International Fairy Day

According to the site “Days of the year” it is International Fairy Day:

Fairy Day is a day for fairies, magic, and wishes to come true. For one day, put aside the cynicism of the modern world and embrace the possibilities of the unknown, and believe in fairies…

So I bring you a picture a picture of me dressed up like Kaylin the Pixie Enchanter, my favourite character from the game Red Dragon Inn, accompanied by my housemate as Thor and a friend as a female Deadpool as we posed at F.A.C.T.S. last year.

RDI3-kaylin

The first time I dressed up as Kaylin was at the yearly Thunderbolts gaming for Muco weekend a few years back.
During that weekend there’s typically a family day on Sunday, a miniature war game tournament on Saturday and some goofy boardgaming fun on Friday, all to raise money towards cystic fibrosis to which we lost a member (the sweet son of a dear friend).

Geeky girl

I used to think of myself as a “geek by proxy” but the last few years I’ve realised I’m a geeky girl in my own right.

I love my fandoms (Doctor Who, Marvel, Minions,…), I love my graphic novels, I LARP, I paint figurines, I occasionaly cossplay and go to conventions,..

And most of all: I’m proud to show it.
Thanks to the likes of Teefury and Qwertee and two house mates who also like to get their geek on (and order t-shirts on my behalf – Love you guys!), my collection of geeky t-shirts has boomed for the past 2,5 years. I now own a whopping 25 shirts and tops. And I try to put on something geeky every Friday, making my own version of casual Friday: Geeky Friday.
