"Have you ever asked yourself, do monsters make war, or does war make monsters?"

These books, whatever their appearance, had a deeply indescribable impact on me. Not only did they serve as one of the big foundational forces of my wanting to be a writer (and perhaps one of the big reasons I'm so driven to having blue hair), they challenged my albeit still childish worldview in a fair few significant ways. I'm overdue for a reread, even though I know it'll wreck me, and Karou/Madrigal has been on my mind lately, though I'm not sure why.

(I'm also unsure as to the iffy-factor of the Hamsa as used in the book, but I'm choosing to lean on my respect for the origin and the meaning of the symbol as one of protection and strength in multiple faith-based and -inspired structures.)

Random inaccurate closet cosplay selfie greatly edited to make me look like the dreamy teenager I haven't been in a long time, because daylight savings week has been a bitch.

Yo.
I'm not dead (mostly).
Just feeling nostalgic and having a missing cosplay moment, and it's feeling like a Webhead kind of Wednesday.
I would high-key be dying in this today, buuuuuuut I still kinda want to be wearing it.

Hope all of my people are doing OK. Thinking of you. πŸ’™

"I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!"
In honor of May the 4th - finally an actual Star Wars thing.
I list Episode I as one of the formative pieces of media in my appreciation and adoration for costumery and makeup. Because honestly. Queen Amidala was, and remains, iconic as hell and little me LOVED every single scene for how badass she was, and every single costume. I have a special love for the battle decoy dress because I was given a doll version of Amidala in that dress as a kiddo for one Christmas. So when I saw it on website on super-clearance...I had to.
❀
The dress itself has a very 50s shape, and I rolled with that for the hair and jewelry.
May the force be with you, nerds.

Went looking for something along my archives and salvaged this from a boomerang from pre-PAX several years ago. I recently lost everything I had saved on my phone, so not that I was posting regularly before anyhow, but... desperate times, I guess?
Anywho. It's spring, and spring means Mercy, I suppose!

The socials are reminding me that this was ECCC six years ago.
Where does the time even go?
I still want to finish up and shoot this look properly someday.

Valar dohaeris.
βš”
So, listen. I have a very complicated relationship with the GoT world, but we don't need to get into that here. The only important thing of note is that this came about because of a writing project and because I wanted to do another battle makeup test. It's really subtle, which I'm happy with, but hard to photograph. Less happy. I am also not at all the right person to portray my Targaryen OC because she is not, in fact, based on myself and I don't like my own face for her even though I was in that headspace. SO. We can say instead that this is a depiction of Visenya instead (even though there's no red to be seen on purpose... it's fine).

I did a test fitting of the dress I bought...literal years ago now when I had the intent of doing a full on ACoTaR cosplay. I love the dress more than expected and the wig is the right color now (though you can't see that clearly here). I may still do this shoot someday in the spring or somewhere with pretty outdoor twinkle lights (I said what I said) - I'd like to wear this sucker for something because it IS pretty (and hella flattering).
We shall see!

So... listen. I LOVE everything about this photo. It's high-key my favorite from the shoot and EXACTLY what I wanted... and I despise what's going on with my face. A combination of holding up the broom (which was a weirdly heavy costume one), balancing precariously on the edge of a stool so I could position my feet right, and doing my own cape-flipping and I apparently could not manage all that without looking like I'm weight-lifting - badly.
But...I couldn't not post it. Because it's so good in every other way and so treat. Pardon my stupid concentration face and enjoy the rest.
🧹
I am determined to have a redo someday. Perhaps with an assistant to help with the cape action.

I don't love how my face looks in these shots, but ugh I love this cosplay. I wish I had had the means to make it real sooner before I stepped so far back from the cosplay world, but such is life sometimes.
I'll wear it again - this I swear.
