The best word to describe New York Comic Con is crowded. If there had been a fire we’d all have been trampled to death by the wave of humans. Serious kudos to anyone who cosplayed at the con- moving around in normal clothes was a nightmare, I’m sure it was only more difficult in costume. I only dressed up on Saturday (and almost didn’t even bother with that because of what a pain it was to move around the con) as Leia- which is pretty much just a frumpy frock. I can’t imagine how exhausted the people in full body paint or armor must’ve felt by the end of the day. Really, you had to plan your bathroom breaks to take into account that you’d be waiting in line for about half an hour before actually making it into the restroom. On the show floor you’d have to be holding on to the people you were with or someone would get swept away by the crowd- and cell service was non-existent once the convention was underway.
Man, I am just full of whining about this convention and I really don’t mean for it to come off as ‘Horrible Experience 2012′ because that’s not what it was at all. Sure, it was crowded- but there were some amazing guests. I think this may be the first time I’ve ever gone to a convention and actually wanted to see guests. I turned into a useless fangirly puddle over Fiona Staples and got my copy of Saga signed by her and Brian K. Vaughan which pretty much made all of my aggravation at the crowds worthwhile.
Finally, (and I feel kind of after school special for saying this, however true it may be) what really made the con was being able to hang out with people I don’t usually get to see and making new friends. ♥

I had a fantastic time at Free Comic Book Day a few weeks ago with Kelly (Dr. Natu) and Larissa (Enchantress)!

Potter Party Potter Party Potter Party – Yay!
We hung a bunch of fake candles from the ceiling to imitate the great hall at Hogwarts, made Butterbeer and Firewhiskey labels to cover our beer with (Magic Hat, appropriately), had faaaar too much wizard themed food, and were extremely nerdy with HP related games and trivia. Also, dry ice makes everything and anything loads more fun!
Thanks for coming, guys! :B

I should really just give in and make myself a pair of gloves so that the fingers fit properly. u_u

Otakon’s over (thank goodness x_X) and wasn’t nearly as spectacular as I had hoped it would be. Basically didn’t do much cosplaying at all. Now, back to reality (augh, that’s always such a drag).
I’m looking forward to starting work on new projects, and after the bleh feeling that was Otakon I’m probably going to start cutting down my cosplaying at conventions- it’s just a huge pain in the butt and I don’t enjoy doing it so much. :/

Anime Boston was exhausting but fun. I sewed my Neptune costume together the night before we left, so it’s got a bit of wonk to it- I’m glad that all of the dying was out of the way early or I probably would have lost it and passed out on my sewing machine.
There is a huge amount of work to do in preparation for this weekend’s photoshoot, I kind of want to stab myself in the eye or sleep for the rest of the week, but sadly I have actual (not happy fun cosplay related) work to do on top of fun work, so I should really get going. Fun work seems like it should be an
