My Calling

Caj and I teach the nursery together at church. Basically what that means is, the parents bring their 18-24mos toddlers to our class while they attend grown up Sunday School, and we do puzzles, blow bubbles, sing kids songs, and have snack time. It totally rocks! Believe it or not, we actually do try to incorporate some kind of spiritual lesson, or at the very least a spiritual story. But it's a lot of fun. People seem to scoff at it, saying sarcastically, "Lucky you!" But it makes me all kinds of giddy. I love it! The kids are so adorable.

I hadn't decided yet if I was going to volunteer for Phoenix Comicon. It really intimidates me! I always feel inadequate when it comes to any kind of work. But Caj has also expressed interest in volunteering so we can attend again together this year. After our experience last year?! I was surprised, too. But I still wasn't sure what we'd volunteer for. Until today, when PCC announced on Facebook that they're still looking for volunteers, especially for the youth programming. It couldn't be more perfect! We are fantastic with kids and probably would enjoy entertaining them more than we would interacting with the adults.

So there we have it! I've sent an email in expressing our desire to volunteer and help out with the kiddies. Hopefully I'll hear back from them soon and will see you at Phoenix Comicon!

I've gained a little weight since I last did my flexibility trick... So the video is on hold for a month.

In the meantime, I am currently working on my first 99% handmade cosplay. So, I confess, all of my cosplays so far have either been things pulled out of my closet, bought at a thrift store and altered, or mostly sewn by a friend or relative. So I am really excited about this because this one will be completely my own and so far it's been turning out very well. Caj is joining me in possibly volunteering at Phoenix Comicon, so I really hope to debut my cosplay there!

Phoenix Comicon 2012 & Stuff

I haven't decided if I'm going yet or not. Last year was a major disappointment, and this year they've raised the cost $10? No, thank you. Although if I do decide not to volunteer or something, I might at least dress up and hang out on the sidewalk. Really, I mostly just enjoy conventions to see everyone's cosplays. I don't really like to spend money and last year there was only one panel worth seeing.

In other news, I'm working on something very special right now - a cosplay video! Even though the anime I'm working on a cosplay from is pretty old, I'm hoping it's enough of a classic for everyone to appreciate what I have planned. Mostly this is for a couple of friends who I guess are fascinated by my ability to walk on my toes. Not tippy-toe walking. I mean folding my toes under my feet and walking with all of my body weight on them. Don't try this at home, kids. But that's not all! In my video I will be adding a very special trick that nobody outside of my family has ever seen me do! So keep an eye peeled for it, I'm hoping to have this filmed and uploaded within the next couple of weeks, plus a tutorial for making a modesty body suit.
