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!
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
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 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!!
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
After the “Choosing Fabrics” panel, I had “Props, Props, and More Props”. This time it was guys of Fyberdyne Laboratories who were the panelists. These guys are amazing. They each have their strength and they work together to make amazing costumes and props. They brought a bunch of the props they’ve made with them and… Read More Marcon 50: The Props
Like I mentioned before, I learned a lot at Marcon this year. My first panel on Friday was “Choosing Fabrics”. I figured between my costuming and working at Jo-Ann’s, I should go. I am so glad I did. I knew two of the three panelists, one through Prydon Academy and the other lives here in… Read More Marcon 50: The Fabric
Marcon 50 was amazing. And some of the best moments of the weekend were due to my costume choices. On Friday I was Dr. Abbey. I had a Literary Costuming panel followed by the Alternative Zombies panel. Dr. Abbey was the obvious choice. When I walked in to the room before the Literary Costuming panel,… Read More Marcon 50: The Costumes
And it was a blast! I’ll go into more detail later, but it was one of the best convention experiences ever!
