Watermelon Wednesday: Cotton Candy

Watermelon Wednesday

It can be good for the soul to change things up every now & then. You might get your hair or nails done, but there is something special about being able to do a radical change that is entirely temporary, in that you can take it off whenever you like. Wigs can be a great outlet for creative style expression & can certainly be wonderful for cosplay, LARPing, or just to do something fun & different for a day (or 2, or 3, LOL). A little self-indulgence in the way of fantasy never hurt anyone, as long as we don’t allow such whims to dominate our lives. Just take some time to revel in being different, to allow ourselves the freedom of being blatantly unusual to take some of the daily pressures off the table for a bit. Being comfortable with ourselves enough to be bold & noticed in this way helps to build confidence & release a bit of stress along the way. The sheer enjoyment of living in the moment, even if it is only for a moment, can go a long way to increasing our general happiness levels. Anyway, today’s spotlight is a lovely wig I found while browsing some of the sweeter (yep, just going to roll with the pun) selections available at Wigsbuy, a lovely piece suitable for a night (or day, as the case may be) on the town. 😉

Watermelon Wednesday: Mysterious

Watermelon Wednesday

The aura of mystery can be thick about certain articles of clothing & accessories. There are times that we wish to cultivate this atmosphere as well. When I first saw this blouse I was immediately taken with it’s vibe & thought y’all might enjoy it too. Today’s item was found at TB Dress & as always with this particular shop I have chosen to list full price, though it is not very likely you will have to pay that much for it as everything is always on sale, just the precise level of discount varies.

Watermelon Wednesday: A Bit Goth Girl

Watermelon Wednesday

I do love my goth stuff & when I saw this particular piece I was both charmed & amused. Definitely will have to get me one at some point, it would make a great accessory for certain types of get-togethers. In my case it would also be appropriate for my anniversary celebration (you might remember my handfasting on Halloween) & even Valentine’s Day with the goth flavors of my relationship. I found this darkly adorable treasure at Pink Basis & you might also enjoy it as I do. 😉

Fantastical Friday: A Few Random LARP Accessories

It’s been a while since I explored some of the LARP options available at Amazon, my usual site to explore for odds & ends I’m unlikely to find at any of my other favored shops. I do love my games & a little fantasy never hurt anyone, lol. 😉 You’ll find that most of these items are pretty practical & might even come in handy for a Renaissance Fair (not to mention various convention looks). I hope you get as much enjoyment out of an occasional break from the pressures of reality as I do, stay safe & stay sane. 😉

Watermelon Wednesday: Boot Weather

Watermelon Wednesday

There’s no denying it, I love boots, always have & likely always will. In the colder months they are so much easier to find too. Withe the onslaught of the season of commercialism the deals abound. I find myself looking through boot selections fairly often & found these cute ones while browsing the holiday deals on Walmart.com.

Fantastical Friday: Sweet Unboxing

Fantastical Friday

Finally, I’m back. New computer came in & something else really cool turned up too! A bit back I had entered a contest on twitter being held by Dark Horse Comics & shock of all shocks, I was one of the winners. I said it was shocking because I haven’t won anything of note for 23 years, lol. I didn’t do a video or anything, just took pics of the basic steps & edited the pics for text & some emoji I placed (please forgive the flash). So here goes, my first unboxing for this blog 😀

unboxing01

Not a big reveal, but the initial opening does hint at some of the treasures inside. My excitement was running over a bit at this point, LOL.

unboxing02

A charming move on their part, they included a card that thanked me for being a fan & wished me a joyful holiday. ❤

unboxing03

We all know I love zombie stories & this one appears to be along similar lines, so this should be an epic & exciting read. Like all the manga I have encountered before the book is composed in reverse from the standard western order.

unboxing04

The flash made his feet disappear, so I felt it wasn’t outrageous to place the emoji over the glow. As I’m not a serious collector, I tend to take things out of their packages, so this sinister guy is now decorating my desk. I am impressed with his texturing & careful paint job. Also looking forward to the final battle in Game of Thrones, when our story reaches its climax.

unboxing05

Dark Horse does a lot of movie & show based comics, so it isn’t really that shocking that they have Fight Club. It was surprising that it’s hardcover, which is quite nice. Looking forward to reading this one as well, especially as it implies that it is a continuation of the story.

unboxing06

Well, this is intriguing. The cover is simple & compelling, can’t wait to crack it open to find out what happens.

Fantastical Friday:In World Cosplay

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. SmallWorlds avatar. There are unique challenges to cosplay in that particular world, as you are restricted to available clothing & wear options, so imagination is necessary to make it work. I have a few personal quirks too, there are things about my avatar I never change, so my skin tone & whatnot does not always align  with the expectations of a particular character. I do frequently change my hair, hair color & makeup options to suit a specific role. Within these restrictions I have put together a Thor, based on the current female Thor of the comics. I have 2 images, the first shows the costuming more clearly & the second features the lightning fragrance, which obscures the costume a bit, but adds an effect to the whole thing. There is only 1 red cape, that isn’t a rare I do not own, but it would be unsuitable anyway, having a lightning bolt on the back (the rare has a beta symbol, also rendering it very not right). With the cape issue I decided to use a scarf to hint at the borders of a cape around my neckline. Naturally, numerous other compromises had to be made, but overall I am very satisfied with the final outcome. Originally, I had planned to take screenshots of the various component pieces, but with the holiday & work I’m running super short on time to compile the images, so I’m just sticking with the completed ensembles.
