Final Pepakura Post

Hello all,

The House Of Night - Not really a review but what I think of it....

Hello All,

I hope you are all very well this fine Sunday.

So yesterday I finished Redeemed the last book in the House Of Night.

I have been reading these books since about 2010 is started reading them a little late as the first book came out in 2007.

The series is made up of 12 books and 4 novellas.

The books are:

Dragon's Oath
Lenobia's Vow
Nerefet's Curse
Kalona's Fall

The books ar…

In 2012 the first Destination Star Trek beat the world record of most people dress in Star Trek uniforms. I was not part of this unfortunately but I tried this time with an original series red dress which I love. We didn't beat it but I got a selfie a borg so it turned out great for me. After this we entered the exhibition hall. This year I found the stalls a bit sparse there wasn't as many in 2012 yes it gave you more room to move but there wasn't has much selection. We walked around some of the stalls and decided to get our autograph tokens.We chose Jeri Ryan (my girl crush), Karl Urban (my guy crush), Robert Picardo and Tim Russ. As Robert Picardo was close we went straight to him. He was polite an…
