1. Swayed by Melissa George's very very sexy appearance on the latest Grey's Anatomy, I've decided to add one more vote to my 'what should I watch' poll (mine, because surely I get a say?) and watched the pilot of Alias. I loved it SO MUCH!
It was absolutely perfect, everything was so well done. All of the characters were likeable. It was incredibly dramatic. Everything looked amazing (why did nobody tell me how awesome Jennifer Garner's lips are sooner?). I didn't see ANY of the plot turns coming. It was occasionally hilarious. And really, I couldn't ask for more. My sole problem with the entire hour-long episode is that it got a little boring for about 2 minutes, two thirds of the way through.

Now... HQ caps, anyone?

2. I found links and watched up to 3x12 of Project Runway, it was so awesome! I need those final two episodes! I also need to make icons of Kayne from the reunion show :P I can't decide if I want Michael or Laura to win. It'll probably be Michael, though.

3. drankmywar did this thing in her journal a few days ago where she had pictures of herself with different haircolours/dos and that was really awesome, so I'm thinking of doing something like that for myself some point in the (near?) future.


a) Photobucket I really like this. I don't love it, but I like it. Lena looked AMAZING in this scene, I just wish I had done more with colours and textures to make it more exciting and unique.

b) Photobucket meh, I'm not a fan. If you can't tell I've manipulated the picture so she's lit differently and I think she looks a bit weird because of it. Also the single tone of pink isn't really interesting to me and the cropping seems off.

c) Photobucket I made this along with a header and I think you can tell, because it doesn't really work as an icon.

d) Photobucket I don't understand how Mr. Dekker can be so sexy, yet at the same time have so few usable caps. Lena as well! It doesn't make any sense! Anyway, I like what I've done with the colours here, but something seems off with it.

e) Photobucket I like what I've done here with the colours and the cropping, but I don't like the cap. I don't really know why I decided to make an icon out of a cap I don't like...

f) Photobucket I like nothing about this.

g) Photobucket Wha? Would you look at that! It's me in icon form! Although, I don't know what it was specifically that I did wrong, but I swear I looked a lot better in the original picture :\

h) Photobucket Why did I make an icon of Madonna? What a very good question and the answer is not because I really like 'Jump' (and I do, by the way), no, it's because likegunfire told me to. This is another case of the "I liked it when I was making it", because now it just looks crazy.

i) Photobucket yay, Standoff :D I love that it looks like Emily's hair is short, because I didn't intend it and I think she looks better with short hair!

j) Photobucket and look, it's Emily with long hair, still looking awesome. I love my cropping and the way her nose looks <3

k) Photobucket hmm... I'm underwhelmed. It was such an awesome cap, but it was annoyingly difficult to work with.

l) Photobucket this is something kind of new from me, which I like. I think maybe it would look better if I had used textures?

m) Photobucket ugh, no thankyou. Why did I resort to such boring boring colours?

I like the light blobs in a, cropping in c and f. h is awesome :)
Is that you in f? good icon, nice cheekbones, haha. :D
I think k would be better if you removed the dark shadow from the right...
I love that scene! "i'm already seduced from before" lol.

:D thankyou!

actually it's Lena Headey in 'f', but I'll assume your finger slipped when you meant to type 'g' and yeah, it is. Ah, the marvels of good lighting :P

c,d,f,j- I love the coloring so much!!! I don't know how you can't like f, the cropping and the glowy-ness are perfect.

I'm so glad you like Alias! I love Jennifer Garner so I'm a little biased to anything she's in, but the plot is great and pretty fast paced and the show is so pretty.

Oh I get my caps from http://www.spy-caps.com/gallery/ and http://www.alias-media.com/

Jennifer Garner is like a dream, I can't believe I didn't notice sooner.

I adore c. No really. I dont know why you think it doesn't work as an icon, it does :). I also happen to like f. Just me being me.

and woah, I've never seen someone make an icon of themselves. I feel like a voyeur now lol. Nice to put a face to the iconmaker :)

it's interesting. I've recieved nothing but postitive feedback from c and f, but I don't care for them at all :\

voyeur, what? *googles* LOL! Ah, I'm just following in drankmywar's footsteps :P
