The comic store is open again since the state lockdown ended but I still haven't been able to get there. Luckily, they also do delivery now! So I was surprised with issue one of the new Sabrina comic and I'm very happy.

I'm about to go record a podcast episode so will read it after. I'll talk about Sabrina (tv show) then read about Sabrina! What a good day.

Maybe I'll even watch an episode of the sitcom later and get *all* the Sabrinas!

Animal Crossing 

It's past my bedtime but obviously this diner in my ACNH basement was too important.

It took me forever to find something I like enough for the floor. It's a weird, coffee and cake only diner. Like in Umbrella Academy but cakes instead of donuts!

And some couches on the other half that I tried to make look like the ones in Friends but I haven't seen it in a long time and don't know if I'm even close.

Made myself a witchy robe on Animal Crossing and then uploaded a bunch of palette-swapped versions.

Also made a really cute ritual space but those aren't my designs on the ground.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (comic), very mild spoilers, demonology? 

Tiny child Edward trying to summon Satan is so bizarrely adorable.

Of Two Minds by Carol Matas and Perry Nodelman

The Unicorn Club

I didn't do a lot of re-reads of novels but The Thief was read enough times that it's falling apart and has no cover.

I read a *lot* of other club-based series and it definitely affected the way I expect friendships to work.

Why doesn't everyone want to be in a family-like club and spend all our time together? XD

Jughead: The Hunger # 12

Jelly Bean is having a slumber party and wow look at the scary show they're watching. πŸ˜† πŸ™Œ πŸ’œ

Love it.

My Jughead costume! Featuring a hat I made myself out of felt, sewing for the first time in years. And cool pins for my vest.

Clearly (to me at least) *mostly* comics-Jughead, but the Serpents pin kinda makes it Riverdale-ish.

Best comments I got on it:
"Who are you supposed to be?" x3

"You should have gotten the beanie like he has in the show."

"So what are you? Just, like, punk rock?" (omg seriously πŸ™ πŸ’œ πŸ˜†)

"Nice Jughead cosplay. Ooh, asexual pin! Me too!"

My next favorite is probably Squirrel Girl's, though it barely qualifies. Also I'm not sure which one should count as the costume. Because, like, she lives her daily life in a costume (with her tail hidden away under her clothes) but then is her actual natural self when superheroing *but* adds a squirrel ear headband. She's literally always in costume! Very minimal not-at-all-a-disguise costumes, but still!

I recently picked up the Marvel Rising doll of her and mixed the two.

Juuuust about finished with my Halloween costume. Gonna be Jughead from the comics reboot. With some Riverdale influences (a Serpents pin πŸ˜†).

Pretty happy with how they turned out, given I have very little experience or skill for crafts.

Last step is to find a beanie or similar I can wear under the crown. Making a hat out of felt didn't work out so well for me.

Quentin Quire is such a treasure.

Also I 100% believe that even though these *look* like he could easily make them himself with a sharpie, he instead paid a big fancy designer way too much money to do it for him.

I love him so much.

My parents came to visit me today and wanted to go to the zoo. We saw a mastodon and a hippo.

I think someone who works at this zoo is one of us. πŸ˜†


(Img desc: comic on hoopla. Summary: "After being bitten by a strange girl, Renee has been changing. So she summons the Moonlighters to solve her werewolf problem. But she finds out 1) they help monsters, not gone then and 2) The Moonlighters are a team of werewolves themselves!")

Must read. Must read now.

14 - The last book(s) you loaned out

Awhile back one of my friends mentioned she was interested in comics but didn't know where to start. So I said I could lend her some, went a little overboard, and took a pic because I knew I'd forget which ones I loaned her.

So, this is my comics starter set, basically.

Minus the Batman one, which is actually my partner's and only there because she'd already read vol 1 and liked it. *shrug* No accounting for taste.

One of the books I picked up was "Why I Left, Why I stayed: Conversations on Christianity Between an Evangelical Father and His Humanist Son."

The chapter titles are fantastic. XD I haven't even started the book yet really and so far it's like 90% them snarking at each other. (In a good-natured way, I'm sure.)

1 - Your first favorite book

So, the first book I really remember loving a lot...I don't actually know the name of. My sister threw it out the window of a car when we were fighting and I've never been able to find it again.

The next would be "Sweet Valley Kids #35 - Left Back." I still have this book, and it started off a love of Sweet Valley that lasted a loooooong time. TBH I still re-read them sometimes, including this one. It holds up.
