Actually, this will probably be most - if not all - of my Con Haul for all three days, because I... Spent way too much money already, and need to, you know, eat today and tomorrow.

My favorite item is a "Blue Zircon: Space Attorney" shirt. It is the best. 

I also picked up the Ruby and Sapphire arc of Pokemon Adventures. It's so good, and I wish I'd given Pokemon Adventures a chance way sooner! I bought a set of DnD dice with a green-to-black ombre coloration, too! A few other things here and there, such as two really nice full-art Pokemon cards (Mallow and Hau! <3) and these adorable Amethyst Appreciation Zines by an artist by the name of Grace Kraft.

Today, I'm Guzma-ing it up, and looking forward to a few really excellent-sounding panels!

Headed out for my state Con today! I'm at the home of the friend I'll be sharing a hotel room with, helping her finish up her cosplay where I can be of help, and later we'll pick-up our badges and check into the hotel!

I'm so excited! My lineup for cosplay is as follows: Guzma from Pokemon Sun/Moon on Friday, Amethyst from Steven Universe Saturday, and while I'm not cosplaying on Sunday, I will be wearing my classic-style Harley Quinn dress.

If anyone is on Instagram and wants to see cosplay pics, check out @imaginationinstitute! It's 99% doll photography, but once a year the cosplay pics start up again! If you're not on Instagram but curious about the cosplays, let me know. I'd love to show off, haha.

I've scheduled in the times for getting autographs from Shelby Rabara, Michaela Dietz, and Jerome Flynn, as well as found the panels I'm interested in checking out. I'm also hoping to pick up my own set of DnD dice while I'm browsing the vendors' tables.

I slipped back into not keeping up with my journal or reading page. Oops. I also haven't been writing.

Well, okay, that's actually untrue! I've been writing, but it's all been in forum rp. I'm having fun, but not getting any of my owed fills or my tables done. Now, it just doesn't make sense to double my time for writing, so I'll have to balance out what I'm writing in the time I do have.

I can't believe how quickly we're wrapping up May and heading into June! I know we have about half of May left, but the first half felt like such a blur. While I hate to see spring leave so quickly - we didn't have any spring weather here in April; not really - I'm so excited for this summer! Connecticon is going to be great, and I'm also 100% ready for Descendants 2 to come out already. (Seriously, this franchise is the best ridiculous, campy guilty pleasure I've indulged in in a long, long time.)

Also, so the real world is sure... I mean... That's... Happening.
dolewhip: (Pokemon: Spring)
I'm a fall (technically, summer!) baby, but spring is definitely my favorite season! And though the advertising world is clearly ready to jump right ahead to summer, I am staying right here in springtime, baby.

Crocuses, chipmunks, and birdsongs, oh my! I love this time of year! And it's a slightly chilly, 'late winter in Florida'* type of Spring most days so far, which I'm loving. I run a little warm, so I love when it's a bit cold out. The cold never bothered me, anyway.

My cosplays for Amethyst (Steven Universe) and Guzma (Pokemon Sun and Moon) are complete in the sense that all my purchases have been made for each! Just waiting on a handful of Etsy deliveries now... I also have the rest of the Steven Universe Funko Pops arriving today, oops. (You all might get pictures.)

But I love that I'm making decent money, and can buy little things on the side while still saving for my apartment! And speaking of making decent money... I have applied for a new job! I'm really, really hoping to get this receptionist position: the hours are consistent, I already know and like the people I'd be working with, and I'd be so good at it; I really believe that! Please hope for the best for me, guys!

*I do not live in Florida, I just used to be there in February with some frequency.

Guys, it's been a long, cold, lonely winter - but here comes the sun. No, literally: it's finally starting to warm up outside! There seems to be a bit of a jump from winter to summer weather, which I don't like - spring is my favorite season - but warmth is warmth, and I'll take what I can get.

Life has been... Strange, but getting good. Family stuff. Some ties have been all but severed, and some bonds have been made stronger, but all in all, I can say everything is for the best.

There's an upcoming Pokemon Online Competition that I'll be eagerly signing up for! I believe my team is prepared. (The search for a Black Sludge would have been the biggest pain ever if I didn't find two shinies while going through Grimers!)

I realized yesterday - while browsing Etsy - that I desperately want to cosplay as Guzma (fem!Guzma, I suppose) in addition to Amethyst for the convention in July... I'll have to figure out if I can swing that. If I can, I think I'll use one pair of white sneakers for both Guzma and Amethyst, instead of getting the white booties for Amethyst. Shoes are so expensive.

Shelby Rabara is going to be at the convention I'm attending in July! I'm just as excited as can be about that!
