Day 361: Joss Whedon

Day 361: Joss Whedon

June 23 is Joss Whedon’s birthday. Joss is one of my favourite writer/director/creators. It all started with Buffy, The Vampire Slayer…movie, yes, there was a movie, and I loved it and it was written by Joss Whedon. Then when I got older and heard they were making it into a TV series I was ecstatic and the fandom has continued since then for the series, Angel, Firefly and of course Toy Story. Which brings me to my choice of costume today as Mr Potato Head from the film written by, yes you guessed it, Joss Whedon.

On June 8, 1957, Scott Adams was born. Scott Adams is the creator of Dilbert, a cartoon that satirises the white-collar office space. So today I have dressed as the title character from the comic – Dilbert.

Day 254: Sci-Fi Convention and International Women’s Day

Day 254: Sci-Fi Convention and International Women's Day

March 8 is International Women’s Day. It is also the first day/night of Secret Garden Festival which has been themed Sci-Fi Convention. So I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and dress up as She-Ra. (I later that night WON Female best-dressed as judged by the crowds applause. One of my proudest moments!)

She-Ra: Princess of Power is the twin sister of He-Man and has incredible strength, was fast-moving and had the ability to communicate mentally. She-Ra’s primary weapon was the Sword of Protection. This sword was almost indestructible and had the ability to deflect bolts of energy, both magical and technological, as well as to project beams of energy from the stone in its center. It also allowed her to transform from Princess Adora (her alias) to She-Ra. She-Ra was a powerful woman who influenced and inspired young girls around the world, so she was a perfect fit for these two themes! Fingers crossed one day a live-action film is made so that she can be introduced to a new generation of girls.

Also, I’d like to thank Delta’s Dazzling Costumes, and especially Lisa, who searched multiple times through their stocks, mid-warehouse-move, so that she could find this costume and help 7-year-old Mary live out her dream of being She-Ra.

Day 206: Katey Sagal

Day 206: Katey Sagal

January 19 is Katey Sagal’s birthday. I know Katey best for her role as Peggy in Married with Children, but thought that a Leela costume would be funnier so went with that. Hopefully I was right, if not, feel free to voice your opinions in the comment section below.
