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 »

Today on Etsy, they featured a makeup video tutorial from Traci Hines. I must admit, I’m a bit of a Traci fangirl myself. Some of you cosplay enthusiast may recognize Traci from her various Disney costumes. She is also a singer, mermaid model, performer, accessory designer, and a makeup artist!…Busy girl! Check her out on... 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 »

The road to Dragon*Con

  Some of you may have read my previous blog about Dragon*Con, the most epic convention I’ll be attending this year. I’m still recovering from last week’s Chicago Comic Con, and next week I’ll be packing up and driving down to Atlanta for 4 days of cosplay, parties, and shenanigans. A good number of my...

Dragon*Con: The ultimate pop culture convention

Dragon*Con: The ultimate pop culture convention
DragonCon is by far the largest convention I’ve ever gone to. It takes place every year during Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. I like to think of DragonCon as a cosplayers’ convention. There is absolutely no limit to what costumes you’ll see on the convention floor. Because DragonCon is a multi-genre event, the costumes... Read more »
