Supanova Report

So last weekend I went to the Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Brisbane, after Dan Feuerriegel listed himself as a last-minute guest. Ergo, technically, all I need known about the weekend is that this happened:

(I'm not looking straight at the camera because he was holding my phone and I was staring at his hands. He has ridiculously beautiful hands. They are distracting, ok?? Also ridiculous: his shoulders. LOOK AT THEM THEY ARE A MILE WIDE.)

Con successful, report closed!

However, a lot of cool shit happened and I do want to get some of the details down because otherwise they'll fade far too quickly. So without further ado, rambly details under the cut!

Cosplay and actors and writers, oh my. )

Icons, icons, icons (Robin Hobb, Elisabeth, Lucifer, and assorted others)

The lovely [info]spaghettitoes has organised this icon challenge for all the shiny new fandoms flying around the Igloo. I picked Robin Hobb because apparently I love to make my life difficult, lol.

Christine, I TRIED to match your categories but there were some that just really don't work for this fandom (and also my brain fails at this specific organisation thing), so this was more of a "make icons first, approximate categories later, skip the rest" approach, I'm afraid. But I made you priest icons and went cosplaying for you, so you can't tut at me ;)

PLEASE NOTE: Obviously since Robin Hobb's works are not exactly picture books, I had to find material elsewhere. I have two primary sources: 1) cover artist John Howe's paintings; 2) a selection of fantastic fanart from DeviantArt that their creators have given me their generous permission to use. If you take any of these icons, PLEASE credit these artists for their work. The relevant info plus links to DeviantArt galleries (with lots of more gorgeous stuff) is beneath the respective icon panels. I think crediting John Howe is probably optional since he already has ALL the fame and money ;) (here is his portfolio, though) but please do credit the fanart creators where indicated.

Robin Hobb's books (Farseers, Liveship Traders, Tawny Man and Rain Wilds Chronicles trilogies, plus a couple of Windsingers ones)
Elisabeth the musical
Elisabeth the historical figure
And some miscellaneous things.

Okay! Categories!

We'll all ignore the fact that I am legitimately terrible at iconing, okay? Awesome. )

Poking at podfic: Share (Deniz/Roman/Marc)

Okay, I finally got myself a semi-decent mic so I could experiment with podfic. "EXPERIMENT" BEING THE OPERATIVE WORD HERE, LOL.

So here's a first attempt - I'm still not entirely happy with how much breathing and mic noise there is but eh, I'm just trying things out. I welcome, and in fact encourage/solicit/beg for concrit, especially regarding reading speed, breathing advice, length of pauses, can one follow it, etc. (I tried to find [info]paraka's excellent podfic tutorial that I *thought* was on [info]eskimo_kiss but I guess it must be on [info]no7_awz and I failed at unearthing it, so I pretty much just played it by ear.)

A couple of notes:

1. I deliberately picked something with little to no dialogue because I don't think I can do AWZ voices. Especially considering they're supposed to be in German really, lol. It just messes my head up.

2. In a similar vein, I tend to pronounce the names the German way, even though it kinda messes with the reading flow because I have to shift my voice apparatus mid-sentence, which often results in awkward pauses. But I can't really bring myself to say "Roman" the English way, it just sounds silly to me *facepalms*

Alright, here goes!
