After 7 Weeks... Fall Break & Cosplay

This week, almost halfway through the semester, us Liberty peeps got to enjoy a 4-day fall break, which was quite pleasant.

My favorite part of the break was sleeping in for a few extra hours each morning.  And being able to linger over breakfast -- that always feels so luxurious to me.  Did I ever tell you breakfast is my favorite meal of the day?  It is.  It really is.  Whenever I can take the time for a big ol', 500+ calorie breakfast, I just feel amazing the whole day.  No coffee necessary.

That's another thing -- did I ever tell you I don't do coffee?  Partly because it's not recommended for us Paleo people, but mostly because I just hate the idea of it.  Fake energy that you have to drink every day in order to feel alive is not my idea of a good thing.  Oh, and don't even get me started on our country's obsession with Starbucks...

So, basically, I'm so "hipster" that I'm above the whole coffee thing. ;)

Back to fall break.  Besides sleeping in and eating big breakfasts, I went on a marvelous thrifting adventure.  I came home with a pair of adorable, nicely used Vera Wang booties for $3 (so much win), and...........*drumroll*........... a pant suit.  Yes, a suit.  Why?

yes i know i use this gif too much but it's perf
THAT'S RIGHT, GUYS.  Fem 10th doctor cosplay, coming up.  Someday.  Not sure when.  Possibly halloween..?  Not sure yet.  BUT I have the suit (which just needs some slight fitting alterations done to the coat), I have the screwdriver (eheheh), so now I just need a pair of white Converse, the flowery tie, and possibly an awesome tan trench (if I can ever find one for a decent price). ;D

Awwhhh all this talk is making me remember how much I miss cosplay... agonizing over accuracy and designs and accessories and all that good stuff.  See, if I had the time, I'd love to make a costume more like this, but, like I said, TIME and motivation, so I don't think I'll be able to pull that off.  Which makes me sad.

OH I JUST REMEMBERED STAR WARS.  What am I going to do for The Force Awakens premiere???????  I need to get started on a costume... I've only got 2 months.  And those 2 months are going to be busy with college shtuff.  I don't even know what I want to make yet.  Either a sweet jedi costume, or maybe Rey's costume... I'd love to make Kylo Ren's outfit, but I don't think I'm quite up to it... aghhhhh too many options! ;D

So, looks like it's time to do some costume planning... see y'all next week. ;)

    Man I love breakfast too. My favorites are egg scrambles/omelets and biscuits w/ gravy.
    By the way, your new header is awesome!

  2. Sounds like so much fun!! Hey you should totally do a Jedi! We have to dress up for our concert for orchestra as we're doing Film Music and I'm going to be a Jedi! Photoshop can do wonders in terms of lightsabers :D
    Yus lovely new header!

  3. Can't wait to see what you come up with for Star Wars! The fem Dr. Who costume sounds cool. I'll spring for the white Converse! :) ;) <3

  4. Hey girl! I love keeping up with you via blog :) I can't wait to see your future cosplays! Definitely make time to keep it up, especially because it's something you enjoy so much! You and I have differing opinions on coffee and Starbucks... but I won't go into that right now ;) Basically my life is ruined since I discovered how to get super-cheap coffee at Bryan, LOL! Glad you had a good fall break. I've still got a few more days of freedom before hitting the books again. Can't wait to catch up in person sometime in the (hopefully near) future. Have a beautiful and adventurous fall!

  5. Um, how have I not seen that Loki gif before :o Can't wait to see the cosplay! :D I'm still voting that you do Chewbacca for Star Wars ;)
