Future stormpooper!!!

Ahh progress! Feeling accomplished today! I finished the apron that is the main piece of my 1950s stormtrooper housewife outfit. I'll definitely post more pics of the finished outfit once I have it all together! In other news, my unborn is trying to make me blind. I now have an astigmatism in BOTH eyes (where before it was only one) and the original eye has gotten substantially worse. Now I'm trying to get used to feeling of the thicker and larger contacts my poor blind self requires. Wah wah.

Dragoncon is a-coming!!

So I'm finally making real progress on my cosplayed for dragon con this year! Talk about procrastination, less than two weeks to the con and I have exactly zero full cosplays completed. The scheduled lineup is: Day one: vintage 50's housewife stormtrooper? This May end up on another day, my awesome mama is going as a coordinating Darth Vader. Day two: Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. I'll be wearing her wedding dress/funeral pyre dress. I figure this will be pretty maternity friendly. I have the dress essentially completed, the pin ordered and on its way, and all I need to finish are the arm bands and making a dragons egg. My mom and dad are also coordinating with grandma and grandpa Dany and Drogo cosplays. Yay! Day three: Melisandre from Game of Thrones. We're going for her "pregnant-with-a-demon-baby" look. Red dress, belt, necklace and cloak. So far I'm finished with the cloak and dress (pics to come?) and need to make the necklace and belt. Day four: an unknown cosplay. Or maybe just a nerd outfit. Or maybe a disney princess fifties housewife. Who knows! I'm trying to finish the ones I'm certain of before I tackle this day. My mom is also being awesome and supplying wigs for the two full on cosplays that I'll hopefully be adept enough to style when I get there.

Lovely Sunday afternoon!

Enjoying a lovely Sunday afternoon off from work. I made myself a rather large batch of thai coconut soup, it's a pretty awesome soup to make because you can kind of throw anything you want into it. I added sardines, asparagus, zucchini, and mushrooms to my batch along with the usual chicken broth, coconut milk, sriracha, and Thai fish sauce. Yumyumyum.
