Mother of Dragons

I am Daenerys Stormborn, of House Targaryen. Rightful heir to the Iron Throne, Queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, the Rhoynar, and the First Men. I am the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, and Breaker of Chains. The Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen.

Daenerys Targaryen – George R. R. Martin

Protected by her three dragons:

  • Drogon, named after Khal Drogo, black with red markings. Larger and more aggressive than his siblings, he is also the mount of Daenerys Targaryen.
  • Rhaegal, named after Rhaegar Targaryen, green with bronze markings.
  • Viserion, named after Viserys Targaryen, creamy white, with gold markings.

When Game of Thrones first came out, I fell in love with Daenerys Targaryen’s character – her style, her attitude, and her resolve. She knew what her birth right was, she stuck with her goal, and ended up proving to herself and the world that the titles she claimed were truly who SHE was.

I first debuted this at Kelowna Flightcraft, my 4th year of being part of the tradition Finance, IT, and other support staff who didn’t have to be out working on the planes, along with a few creative technicians who would manage to somehow work it into their everyday clothes, would get a chance to take a break from the norm and gather together and take a pic at lunch.

The next time I wore it was at the third Annual Winter is Coming Party, of which I don’t have any pictures of, but here’s the soundtrack!

I then had the pleasure of meeting ‘Jon Snow’ while I was first looking for a group to shoot GOT pictures with at the Penti-con, you can find more her work here.

I then ran into Jon at Vancouver Fan Expo 2018, you can find his work here.

Jon Snow & His Mighty Wolf!

Seems I’ve found my dragons in human form….#gogopowerrangers

We then met up almost a year and a half later from our original meeting to trek through the ice and snow to show WINTER IS COMING!! (For Behind the Scenes, Click Here!)

DC World – Raven

Raven is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in a special insert in DC Comics Presents #26 (October 1980), and was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez. The daughter of a demon father (Trigon) and human mother (Arella), Raven is an empath who can teleport and control her “soul-self“, which can fight physically, as well as act as Raven’s eyes and ears away from her physical body. She is a prominent member of the superhero team Teen Titans. The character also goes by the alias Rachel Roth as a false civilian name.Q

I first fell in love with Raven while watching Teen Titans in the mid 2000’s. The sadness within her soul stems from a knowledge of what is yet to come, echoes forward into her dark, rude, yet kind persona, and when it comes the time for her to fulfil what is said to be her destiny, she chooses her friends and forges a new path ahead.

5 years ago, I made the Raven cosplay you see regularly in my collection, not from the comfort of my own home but from an apartment I had to stay in due to circumstances beyond my control. This didn’t stop me from completing my goal, and this costume has allowed me to bring laughter and smiles to many!!

I’m so happy when people who truly love her see this cosplay!! I know she’s become more popular due to the newer cartoon and live series (which I haven’t seen, I feel any trailers I’ve seen don’t do the titans justice) but I chose her long before she was known, because she was unknown. I also I feel connected to her past, making her one of the characters I attribute as part of my personality, which makes me feel truly like her when I’m cosplaying! (However, some days, I fall to being more like her ‘white’ self! Maybe one of these days that outfit will make an appearance….)

RAOC – Random Acts of Costuming

When I first met the RAOC group at the Kelowna Fan Expo (ie KFX), I never expected I’d become a part of something so wonderful! However, as I got to know them, I found out that Cap and his dad Mr. Incredible always had a goal in mind – to spread random happiness, hope and cheer to those in need. So I answered the call and joined his band of mismatched heroes, villains, puppets and princesses, our troupe ever growing!

One of the most memorable occasions for me was our walk through the mall for last year’s Halloween (2019) with Ursula and Batman, spreading smiles and holiday cheer!

As we were heading out, we picked up Spiderman, who became ever faithful in our efforts to ensure our mission was achieved.

Our continued visits caught the attention of Castanet, which interviewed us on our second to last visit before COVID hit.

Cap’s Heart is Revealed in this Video

This group has touched my life and I know many many others, and I do hope sometime in the near future we can meet again to spread love, cheer and hope to those in need.

Anime Revolution 2019

I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I know this is a little late, but with no cons happening this year, it’s allowed me a little time to catch up on a few things such as uploading the content I snapped the last few years, updating my websites, being more faithful on social media and such like!

This Thursday, I’d like to highlight Summer 2019 Ani-Revo, (otherwise known as Anime Revolution or AR!)

I went to the event as Ruby from RWBY, stoked to be at my first EVER AR!

I rode the skytrain in ensuring it was all clear of GRIMM!

One of the things I love about going to these events is meeting all the interesting and talented people here! This event allowed me to make some wonderful connections, such as a young film maker and cosplayer dressed as Midoriya who recently featured me in a video at this event, check that out here:

I ran into my sister Yang!

A cute black mage:

Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service!

My sis again! Stood up at the altar I’m afraid so she’s a little FIRED UP!

Now here’s a story that really only comes from going to events like these! Met these amazing peeps as they wandered around with a Jukebox singing ‘I WANT IT THAT WAY’ OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN I COULDN’T STOP LAUGHING AND SINGING ALONG!!! Still to this day, t.c._c0splay5 and I chat on a regular basis, and he tunes into my streams every week, and we reminisce and look forward to the next time that all of us WEEB AVENGERS will unite once again!

Met MASTER CHEF!

The video below really only catches the tail end of an example of some of the shenanigans we get up to at these events!

It’s also where I met my fearless Twitch Team Leader ‘SPOC‘ who has been using my platform to promote other streamers with common interests while I’m not streaming. Be sure to check out his stream and follow/subscribe!

And on the way out I ran into Jon!!!!

Compliments – A Tool So Often Misused

I came across this article this morning, “Self-Sabotage in Relationships and the One Question We’re Not Asking” by Crystal Jackson, and the words ‘Men compliment us, and if we don’t fall over with gratitude, they act like we’re egomaniacs.’ – stuck out to me. Personal experience as a Cosplayer and a woman, I’ve been complimented in the past, then when I haven’t answered back the way they hoped for, the person will either become moody, or continue pushing to the point of harassment in hopes of achieving their desired result.

It proceeds to say ‘The compliment isn’t really a compliment then, is it? It’s just a tool they use to get what they want. Otherwise, it would be freely given, without expectations attached. ‘ The writer then goes into detail of how she doesn’t even bother reading messages that start with a compliment, followed up by a question that was clearly answered by a quick look at her bio, finished off with a sentence starting a relationship with her without bothering to ask if she was interested. (Sound familiar?)

Compliments are just compliments, and too many people, men and women alike, use these to get what they want, and don’t bother asking if the person is truly interested in them or the project they are working on. This needs to be recognized as a form of manipulation and needs to be stopped.

I feel the article’s title is a bit off-topic, however I feel that it provides us the solution to the problem so many people face. “We need to start asking! It’s not wrong to be interested and to even reach out and communicate that interest. To proceed as if our interest is implied by our very existence is ridiculous.

I give away random compliments daily in an effort to make this world a brighter place, but I don’t expect anything extra from providing it, nor do I use them to get my way, and I get right irate at those who think their smooth words are going to push me into doing something I don’t care or want to do. Like anything, compliments can be used for good or bad, it’s how we use them that counts. Ask yourself, am I using this compliment for something? If so, is it to make the world a better place? Or is it for personal gain? Each one of us holds this tool, it’s up to you to choose how it’s used!
