I met so many new nerds this year! I've been missing all you folks while I'm on the other side of the world... and even though it's been a great time, I can't wait for future cons, events and shoots! Hope you're all living your best lives, and 2019 brings good fortune to your geekdom! .

Feeling real FOMO over #fandays so throwing it back to Dolores at Fan Expo from this past summer. Hoping to bloody her up and bring her back for some convention in the future!

Went to the Weta Cave today and got to learn all about the making of the props, makeup, special effects and digital work done on some truly incredible films including: The Lord of the Rings The Hobbit, Narnia, Avatar and so many others! An awesome experience for film nerds!

And I got to fight an orc! .

Hiked through Mordor to Mount Doom today! And though I think I had an easier time than Frodo, next time I'm finding a Sam to carry me up 😆
. (And yes I know, CGI volcano fire would make it so much better)

I do try and keep this account nerdy/cosplay focused, but if you happen to be interested in my travels in New Zealand I do post a bit more here: @juliaamywhite

Enjoy this collection of some of my favourite hobbit holes (because there really were so many to choose from). Featuring some extra special one's belonging to a Mr. Bilbo Baggins and a Samwise Gamgee

"It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no telling where you might be swept off to.”

Today was honestly such a dream. I tend to travel by going with the flow and asking for recommendations, but Hobbiton was my one must-do activity in New Zealand. I've been such a fan of these stories since I was a kid. I grew up watching the LOTR films and The Hobbit book even inspired my favourite tattoo!

When I first arrived in the town for the tour it was seriously pouring with rain. It was a little disappointing, but it was still going to be a great day! Well, I had to wait about an hour for my tour time and just as we hopped off the bus at Hobbiton it stopped raining! It stayed clear and warm till exactly 90 minutes later when we finished the tour and entered the gift shop - then started pouring again.  It was some Gandalf level magic to have that perfect timing! The only disappointing thing was not being able to fit a hobbit cosplay in my backpack coming here!
.

Will post a few more photos from Hobbiton over the next few days as I reminisce over the experience!

Just a girl and her droid..

Though I'm having am excellent time in A Galaxy Far, Far Away (aka New Zealand), I am missing being able to create things, so throwing it back to this fun photoshoot from last year.

And I am about to move to Twizel, NZ where they filmed a bunch of Lord of the Rings, so maybe I can challenge myself to create something without my usual stores and tools and on a low budget. Could be a fun challenge + a LOTR photoshoot has to happen at some point while I'm out here!

Jumping on the #littlemermaid anniversary bandwagon (even though it's the next day in New Zealand 😆).
With all the Ariel's out and about, Ursula was bound to make an apparence!
Thanks to #thelittlemermaid for giving me a plus-size, business-savy, aquatic queen to look up too!

'I'm Going On Adventure!'
.
A pretty big adventure actually! Currently on route to Honolulu, which is my first stop on my journey to New Zealand to start my working holiday. No idea when I'll be back in Toronto, but that's the fun part, right? You can follow my journey on my normal account: @juliaamywhite

Thanks to my nerd friends old and new for being inspiring, motivating and downright awesome. 
Not sure how much cosplay I'll be able to do while on the road, but I'll try and keep this page updated with some older work over the next few months. And of course I will be back! Once a cosplayer, always a cosplayer!

My costume might be lacking today, but this wiener makes up for the both of us

Got any couple costume ideas for us for next year?

I loved wearing this for Snailoween last night! Any costume that can incorporate lights and glitter is my favourite (I just want to shine 😉)

Well this is the editing I decided to do last night at 2am...maybe not the smartest decision. Pretty happy with how it turned out, though I know it would have been a lot cleaner had it been created at normal working hour!
