Hey guys! So on Saturday I went to the London Film and Comic Convention (it's kind of becoming a yearly tradition!) with [ profile] flying_girl73 . As usual, it was fun but exhausting, and I met a lot of cool people and picked up some nerd crap I couldn't get anywhere else. For example! I got the Knight & Squire collected tpb signed by the artist, Jimmy Broxton, who due to my complete inability to talk normally thought I asked for 'Knight on Squire action' and proceeded to laugh hysterically for about five minutes while I blushed (for those not in the know: Squire is 16. Knight is... considerably older) and then drew me a lovely picture that was thankfully not what I'd asked for. I also got Avatar: The Lost Adventures and another pony (Applejack!). The con this year was totally rammed because everyone wanted to see Karen Gillan (she was screened off in her own corner, it was insane) but I suppose it wasn't as crowded is it might have been in the US! You guys have the really serious cons.

Now, the other reason i go to these things is to see the cosplayers. Not in any weird way, I just really love seeing people dressed up as their favourite characters and enjoying themselves, and I get a kick out of sharing a moment with someone when I recognise who they are. So 90% of the pictures I take are of cosplayers, and I thought I'd share them with you guys!

Pictures pictures pictures! )

Anywhoo, that's it for cosplayer fun until the video games con in October, when I hope to participate myself! I was thinking of being human Twilight Sparkle. Apparently the wig wouldn't be as hard to do as I thought and I already own most of the stuff I'd need (completely by accident, I dress in a lot of pink and purple anyway) and I might knit a sweatervest with her cutie mark as a sort of argyll pattern. Kind of like this? I'll keep you all posted.

Random tidbit for today: My brother downloaded Undead Nightmare yesterday and I've been watching him play through it. This occurred while picking outfits for John:

Me: US Army outfit! US Army outfit!
Brother: ....why?
Me: *long pause* it's hot.
Brother: *funny look* *chooses default outfit*

And now a meme from [ profile] vocal_bard :

2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters beginning with that letter and your thoughts on each.

I got C: Runaways, Batgirl, Nextwave, kid's books and HINABN under the cut! )

Also I changed my default userpic because the old one kept getting me into trouble! Still Wondy, just less blood now.

As I'm something of a comics nerd, I've been following the DC Blackest Night event which has various characters becoming Green Lanterns for different emotions on different colours of the spectrum: red for anger, indigo for compassion, etc. Just now I was idly matching Lanterns to Hetalia characters and my mental train of thought hit a rather massive bump.

"Francis Bonnefoy of Earth. You are capable of feeling great love. Welcome to the Star Sapphire Corps."

Yes, all of their costumes look like that.

Now I'll never get to sleep.

(I would have drawn it but my scanner is still borked and I fail at tablet!drawing. Anybody else is welcome to take a shot :P)

 Because if this blog isn't for self-entitled ramblings, then I don't know what it's for.

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

I asked [ profile] futuresoon , and she gave me:

kung-fu action Jesus Doctor, the Bugle, Asterix, crossovers, England-the-country )
giefu: (Doctor Who)

Better things I could be doing with my time?

What on earth do you mean?

Today I got one of those random urges that went along the lines of 'You must bake something Livi. No, not at the weekend. NOW. And you must bake something challenging'. Never one to ignore the voices in my head, I dutifully found a recipie that didn't look like I could screw it up too badly and blithely plunged into the world of gingerbread biscuits.

Batbear! )
