I won "Best in Show" and a memorial award at Anime Mid Atlantic's cosplay fashion show this past weekend! I've become addicted to entering cosplay contests and now that I'm officially a journeyman I want to step up my game.

So two good things happened yesterday:

1. Made it out in public presenting actually around other people who didn't know. Reasonably certain I didn't get clocked by most of them. I mean yes it was a costume rather than normal clothes but a step is still a step.

2. Got back to find the letter from the GIC saying I was officially on the waiting list sat on my mail pile.

I think we're cooking now.

My wigs for Vaporeon and Lenalee Lee came in and they're absolutely perfect! All I have to do is make the ears/tail for Vaporeon and then find a pair of red pumps for Lenalee and I'll be set.

Admittedly a very tiresome trip out to Toronto, but seeing a dude walking with his cat on his shoulder was pretty cute.

Small little things: This past Friday was my 16th wedding anniversary, and to celebrate, us and the kids spent the last few days up in Lake George, NY. First time we'd been up there in 3 years where it was once an annual staple of my wife's family. The kids really enjoyed it, and there's still more to do the next time we go back, whenever that should be.

Finally finished my batch of white bats! Still left to do, the batches of black, teal blue, orange and my minky lavender ones....

I have gathered almost everything for my upcoming project! Yay! I know it's to early to celebrate because I have got one final exam to take this Thursday, but then I can finally craft! Please keep your fingers crossed for me!

I found LOTS of photos of my cosplays at Comic Con. This normally NEVER happens!

My old college has TONS of job openings and I applied for two this week. And I had an interview yesterday with a local non-profit. Let's see how this all goes.

I got my new skates yesterday, put in five hours of ice time and they feel great.

I can't believe I was worried about a rough break in process; I'm so happy, everything just feels right when I'm on the ice.

Some guy yesterday randomly told me I looked like Noctis from FFXV and then gave me a high five. Best part is I was actually casually going for that, so that was awesome.
Also I love looking in the anime/manga section of this site and seeing, like, OHSHC, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, Soul Eater, etc. as the series with their own sections. It's like a portal back to 2007-ish and I love it.

^ I keep feeling like there's a 2007 revival happening too. Code Geass is getting a new series, the live action FMA, Naruto is (somehow?) still alive and well...??

Otakon was stellar. The FLOW concert was so so so much fun, and I saw so many friends, and got some great shots of the cosplays I did wear. Cannot freaking wait to get to another con!

In other news, I had a second round interview with a company I'm really excited about yesterday. (Though I guess I should say "second round" lightly; this was a triple header technical interview with 90 minutes of problem solving, whoooo.) Crossing fingers that it was good enough, because I'd be so stoked to work for these guys.

I feel the same way

As for me I got a pretty good birthday haul this year (well I always do haha. My family knows my tastes well). This birthday has been the most relaxing in awhile. I also consider the Venus wig I bought being a gift from me to...myself xD. And Fan Expo - so glad this is happening. Much better than moping around at home. Plus an upcoming trip to my Uncle's house will add to the winding down before heading back (sorry for the school saga...school is just really toxic for me. But I know I'm not the only one.)

Was given a PS4 for my birthday yesterday, now I can finally play Horizon Zero Dawn! It will make cosplaying Aloy easier since I think I want to do one of her armors.

Got my American Duchess boots for historical costuming and OMFG I LOVE THEM. They were expensive but they're beautifully made, fit great and are amazingly comfortable! Usually my feet reject heels like I were allergic, I put these on and an hour later took a half hour walk on pavement/sidewalk, with a backpack of stuff for half of it. Not a bit of soreness in my feet, just a little irritating me around the edges where I need thicker socks to cushion my bony ankles, and they're not even broken in yet! Not regretting the $300 investment at all. (Would have been $250 including the shipping and our crappy exchange rate... but customs fees, suddenly! ARGH.) I'll be able to use these for every Victorian outfit I make for many years. Hell, and whenever I feel like fancy boots, if I have the time to put them on.
(I bought these beauties! http://www.american-duchess.com/inde...product_id=238 )

So I've started joining my friend on her Twitch stream doing some cosplay work and it's actually been pretty fun. And yesterday's stream Evil Ted came and chatted with us! We completely fangirled out! We are huge fans and either came off as annoying or endearing (I'm hoping endearing).
