unusually geeky, honest and titled blog post. With regency portrait.

I drew this yesterday, it's Jenna Gregg as the Lady Alicia, her character from the LARP system Masquerades & Massacres

I've previously done Role-play portraits I haven't shared, though I may in the future, but I wanted to share this one as I'm particularly fond of the drawing, and also as systems go, this one looks like THE MOST FUN EVER. 

What does it say about me that I have no interest in the idea of dressing up and pretending to hit people with swords in a field, until it at the same time involves pretending to be in a Jane Austen Novel! Or more accurately, a Susanna Clarke Novel, as the mythology of her books is specifically an influence on this system. Reading about it has prompted me to go ahead and download Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell to reread, even though I have the brick like tome already at my parents' house (where sadly due to limited London Shelf Space, most of my books and comics live) (not sure why I capitalised that, now it needs to be an acronym) (LSS) (I'm a bit delirious).

I may go the whole hog and re-read Folk of the Air as well. Or even do some Live Action Role Play. That's unlikely. I am afraid of doing it because of my complex issues with my own exhibitionism.

Which is also why I keep apologising to my friends who came to my Karaoke Birthday Party (KBP)

(Which was SO fun)
