My two favorite pictures from c2e2 2013.

My friend Josh and I at Comic Con! I was a ‘casual’ Dark Phoenix (I wasn’t going to dress up today ‘cause it was a short day but I just threw it together) and Josh is the Clock King!

For all my nerdy, cosplaying friends out there, here’s a nerdtastic before/after. Clean eating and working out = 60+ pounds lost.

i met ron perlman and you didn’t 


i’m such a derpy fangirl

This dude on Facebook drew a fanart of me as Dark Phoenix O: 

Candid shots! Me being a derp and some adorable little boy asking for a picture.

Dark Phoenix test for C2E2. Working on Phoenix Force “flame wings” now. Herp derp.

A lot can change in a short period of time. It’s been a year and a half since I completely and totally changed my life. Looking in the mirror is almost surreal now. I think that might be why my body image is so distorted, because I’m not used to seeing this reflection looking back at me. I’m still working on accepting my body, and still losing a few more pounds, but I have been feeling a lot better about my body lately. Forgive my ramblings, but I’m just thinking out loud, I suppose.
