Another question from AKF
It depends what you mean by role play. As in, I’ve never done any RPGs before (though I’ve been meaning to, especially with the new Firefly one coming out). I’ve sometime texted friends or chatted with them over facebook, very casually, as character, but I’ve never done really in depth character stuff.
I actually sometimes have trouble channeling Kaylee’s energy, especially at conventions. While it’s super easy to smile all the time, I don’t always know what to say, and it’s actually something I am trying to actively work on.

Figured I’d answer a bunch of these in my recent push to a) be more active blogging and b) clear out my ask boxes to make room for new stuff.
ANYWAYS THANK YOU GUYS. It really really means so much from everyone when they say stuff like this :)

Dallas Fan Expo

askkayleefrye:

SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT I WILL BE AT FANEXPO DALLAS THIS MAY!!!!! Many many thanks to geeklurv for helping me get there! 

In case anyone was was wondering, why, Maya, why are you so excited? Well that’s because FanExpo has managed to wrangle up THE ENTIRE Firefly crew for the convention. How could I not go?

That being said, I may be putting together an IndieGogo later this week to help pay for some of the trip. However, I will also be releasing some prints later this month that you can order to also help out.

Loads of exciting stuff, and I love sharing it with you all!

Anonymous ASKED
do you ever just sort of walk around in your place of residence in your cosplay outfit without the intention of taking pictures or going out?

(This was originally a question I got to Ask Kaylee Frye, but as it ain’t a question for Kaylee, I thought I’d answer it here)

I used to do this a lot more, with my old coveralls since they are ridiculously comfortable and have a ton of pockets. I also used to ALWAYS wear them whenever I had to travel a bunch, like on a bus or flying on a plane, because pockets sure are useful.

Now, I don’t as much because I don’t want any damage to come to the new ones. But I do definitely wear them around if even after I’ve worn them at a con or to make gifs, since they are still really, really comfortable.

(Question originally from AKF)
This is so tough to answer! I want to say probably Morena, since I got to meet her for a bit longer than the others (though both Adam and Alan pointed out my likeness to Jewel which still gives me feathery feelings in my tummy region). Her autograph line at Chicago Comic Con was really small, meaning my friend and I got to give her the flower crowns we made (and she and Alan actually wore and tweeted them which was so so cool). 
I wish I could meet the cast more in depth, but photo-ops don’t really work that way, sadly. Maybe someday!
I’m really trying hard to go to Dallas Fan Expo, because almost the WHOLE cast is supposed to be there, so I’m actually working with a couple photographers to sell prints in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if anyone wanted to chip in, I’ve got donate buttons on both this page as well as Ask Kaylee Frye :)

Firefly: A Celebration comes with interviews with Joss Whedon and the cast, full scripts of some of the episodes, production and design notes - what it took to make the show happen, as well as info on the would-have been second season.

I’m giving this away because I never get the chance to sit down and enjoy it. So, I want someone else to have it. I’ll take care of the shipping - even out of the USA.  The book includes nine 7” x 9 1/2” posters of the cast, as well as a replica of one of the banknotes.

All you have to do is reblog this post. You don’t have to follow me, and yes, likes do count. I’ll put everyone’s names into a random generator, so multiple reblogs/likes helps.

Unless there aren’t that many notes, the give-away will end MARCH 23RD at 4:15PM (EDT)

****Edit***

So, I’m taking off the time for the end of the give-away. But any reblog/like after today won’t be counted. Thanks everyone who’s shown interest in the give-away. (:

Edit - March 24th, 2014

The winner of the give-away is vamphacker696696! Thanks everyone who reblogged and liked this post! I’m happy it’s going somewhere it can be put to use. (: (: (: (: (: (:

****EDIT 14APRIL2014****

There’s a re-do on this contest because the winner never got back with me about shipping information. The same rules still apply. I’ll be checking this Friday (April 18th, 2014 | 10:53pm EDT) on both posts for a new winner. (: Thanks, y’all!
