DragonCon 2017 Plans

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.

Post-Con Inspiration

Every time I go to a convention, I come back inspired to get working on some costume. Sometimes it’s a completely new costume. Sometimes it’s costumes I’m already working on. This year, for once, it’s the latter. This DragonCon I was only in costume for about half a day. I decided not to do the…
