Tifa Lockhart Cosplay

Last weekend I attended MileHiCon here in Denver. It was my first fan-focused con, though it also caters to writers. I went to amazing panels, bought fun jewelry, and generally had a blast. I also cosplayed for the first time! I’ve wanted to for a while, and I’m so glad I finally did. I chose […]

My Galaxy Hair

I forgot to post about my new hairdo. I’ve been wanting to dye my whole head for a loooong time, but didn’t want to worry about the upkeep. But then I learned about shadow roots, which will allow me to go a little longer between touch ups. Ta-dah! I can go whole hog. At first […]

Home.

I recently spent three weeks visiting my parents in my hometown of Charleston, SC. The first week I was home, I felt homesick for Denver. Everywhere I went, I faced layers of memories. This is the place of my past, I thought. This was the home of Kristina Cooper, not Kristina Atkins. I’ve grown so much since I […]
