Batgirl of Burnside

Last year when they announced they were changing the story, writers, and artist for the Batgirl comic book series, I knew I wanted to read it. The new image of Batgirl in her updated costume and the description from the new writers, Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart, that compared the writing and story to 'Veronica Mars' sold me.

Since the first issue of Batgirl that I read (#35), I've been hooked. It's one of my favourite comic books that I read currently. And I find myself taking in every bit of the art because Babs Tarr is amazing and I love how she draws everything.

Barbara Gordon has easily become one of my favourite people in the comic book world. And Batgirl has become one of my favourite superheroes. It's all thanks to the super talented team working on the series currently.

So of course I'd like to dress like Batgirl. Her new costume is amazing and there's no way you wouldn't feel tough and confident in it.

I would love to put together an Everyday Cosplay look for Batgirl in real life. I have some things that work but I will always be on the look out for the perfect yellow shoes and belt. I think they would make any all black outfit more Batgirl-like.

Have you read any of the new Batgirl series? What do you think?

  1. You should definitely do a Barbara Gordon cosplay! I've always thought you look a little bit like her so can't wait to see how you'd look in her clothes.

  2. Ooooh - that outfit is AMAZING!! Want those boots MUCHLY; and have just realised I need to get some yellow shoes ASAP (can't wear yellow clothes due to my vast amounts of yellow hair, but I reckon hair and shoes is OK :) ) xxx

    1. Yellow hair and shoes are very ok, but I think clothes would be fine too. I don't shy away from red clothes ^_^

  3. Keep trawling around thrift stores. Last year my girlfriend found an absolutely perfect purple leather jacket that was great not only for a convention cosplay, it's also good for day-to-day use!

    1. I check all the time! I'd also love to find a jacked to do a Star-Lord cosplay!

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
