I'm alive everyone. I'm sorry I have been MIA. This month is not very easy for me. I have a lot going on with school and personal things at the moment. I'm OK, a lot of this is just anxiety/depression related stuff that gets intensified when I have a lot of stress in my life. No worries, just if I go a few days without posting this month that is why. Needless to say, I'm ready for October to be over with, and it's only the 9th!
Anyways, this past weekend I attended my first Star Trek convention. It was small I believe in comparison to to others, but it was a cool experience. I had planned on doing some nail art, but my lack of skills wore on my quickly, and I chose to do something more simple.
I started out with a base on all of my nails with Cult Nails I Got Distracted. I followed that up with doing the saran wrap technique over all my fingers except my accent nail using Orly Space Cadet. I only wish the mutil-chromeness of this showed up in this picture it looked cool!
On my accent nail I topped it off with Icing Frost Yourself (a mixture of holographic silver glitter), followed by another coat of Cult Nails I Got Distracted. I wanted to add some extra sparkle in there and this did the trick!
I really loved these nails despite my lack of nail art ability. I know I could of done some really creative things with Trek, alas, my patience was not there.
The convention was cool. I had never been to one before, and while I'm a Trek fan, there are CLEARLY bigger fans out there. I could not compete with some of these fans. I felt a little inferior actually. That being said, it was still a lot of fun. We got to sit in on a panel discussion on Doctor Who, and a discussion on sci-fi books on alternate histories/universes which was really interesting.
We also go to go to Q & A presentation with Avery Brooks. I adore him, he played Captain Benjamin Sisko in the Star Trek Series Deep Space Nine. That is my favorite Trek series. I just love the character development and intense story lines. He is really a fascinating and profound man, and it was interesting to hear his perspective of people and our lives outside of just Trek things.
I couldn't go home with out some goodies of course!
I got these cool Yoshi and Star Trek communicator things made out of perler beads made by Silly Rabbit Crafts.
So that's it!
