Blog will be back soon! | January 8, 2020 @ 7:40 PM
Just a quick status update to let you all know that my host upgraded my PHP version and my old hand-coded blog was no longer compatible. Never fear, the old blog posts have been backed up and I will get them back online as soon as I figure out an alternative. I don't really want to switch the site to Wordpress (though I will if need be), but there are other options out there. I could even just manually update the site.
I know it's been quite a long time since I updated with new pages, and I've been bad at status updates as well. I had talked about the disruptive construction that started behind my house, but that was honestly just an added stress to an overall much larger issue: my health. In the midst of working on Issue 3, I started experiencing some strange symptoms, and by the time I was partway through Issue 4, I could barely function. Five years seems like a long time, but when you're chronically ill, that time can go by so fast. And that's what I've finally come to understand that I am: chronically ill. Chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and a number of other symptoms that cause brain fog and memory issues made continuing to work on the comic really difficult.
That said, I really miss it. I miss the person I used to be, able to get involved in fandom and create stories. I miss fanfiction in general, but I especially miss the fun combination of story, photography, digital art, and crafting that went into working on this project. I want to get my life back. I know I'm never going to have the energy levels I had 6-7 years ago, but I want to hope that I can find a way to make it work. And now that the Monster High doll line has ended (meaning I don't have to worry about finding ways to incorporate new characters into the comic... which, I know I didn't really need to, but sometimes new characters were too cool to pass up), I feel liberated to focus on taking the dolls I do have and making their story my own.
I don't know when it will be, but I promise: Freaky Gone Fabulous is not over!
Hello and welcome to "Freaky Gone Fabulous," a webcomic featuring Mattel's Monster High dolls, written and photographed by SailorDonut. You can find all the latest issues here. Enjoy your stay!
In order to make FGF a success, there are a number of Monster High dolls, playsets, and accessories that I am seeking. You can assist the project by helping me track down the items I'm missing! There's a complete list here, but the things I need the most right now are:
CAM boy upper arms/legs (any color)
DotD Deuce's sunglasses
Thanks for supporting Freaky Gone Fabulous!
