365 Photo-A-Day Challenge: Week 20

It's photo time again! I've decided, that for the next little bit, I'm going to try and move away from the photo prompts and to focus on trying to come up with my own unique ideas for photos. So far I've found that I have more of an attachment to these photos, and I feel like I'll have more to say about them. Each week that I decide to avoid the prompts, I'll feature my favorite photo of that week here at the top, like this one!

This photo is from Day 138, and the reason it's my favorite is because I'm beginning to ramp up for my first convention of the year. Normally I would be getting ready to go to Anime North, which is happening this weekend, but I decided to not go this year in order to afford two cons in one years, including FanExpo in Toronto, which I've never been to before. It's sad that I won't be going to Anime North, since I've gone for 5 years in a row, but I'm open to something new, and I hope I'll be able to keep myself distracted while Anime North is going on. This choker is part of my cosplay for Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite. I asked on Twitter and Instagram whether I should wear the bird or the cage for my first day at Niagara Falls Comic Con. I got one answer that it should be the bird, so that's what I'm going with :)

Day 134

This was taken when I was still considering sticking to the prompts, and the prompt for day 134 was Crawly. But even so, it seemed like a unique opportunity to take a shot of a spider that was crawling so precariously across the glass on the back door. I lucked out that it was stalled on a spot where you could see all of its legs clearly.

Day 135

I love love LOVE this picture, and it would've been my favorite for this week if I wasn't in such a convention frame of mind at the moment. This is a shot where you can see 2 items that came with my recent ModCloth order. Obviously I'm in love with these socks, and the dress I'm wearing in this shot is really amazing as well. I remember really liking the foot shots I've seen +Jen Giammarco post from time to time, and here I finally got the chance to post my own, plus it's adorable!

Day 136

Here's a picture I'm particularly proud of, mainly because I can look at it and say "WOULD YOU LOOK AT ALL THIS COOL STUFF?!? YEAH, IT'S ALL MINE, I GOT IT AT MICHAELS, IT'S ALL AMAZING, BE JEALOUS OF ME. THAT'S RIGHT, BE JEALLLLLOUS!" I went with my mother to Michaels, bought a crap ton of stuff and now I can't wait until I get to start mailing out stuff again :)

Day 137

Here's a time, finally, where I get to talk about my gaming fun on this blog. Turns out, when you write a blog that for the majority of the time focuses on snail mail, you don't get to chat about XBOX or PC games all that much XD But here is a glimpse of my avatar I use on my XBOX 360. I got that shirt she's wearing from winning Saints Row 4. I haven't changed her hair to match mine in a while, I should probably do that. My handle is MotorDaffodil63. Add me if you'd like :)

Day 139

Yesterday was the first time I've ever visited a Goodwill before. This visit was also related to my upcoming convention; I'd gone to Goodwill to try and find some boots that would match with my costume. I did end up finding something that works. This is just a picture of the top of one of the clothing aisles, the tops of which are loaded with all sorts of items available for purchase. The rain had started to clear up too, so the light in this shot was pretty nice.

Day 140

Yep. Those are rocks. These are two of the rocks that line the traffic circle at the end of my street, right before it hits a small park. When I was little I used to climb on top of these rocks, and I would feel so tall. I also remember trying to jump between them. It was quite the feel when I was little and had shorter legs, some of the gaps between rocks were pretty big. I felt so victorious during those few times when I'd make it all the way around the semi-circle though :) That was always fun.
