Batgirl!

Above is my entry for Project: Rooftop’s recent “Batgirl Begins Again” costume redesign contest, celebrating the sites eight-year anniversary.

Today they announced their “Top 3 Entries” for the contest, and I’m happy to say I find myself as one of them. Paired with two stellar designs by the incredible Chris Samnee and Elizabeth Beals, I’m pleased as punch.

Please do click on through to their site to see all three designs as well as scoring and comments from the P:R panel of judges.

Speaking of which, I tried to address their very valid point about Barbara’s cape, doing a quick fix where I extended the fabric up over her shoulder and neck, adding a zipper, so it’d be less likely to fall off.

Brett White (of Matt and Brett Love Comics) said “this is a design that I could easily see on a dozen+ cosplayers…” and I so hope he’s right! That’d be awesome.

Let me know if you do!

Allow me to introduce you to the Red-eyed Crocodile Skink. 
Since these guys were recently discovered (mid to late nineties), there isn’t a whole lot that is known about them, but I’ll share a few facts with you here. 

  • These guys can grow up to ten inches in length, though the average is more like seven.
  • They’re pretty shy and choose to play dead as their defense mechanism. 
  • Other than geckos, these guys are one of the only lizards that vocalize. Their sound is described as a barking noise when they’re in distress
  • Average lifespan is listed at around 6 years

Endemic to Grand Cayman, the Grand Cayman blue iguana, Cyclura nubila lewisi, is one of the most endangered lizards on Earth. Its decline likely began in pre-Colombian times when it was hunted for food by native Indians of the Arawak and Lucayan tribes. Today, habitat loss is the main factor threatening extinction.
