THIS WAS MY FAVORITE PART OF THIS YEAR’S DRAGONCON.

No joke. I can’t fake this amount of joy:

Mad love for the Carol Corps! Seriously one of the most positive, familial fandoms out there.

Also, huge thanks to the SCF (http://thesuperherocostumingforum.yuku.com/) for putting these huge meet-ups together. And Kelly Sue, for being totally awesome and attending.

My creativity.

My anxiety/depression.

If I were in a ball pit that was 23 balls deep, you’d see the crown of my head. Or the bottoms of my feet. 23 balls deep, I’d probably go in head-first.

Starbuck: When I was leading the Fleet to Earth everything seemed so…clear. For the first time in my life I knew what I was doing, why I was here. Now I’m just…adrift again.

Slick: Listen. You may feel like hell. But, sometimes, lost is where you need to be. Just because you don’t know your direction doesn’t mean you don’t have one.

snibbits said: Love your cosplays so much :) I f you ever need help redesigning a character, would love to help you

Thank you for the message! I just took a look through your Tumblr and, WOW, you and your friend Maxime make a great team. Loving that you’re so clearly Marvel fans. I hit that Follow button pretty immediately! Thanks for the offer - I’ll certainly keep you in mind. :)

Edit: Ooops! I had meant this to be a PM…but now that it’s not, you should totally check out this guy’s work! It’s fab!

I just finished watching BSG what do I do with my life now

HEEEELP

I AM LITERALLY FINISHING IT TONIGHT!  

LIKE AFTER MY DOWNLOAD OF TEAMVEIWER IS DONE.

I THINK WE SHOULD FREAK OUT TOGETHER!  

GIVE ME LIKE 3 HOURS TO WATCH THE LAST TWO EPS.

HAVE TISSUES READY

HELP

I just finished watching BSG what do I do with my life now

HEEEELP

The elevator opened to let my new friend Holly out, and I heard “Going up?”

"Yep!"

This grinning older man steps on. “Oh, hey, great Starbuck!”

My first thought when I realized it was Michael Hogan was ‘I should’ve said ‘yes, sir’!’. I managed to keep my cool, always striving to do so when around actors/celebrities, and thanked him with a big grin. “Katee Sackoff is in Montreal, right now,” he shared with me. “She says it’s in the negatives, and it’s snowing.”

"She should be here, with us!" I was pretty eager to suggest as we stepped out, blanketed in end of summer Hawaiian heat.

"She should! I’ll tell her!"

I got to chat for a few more moments before someone came by and I asked: “Would you mind if we got a picture together?” He seemed happy to. The first one I got all awkward all over again, so it led to an awkward prom pose (AHAHA WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY HAND). Then he said “Hold on, hold on,” and got on my other side for the second shot.

It may have only lasted 10 minutes, but it filled me with joy. It’s wonderful to look up to these actors you go along with on this remarkable ride of a TV series and meet them to find they’re good people. I’m still grinning at these photos. Thank you Michael Hogan for being so welcoming and easy-going! Thank you to HawaiiCon for the opportunity for such a positive interaction!

WHY BIG SUPERHERO MUSCLES AREN’T ‘THE SAME THING’ AS SEXY CURVES
By Andrew Wheeler
As a man who reads superhero comics, I confess that I share a commonly-held prurient interest in big-chested, long-legged heroes in skin-baring costumes that barely cover their naughty bits — or as I like to call him, Namor.
Sadly, Namor is pretty much alone in his category. Contrary to the perception that male heroes in comics are frequently sexually objectified, it’s my experience that even Namor is only rarely presented as someone to lust over. Yet I’m fortunate that my tastes run towards the Hemsworth end of the scale. Like many straight men, I admire the kind of buff dudes that are the staple of superhero comics, even though they are rarely sexualized. If I shared the tastes of most of the women I know, I think I’d find superhero comics an even more frustratingly sexless wasteland.
Big muscles are a male fantasy. That’s not to say that women aren’t ever into them, but let’s face facts; women have never been the primary target audience for superhero comics, and male heroes are drawn with big muscles anyway. Make no mistake; women are there. But those big muscles are not there for women. They’re there for men; straight men who find male power exhilarating. If women didn’t exist, superheroes would be drawn just as buff as they are today — because as far as most superhero comics are concerned, women as consumers do not exist.
Yet I’ve seen it said more times than I can count that male heroes are objectified, sexualized, idealized, just the same as the women — because they’re big and ripped and dressed in tight costumes. It’s an idea that’s completely tied up in the narcissistic notion that androphile women are attracted to the same qualities that men find appealing.
Talk to a few women, and you’ll find that’s broadly untrue.

I love and agree with everything this article has to say 1000%.
Power Girl and Warbird/Ms. Marvel are two characters I love, and two characters I’ve dressed up as. The costumes are fun; I appreciate their aesthetic. However, whenever I’ve suggested that these outfits are 100% pandering to guys fantasies (especially given how awkward they’ve been to wear in stage fights!), I’ve been dismissed. ‘The men are designed to attract women, so the women are designed to attract men. Get over it.’ On deaf ears have my protests of ‘I don’t really find bulging muscles attractive’ gone. ‘Well, that’s just you.’ BUT IT’S NOT JUST ME. THANK YOU COMICS ALLIANCE.

Thank you! I am going to try my very best to be at NYCC. I have managed to snag a 4 day pass, but funds are a wee bit tight right now.

Anonymous said: Hello! First off, the level of talent you display in making your costumes is flat-out incredible. These are movie-quality costumes (or, in Carol's case, uniforms). Second, you write beautifully--you really have a voice, and it's a pleasure to read your work. I hope you continue to enjoy cosplaying, creating and innovating amazing costumes and expressing yourself through words. Thank you for your bravery and confidence in sharing these parts of your life with us. Also, COMICS!!!!

Wow. Thank you. Truly. You are why I keep Anon open.
