This post used to feature a photo of me cosplaying as my zombie werewolf character Breynz, but tumblr removed it. Why? The photo is copyrighted to me, posted with my permission, and sourced to my FA gallery, so I can only guess tumblr’s staff found it to violate this rule:
Gore and Mutilation Content. Don’t post gore just to be shocking. Don’t showcase the mutilation or torture of human beings, animals, or their remains.
This is the removed image:
It’s a photo of me wearing a mask in a hotel during the 2011 London Comic Con. The mask is 100% resin, cast from a hand-sculpted modelling clay mould, and the fur is faux acrylic NFT. No actual animal remains were used in any way in the making of this costume; its amazing realism is entirely attributable to the superb skills of its creator, Qarrezel, from whom I commissioned it, and it was posted to fuckyeahfursuiting, a blog showcasing animal costumes, not to shock but to promote Qarrezel’s costume-building company, Clockwork Creature Studio, and the costume’s owner, myself.
Is this the new tumblr under Yahoo, deleting photos of Halloween/cosplay masks without reason or warning because they might scare a five-year-old? Breynz is not even all that scary; most people meeting him at conventions tell me he’s a cute character once they get used to his looks. I am very disappointed.
So uuggnnnn these avians were absolutely amazing and I wanted to take them all home with me
especially dat Raven nngggg <3. I know the Blue Phoenix type is manojalpa but I am unsure of the others, tell me and I’ll happily credit you!
Some gorgeous birds in the fursuit tag! I see some familiar faces. :)
FOR SALE SOON
You guys remember that meme that went absolutely viral last year? Well… I don’t really wear this guy much, (Aka at all. Only the once last Halloween.)
I figured someone else could have some fun with him this season. I am going to auction the mask off, as well as the pair of gloves to go with it. I think I will use some epoxie to make the claws just a little bit bigger.
The gloves themselves are large. They hardly fit my tiny lady hands, so let me know if there’s any interest in that area.
I’ll prep him for the auction which will go live in late September, and end October 1st. That way, the new owner has time to make any adjustments if needed.
Any questions or concerns, send me a message here, or note me on my DA (un-do.deviantart.com).
As the owner of a monster ‘suit myself, let me just tell you that you get a lot of attention wearing something like this! If you want to impress people at conventions, and if you want to own a mask created in the Clockwork Creature workshop, here’s your chance!
also great non-homestuck cosplays i took pictures of! there were so many great ones i didn’t get to photograph aah what a weekend
Picture #4 is me as my character Ngala. Thank you for sharing the photo! :)
A beautifully ephemeral portrait of Ngala @ Desucon 8, 2013. The photo was taken during a rainstorm using natural lighting only for a soft, uncoloured effect; dream-like and serene.
Ngala was made on commission by Clockwork Creature and is owned/worn by me, Tarangryph.

Met the Scout, the Engineer, and the Sniper from Team Fortress 2 at Desucon 8 this weekend. Really nice people, let me borrow their Balloonicorn for a few photos. I also played around with a Pyro and spotted a Spy, I think? I’m sad I didn’t get any photos with them or a chance to chat with them out of costume since I can’t hold a camera in my hooves and don’t speak as Ngala. They all had fantastic cosplays!
I’m actually surprised how often I run into Team Fortress 2 cosplayers at anime conventions; the fandom doesn’t seem as big as other non-anime fandoms like Homestuck or MLP, but maybe it’s big for a FPS? In my experience, the Team Fortress 2 people are among the nicest cosplayers out there (perhaps because they’re also slightly ‘out of place’ at these types of conventions). They’re always happy to let me borrow their props and interact with me, and they don’t seem to mind the animal-hybrid thing.
(There are few convention experiences more annoying (or ironic) to me than people in store-bought Pokemon kigurumis yelling ‘ew furries!’ when I walk past, which happened right after I had these photos taken. Ew yourself. >_>)
Furry meets Homestuck. They’re nice people! Maybe it’s the horns?
