Cosplay is the most sincere form of flattery.

Every once in awhile I’ll end up in a magazine or win an award or something, and that’s very nice, but I’m almost positive that what happened yesterday was the most squee-inducing and flattering thing ever.

I got a bunch of tweets from people claiming to have seen me at DragonCon, but I assured them I wasn’t there because I’m an anxiety-riddled hermit who seldom leaves the house, and then I started hearing rumors that there was someone at the Con cosplaying as me.  And it was more spectacular than I could have ever imagined:

Rollers. Traveling red dress. Glasses. Earrings with Beyonce-the-giant-metal-chicken on them. The only thing missing is a taxidermied wolverine.

Related:  Holly Nicole just won the internet.  We can all go home now.  Someone get the lights.

************

Oh, hang on.  Don’t leave just yet.  I forgot that it’s Sunday and that means it’s time for this week’s wrap-up:

What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):

This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:

This week’s wrap-up is sponsored by the fantasmagoric folks at Swagbucks, a site that gives you FREE gift cards to Amazon, Target, etc. just for doing stuff online.  To date, they’ve given away $42 million in rewards, and they once saved 5 turtles trapped in sweater drawer.  I made up the turtle part but the $42 million part is legit.  Earn swag bucks for taking surveys, shopping online, or watching videos and redeem them in the Rewards Store.  You can sign up here.

    Holly Nicole

    This was my first Con and just putting the dress on made me happy that I was being dorky and ridiculous and I didn’t care if no one else got it. I don’t know why, but I didn’t expect many people to recognize the red dress. There were so many Star Wars and Star Trek and My Little Pony and Disney crossover costumers that I figured people would just think I was going as Princess Wonder Woman (one person did ask that). I certainly didn’t expect the overwhelming outpouring of love from all over the globe. You guys have no idea how incredibly, furiously, uncontainably happy you all have made me feel and I want to pass that along. Serioulsy, I feel like Dash at the end of The Incredibles, “That was the BEST vacation EVER!! *sigh of contentment* I love our family”.

    My work computer won’t let me open the traveling red dress website, so I can’t figure out how to “officially” donate this one to the cause, thus I’m going to just put it up here: I will loan the dress to the first person who emails me their mailing address (within the U.S. or Canada only, sorry – I can’t afford international shipping). I say loan because, like Sam Vimes, I’m a suspicious bastard and I don’t want anyone to think they can sell it to someone else or try to make a proft off of it, but feel free to pass it on. It is a thing of joy and is supposed to be shared – ‘though I imagine that everyone in this audience already knows that ;o)

    The dress is a size 18/20 and likely wouldn’t fit anyone smaller than that, but there’s a 3 to 4-inch modesty panel under the corset lacings, so it should go up a few sizes. note: if you’re “top-heavy” like me, you’ll need a proper backless/strapless bra to hold you up – the stays in the dress are not strong enough on their own and it might make you feel sad, as it did me the first time I tried it on.

    @ Lisa: I didn’t think the airlines would let me bring anything taxidermied, but I had small buttons of Juanita and Copernicus pinned to the ruffle of the bodice.

    @Sandra: I was going to gut my old conair and make a hairdryer purse, but I ran out of time (I made 3 other costumes) and didn’t feel like carrying that clunker around all day.

  116. A shout out to the brave ‘plus size’ folks of the world. I have nothing against skinny people, I’m just not one of them. Seeing this post, and in particular Holly’s generous offer to send the dress on, lightens my heart just a little. It comes at a good time; it’s been a rough day, following a rough week during which I believed the lies of depression and my eating disorder.

    From a size 18/20 woman who isn’t brave enough to dress so beautifully, I thank you for going out and being awesome.

  122. Well, I’m going to be useless for the rest of the day… dreaming of a David Tennant and John Barrowman sandwich.
    For snuggles. Maybe we’ll even invite the fox.

  124. Totally what Cosplay is supposed to be about. Holly gets a gold star for the day/year/lifetime!

    And as for the “Where Bloggers Blog” site, I think Jenny is the only blogger with a real office. Or at least the only one who seriously submitted a picture of their office. My favorite is the blogger who took a picture of their toilet! Not the most comfortable place to spend a lot of time typing, though.

  127. Bisaya People can’t seem to open the Swagbucks website, and is that because we’re Filipino? Is the internet racist? Help! More free stuff here, where everything is not free, because, you know, almost all are mindblowingly in poverty? But seriously, what gives Swagbucks? Your twitter is so amazingly good at not replying,too, so any help out there?

  129. Given that I saw Victoria Belmont of Cosplay Burlesque do her Bloggess routine at Interventioncon last year… I guess I could say that not only did I see you at a con, you were taking your clothes off.

    Ahem.

  132. My husband has written a fantasy novel and desperately wants to attend a DragonCon to promote it. I keep saying no because cosplay freaks me out. That’s really my only reason. However, if people at DragonCon would start trying to look/dress like me, I could support it, as there’s nothing disturbing about large groups of women-like characters wearing lounge pants and zip hoodies, except for the obvious laziness re: personal hygiene.

    And yes, YouTube made a good call that day, too.🙂
