Evan Goes Public

I've been amused by not publishing photos of my entire face on evannichols.com and this LiveJournal. As much fun as that was, I've decide to conclude that practice. I didn't really have a good reason for doing it (except for amusement, naturally), but I've decided that since I would like to be a known writer, it might actually be beneficial for people to recognize me. (Don't worry, I'll continue to conceal the identities of my friends.)

So while last week's Creative Procrastination activity was the Dishwashing video, I spent this morning producing the following photo. Last night I dyed a new costume (the first pass didn't have the right colors), and I'm much more pleased with how it came out. Here's a preview of what I"ll post on the Dr. Eldritch site:

No, I didn't include the words because I don't think you know who I am. It's so when this picture is grabbed by Google Images and all those sites that have a "last 100 photos posted on LJ" feature, people will know who they're looking at.

This is what I'll be wearing at San Diego Comic-Con (at least part of the time)! I suspect I"ll mostly hear "Who are you supposed to be?", but I can hope that someone will look at me and say "Hey, you're Dr. Eldritch!"
