Katsucon ~ The Almost Doctor

So whilst at the Doctor Who meet-up, I thought it’d be a little cute to find two Eleventh Doctors with different-coloured boots — a la the ganger storyline from ‘The Rebel Flesh’/’The Almost People.’ Primarily, I thought it’d be a bit of a cool thing to send to Matthew Graham, to show him the whole cosplay thing in action with something he’d written. Fortunately, I found two guys who, while not prepared at the moment, promised to have everything exactly right the next day. (Apparently this had been a plan of theirs at some point anyway.)

So thanks ever so much to Justin and Evan for being super good sports about this. They have many other fine costumes as well, some of which you can see linked in the Doctor Who meet-up album from the previous entry.

There are still more Katsucon photos to come, believe it or not, courtesy of Mr. Paul Karpey. Hang tight, because they will be coming … eventually!

Katsucon 2014 ~ Doctor Who Gathering

So I was whomping around in my Eighth Doctor costume on Friday and ran into a really kickin’ 10th and War Doctor.

Here's me with said War Doctor.

Here’s me with said War Doctor.

I was informed that there had been a Doctor Who meet-up that day, and that there would be another the following day. We (and an 11th Doctor) ended up doing a big ol’ shoot with Paul Karpey, which I will share with you when he starts putting out pics. I heard from another gentleman that he would have an Eighth Doctor on hand the next day … which meant that I could swap out for another costume without messing up the Doctor representation.

I went for one of my new ones: Gallifreyan Clara from ‘Name of the Doctor.’

What follows is a mix of photos taken by myself and one Sarah McElroy. Visit her Facebook album for the full set, as the only ones I’ve lifted from her are ones with me in them (and thus ones I couldn’t have taken).

Phew. And that’s only a handful of them. Visit that image gallery for tons and tons and tons more. Seriously. The only main series Doctor not represented was Six, and I only know two people who’ve ever willingly made that coat anyway.

Thanks to my fellow Friday night Doctors for cluing me in on this, and to everyone else who was super awesome about hanging out with me there. There are still more Who shenanigans to come, so hang in there.

And no, seriously, I promise. There will be ANIME costumes from this ANIME con before long. Probably.

Katsucon 2014 ~ All the Cosplays

Well, the downside of this year’s Katsu is I missed the window to apply for an Artist Alley table. The good news is, this meant I had time to roam in cosplay, get pictures of other people’s, and get pictures of mine! The mine ones will be forthcoming, but for now I have photos of several others I caught along the way.

You know the deal: if you see your picture, grab your picture. If you’d like a link back to a page of some sort under your picture, leave a comment and it shall be done. ♥

Now, onward!

There’s more to come — LOTS more to come. I did three photoshoots of my own, went to a giant Doctor Who gathering, and did a mini-shoot with two cool dudes that was … yeah, MORE Doctor Who stuff.

Stay tuned for all that, because more photos will be rolling in bit by bit.

MarsCon 2014 ~ No-Snow-Con

Usually MarsCon gets snowed in or iced over, but for some reason this year it decided to wait a couple weeks to pull that on us. So, while it was a bit on the chilly side, it was still possible to get around town and go outside and things.

As always, MarsCon is pretty laid-back, and I had a chance to snap a few photos of neat costumes while I was chilling.

Naturally, I was also there with Luna-C — and given the events of the last couple months, our show had a distinctly Whovian skew. Including a skit where the Ghosts of Doctors Past, Present, and Yet to Come had a little something to say about making kids cry on Christmas.

Was also thrilled to get a little hangout time with some of the Tangent Artists (and took them on their very first Cook-Out run), and had some quality Cards Against Humanity time with them and some other friends.

Sorry, I meant Cards Against HumaniTEA.

So yeah. If you found me at my table or after the show or elsewise, hello and nice to meet you! Up next, just a few random pictures of one of my newest costumes. Of which I’m rather proud. Next up, Katsucon!

 

Nekocon 2013 ~ Mikoto Utsugi

So if you’ve seen GaoGaiGar FINAL (and, I mean, who HASN’T …. erm), you know that there’s a brief scene where Mikoto is sort of Lotus Eater’d out and wearing this weird orange birthday cake dress while making a picnic and talking about how great it is to not fight. I don’t know what my deal what, but I decided to make it.

This is one of those costumes where you have to just not care if anyone ‘gets it’ or not — a couple people did, but they were friends and had mostly watched the show before I even did. Regardless, I’m rather pleased with it.

The two rows of lace were hand-sewn on, the wig is my old Mikoto wig from a previous costume (styled by my friend Jami because I suck with wigs), and the shoes are from one of my Ranka costumes … because, well, they match and we never actually see her shoes.

This is the one I like best.

Nekocon 2013 ~ Equestria Girls

Love it or loathe it, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls was a thing. I ended up watching it specifically for a stint on the Greatest Movie EVER! podcast, but God help me, I kinda liked it. Helps that I’m a fan of the show proper. But even though the designs were a bit goofy and the tie-in merchandise is hideous, I did enjoy it. Certainly enough to cosplay from it.

Granted, my main reason for picking Sunset Shimmer (I’m more a Rarity girl) is because I already had her jacket from another costume. Making the skirt and top was the work of a weekend, and finding the rest was relatively easy. So I got together with Michael and Maya for a little EQG group.

Now, I’d told myself beforehand that I was gonna go and find me a Princess Twilight Sparkle to steal a crown from. I didn’t think I would find one, but by God …

... she walked right past my table!

I got a lot of compliments for this one — thanks very much! It’s a fun one to do, especially with those badass boots. I’m sure she’ll be out and about later (primarily because apparently people’s kids are asking to see her!?!?).

Not sure about other MLP:FiM costumes … I’ve considered Daring Do and/or Vinyl Scratch, but we’ll see. Too many costumes on my list already.

Nekocon 2013 ~ Took me long enough.

Gosh, it’s been a busy time. After Nekocon, I had a lot of family things to take care of, then a trip to England, and I’m just now getting back into the swing of things. Nonetheless, my lovelies, I have indeed gathered together at least a few Nekocon pics.

Now I’m going to have a couple separate entries for my own costumes as usual, but here’s a handful of what I saw at the table. Again, if you see yourself, grab your pic — and if you want me to link to you, let me know!

‘Why so few pictures?’ I hear you cry. Well, because I’m working on assembling a video … and I took a lot more vids than photos! But I thought I’d throw up a handful of what I saw beforehand. No worries — I will link to the video when it’s all done and show you a few of the other neat things I saw.

‘Til then, hang tight for some other cosplay piccies of my own. Maybe I’ll get these all sorted before it’s time for MarsCon, no …?
