As always, that was fun! Sadly, I didn’t wear all the costumes I took with me. Friday was a success with Wafuku Ten. Having the new brush set from Morphe – which it seems I need to make a post about – and their brush cleaner really helped me with my make-up. I also planned… Read More Marcon 53: Post-Con
I’m lounging on one of my beds in my room, with the other taken up by the costumes, relaxing and getting organized for the weekend. For Marcon 53! I hadn’t remembered I included tonight in my reservation. At first I thought I’d want an extra day off, but the I remembered the main reason: I… Read More Marcon 53: Here We Go!
This is very tentative, but I’m really hoping that it will become the list of costumes I’m going to be taking to DragonCon this year. First Doctor Bathing Beauty Bitch Planet inmate The Doctor (Kimono) Star Trek Fangirl 21st Century Doctor Who Fangirl The First Doctor Bathing Beauty is the only one actually done at this… Read More DragonCon 2017 Plans
I got home earlier from Marcon 52. I’m tired. I’m ready for a nap. I am so happy! It was so much fun seeing friends, going to panels, geeking out, and wearing costumes! I deviated slightly from my original plans. I realized I don’t have appropriate black pants that fit for “Barcelona” Ten. So I… Read More Marcon 52 Success!
I am really looking forward to this week being over. Not because of class. Not because of grading. Not because of moving back home. Because I can spend the week getting ready for Marcon! Maybe it’s because last year I gave my students their final on Thursday and Marcon started on Friday. Maybe it’s because… Read More Almost done!
I just realized I never posted about Marcon last year. So to make up for it, here are my plans for this year! Friday: Tenth Doctor (Barcelona). I’m moderating the Doctor Who panel that day, so of course I have to be the Doctor. I feel like it’s “Barcelona”s turn to come out and play, again.… Read More Marcon 52 plans!!
This year is not going to be costume-heavy. I did want to have my Star Trek Fangirl ready, but life got in the way. I’m hoping that next year I can go fangirl crazy! Anyway, this year I will be taking two costumes with me: Science Officer and Osgood. Science Officer is from Season 3 of the… Read More DragonCon 2016 Costumes
I am sad to admit that I will not be able to finish my Star Trek Fangirl outfit for DragonCon this year. The class I am teaching, my thesis, and other professional commitments are requiring my attention more. I am going to have it done for next year. I am hoping to have it done for… Read More Priorities
As usual, I come away from a convention with a new way of looking at my costumes. It really isn’t a bad thing, though. It inspires me to keep working on the ideas I have, gives me fresh ideas for how to approach problems, and opens my mind to new possibilities. I was on a… Read More Post-Marcon Inspiration
Another DragonCon down. Another amazing time. Another shift in my personal attitude toward costuming. Trying to get into costume and looking good left me frustrated often this year. Sharing a room with five other people, two of which had costumes of their own, after attending conventions without any other costumers in the room was interesting.… Read More Another Lesson Learned
