Behind the Scenes

Wrap-Up: June 2016

We’re halfway through 2016 already, and to be honest I don’t mind. The past couple of months have been both great and terrible – with all the celebrity deaths and shootings and stuff – that I really hope the upcoming six months will be so much better. Anyway, let’s get on with this month’s wrap-up!

Books I Bought/Received:



I honestly thought I had bought so many books this month, but actually, it’s not too bad. Five of these, and the comics, were bought, and the rest I all got for free, and I got a couple of audiobooks as well!

Digital Books I Received:

I also received a couple of audiobooks, like I said, through the Audiofile Sync program!

I’m ashamed to say I haven’t listened to any of these yet, partly because I haven’t had that much mail to deliver the past couple of weeks and I’d rather listen to music instead.

Other Purchases:



  • A dress and a strapless top (both gifts from my mum); shirt for Rey, ‘Your Life is a Joke’ shirt, Iron man shirt; leather-look jeans for Quicksilver, black skirt with pockets; silver shoes for Quicksilver, flannel shirt, Star Wars pyjama bottoms.
  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron DVD
  • X-Men 3: The Last Stand DVD
  • Jurassic World DVD
  • Captain America coasters
  • Civil War pins
  • Goggles (Quicksilver cosplay) (just noticed it’s in both pictures, oops)
Read, seen, started in June:



Next Month:

In July, I am hoping to get started on my Rey cosplay for Amsterdam Comic-Con. I got a good shirt for her now, and I only need to get the right fabric for the sash and the pants. Other than that I am planning on working more, I’ve said I’d take over someone else’s mail as well for a couple of weeks, which means more money for London next year!
