and have done so for more than 20 years now. I do not own a shared of "normal" cloths, nor would I even consider wearing "normal" cloths. This "costume", when finished, shall be worn as part of my daily wardrobe, just like all of the other "costumes" which make up my daily street wear. I hope that my adding this section, helps to clear up whatever confusion people had about this and will put an end once and for all to the hundreds of nasty emails I have gotten since the creation of this lens.

Now, back to the lens. . .

Why I Wrote This:

Ah... like my Mokomoko lens, this lens has caused a minor outrage among Sessho fans. Oh well, such is life. Why have I written this lens? To inform others? Actually, no. I am making this costume right now. I am making this costume to SCA standards. In order to meet with the SCA approval certain guidelines must be followed. A character's date and place of birth must be known. Where they lived and when they lived there must be known. What they wore when they lived where they did, must be known. These things must be recorded and written down and submitted with the costume in question, when it is entered into a sewing compattiion. Why? Because the SCA does not judge you on creativity, like a CosPlay competition does. As I have said hundreds of times all across the internet now, what I am making is NOT a typical CosPlay costume. That fact can not be overstated. The SCA judges you on HISTORICAL ACCURACY.

In order for me to make sure that I am making my costume as historically accurate as possible, I must therefor trace Sessho Maru's history, what little we know of it, and cross reference it with ACTUAL HISTORY from REAL Medieval Japan. In other words I have to treat a fictional character as though he were a real historical figure, in order to make this costume.

In other words, if you get any benefit from this info, than good for you, but this is being written as a reference point for my own costume so, basically, this lens is like reading my fashion design notebook, as I take a fantasy outfit and compare it to what was worn by real men.

Also, this info is being written as I sew Sessho's pink court robes from the third movie, thus it is the third movie that has gone under much review here.

Why People Wore What They Wore: European Outfits vs Asian Outfits

In examining Sessho's outfit we must keep in mind that Sessho Maru lives in Medieval Japan. Medieval Japan had a very strict set of laws governing who could wear what and when they could wear it. Only certain people were allowed to wear certain styles and certain colors. Sumptuary laws were in effect for most regions at most times during Japan's history. They varied from year to year and place to place, but they basically were there all the time.

In Medieval Europe sumptuary laws were very different from Japan's sumptuary laws. In Europe sumptuary laws, said such things as only the rich could wear buttons, or shoes can't be any taller than this. They were simple and basic. In Japan however, everything from the cut of the cloth, to the length of the sleeves to the color of the dye to wither it was embroidered or not had significant meaning.

Think of cloths in Medieval Japan, as being like a European/American soldier's uniform. One star meant one rank, while a stripe and a star meant a different rank, and two stripes and no star was an even different rank, and so on. In America and Europe only soldiers wear rank on their sleeves. In Medieval Japan, every body wore their rank on their sleeves, in fact, it was the sleeves themselves that told you the most about a person: length, width, color, design, and design placement all had meaning. One look at a person's outfit told you their birthplace, family name, age, occupation, marital status, wither or not they were a virgin, what religion they belonged to, how much wealth they possessed, and anything else you could every want to know about them. It was not a case of, I think I feel like wear green today, it was, "Hello, nice to meet you, I'm wearing this shade of green because it tells you that I am . . ."

When Europeans/Americans look at a Medieval Japanese outfit, they rarely look at it and see it for what it is, because they are unaccustomed to wearing cloths that are anything other than a fashion statement. It is very difficult for them to grasp the concept of how these outfits were being worn, and as such it is easy to look at a character like Sessho Maru and not realize just what it is exactly that his cloths tell us about him. And actually, they tell us quite a bit.

This is a culture where everyone knew there place and no one wore anything unbefitting to their place on the social ladder. If we look at Sessho Maru and compare him to the real history of Medieval Japan, than we know in an instant that here is a man who if he is not on the top rung of the social ladder, than he's pretty darn close to it and is about to take over first place.

A Note About Historical Accuracy vs Lord Sesshomaru:

For those interested in making Lord Sesshomaru's outfit historically accurate, it should be noted that, if you attempt to do so, you will be taking an already difficult and advanced costume, and turning it in an extremely advanced, and very difficult project. You must keep in mind that as it is, Sesshomaru's outfits are NOT historically accurate and an attempt to make them so, means a complete redesign of the costume, and an end result that will look a bit different from what is seen in the books and on the show.

