We brought Porkchop to walk alongside some beautiful pups and doggos in the Loop. He met some good boys from One Tail at a Time, as well as some equally good boys who brought their humans.
Porkchop himself invited his entourage of 7 (including me, his personal photographer and momager) and we all took turns steering him away from chicken wings and mud puddles.
The Chicago Athletic Association reserved the bocce court for Yappy Hour so the dogs (and humans) could socialize after.
Porkchop frolicked and made friends with the other pawpies until it was time to go home. We humans enjoyed drinks and snacks ($10 beer, shot and burger combo!).
A thank you to the Chicago Athletic Association for hosting, and to One Tail at a time and Percent Pledge for a dog-gone good time!

“A buddy of mine saw Kylo Ren take his shirt off in the shower. And he said that Kylo Ren had an eight pack. That Kylo Ren was shredded.”
Here are some collectors’-baseball-card-type photos of my costume last year, Batgirl of Burnside.
(Please ignore the wrinkles in my cape. It was folded and, as it is made of pleather/vinyl, can’t be ironed easily.)
I am on no level of making an entire a jacket but I am adept at hammering snaps, making capes (♥), and sewing unlined belt pouches 🙂
The highlight of creating this costume was the Batgirl cowl. Most of my time was spent drafting a pattern onto a plaster cast of my head (thanks Matthew and Christian for plastering up my face and blowdrying me for hours! ♥), using almost an entire roll of painter’s tape and craft paper, and then GESSO and SANDING.
SO MUCH GESSO AND SANDING!
Here are a few BTS photos of the process, if you were interested. The cowl is made of Worbla with layers upon layers of gesso, and finally a coat of black acrylic paint.
As I said, I am very excited for this year’s costume! So where will the Force guide me?
