Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.

I saw you cosplayed Dr. Mrs. The Monarch a while back. you looked AWESOME. What inspired you to cosplay her?

The Venture Bros. is, hands down, my favorite show. Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick are fucking geniuses. I usually tend to cosplay only things that I am hardcore into and want to pay homage to, but there’s a story behind this one.

Originally, my friend and I were supposed to gather up a Metalocalypse group and go as Dethklok ladies for the Adult Swim events at SDCC. Those plans fell apart as the girls couldn’t get passes, but I, through magical powers unforseen to the naked eye, managed to get my pass. 

I didn’t want to go as Skwisgaar alone. Nobody wants to cosplay a group alone. So, I changed it. I scrapped the Metalocalypse idea altogether. I wanted to pick someone that could be cosplayed solo…and someone that I knew would work for me. I’ve always found Dr. Mrs. to be the single funniest character in VB for her one liners and, of course, that voice. Plus, I love her design. Thus, my Dr. Mrs. cosplay was born.

I plan on revisiting the costume to update small bits and pieces like the boots and the wig. Maybe I’ll wear it to SDCC again one year. Probably not. It’ll probably go to the other conventons that I attend.

Let me not be weak and tell others how bleeding I am internally; how day by day it drips, and gathers, and congeals.
