DragonCon 2017 Plans

This is very tentative, but I’m really hoping that it will become the list of costumes I’m going to be taking to DragonCon this year. First Doctor Bathing Beauty Bitch Planet inmate The Doctor (Kimono) Star Trek Fangirl 21st Century Doctor Who Fangirl The First Doctor Bathing Beauty is the only one actually done at this…

Marcon 52 Success!

I got home earlier from Marcon 52. I’m tired. I’m ready for a nap. I am so happy! It was so much fun seeing friends, going to panels, geeking out, and wearing costumes! I deviated slightly from my original plans. I realized I don’t have appropriate black pants that fit for “Barcelona” Ten. So I…

"Be a black Harley Quinn. Be a male Poison Ivy. Be a female Loki. Be a mermaid in a hijab. Be a Buffy in a wheelchair. 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

Priorities

I am sad to admit that I will not be able to finish my Star Trek Fangirl outfit for DragonCon this year. The class I am teaching, my thesis, and other professional commitments are requiring my attention more. I am going to have it done for next year. I am hoping to have it done for…

Post-Marcon Inspiration

As usual, I come away from a convention with a new way of looking at my costumes. It really isn’t a bad thing, though. It inspires me to keep working on the ideas I have, gives me fresh ideas for how to approach problems, and opens my mind to new possibilities. I was on a…