One of the problems with making Lord Sesshomaru's wardrobe historically accurate is his age, his history, and his lifestyle, all of which I shall look at and compare to real Medieval Japan.

Lord Sesshomaru

Historical Accuracy VS Sesshomaru's Age

  • First off his exact age is unknown. To determine his age we have to look at the information we are told and make an educated guess. Early in the series, Rumiko indicates the Sesshomaru is 250 years old. Than a few years later, we are told that he fought in a war 700 years in the past, making him at least that old. Even later in the series we are told that Sesshomaru is not a normal demon, but is some sort of immortal being and has been around for a very long time, with the mention of "thousands of years" being thrown into the conversation.

  • Samurai armies that attack Sesshomaru, come at him with rifles. We know that rifles were invented in 1557, and that the series tells us they were just recently invented. The series follows a time span of approximately 3 years. This dates the InuYasha series at being from 1557 - 1559, most of which taking place in 1558.

  • So, if we use that information in order to find a date, we come to the conclusion that Lord Sesshomaru was born at some point prior to 800 A.D. How far prior is unknown, because we do not know for certain how old he is.

  • Why is this important? Well, if you want to go the historically accurate road, than you are going to need to research, who was wearing what, and when they wore it, and than change Sesshomaru's outfit to match.

  • In researching the history of various elements of Lord Sesshomaru's outfits, we find that each item comes from a different time period in history, and from a wide range of cultures. Items that in real life history would not have been worn together. This posses problems for someone bent on historical accuracy, and gives you one of two choices:

  • 1) One you can instead study what a feudal lord of 1558 would have worn and make that outfit.

  • 2) You can go with #1, but assume you are dealing with a well traveled and quite eccentric fuel lord, and make each item historically accurate to their time period and culture, and than wear them all at once. This would be more accurate to staying in keeping with Lord Sesshomaru, but less historically accurate.

  • When we look at what Sesshomaru wears, and consider each item and when and where it should have been worn, we are reminded, that Sesshomaru is very, very, very old. At some point in history the item was in fashion and he started wearing it, but with humans fashions die quickly and new fashions replace them. Sesshomaru, though a fashionable creature in his own right, does not stay current with human fashions and apparently once he starts wearing something he likes to wear, well continue to wear it for centuries, even after the rest of the world had stopped wearing them centuries ago.

In other words, what we see Sesshomaru wearing by the time we see him in 1558, is a mish-mash of items he collected up over a period of many centuries and during his travels across Asia, and the result is a very out-moded, old fashioned, and eccentric outfit, that screams bohemian.

Inu No Taishou

Historical Accuracy VS Sesshomaru's Past History

While age posses a problem with Sesshomaru's costume being historically accurate, his lifestyle posses an even bigger problem. In looking at his wardrobe, we can come to only one conclusion: Sesshomaru is an anachronist. He wears cloths out of time and out of culture.

The biggest problem for the costumer, is that they head into this project assuming that because Sesshomaru comes from a Japanese series, that he must therefore be wearing Japanese cloths. This is the farthest things from the truth, however. Sesshomaru wears a Japanese kimono or kosode, and pretty much nothing else of his wardrobe is Japanese. To find the reason for this we must look into his life.

  • Rumiko tells us that Lord Sesshomaru took over his father's empire when his father died. She tells us that his father was the Ruler of the Western Lands, the title now belonging to Sesshomaru, and the reason we call him "Lord". Rumiko never actual tells us where the Western Lands are though, nor does she ever say if the Western Lands are even in Japan. Another fact of note here, to make it all even more confusing, is that Rumiko only tells us Sesshomaru is from the Western Lands in interviews, she never actually says this in either the manga or the anime. In both the manga and the anime based on it, we are never actually told any background history about Sesshomaru at all. Keeping in mind here, that Sesshomaru is only a very minor character seen at a rate of once in every 10 or 20 chapters, thus the meaning there is very little reason for Rumiko to ever write any history about him at all.

  • So, Rumiko told us that Sesshomaru hails from "The Western Lands", and off handed remark, which may or may not be considered true, depending on wither or not you include interviews with Rumiko as part of the series.

