DragonCon Revelations

While I was at the Frenchy and the Punk concert at the Hyatt Concourse on Sunday, I was allowing myself to just relax and enjoy the moment. During that time, my brain decided to reexamine my plans for my Doctor Fangirl outfits. At first, I realized that a more Romani-Steampunk approach would work better because…

Work is coming!
