So, I was at our annual family holiday dinner, and I was just kind of eating my food and listening to the adults talk about politics and stuff, and then all of a sudden my grandfather (who was sitting across from me) exclaims, “Girl, whose class ring is that around your neck?” (Because I never got a class ring, so I guess he assumed it was my boyfriend’s or something.)
I looked down, because I’d kind of forgotten what necklace I was wearing.
It was the replica of Jace’s Morgenstern ring that I bought at Hot Topic two and a half years ago when the City Of Bones movie first came out.
I had to explain to my grandparents (and my mom and aunt, who had now dropped their conversation to listen to ours), at Christmas dinner, that no, I didn’t finally get a boyfriend, I’m just a huge nerd who bought her favorite book character’s family ring and had to put it on a necklace because it was too big for my tiny fingers.
I love this part of Origins so much that I just had to play with one of my recent Warden portraits in photoshop and try to recapture the mood and feeling of that scene. I made this in 1-2 hours so it’s not my best work, but I’m pleased!
A little late in the game but here’s the report on C2E2:
Highlights included getting attacked by the lovely Molly Quinn who did vocal work for The Mortal Instruments audio books.
I don’t think there is any honor bigger to a cosplayer than being told by someone directly involved with their fandom that they should recast the movies because your cosplay is so good. I made her cry and that made me cry and lALSKDJFKLASDJF best thing ever.
ALSO so so happy to be touching the lives of so many young girls who are fans of the books. About 300 13 year old girls approached me and asked me for pictures and that is just so so so wonderful.