  • Well, for the sake of this essay we well assume that Everything Rumiko ever said in an interview is true to the series, and as such, we will assume that Sesshomaru does in fact hail from these so called "Western Lands". The trick now is to figure out which Western Lands it is that Rumiko was referring to.

  • At first we assume that The Western Lands are someplace in the Western side of Japan, but a closer study of the series, suggests otherwise. Let's look for a moment at InuYasha himself.

  • Throughout the series, InuYasha battles a wide variety of demons. Every chapter a new demon comes along that need vanquishing. Every once in a while a demon will show up, wearing an outfit, oddly familiar to Sesshomaru's. Each time a demon of this sort shows up they are greeted with discontent, and the question "You're from the continent, aren't you?". Miroku's sutras never work on these demons, because as he often says, he has to rewrite them in the native language from the continent. Through out the series, we see that the Japanese demons do not take a liking to any demon that came to the island from the continent. Keeping in mind here, that the only person who ever uses the word "Japan" is Kagome, because in the past the word was not yet known.

  • To clarify this, we must remember that in the series, Japan is always referred to as "The Island" while China is always referred to as "The Continent". Oddly in the anime, such Chinese or continent dwelling demons, are mentioned as coming from the "Western Lands".

  • Ah-Huh! Now we are getting somewhere.

  • A note here, that THIS is the only time the phrase "Western Lands" is ever actually used in the series, and that Sesshomaru was no where's near this episode in which the phrase was being used. So you see, again, the Western Lands thing is questionable at best, when used in regards to Sesshomaru, however, Rumiko once said it, so we are going to continue on with it.

  • Back again now to Sesshomaru and his odd mode of dress. When we go to the history books, and look through museums we see that much of Sesshomaru's outfit is not historically accurate for Japan. In order to find much of his outfit in the real world we have to look through history books of Chine rather than Japan. This makes for so very conflicting questions; namely : Why is a Japanese lord wearing a Chinese outfit?

  • Most of Sesshomaru's outfit is Chinese not Japanese. He looks quite out of place among the other Japanese characters, however, if we take into account that The Western Lands are in China and NOT Japan, makes his Chinese mode of dress, quite natural for him.

  • Here's another off thing: InuYasha and Sessomaru are supposedly Foo-Dogs. Very odd, because Foo Dogs are the guardians of imperial China. In fact, Dog Demon run ranpant in Chinese mythology, and yet, are almost non-existent in Japanese mythology.

  • Another thing to consider is this: InuYasha a half breed, is outcast for being a half breed, which is unusual in the series as many other half breed demons are fairly well accepted. Well, not accepted, but certainly not persecuted the way InuYasha is. Most half breed demons in the series are, half Japanese Demon and half Japanese Human. But looking at the general contempt for Chinese demons in the series, (who are always portrayed as being very evil, btw) we must ask the question: Is InuYasha not only half demon, but also half Japanese?

  • If the Dog Demon Tribe, as we have already determined, are from China than the attack on the palace now makes much more sence. We know that there was such a hatred for InuYasha, that the day of his birth, the empire revolted against their Dog Demon leader, stormed the palace, burnt it to the ground, and slaughtered everyone inside. Sesshomaru survived because he was not home when this happened, and InuYasha and his mother survived, because his father protected them so she could escape, but he died doing so. She took her only minutes old baby InuYasha and fled back to her homeland of Japan.

  • Also, note here, that the palace of InuYasha's father, was an exact replica of China's Forbidden City. Odd. Why are they living in what is clearly a Chinese and not Japanese palace?

  • Back to InuYasha's mother. We must ask why she fled back to her homeland, and why, the empire rose up against their leader for taken a Japanese Human as his second wife. It seems therefore more accurate to assume that The revolt was caused not by a demon marrying a human, but by a Chinese Demon marrying a Japanese Human.

Another thing to note, is that in real mythology, the tales of dog demons come from Chinese mythology, not Japanese mythology, thus making it even more logical (and historically accurate) to assume that Sesshomaru is Chinese rather than Japanese.

We now have an answer as to why Lord Sesshhomaru's outfits look so very Chinese. Now we must ask, how did he come to live in Japan, by the time of the InuYasha series?

