I have far, far too many things to read. Even so, when I come across a recommendation that piques my interest, I'll pop it to the top of the list. So it is I can thank Forever Young Adult for putting this zippy, delightful graphic novel on my radar.
Thing is, it stirred feelings. Cosplay sorts of feelings. Granted, aside from the story, it's because of the swords. And the wonderful attitude. And the boots. The boots are excellent. I know I should really be about twenty years younger, and twenty pounds lighter, and possessed of even the most basic sewing skills to cobble this costume together...
Still. If I could get this going, I might just have the confidence to visit - and enjoy - a con, in costume.*
She's sort of excellent, y'all.
*I've friends who do amazing, seemingly effortless cosplay, and have a great deal of fun in the process. I am in AWE.
