Stuck in Fictional Worlds

Hi! I'm Stacie. Recent college grad and foreign language teacher. I spend too much time reading and playing video games and cosplay is one of my favorite (and most expensive) hobbies.
This is just my life as it happens :)
I'm sure you will see lots of Dragon Age, Doctor Who, Teen Wolf, Disney, Buffy, maybe some Psych, anime, and the list goes on!

Things I should be doing:

  • Working on cosplay
  • Unpacking
  • Sleeping maybe?

What I am doing:

  • Crying because Digimon is coming back next year with the original characters and I just really love Digimon okay!
  • Also, planning a Digimon cosplay. Like right now. And thinking about how I could finish it before Kumoricon…

… I cannot add a new cosplay… but what if I do….

For some reason, over 2000 lovely people have decided to follow me.
So I’ve decided to have my very first giveaway! Yaaay!
Seeing as my talents are cooking and baking, and the odd gif and edit, I asked the boyfriend to draw something for the winners.
There will be 3 winners, and I will contact them via ask/fanmail when the giveaway is over. If they do not respond within 24hours, I will pick new ones. The winners will be randomly picked.

The prizes are:

First prize: Full colour drawing of one character of your choice.
Second prize: Full flat colour of a character of your choice.
Third prize: Line art of a character of your choice.

The rules are as follow:

- Only people who follow me, new and old alike. (Although I would be a sad puppy if you only follow for the chance of pretty arts)
- No giveaway blogs. I will check.
- 2 entries max: one like and one reblog.
- The giveaway ends on Saturday, 9th of August.

Good luck everyone, and thanks for following me! :)

getting goosebumps!! <3

That Emma Stone gif portrays me perfectly right now. ;___;

This is so beautiful. THIS IS DISNEY.

I’m seriously crying right now

dreams do come true :’)

I lost it at the Ohana part

This is epic

all my feels





never get tired of this MAH GOD right in the kokoro


Ugly happy tears oh my god


Holy smoke, it’s like I just had my childhood blasted at me and all those memories of watching Disney. Nearly made me want to cry. I’m forever favouring this video, till the end of time. Forever!


All of the GIFS are accurate!!! <3


So good!!!  This is probably one of the best Disney mash-ups I’ve seen so far. :)

Reblogging it on here too because you guys need to see this. :)

Currently starting a new playthrough of DA2 (it’s been a while). I’m waiting for the Origin’s import screen right now, then Henri Hawke will be a go

… I know, her name is Henri Hawke…

It’s time once again for another con write-up. This was again one of the best cons I’ve ever been to! It was awesome to meet-up with my friends from last year (vyrantium and atypicalprincecharming!) our artist friends at scuttlebuttink and my favorite place to spent a lot of money optimysticals! We also made some new friends who want to cosplay with us in the future! 

I played some awesome games thanks to IndieCade (Triad was so frustrating, but fun and  Hate Plus was beautiful!) We watched a lot of people play Perfect Woman, enough so, that I really want it too… Except it’s for the Kinect so I can’t play it… But it was so much fun to watch :)

Now for the Bioware stuff. We went to all of the Bioware panels so I heard a lot. The Building a Better Romance panel was by far my favorite (expect maybe the conversation between David Gaider and Patrick Weekes about the word “straighty”. That was hilarious. I don’t think I’ve heard that word used so many times in one conversation…) My super highlight was getting to ask about if they would consider asexual romances (that’s me on the video if you find it). Last year I locked eyes with Jessica Merizan and we ended up having to stand up in a room of two hundred people. This year, I got to ask a question. Not that it wasn’t as scary… 

After the panel we all got to talk to all of the devs. It was pretty dang amazing to talk to Robin about the VO work and Jessica about cosplay. We also have a picture with Karin’s absolutely amazing Celene cosplay (it’s my blog picture if you want to find it. It’s also on Twitter). That was followed by the cosplay contest which was amazing and the winners were all beautiful.

The dev signing the next day was also great. I got my copy of The Masked Empire signed by all of the devs and a really awesome card (pics to come later) of Morrigan signed by all! I also got to tell Jessica how amazing I think she is and how much I love following her work. She in turn told us we are amazing, which made me so happy :) I’m still kinda on cloud nine after the whole weekend. It was amazing (even if I did spend more than my budget…)

If you were there and saw us, or just want to fan about the whole experience, send me a message! I can’t wait until the next one (hopefully it is in August again so I can make it… Or late July. I’m gonna be out of the country starting in December)




I just realized that “mini” is short for “minimal” and I feel like my whole life has been turned upside down

Wait that’s not even true it’s short for “miniature” FUCK MY LIFE

minimal golf. not too much golf. just enough golf so it wont piss you off.

if u don’t think music is important u need to remember that 13 dwarves convinced bilbo baggins to rob a dragon just by singing about it

We are leaving for GaymerX in under 6 hours. I am still working. I will likely be working for another 30-45 mins. I am so glad I am not the first driver….



I’ve been working on my costume for… 3 hours now plus the 2 earlier. And I still have so much to do… I am going to be so glad when it is done… As much fun as it is going to be to wear (and super comfortable too!), it has been a rough couple of days.

I honestly didn’t think I was going to have to paint more fabric…

To Do List:

  • Wait for fabric to dry
  • Remake gloves
  • Make boot covers
  • Make knee pads (maybe have to go to Joann’s again…)
  • Finish hood
  • Finish arm bracers
  • Make clay buckles
  • Finish very unnecessary arm straps…
  • Make shoulder guards
  • Attach shoulder guards to over-vest
  • Finish by adding buttons to hood
  • Style wig
  • Pick out make-up from my large collection
  • Practice make-up

And this must all be done before Thursday morning when we leave for GaymerX.

… I’m not sure I’m gonna make it… Wish me luck!!!

Update 24 hrs later. We are T-minus 3 days, 5 hours until we leave for GaymerX

Also added:

  • Finish adding trim to whole dress (this is the most time consuming pieces left…)
  • Go to store and get invisible hair ties and shoe inserts

We are now T-minus… 7 and a half (OMG!!!) hours and counting until we leave (I am going to probably going to go to bed in… 2 hours…) I now just need to finish up the trim! Yay!
