Scares That Care 2017

Hello, my freaky darlings! Lulu and I had a great time at the con today. We did our best to stay for a a good while and stroll around and talk to people. We got tons of compliments and photo requests for our Lydia Deetz costumes (if you put us on your Insta, please tag @breenicgarran and @iamlaurengoodnight), and picked up some truly awesome swag in the vendors room.

Annnnd then the fire alarm went off and we decided that was as good a signal as any to call it a day. (Read: We were already sweating to death in our costumes and were not prepared to wait an hour or more for the fire marshall to clear things up, especially if there was an honest-to-goodness fire somewhere in the hotel.)

So we came home to recuperate, and we’ll be spending the evening watching old Beetlejuice cartoons and picking the wig glue out of our….everywhere.

Thank You, Celtic Myth & Moonlight!

Celtic Myth & Moonlight has purchased my books for inclusion in their West Reading, PA store!

From the website:

Celtic Myth and Moonlight was established in 2003 to enlighten and inform those interested in the traditional wares and spirituality of the ancient Celts.  By spinning a web which links the past to the present, the Old Ways are interweaved into our daily lives.

Stepping through our doorway, one journeys through space and time into a different realm.  Willowy tree branches beckon you to enter a place of magic, where fairies frolic amidst colorful, swooping dragons.  Swords and daggers grace the walls, while brightly-colored witch balls catch your eye as you wander throughout the rooms.

Jewelry from the Celtic Isles grace the brightly lit cabinets, shimmering from the glistening light of candles made by local artisans.   Pewter goblets and chalices sit amidst clusters of quartz, amethyst, fluorite, and more. Celtic crosses of seeming antiquity draw one from room to room, as eyes wander to the many rare and special treasures abounding within.  Handmade woolen and silken cloaks drape gracefully over renaissance clothing which will warm and protect you on the darkest of nights.

Please help me say a big Thank You to Celtic Myth & Moonlight by giving them your business! 🙂
