    BLOGGERGHAST IS LIVE!

    image

    OH MY GOD CLICK HERE FOR THE BLOGGERGHAST, BUT FIRST READ THE STUFF BELOW.

    —-

    Hey y’all!

    Sorry I’ve been gone for so long!  I’ve been sorting out some stuff on how I want to proceed with some new projects.

    You may recall that in earlier posts, I mentioned doing an ongoing web-comic serialization of The Elephant Book (to be collected into regular graphic novels, so you can own the books as well), with some other original features mixed in (including a new online-only series called Dark House, and the occasional Amazing Comic, Every Day Today, Mr. Boxstacker, and all your favorite DeviantArt short comics)!  I’ve been running some numbers and trying to set something up through Patreon, but at the moment, I just don’t have enough backers to my regular princessing blog (Birthdaypartyprincess.tumblr.com) to make doing a regular webcomic a reality right now.  Sitting down and doing an in-depth comic every week, as opposed to short comic strips like a lot of webcomics do, just takes LOADS of time that I don’t have, because I don’t earn enough money to be able to free up enough time in my week to do it!

    So I thought a fun way to raise money for this new comic series would be to add a new blog, called BLOGGERGHAST, which will be a blog containing the daily work records of the Mausoleum of Bizenghast.  Dinah, Vincent, Edaniel and Edrear will all record their routine goings-on, as they do their jobs for the afterlife.  The records are an up-to-date, right-this-moment kind of blog, with the events of The Riddle Road series (currently serializing by ashcan in my Etsy store) having taken place just prior to now.  Special guest recorders like Bali-Lali, and even archived records from Eniri and Elala, will also be featured, as well as anything else the guildsmen feel should be included in the official records…floor plans of various places in the Mausoleum, discoveries of new secret passages, new adventures with new human agents, the ongoing Prank War, flyers, notices and collected human items from the town, etc!  Various story arcs will develop as you follow along with the up-to-date records of what’s going on in the town of Bizenghast right now!  And the best part is that it will be updated EVERY SINGLE DAY, at the same time (7:30 PM, Eastern Standard time).   

    Like my princess blog, it’s TOTALLY FREE to read.  But it’s also a blog that you can support, by donating a dollar or two every month through Patreon.  You can set how much you want to back the blog for (anywhere from 1 dollar a month, to 20 dollars), and your level of donation will give you access to cool backer-only privileges, including being able to ask questions of the guildsmen and correspond with them!  I will keep the blog going continuously, and when we finally reach the monthly goal of Patreon support for it, I can begin the online webcomic series!

    ———————————->Don’t want to wait for your daily dose of Bizenghast?  You don’t have to, because Bloggerghast has ALREADY STARTED.  CLICK HERE! 

    Tune in EVERY NIGHT at 7:30 PM (EST) to see a newly updated record!<——————————————————

    Terrible Day Solution

    Went to the local pet store and asked if I could hold one of the kittens.  “I’m having a really terrible day,” I told the clerk.  She looked me up and down, then took me into the back supply room and brought all the kittens in at once and put them on the floor.

    "Just put them back in the cages when you’re done," she said.

    Best pet store ever.

    YOUR DONATIONS, IN SWAG FORM

    Hey all!

    So the party was SUPER AMAZINGLY AMAZING!  The children of the Eliza Shirley shelter were just the most wonderful, loving kids I’ve ever met, and the volunteers and workers were incredible!  I also worked late into the night to finish my new Cinderella dress, so I’d have a nice, fresh design for the kids, instead of my old, worn-out Cindy costume.  I have SO many things to tell you about it all, but I’ll wait until my boss gets me the pictures and vids she took during the party, so I can do a proper post.

    In the meantime, check out this video I made on Sunday, showing off all the wonderful things that YOUR donations have bought for the kids!  If you think it’s all astounding now, wait til I tell you all about just how utterly bowled over the kids were when they received them!

    By the way, if you donated after Sunday night, your donation will be put towards the second party for the boys, coming up on the 30th!  Any money left over after that will be donated directly to the shelter.  So THANK YOU!!

    (Sorry the vid is very quiet, I don’t know if my mic was messed up or what, so turn it up loud to watch!)

    And as always, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!! You all made a lot of disadvantaged kids SO HAPPY today!

    Time To Do A Good Deed!

    image

    Hey all!

    I wanted to mention something very special and see if we can get your help!  On the 16th of this month (next week), my company will be visiting the Eliza Shirley House in Philadelphia and putting on a charity princess and superhero party for the children!  The Eliza Shirley House is a shelter for single mothers/parents and their children who are homeless or escaping abusive homes, and we want to throw them a really amazing party to lift their spirits!

    Last time we went, we had local businesses donate goodies for gift bags for the children and some parents helped put the bags together. But we’re having trouble getting that stuff together again, so I thought I’d ask if any readers of this blog wanted to donate maybe a dollar or two towards buying some things for the gift bags.  My boss and all the princesses have chipped in what we can, but we’re all pretty tapped out.  We will be donating our time to sorting, bagging and decorating the gift bags for all the children, once we get all the items.

    The children are ages 3-10 and they are VERY excited for the party!  These are children who lack even the most basic necessities…they literally have next to nothing, so previous gift bags have included things like toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, towels, security blankets, small stuffed friends to comfort them, etc. 

    image

    ANYTHING you can donate will be so appreciated by the children, even if it’s just fifty cents or a dollar!  We are still trying to get donations from local businesses to include basic toiletries, but having a little money to get just some dollar store toys would be even better.  For children who have basically the clothes on their back and little else, a colorful toy or stuffed friend means the world and will make them feel safer and more secure at the shelter.

    If you can donate just a little, I would be terribly grateful!  Do something nice to make yourself and others feel good, AND level up your karma!  You’ll be getting MAD achievements for this!

    You can Paypal your donation here, up until the 15th (that’s five days from now!):

    bizenghast(AT)hotmail(DOT)com

    (Sorry, the code for the donate button doesn’t seem to be working, so just use the direct email to send a donation for now!)

    Had an AMAZING time at A-Kon 25 in Dallas this weekend!  Thanks to all the incredible fans who came out to meet me!  I especially loved the Bizenghast cosplayers and the girls with the stuffed Edaniel and Mausoleum cookies! 

    THERE WAS EVEN AN ELEPHANT BOOK COSPLAYER, U GUISE.  IT WAS AWESOME.

    I’ll be doing a full report with pictures in just a bit, so stay tuned!