Of course, there is the fact that while living in the Chinese looking palace, Sesshomaru was already wearing Japanese items with his Chinese items, so we question here, are the Dog Demons than Japanese, but for some reason left Japan to rule over China and than returned to Japan by the time of the manga time line?

Another thing we have to question is why does Sesshomaru have a pet dragon? Why does he seem to spend much of his time hunting down dragons. (He does this 5 times in the anime and even more in the manga). Why is this an issue? Well, Japanese are famous through out history for their shunning the Chinese belief in dragons. At no point in Japanese history, did the Japanese believe in dragons. At no point in Japanese history is there any mention of dragons. In China on the other hand, dragon legends run rampant. In the InuYasha series it is only Sesshomaru who has a pet dragon, only Sesshomaru who spends his time hunting dragons, and only in China and not Japan do we find dragons, so again, yet one more finger pointing to China.

It would all be so much easier if Rumiko had been clearer on what she meant by Western Lands. Oh well.

Lord Sesshomaru

Historical Accuracy VS Sesshomaru's Lifestyle

After InuYasha's birth, his father's death, and the destruction of the family palace, Sesshomaru took his pet dragon and set out on foot on a personal spiritual quest to become a more powerful demon than his father was. (His father have been the most powerful demon to ever exist.) Though Sesshomaru is said to be the most powerful demon alive, now that his father is dead, he is not satisfied with this and now seeks to make himself more powerful than his father was in order to gain the title of the most powerful demon ever. Oddly this quest seems to have effected what Sesshomaru wears.

By the time we see him in the InuYasha series, Lord Sesshomaru has been on his spirit quest for some 250 years, and in that time has picked up Portuguese and Mongolian influences into his mode of dress. We must assume that this is a result of his having spent time in Portugal and Mongolia at some point prior to his coming to Japan.

And thus brings us to the problem of creating an historically accurate version of Lord Sesshomaru's outfits.

To be historically accurate, we would have to assume we are dealing with a human not a demon, thus effecting the time span. We must also assume that we are dealing with a rather eccentric Chinese Lord, who has abandoned his empire to go on a quest, which lead him to live for some time in Portugal, and for another space of time in Mongolia, before finally arriving to settle down in Japan, where he now seeks to build himself a new empire.

Is this doable? Yes, but it requires a massive study of four separate cultures in order to pull it off. Historically, one would not have worn the mixed and matched pieces from such a wide range of cultures.

A final and rather interesting thing to note here, is that to make Lord Sesshomaru's outfits, just a bit more outlandish, we must also take into consideration the fact that he is wearing women's cloths and not mens cloths, and therefore to be historically accurate, you would have to study the women's clothing styles from history and NOT the men's clothing styles. This leads us to believe that Lord Sesshomaru is for some unknown reason a cross-dresser, which historically we have very little info on, as this was not a common thing. Because this is such a different topic, I have written yet another essay, devoted entirely to looking at the way Sesshomaru dresses, and why the evidence suggests that he is a cross dresser. You can that article that here:

  • Okay, admit it, the first time you saw Lord Sesshomaru, you said to yourself: "What a hot chick!" and than fifty seconds later you found yourself saying: "OMG!...

From Cross Dressing To a Fan Girls Worst NightmareThe Implications of The Untouchable Demon Who Wears a Kato-suso Furisode and a Crescent Moon

Well, a while back, I had mentioned this in passing elsewhere, an off handed comment, not even a full sentence and the result was ... uhm ... interesting? YIKES! Rabid Sessho lovers watch out, you are so not going to like this. I will write this and than I will go hide.

Okay, looking at Sessho's kimono, unraveled some interesting results. Sessho's kasode (kimono) is of the early Momoyama style called kato-suso. Unlike decorations of the earlier periods, which were painted on or dyed, the designs on a kato-suso are completely and 100% hand embroidered. What this means is that Sessho's kimono is made out of a delicate hand woven white silk, and the red bands (or purple or blue or pink depending on which one you are looking at) are completely filled in with embroidery.

The reason for this info being added here is that it helps us to farther date this character. In fact, it narrows are time line window by a bunch, because kato-suso like Sessho's were only worn for a very short time: specifically from about 1568 to about 1615, with there height of fashion being during the 1570's.

