Bee (and Puppycat) Closet Cosplay

It’s been a while since I fell head over heels obsessed with something and then Bee and Puppycat came into my life.  The best part is that Bee’s outfits can be easily translated into the real world. I think the folks over at Cartoon Hangover are aware of this and released an official Bee sweater… which of course I bought.… Read more →

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl is one of those books I wanted so bad to love and treasure but was constantly annoyed with. I’m not used to writing a negative review on a book, so bear with me. The premise of the book really appealed to me so I bought it off the shelf from Barnes and Nobles. I’m a thrift shopper so it’s… Read more →

PAX South

PAX South took place in San Antonio, Texas which was pretty darn convenient for me since I only live two hours away. It was 3 days of gaming, meeting new friends, wearing fun outfits, and did I mention gaming? Dreadnought was hands down my favorite game. You’re a spaceship destroying OTHER spaceships in SPACE. (It’s actually a little more complicated than… Read more →

DashCon

The Blacklist #1: Dashcon/Emoti-Con

Dashcon. What a trainwreck that was. From an “emergency fundraiser” to keep the convention going to guest backing out for not getting paid. While they have been dissolved, two of the three owners have created a new convention called Emoti-Con. Considering the owners, I would be weary about attending it. Sources and Reviews of the Event: Dashcon’s Tumblr Dashcon Dissolved. Emoti-Con… Read more →

World Book Night

Once a year I participate in World Book Night and 2014 marks my third time. Volunteers are given 20 copies of a book to pass out to people. The focus is to get folks who are light readers and turn them into casual readers. Usually, I like heading to the capital building in Austin, Texas but my schedule did not… Read more →

For Carmen

When I moved my site over I had planned to have new content as much as possible. This month escape from me but there was a reason. My Aunt Carmen passed away this month and it hit me hard. Earlier this year I even lost my grandfather but it was my Aunt who I was really close to. After my… Read more →
