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…

Marcon 52 plans!!

Marcon 50: The Costumes

Marcon 50 was amazing. And some of the best moments of the weekend were due to my costume choices. On Friday I was Dr. Abbey.
