Our team badge comes from here

Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn't fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn't frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it.
― Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide


Hello, hello! If you're a lover of fanfics, cons, midnight releases/openings, and other such super nerdy goodness, this is the team for you! If you have any questions, drop me, FreakieGeekie, a PM or hop on over to the discussion thread where some of your fellow nerds will be more than happy to help!

I would like to give up on my previous Research Project, and propose a new one.  I am just not motivated to crochet granny squares right now!

Research Project Name: Shimmy for the Cure Bellydance Outfit
Team: Textbook
Brief Description: The dance is in October, and our song/theme is a secret (you guys won't tell, right?  But I think I can post pics of the outfit without giving that away!), but I can tell you my costume will be blue.  I need to make a skirt, a beaded bra, a belt/hip wrap a shrug, and a vest... and possibly some jewelery.  My timeline is something along the lines of procrastinate procrastinate procrastinate... plan out some things... sew like crazy... get frustrated... procrastinate some more... sew like crazy some more...

I think the skirt and shrug will take a week (they're the easy part, it's mostly the volume of the skirt that's the issue as far as cutting it out), the bra and belt will take about two weeks (lining and covering and beading... tiny tiny tiny stitches), and then the vest another few days.  This is, of course, me being ridiculously optimistic and assuming nothing goes horribly wrong. Probably closer to a month of work, and that's if my weekends free up.
