Saturday, we went to a local con and I entered the costume contest - and won! I won Best Thrifted Costume for my Marty McFly cosplay because it's an "assembled" costume since Marty wears "real" clothes vs a costume I hand sewed. I've never won a cosplay contest before so I was super excited! (I got a TON of cheers and woos when I came up and later, one of the judges said she LOVED my cosplay!)



Hatty, meanwhile, got to take a ride on a cart heading to Hogwarts:

So even though it was smaller, we had a fun day and I was thrilled with having been a winner! Grin

Arrgh! So sorry we're terribly behind on updates over here! School has started at full speed, and now there are two hurricanes on their way!!
Stay safe! We're facing the same kind of situation with tropical storms here in Florida!

Well, Target apparently finished the paint job on the Pokeball outside the store! Cheesy

I don't play Pokemon (and to be honest, I don't really know much about it) but I DID get a kick out of the fact someone at my local Target painted just *one* of the red concrete "balls" (that prevent people from driving up on the sidewalk) half white like a Pokeball!  Grin

Then...this weekend, Hatty got to go to historic Sunken Gardens:

So...hopefully now that gets us caught up! And we can go back to regularly scheduled updates and not technical difficulties! Cheesy

Ok, here are some long overdue Tampa Bay Comic Con pics!! Let's hope this works! Grin

First off, it takes place in Downtown Tampa. It was a rainy weekend but the parking garage gave us some nice views including the arena where the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning play:

The convention center is pretty big and the con takes over the whole building:

There was a professional cosplay group with a look-alike Rick and Abraham from The Walking Dead and man...they really looked good!

Late in the day a Jedi/Sith battle broke out!

...But thankfully no ghosts were harmed:

Hatty tried on a Game of Thrones helmet but it wasn't her size:

And it turns out, these WERE the droids they were looking for! Grin

GRR!! Google photos did some kind of change and now how I used to be able to link to them (through picasa) won't work anymore and the links I try to get direct from google photos are MASSIVE and don't end in a file type (i.e. they're not .jpg) so I don't know if they will work!! The whole point of how I've done it is that my photos from my phone auto sync to my google account and then I added them to a LV folder and linked pics from there. Now I don't know what to do because I don't want to have to download all of the pics individually (making duplicates on my hard drive and taking up valuable space I don't have) to then upload them here. Angry Angry Angry

Here's a test of a pic. Let me know please if this works? Otherwise I have to COMPLETELY change how I share photos and right now I have no idea how to even begin!!!

While last week was mostly stressful and not fun (waiting at the hospital for 10+ hours for my mom's hip replacement surgery - which thankfully went well!), we did go to Tampa Bay Comic Con this weekend since my mom's surgery was originally scheduled for June and we had pre-purchased the tickets so we HAD to use them. Cheesy I haven't had time to sort through pics yet so those will be coming soon.

I've just been SO hectic busy and I've got a couple orders to make and another swap to finish but pics are coming soon!!

Here's one teaser to tide you over:
