One Thousandth Post and NYCC 2012!!

Standard

Guess what?!?! I hit another landmark!! A couple of months ago, I hit 1,000,000 + views and today, I hit a landmark post!! This is the 1000th article published on hairscapades.com!! Wooh-hooh!! That’s a lot of content … y’all don’t need me to write anymore, right ;)?! LOL!! And, I figured, what better post to debut my newest head accessory for New York Comic Con 2012 ;)?!?! If you’ve been around since this time last year, you know about NYCC 2011 and my hair accessories of choice for that Con. But, if you missed the recap, feel free to check it out here. Although I don’t “cospay” (noun. Literally, “costume play.” The art or practice of wearing costumes to portray characters from fiction, especially from manga, animation, and science fiction.), I do like to join in the fun with my own fashion choices. Typically, it just involves a fave character tee-shirt, but I’ve gotten a little more creative in the last couple of years with the help of the internet!

I saw the above pic (left) on the Tumblr page of  Bryan Konietzko, one of Avatar: TLA creators. I immediately knew that I HAD to have it! So, I “commissioned” a friend/co-worker to knit it for me!! She was tickled pink at my silliness and immediately accepted the challenge, despite the fact that she hadn’t knitted in a few years and had never made a hat! But, I think she did a GREAT job! And, no hair worries! I’m wearing a Dri Sweat Fit Cap under it to protect my tresses from the moisture-robbing fabric (see, I brought this back around to hair ;)!

Anywho, can’t wait to debut my hat at the Con next weekend to see what kind of reaction it gets! That’s one of the very few places in the world with people who will appreciate it rather than look at me like o_O! LOL ;)!!

Alright, that’s it! I just couldn’t wait to debut my little secret anymore!! I’ve been keeping this under wraps for over a month now! But, with the Con less than a week away and this being my 1000th post, thought it was a great time to share!!

Lata Gatas!!

    • …sorry, my comment got sent unfinished…stupid computer…I was about to say, there are more comic and syfy fans out there than you know. I just found a closet Doctor Who fan last week. So random, right. Or am I the only one that watches Doctor Who?
