Space City Sabers Event at Barbara Bush Library

It was an event like this at Space City Comic Con when I found my saber family. I came in as someone who was “just interested” and ended up being a regular. And a few months after that at Amazing Houston, I helped teach a big crowd and loved every moment of it. Alas, we were not invited this year at ComicPalooza but this smaller … Continue reading Space City Sabers Event at Barbara Bush Library

Getting my (video)Game On: Battlefront II Rey Cosplay

I’m not even gonna lie at this point… I got super-excited to see this picture. I didn’t care if there was ever going to be a CRL for this costume, but I’m making it anyway. I approached this project saying, “meh, do what you want and just make it look good” (since I haven’t been feeling well this past few weeks) to “OMG I need … Continue reading Getting my (video)Game On: Battlefront II Rey Cosplay

Raeh Doll

I’m not gonna lie. Ever since I started cosplaying as Rey, I’ve always wanted a X-Wing Pilot Doll. To be honest, it looks like a voodoo doll. But I can imagine little Rey just scavenging what she can and, probably because of her lack of sewing skills, she had to use found materials.  I’m sorta lucky enough to have materials on-hand except for the orange … Continue reading Raeh Doll

PHX Comicon Arrest 

http://www.abc15.com/news/crime/update-armed-man-arrested-at-phx-comicon-after-struggling-with-police (based on a Facebook post) Something like this hits really hard when you know people (from your own family, Legion family and cosplaying community family) that could’ve been victims in a situation. And it’s an added blow when it’s one of your childhood heroes. 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 

Vanity Fair Covers

Who is squeeing like a little fangirl? THIS GIRL! Don’t you dare judge me! Picture from Vanity Fair Of course, I cried a little when I saw The General Leia cover. 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

Mulan Mashup Cosplay

Don’t get any ideas now! I am NOT doing an actual Star Wars + Mulan Mashup (well at least not anytime soon) for a Comic Con or something. Just for pictures. And I would probably ask the photographer if I can have at least one mashup picture with me carrying a lightsaber instead of a sword. Just because. My friend Cindy invited (enticed) me to join her Princess Fairy … Continue reading Mulan Mashup Cosplay

Free Comic Book Day at the MarqE

I woke up today unsure on what costume I wanted to put on. Should I play it safe as Jyn or do I want to torture myself and have a panic attack while turning over the whole house just to find my missing Rey belt? Instead, I decided to go for the day’s theme: Revenge of the Sith. Yes, yes, I know! Kylo Ren technically isn’t a … Continue reading Free Comic Book Day at the MarqE
