CONvergence!

Hooray, it’s CONvergence time!

I’ll be there throughout the weekend, so stop by and say hello and grab a sno-cone! The Mos Icee Cantina is open 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM on Thursday and Friday, and 8:00 PM – 1:00 AM on Saturday.

Ladies of Star Wars Panel – I’ll be on the panel for “Ladies of Star Wars” on Friday at 2:00 PM.

Find me on Thursday dressed as General Hux and tell me why Kylo Ren is a punk-ass bitch to receive a “Generally Angry” badge ribbon! (There are no incorrect answers.)

Find me on Friday as Poe Dameron (Jakku) or on Saturday as Rebel, Rebel Princess (David Bowie/Princess Leia mashup) in your rebel/resistance costume to get a “Rebellions” badge ribbon! I’m also willing to trade ribbons.

Hope to see you there!

Twin Cities Pride Parade & SaberCon

I meant to post this a while ago, but I’ve been so caught up in last-minute costume stuff for CONvergence that I forgot!

Two weekends ago I attended The Saber Legion‘s SaberCon (two days of it, at least) and it was a lot of fun! I realized I didn’t take any photos, so I apologize for that.

June 25th was the Twin Cities Pride parade, and I walked with the Geek Partnership Society‘s float as part of the Minnesota Force. I’ve never been in the Pride parade before, and I can’t describe how incredible it was. There was so much positive energy and excitement from the crowd! I had an absolute blast, and I hope I get to do it again next year.
