Day three of BroadwayCon 2018 will forever go down in history as the Jellicle day. (At least for me and my friends.) It was the day us Cats cosplayers decided to do a meetup which turned into the BroadwayCon social media team filming a pretty long Hyperlapse of us 'catting about' for their Instagram. I honestly don't remember much of what else I did that day, so enjoy this photo dump from Sunday, January 28th, 2018.

This was a cool moment. This is us with the Broadway Experience director, Ben Hartley and assistant director, Mami Tomotani. Ben was in the original West End production of Cats and Mami was in the original Japan production. IMG_1942 IMG_1950 IMG_1953 IMG_1954 IMG_1977 IMG_1979_1 IMG_1984_1

BroadwayCon was, yet again, an amazing experience. It's the con I dreamed of when I was a teen and I still am stunned it's actually real. Thank you to Anthony Rapp and everyone else who made it possible. IMG_2001

Till next time. (Whenever that is, it might not be for a while...) IMG_2004

Sisterhood 3.0

So Sisterhood 3.0 is an idea built out of the community on YouTuber, Liz's Discord server. It's a collab channel made to feel like the older days of YouTube and John and Hank's, Brotherhood 2.0.

I've volunteered to be a 'casual' member, which is really a low-pressure, low-commitment, way of being apart of a collab channel again. (One of my favorite YouTube past times, as you may or may not know.) 

The way the schedule is set up it'll be a slow-moving channel, each member posting only once a month. There are about 8 members, most of whom I don't already know.

Please enjoy my introduction video, it serves as a bit of a life update for me as well. If you end up subscribing, comment and let 'em know I sent you!

VidCon Small YouTuber Tag 2018 + Cats Makeup

Doing Cats Makeup and the VidCon Small YouTuber Tag (and streaming to Twitch) was a lot.

BroadwayCon 2018 - Day 2

(If you repost my photos please credit me and link this blog, thank you!)
Day two of BroadwayCon 2018 was a big day. It was the day of the cosplay panel, the mainstage cosplay fashion show, and the day Julianne was attending with me!

She started the day by bringing coffee and croissant to my hotel room. (Well, she actually gave her croissant to a homeless man, so I gave her half of mine.) She was dressed as Veronica Sawyer (my old costume from the first BroadwayCon) and I was Jemima...with trimmed ears. We took the necessary cosplay mirror selfies before walking over to the convention center.

I had to show her the Phantom booth, first thing.

Next was the Lin-Manuel Miranda cardboard cut-outs...Julianne interviewed one for her article. (😂)

The 'Curtians Up On Cosplay' panel was so wonderful this year! I was so honored to be apart of this for the second year in a row. Be sure to check out the panel video here! IMG_1880 IMG_1882

Our Jellicle squad made it into the top 10 finalists of the cosplay fashion show! Wow wow wow! IMG_1887 IMG_1891 IMG_1902

I hung out with Chris on Saturday as well! I shot some cosplay video of him and Luis, I'll let you know once he posts it! IMG_1914 IMG_1908 IMG_1910

I'll leave you with this. Me: “You might not recognize me in this costume.” Tyler: “Oh, I recognize those eyes.” Me: *Is dead and has taken the stairs to the Heavyside Layer*

I'm 32 today!

Today is my birthday so I've decided to make a pointless post full of gifs for the simple reason that it makes me smile. GIF TIME!

Photowall Canvas Print Review

Disclosure: I received two canvas prints from Photowall in order to share my opinion about their products, but this isn’t a sponsored post. Also, there's a discount at the end of this post for you!

For this review, I chose a photo from my engagement shoot and one from my wedding. (Both shot by Paige and Blake Photography!) They came out beautifully, the quality is great and I love how they look. I picked the smallest size possible for canvas prints, 40 cm x 60 cm, however, the prints are still a bit big for our small apartment. I think the engagement photo will make it on our wall somewhere...but I'm not sure about the wedding one since we take up most of the frame.

The prints came in two packages with easy to understand instructions. (There's a YouTube video of instructions as well that they'll link you to if you need it.) I don't often do product reviews on this blog but Photowall is a Swedish company, and if you know me you know I have a soft spot in my heart for Sweden.

I'll give you a tip for the set-up of the canvas prints: you might have to re-stick the last side of the canvas that you end up putting together with the metal parts. It's a tight squeeze to get it all to come together but I figured it out in the end.
I think they look really wonderful, I just need to decide where to put them. If you'd like to get a canvas print for yourself, Photowall is currently offering my readers a 20% discount code. Just enter JenniferHolmquistCampaign2018 at checkout. It's only available for 30 days!
