these are my friends Breck (doctor who shirt) and Michael (kneeling). over the weekend they went to the Emerald City Comic Con. while there they got to meet some super awesome people…and GOT ENGAGED! i am so excited and happy for them! however, their families weren’t exactly on board. they want to celebrate it but don’t feel welcome to and feel like they should keep it quiet and “give it time” and hope the parents will come around. but they deserve celebration and acceptance. so i love and support every bit of this and i know tumblr will too.
[ I’M BACK. BRIEFLY! ECCC WAS AMAZEBALLS! All the Doctor Who shenanigans because of John Barrowman and Alex Kingston!!! Meeting raggedytimetraveler!!! *HUGS FOREVER* Running around like silly people and meeting a whole ton of Whovians. IT WAS JUST AWESOME AS HECK.
Got a pic with John Barrowman:
HE WAS SO NICE TO AMY! (@aepond) Who is our Sarah Jane. He took a genuine interest in her and it tickled us. He told her to whack mean people with her cane! xD Oh goodness, we cracked up at that. Took our angel ewokey, instead of a certain ginger bird because someone was slow. xD
BUT THAT’S OKAY, BECAUSE WE GOT A PICTURE WITH ALEX KINGSTON TOO!
thebluephonebox is our TARDIS and I loved her outfit this year! She had these super awesome contacts and the bright orange hair was a gorgeous contrast to the blue!!! <3 4ever-a-nerd is our Eleven and HOLY SHIT. Alex totally fawned over him, which of course is why he has that adorable grin on his face. :D :D :D They did the hand fasting bit with his bowtie from the show WHICH SHE HELPED UNTIE FROM HIS NECK!!!! for the picture!!! SHE WAS RECITING HER LINES FROM THE EPISODE TOO! So this kinda makes the picture look like a wedding one!!! XD IT WAS SO AWESOME!!! And of course ya’ll know gingerten, and finally me and my shortness over there. xD SHE WAS SO NICE AND AWESOME a;lsdkfj;laksjd;lkj!!!
AND I MET SO MANY NEW FRIENDS THERE!!! UGH. SO MANY. :D I’m glad you found me technicolourtrickstercosplay!!!! :D :D :D :D I’m not hard to find really. xD I love knowing there’s fans of allllllll ages in this fandom. Warms my heart when the younger Whovians get in on the cosplay shenanigans!!! ^.~
And of course, as always seafoam-photography/ ewokey always has the best pictures on her camera!!! <3 Can you spy a looksgoodinsuits and imliterallytoocoolforschool? They hung out on Sunday during all the Doctor Who shenanigans!!! YAY FOR MEETING TUMBLR FRIENDS. ( I’m sooooooo sorry I confused you Zach. <3 I totally love giving internet friends real hugs when I meet them… but I forget that my face is not always known!!! ^.^;;;;; AND EVERYONE WAS RIGHT. YOU GIVE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING HUGS. I’M SO SAD I DIDN’T GET TO HANG AROUND FOR DINNER ON SUNDAY!!!! D:)
And Pixie and Matt are the awesome Empty Child Rose and Nine down there on the end. Ugh, they are such awesome people. :D :D :D Did some fun photoshooting with us that I’ll hopefully get pictures for later. ;D SO MANY FUN IDEAS. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THOSE!!!! :D
Scored the first 5 issues of Tens most recent comic book adventure at COVER PRICE. I asked really nicely if a dealer had any of the newer comics for Doctor Who and the next day they brought them in for me!!! I was so stoked! Also got alicexz ‘s cover for Eleven’s comic!!! I was excited to get that for cover price. That comic shop, Corner Comics, I gotta find it so I can go there. xD THEY WERE SO NICE!
So yes, I survived 4 days of HOLY SHIT WALKING EVERYWHERE and excitement and adventure. :D I’m here today and tomorrow in between doing laundry and stuff for Sakura Con, which I’m working at. Might take a bag and have my writing stuff in it so I can chill and write when I can. I’m only really going to work it so I can see people. Not too interested in doing stuff, besides maybe Rockband at 6am in the morning. xD LOL!
For now, I need to post a slew of replies which have been sitting in my notebook since like last weekend. xD I MISS ALL OF YOU SO MUCH! <3 Cannot wait for next Monday. Two glorious days off, and TONS of time to catch up in between wedding prep and packing. ;D ]
Alex Kingston called us an explosion of color and Anthony Mackie was an absolute delight. He complimented us on our costumes, suggested we hold hands, and then went on to say “I’m black. She’s white. I’m black. She’s purple.” Hayley Atwell is such a delightful woman and HOLY SHIT STAN LEE! Totally worth it.
This is what the first page of my prop River diary now looks like. It’s not the best prop, because I just printed out the cover and taped it to a thin blank journal I bought from a bookstore years ago. But, it means a lot to me, because when I originally made it, it was so I could carry it around and write personal fiction in it as if I was traveling with the Doctor. I don’t carry it anymore (except for cosplay) and I will never let anyone else read it, but I brought it for Alex to sign, and she even wrote a message for me! I’m close to tears every time I think about it…
