Wind Waker Mirror Shield backpack
Whew! Finally finished!
This was a commission for my good friend Ubermidget as she wanted a backpack too when we hit America :)
Link’s Mirror Shield from Wind Waker is one of her favourite designs, so I thought I would pull out all the stops and have a crack at it!
Despite its rather complicated shape, it came out quite well!
The size is reasonable too, a little smaller than my gigantic Hylian Shield, but slightly bigger than Majora’s Mask.
I thought I hated Oceania by Smashing Pumpkins, but today I realized its actually pretty awesome. SP always does this to me. I listen to a record, hate it, listen to it months later and realize its actually really awesome and I was stupid for hating on it so bad. >.> This is actually the basis of them becoming my favorite band. I’ve done this with like every album so far except Machina and Siamese Dream. I feel dumb for not seeing them back in October now. I’ll have to see them next opportunity I get regardless of how I feel about them at that period of time.
This is my beautiful sleeve dedicated to the movie The Labyrinth. It took just over two and a half years to complete at about 44 hours total.

I feel like a failure in every aspect of my life. Recently, I’ve been sleeping restlessly, waking from dreams I can’t remember, and tonight I can’t seem to get to sleep at all. I don’t know who to turn to anymore. Anyone I talk to, I feel like I never manage to stress the full extent of my troubles too, or I care too much not to tell them, or I know there’s no way they truly care to listen.
As I write, I realize there’s probably people who have this same relationship with me. This demonstrates another one of my failings. I wish I could help someone else whose going through this type of shit, so they could help me too.
I wish I listened better. I’m trying to be better. Well, I’m awake now for whoever out there is as well.
