Friday evening I spent sewing the cosplay. I took about 6 hours or so, so nothing to complain about there. I was thrilled when I found out that my Sonia Rykiel shoes could be used for Sharon Spitz aka Braceface some weeks ago. But these boot covers were my first so that was kind of challenging - still fun though.
I had a lot of fun at the con. A lot of my friends were there and they made it all so much greater. We were the only one in costumes so we were very popular, haha. People wanting to have pictures taken etc. A lot more of those than at an anime conventions, because at those there are cosplayers all around.
I really love Komiks.dk because it is really hardcore. I listened to about 12 different lectures with comic experts/artists. When I'm at Komiks I always feel like I'm becoming so much smarter. I love how the atmosphere is so serious.
I did three small photoshoots with Ida and Mona, Sørine and Rikke as Phenix, Rouge, Tinkerbell and Harley Quinn. That - photoshooting - I haven't really done before, so that was really exciting. Sørine thinks I rock at taking pictures, but I disagree haha.
Ariellah and I.
I love turning up at the cons "early" in the morning all dressed up in a costume and then watching as the make-up fades away and the wig starts to toussle. People always end up taking off their wigs, myself included.
