Island Time

You might say that I'm really slow in just getting Kestrel to the Floating Land when it's been out for .... um.... a really long time! I'd rather say that Kestrel just likes to run on island time.

It's actually really nice to be working in this sunny part of Celestia while it is all dark and wet and wintry outside. Ahhhh I just need some surf tunes....

Um. Now all I need is a tropical drink with a little umbrella!


What? No help here?

The Street Style Project

Have you ever heard of "Street Style" or "Street Fashion"? It's a style of fashion blogging and general observation where people take pictures of the fashion of everyday people who catch the eye. I don't know about you but the "street style" of video games intrigues me. I find it very interesting when someone puts two pieces together that aren't intuitive, or puts colors together that are unusual. Whenever I see a person with an outfit I really like or think is really creative, I snap a screenshot of it. I have a collection of over 100 screenshots of interesting and remarkable outfits. It's about time I share them with you.

You can find a huge slideshow of my collection on the new Street Style page here. And starting today, I will feature a weekly snapshot, so as to go into a little more detail.

This week...

Blame it on the Decongestants

That's right I have a intense head cold. I think it's starting to make me rather silly.

Behold the Uggs of the spiral.
I seriously thought about getting everyone Uggs--I mean Santa boots for Holiday gifts, but fortunately my friend talked me out of it.

 I have been working on my winter house Hogmanay Hall.
I have been crafting a few things...
I would give you more of a view, but since Wizard101 is down right now, extrapolate from this picture!
 I also went to Luke' s party. By the by, really nice inside Luke.
Where long PvPing ensued. 
Contrary to Fallon's belief, I have not been practicing with TPC without her knowledge.
I have however, been doing some ranked 1v1, I actually got to Veteran. Which is a big deal for me.
And I have been playing some team stuff in the practice arena, but more on that later.
So for now I shall say Happy Holidays! I didn't get you Uggs.

Mirror Mirror

So today I was bored. Really bored. So bored that I decided to finish Zafaria.
That's sayin' something!
So I run around the Elephant Graveyard and fight some people, then I talk to some animals and BAM! I'm off to Mirror Lake.
Well that was quick.
So I decide to take a peek into the instance, and size it up. Just me and my friend's wizard.
We hop on the sigils and start working our way through the instance.
We fought bosses. Then we fought some more bosses. Long story short, we fought a lot of bosses.
I kept wondering when the epic Morganthe show-down was going to happen, and thinking we'd probably die in that fight if not before.
Then we fought some spider bosses.
Then we got loot.

We finished it. Me and my friend Elijah (who is fire). Just us.
I was all: O_o

Okay apparently Mirror Lake isn't that hard.
It took us a while, but I think that was mostly because we had no clue as to what was coming next.
I wonder what world we'll see next?

I think most of you know by now. The Professor, is a blatant Doctor Who spoof.
But what you might not know is that they aren't just spoofing one doctor but a good handful of them.
Long striped scarf -- clearly Tom Baker's (the fourth doctor)
Tennis shoes -- could refer to David Tennant (ten) or Peter Davison (five) as the both wore tennis shoes
Bow tie -- while plenty of Doctors have worn the tie, it's safe to say Matt Smith (eleven) made it an icon

I thought to myself: "Cool. They picked some icons, slapped them on a dog, and called it good. Groovy."
But then I was passing by this morning and saw this.
A leaf! 
And you know what that means.
It means celery.
Snack anyone?
Peri : "Doctor, why do you wear a stick of celery in your lapel?"
The Doctor : "Does it offend you?"
Peri : "No, just curious."
The Doctor : "Safety precaution. I'm allergic to certain gases in the praxis range of the spectrum."
Peri : "Well how does the celery help?"
The Doctor : "If the gas is present, the celery turns purple."
Peri : "And then what do you do?"
The Doctor : "I eat the celery. If nothing else I'm sure it's good for my teeth."
-- "The Caves of Androzani"

Peter Davison (the fifth doctor) my personal favorite classic doctor has been payed homage to.
I am happy.

Home for the Holidays

After much bustle and hubbub, I've finally been able to get in some playing time for Wizard101.

Zafaria! I haven't finished it yet, but I have gotten up to level 70 and tried out my new spell Basilisk. Very cool. But I don't have a great understanding of DoTs yet so it'll take me a while to figure out how to use it effectively.

I've also been working on finishing up some houses I've been working on... Hopefully you'll get to see them really soon. And also I have more fun surprises coming up in the near future too! Stay tuned!

That's it for the status update. I hope you all are having a wonderful break, and I wish everyone luck on their finals!
