blog.... I've been up in the North Georgia mountains with family since Thursday and it has been an amazing Christmas weekend! I spent the first couple of days finishing my Ikkicon costume and making most of an impromptu Christmas themed anime costume, which I'll also debut at Ikkicon this coming weekend - I figure it's still close enough to the season to be valid, right?
On Christmas Day we woke up to a world in white, over 2 inches of snow covering the ground and more falling! It's been so many years since I remember having a White Christmas, and never one with this thick of a coverage. We went on a ride through the mountains and town and we took a bunch of snow pictures. After a late lunch it was time for presents!
I received some amazing gifts this year, feel really spoiled actually lol. I have a PSP to keep me company on trips now, gift certificates to buy new clothes with, a giant Stitch plush (I collect Disney's Stitch merchandise!) and an even bigger Panda bear plushie, monies, movies, clothes, a fur muffler to keep my hands warm erc. After opening presents we enjoyed a big Christmas dinner and watched Inception. I also worked on two smaller sized feather wings for customers yesterday.
Today Brian and I went on a ride through the snow on the ATV which was beautiful but very cold. As of now the snow is at 8 inches, and it's starting to get awkward to waddle through it. We're bundled up again to head to his grandparents house for another big Christmas dinner and more present openings. It's like Extended Weekend Christmas 2010! I will enjoy every minute of it and savor this relaxing time before all hell breaks loose for me in 2011 lol.
You can see some snow pics here:
I've also finally got around to making a gallery for my Inara Serra costume from Firefly, made and worn to Dragoncon 2010. I'm so happy I finally got to dress up from one of my favorite TV shows. Click to see photos and read about how I made this costume.
Hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year!
