Organization? What’s that?

I am so messy. I’ve got costume parts all over the apartment. I’ve got accessories and shoes all over. I’ve got crafting tools and supplies all over. But that is going to change. Now that I’m home, period, I’ve got the time and the vision to get things in shape. First priority: the costumes. When…

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

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!

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.…

Non-Compliant Plans

I just finished reading the first 9 issues of Bitch Planet and am eagerly awaiting the tenth to come out in a little under a month! The more I read, the more I love the series and the concept. I got the idea to cosplay from it, but I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate to…

The coat is here!!!

I have to give AbbyShot serious respect. I ordered the coat and it arrived the next day! But I was out of town, so I only got to it today. O.M.G. This coat is amazing! I was worried it would be too big, because it says that it runs large on purpose. But they didn’t…

The Silent One is coming!

Today I placed two orders. One for the Mooby hat from the Secret Stash. The other for the Coat from AbbyShot. I’m finally doing Silent Bob!  Well, I’m finally cosplaying Silent Bob. His wife seems to be doing a great job doing him… Sorry, it’s Silent Bob! How can I not make that joke? Anyway.…
