As always, that was fun! Sadly, I didn’t wear all the costumes I took with me. Friday was a success with Wafuku Ten.

Aquacolor looked like it would work. So I went over to CosplaySupplies.com and took a look at what they had.… Read More Make-up Test!
Between yesterday and today a lot of money was spent. I love it! Yesterday I was finally able to order my Next Generation uniform! Now if can just arrive before DragonCon next year I’ll be a very happy Trekkie! After that I went to Ulta to get restocked on my make-up. After much looking and… Read More Shopping spree!
