Busy Week

Published May 24, 2015 by kemeah

So, my birthday was with week. I turned 26….whoooo…. or something. Shares left over birthday cake:
The hubby got me some awesome presents:
He got me Persona Q! I’ve been wanting to play this for a while. I haven’t tried Persona 3 yet (but I have it downloaded on my PS3), but I have played some Persona 4 and Persona 4 Arena. My bestie got me hooked. I’m loving it so far, I thought I’d get frustrated having to draw my own map, but it makes it pretty fun.
He also got me some more bath bombs:
They’re actually called “birthday fandom”, lol.
I mentioned this a few weeks back, but I love Espionage Cosmetics, you should check them out:

I’m not a big fan of holidays or special occasions (like birthdays), so my hubby kind of goes overboard on trying to make me have a good time.

My mom came out for the long weekend “since it was both of our birthdays”….. She just wanted to see the baby. Never in the 8 years I’ve lived away from home has she ever wanted to visit me, not even when I was only 6 hours away. So, I wasn’t super excited about the visit. It was nice to see her and I got to get out and about this weekend, but I know I’m not why she came to visit, I didn’t even need to be here.

But, on to happier things:
I went to an Unbirthday Tea Party! A woman in my game group put on an Alice in Wonderland themed party for her daughter and I was invited (both because the kid likes me and to keep the mom sane). I was the Cheshire Cat:
I crocheted the ears just for this, they turned out pretty good!
We played croquet with lawn flamingos:
And had tea:
She went all out on this party:
I had to start following her on Pintrest, she did amazing on this party!

I’d say this has been one of my better birthdays…..ever….. New video game,visit from family (instead of me having to travel), and cosplay party.
Thanks for reading!


Fargo ComicCon

Published March 1, 2015 by kemeah

Yesterday we went to the Fargo (yes, that Fargo) ComicCon. Its not a very big con, honestly its not much more than a dealer’s den and video games, but it was $7 to get dressed up, get out of the house and have some fun.
I was Hello Kitty:

I crocheted the ears myself:
Vaulta Fett made another appearance and this time he had an adorable R2 unit with him:

So, yes, It was baby’s first con and everyone thought she was cute. She had a blast getting to interact with people. All and all it was a pretty good day.

October, the perfect excuse for Cosplay

Published October 26, 2014 by kemeah

It seems every weekend in October this year I’ve had an excuse to get dressed up. Friday we went to a costume party. I was a cat/ witch’s familiar
I made new ears just for it. I’m really happy how they turned out; I managed to find a way to make the fuzzy yarn turn out less floppy. More experimenting with this to follow. I didn’t enter the costume contest, the competition was sexy cop, another sexy cop, and a sexy firefighter…. No point in bothering.

Yesterday we went to ValleyCon, its a small local con that’s pretty much a dealer’s den and an excuse to cosplay and people watch.
I did a casual Star Trek cosplay, yah I’m at that point where if you know I’m pregnant it’s all “aww she’s starting to show”, if not it looks like I’m having a fat day :/
The handsome mandalorian next to me is my hubby’s latest creation: Vaulta Fett the mando merchant from vault 101. He already has a few fans:
Now I just have to figure out what I’m going to be for Halloween when I pass out candy on Friday.
