ATTENTION COSPLAYERSSee this shit? This shit is about to change your life.This packet of stuff is called Instamorph Moldable Plastic. You literally buy a packet of this shit, and you can make any-fucking-thing.
You open it up, and you get little plastic pellets that look like this.
Doesn’t look like much, right?
WRONG.
When put in hot water (140°F, 60°C.), these pellets melt into a kind of putty-like stuff, that you can mold into whatever shape you want.They make the coolest cosplay accessories EVER because they’re plastic - they’re moderately lightweight, they’ll survive being dropped and banged around, and they’re waterproof. I made Nepeta horns and Meenah bracelets for my homestuck cosplays, but it can do a ton of other stuff too.

Also, the whole project takes maybe a half hour - 10 minutes to boil the water, 2 for the pellets to melt in the bowl (it leaves no residue, so you can use a regular mixing bowl and a spoon to pull it out of the water), a few minutes to sculpt and then a few minutes for it to dry into a completely solid, plastic whatever-you’re-making.
AND THE BEST PART OF THIS IS THAT THIS SHIT IS SO CHEAP
YOU’D EXPECT IT TO BE REALLY EXPENSIVE BUT IT’S NOT
I got a container on Amazon.com for $10, but here’s the actual site so you can check it out some more. http://www.instamorph.com/
SERIOUSLY THOUGH DON’T GO TO ALL THE TROUBLE OF FINDING CREATIVE AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO MIX MATERIALS, THIS IS REALLY GREAT.

I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND THIS POST HOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS NEEDS MORE NOTES RIGHT NOW

ref for all my cosplaying followers!

and for UK cosplayers Fred Aldous do a very similar product that works in the same way and gives great results!

WANTED: 50, 000 Interested Readers

Hi there. My name is Vivid, otherwise known by my pen name, L. Holland. Don’t be surprised that you haven’t heard of me: I’m not a published author. But you can help with that, just by reading this.

Early this year I did some inquiries regarding book publishing. I was in the early planning stages of my first novel, and wanted to know how to go about getting my work published once I was finished writing and self-editing. The woman I spoke to told me all about my options: agents, self-publishing, or just sending out my manuscript to every publishing house possible. All of it I had heard before.

However, then she told me what I’m going to talk about right now:

If you can prove that you have a readership of at least 50, 000, it could work as a great foot in the door for you with most agents/publishing houses.

At the time 50, 000 seemed like a huge, unreachable number. However, now that I think about it, it can’t be that unattainable.

So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to list some of things that feature in my novel, and if they sound at all like the kind of shit you’re into, reblog this post. These include:

  • an asexual, non-gendered protagonist
  • and the story doesn’t center around their being asexual/non-gendered— it’s about them having an epic adventure
  • the story isn’t about romance— it’s mostly about friendship
  • people with cool, horrifying and crazy-ass powers + lots of fight scenes
  • not just teenagers saving the day: also young adults, adults and older folks
  • cats, LOTS and LOTS of CATS. Why? You’ll have to wait to find out.
  • includes individuals of all ages, races, body types, genders, and sexualities
  • also bad-asses of all ages, races, body types, genders and sexualities!
  • Eldritch Abominations/Monsters — do you like teeth and tentacles? Then this is definitely for you!
  • ACTION, and also quite a bit of gore. Blood, guts and bones? You betcha.
  • (I have also been informed there is much “shipping fun” to be had?)

Also, I aim to address the issues that I outlined in this post. Plus many more.

These days YA books seem to be all about romance, and the importance of being in a relationship. While this is fine, I know that I’m certainly not the only person who is bored with this. I want to be one of the many authors who are seeking to change that. If you would like to help me with my writing, simply reblog this post and share it with your friends/followers. If I can reach 50, 000 I will have a shred of proof that this is something that people want.

Are you an aspiring author who is writing/wants to write a story that breaks away from today’s convention? Then send me a message! Let’s network and get our shit published.

Also, while I’m at it, I am in the market for an artist. If you have magical art skills, are looking for a big project, and any of this sounds right up your alley, send me a message and let’s have a chat.

To sum up, if anything I just mentioned sounds like something you would enjoy reading, reblog this post. You’d be doing me a huge favor. Thank you!

Dear RealHusband, I would like to do this to our front path. Please stop giving me the “You are very cute and kind of bonkers” look.

Check out this awesome starry driveway! The beautiful stellar effect was achieved by mixing glow stones with gravel. You might have already encountered glow stones, which are often used in aquariums. They’re a synthetic aggregate of photoluminescent pigment and synthetic resin.

According to Jinan Chenghao Technology, “When exposed to light sources, the photoluminescent pigment within Glowstone becomes chemically excited and will afterglow (i.e. glow in the dark).” The glow is initially very strong, but then slowly dulls over night.

We’d love to see all of the driveways and sidewalks in our neighbourhood covertly decorated like this. We could go out each night for a star walk. And during the day passersby would be none the wiser.
