(This was actually written two years ago and I honestly don’t know why I haven’t posted this until now)
I’m starting to become fairly annoyed when I hear females say stuff like “I’m just one of those guys” or “I’m not like most girls”.
I just think we, as women, are giving men too much credit here. Very often, I’ll stumble across a Facebook status or a blog entry pointing out how much of a tomboy they are, or how they’re “like, one of the guys” or that they “never wear any makeup.”
While I’m certain there are straight women out there who really do “think” and “act” like a man, and it’s obviously OK to feel that way, I just don’t think it’s necessary to brag about it as if it was some kind of an accomplishment, when, on the other end, you don’t hear straight men say they prefer wearing skirts, they get along with females more than males, and that they feel like their “one of the girls” because they like going on Pinterest all and watching the Oscars.
I swear, being a girl and acting like one isn’t that bad. In fact, I think it’s awesome really.
Soo, I’m sick and I’m a little bitter about it because the last time I was sick was about a year ago. I never had to call in sick for work for about a year until last week. My streak has been broken and all I have is BlizzCon to blame for.
…but it was totally worth it! BlizzCon happened on November 7th and I pretty much had the time of my life. God, I love that convention. Can’t beat it. Lately, I’ve only been updating this blog when I have a new cosplay to show and tell, and this entry ain’t no exception. I have a new cosplay and I’m here to share it with whoever still reads my blog (by the way thank you to those who still subscribe to my blog. I, I get distracted easily).
Back to my Jubilee cosplay post, I mentioned that I was most likely going to do a character from Heroes of the Storm alpha for BlizzCon, and I totally ended up doing it! So y’all, I made Wrath Sonya. She’s the incredibly badass barbarian from Diablo 3 and she’s also in the Hereos game that I just mentioned. She has about 2-3 different skins and I’m doing dis one:

Not going to lie, it is weird to see my hobby transition from blogging 24/7 to making cosplay 24/7. I hate that I can’t really juggle the two. When I’m interested in something, I like to focus my attention to one thing. Otherwise, the quality might not be as good if I tried to distribute my attention to different things.
Perhaps, when I’m too old to cosplay (if that even is such a thing) I’ll go back to my original blogging self.
Guys, if you’re not following my Instagram or Facebook then you’re missing out on me being a superhero like, all the time! It’s ok though. I’m covering all of my bases and posting them here in this sad and lonely neglected blog that I have.
This costume was debuted in San Diego Comic-Con 2014. This is one of the older versions of Psylocke. I cosplayed with the Stylish Geek who was also another old version of Psylocke. If you guys like both nerdy things and fashion, you would definitely enjoy her blog. Just fyi. ^_^
Dat brickwall tho.
Jedi mind tricks on your ass.
Purple and pink is a good color combo, no?
