No Way It's A Coincidence
Monday, December 1, 2008

I found this at the Dollar Tree. There's no way that the font is a coincidence. I think they were trying to target us Browncoats... Hey, wait a minute. It worked, didn't it?

That's creepy.

Either that, or whoever designed the cover is a browncoat. Btw, is the music any good?

Something you'd overhear in a waiting room on one of the Cores, no?

The music's not bad for a dollar. I might actually listen to it on occasion.

I believe that font is called Papyrus, and is fairly common for 'artsy' presentations. I'd not previously noticed it was used for the Serenity movie font.

What COLOURSCHEMER said, Papyrus is a VERY COMMON and FREE font that is often used with romanization of Eastern terminology. It's why it was chosen for SERENITY. Joss wanted everyone to have "access" to it and drive the viral marketing. Serenity is a common theme with the Eastern cultures (another reason Joss chose it for his ship) and I've seen that term with that font on several occasions. I have a plaque on my wall with it and it's Chinese counterpart which was purchased before the movie, so it is coincidence...but yet, it's by design. Joss' design. ;)

Alliance Food Stuffs
I created a 3d printable file of the Alliance food stuffs bar from the pilot episode. It can be downloaded from There is also a two part mold.

Not that anyone doubted my dedication to the fandom...
Just thought I'd share a little conversation I had today. It's not a little thing, gorramit!

Vera Made From MDF and PVC
Can't believe I didn't post this already. This is made from scratch out of MDF and PVC, using mostly a router and a scroll saw. I'll have the whole costume together for Salt Lake Comic Con.

Aim To Misbehave
This is not mine, I found it via

This may be the greatest baby photograph ever taken. Maybe.

Nathan Fillion and Jimmy Stewart
I've seen a few of these floating around, so I decided to do one for two of my favorite actors.

I've recently been introduced to another great sci-fi show, and honestly, there's no reason that these two 'verses couldn't be the same...

Osama Checks In
Couldn't help myself.

Starfest 2011 Firefly Cosplay
I found a few others with Firefly cosplay going on. I'm the one in the Jayne hat. I'm afraid I didn't get names for everyone in the picture, so if you're here, speak up and get credit for the great costumes.

Summer Glau as an Elf
By request - Summer Glau with pointy elf ears and all. The costume and background are from Shaiya (the MMORPG). I know it's not terribly original, but it was quick and easy, and most of all, it was fun.

Jayne Special
This is the Wilco Models Jayne Special (as well as the hat my wife made me - I love that woman!). I used a dry-brush technique to paint the pistol.
