I'm Pam Newman.
I am awesome every day & you are too.

I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
I love nerdy conventions.
The last time I was at a convention was in the 90’s. I went to an anime convention in Toronto. I wish I’d had time and energy to make a costume, because there are some seriously rad cosplayers at Derby City Comic Con, today.
From the article:
There are tons of geeks in this city. Some of them are beer geeks, getting excited about microwbrews at events like Beerfest. Many others are bike geeks who talk shop at the many local bike shops popping up in the east end. Lots of people geek out over their favorite college sports here in river city every time the Cardinals so much as fart. Even Geek Squad City, a facility in Bullitt County embraces the sexiness and desirability of smart folks who know their way around a motherboard.
Be that as it may, this weekend the classic geeks get their glory!
OK, 1. I can't really say James Marsden is a douche. I'm sure he's probably a pretty swell guy. I'm not sure why I claimed this. Alcohol was involved at the time. 2. I'm very aware I'm in a small percentage of people who actually like Cyclops. Still gotta agree to disagree with you on that one. He definitely doesn't win the personality contest, I admit. 3. He's kicked plenty of ass with his powers. I know I'm not gonna sway you on hating him, which is fine, but theres plenty of pros to his cons
Yeah, I definitely agree that we disagree about how much Cyclops sucks.
You’re the Cyclops Lover who came to my inbox trying to convince me to like this character, so of course I’m gonna throw out all the stops.
I’m totally into giving things chances, and Scott Summers had plenty. I’ve hated cyclops since the 90’s. In the mid 2000’s I dated a guy named, no joke, Scot Simons (one addtional T & M removed for google indexing reasons). He LOVED Cyclops. I almost thought that he would show me the redeeming values to this character.
Nope, he turned out to be a massive tool, and merely reinforced his fellow Scott’s sucktatude.
My mind is made, but thanks for recognizing you’re not going to change my opinion, Cyclops lover.
The Doonesbury comic many papers won’t be printing this week.
I don’t think this is the funniest Doonesbury I’ve ever seen, but I appreciate what it’s saying. It’s saying that abortion CAN be funny. Thanks, Doonesbury.
I read somewhere earlier that the courier wouldn’t be printing a comic, and I suppose this is it.
Really, Courier Journal? Y’all won’t print this, but you printed that article where brent mckim said that African American parents sending their kids to all Black schools is segregation and undermining democracy?
Mmm, I don’t know where I put that big bag of dicks for y’all to consume, but when I find it Courier Journal, you have at ‘em.
You bring the sriracha.
Harley Quinn inspi sketch!
I decided to do 3 designs since I’ve been getting a lot of request for Harley.
Putting these together will be a bit harder than the rest since her traditional design has a lot of cross diagnol-ing what nots hah.
Design 1 (left): Easiest to find in your closet design.
- Red plaid button up. Changing the collar white is optional!
- Waist high pencil skirt. Add her diamond logo with fabric or fabric paint. If you don’t like pencil skirts, opt for an A-Line or shorts even.
- Red tights are optional. You can also get patterned red/black/white tights too if you like.
- Black boots or sexy high heels!
Design 2 (middle): Most difficult to find in your closet. I made this design based of rompers. Rompers seem to be really popular these days. I know Silly always looks super cute in them so I wanted to do a romperesk HQ design : )!
- The best thing to do with the romper is to find a pattern of it and edit it to create the split black and red look. Or you can buy a white romper, unseam it, dye the seperate pieces, then sew it back together. With this design, it’s a little poofy at the legs and there is black lace at the bottom. You can make the poof by hemming the bottoms with elastic. Make sure the rompers have the diamond logo once again : )!
- Checkered bandana or scarf.
- Black and red hair ties. This design the hair ties/clips are the shapes of diamonds.
- Striped arm warmers (or knee high socks cut at the feet to put your hands through).
- Black/red gloves. The loose fit at the wrist is optional.
- Any kind of tights. Red/black/white any combo.
