If you hadn’t seen it already, Kohl’s recently debuted a really neat Rogue One inspired collection. I swung by one of their stores a few weeks ago to check it out (and tweeted my experience with the entire collection) and ended up buying a few pieces. A holiday brunch was a great excuse to wear the jumpsuit for the first time!

I fell in love with Aphra the very minute I saw the cover of Darth Vader #3. That was about two years ago and I’ve yet to find a reason not to love this sassy, rogue archaeologist who managed to survive working for Darth Vader. (Just barely but it still counts!) It means the freaking world to me that I have a character to cosplay in the galaxy far, far away who actually looks like me and who I love whole-heartedly. I will forever be indebted to Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca for creating her.
I’m especially excited because she got her very own comic book which debuted today! (And all of you should go read it ASAP!) And hey, if you need proof of how much I love Aphra, I’ve made upgrades to the costume since first making it back in July and I already have other upgrades planned AND I even want to make more versions of her various costumes because she has so many. Aphra is MY GIRL and if you need proof… well… this happened entirely by accident.

Photography by the ever incredible Zhobot!
Double thank you to Heather of Zhobot for venturing forth to a random parking garage with me during what was decidedly winter so we could get these pictures!
There’s just some space things you always come back to, and thank you so much to Rich and Strange Photography for once again making the magic happen. Send us to the outer reaches of the galaxy, always. <3

Okay so here’s the thing: I know approximately one way to cope with nerd and convention related stress. That way is by making a cute dress. This was my answer to said stress before Dragon Con this year. (Shout out to the awesome TSA guy when I was on my way down to the con who asked if my dress was from the Disney Parks.) And also, because it’s me, I didn’t get to actually take pictures in this until very recently when I got to shoot with the wonderful Haythem Lafhaj!
