STARFLEET OFFICER LEIA!!! brb taking notes
It was really good. I especially liked it because we were at Star Wars Celebration and I am loath to to support any of that star wars v star trek (or any franchise vs any franchise) nonsense so she was a welcome sight.
oh hey, I have 221 followers, there’s a sherlock holmes joke in here somewhere.
I still have no idea why you all suddenly decided I was worthy of following but thanks!
State Senator Will Join Wendy Davis On The Campaign Trail -
the-treble:Texas state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte (D) announced her bid for lieutenant governor on Saturday. Speaking at the San Antonio College gymnasium before hundreds of supporters, Van de Putte made her plans to join Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) on the campaign trail official.
Fuck yeah! Let’s not forget state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte who helped Wendy Davis during her filibuster of the abortion law!
Famous for her great line, “At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?”
You’ve got some great ladies running, Texas.
DYING OF HAPPINESS
How brilliant would Governor Davis and Lieutenant Governor Van de Putte be?
oh hell yes
DIY Captain Marvel Star Christmas Tree topper.
Made out of discarded cardboard, a empty toilet paper roll, too many coats of yellow acrylic craft paint and elmer’s glue. I used the star stencil provided by ourwhitehotroom.
It does look a bit ridiculous all the way up there, though, doesn’t it? Gonna have to cut that down a bit.
I was reminded today, as I considered cosplay options for Dragon*Con, of this really excellent Starfleet Officer Leia I saw a couple years back at Celebration. What’s funny is I can’t actually remember if she was wearing white or command yellow, but her hair was in the ionic buns. It worked really well and I’m disappointed I can’t find a picture because it was so good (and I want to remember what her dress color was).
I think that’s my favorite kind of cosplay. Screen accurate anything is impressive as all get out, but I like seeing people just fuck with it. Its always cool to see how someone make an ironic image their own, especially when it stays in line with the character itself. We all know Leia was command anyway, working her way up to admiral.
It makes me think of what other franchises would look good in that uniform.
