[ASIDE: I started writing this last week but hadn't yet posted it. Seems appropriate that it goes up now, on International Women's Day.] I am a Ghostbusters fan. I love both movies (and, yes, I more than occasionally do the lines along with the films). I watched the cartoon growing up. I lamented my lack … Continue reading Who You Gonna Call? Kick Ass Women!
Around the middle of March, I took part in Northern Virginia's Mini Maker Faire, held at South Lakes High School and Langston Hughes Middle School, in Reston, VA. To my knowledge, this was the first such fair in Northern Virginia. There have been several mini maker faires held fairly locally before - Silver Spring being … Continue reading If you make it, they will come – No.Va. Mini Maker Faire
We all have heroes when we start out in costuming. I'm not talking about the latex and tights-clad superpowered characters who people the comics we read and the movies we watch.

I’ll be the first to admit that part … Continue reading You mean I have to keep smiling?

Two months is … Continue reading Dragon*Con 2011 con report #1 – Final day of prep and Thursday
It is once again Geek Pride Day! To be completely honest, I almost forgot it was today. I didn't program it into the calendar on my phone, like I did with May the Fourth (yes, I'm actually geeky enough that I program stuff like that in). I think that was the real problem with remembering … Continue reading May Your Days Be Geeky and Bright
I feel I have been neglecting my geeky duties. I have not been watching any of my shows. Not Supernatural. Not Doctor Who (which, apparently, had one hell of an episode recently, written by none other than Neil Gaiman himself). I did manage to catch an episode of Bones the other day, which left me … Continue reading What I’m Not Watching
