Pullman Comic-Con!

So if you haven't already heard, little Pullman, Washington is having it's first ever Comic-Con on February 1st.

I. Am. Excited.

Mostly, because I get to dress up (because obviously!) and bask in all things nerd instead of going to work!

So anyways, now I have to decide who I will be dressing up as. Which, if you know me and know how terrible I am at making decisions, is going to be a task.

I've had some suggestions, thought of some myself, and am open to even more suggestions. I don't have too much more time, but I can sew and I am fantastic at throwing things together last minute.

Okay so as usual, my doppelgangers HAVE to be possible options. Problem is, I apparently have multiple that makes things difficult. All options, doppelgangers or not, are being considered!

Here they are (in no particular order!):

1. Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter)
A classic. I already have everything I need to successfully be Ginny. And let's be honest, I already AM Ginny. (Plus, for the book fans, I have the correct color eyes.)

2. Amy Pond (Doctor Who)
Again, I already have everything I need to be Amy, as I have dressed as her before. Plus I'd get to attempt my Scottish accent. Which actually might be a bad thing....

3. Mary Jane Watson/any Kirsten Dunst character like ever (Spiderman)
Mary Jane would be my first choice of K-Dunst characters, because 1. Spiderman and 2. Ginger. Also, it would be pretty easy to come up with this costume.

4. Anna of Arendelle (Frozen)
I LOVE ANNA. She is me. I am her. WE ARE AWKWARD. Personality-wise, this might literally be the easiest character for me to be. Costume-wise, it might be a little difficult to come up with. Oh but have you seen my Anna Tiara? It just might be fate.

5. Rikku (Final Fantasy X & X-2)
Now...this could get a little...well. Anyways, there are a TON of options for costume when it comes to Rikku. She was in TWO games, one of which was essentially a dress up game (And I continue to enjoy every minute of it!), so the above examples are only two of like 20 options. I was Songstress Rikku for Halloween like Sophomore year of High School, I might still have that costume somewhere, BUT I always said that if I got to go to a comic-con, and I was in good enough shape, I would go as Thief Rikku.....It's a cold, cold possibility....

6. Kaylee Frye (Firefly)
Now don't hate me, but I haven't seen Firefly (YET!!! I HAVE IT, JUST HAVEN'T WATCHED IT) but I have seen Serenity, so I definitely know who Kaylee is. I've had two people suggest her now so I'm giving it some real thought. This one could be fun.

7. Kahlan Amnell (Sword of Truth Series/Legend of the Seeker)
I'll be honest, I was (AM) I HUGE Legend of the Seeker fan. I absolutely LOVED the television series and was so sad to see it go. And I may or may not have a level 3 girl crush on Kahlan Amnell/Bridget Reagan. Kahlan is such a bad ass. I could make myself the epic white dress (or really any of them) and walk around confessing people. You have to admit, it would be awesome.

8. Cara Mason (Legend of the Seeker/Sword of Truth Series)
I hadn't even thought of this until I was looking up images for Kahlan. But damn. This would be terribly difficult to pull off, but SO AWESOME.

Can you see why I'm so terrible at making decisions now? That's why, internets world, I need your help. Have a suggestion? Think one of the above choices is awesome? Tell me! 

You are my only hope!


  1. If you have the time to do Kahlan I think that would be super awesome :) If you don't think you'll have time to make it, I think Amy.

  2. If I were in town to do your hair I'd suggest Merida, but that would also be a difficult costume. So maybe you pick your favorite, try for it, and if you can't find what you need use Ginny as a fall back. Depends on if (and what kind) of nerd mate you're looking to attract! :)
