Hey there LJ! It's been too long again. I'm still alive and stuff. Bouncing around from shiny thing to shiny thing with very little direction - the usual.

Thought I'd share some pics of my most recent cosplay adventure. My brother contacted me a few weeks ago and said that he'd love to do a convention with me where we'd crossplay characters. Since I already had a Sally Ragdoll cosplay and we're about the same size, I thought it couldn't be too hard to pull a Jack Skellington together real quick. Rose City Comic Con was the next convention on my list and so I whipped something up in 2 weeks.

The jacket was the hardest part. I found a wonderful tailcoat at Hollywood Vintage here in Portland. It was old and worn, ripped up a bit on the inside, but workable and... they wanted 150 bucks for it because "vintage". I passed on that. Found a horrible band jacket on the clearance rack, straight out of a 1970s nightmare with gold tassels and glittery shit all over it and bought it for 20 bucks. Then, five hours with a seam ripper later, had the perfect base for a Jack Skellington tailcoat. I took off the buttons, painted one white and sewed it back on. I embellished the tails with felt and wire and then blanket stitched more felt together to make the bat bowtie. Got a black bodysuit and some white textile paint and painted a big triangle and some stripes on it. ... Anyway... It worked. I love how our cosplays turned out.

I'd been looking for an excuse to shave my head again for a while. This was it. See some pictures in the spoiler tags (which seem to work different than they used to??) They open up one after the other and require much clicking?? I've been away too long. Sorry!

Six days after the last time I shaved my head, my hair is already growing back in with full force! I can't stop petting my own head.

Will - No words.


Nico - Anyway. Moving on. Here's the picture you wanted. - shares file - I don't know why you needed a picture of what I'm wearing. You can see me right now.


Will - Nico, that's the same thing you ALWAYS wear.

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.
