Sundry Sunday :: Comicon 2017.

6 Mar

It’s been a convention weekend. I have pictures, but they’re just of me and drift partner ’cause while I compliment the heck out of people I’m getting worse and worse at asking for their pictures. Whatever.

Thursday, in which drift partner pulled out her Red Lantern getup and I… went as Columbia from last fall’s Rocky Horror production on Fox. I couldn’t help myself. Finally a chance to be Columbia without booty shorts! Which are fine for other people, but not for me.

(I will also brag: I spray-glittered the hat, hand-studded the bustier, and personally patched/drew on the back of the jacket [not seen in this picture] and the boots.)

Friday, we were blessed Princess Leia Organa and her gal pal Evaan Verlaine from the Princess Leia comics, which you should read if you haven’t.

Saturday, drift partner was the fabulous Jillian Holtzmann and I was big ol’ robot Aida of SHIELD, circa 4.08 when she got shot and had science gloves.

(Those science gloves, while definitely a first draft [I’d like to make them over, possibly from scratch], were a whole slew of fun modification adventures. And yes, there are tiny LED lights on there.)

And today, as before, Dany and Nym.

Anyway, it was nice and Vincent D’Onofrio and Evangeline Lilly and Terry Dodson of aforementioned Leia comic and Kate Leth of Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat are very nice. And we are now dead.

The world sucks a lot.
But meliorism, guys!

Sundry Sunday :: on adulthood (in limerick)

15 Jan

Sometimes all you can do is try
Even though you don’t really know why
There’s things you must do
Mysterious but true
Responsibility’s a lie.

Sundry Sunday :: Rose City 2016

11 Sep

Ming-Na Wen was lovely. Summer Glau was lovely (again). Everything was nice and fun and we are very tired but here are some pictures of drift partner and I.

Sneaky undercover beginning of Civil War Natasha and Wanda. Note the sunglasses and baseball hat, aka Avengers sneak kit.

Sundry Sunday :: dear friends

7 Aug

Look. I know things can be shitty. Let’s not beat around the bush about it.

But it’s been the kind of week where I have had to congratulate myself on (eventually) getting out of bed, so I’m going to congratulate all of you on the same thing.

It may not seem like much, but it’s something.

So good on you.

Sundry Sunday :: my urban dictionary: social triggers

17 Jul

Def.: Behaviors (and such) that, when one encounters them in another person, one bristles involuntarily.

Usage: When husbands speak to their wives certain ways (or men to women in general, honestly), regardless of context, or use certain language, it serves as a heavy social trigger for me.

Sundry Sunday :: my urban dictionary: heterosexual oblivion

19 Jun

Def.: The state of heterosexual people’s complete unawareness of anything serious pertaining to the problems that anyone not heterosexual might face or even the existence of anyone not heterosexual.

Usage: Heterosexual oblivion has saved my ladyqueer butt at least half as many times as it’s annoyed me.
