Bristol Ren Faire Adventure 2012

On the road to the Renaissance Faire
My fiancé Mike and I made our annual trek to the Wisconsin border for the Bristol Renaissance Faire! This year is the 25th anniversary of the faire, and as always, we had an amazing time. The weather was perfect for spending the day outdoors, walking around the grounds. The Ren Faire is a place to... Read more »

Chicago Comic Con 2012 is just a memory now, and this year was an interesting one. This year, Wizard World used more of the convention center space! Part of me loved the changed, and part of me was just confused with the whole new layout of the show. I loved the extra elbow room. The... Read more »

Costumes of C2E2 2012

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) is just a memory now, and I had a blast! The convention floor was impressive. There were plenty of vendors, artist, and celebrity guests. From a cosplayers perspective, two things I loved right away were the changing rooms, and the wider aisle on the convention floor. Last year,... Read more »

During the WGN Evening News, they share viewers Facebook photos that were posting on their Fan Page. Even though I work at WGN, today was the first time one of my photos made it on air. Somehow it doesn’t surprise me that the picture is of me and my fiancé in costume! (When are we... Read more »

Because one Halloween costume wasn't enough!

Friday, I wore my Hogwarts School uniform to work. Representing the Hufflepuff House! I don't think anyone at work has ever seen me in a tie. Most people got it, but there were a few who thought I was just "dressed up" for some random reason.
I have an extensive collection of costumes in my closet, so naturally one costume wasn’t enough for me this year. I suppose I was making up for my lame Halloween last year. Last Halloween I celebrated with a Smallville marathon, and I sort of half-assed a costume for work (but not a lot of people... Read more »

C2E2 2011 Highlights

C2E2 2011 Highlights
Well, C2E2 has come and gone, and if you’re like me, you’re still getting over that nasty cold you caught from one of the thousands of strangers you came into contact with. (We call it “con-crud”) Overall I had a great time at the convention. The comic heavyweights made their presence known with their massive... Read more »

Halloween at work

Fun times at work…sorta So, as I mentioned in my last blog, I’m not really feeling the Halloween spirit this year. Today was the Halloween potluck at work, and since my shift starts in the afternoon, I missed most of it (well pretty much all of it). I debated all week long on whether I... Read more »

Trick or Treat (or not)

Well it’s that time of year again. Time to throw together those last minute costumes, put reflective tape on your kids clothes, and try to avoid sex offenders while encouraging your kids to take candy from strangers. I’m talking about Halloween! Recently I’ve had issues with trick-or-treaters. My main issue is that they’re like an... Read more »
