Quick Cosplay Update! Or early happy halloween?

Just wanted to throw a quick update in the mix - beyond being very busy with my PhD, I've knocked up a few costumes this year! I thought I'd share this with you because being a research student doesn't call for nice outfits most of the time - I've spent an embarassing amount of the year in leggings and gym clothes. Ain't nobody got time for bein' fancy!
Early this year, I made the simple red dress worn by Number 6 in Battlestar Galactica. My favourite sci-fi series, and my favourite character! I also got to meet and take a photo with James Callis, who played the fabulous Dr. Gaius Baltar (dream. come. true.)

Very recently I made an outfit based on Breakfast Princess from Adventure Time, which was a blast to wear. If anybody thinks that show is just for kids I highly recommend you reconsider! I worked a
bit of a pinup look into my hair and makeup, which I think worked great!


The most recent costume I made was Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, worn this past weekend (WHEN I SHOULD HAVE BEEN WRITING MY ESSAY TT_TT ) I adore Sansa. Maybe because I know I would struggle just as much in her position, and I admire how she has grown from her mistakes. Haters can take the moon door. Lovers can share my lemon cakes.

Again, sorry for my busted posting schedule. I still read all your blogs regularly and comment when I can. But I'm happy to be doing something that I know I've worked really hard to get to, and I want to do my best to finish strong!
