Hello boys and girls.

Right now I’m sitting in the middle of a creative chaos. It’s usually a term used to describe my mess of a room in a nice way. But this time it’s really more fitting than usual. Do you know how to make a studio in your own home? Well, if you don’t have the fancy money to get you a “real, professional” studio? Well, it’s simple, you improvise a whole lot, use what you have, grab a few lamps, lights and bedsheets, and there you go. Your own makeshift, craptastic, awesome home studio!

Lucky enough for me, I’ve got a whole lot of old stuff, both for LARP and for old plays I’ve been in, so building a set that Jessica and I could agree on wasn’t all that hard.

I wont be chattering about it all that long, I’ll just go ahead and show you some results!

This is a few of the things we used for mood and ambience!

My friend and model, Jessica, in a cape I bought a long time ago in Tunisia, I think. Yes, I hoard things.

We brainstormed when she arrived at 9 am and woke me up, we figured we'd use what I already had at home and settle for a sort of fantasy feel, and in the end we went for this; A lady, hoarding shiny things and keeping feathers in her hair, so a birdlady, of sorts.

I had feathers and eyelashes at home as well. YES, I HOARD THINGS.

Well, I wont shove all of it in your faces, but you’ve got a bit of a peek at what we were doing at least.

Right, have a nice evening everybody!

There and back again, without hobbits.

Hello everybody, I’m on a bus at the moment, on my way home. The flight went well, and I’ve been waiting for a little more than three hours to be on this ride. And the seats are really comfy.

My month-long stay in Belgium has come to an end, what I haven’t mentioned so far about it is that I saw a begging dog, a ballait called “En Atendant“, in a very fine theatre. I took some pictures with my cellphone, maybe I can show you once I get home, apparently it’s the same room where the belgian revolution started.

This picture is from the ballait, found it on the site linked above.

I’ve never been to a ballait before, it was interesting but I didn’t really understand too much, it’s not all that easy to get what a ballait is all about, if you ask me. I kept looking for patterns, since it was dancing and all, and there were some, but it just was never complete, which kinda made a little sense when I heard that en atendant meant “meanwhile” or “in wait”.

Anyhow, I’ll get some pictures of a little of everything from my phone when I get home. Now I’m just going to sit back and enjoy the ride.
