Catwoman Cosplay

Catwoman Cosplay as my first official cosplay photo shoot of the year 2014? With one of my favorite cosplayers ever?! CAN YOU SAY HELL YES?!!! Cosplay is something that I’ve always admired but never been able to get into myself. I can alter outfits to look as punk as I want them to, but it will be nothing like the stunning ensembles I’ve seen at conventions like Anime Central. One of the most impressive members of the Chicago Cosplay Community…

Lighten Up: Weight Bashing.

Warning: This Lighten Up Thursday is so high up on the passion ladder that it may offend some close minded, judgmental people but I don’t care. Prepare for me to get completely real. Today’s Lighten Up Thursday discusses the big, bad W. Weight.  The Story In my family, I was always viewed as unhealthy for not having a “normal” petite. I eat like a bird but not on purpose and not all the time. It’s just the way I am. Family…

Inspiration Vs. Imitation

Today’s blog is a “Break All Rules” blog that is posted on a Tuesday despite today being “Twisted Tuesday”. We’ve all had an incident where someone we’re close to has done something similar to something we’ve done. Sometimes, it’s eerily similar to the point of having troublesome feelings about that person. It’s hard to approach the issue, because many people derive their personal inspiration from others (We often call that role models.) So I’m going to attack the issue in the…

Twisted Tuesday: Writers And Structure

Structure I had a lovely lady request we meet up because she wanted to discuss my writing process. All week, I wandered around and was baffled. What would I say? I didn’t want her to be underwhelmed when she found out that my progress was merely putting my pen to my paper. Yet when it finally became time for the meetup, both she and I learned a lesson on how important it is as a writer to have structure. So this Twisted…

Lighten Up: Spring.

It’s finally spring and let me tell you Chicago, I am rejoicing for this weather. I’ve grown so used to cold nights and even colder mornings that I forgot that spring was even a season. Even better, spring is the season of awakening. It’s when all the flowers start to bloom and people start bringing out their sweat season smiles! This Lighten Up Thursday is a Spring Appreciation Post! It also goes hand in hand with today’s Project 365. What did I…

Lighten Up! Why Me?

Have you ever had an instance where you asked yourself, “Why me?” Why have I been “chosen” to bear the heavy load? Why am I the leader? Why was I born in this family, at this time, in this place? When you’re asking yourself these questions, it’s normally proceeding some horrible turn of events. You know what? You’re not the only one who asks the big “W.” Today’s Lighten Up Thursday may answer the question, “Why me?” The Story: Priscilla…

Chop Chronicles Chapter 6: Destiny

I was nervous about sharing this story but I said I wanted to bring you guys down this journey with me. Destiny as well as my resignation is a huge part of it. Like my hair, this decision was made to better myself. It’s amazing what talking, thinking, and a bottle of hair dye can do to a naturalista. That being said, Chapter Six of the Chop Chronicles is entitled “Destiny.” March 2014: The Month of Destiny and Determination March…
