Priorities.

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, I’ve been making plans for my next cosplay. Lady Loki. Well, a hybrid of the Lady Loki from the comics and a feminine version of Loki from the Avengers. I figured out the design, and I’ve figured out how to make the props I want.

But there’s a huge problem. While I could finish it in time… there are a lot of things that should be higher up on my priority list.

Namely, getting our stuff organized. We’ve been living here in with the in-laws for almost 5 years, and we sort of just found places for things- and kept accumulating stuff. But I never really took the time to organize it and figure out how to make it accessible, and so it’s just a mess.

So I need to get that in order before I take on any other projects. Which means no Lady Loki for Wondercon.

I will make the Loki costume- probably for Comikaze in the fall. Just not now. Because right now this mess is just suspended over me, and it’s driving me crazy.

I know, you’re probably in shock. TheBoy pretended to have a heart attack when I told him. (It’s like some weird adult achievement I’m unlocking) I’ll probably blog a bit about my progress, but don’t expect to see a lot of before pictures.

Kickstarter I'm a backerNow one other thing. One of the webcomics that I really love, Dresden Codak, has launched a Kickstarter to fund the first collected volume of the comic book. Now it’s already met it’s goal- so if you fund it, you are going to get it. So check it out!
