Next con: Emerald City Comic Con 2018
This time next week I will be in Seattle, with people I love and admire, being big kids, playing pretend, and having a good time. I've been looking forward to this convention, possibly more than any other convention ever because of the crowd.
I've given myself a little list of reminders....
1. Be kind to EVERYONE
2. Be less self conscious
3. Live in my imagination more
Life and the con crunch to finish projects has been stressful. But here shortly, there is this beautiful opportunity to remember why I do this and why it's so important.
Have you given yourself a list too?
If you have plans to be at ECCC and see me, please stop to say hello, shake my hand, give me a hug, and let me know how you are. 😁😊😄😍

Cape is 90% finished. Got the 9 realms glyph patterned and loaded into my Cricut for cutting only to forget to resize the cut to the right size. I only had enough vinyl of the base layer for one cut and so I will have to wait until tomorrow when I can pick up another roll. 😣😣😣 the body suit has undergone a gauntlet of binge watching Supernatural to remove the hex, but it's as off as I can make it at this point . What has remained will get fabric painted to blend better with the grey.
The end is so close I can taste it!

I know I've been pretty quiet lately friends. Some major life changes occuring at the same time as con crunch have the stress levels a little higher than usual. But thankfully, my awesome friends at Team Totoro dragged my ads out of the house and we got some shit done!
Boots are complete! We have about 70% of the hex pattern torn off because reasons, and I'm in line to get the gloves made today. After that it is just adding a few closures and some little bit of hand sewing! Holy crap I'm almost finished!
