This is what I got instead of the toucan jumpsuit. Good choice?

This movie is perfect.
Just a reminder that I am still seeking contributions for a set of DIY fanzines, which will make their debut at DC Zinefest on July 20. If you’re interested in making something for a zine, please get it to me by June 30.
There are six zines planned— four single-fandom, and two multifandom. For the single-fandom zines, I’m looking for short meta and fic (under 1000 words), fanart, comics, lists, craft instructions, recipes, and anything else that strikes your fancy. For the multifandom zines, I’m looking for personal essays of any length (though shorter is better), broader analysis, and comics.
Here’s what we’re making:
“Beyond the Barricade,” Les Miserables
“The Turtle Moves,” Discworld
“Greetings From Coeur d’Coeurs,” Pushing Daises
“Encyclopedia Gallifrey,” Doctor Who
“Storming the Clubhouse,” a zine about being treated as an outsider by your fandom
“How I Found Fandom,” a zine that is fairly self-explanatory
Zines will be b&w and made by me. Page size is 8.5”hx5.5”w. Zines will be available by mail after Zinefest is over. I will be charging for zines, but only enough to cover production costs; any extra will be used to make more zines or donated to the Zinefest.
If you are interested in making something for a zine, please get in touch via tumblr or via email at hollimichele at gmail dot com. I’m looking forward to seeing what you make!
So they were filming Winter Soldier in Dupont Circle last night, and while that turned out to be a disappointment (just the stunt double), it was SO WORTH IT because a guy there had somehow acquired 10 pages of shooting script and let me read them. I will not be sharing any of the actual spoilers contained therein, but I WILL reveal that the following is now canon:
Steve Rogers keeps a notepad in his pocket with a list of pop culture things he needs to catch up on, and it currently reads:
Also, he is pretty excited about the polio vaccine.
It’s a #captainamerica party in Dupont tonight.
Rumor has it they’re going to be at the Lincoln Memorial tomorrow. I plan to get into DC as early as humanly possible. Who else is in?
I am queen of all I survey. (Except the wedding dresses in the corner.)
