My Life in a Nutshell

I’m suppose to do posts documenting my entire day once a month, but that never seems to happen. Also I always pick days when I’m doing something fun, which seems a bit like cheating… but here it goes (through a mix of cell phone and dslr images for comparison).

I always start the day with tea and reading. I scribbled some notes in my journal. I went outside in bare feet even though it was way too cold to check out the progress of the spring flowers.

Cellphone versions of the same thing, and also my awesome yoga moves.

My friends and I were headed to Toronto Comic Con, but I’ve wanted to check out Girl on the Wing in Hamilton for months now. It was really cute, and sells vintage clothing as well as goods from Out of Print and the Stay at Home Club.

I bought a few things….

I got the awful lapel pin (and a new obsession with lapel pins) and the pineapple earrings, as well as a vintage dress. Katrina bought my little camera earrings. I saw so many cute things though!

Then it was Comic Con. I had never been to Toronto Comic Con before and at first, it didn’t love it. I found the traffic flow overwhelming, even though I go to much busier events. I think Niagara Falls is still my favourite, but by the end of the night, I was enjoying myself. On the Friday night, there were fewer of the hardcore costumes. Mostly people wore hats or t-shirts devoted to their fandoms, not full outfits. The artist alley was really good and large though. Sometimes I find Fan Expo to have a lot of the same items, there was a great variety at this show, and reasonable prices.

I love seeing how people dress for these events. It’s so fun. I took a few of my favourite cosplay photos on my phone though. Lexa from The 100 and Kylo Ren, although isn’t that Rey costume (featured above) really amazing. The girl even looks like the actress.


And then, we drove home. The end.
