Since I started the 50th Anniversary Outfit back in 2013, I have allowed myself to buy Sonic Screwdrivers for the outfit. At that point, I only had my Nine/Ten Sonic because I am a Ten cosplayer. I managed to get three more Sonics before DragonCon: Three, Four, and Eleven. At the time, Eleven was the… Read More So many Sonics!
I have been knitting up a storm! For my Doctor Who fangirls, each one has fingerless gloves and scarves inspired by different Doctors. Last night I finally finished the last of them! Now I can show them off! First up, the 20th Century Fangirl: I decided to make a skinny scarf inspired by the Second Doctor’s… Read More Witty Little Knitter
This Christmas has been quite good for my Doctor Who fangirls. We went up to my father-in-law’s this past weekend and included in my presents was an Amazon gift card and cash. I used both on the DW fangirls. I decided to finally order the sonic screwdrivers I still needed. Five’s and Twelve’s arrived today, Thirteen’s… Read More Closing in on completion!
It’s that time of year again!! But this year’s DragonCon is going to be a bit different than usual for me. For the past few years, I’ve been a part of the Comics and Popular Arts Conference (CPAC, hopefully they’ll have the program up soon!) that is held as a part of the con. This… Read More DragonCon 2018: Pre-Con prep time!
As always, that was fun! Sadly, I didn’t wear all the costumes I took with me. Friday was a success with Wafuku Ten. Having the new brush set from Morphe – which it seems I need to make a post about – and their brush cleaner really helped me with my make-up. I also planned… Read More Marcon 53: Post-Con
I’m lounging on one of my beds in my room, with the other taken up by the costumes, relaxing and getting organized for the weekend. For Marcon 53! I hadn’t remembered I included tonight in my reservation. At first I thought I’d want an extra day off, but the I remembered the main reason: I… Read More Marcon 53: Here We Go!
I love to cosplay male characters, in case that wasn’t obvious. Yesterday, I did a full crossplay for the first time in a while. I’ve been kind of slacking on my crossplaying. I haven’t really using make-up in general. I haven’t been into seriously binding (using a binder instead of a sport bra). And I’ve… Read More Crossplay Contouring
I teach an Introduction to Popular Culture class. There are certain topics we have to cover, but mostly when and how is up to us. This week is my Fandom week. I encourage my students to come dressed to support something they are a fan of. Since I’m always wearing one t-shirt or another when… Read More Teaching in costume day one: Harry Dresden
I have finally protected my canvas wig head! That tape there on the desk arrived today! Immediately, I sat down, got out the rest of the supplies and pulled up “How to Cover & Protect Wig Heads” on YouTube: I have been watching this for years, waiting to find the right tape to use. Then… Read More Protection!
Over the past two school years, I have been struggling with the fact that I could tell my creativity was slowly declining. I could tell it wasn’t just one thing causing it. Obviously I was very stressed with adapting to graduate school. Then there was the stress of getting my thesis finished, while also dealing… Read More Creative Juices
