ComicCon weekend

31 Oct

So, since I’m now traveling on the Friday of ComicCom for my internship, I am down to two costumes. Obviously I’ll be doing my Femme!Jayne on Saturday since I’m meeting Adam Baldwin. Sunday I have decided will be my Dinner lady Rose Tyler. It’ll be a test run for Gally. Hopefully *someone* will recognize me. If not, it’s all good ūüôā I was planning on the steam punk archaeologist as well, but time and money will have run out. I’ll save that for comicpalooza in June.

Anyone have a winning lotto ticket they don’t need? ūüėČ

Austin ComicCon and Doctor Who

29 Oct

The Doctor Who Fan Club of Austin Texas will have a booth at this year’s Austin ComicCon.¬† Stop by and check us out!!¬† One of our chairmen will more than likely be bringing his 10th Doctor cardboard cutout with him, so you’ll have to suffer and take pictures with sexy sexy 10 ūüėČ

*sidenote* The Austin Browncoats are also having their Jayne Cobb Knit-a-thon.¬† We’re raising money for charity and are currently at $11/hat, so come cheer on Ma Cobb as her knitting needles yarn it up all 3 days of the convention!¬† You can find more information here, or check them out on facebook.

Everyone have a great halloween and a safe one! Watch the cops and their “No Refusal” weekends!!

Peace & Who,

Walk to End Alzheimers!

13 Oct

http://walktoendalz.kintera.org/austin/jessicashafer

My mom’s father and my dad’s mother both have Alzheimer’s.¬† Neither of them remember who I am and I am not looking forward to this happening to either or both of my parents.¬† No one should have to go through these experiences, neither those affected or their caregivers.¬†

I don’t like asking for money, but any dollar amount will be incredibly helpful for research for future generations.¬† I know that many of you out there have your own charities you help out, but if you can spare a coffee for a day, we would gladly accept a donation.¬†

Thank you in advance for any help and even for just taking the time to read this.

Peace and Love,
xoxo

General wacktastic update

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Ok, enough of that.¬† I feel better now ūüôā

So….since last time what has happened?¬† I opted to not turn in my theory paper because I needed to study for an exam.¬† Plus side, I got a B on the exam and he drops the lowest paper grade including a zero, so those are both food things.¬† Bad side, the professor is pissed at the 5 of us who did not turn the paper in basically calling it a chicken shit move but honestly, I am not turning in a halfass¬†paper (that would be getting dropped anyways!) and then doing halfass on the exam.¬† So I’m pretty much like F him *meh* at this point.

Internship wise, I have gone from 14 minutes to take the rifle apart and put back together down to 8m40-41s.¬† And without doing any damage to it.¬† We’re working on a civil war project and some textiles too so it’s going great ūüôā

Art wise, I need to do more pieces.  And I need to put better pictures on my Etsy shop of my art and my jewelry.  They are pretty craptastic right now and that is not helping sell anything. Well, that and the fact I think I only have 3 or 4 items up, but 20 items at home waiting to find a loving owner (other than me lol).

Costumery is at a standstill due to the lack of funds right now.  It is stressing me out a little because I need to at least get the Firefly and Steampunk outfits done by Halloween so I can do some test runs that weekend.  The Doctor Who ones I am not worried about because I have quite a few to choose from that ARE finished and all I really need for my NCIS Abby is the lab coat so no worries there either.

Speaking¬†of costumes, I signed up for the Wonder Woman Universe photo shoot at Dragon*Con next year.¬† I’ll be doing Etta Candy.¬† She was the only on the list that didn’t¬†require¬† spandex and a micromini¬†skirt. Plus my working out is going good so who knows what I’ll be down to at that point.¬† Since it’s not until next August/September I have time to worry about that AFTER I graduate (DECEMBER!! hfjjhhuiauia343!)

Work is…….going.¬† I’ll say that so as not to speak my mixed feelings about it.¬† I’m pretty much just taking it hour by hour because that is how quickly things change there (hell, minute by minute more like it). Peak season starts the day after Thanksgiving, hence why I am always chilling in Austin for the “holiday”.

Anyone catch all¬†the Doctor Who references floating around all the tv shows lately? While I am happy that everyone is geeking¬†out over one my fave shows, I still worry that DW is getting to big for its britches (how Texan of me).¬† I now it’s not likely to go anywhere before the big 50th anniversary¬†series/episode(s), I just worry about its future following that. *sigh* We’ll see.¬† I didn’t much care for Series 6.¬† It seemed to be the “Series to make the fans all go WTF?!?” Moffatt¬†does make great episodes, but I am not sure who much longer he can hold out doing most of the episodes; that maybe he is a bit overwhelmed.¬† And don’t get me started on the series finale (“Wedding” of River Song. More like “Gotcha River!!!”) And yes, I am a Doctor/Rose shipper, but even I understand that she is indeed stuck in the Parallel Earth with TenII, so the Doctor must/will move on.¬† What I don’t like is that we won’t (more than likely) see how River got her sonic screwdriver because I was under the assumption that Ten gave it to her *shrugs* Moff¬†how you screw with my head!!! And River, why must she be written as this strong woman in the SITL/FOTD¬†and then have her story turn into Child of the TARDIS/Kidnapped by crazy tall dancing-while-I-kill-you guys in suits/Stalker who tries to kill Eleven only to give him endless regenerations??? AHHHHH, Moff you slay us all!

That is all I have floating in my head¬†right now. Not sure what will¬†come¬†out of me next, but I hope it’s groovetastic ūüôā Everyone have a great weekend and a smooth ride next week!

Peace & Who,
