Gear and Cheer: Coscom's Holiday Gifts!

Happy holidays, everyone!

Since it's Christmas Day, I'm sure a lot of us just opened up gifts from family and friends (or will be doing so soon).

The question is, what did you give and get this year? Share and show off all your awesome new stuff! Photos are encouraged!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, COS.COM!! <3



I'm so happy, my brother liked the Xiao Mei plushie I've been working on all week! XD
And my mom and stepdad liked the matching pants I made them.
Now that I'm done with Xiao Mei, I just have to make 3 Tardis plushies/pillows for my 3 Doctor Who-loving best friends and a Hello Kitty hat for my non-Doctor Who-loving best friend.
I'm excited!

Haha, my mom got me Cinderella on blu-ray and DVD. And fabric! And rhinestones! I love sparkly things! And my dad preordered Hyrule Historia for me, and got me elf ears and a ginormously long wig for Yui!

Remind me to do pre-order it too!

This Christmas, I feel like I was basically 12 years old. I got a bunch of things under the 'toy' category-- a couple games (Hanafuda tiles and Abalone), a super fluffy owl plushie (about 1 ft tall) that doubles as speakers, and chocolate. Mmm.

Also got a really neat rainbow LED poi set, which was actually inspired by another cosplayer! For those of you who aren't familiar, here's the wikipedia page. Sooo excited to try them when it gets dark!

Btw, those socks (the ones that aren't Pens hockey) are the BEST THING EVER! Everyone should have a pair or three. They're aloe infused and super super soft...it feels like you're walking on clouds. You can get them at Target.

I got clothes, more clothes, some clothes and some more clothes... also some clothes.
I'm currently wearing a rather fecthing scandinavian cardigan.
I also have some Pac Man cufflinks which is nice, if only I had some double cuffed shirts to go with it...
I've got XCOM on PC which I can't actually play till I go back to my uni home.
Martha Marcy May Marlene on dvd. You've probably never heard of it.
And a list of hipster places to visit in New York next year, because yes I have become a parody of myself.

EDIT: Oh and a batman usb stick. When I plug it in it even comes up as BATMAN on the computer.
