Hi friends! I’m a few days late on my Casual Cosplay Connections, as per usual, but I still wanted in on the fun so here I am! This month’s theme was ‘Strong Female Characters,’ and although I have some qualms with that particular trope (I mean, have you encountered a female character that isn’t strong in one way or another?!), I do have a favorite badass lady that I wanted to pay homage to.

Liz Lemon from 30 Rock! Sure, she isn’t strong in a physical sense, and she sure as hell isn’t super put together…but she’s independent, she doesn’t take any shit, and she’s down-to-earth. Basically, she’s awesome.

Not quite as awesome is my low-quality cell phone pic. Really, I should talk my husband into taking my photos for this segment, but selfies are so much easier for me when I’m alone. Does anyone else deal with that silly self-concious thing? I need to get over it.

Anyway, I wanted to say thanks again for all the kind words these past few weeks. It’s been hell, but I’m back home now and just trying to feel normal again. Thank you to the super sweet ladies who offered to guest post for me while I just plain had no will or time to write, it really helped me out. Thanks to Liana and Stacey for being two of the most amazing humans and surprising me with an emergency care package, it made me smile and laugh out loud when I just felt like crying moments before. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this community is so full of loving and supportive women. Thank you all for being you<3

Thank you to Danielle and Charlie for creating such a fun monthly segment! If you didn’t join in this month, who would you have chosen to cosplay as?
