San Diego Comic Con, Part 3 – Saturday Shenanigans

Saturday was cosplay day. My first time ever cosplaying in public (I’m uber shy, remember?) so it was kind of a big deal for me. I’d spent a lot of time and energy putting together a few costumes, the pièce de résistance of which was my Thor costume. Then I woke up with hives. Awesome.

Going apeshit for Rise of the Planet of the Apes

I’m officially based out of San Diego now and Saturday morning I started the daunting task of unpacking everything I own.  Which is a lot of crap.  Ugh.  But it’s awesome crap that I’m not willing to throw or give away so whatever.  Thanks to my OCD and my constant pursuit of organizational perfection, it… Continue reading Going apeshit for Rise of the Planet of the Apes
