Alcon Cosplayers

Some more photos from my birthday weekend at Alcon. There were so many fantastic costumes, but these were some of my favourites:

Ariel from The Little Mermaid with Sebastian plushie - she's my favourite Disney Princess and the costume was really lovely.

Ike from Fire Emblem - One of my favourite series of games, he looked fab and was a real sweetie

Harley Quinn from Batman - I'm being stalked by harlequins lately, it's very surreal...

Steampunk Lady - I just love her outfit and the mini hat completed the look perfectly

Panda and Wolf Link from Zelda Twilight Princess - the wolf costume was hand made and rigged with a bit of wood so that when the person inside spoke the mouth opened and closed. How amazing is that!

Gothic Ball Jointed Doll - I might give this a go at some point as she looks really elegant

It's my Birthday!

Today is my birthday and I'm spending it at an anime and manga convention in Leicester. I'm having my first go at cosplay where I've dressed as Maka from Soul Eater. This is how she is supposed to look and below is my version.

Alex made the sythe which I am so impressed by. I can't get over the hair though as it's so close to my natural colour and I realise how much I look like my sister!

Drinks with Sarah

Last weekend I met up with Sarah for my new weekly hot chocolate and cupcake yum. We decided to try brightly coloured foods. The orange is a drink and the purple a yoghurt.

Me and Sarah being cool and enjoying our yummy foodstuffs.

I can't get cupcakes this weekend as it's my birthday and I'm going away for a long weekend with my husband. Should be lots of fun, 4 whole days together yay!

I spent a day in Switzerland for mysterious, secret reasons. It was a lovely day with beautiful clear skies. I went to Basel and explored a little a few train stops away. The houses were so pretty and I took a couple of photos.

The beR creature was in the window on the bottom floor, I was guessing a childs room.

Such pretty views of tree covered hills with clear blue sky.

I would like to go back and have a proper look around Basel as the town looked really interesting. Plus I was able to get some yummy orange lindt chocolate.

Cat love

More pictures of the cats being adorable. Below is Loki sleeping sprawled across the back of the sofa while I was crashed out on it.

Eris sleeping against my blue pyjama leg using my purple dressing gown as a cover awww.

Eris cuddling Loki (it's so hard to tell them apart sometimes, they are pretty much twins) with Morgaine behind. It's good that they all (mostly) get on.