It is interesting to note here that while kato-suso were worn by many people, the white and red coloring worn by Sessho Maru was quite rare. Remember what I said earlier about garment styles and colors having meaning? Well here is where that meaning comes into full view and we learn why we address our beloved Sessho Maru as "Lord".

What we are looking at specifically is a Beni Kato-suso. Beni is short for benibana, the flower used to create the red dye, with was used to dye the threads used to embroider the red bands on the kimono. Beni was very expensive and very rare, only the very wealthiest could afford to wear something made out of beni and as such, very few wore this lavish color. A beni kato-suso made out white silk (as opposed to dyed silk) is even more rare. Most nobles had theirs made out of pale blue or gold silk. Sessho Maru's is pure white.

Sessho's kimono tells us that he is not only a very wealthy daimyo (feudal lord) but that he is very likely to be an astoundingly wealthy daimyo carrying a shogun title (lord of lords), otherwise he would not be wearing this kimono.

One odd thing to note here however. While the pattern and color of his kimono are accurate to the Momoyama time line, the cut of the sleeves are that of an Edo period Furisode. We have a time line discrepancy here. Normally a time line discrepancy would be an issue, but there is an even bigger issue at hand now and that is: Why is Sessho Maru wearing a furisode?

What is a furisode? It is any kimono/kosode that has a certain type of sleeve, namely the big long billowing sleeves that Sessho Maru wears. Furisode is the name for the type of sleeve, the sleeves being the part of the kimono that tells us the most about the person wearing the kimono and the odd thing here is that men do not wear furisode. Furisode are only worn by unmarried/virgin women. It's the thing that they wear to tell the world: "Hello, I'm as pure as driven snow, no one has ever touched me and you can't touch me either."

Don't start screaming yet, I've only just started. There's more.

Once we get past the fact that he's cross dressing and he's doing it by wearing cloths that scream "virgin", than we got to look at that troublesome tattoo or war paint or whatever that thing is he's got branded across his forehead. That blue crescent moon. A symbol of chastity, womanhood, and worn to tell the world that you've taken a vow of celibacy. This is a strange symbol in that it's meaning is almost universal, seen in nearly all cultures, can be traced back several thousand years, and nearly always means that the person wearing it has taking a vow to devote themselves to religion/power and is doing so by living a life devoid of sex, because such a life is said to make one stronger bother physically and spiritually. BIG YIKES! Sessho is very likely to do just that, given his obsession with becoming the most powerful demon ever.

An interesting thing about the crescent moon is it is probably the most historically accurate part of his entire outfit! Again though, for China, not Japan... how odd.

Lord Sesshomaru's make up, while it may seem a bit outlandish today, was at one time rather fashionable and a very real style worn by women every day. Note here, that men did not wear this style make-up, only women did, again with the cross dresser bit.

Lord Sesshomaru's make-up comes from the Tang Dynasty of China (circa 627 - 907). Women of the Tang Dynasty wore elaborate facial make up. They started out by powdering their faces white.

On their foreheads were painted crescent moons or flower petals or shapes. These crescents were made out of feathers, seashells, fish bones, pure gold, or painted on dye. This was called Shouyang or Plum Blossom Make-Up. Everything had different meanings so you as usual, could look at a person and say" "I know you are a ___ because you are wearing a ___".

At the sides of their eyes were painted red stripes, extending to the cheeks. This was called Morning Sun Make Up because the stripes were the color of a rose sunrise. This type of make up was done by women who sought to mimic the look of Xue Yelai, Emperor Coa Pi's favorite imperial concubine, who had a red scar on her face.

It has already be determined that Sesshomaru lived in China during the 800's putting him in the Tang Dynasty at the height of this fashion.

I can take this one step farther, too. White is the color traditionally worn by eunuchs. *Ouch!* Persian eunuchs wear... get this: weird white parachute pants. Niiice. Oh, I can just see the lynch mobs now. See, I told this was not good news for Sessho's fangirls (myself include.) But than again, who am I to argue with history? Yeah, right! It's my Sesshy we're talking about here, I can ignore history, and besides, Sesshy's not Persian.

Any ways, what this information tells us is that one way or another this guy refuses to have sex with anyone. At best he's just ignoring you, the mid-line point suggests he's a transvestite and the worst case scenario is ... uhm ... well ... he is a dog.

