I’m ridiculously ill with a throat virus & conjunctivitis so the video I had planned wont be up anytime soon.
In the meantime you should check out Convos With My 2yo’s new Mini Series!

Buffy s03e09

Hoo boy does Whedon know how to make us feel the feels.

It’s really interesting to see how he uses this this same plot in new ways in each of his different shows. 
he main one that comes to mind is the episode of Dollhouse which features the song “Lonely Ghosts”.

He sure is a hear breaker

orphan black + zombie apocalypse ➜ click & drag (insp.)

I got Kira 3 times on the random hook up one…Something’s not right here.

I got Delphine on “kicked out of the group” and “attempts to kill you haha”
And it took me four goes but I got Cosima for Random Hook Up, success!

Upsides to being a sick kid.

Years of being reminded to take medications at certain times each day makes it a lot easier to self medicate when you’re sick as an adult. 

In related news, my cough syrup is the same colour and consistency and the gunk spewing from my eyes each morning. Yaaaay

TFIOS

My TFIOS bluray finally arrived.
Recently someone asked if John called Isaac that name because the cancer made his eyes sick.
And now anytime someone says his name, that’s all I can hear.

The cast & crew party for WOW is “Fiesta” themed.
As a caucasian woman from New Zealand who has absolutely no hispanic heritage or culture, I’m trying to think of a costume that will fit that theme and look amazing, without making something offensive.

I would…

I was hinting some thing mardigra, might be fairly safe. Lots of colour and fun.

Yeah I thought that way I can use one of my burlesque outfits as the base, add a headpiece, go for the extravagance of Mardi Gras rather than try to replicate a national costume.

I would appreciate suggestions and direction.

It’s nice that you’re making the effort to be non-shitty, but Jesus J Christ what a bullshit theme. It almost doesn’t matter what costume you do, considering you’ll be surrounded by dozens of people with fake mustaches and ponchos, or shitty fake “calavera” makeup. I don’t know what WOW refers to, but I can’t say I have a very high opinion of their party planners.

It’s World of Wearable Art; a fashion show meets circus meets walking art gallery. It’s awesome.
This year the Bizarre Bra section is a tribute to Zoro-esque stories, so to continue that theme they’ve chosen “Fiesta” for the wrap party.

The first year I did it the Bizarre Bra section was a sci-fi Barbarella style, so the cast party was themed “Out of This World” and I went as the TARDIS.

I’ve thought about aiming for something Mardi Gras-ish because I can relate the most to that and it ties in my burlesque performing.
