DragonCon Progress!

I am working frantically in order to finish my costumes for DragonCon. I thought that it would be a challenge to do two new costumes and, when it seemed like I’d finish that in time, I thought I’d do a couple MORE costumes. In all, I’ve made about four new costumes in about week and a half. […]

Geekphoria Relaunch

Hey guys–long time, no chat. I’ve gone AWOL for a while, I know. I was struggling with a few things. There was my illness, my break-up, and then school got the better of me for a while. Hopefully I’m back now, though. There are some things I’ve done since then that I’m going to share […]

Recap: C2E2 2015

Yikes. I’ve been AWOL for a while, guys, and that makes me feel sad inside. So much has happened recently, and I hope to catch you all up on my life–starting with the greatest con in Chicago, C2E2. I did all three days at C2E2 this year, and we were lucky enough to get a […]

C2E2 2015 Photoshoot: Genderbent Disney Villains

I was part of an AMAZING group Sunday at C2E2–a bunch of cosplay friends and I hit the floor as genderbent Disney villains. I’m going to do another cosplay spotlight of my genderbent Jafar (like I have for Shredder and Ozymandias), but I thought I would share most of the photos with you. Because I […]

Doctor Who Time Vortex Cupcake Recipe!

I love supporting Kickstarters created by other geek girls. I also love baking. And then eating everything that I bake. The first two points feed directly into my inspiration for this post–my desperate desire to use the geeky sprinkles I got from supporting The Geeky Hostess‘s Kickstarter last year! I was stuck in a lack-of-inspiration […]

Top Five: Essentials for a Cosplay Make-up Kit

I spent this past weekend at Project Cosawesome 2 (the somehow-even-more-amazing-was-that-even-possible follow-up to the first Project Cosawesome, which I attended in November). I brought two new costumes with me–Katana and Blink–and even though my body paint for Blink didn’t make it, my make-up was more extensive than it had ever been before. I mean, just look […]

DIY: Tips for Customizing Shoes

Customized shoes have been a big thing lately, whether it’s heels, sneakers, or flats. After a while of looking at and admiring all the shoes I see on Pinterest, Etsy, and DeviantArt, I decided to take my own small, tentative steps into the craft. I have already managed to learn a lot in a short […]

30 Days of Gaming: Best Soundtrack

It’s really difficult to write about the best game soundtrack when you’re hilariously and horrifically tone deaf, like I am. I’m going to give it the old college try, though. When I think about particularly effective soundtracks, two games come to mind. One of them, of course, is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. […]
