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.”
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.
What up guys, it’s (chiha voice) magical girl Monday.
There’s something so heartrendingly vast and beautiful and good about Macross Frontier that will always call me home, space home, and when a friend is like, hey photos?? I’m always, heck yeah photos. So, thank you Bryan Lee Cruz Photography for taking the time on a gorgeous morning during this past Katsucon to set me against a sky so big and bright and blue it makes me feel like crying, like stupid baby princess Alto tears crying, which is possibly the most relevant kind of crying possible.

When you’re in a loooong term relationship with a video game series and you just love all of the characters so much but you especially love Visas and her design… you have to make the costume at some point. I finally got a KOTOR group for Celebration and Dragon Con this year and because I’m an overachiever, I decided to get the costume done early for Katsucon and approved by the 501st. Both goals achieved.
Getting to see pictures from this shoot was doubly awesome given that I only had a very vague idea how the costume looked while I was wearing it. (Before you ask, my vision in this costume is not great and I could mostly just see shapes and needed a seeing-eye trooper.) There are a few minor fixes I’m hoping to do to the costume before Celebration but otherwise, I’m really happy with how it looks!

Once again, thank you to my amazing British Clone Anna for the photography at Katsucon! She is always amazing to work with and doubly so given my inability to see.
