A bit of Sparky Malarkey


 I don't normally do this kind of thing for bloggers who have given up the ghost, but I'm going to make an exception in this case, as it's the birthday of original Coven member and my one-time stalkee: Timothy "Elizabeth" Leng, aka Sparky Malarkey!
 Plus, it took me ages to make this card, so I want to show it off (although the photos are really very poor - Phone must have been having a bad day).

"From starry treks through Facebook, to the stables of blogs past"
Teedjé (because his initials are T J) Leng came about after a Facebook comment conversation in which I suggested Tim could be a joined Trill (Leng being the symbiont). The cosplaying bit may become clear when you see the final photo.



Oooh! It's opening...

And here we have the 24th century Captain Leng dressed up in his period 2260s dress uniform finery.
Although it's not supremely evident from the photo, the figure stands proud of the refit Constitution-class background schematic, and was inspired by the
OFFICIAL SPARKY TIM CUT OUT 'N KEEP ACTIONLESS FIGURE! (compo results here)
The name of his character was one of his alter-egos from another blog we frequented.

 Current Coven members—and one or two of the Flying Monkeys—should recall some of the high jinks we got up to once upon a time. But, should memories fail, or if you weren't around then, here are some handy-dandy links:



 

 Now, I know this looks like it has been a bit of a rush job, but I didn't have anything else prepared, and I've run out of time for the mo. I can see from my sidebar that you've all been busy blogging, so I'll pop 'round your blogs tomorrow at some point.

    2. Of course you realise that if I think he's hot & he's disappeared for a while, he will almost certainly be in prison for murder? Just my type, actually. Or I could swap him for the Romanian I'm currently working on?

    3. I'm not in prison. How rude!

  3. Before my time but I do recall the occasional reference to the legendary Tim.

    PS: Is dressing in period costume for a Ren Faire considered Cosplay? Uh, I'm asking for "a friend."

    1. I would think so? I would imagine that Ren Faire costumerie was the start of modern cosplay, so your "friend" can relax.
