Historic Oakwood was a home to the prominent members of Raleigh’s society during the 19th century. It is a neighbourhood in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina and it is popular for its Historic Oakwood Cemetery, its many Victorian houses and its location close to the Mordecai Plantation Manor.  Its Victorian-era architectural styles include Second Empire, Queen Anne, Italianate, and later infill brought the bungalow, the American Foursquare, American Craftsman style, and the Minimal Traditional house to the area.  

It is also known for its Christmas Candlelight Tour, which opens private historic residences to the public, and the Garden Tour, which allows the public to see the vast gardens worked on by the Oakwood Gardening Club.

Let’s hit downtown again tonight!

Made with Instagram

Some shots of my Ami Aiba cosplay from Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth! Most of the costume is made out of cotton interlock (T-shirt cotton) so it is soooo comfortable to wear! The glove is a leather-look spandex, and fun fact - I can operate a touch-screen while I’m wearing it! Probably my favorite feature of the cosplay, lol. 

Also, yes I am playing Ingress, a game about cyber hacking, while dressed as a character who is a cyber hacker. Meta! I had a lot of fun walking around downtown Raleigh on the Saturday morning of Animazement just hacking and capturing portals.
