GIVEAWAY | Win a Signed Art Print

I am so excited to be introducing my very first giveaway on The Pixel Party! This giveaway comes from my now no longer existing Etsy Shop, “PeeDeeEff,” where I would sell pop-culture related prints. I took the store down because it was difficult to keep up with demand without my own printer. Maybe I will revisit that endeavor in the future. In the mean time, if you just so happen to be interested in buying any of my artwork, you can see what I have for sale on my Society6 shop.

But enough about that, let’s get to the giveaway! For this giveaway, there will be not one, but TWO winners! Woooo! I will be randomly giving away either 1 signed copy of my Emperor’s New Groove Print, or the Minimalist Venture Bros Awesome Ladies set, also signed! Enter Below!

I will be announcing the 2 winners on Wednesday, July 9! Be sure to come back every day to re-enter!

Phoenix Comicon Cosplay: Day 3 – 4

Alright guys, here is the last two days of Phoenix Comicon’s Cosplay Roundup! I went ahead and combined the last two days, since Sunday had a lot less cosplayers than Saturday did.

Phoenix Comicon Cosplay: Day 2

Day 2! There were so many people at the convention, but with that came so many amazing cosplays as well! Here is the bundle of people that I spotted. Sorry about the quality of the photos on some of these. It’s hard to stalk/photograph/not block people during these conventions!

* I’d like to note, if you see yourself in this or any of my posts, and you do not wish to have your photo shown, please send me an email, and I will absolutely take it down right away!

As usual, let me know what your favorites from Day 2 are! I am obsessed with Red Skull and the ENTIRE payload scene from TF2. Also, the corgi. Duh.

Fox 10 Phoenix: What to Wear to Comicon

You guys, I have made it to the big time. My blog and I landed a 3 minute segment on Fox 10 news here in Phoenix, AZ to talk about what to wear to Comicon if you are not going to cosplay. It was amazing and thrilling and nerve-wracking and one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Check out the clip here:

Like I said, THRILLING. It definitely helped give me a bit more confidence throughout the weekend to talk to people about the blog and to grab their photos.

My three models were amazing as well. Janelle, Esmeralda and Sofija all really pulled through for me at the last minute (and at the crack of dawn), and they KILLED it. Actually, Esmeralda and Janelle have modeled for The Pixel Party before, so it was so fun getting to share this experience with them.

Oh! Here’s one of me getting all wired up. SO OFFICIAl:

Comicon Style: What to Wear

Ahh, it’s that time of year again- Convention season! And over here in hot as balls sunny Phoenix, Comicon starts TOMORROW! I have been frantically putting together my “CONquest” – which I realized I have filled my ENTIRE weekend and I am only in the “Cs” on the alphabetical list of activities. I should probably be a tad more picky. I have also been trying to figure out what to wear. An age old problem that gets me every year. While I normally fawn over cosplayers, it’s not something I really do myself, but I do like to express my geeky side with t-shirts that have obscure references and subtle accessories. I DO WHAT I WANT.

Anyways, before the big day, I wanted to put up a few ensembles that you could try this convention season. By the way, I’m not sure if, “convention season fashion” is a thing, but I’m using that term anyways. Why should “festival season fashion” be a thing, and not “convention season fashion,” hmm?

Let’s start with Wonder Woman. A classic, and a comic book character. We’re getting back to the roots!

Convention Style: Wonder Woman

1. Radiant Patriot Tank 2. Cut Out Arrow Cuff Bracelet 3. Wonder Woman Ring 4. Bazaar Headwrap 5. Blue Skater Skirt 6. Set It Straightforward Sandal

I’m not done yet! I’m on FIRE!

Francis the Ladybug Eye-Makeup Tutorial

I’ve been really into animated films lately, and among the ones I’ve had on my list to rewatch is A Bug’s Life. One of my favorite characters in the movie is Francis, the male lady bug! His opening scene is just the best (“Who you callin’ lady?!”). I thought it would be fun to do an eye-makeup tutorial that is inspired by this hilarious character.

So, I called my friend Amanda over, and she helped me create this adorable and easy look!

Francis the Ladybug Makeup Tutorial

1) Add primer to your eyelid. I used Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion. This is so you have a good canvas to work on. There will be a few layers of colors and dots, so you have to make sure you start off right!

Adjustment

desk

When I first created this blog, I wanted it to be a place where I can share all aspects of my life. Lately, my life has been going through quite a few adjustments (for lack of a better word), and I have yet to actually share them here.

This last month or so, I have found myself really soul-searching. Some drastic things had happened in my life, and I found myself in a position to be a full-time freelancer and blogger. I’ve been embracing this new venture, but it doesn’t come without a serious amount of stress. This is the first time in my life that I have been without a full-time 9-5 gig, and it’s weird.
