Crafty Monday: RNGG Contest Entry

Robot, Ninja & Gay Guy MPAA Title Card

So this week I've been relaxing (see: lazy), and one of the things I wanted to accomplish was making my entry for the Robot, Ninja, and Gay Guy video contest. RNGG is a really funny series on youtube, and I think the actors and creators are doing a great job. So last week when a contest was announced, I knew I wanted to participate in it. The object of the contest was to create a video of some sort that used the episodes of RNGG in some way. I knew what I wanted to do within 5 seconds: use the audio from the Twilight trailer with video from the show.

I'm a Twilight fan (the books, not the movies), so I'd only seen the trailer once before. After working on this video, I never ever have to see it again because I know it by heart. About 7 or so hours of work went into making this, and I'm still not 100% pleased (I don't know why, but some of the clips weren't widescreen? It bugs me, but there's no way I'm going to go through and fix them now). It turned out pretty neat anyway, so please watch and enjoy! :D

Talk to me Tuesday: Queen of Dorks

I will have the photos of my Phat Quarter swap piece up on flickr once my partner receives it (which should be Thursday if I can trust the post office). If you want to make a hat like I made, I used this handy tutorial, except I'm super lazy and didn't bother with a brad or punching a hold in it. I used packing tape and tacky glue (the things that were less than 5 inches from my hands).
