“My sorrow trickles down my arm in crimson tears. The wound is a red-tinted window that hides my pain and my body is a lock box of misery. And the key just happens to be in the shape of a razor.” I wrote this piece a little more than a year ago. It scares me sometimes when I look back at my writings because I … Continue reading Humanity in the Darkest Places
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

Anyways it sure is odd to no longer have 10 inches of hair dangling off my shoulder but -excuse the … Continue reading Wigs for Kids!
I initially wrote this letter yesterday morning hoping that someone knows someone who can get this to the Star Wars Brain Trust (Lucas, Abrams, K.Kennedy etc.) in time. But it’s as if the Force itself wielded the results in my favor. Hours later, they announced on StarWars.com that “We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher’s performance … Continue reading A Letter to the Void… in a Galaxy Far, Far Away…
Forgive the puffy eyes. I’ve been crying for hours. Shirt says “Don’t Call Me Princess”… Don’t call me General either. Those titles are for Leia. Princess Leia, General Organa. The most-kickass woman in the entire galaxy… and ours too. Continue reading Sabers Up for Carrie Fisher!!!
