Happy Friday! It's time to spam you with many angles of my Josie costume from Dragon Con. Actually there are only 5 pictures here so you can deal with it, I'm sure. I absolutely loved wearing this costume around the convention. The perfect fit created by my mom was a lot of that reason. Plus leopard print is kind of my thing. I'd like to think if I started a girl group we'd wear leopard print leotards too. But anyway, this whole look is brought to you by my talented mom. She can make things and that's pretty awesome. Especially since this outfit looks just like the cartoon minus the shoes (and she didn't make the shoes because she's not a cobbler.) When it's time to wear a costume, knowing someone who can sew and do hair comes in really handy! Thanks mom!
I'll show you more pictures from Dragon Con tomorrow and tell you all about it. Today I just wanted to show off this costume! I had a lot of people stop me to take my picture when I wore this. One photographer kept telling me how perfect I was as Josie. I also randomly entered the Page to Stage costume contest wearing this. I didn't win but it was a really fun experience. Now I know how to prepare for the next time I enter one!
I hope you had a good week! I've been job hunting and expanded my search to Chicago because why not? I always thought it'd be fun to live there for a while. (Shameless call for help ahead. Proceed with caution.) If you know of anybody hiring anything digital media, communications, social media, digital marketing, and/or children's media related let me know. I have a master's degree in mass communication but I'm having a hard time finding anything that doesn't require 3-5 years of "professional" experience. I've listened to ten thousand pieces of the same advice already so please spare me unless it's something novel. I love you guys. That is all.
I'm heading out to Athens this evening to spend some time with Jeanie and experience The Great PumpkinFest at Terrapin Brewery. Fall foods and beverages are my favorite ever so I'm pretty excited. This won't occur if it gets rained out though, so we'll see!
Have a great start to your weekend!