Though, this certainly goes towards answering the common questions asked about Sessho's weird attitude towards (or rather his lack of interest in) women, in a series where every other male character seems to be fighting over women. It also goes to explain his actions in 167. Which was: naked woman falls from the sky, lands at his feet, basically has thrown herself at him and he's calmly staring up at the clouds or the sun or trees or whatever it is he's looking at, that is in the opposite direction from Kagura on the ground, and than walks off like he never saw her. I'd like to see Miroku do that! Fangirls everywhere were all going:

"Yes! Sessho and Kagura! Finally!" and than they get nothing.

Sessho: "Come on Rin!"

Rin: "Coming Lord Sesshomaru."

Jaken: "Put some cloths on."

Yep. There's the Sesshomaru we all know and love. Sees a naked woman, keeps on walking, doesn't bat an eye. Leaving behind millions of broken hearted fangirls who went off screaming and pulling their hair out after seeing episode 167. LOL! And yet, would we REALLY want him any other way?

Is The Mokomoko Historically Accurate?

Yes, for a Mongolian it would be, uhm... China again.

Of course humans do not have tails, so if you consider the Mokomoko to be a tail, than no it can't possibly historically accurate.

However, not everyone considers it a tail, and if you follow this line of thinking, than yes, it is very very accurate. However, once again we must leave Japan to find the Mokomoko and what it is. For this we must travel to one of three places: Mongolia, Tibet, or Hungary (Romania and Turkey are have seen them as well). These big furry thigs are actually pretty common. Called different names by different cultures, to Europeans and Americans they are usually known as Suba.

What is a suba? In it's simpelest form it is the skin of a long haired sheep which is thrown over your shoulder. Some more elaborate versions are made of several skins sewn together to form a vest, coat, shawl, or cape.

What they are made of, how they are worn, and what they look like varies from tribe to tribe, depending on what the local fur bearing animals there are to hunt, and how cold the region's winters are.

For the SCA, you'd have to call it a suba and not a tail.

Personally, I consider it a tail.

This section got too long and has been moved to here:

  • The Mokomoko
  • Lord Sesshomaru is known for his mokomoko, the weird furry fluffy thing that is draped over his right shoulder. But what is it, and how do you make one for...

What Will I Do?

Well, for my own costume, I'm keeping the overall look from the anime, but being more accurate to the manga, while making changes to make it historically accurate for what would have been worn by a Japanese Lord of the Momoyama Period.

The biggest reason for the change is not so much to be historically accurate, but rather, to be able to wear the costume. If you've read my costume lenses, than you know this is a costume made to the SCA's historical reenactment standards. Meaning that that it's not a costume made of foam and cardboard, but rather leather and metal. Well, let's face it, Sessho's Chinese style armor is made of cast iron and if made anime/manga accurate would weigh a minimum of 75lbs.

Since I don't plan on wearing 75lbs of cast iron, I'm changing Sessho's armor from it's Chinese metal styling to an much lighter and easier to wear Japanese style made of leather. It'll still weigh about 30lbs, but that's a big difference from 75lbs!

His Chinese sash, I'm not changing at all, however, him being Japanese (and yes, I believe him to be Japanese btw, in spite of the references pointing to him living in China), I am calling the Chinese long sash by the equivalent Japanese name "Heko-Obi", even though it is not exactly a Heko-Obi. If he's Japanese, I think he would have called it a Heko-obi regardless of what it's Chinese name is.

Those weird Chinese binding shoes of his are not coming anywhere's near my costume! OUCH! Winkle Pickers look like binding shoes without the pain, so I'm using those instead.

The weird pouffy Mongolian/Portugese pants of his, are being changed to Japanese hakama instead.

As for the Mongolian/Tibetan/Hungarian Suba, well, in my opinion it is actually a tail, so I'm making it with that thought in mind.

The only part of his outfit which started out Japanese in the manga/anime was his kosode (kimono) and it's of a style not seen until the 1800's! Since Rumiko said the story took place in 1558, that is a bit of a problem. I'm improvising. I'm using a pattern taken from an actual kosode from the late 1500's and have cut my fabric using it. Since 1558 was right at the beginning of the Momoyama Period's "bling era" when lords were embroidered head to toe, I'm embroidering by hand every inch of his kosode.

Well, one thing's for certain: this costume is going to keep me busy for the next year or so.
