New Friends!

Hello and Good morning/afternoon/evening to everyone who befriended me at the usxuk community! Here is a little more about me and what I do if you didn't spot me on the friending meme:
Name/Nickname: Helen/ubermidget

Age: 28 (I think Blink 182's "What's my age again?" song applies here, lol!)

Location: Manchester, United Kingdom

Favorite Hetalia characters: UK, USA, Canada, Greece, Denmark, Prussia, Italy

So, what's your favorite thing about America/England?: They bicker but they fit together so well!

What non-Hetalia fandoms are you into?: I'm mainly into the Hetalia and The Legend of Zelda fandoms, but I also like the following: Full Metal Alchemist (Ed, Al, Winry, Roy, Riza - oh heck, most of the characters!) Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, a little Yugioh (first and second series), Bleach, a little Soul Eater, a little Gundam Wing, a little Street Fighter, Sonic the Hedgehog (Classic), Kingdom Hearts (got into that late last year), a little of Pokemon, a little of Harry Potter, Sherlock, Dr Who, My Little Ponies (I've been a fan since I received my first Cherries Jubilee plushie pony when I was 5. The Friendship is Magic series is adorable and hilarious to me!), Thundercats (old series), Disney films, a little from the Marvel comics universe (mainly the animated cartoons and films) and a lot more than what I've mentioned here - feel free to ask me!

What do you post about in your journal?: Mostly fan-art I've drawn, crafts I've made and a little life in general.

What are you looking for in an LJ-friend?: (this can include anything from 'someone who'll comment' to 'someone to RP with' etc.) Someone who will comment and I can talk to about our favourite fandoms, things we like and a little life in general.

Anything else?: I'm a free-lance illustrator, animator and plush-doll maker. When I'm not working on commissions, I like to make fan-art and fan plush dolls, like the two lovelies below (Pirate UK and Captain America Jones from cosmic-dare's "You Can't take the Sky from Me" fan-fic). Photos and updates about them sometimes appear in my journal, they're all jokingly a part of my house's family life and I take one or two of them with me to conventions in the UK! Other dolls I've made include Link and Britannia Angel.



I any of you are on Tumblr, you can find me there too: http://ubermidget.tumblr.com/. I usually put up my works in progress, the odd photograph and reblog quirky blogs/images of note. I'll be happy to follow you too if you're there.

I'm tired now, must go to bed - I've been drawing all night and need sleep! XD

January is over in less than two weeks, this year is flying by already!  Soon it will be CON SEASON again for me! And hopefully for the other artists I bump into at the cons - hello out there and I hope I get to see you all soon! And a huge hello to all the friends I've made at the cons too! :D Anyone going to London Anime Con in February?  I'll be there with my friend and fellow artist Donna M Evans. We'll be selling our artwork there (prints, keyrings, bookmarks, hand-made fabric mochis, pillows) and taking drawing commissions.  Come find us if you can!  Looking forward to seeing the other artists and musicians like Masa-kun, Zonic, Megabyte and Area 11, good stuff!
In the mean time, I'm busier than a busy little bee busy humming!  I'm making animations for my Godbrother, working on a plush doll commission of "Pharoah Atem" from "Yugioh" (the fabric for his skin has arrived, it feels and looks gorgeous! This plushie is going to be so cuddly!), making fabric mochis (I've been asked to make a Romano to send out to the US - you know who you are love, I'm on the job!), pillows, re-prints of prints (good god, HOW MANY?! Yes, that's how many - too many to count!) and some keyrings.  And in the middle of all that, I'm making new drawings for prints too, like this one:


I also want to make a parody chibi picture of all the Hetalia Cardverse kingdoms (Hearts, Clubs, Spades and Diamonds) with poker terminolgy used as puns! It's like my brain is coming up with more ideas than my body can realise, I'd love to have some minions to do all the work for me! XD

I'm a fan of the BBC television series of Sherlock now.  I'm loving the modern take on the Sherlock Holmes stories, especially that Watson has a blog!  The camaraderie between Sherlock and Watson has me in stitches  e.g. Sherlock is invited to Buckingham Palace, he goes there in a bed-sheet wrapped around him like a kimono.  He's waiting on a seat in a room.  Watson joins him a few minutes later.  They are silent for about 20 - 30 seconds.  Then Watson asks Sherlock: "Are you wearing anything under that?".  Sherlock replies "No"!  The last episode was gripping, but I do believe it's not the end, I heard series 3 will be out next year? Someone correct me if I'm wrong please! I'm tempted to do fan-art of this series, should I do it?
I've been seeing lots of articles and petitions to stop SOPA and PIPA, is the debate still going on? Are those bills going to go through?  I've been too busy to notice and I live in the UK, nothing like that has been passed as law here to my knowledge!

I have a tumblr account and a facebook artist page, feel free to befriend me there! http://ubermidget.tumblr.com/ and  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ubermidget/166376810067359
 hum, back to work...
