The New New Girl

6 weeks!
6 weeks since I've signed my lease and I'm convinced there is magic out here.  Of course, Im sure it only shows up if you're willing to work your ass off and give up everything...but I've learned in life the hardest decisions to make often turn out with the most beneficial outcome.
Over the past month I've been doing my best to keep you updated through my
Snapchat: VictoriaPaege
Instagram: pocketsized21
Facebook and even Tumblr  
but for those of you that may be missing my posts, don't have those sites or- just want to read a blog....this is for you. And the pictures guys.
Let's start with tonight. I'm sitting on the set of a new TV show waiting to film. If you've ever thought about acting, or even just sitting in the background of a film to 'see what it's like' the first thing to know is that you'll be on set for hours and hours. If you're working background (bg), 8 hour days very rarely exist (it's usually 12 or longer) so music, books, your monologue and sides are fantastic to bring.
If you aren't bg don't worry. You'll get your call sheet the night before and your sides are normally ready for you when you get to the (or your) holding area. By that point you should have an idea of what's going on though so I won't go into too much detail on that. 
Since I signed my lease, I've only been 'home' 5 days. As soon as I moved in I went to Long Beach to visit with my loves Nei Ruffino, JP Roth and Eric Basaldua. It was a double birthday weekend so I ended up staying 5 or 6 days to celebrate and visit.
Then I came to Burbank and found out one of my best friends was going to be in LA for the Creative Artists Emmys in which he was nominated for Outstanding Special FX on American Horror Story. 
He won. 
After that weekend, about 2 days later I flew out to New Orleans for some meetings. It was my first time in New Orleans so I hustled, got my info out to some pretty important people and set up some more meetings. Since one of them fell a few days after I was to fly back to Cali, I pushed my trip forward about a week. 
The actor I was staying with in NOLA had to go film in LA so I had to find a place to stay. Because of this, I called up a cousin I hadn't seen in years and he drove up from Florida to pick me up. I got to see his beautiful home, meet his twins and hang out with his husband whom I absolutely adore. We took a trip to the Portifino Island resort and played on Periscope. 
Then I came back to NoLa for about a week for more submissions and to go to my meeting. When I got back I got another wonderful gift as well- a girl I've known almost 10 years and had NEVER gotten to hang out with in person, just spent years getting to know each other through phone and Internet. I got to meet her family and hang out with her for a week! She showed me around Bourbon street, and fed me the best southern food!!! 
That brings me back to LA. The day after I got back I went into town to submit to a new bg/principal acting agency. I spent the morning there then went to archery !

Game of Posts

I just saw the best T.V. I've ever seen in my whole life!!!!
Do you watch Game of Thrones? Did you watch the latest episode?  If you didn't then you need to watch it IMMEDIATELY!!!!! AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! IT WAS MY FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!!
**We can talk about it in the comments after my post**
So here I am! I'm finally back.  For now, I have a tiny break in the insanity where I can collect some thoughts and share some randomness.
I stopped posting for a while because at first I didn't think that I had enough to write about.  Then, not writing became habit.  Now I have so much that I have a hard time deciding where to start!
I unloaded the pics from my phone a few weeks ago and realized I had a few thousand pictures just sitting on it. Hahah!!!!  whoops!- that means a lot of picture filled posts are on the way!
Phoenix Comicon was a BLUR!!!!
I kept myself on a very tight schedule this month, getting ready for the convention and then getting the new place I'm staying at ready for my brother and his friend to stay.
I didn't know for sure when or if my brother was going to be coming so I had to make sure to prepare extra early.   I've been filming promo stuff for The Theatre Macabre and getting prepared for the pilot so although I had new prints, my focus was going to be more on the series and promoting the new pin up sketch card Justin Chung and I had.
 Our 2015 pin-up sneak peak
Justin also drew this of me as X23 for the Marvel Universe 2014 trading card series
I didn't want to stress about the con so I decided to only have 2 new cosplay.  Tara and I had always wanted to do a group cosplay so, knowing that we were running out of time, Tara found this


We got to working on the ears and Amanda (ModifiedMinds) made us skirts!
Then, we tried on our wigs
YAY! Day 1 cosplay was almost done!  I had 2 weeks until the convention.  I found out my brother would be here the Monday before con which meant I had 4 days to finish! Luckily, teaser pics from the new Suicide Squad leaked so I had a new costume in mind.  It took the rest of week for me to order, find and make the outfit and then, late Sunday night my brother got in to town! 
I planned ahead for this con and got things in order before I spent the week with my brother.  It was incredible being able see my family and be able to attend the convention.  
I'll be back with what we did during the week and then I'll do another post on how I got my outfits ready.  Lot's of posts this week. 
to my blog and you won't miss a post! 
Peace, yo.

