Look, I'm Downsizing, BUT...

I really think I need this coin for the Ferryman! And it has that nifty pocket, it looks like!

And I have to wonder how differently things would have gone had I had a blood oath marker when it counted... (I mean, the ones from Ironsmith are sold out, but still.)

And just to let you know, I haven't had dealings with this company as of yet, so please, if you want to purchase from them, please do your research.

Yes. I got One.

I've got this denim jacket, see. I got it at a second hand store a friend of mine and I went into in Carpenteria. I'd been looking for one, but hadn't found a design I liked, or for the right price. I'd already been collecting patches from various places I'd been, so I could have some mementos of my travels and of my general geekiness.

The Stanley Hotel, where I spent my ten-year anniversary. Hearst Castle. The telescopes on Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii. Volcano National Park. Point Reyes, where John Carpenter filmed "The Fog."

I bought a few "geek patches." A Hallowe'en black cat. A Browncoat symbol. A skeletal cat. A zombie mermaid.

Then I got some cool patches gifted to me. Cult of the Great Pumpkin. And my most treasured gift: my Boss Film patch, given to my by my current boss in memory of his famous VFX studio.

The pins came, too. Gifts from Midsummer Scream. A gift from Chris and Jeff Davis. The Shamrock masks. Haunted Mansion. Young Frankenstein. Pacific Whale Foundation. A "Choose Love" pin from Penzeys Spices.

Now I've found another pin that I discovered I couldn't live without.

The Xenomorph from Alien. I preordered it from Art of Maquenda on Etsy. Great reviews. Beautiful work. 

It's going to look awesome on my denim jacket!

Spooky Scary Skeletons. Old School.

As a skeleton, sometimes you just have to get medieval on people...

The Wrap-Up

 Lydia Deetz, at your service.

"My whole life is a dark room..."

My costume for Halloween, which I was fortunate enough to spend at The Davis Graveyard! Because I have the best Hallowe'en friends, ever!

It was a wonderful, Pacific Northwest, Fall weekend. The weather was beautiful! Sunny, breezy, with that little chill in the air. Little, adorable, scudding clouds. Red and yellow leaves floating by. Spider webs. Gravestones. Skulls. 

The Gashleycrumb Tinies, too!

*Happy sigh* Perfection!


OK, it wasn't actually Wolverine, but it was still pretty cool to have this shot texted to me...

It was also so comforting to be among my tribe, filled with Red Dwarf and Firefly references, big hugs, and the simple happiness of being together after a very long absence. Such a warm fuzzy to be with Chris and Jeff, too!

Until next year, Davis Graveyard!
