In olden days, when eagles screamed

I've had a semi-frustrating day. I taught this morning, but found that my role in class was a lot simpler than I'd imagined and wanted. Instead of teaching, I got to observe a master-teacher at work -- damn, he was good at what he did -- but I also wanted to teach too, because I love it. Deus, grant me the patience to sit on my ass and stfu while I watch and learn from such an amazing professor...

Also, guess what? This weekend is Dragon*Con! I kind of can't wait. It's the first year I'll be going with a friend from my own particular fandom (wouldn't you like to know what it is). I'll also be taking my child to the quieter parts of the con. She's a lucky little 3 year old, going to her first convention so young. Earning her geekdom stripes early! I'll take lots of photos of Alba in a fairy outfit for flickr.

Okay so: hair is free from kin, skin is free from Gala Phoenix, and the rest is well worth the money. My outfit is a fiercely sexy new release from Lavish Style. Her tiny skirts make me feel like fighting snow beasts! I'm not sure why. (Perhaps too much Xena.) The adorable little spot of a hat is a new release from Elegance Hats, and the +10 cuteness shield totally works to deflect hand axes.

***Shoes: katat0nik Bubbly Mary Janes in red
***Tattoo: Alexitimia Tattoo flower sacred heart
***Skin: Curio GP Pearl-Nightshade (group gift skin)
***Outfit: Lavish Style "Miss Flirt" in red
***Hair: Kin-kestrel-white -- (hair fair freebie, comes with the cute double headband)
***Hat: Dita Elegance Hat in red

Okay, I'll admit it-inquisitve geek wants to know what your fandom is! (I'll be at RingCon in October, doing totally respectable stuff such as presenting a paper and doing a reading of the best (i.e. bloodiest) bits of Beowulf in Old English...and doing an improv fun q&a with the fiance which they've put into the main hall...I *might* be a bit emabrrassed by that)
