Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter!

Today we celebrate the 148th birthday of the famous children’s author, Beatrix Potter, who is mainly known for writing The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Here at the University of Iowa, we are fortunate enough to have a copy of one of the first printings of this charming tale, which according to our acquisition papers, was previously owned by Potter’s niece!

This particular book was printed in a grouping of 250, and is widely believed to have been done so in 1901. However, the acquisition papers accompanying this copy state that the author’s records say it was privately printed in 1900, and later issued in 1901. This copy is also interesting as it contains the later omitted pages showing how Peter Rabbit’s father met his demise by way of pie.

Here are just a few pictures of my Shepherd’s Journal from Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire. I am a huge Atlantis fan and it is my dream to have made this journal for my future Kida cosplay for AX14. I made this entire book from scratch, from the hardcover spine to the designed pages. 

You can view tons of my photos of The Shepherd’s Journal, including progress photos and the inside pages at my cosplay page HERE!I would really appreciate it if you liked my page and support my cosplay!~

If you have any questions please just let me know on my tumblr. I am more than happy to apply knowledge with this process.

I love Harry’s face. Everyone else just kind of looks down, all serious, but Harry’s like “The fuck kind of school is this?!?”

Thought I’d highlight the lovely, subtle lens flare that shows up when you look towards the sunset in Twilight Town.

One day, a talented lass or fellow, a special one with face of yellow, will make the Piece of Resistance found from its hidden refuge underground. And with a noble army at the helm, this Master Builder will thwart the Kragle and save the realm, and be the greatest, most interesting, most important person of all times. All this is true, because it rhymes.
