I am so excited for next year! By the end of DragonCon, we had all bought our memberships for next year. Well, those of us who aren’t eternal members did. One of these days… And, more importantly, we got our hotel reservation in for next year! There was even coordination on costumes (a 90’s theme)!… Read More Ready for next year!
Saying that DragonCon 2019 was fun would be an understatement. Partially due to the huge success of both Pirogoeth and Star Trek Fangirl’s debuts. I was a Fangirl on Saturday, with the hopes that I would make it to George Takei’s table and get his autograph. The four of us all got in costume and… Read More Best DragonCon ever!
At 2:58 in the above video, I feel like that will be me next Friday. This past year has been devoid of cosplaying. I was so stressed out by school at last year’s DragonCon that I didn’t feel like taking any costumes. Because of budgetary issues, I didn’t even go to Marcon this year. Now,… Read More For the first time in forever…
When I created my very first Dungeons & Dragons character for a 3.5 edition campaign, I based her off of Pirogoeth from MegaTokyo. Very quickly she became her own character. She started out with a couple levels of Fighter before moving on to Wizard – she needed skills for fights that didn’t rely on magic.… Read More Pirogoeth (Wizard)
When I started packing for DragonCon last week, I discovered a problem. I went to grab my Starfleet uniform boots and found I have two pair. The last time I wore my uniform, the boots I had killed my feet. Not quite to the point of blisters, but I couldn’t wear them long, even when… Read More Testing. Testing.
More than three years after having the idea… More than three years after starting to construct it… More than two years after failing and having to reconsider a big part of it… The Star Trek Fangirl is done! Here’s the rundown. I’ll go through chronologically in-universe. For Enterprise, I decided to make a pouch to… Read More “Star Trek” Fangirl
While I have started working on the Robe of the Archmagi for Pirogoeth, I realized that I’m not going to have it in a place where I’m going to enjoy wearing it around DragonCon in time. When I was falling asleep a few nights ago, it came to me: make a cloak. Before she got… Read More Pirogoeth’s Cloak
I was updating my spreadsheet regarding the progress I’ve been making on the Fangirls, when I decided to take another look at a costume I’ve had planned, and have most of what I need for, but just haven’t started yet. I realized how much I do have, and got to work. Pirogoeth is my first… Read More Adding to the pile
Yesterday I was inspired and got a lot of little things done. I went to Jo-Ann’s and picked up some materials to get the Star Trek Fangirl’s bustle done and some E6000. When I got home, I moved one empty box to the trash and now have access to the patio. That really put a… Read More Construction work!
In today’s guest announcements, DragonCon revealed that David Tennant is going to be at DragonCon!!!! Ten is my Doctor, in case that isn’t obvious by now… That announcement changed my plans completely. But it also solidified them. I have to bring my Wafuku Ten again now. I am not missing out on this opportunity to… Read More DragonCon 2019 Plans
