Star Trek Struggles

I have had most of the materials to get my Star Trek Fangirl costume made. But I’ve been struggling with how to incorporate Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Well, not anymore. While thinking about the 20th Century Doctor Who Fangirl costume, I had an epiphany about DS9. I’ve been thinking of the ST skirt as one huge piece. But there…

Casual/Closet debate

Recently I decided to see how most people defined “casual cosplay”. It is confusing and debated and a mess. The reason was I wanted to add a new category on here and wanted to use a non-debated term. That is why I’m adding the “Comfy Corner”. I realized that I have done a few cosplays…

DragonCon 2017 Plans

Your own qualities and love bring the characters you cosplay to life, not the screen accuracy or someone else's idea of the character. Forget headcanon, and try heartcanon." -Misa on Wheels

Almost done!

I am really looking forward to this week being over. Not because of class. Not because of grading. Not because of moving back home. Because I can spend the week getting ready for Marcon! Maybe it’s because last year I gave my students their final on Thursday and Marcon started on Friday. Maybe it’s because…

Marcon 52 plans!!

I just realized I never posted about Marcon last year. So to make up for it, here are my plans for this year! Friday: Tenth Doctor (Barcelona). I’m moderating the Doctor Who panel that day, so of course I have to be the Doctor. I feel like it’s “Barcelona”s turn to come out and play, again.…
