I bought this sweater at a thrift store in Idaho when I was about 16. It's a super oversized granny sweater and I've never really stopped loving it. I find it interesting how some aspects of my style have never really changed - I've always loved dusky pinks and gothic undertones. I go through vintage/earthy phases, but I always come back to moodiness. Living in dark, rainy, cold Seattle also doesn't help this.
There's not a whole lot going on in my life lately. Working full time kind of puts a damper on most of my other billion projects, so at night when I get home I mostly just putz around the house and do weird little projects. Last night I used an old thrift store canvas to make some new art for above the bed with Daniel. Yes, it's a Game of Thrones quote. I'll have a tutorial for you guys coming soon!
I've felt a little stagnant in life lately - but I begin to feel this way if something doesn't happen for a week. Admittedly, I am a little high strung. Basically, I've been waiting on some super huge, life changing news for nearly a year now - a few months ago I got a glimpse into this new career/life path, but since then I have heard NOTHING.
In other news, in conjunction with my article from a few weeks ago about how Cosplay Is Not a Permission Slip, I wrote a follow up piece for iFanboy about How to Behave Like a Human Being at Conventions. This is a topic I obviously feel strongly about, which leads me to a new point: If you have experienced any sort of sexual harassment at a convention, whether in costume or not, I'd love to hear about it. I'm working on launching a website where people can share their stories and we can spread awareness of the horrible behavior people have to deal with at conventions.

Have a lovely Thursday, Unicorns!
