That time of year again!

I was sort of thinking about going to Phoenix Comicon instead because of the amount of amazing guests but I already had a non-refundable pass to Fanime. Maybe next year!

Reprising my role (for the third year!) as Russell Tringham! This year, Fletcher will be played by my youngest sister [livejournal.com profile] ky313!

Second cosplay is (tentatively) River Tam from Objects in Space. I found a pattern for her vest and I'm going to finish it this week and hopefully have a dress made for me by my wonderful sister [livejournal.com profile] brinabean! Pics will definitely be in order :D

Fanime Plan of Awesome:

So I'm totally going to Yaoi-con with [livejournal.com profile] brinabean in September. And possibly doing cosplay again, depending on the crowd!

I am super excited about this!

Fanime COMPLETELY made up for my depressing graduation a thousand times over!

Here, have some pictures!
(You can see the full set here on Facebook!)

(Also, going to a con hungover is QUITE the experience)

Avatar and FMA...with comments! )

I have an awesome story about an unplanned Avatar gathering but it involves more pictures so I'll post it later!

Well, it's a GORGEOUS day outside and I'm actually getting stuff done. Sunny days do that to me.

I'm sick of wearing winter clothes...bring on Spring!

I've also been on a Tudor kick lately mostly due to reading The Other Boleyn Girl before seeing the movie (tomorrow night!) By the way, that book is 661 pages long and I read and finished it all last Tuesday/Wednesday IT'S THAT GOOD :D

ETA: My Cosplay...so far, atleast!

+I have a new toy! My shiny new 250 gig external hard drive. Keeping with the tradition of naming things (I named my iPod Persephone, my car is The Echo, my computer's name is Chimmy though I sometimes refer to it as my partner in crime), I have decided to name my new hard drive...


See, because both are small and cute and expensive.

+Also, it's official. The Christmas decorations have just gone up at work. Nrgh. I remember when they didn't go up until October. It's the middle of September and I've already got ornament glitter on my clothes.


+I don't believe I've mentioned this here yet, but my sister [livejournal.com profile] ginnaveve and I are to going to cosplay at the fanime con next May. I've gone to fanime twice now and I've loved all the costumes so much that I want to dress up next time. Sure, our costumes will be fairly easy to make, but no less fun.

So if I happen to say that we'll be cross dressing as Russell and Fletcher Tringham, it shouldn't be so surprising to some people. And if it is surprising, well, better to get used to it now :D

I'll need some opinions. Neither of us have natural blond hair, and I'm too much of a wimp to cut it short and dye it, so we're opting for wigs. Here are two that I've found that I'm partial to as first choices. Also, recommendations for websites/companies would be awesome!

Russell. Will have to style it a bit.
Fletcher. Keeping in mind that he wears a funny green head...thing over it.
