It’s not a secret how much I love Leia and I can’t help but make new costumes for her all the time now. (It may be the latest obsession.) Ever since I saw her new dress in the Marvel Comics a few years ago, it’s been on my wish list. It’s the perfect blend between her classic Senatorial look and something more fitting with her somewhat more action oriented role in the comics. It may have taken a lot of work combined with plenty of frustration about sewing spandex but it was totally worth it.
Shout out to my Alderaanian sister Nicole for being my Evaan Verlaine at Celebration!

It’s sometimes a little touch-and-go when it comes to space dates, but we get there eventually. There’s always room in my big stupid senshi heart for another go, and I love that Abby is always there to meet me. Not gonna lie, eternal eternity is a pretty good look for us.
(Spoilers, it’s always Magical Girl Mondays in my heart.)

When you’re living your best mint life so hard the spillover is too real, but I’m just happy to be doing it with some of my fav (green heart emoji) (volleyball emoji) (flex emoji) sports anime friends by bringing back the Seijou cheerleader squad for a 2.0 at Katsucon 2017. Also back? Hotel room pompom sweatshopping as a team bonding exercise. It’s always a glamourous life we lead at the interhigh.

Iwa-chan supplied us with green heart lollipops pulled from her bra, which just goes to show she is best bro. Kunimi made us all matching mint hair clips, which just goes to show what a beautiful tsundere she is about team spirit.
“My perfect trust with you, Iwa-chan.”
Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, FL is this week and AHHHHH THAT MEANS WE GET THE LAST JEDI TRAILER SOON!!! Bria will be attending and even though she promised herself that this wouldn’t be a heavy costuming convention, she’s somehow got a full schedule anyways. You can see her costume schedule below and also catch her at the Carrie Fisher Memorial Gala on Thursday night and on the Women in a Galaxy Far, Far Away Panel on Sunday at 3pm on the Fan Stage.
Bria will also be covering the convention as press so keep an eye on both her Twitter and our WHR twitter for coverage of Celebration including interviews! Also… if you find Bria… she’s going to have some ridiculous pins on her to give away. It’s going to be great.
Listen, I’m just trying to live my magical girl life here.
If you know Chiha, you know she’s the actual most magical girl of all, and it was only a matter of time before I was clotheslined willing and screaming back to the CLAMP nightmare heartscape that is my 90’s shoujo past. Thanks for letting me hang with the squad, always. 💖

Three things I have in common with Ruby Moon:
+ piggyback rides are 100% a valid mode of transport
+ the vodka aunt instead of the wine mom
+ also living the second stage of my magical girl life
Three things that are different:
– I WOULD NEVER COME BETWEEN TOUYA AND YUKITO x3
I still can’t believe our Touya could haul my 10-ton butterfly ass around, and yet here we are. Magical girl life continues to give.
