I'm so behind with these. Shocker. IDK. I'm sorry. I finished work on the 19th, then I had to write my Yuletide, do last-minute Xmas stuff, and obviously actual Xmas (which was surprisingly OK). All of which was fine and great, but looking back on the last few days I really have just collapsed like a puppet whose strings have been cut. Er, I also fell down a 'Person of Interest' shaped rabbit-hole. Which I may write about at some point soon. 's been fun. ;D

Tbh, I think it's been good and I was due a break. I owe comments and December posts and a couple of drabbles and a podfic, and there's other stuff I feel moved to do, and I think I'll actually be able to move on to all that lot soon.

BUT ANYWAY. Enough of that. [personal profile] goodbyebird asked me to talk about all my Wonder Woman clothes and accessories! :D And I figured since it's her birthday it might be nice to get the right day for this one. Happy birthday, sweetie, hope you've had a lovely day and fun and gorgeous presents. <3

So it's no secret I have a) a massive Wonder Woman thing b) love clothes and dressing up and c) am a cosplayer and 'stealth' cosplayer. (Too lazy to link but last year I talked about this for one of my December memes!) This means a) I buy myself a lot of WW stuff and b) it's a great present avenue for OTHERS. I'm now, as requested, going to talk about all my WW stuff and also how I acquired it. ;D

I did consider taking a PHOTO of me wearing all my WW stuff but I realised I can't actually wear it all at once, plus I'm lazy. Sorry. Anyway. ;D

It started with one T-shirt from Primark, which I still have, and is much loved.

I don't remember the order perfectly, but I've cosplayed as WW for both Nine Worlds so far, so I have several red tops I use for that, that I count as WW stuff. I have a vest, a t-shirt, several jerseys. An increasingly worn blue skirt with white polka-dots on it. I've got some bracelets made of silver card that also double up for my Thor cosplay. I've got some beautiful bracelets [personal profile] shinyjenni *made for me*. I've got THREE tiaras, one I made from gold and red glittery card, one felt one [twitter.com profile] minihannah gacve me for my birthday (or Christmas? My memory stinks) last year, one that a coworker CROCHETED for me as a goodbye present. [personal profile] spiderwolves gave me some cute elasticated faux red boots with the white stripe. I've got scads of gold ribbon I use as lasso, lasso-as-hair-control, belt, W, as I see fit.

For Christmas (or my birthday??) last year, [personal profile] carawj got me a beautiful necklace that I wear almost every day. I need to learn to clean copper jewellery.

For my birthday this year, [personal profile] carawj and [twitter.com profile] Shiiuga BOTH got me Wonder Woman bags, one is a beautiful handbag I wear all the time, the other is a gorgeous tote from Red Bubble that's done like it's for Themyscira the sports (rollerderby LBR) team. As I use totes almost every day for the stuff I can't fit in my handbag (I know) sometimes I wear them both at the same time and it's the BEST.

[personal profile] shinyjenni also got me WW-themed stuff for my birthday this year. A gorgeous length of navy blue ribbon with stars and the W across it that I frequently wear in my hair, a little W necklace that sits perfectly on my chest to stealthily simulate the W on Diana's chest. And a little lego WW that lives on my bedside table.

This year [personal profile] cosmic_llin gave me a book on Amazons, no doubt in large part due to my WW thing, though obv Amazons are RTMI anyway and the Diana thing is a little bit because of that. I got given a Greg Rucka comic for my birthday last year. (Only like the best one, i.e., Eyes of the Gorgon. <3)

I bought myself a WW iPad case. Also at some point another Primark T-shirt. Also er, *coughs* two pairs of WW converse, though the high tops don't fit and I need to sell them. (*sob*)

For Christmas, my little sister gave me WW headphones. (She overheard me tell dad I wanted them and went to quite a lot of effort to find them as I hadn't mentioned where she could buy them. <3) I can't usually tolerate big over-ear headphones but for this pair and my little sister's effort, I'm gonna see if I can figure it out.

I think that might be all my WW stuff?? (All. *snort*)

ETA: Oh! Make-up! I used to have all the colours to do WW nails, but need to replace red and blue as I was sharing [twitter.com profile] minihannah's while we lived together. I also have colours to do WW eye-shadow. :D

Now I've written it all down, it's making me think of other stuff I'd like. I'd love more WW-themed make-up. I'd love WW tights or leggings. I'd also love a dress, or that jumper pattern that goes around Tumblr sometimes. There can never be too many necklaces. Hair clips maybe? There can also never be too many t-shirts and sweaters and stuff. Basically if you're ever stuck for a present to give me you'll be hard-pressed to go wrong with Wonder Woman clothes or accessories. And even if I already have it, you can bet I'm loving and wearing and using it to death and will be so grateful for a replacement. ;D <3
