Recently I got a new shirt for my Hermann Gottlieb (Pacific Rim) costume, from H&M.
The previous shirt I had for this costume was grey with red grid rather than white with black grid, and also far too large for me (even for a character with a wardrobe as ill-fitting as Hermann’s).
Like the old one, the new shirt did not feature a buttoned collar, but this issue was easily rectified.
Today I visited my parents where I drank too much coffee and was given a bag made out of Donatello’s face because I’m a spoiled six year old.
Co-pilot appreciation post.
This is MaEmon, we met in like 2002. MaEmon is my no.1 cosplay bro and quite possibly the physical embodiment of shitty memes.
The first two pictures are from 2011 and the other three are from like… last week or something. When we were re-enacting Ulrich Haarbürste’s Roy Orbison fanfictions because of reasons.

From Sunday at CHAOz convention.

Grop photos taken mainly by Elizabeth, save one which was taken by Thomas (who doubled as a ‘generic zombie survivor’), and the Nintendo 3DS (and 2DS) StreetPass one which was taken by one of the many rad CHAOz staff members.
Spent much of the weekend attending a convention called CHAOz which was held at Melbourne University.
On Saturday I mostly just swung by to pick up a ticket, having other commitments later in the day. Still wanting to cosplay I went as Dave Strider since people unfamiliar with Homestuck would be unlikely to pick it as a costume.
3 days of outfits from a recent short holiday. Though two are pretty similar because I didn’t want to pack too much. Also, while New Rocks may be comfortable, they are not appropriate for extended periods of walking.
Seven years ago today I met my partner for the first time, so here is a celebratory OTP photo because I’m a disgusting piece of nerd trash.
He was attempting to defend himself from my advances while simultaneously posing for photos.
This photo was taken at Federation Square in Melbourne during 2012 by my pal Hallward.
Successfully strapped a pogo-stick to the back of my Commander Keen costume using an old brush cutting harness bolted to a mouldy piece of PVC pipe dug out from an old swimming pool filter.
It actually worked out drastically better than anticipated, the stick is well balanced across the shoulders and clips nicely into the pipe- even prior to the addition of foam squares or Velcro straps (though the foam squares were partly to cover the bolts so they don’t damage the pogo-stick). The bolts were even the correct length and didn’t need to be trimmed down!
Special thanks to my father for drilling holes in things.
