It's hard to believe we're already into April! Wasn't New Years just yesterday?
Well, two conventions have already (somehow) gone sailing by, so it's time for a mini con report and a look at what's to come.
Con-G was the first convention of the year. Sadly, this was its last year, though we still had a blast. Just the cousin and I this year, and we went as Sherlock and Molly Hooper (from Sherlock
in case that's not clear), respectively. It was a very strange cosplay for me, mostly because I'm the most modest person alive and rarely wear anything less than five layers, especially when it comes to cosplays. I felt very exposed. XD
Mostly we puttered around all day, popped into the Doctor Who panel, and took photos (a great many of which were absolutely silly in nature). Wrapped up the day by getting matching commemorative 'I am SHERlocked' pins and watching 'The Sign of Three' when we got home.
Next came Toronto Comicon, which I went to 'obscure and unconventional', as Julia Ogden from Murdoch Mysteries
, or The Artful Detective
if you're American. That one was much
more my style; full chemise/petticoats/steel boned corset/corset cover/six metres of skirt/blouse. And the hair...! D: My hair is naturally curly, anyway, but I had to rag curl it to achieve her signature look. They're a pain in the butt to sleep on, let me tell you.
Anywho, twelve people knew who I was, if you can believe it! It was fantastic, if not heavy and cumbersome, to waltz around in those skirts all day.
And now, looking ahead, are a couple more much-loved conventions: Ottawa Comic Con and Fan Expo!
For Ottawa Comic Con, I'm working on another Helen Magnus- that black pinstripe suit she wears in 'For King and Country' and 'Tempus', with the pink vest/godets in the skirt. I'm SO looking forward to that, because I intend to get a photo with Amanda Tapping in it- eek!
Day two is... well, it's a surprise even to me! XD Depends on whether I get things finished, really.
As for Fan Expo, I'll be re-wearing Helen on Saturday, and I'm currently entertaining the thought of Julia on the Sunday.
For the moment, though, I don't like to look ahead any further than tomorrow, because there's so much left to be done.
