According to an email tumblr sent us today, zhobot’s tumblr is three years old! We started zhobot.net in 2010 and it’s tumblr came a little while after that. We’re glad we started it because we’ve met a lot of amazing people on here and have had a lot of fun!
Whether you found us through Dance Central, Saints Row, BioShock, The Walking Dead, Morning Glories, Professor Layton, Star Wars, something else — WHATEVER you found us through, thank you all for sticking with us these three years - especially through all the stuff like the above! :D
Daryl Dixon & Carol Peletier // The Walking Dead
We’re ridiculously excited for the season premiere of The Walking Dead this Sunday so a couple weekends ago we went out to a nearby abandoned prison and took some TWD photos! Denis joined us as Glenn and Roger was super awesome and worked the camera. You can read about the adventure and see more photos at the post over on the blog!
Are you excited for the season premiere too? We here at Casa de Zhobot are hoping to see a certain reunion between two of our favorite characters as well as a reunion between a tiny baby and her family. CROSSING FINGERS! Some ass-kicking at Terminus would be great too, of course. :D
Eagle Eyed Anon spotted a ring in the Five Nights at Freddy’s photos and wondered why there was no proposal story - HERE IS ONE. And it’s not anyone else’s, we promise.
We included photos of cute animals that we took at an animal park during our fifth anniversary weekend so if no one wants to read this thang THEN THERE ARE CUTE ANIMALS FOR YOU INSTEAD. :D
Back in June (on Friday the 13th), almost a month after our five year anniversary, there was a blanket fort and a “yo you wanna get married” - I guess it was more proper then that. Maybe. Here is the thing Heather wrote on the Book of Faces when people were claiming PIX 4 PROOF HURRR:
“HELLO AND APOLOGIES FOR MY DERPY HAND but here is the ring because I have gotten a few “PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN” (and I love you guys for it hahaha XD).
Since I am a giant child and Nate has known about my love of blanket forts for a long time, I came home on Friday to find a pretty massive one in the living room (with the television inside of, naturally AND CHRISTMAS LIGHTS BECAUSE YOU KNOW I LOVE COLORED LIGHTS EVERYWHERE). Nate was inside playing - and cursing at - Dark Souls and after I crawled in and settled down… Happy Friday the 13th Proposal! I am absolutely overjoyed about the whole thing and so very grateful I have Nate in my life because there are definitely times I’ve felt, in the most basic of terms, extremely super craptastic - and he has always been there to help me out of that.
Late Friday night we were going to take the blanket fort down then we cackled and kept it up all weekend. Meals, video games, Netflix and laziness made up a lot of yesterday. Which is really no different than any other weekend — but this time it was in a !!BLANKET FORT!! and had an awesome bonus engagement thrown in too!”
We’re looking at Halloween 2015 as the date for the wedding of madness right now but NO WORRIES, our nerdery won’t stop here. We’re in the process of making… maybe 4 or 5 costumes each (and all kinds of ridiculous other little things) so KEEP AN EYE OUT. :D
lol the fnaf is both adorable and nightmare inducing. love your facial expressions. and GASP your ring! why no proposal story yet?!
Haha, thank you! The FNaF costume was pretty ridiculous but I had to do it because that game terrified us and intrigued us at the same time! I tried to look terrified of the adorable “animatronics” - I tried. XD
Oh daaaaag, good eye! I DIDN’T KNOW ANYONE WANTED A STORY D:
I’ll post the story I posted on Facebook here tonight with photos of cute animals with it as well so if people don’t want to read the ridiculousness they can look at cute animals instead. MUAHAH!
Mike Schmidt // Five Nights as Freddy’s - MAGFest 8.5
A few days before MAGFest 8.5 (which was a couple weekends ago and way too much fun <3), Heather got it in her head to make a FNaF costume consisting of stuffed animals. Thanks to Amazon (and Amazon Prime, oh man), four cheap Beanie Babies showed up at the door the Thursday before the convention.
The little additional bits (top hat, eyepatch, bib, etc.) were added last minute and look a hot mess but in the end it was worth it because the reactions went from “Cutest version of Five Nights!” to “THAT BEAR SCARED ME.” That last one was from a tiny little girl that the elevator opened to while Freddy was sitting on Heather’s head. 100% sure she had no idea what FNaF was, but that means Freddy was doing his job.
(Bonus photos of Foxy creeping out of Pirate’s Cove!)
Kinzie Kensington & Matt Miller (space suits) // Saints Row IV - Katsucon 2014
With Bria as Asha Odekar, Roger as Boss & Denis as Johnny Gat!
We’re extremely excited about Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell so here are some derpy photos from Katsucon to celebrate!
We have a lot of upcoming things we’re working on including more Saints Row costumes, some Dance Central costumes, Dangan Ronpa costumes, the $5 Cosplay Challenge, a new photo project — all kinds of stuff! So we are very sorry for the silence lately but there will hopefully be a flood of new things in the near future! :D
We are pretty much the worst people to take photos of because more often than not we’re acting stupid like in the above photos. We apologize to anyone who has had to deal with us/this in the past (and we love you all for putting up with it <3).
These span the past five years we’ve known each other from the oldest photo (Left 4 Dead - Hunter & Smoker - Dragon*Con 2009) to the most recent (Saints Row 3/4 - Kinzie Kensington & Matt Miller - Katsucon 2014). Which probably means we won’t be dropping this habit anytime soon. D:
;kfsdjlakjdkljfldfjsjdf that is pretty much all I know how to do at this moment because I am eternally in a state of THANK YOU SO MUCH now to the fabulous jeisma for this! :D!
As you can see I sufficiently freaked out about this when jeisma originally posted it, but I am still freaking out about it because because Morning Glories is a favorite comic of ours and Ike and Jade are favorite costumes of ours as well (all snark and all emo ALL THE TIME all fabulous too okay). We have more plans and will have photos in the future of more Morning Glories related goodness!
(P.S. EVERYONE SHOULD CHECK OUT MORNING GLORIES <3)
Kinzie Kensington // Saints Row series - various conventions, 2012 - 2014
A collection of all of the Kinzie Kensington costumes I’ve made/put together over the past couple years: Saints Row: The Third, White House portrait attire, SRIV promo art attire, SRIV opening/abduction, SRIV crib attire, Super Homie Kinzie & The Girl Who Hates the 50’s! I have so many Kinzie feels and have way too much fun costuming as her. :D
Many thanks to Bria and Nate for either help with these photos or being in them! Thanks to Denis for the Washington, D.C. photos!
