If you’ve been following my cosplay posts, then you’ll know that I’ve spent the last year working on my most complex costume yet, Foxy the Pirate from Five Nights at Freddy’s, for the 2017 comic convention. To make things even better, this would also be the year of my first ever group cosplay. My dad agreed to dress as the security guard (Mike Schmidt, as all you FNAF fans should know), while my mom dressed as a human version of Toy Chica, complete with a bib and cupcake that I made myself. While my mom knows the series quite well (she and I have watched all five of the current games on Youtube), my dad is far less familiar with the games, having only seen my Halloween Live Stream on Virtual Bastion over a year ago.

Aside from the things already listed.
But, that’ rather boring, isn’t it? You already know what makes me happy, don’t you? Gaming and blogging and fan fiction writing, not to mention my newer hobby, cosplay. Cosplaying? So instead, this post will focus on a new way to BE happy that I just learned about. It’s something I’m sure is quite obvious to most, but it’s something that used to clash with my personality, and thus, wasn’t often employed. Continue reading 100 Theme Challenge: #14 Smile
