Momocon 2017

I had a blast at Momocon this year! It was my 4 year old’s first convention, and we cosplayed together. I was a Ghostbuster, and she was Janine. I think we will make Momocon a tradition. Here are a few pics – you can see more on my facebook page!

Last Minute Superhero!

I was able to pull together a quick costume with fun props and makeup in the few hours before the Markster Con Superhero Pub Crawl where I was a registration volunteer. I enjoyed wearing this so much I might even bring it to Momocon!

Treklanta

I cannot believe that I forgot to share this with you guys! Last month I was a guest artist at Treklanta. I was stationed in the main ballroom and did live painting of the panels and the events. Special thanks to Mel’S. Creations for having me. See more pictures in my facebook abum here.

FanFest 2017

I had a blast at FanFest last weekend with my makerspace ColumbusMakesIT! While they held down the fort in the teen area with cool robots and legobot battles, I hosted a few panels on cosplay and participated in the celebrity costume challenge. Thank you for having us, Columbus Public Library!

K9 Poodle Skirt

Since I am totally obsessed with Doctor Who, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to make this skirt happen. A group of us were planning on going to see Grease at the Springer Opera House  and we turned it into a costumed event. I painted K9 on my skirt. Get it?! Ahhh I can’t stop laughing at this!

Pop Tab Chainmail

Making this for RenFest! Going on April 22nd, who else will be there? Hopefully I finish in time… this is slooooowwww work!

I FINISHED BEDAZZLING THE HAT

you guys this took a zillion (or like 10) hours of painstaking one at a time gluing. SO SPARKLY!

Also – HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

Dragon Con is Coming!

Here is my lineup, I thought it would be fun to do a “before and after, so I will take some pictures and remake this next week!

I am not 100% sure on days/times yet, but tentatively I am looking at Steampunk Bell Thursday day and changing into my Marriott Picasso dress for Revenge of the Carpet and Nerdy New Year Thursday night. Friday I will be Queen of Hearts all day, and maybe change to Princess Vader that night if I need a corset break. Saturday morning I will be back in the Marriot Picasso dress for the parade and photo shoot, and then spend the evening in the Ecto-1. Sunday I will be in the Memorial TARDIS. I will probably not do any costumes on Monday, but if I do it will be something super comfy. Maybe I will bring Red from OUAT as a back up.

I am almost packed, I just need to sew a clasp onto the TARDIS gown, finish installing the shelf on my Ecto-1 for the music, and make a repair to Belle’s sleeve. I wanted to do a makeup costest for the Queen, but maybe I will just wing it.

I can’t wait to see all of the amazing costumes and events and surprises Dragon Con has in store for 2016!

 

 

 

Ghostbuster’s Ecto-1 Build

There was a special party here in Atlanta for the Ghostbusters before the new movie came out (BTW don’t believe the haters, that movie was awesomely hilarious!) and so, of course, even though Dragon Con was looming, I decided to build another costume. And escalate it. Because why not?

What initially was going to be a quick and funny cardboard build (like my DeLorean last October) became a really awesome wooden car with working lights! Okay, okay. They were glow sticks. But still! It lit up!

But wait, there’s more! I actually won Best 80’s Costume in the contest!

Now back to my regularly scheduled Dragon Con panic. I will definitely be bringing the Ecto-1 out for a spin there as well.
