How To Make Your Cosplay Full Of Holiday Cheer

It's time to grab your Santa caps and Krampus horns kids! Let's talk about turning your already done cosplay into a Holiday Spectacular cosplay by adding a few simple accessories. If you're a scrooge you may want to avoid reading the rest of my article. If you're a big 'ole geek like me that's into over-accessorizing let's go on a holiday adventure.

Here's my Zatanna cosplay before getting a Holiday makeover:

Pretty standard Zatanna cosplay. I'm sure a lot of you have cosplays ready for over-holiday-accessories. I decided to add a red corset to this ensemble, and a candy cane wand. It worked out pretty well. I even got to pull Santa out of my top hat. It was a little difficult, but..anyway, check out the after:

All you need is to incorporate some holiday green and red into your cosplay. Maybe add in a cute Santa hat. If you have an accessory, try adding some ribbon to it. Bows, and fur trim go a long way to make a point of holiday cuteness. If you're an evil character why not play on Krampus? Add some goat horns to your fur trim and Santa jackets. Trust me, you can't go wrong.

Here's another example of a super cute Harley Quinn cosplay:

Why yes this is the adorable Rachel Freeman dressed as Harley Quinn! Notice how she accessorized her cosplay with a Santa hat and a cute little Santa belt! Also note her holiday inspired jewelry. Just try to imagine what your character would wear when dressed up for the holidays. And, who doesn't love cosplay during the holidays?! Scrooges, that's who.

If you would like to see more photos of our Harley Quinn and Zatanna holiday cosplays they can be purchased here. I had a lot of fun working with David Bruffy to bring his Naughy or Nice photoshoot to life. So, if you like boudoir style photography and a cutesy holiday theme check out the link. Happy Holidays my nerdlings!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
