Today, once I left the office, my Spring Break officially started. I’ve been avoiding doing any school-related work. The closest I have gotten to school work is looking through the readings I need to do before class resumes after break. It’s been so nice. One of the things I’ve been doing instead is working on… Read More Refresh
As I first posted way back when, I use a Kindle Keyboard as my Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. At some point I misplaced it. I knew where the cover was, with “Don’t Panic” in big, friendly, silver letters. But I could not find my Guide. While I was moving, I was going through things… Read More It’s alive!!!
After talking with a friend yesterday and showing her some of my costumes, I have been told I should dress up in costume the whole week leading up to Halloween. So instead of dressing up the Thursday before to teach and on Halloween, I’ll be wearing six costumes in one week. It’s been an interesting… Read More Halloween Week plans
This is what I get for making declarations. I just had a brilliant thought. While I love Arthur, I did go as him last year. And lately I have been thinking about having some Jaffa Cakes. So I’m switching out Arthur for Tim. Originally I was aiming for all literary costumes, since Marcon started as… Read More Did I say stone?
Usually I wait until the convention to set my plans in stone, but Marcon 50 is an exception. I signed up to be on a few panels and two of them were going to have coordinating costumes if I got to be on them. Well, I am! And thankfully they’re on different days, right now,… Read More Set in stone!
I’ve been seriously thinking of entering a couple of competitions this year. I guess I’m to that point where I’m confident and comfortable with my costumes that I actually want to put them on stage for all to see. This year Ohayocon has their Found Item category for the Masquerade. They only allow Found Item… Read More Competition Contemplation
That was a wonderful convention. I’ve already gushed about it over on Polymind, but I wanted to talk costumes a bit more. Arthur was the most recognized costume of the weekend. Come to think about it, I may make Arthur a staple of Marcon. I had my picture taken three times, which was great. I… Read More Marcon 2014
So, I got to thinking. I’ve got a lot of work to do to get Arthur’s wig in shape. Then a thought popped up: why not go genderbend instead? So I tried on the pyjamas and liked it. Then I tied my hair back and knew it would be perfect! So it looks like Arthur’s… Read More Slight change in plans
I realized when I got home tonight that I had two choices: 1) Work like mad to hopefully get the coat done, hope it looks good, go with the wig and staff as is. 2) Not take Harry to Marcon and let Arthur get convention time. I’ve decided to go with option 2. I don’t… Read More Executive Decision
Now that I know what I’ll be doing with my life for the next year, my motivation has returned! Tomorrow I’m going to get some new razor blades so I can get Harry’s wig in better shape. Sunday I’m going to get working on his coat! Finally! Granted I’ve got less than a month to… Read More Motivated
