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

  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.

Which point-of-view is better in the horror genre? 


Which point-of-view is better in the horror genre? from writing

>>I'm writing a short story under the theme of acceptance, and I also want to make it a little funny. Anyways, what point-of-view do you think is better when writing horror, and maybe under the theme of acceptance?

As a reader, I prefer 2nd person, but it's rarely used, and when it is used, it's not always done well.

You the reader are the main character and you make the choices that affect the story. (Think Choose Your Own Adventure).

Even though "YOU" are the main character, it is not as intrusive invasive feeling as the way First Person is.

As a writer, I find 2nd person nearly impossible to write. If you are someone who followed me long enough, you know the original version of the Haunted Lighthouse was written in the 2nd person. It also failed miserably because of the POV I wrote it in. Thus why I scrapped the original 2nd person version and rewrote it into a 3rd story instead.

As a writer, I prefer 3rd person, but only 1 POV character (I dislike multiple points of view as a reader.)I like sticking with one character. My reason is because I feel it gets too confusing and convoluted, especially in a sort story. The shorter the story the higher the need for a single character point of view focus, I feel.

As a reader, I also feel it becomes too confused if the story is constantly changing point of view characters.

I don't mind point of view changes, say, if the main character is passed out and a different character takes over as point of view character until the main point of view character wakes up, but at the same time I feel it's better if the story blacks out with the character so the reader sees EXACTLY what the character does.

As both a reader and a writer I deeply dislike 1st person unless it's written in a diary format. I don't mind feeling like I'm reading someones diary, but I super hate feeling like I am the main character.

In the end, I would recommend this: write the point of view you, yourself most prefer to read.

>>Hm Second person would be pretty awkward but very interesting I've never seen it before --well maybe in a movie. I would assume those are the thoughts of the character. Seems complicated, but cool idea.

Goosebumps is written in 2nd person
