I am SO TIRED.

Loads of fun! Although next year/Hallowe'en I am going to make green armbands and only paint my face green, because it got all over the white shirt and ruined the effect.

I even managed to stay within my budget, except for Sunday when I went a bit over. Better than previous years, when I've spent my lunch money on things and came home starving...

Things Acquired )

I am trying to get into the habit of posting more, instead of being like "Oh, you have nothing interesting to say, shut up until you have some pictures scanned or something, you useless boring human." Shut up, brain, this is not a helpful train of thought to have!

What have I been doing lately? Well, for one, Fan Expo happened and it was awesome. [livejournal.com profile] chavamara bought me the Eggplant Batgirl figure! I convinced Lufwood to buy Xena comics! I bought a Toon-Timmy shirt and a Red Hood shirt, so I can be Even-Robins-tastic, which is totally a real word! And I finally got the missing pieces of Villains United, so now I have every Secret Six comic. So then uh, I reread the series straight through. (Of course I did.) And let me tell you, it caught my brain something terrible, as anyone who has talked to me in the last week or so has probably noticed! I feel like more people need to be reading this book. More people I know, I mean. And/or more people willing to create fanworks.

Not that I haven't done that; I think it's a result of my brain rebelling against working in childcare. I have several pages of various not-child-friendly-at-all Secret Six sketches in the back of my sketchbook, and I sort of started a ridiculous project along the lines of [livejournal.com profile] amandeo's Tiny Secret Six combined with that All-Ages Watchmen thing that was floating around last year. It is fucking hard to translate Secret Six stories into hilariously kid-friendly versions, I don't know why I do these things to myself.

While looking for this year's Fan Expo pictures to post I instead found pics from last year. Which I don't think I ever posted. So I put them on my tumblr. (I have a tumblr now! This is Exciting News, okay, and you all care very much.) So if you want to see me be Sally Jupiter, that is the place to go! I will get this year's pictures off Lufwood uh, at some point soon, and hopefully not post them a year late this time.

Finally got around to getting the Steampunk Worlds Fair pictures off the camera and onto the computer. Most of the good pictures are on [livejournal.com profile] lufwood_emilius's camera, though, I'll post or link to them when she gets them up, I guess.
Twenty or so photos )
(For more "Gwen Does Ridiculous Things And There Are Photographs" news, see here, where [livejournal.com profile] colonize has uploaded the pictures from our Epic Playmobil Battle a few weeks ago.)