Comic Con, Cosplay and Horror!

It's here!!
It's June 1st, the first day of the month and the day after Phoenix Comicon!!!!!!!
Being my first convention of the year and the biggest - I decided to put together a new cosplay with ModifiedMinds!  
Since my past favorites include Vanessa Allen's Female Joker

 I decided to play again - this time as the new Harley from the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.  Leaked set pics were up a few weeks ago so I started making everything! I told Amanda what I was doing and she helped me complete my outfit by making the BEST shirt and shorts.  I got everything done FRIDAY NIGHT after the con- I was up painting my shoes until 2am! 
Here are some of the leaked set pics of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn:

And here is ME

Mad Max mask and shirt by ModifiedMinds
One of the MOST talented cosplayers and coolest ladies in existence, Freddie Nova 
(Check out her Predator- you'll cum. Guys and ladies. She's just too good.  )
 I'm finishing the bat and have a few more things to add to the costume this week before I shoot as her, including more body paint and tattoos!!  
During the con I also handed out the first fliers for our horror series, The Theatre Macabre!! The first teaser will be out this month! 
What do you think of the new Harley outfit? What about the Joker and all of the tattoos that call out his insanity.... the 'HAHAHA,' 'damaged' on his head and the giant joker on his shoulder/chest?! There are some decisions that look a little crazy but ---
The set pics haven't seen color correcting or anything yet, so things will probably look a lot different after editing. Ughhh and Margot! She's so gorgeous!!!!!!! Plus, she's already got the accent down.  I haven't seen Will Smith in anything in a while either so I'm looking forward to seeing him play Deadshot.  He looks badass too.   I'm excited to see what they do with it!

A New Me

So what's up my friends? It seems like a lot is going on this month already!!
I finished Boardwalk Empire.  Do any of you watch that show? I don't know how I feel about the ending.  I liked the series overall though and Steve Buscemi did an absolutely fantastic job on the series.
I'm also getting myself ready for the next role I'll be appearing in.  I'm not only getting myself ready mentally and emotionally, but am changing a few things about my appearance.  Since July  have been eating more healthy and have dropped some weight but last week, the biggest change came and I cut my hair off. My friend and hair dresser Debbie came over and cut about 10'' off!
Oh gawd, so much hair

 Amanda also got new hair ^_^
And Tara s just so stunning that you don't even notice hair. On anyone. 
In other November news- We have a new name for our series!!!!!   As soon as we start filming I will give you more details but we have made some huge progress over the past few weeks.  A new horror series with a fantastic cast and with a different story every week.  I AM ECSTATIC!!!! 
In other important news that I feel is too important to pass up- The lander Philea successfully landed on a comet- YAY!! Ok, they may have lost contact with it already, but at least it landed and we can learn from that.  We have been making some huge strides in space travel lately.   I hope that with all of the independent companies venturing into space travel that we go farther faster than expected and learn more than we could have ever imagined. 
Oh, and also, Keira Knightley posed topless for Interview! magazine and  Kim Kardashian is naked all over the internet for some reason.  I can't figure out why but if this is what it takes to loosen people up so be it.  I think as a society we can be a bit sheltered anyway. 
Just dance!
Love and Peace!

New shoot with Larry Alan!!

Hello my friends! Its November!
 What did you do for Halloween? I spent some time in LA before coming to Arizona to shoot with Larry Alan for his annual Countdown to Halloween.
In one day we built the sets and Tara and I worked on makeup. Tara  created and taught me gore fx and I taught her how to make bruises ^_^.  In 13 hours we had 2 sets built and did 2 different sets of horror themed pictures.

For the full set, visit Larry Alan Daily.
Peace out.

It's a new, creepy week!

Hello my little Victorian ghouls. Its October 21st, which means it's only 10 days until Halloween. That also means lots of parties, costumes and cold weather.  Last week I went to Tech Shop in Chandler, Az for their party and it was incredible!! They had laser etched pumpkin pies, a Halo gaming room, The Walking dead playing,
  music attached to flaming pumpkins 
 and a gore fx class taught by the talented Tara Hutchison.
  Fire, pumpkins, free beer from San Tan Brewery and my best friends!! 

 After the party we went to San Tan Brewery.  My favorite? The Cilantro hummus! NomNomNom!!!
