I was so excited to hear that the novelization of Labyrinth is being republished, that I decided to share some photos from an awesome afternoon I had a few years ago:

A friend and I were on an Amazon forum discussing the change in paper quality in Tokyopop’s manga, when of the publishers turned up in the forums. I mentioned that I was a big Labyrinth fan and was glad that they were publishing Return to Labyrinth (even if I didn’t enjoy that story all that much). The publisher then sent me a message asking if I wanted to help out with a bit of promotion for the manga by going on a tour of the Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles. It just happened that I was travelling there for a convention and immediately accepted. Above are some photos from our tour that day. I was especially excited to see some of the props from Labyrinth and Dark Crystal in a case in the lobby, including the statue and music box that can be seen in Sarah’s room. Also on display are two of the Skeksis from Dark Crystal which they spent a ton of money to have fully restored. The detail, which you would probably never even see on film is amazing. 

Anyway, that tour was one of the best things I have ever had the chance to do. I also got to meet with the editor that was working on the manga at the time, who was super nice! 

EDIT: since a few people are asking about the tour, to my knowledge tours are given by invite only, but I think they do sometimes have shows there.

Disneyland and Walt Disney World now have guidebooks for guests with cognitive disabilities (such as autism). They include the above charts of what to expect at each attraction (strong smells, loud noises, restraint types used, duration, and more), lists of quiet areas for when you need down time, and answers to frequently asked questions, among other tips.

They are available to download in PDF format: Disneyland | Walt Disney World

If you don’t want to download a PDF (or prefer to click the download link on Disney’s site directly), here are their pages for Services for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities: Disneyland | Walt Disney World

WOW how cool!

This is incredible.

The phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures by Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. Between dream and nightmare, some strange creations born of a symbiosis between organic and mechanical elements, a meeting between fantasy, gothic and steampunk. Some very detailed sculptures in clay on a metal frame.

Guess who?
I’ve been working on a new Toothless pattern off and on for a while. This is my second test head. I like how it came out, so I think this is good to go. Everything is machine sewn and it was a real pain. I plan on having the actual plush finished by the time the movie comes out.

A Whole New World…

(( So this week I decided to try something a little different. :) I saw some beautiful “race-bent” Disney a while ago and wanted to try it out, so here’s some of our ladies. :D (There wasn’t really any rhyme or reason to my choices, I just started fiddling with the images and these happened.) :P I’m going to go back to doing genderbent stuff, but I think I’ll do some of these every once in a while if you guys would like to see more. :) ))
