Whee! What Fun!

Today was Dallas Fan Days (aka: Comic Con) - but I'll get to that in a minute. Let's do a quick Weekend re-cap, shall we?

Friday was take-the-Aunt-shopping day. SG called and said it was "Clean the Office" at work day (the plant is closing down Oct. 31; he'll have a job until Dec. or Jan.), and was there anything I might possibly need that they might be tossing? I said, um....they had a comb binder the last time I was there.....he said "Done!"...and came home with a Fellowes electric comb binder. No manual, no combs, and no wire rack, but hey - Comb Binder! I can get the combs on MyBinding.com from $4, so....:huzzah!:

Yesterday was decent - we got the backyard cleaned up and the dumpster is FULL. I knocked out the 4 cushions for the dining room, then decide I needed to focus on summer sleeveless tops. Managed to pick out the pattern before crashing into bed. :lol:

Then - today. Today was a HUGE day, y'all. HUGE. Herself - wait, lemme give you a photo:

2016 Comic Con Tony & Bonnie

Now, to *normal* people, this looks like a girl with a guy cosplaying as Tony Stark. What it actually is, is my Aspie squee-ing over getting her photo taking with TONY STARK. She actually asked me to ask him - this is a first. She is STILL giggly over it - and the photo was taken around 11:15 this morning!

She also happily posed for photo-ops with kids who recognized her costume: Bonnie the Bunny from Five Nights At Freddy's (aka: FNAF)(Don't ask, if you don't know. Basically, haunted robots at Chuck-E-Cheese's.)(trying to kill you).

This is HUGE. HUGE. Y'all have no idea - my anti-social geek would not shut-up about the kids. Or Tony. (She has a crush, y'all. :lol: This guy had the attitude and the look of a young Tony Stark. And he did NOT break character - which really made her squee!)

SG was also happy - he got to pose with Boba Fett:

2016 Comic Con Boba Fett & SG

OK, so this guy missed the mark a little - but it's still a good costume! (SG just pulled me aside - he wants to take Herself to every Con we can get to, with ALL of us in costume. No biggie - I just need to buckle down and SEW. :lol:) (He wants to do the NG (Engy? The Engineer) from TF2; she wants me to do an Iron Man bound, and me? I have 25 yards of handwoven cotton (Jedi robes!) to work thru. Or....Herself wants me to do Jessica Rabbit next time, so we can be 2 bunnies together. :snicker: I can do vamp. The heels....well, I'll do 'em just for her. :lol: (I need to get a few more photos of her cosplay; there's a lavender bow in the back that kinda sorta resembles a tail. :innocent whistling:)

We came home with more artwork than I had planned on. I've made a discovery: IF you want to shop Cons on the cheap, wait on go on the last day, early in the morning. Almost every vendor had slashed prices - and most of the artists were offering multi-purchase deals. We got some $15 prints at 3-for-$20, for example. (!!) I have to find frames now....I was looking for 1 or 2, we came home with *9*. :blink:

I have 4 fabrics in the dryer; when I went to get some "muslin" from the armoire in the Studio a mouse jumped at me.....I yelped, then shuddered as I cut off 2 yards and overlocked it. :shudder: I settled on Butterick's 6217 - one of Gertie's. I pin-fit the pattern....we'll see how it looks in fabric before I go hog-wild with it. :lol:
