Marcon 2014

That was a wonderful convention. I’ve already gushed about it over on Polymind, but I wanted to talk costumes a bit more. Arthur was the most recognized costume of the weekend. Come to think about it, I may make Arthur a staple of Marcon. I had my picture taken three times, which was great. I…

Slight change in plans

So, I got to thinking. I’ve got a lot of work to do to get Arthur’s wig in shape. Then a thought popped up: why not go genderbend instead? So I tried on the pyjamas and liked it. Then I tied my hair back and knew it would be perfect! So it looks like Arthur’s…
