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…
It’s that time of year again!! But this year’s DragonCon is going to be a bit different than usual for me. For the past few years, I’ve been a part of the Comics and Popular Arts Conference (CPAC, hopefully they’ll have the program up soon!) that is held as a part of the con. This… Read More DragonCon 2018: Pre-Con prep time!
When I first forayed into the world of cosplay, I was a college student without access to fabric and sewing machines let alone any knowledge as to what to do with them. I was going down to Goodwill and seeing what I could find while styling my hair to match as close as possible. I… Read More Stepping Up My Game
Today, once I left the office, my Spring Break officially started. I’ve been avoiding doing any school-related work. The closest I have gotten to school work is looking through the readings I need to do before class resumes after break. It’s been so nice. One of the things I’ve been doing instead is working on… Read More Refresh
View this post on Instagram This is what happens when you don't try on your costume before the con: a pile of clothing because one important piece doesn't fit right. A post shared by Pirogoeth (@pirogoeth05) on Sep 1, 2017 at 6:05am PDT I posted this earlier today after finding my skirt doesn’t fit the… Read More Costume Fail
With about a week to go before I need to have everything done and at least ready to be packed and loaded into the rental car, I still have to finish two of my three costumes. The Bitch Planet overalls just need the NC painted onto them. But I keep freaking myself out over making the… Read More Stress Mode
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
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… Read More Post-Con Inspiration
