I'm going to lots of cons this spring! Every other weekend, in fact, starting last week with MTCC. Here's what it looks like:
- (March 18-20: MTCC)
- April 2: Kitchener Comic Con (I will be at the Cosplay for a Cure booth)
- April 16: Civil War Geekery Con in Niagara Falls Canada (I'm a featured cosplay guest!)
- April 30: Toronto Knitter's Frolic (OK, it's not a media con, but I will be there - without costume - at the Zig Zag Stitches booth)
- May 7: Free Comic Book Day (location ??)
- May 13-15: Ottawa Comic Con (masquerade staff)
- May 27-29: Anime North (masquerade staff)
- June 10-12: YetiCon
I'm making lots of things! On top of costumes for myself and collabs with friends, I'm pushing my boundaries with props, which includes having entered Worbla's TranspART contest. I really hope I manage to succeed at actually making something which isn't a disaster!
... That's probably enough of a brief catch-up for now! Moving right along....
Toronto Comicon a.k.a MTCC a.k.a MTAC!
I went in to Comicon this year with a plan: buy some makeup, buy a wand, cosplay with friends, and take selfies. I had even avoided scheduling any shoots ahead of time, because I just didn't feel like it. Anyways, neither of the makeup or wand vendors which I had hoped to shop at were at the show this year, which was disappointing. I didn't get my new costume done on time so I wasn't part of the group that i had wanted to join. And I kept forgetting my camera at home, so I only grabbed a few selfies with friends and cool people on Saturday.
BUT, I did get to hang out with friends for most of the weekend, saw lots of great costumes, and was kidnapped for mini shoots by Dream Land Photography, Santiago Ortega, and a huge group of Game of Thrones cosplayers. Stopped by the body-painting panel by Evie E and Shelle-Chii and picked up one new thing to try with my makeup in future. Oh, and I got lots and lots of street-passes ^_^
As usual, here's a little gallery of my selfie-con pics as well as some of my favorite shots which have popped up so far Additional photographers: OOC Photography, Tim Bermingham, Michelle Flannigan, Very Frank Pictures. And bonus content: I got the opening shot in Neffy A's video!
