March 31st 2014

Oops..... I was playing League of Legends.... instead of doing anything I was supposed to be doing....

Here is what I saw today:









Does anyone recognize this thing? It is almost like a horsetail.... but weird....
These two guys watched me walk on by:





Here is Inky. I know you haven't see her for a little while.....

Have a great night!!

March 30th 2014

Here are the prints I got at ECCC. .

Since I have found a love for the Morrigan, mostly she has been following me around in the books I am reading, and not all of them are Celtic mythology either, I got these two prints. They are by an artist named John Garre from Corvid Comics.


I think the artist told me they were Ravens though.... not crows....

Here is a very nice lung dragon. I can't find the title of this one but the artist is Gillian Newland.


Joel got this original artwork of Choo-Choo Bear, the boneless cat from Something Positive.





I had Danielle Corsetto from Girls with Slingshots draw me Doom Kitty! and I also got a print of Jamie!


This kitty looked so sad I had to take him home! He is by Sugar Fueled.





Last but not least the cutest happiest things I have ever seen!! They are by Katy Hardgrove.




And finally.... yes I wore them all day!!

March 29th 2014

So, I went to my first Convention today.


Here is Jen. I went with her. (Joel was there too and her boyfriend Adam)

It was loads of fun. I also learned a lot.

First.... I should take at least two days to look at all the stuff.... and by stuff I mean people dressed up... I totally forgot to take photos for most of the day because I was too busy looking at everyone and everything!

Second..... Maybe I should have turned the flash on my little camera.... I am disappointed in how some of the photos came out :( especially the ones of me with people.

I had a good time and that is was really matters. I would have liked to have better photos for today but I don't. I will try again next year!


This is my personal favorite cosplay! Look how adorable they are!

This is me with Jennie Breeden. She writes and draws the web comic The Devil's Panties, not it isn't satanic porn.
Joel took this photo.




Here she is drawing a picture.

This woman is Danielle Corsetto. She writes and draws Girls with Slingshots. Joel is having her fill out blank Cards Against Humanity cards.

I REALLY with this one came out better. These guys were really great Klingons! We asked for a photo with them and they grabbed us around the shoulders and pulled us in. Look at Jen's face... she is uncertain what is going on.
Joel took this photo.

This little Darth Vader was so excited about R2-D2. I figured I would just get my photo taken with both of them.
This photo was taken by a complete stranger.






And this little Leia was so adorable!!


This little girl was having fun dancing to the band playing outside. She was also standing on a vent blowing out air. This was taken through two windows.

Here are some other cosplay I saw today.



Seriously Freaky.... this guy growled and me. I was kinda scared.

You can't really tell but the guy on the right is Wonder Woman. He is wearing a skirt and everything.

Cat woman has the saddest eyes......
I am pretty sure this guy was knitted then felted. This T-Rex was taller then me.....



Captain America got a little too warm.


This bike cab even made the T.A.R.D.I.S noise!


I want to wear these everyday.... Do you think that I can pull it off?


I wish we were going back tomorrow. I would probably be able to take better photos now that the awe of seeing so much cool stuff in one place has warn off.... Oh well I know better for next time now!

(I will show you all the neat artwork we got tomorrow!)

March 28th 2014

So I got this letter today.....
It makes me laugh and cry at the same time.  This is a $125 increase in our rent. If you know our neighborhood or have seen out building you would know that is is absolutely ridiculous.

There are some big changes coming for us in the next two months.......and I have a feeling it isn't going to be so easy.

On the lighter side of things, Opal was very amiable to getting her picture taken today. She even stepped up on my finger from her perch in her cage!









Artemis, however, was having none of it!





Here is the start to my latest origami piece. It doesn't look like much yet I know....



I also made these cranes out of some sheet music. I don't think they look quite right. Opinions?





Now I have to pack our lunches and figure out what I am going to wear tomorrow to the Emerald City Comic Con!
