{ Family } How To Be Really Fun Mum! #cosplay #supanova2015

Try Cosplay for a Day...

Over the weekend I unleashed my inner Fun Mum, let go of my serious side and really had FUN! We went to the Supanova Pop Culture Expo at the Melbourne Showgrounds and it was awesome!

Until 3 weeks ago, I hadn't even thought of going or let alone going in a Cosplay Costume! But, after some encouragement from Melbourne Transformers Optimus Prime, I decided to go and encourage my family to go as well! I chose a character based on what I liked the look of, the characters story and of course inspiration from other Cosplayers, in particular, Vera Chimera. My character was RIVEN from League of Legends Game. which was chosen after seeing Vera Chimera's photos and Cosplay Costume, it really is awesome (way better that what I made!)

Sometimes I forget To Be Me!...

One of the things I tend to forget is that I am still "Heather" even though I'm Mum, Wife, Friend, Business Chic and the rest!

The Heather I know is a bit of a Geek at heart, give me an iPad, game controller, computer or nature documentary and I'm at home :) Sometimes I forget to take off all those other HATS I wear that keep this Mothership going on autopilot. Motherhood and being a parent is a wonderful journey, please don't misunderstand me, but there is a part of me that my kids don't always see, the real, goofy me!

Do you find this yourself?

Your the taxi driver, the hairdresser, the financial controller, the carer, the suzie homemaker, gardener, handymum, the dog walker, the naughty minx in the bedroom and you end up wondering "what's left for just me?" Some find this thought selfish, I find it refreshing! I want to see and inspire mums to have that something that you enjoy. Let's face it, our fella's or partners don't have any guilt doing this, so why should we! It's about having something that connects you with the YOU that was before everyone and everything came along! Remembering your likes and 

So, now it's time to UNLEASH YOUR inner FUN MUM and I can show you the way!
