Me, too lazy to cosplay? WHAAAAT? Yeah, I initially bought the Jyn costume as the costume I was going to keep in the back of my car when I have a Cosplaying event to go to right after work (and obviously a costume that doesn’t require me to leave a lightsaber in my trunk!) or for days I just don’t want to carry a lightsaber (I’m such … Continue reading Another Cosplay, for when I’m too Lazy to Cosplay
Two weeks ago during saber class at Space City Sabers, the instructor had us create our own fighting choreography. I partnered with my friend Cindy who’s only been to a few classes but she sure can pick up choreography fast. I’m gonna say it again: it pays to have a background in dance sometimes. It was probably the craziest idea to practice dual-wield with a partner … Continue reading Dual Wielding a Lightsaber

I met Jesus G. last december at an advanced screening of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, just a few days before my birthday. We were both invited … Continue reading #MathewSterlingisnotarealPunisher

It hits EXTRA HARD when you find yourself thinking “this could’ve been the Con you were at”… or have to … Continue reading PHX Comicon Arrest

And her picture with Billie Lourde. *bawls like a little baby, then composes self* Then did y’all see Rose’s costume? I don’t know whether I am happy about the jumpsuit, but I guess I … Continue reading Vanity Fair Covers
I’ve been collecting Star Wars patches for a while now and I haven’t quite found a perfect vest to house them all in. I was going to revive an old denim vest but, unfortunately, it’s too short for the purpose. And wouldn’t I want a bigger canvas to work on anyway? I have a few jackets I wanted to sacrifice but since I live in Houston, I don’t want … Continue reading Patch Vest Came In
Congratulations to my nephew, Robert who just graduated today. I would have posted a better picture of him but he’s a shy one so I’ll respect him and not embarrass him with show a closeup. Hahaha… May the Force be with you in all you do! Continue reading Congratulations Robert!
