For the books I got at McKays, here they are:
|Ruined by Paula Morris|
|Marked (House of Night Bk. 1) by P.C. Cast + Kristin Cast|
And I even creeped out of my comfort zone to try Marvel Adventures: The Avengers: Bizarre Adventures: Vol. 3
I was very amused by Spider-Man's ("That's Spider-Man, with a hyphen" ~ Spider-Man) and Iron Man's senses of humor. It was a very, very quick read, but also very fun. But comic books just aren't my thing, I guess.
At Michael's, I got my mom's birthday present, and a pendant for the steampunk photoshoot my sister has been intent on doing. I think we've got our outfits mainly sorted out-- the buying part has yet to be done-- but we've got the colors and main ideas. Mine is going to be a dress of some sort, and hers is going to be pants and a corset. (I also really, really want a top hat.)
Anyways, Michael's has loads of adorable things for steampunk. She freaked. I freaked. We both freaked. And we bought a few things to decorate necklaces, chokers, etc.
Here's the one I got (yes, yes, I know. only one?! alas, I am broke.) I got. Which I am completely in love with.
I have yet to figure out how it'll be used, but probably for a choker. It just seems like it'd suit it. My sis also got brown and black ribbon-- very steampunk-ish.
I can't stop obsessing over the tiny gears and mechanical pieces Michael's had. It was beyond perfect. All the metal things! I should probably stop looking at steampunk things on Pinterest, or else I'll get as obsessed as my sister. It's just that steampunk is the perfect mix of kick-butt and feminine. Of lace and leather. I mean LOOK.
Anyways, I've gotta run, so, later,
