Hello there LJ!

I've been so freaking busy it isn't even funny. Real life can really bite. Anyway, I don't feel like talking about it because it's all annoying and stuff and I'm grateful it is what it is and isn't like serious severe shit, yanno?

I just got back from a convention. Newcon PDX. This was my first time going to a con specifically to cosplay. It wasn't bad at all, but the photographer I had booked a shoot with had a death in the family the day before day 0 and had to cancel, so that sucked. I mean, for her. I could've had nice shiny photos taken by the convention photogs at the photo booth, but I really wasn't feeling it. ... Maybe next time. Instead I got hallway shots from fellow con-goers and that's good enough for me.

Thought I'd share them with you. If anybody wants to see what the fuck Mab is off doing when she's supposed to be finishing her WiPs... >.>

My daughter cosplayed with me as characters from Steven Universe and that was really fun. I met up with my brother and his good friend on the second day and spent the last day just walking around and talking to random people. (my favorite pastime when I'm in the mood for it).
[ profile] slr2moons was going to come with us but real life is an even bigger bitch in her life than in mine right now so it was understandable why she couldn't.

These are the characters Gwen (my daughter) and I were cosplaying from SU.

The Peridot on the left is Gwen.





Then I cosplayed Nico di Angelo from Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series.



And I cosplayed Hearthstone from Rick Riordan's Magnus Chase series too. A super sweet deaf elf with his fashion-loving dwarf boyfriend, Blitzen. Only, I haven't yet found a cosplayer to be Blitzen. One day - this will happen.


After overdoing the rune magic, Hearth signs, 'washing machine'?

And lastly ... My daughter cosplayed a character from Homestuck.


Anyway, if you made it through all of that, what do you think? shut up, mab and stick to writing


I hope you are well f-list. I'm sorry I'm so absent.

Thanks! Gearing up to cosplay Jasper got me motivated again to buff up at the gym. The fandom calls her the big buff cheeto puff and peridot the smol green dorito... I don't even care if it takes cosplaying a cartoon character to get me serious about fitness. Whatever works! XD

Looks fun, though I don't know most of the characters, so I think I'd be pretty lost at the convention! I'm impressed you were so many different ones, and had such different vibes for each. I want to know more about the sweet signing elf.

Thank you!

I very much recommend learning more about Hearthstone. He's from the new series by Rick Riordan, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. It's going to be a trilogy and the first book, The Sword of Summer came out in October.

The series does tie in with the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series, but it does effectively stand alone. Also, Loki and Thor and the other Norse gods are in there being all godlike and stuff. It's fun.

throws some fan art links at you: by fuocogo, by anemicloser, by cha-chi-san, by brunagonda

and if that doesn't convince you, then a snippet where Hearth is introduced in the book might:

You know how when you see somebody out of context and it takes you a second to recognize them? In Leif Erikson’s shadow stood a tall pale man in a black leather jacket, black motorcycle pants, and pointy-toed boots. His short spiky hair was so blond it was almost white. His only dash of color was a striped red-and-white scarf wrapped around his neck and spilling off his shoulders like a melted candy cane.

If I didn’t know him, I might’ve guessed he was cosplaying some anime character. But I did know him. It was Hearth, my fellow homeless dude and surrogate “mom.”

*stops talking before scaring you off with my obsessions*

The costumes are great, but all I can think is: HOLY SHIT, YOU'RE SO SKINNY!

Bravo dear! You worked hard and it has paid off. (not that you didn't look great before, but you look really great now!)

lol! Thanks!

Really it's kinda my biology. When I get pregnant, my body balloons and it hangs onto all the extra until I'm no longer lactating. My kid is four and a half and still wants 'boobs' a couple times a week. But my hormone levels are down to the point at least the rest of me can deflate again. XD

I am working my ass off at the gym too, cause I can't be a buff cartoon character without muscles. ... so I am glad to hear my effort is noticeable. XD

Wow, Mab, such lovely pictures. You and your family have all so wonderful warm eyes and you all looked great. Aren't you a handsome Nico?

Thank you! If I was wearing my Nico duds, I'd be a blushy Nico from your compliment. XD

Hey Mab! So many different characters and you both look great! It looks like you and your daughter had a lot of fun. I agree with Nia, you are a very handsome Nico!

Thank you! We did have a great time. I'm really glad my kids *want* to hang out with me sometimes. XD It's so much easier than only getting to talk to them when they're captives in my car (on the way to and from school).

You look fantastic!

Ugh, I've been on hold for ages for the Magnus Chase book at my library!

Thank you!

I will totally loan you MCGA if you'd like. I know there's a way to do it via kindle. Let me know if you'd like to try. I've actually been needing an excuse to figure out how the loaning books things works.

I may just take you up on that! I'm finishing up a few books from the library at the moment, but I may poke you when I have free time. :D

My god you look good! :) And it's great you can share co-playing with your daughter, it looks like so much fun!

It really was fun. Only problem is now I've got post-con doldrums. :P Fun times make the real world that much gloomier to return to.

Looks like you had a great time! And all the costumes rock!
Looking forward to getting some gabbing time with you soon so you can tell me all about the con. :)

Thanks! I really did have fun.

I'm looking forward to gabbing time too. I think I'll make the 30th at the Horse Brass a priority. What time are you gonna be there?

I think 9:30 is our projected arrival time.

What great pictures, both you and your daughter and even your brother, great work! You all look awesome, and it looks like you had a great time.

And btw, your brother and his friend, that is Deadpool but the other is not the Flash, it's Green Lantern :P

Thank you!

And.. roflmao! You're right. See how much I pay attention to superheroes? Not much...

They had brought costumes of a couple of Halo characters, the flash, green lantern, deadpool, spiderman, and Cats.. and I just get all mixed up.
