All in Cosplay
BlerDCon isn't the con we deserve but it could be...
MomoCon 2017! A lot of work and a lot of fun. This was my experience which I *know* is different from everyone else's because I don't watch Steven Universe and I think that show owns this convention.
When I see people and organizations promoting inclusion, my inner skeptic steps up to see what’s actually going on...and I didn't like it.
Photo Party Fun! Seriously, this is just about having fun taking pictures. Even though tons of horrible things are going on, I can't control that. But I can share a little of my joy.
I compiled my essays into a book for easy of finding. It's not everything from 2016, but it is the more significant essays. Available in print on CreateSpace and in eBook format on Amazon.
February was a busy month for social media. I spent most of it posting and preparing posts celebrating the Black cosplay hashtag.
Celebrating #28DaysOfBlackCosplay with cosplayer Jade Aurora.
Celebrating #28DaysOfBlackCosplay with MzTiyah Cosplay.
Celebrating #28DaysOfBlackCosplay with Oshare Cosplay.
Celebrating #28DaysOfBlackCosplay with cosplayer Megumi Chan.

Oppression is a compilation of moments that create a pattern. It’s the matching your pattern to others and seeing the overlap. It’s expanding your view to include the experiences of others and seeing the bigger picture that’s influencing your experiences and opportunities.
2016 was a shitty year in a lot of ways for a lot of people but personally, it was actually a pretty good year for me.
Now I need to keep telling myself that that's ok.
Can we please stop pretending that we don't do this shit for the attention and because it's fun? Everything else is a damn bonus!
DragonCon 2016 was everything I wanted and a little that I didn't but overall it was a great time!
I'm kinda sad it's over. Kinda.
Random thoughts as I prep for this year's DragonCon. Nothing insightful at all...
Taking some time to think back about the year...it's been an awesome ride so far!
Friday and Saturday of my SDCC adventure...
