Ten years ago, I had fun by stepping into the shoes of an inspirational Kiwi sword-wielder, and I dreamed of heroism and adventure.
Now, I make my own path.
Thank you for the reminder, Facebook memories!
This was me at Capital Pride last year. I was walking around dressed as Xena, posing for photos and giving hugs, when I noticed these religious zealots with their microphones and signs spewing their messages of hatred. I always ignore them, but I noticed they were making some people in the crowd visibly upset. A few people were even crying. I couldn’t stand by and let that happen. I hopped over his little chained off section and stood next to him. He immediately turned and began yelling at me and telling the crowd I was going to hell. So I just kept smiling and making funny faces. He eventually gave up yelling to me and about me and tried to go back to taunting people. But no one was taking him seriously with me standing there posing. I’m sure they will be there again this year….and so will I. :-)
(Still belated) post of our second day at Emerald City Comicon, April 10, 2016!
This was my favourite day, because it was our Doctor Who day! I had enormous fun as Ten (my favourite cosplay), Pauli was Donna Noble (blimey, she can shout!), Emmy does an uncanny Amy Pond, and Mattie shaved his face to join the fun as Eleven! And we met a Captain Jack who got really into character…
And we met a bunch of other beloved characters too, such as the gang from Portal, She-Ra, Xena, Rufio, ad Beetlejuice!
But the best part was the life-size Dalek we spotted on the sidewalk as we were leaving for the day. The perfect way to end the day.
I was so excited to see Natalie Robinson and her dad after the Rebels panel at SWCO! I had been following their Sabine build for a while over and Twitter, and it was just as amazing in real life. I wasn’t proud, I was impressed!
Natalie won first place in the 13 and under Cosplay Competition!
NO SERIOUSLY ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL (PART TWO)
