1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 25 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Alexampersandra on: July 24, 2017 05:46:49 AM
This weekend, our big excitement was a Pokemon Go Catch-a-thon at the Zoo. I scrambled to make an Articuno cosplay in five days and Rosie was a little helper! (Video of her helping me sew on her IG: www.instagram.com/rosiethelv )

Shockingly, I got no photos of her with me in costume but we also made this little bag to stand in for my purse, with the Team Mystic logo on the front:

Rosie and I had a bacon-filled weekend!


This is the bacon stout from Wasserhund (local brewery that makes not only amazing beers but also amazing pizza)... served with a strip of candied bacon!


Then we make maple bacon chocolate cupcakes to take to my friends' Game of Thrones dinner party. (They always make beef and bacon pie for the season premieres, so this time we went all out and had bacon in EVERY dish... including dessert!)

Rosie and I had a very busy weekend with my friend Cassy (who has been in other LV books as well, since she comes down every summer and makes me go to the beach).

We went to the beach, of course...


And the aquarium...


Then Jungle Golf...


And rounded the whole thing off with a trip to Forbes for saltwater taffy!


There was actually even more, including sitting by the pool and hitting up the local Krispy Kreme, so check out her Instagram for more:

Rosie and I went to Awesome Con in DC!


This is the backlot costume contest... we entered the main stage contest (remember the scale Avengers dresses? We entered Captain America, Iron Man (me), and Loki, and won best portrayal in our skill class!!!!!) so I couldn't take photos at that one.

Today, my sketchbook arrived from Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project:

They send you a 5"x7" sketchbook, you fill it up and send it back, and they add it to their library of sketchbooks. Sometimes they send out a certain number of books on a traveling exhibit, so my sketchbook might get to pretend to be an LV at some point! They also track them by barcode and will notify you any time somebody looks at your sketchbook!!!

And of course, more on IG: www.instagram.com/rosiethelv

Rosie and I did some gardening yesterday! I couldn't take a lot of photos because I was wrist-deep in topsoil. But we did get a little succulent that's about Rosie's size!



More on Instagram (including one of Rosie in my little porch garden!)

Ahh, Monday... back to work! Rosie went exploring in my office and found a new vantage point...



We had a pretty quiet week/weekend, but as always, her Instagram:

Rosie and I went to a lot of breweries this weekend! This photo is from Green Flash, where we were playing bocce with my in-laws (none of us had ever played before, and I'm pretty sure we did it wrong, but it was a lot of fun anyway!) and entertaining Jack, their dog (who is in the background here).

Alexampersandra - cool mail!  Did you make it yourself?


Thank you! No, my friend Beth made it... and 7 others! We had all the Avengers: I'm Iron Man, she's Captain America, we also had Winter Soldier, Hulk, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, and Thor, plus Loki! Here's one of the group shots (just me, Cap, Hulk, Thor, and Bucky):

Wow, everyone has been having such adventures since the last time I checked! Rosie and I have been doing a lot in the past week!

First, we went to Philadelphia for a few days.

We went to the Rodin museum, which had one of my favorites by him (The Cathedral):


We went to Shake Shack, which was a first for me (and soooo good):


For those of you playing along at home, you may recall from last summer that I am getting a photo of myself at a library in every state, so we had to stop by this beautifully muralled public library to check Pennsylvania off the list:


Among other things, which are on Rosie's Instagram.

Then we had a conference in Radford (the other end of Virginia) but I didn't get any photos except this one, because the weather was icky and I was busy with my poster:

(I don't have plans yet to go out that direction again before Rosie leaves, but if I do, hopefully there will not be crazy fog on the mountain and we can stop at the scenic overlook!)

And then, Tidewater Comicon was this past weekend!

Saturday, my group and I were in cosplay (knitted scalemail Avengers dresses... I'm Iron Man):


And of course, we had to step into the Tardis:


Lots of fun! Now we're back to work!!!

We went to see the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit at the Chrysler Art Museum in Norfolk!


There was a little station where you could draw your own "vision of Paris" and leave it to share with other visitors.
