I realized recently that I didn't give you any of the finished group shots of last years SL ComicCon costumes. We got a lot of attention as Gracie Law (or the girl with green eyes) and LoPan. In fact, as we were walking to the building some lady made her shuttle pull over so she could yell from the open door "GRACIE LAW!!!!" I think these are going to be cycled into a regular con schedule.
No one recognized us for Marvel Noir day which my brother was sad about but we discovered sushi burritos so I consider that a win.
A total of 4 people recognized Agatha Heterodyne and Gilgamesh Wolfenbach. That wasn't a big deal because John still got stopped often because the hat he made was so stinkin' cool. It was a big hit. I personally think this will make it back in the con rotation because it was comfortable and I felt like we looked good which contributes to the aforementioned comfort.
We are already starting to throw ideas around for 2016 because heaven forbid we take a break ;)
Now to the reason why it's been so long. After Comic Con we went to visit family, had way to many funerals to attend and then started work for Gamefest at Starfest Denver. We've done a ton of escape rooms this year, somewhere around 22. I've also been hard at work trying to make sure the organizations I volunteer for have up to date yearly calendars and doing the whole marketing thing.
In at least two areas of my life I've been asked to step into a leadership role. This has been challenging. Not only has there been spiritual warfare associated with it but there have been some internal brain talk that hasn't helped me either. I have spent a large percentage of my life avoiding leadership. There are a couple reasons for this. I have organizing skills, and an almost fanatical work ethic. I do not have the patience, understanding or diplomacy to convince people that they should do what they say their going to do when the say they're going to do it. This generally makes me the girl friday to the people in leadership. I am confident that the Lord arranged these leadership opportunities partially because I didn't ask for them. I am also confident that the Lord is going to do this. I know I can't do this and I KNOW that God can. The challenge now is remembering that God is going to do this rather than noticing the challenges, hurtles and obstacles. That's true of anything I can think of.
Like all of you, my life is full. Troubles and triumphs galore. I've had tons of profound thoughts recently *har har* but didn't get them down before they were gone. Sorry about that. But it has reminded me to come back and at least give you an update.