- Black and/or red boots. This design has a cowboy boot cut at the top but more sleeker/hugs the leg more and has a higher heel than regular cowboy boots. Any kind of boots would do.
Design 3 (right): Kind of easy to find in your closet or to buy.
- Red hoodie. Hoodie being a crop kind is optional. Black fuzzies around the hood is also optional.
- Black fitted top.
- Red/black shorts. Or red/black pants. I’ve seen Hot Topic selling those types of pants in the recent past.
- Checkered tights are optional. Or any sort of red/black/white tights. Having them two different colors would be cool : ).
- Red/black shoes. Converses, boots, flats. Whichever you prefer.
I hope this is helpful for all of you who asked me about Harley Quinn inspired outfits for Halloween and all that jazz >w<!
Also this is my first villain inspi sketch. Yay!
I adore the simplicity of the first look; it’s a translation of Harley that is both cute and incredibly wearable, plus you can easily stencil on (or appliqué) the diamond motif on a pencil skirt (as well as on any other article of clothing).
The Harley romper is my favorite piece of all three of these redesigns. I adore rompers (especially when paired up with boots), and I’ve actually had a similar Harley Quinn-inspired design that I’ve been working on during downtime over the past year or so; however, my redesign was actually inspired by a circus-themed romper that my friend Kelly created a couple years ago. Although I’m not fond of the black and white stripes in the second look, I do greatly prefer the chic vertical stripes over the tired b&w horizontal striped tights that scream Hot Topic mallrat.
The fuzzy hooded jacket in the third ensemble immediately reminded me of Harley Quinn’s winter look from Batman: The Animated Series:
Although I’m not sure if two-toned b&w/red&black checkered tights exist, I can refer you to We Love Colors’ Diamond Tights in red (We Love Colors actually sent me a pair of these tights, which can be seen HERE).
Love this! You could also use We Love Colors Vertical Striped Thigh Highs for look #2! :)
This post is so full of things I love that I damn near exploded. I thank the stars above there were no references to nachos.
This is Harely Quinn from the video game, Arkham Asylum.
Hmm, she is a little different, but I never take costume changes from video games seriously. Her personality seems the same in the game. You can watch a video of a cut scene from Arkham Asylum where she interacts with Posion Ivy here.
This is Harley Quinn, aka Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel. She’s a character who originated on the Batman Animated Series on the WB as the Joker’s Girlfriend. Her backstory is that she was a psychologist who became obsessed with the Joker and turned to a life of crime because she fell in love. She was so popular on the show, she was added to the DC word within the comics.
Eventually Harely was given her own book series, where she left the Joker and enjoyed lots of crime-committing and lesbian subtext with Dr.Pamela Isely, aka Poison Ivy. This is the only comic book series where I’ve willingly and happily paid more than cover price to own the physical comics, all of which I owned… and subsequently lost in a move. There’s a potential *tip on how to win the Much Desired Favor of Pamela Jean Newman, but I digress.
Dr. Harleen Quinzell is my favorite comic book character. Maybe because I identify with her because I was once the girlfriend of a Psychopath (True!) and I’m one quirky broad. Plus, that costume is, as the folks from Boston say, ”wicked cool.”
OH MY GOD SHE REALLY MADE ONE!
The lady who drew the Gotham Girls throwback dresses pictured in this post REALLY MADE A DRESS. It’s being featured in a fashion show!
I think I’m going to shower her with praise and cookies (and, maybe even money if I can figure out where I put it all, lol) until she makes me one too.
The fact that you know about M makes me adore you more. Jubilee is my spirit animal, and I’ll never forgive them for killing Synch: he had such potential to be an amazingly powerful mutant.
Okay Synch? Awesome. AWESOME. I wish he had been included in Marvel Vs Capcom 2, because fuck, can you even IMAGINE the kind of shit you could use him for as an assist??? But no, they give us fucking Marrow. Who gives a shit about Marrow?
Honestly, the entire Generation X team was my shit. It was perfect at a time when I needed to be reading comics, you know?
Also? M was a bitch, but really, her whole family was fucked up. Complex storylines make for the most interesting characters.
