It has been a thousand years since I wrote a journal entry. I'm just back from Q-con, and by 'just back' I mean that I arrived home hours ago and I'm only now starting to feel close to normal again after taking off lots of binding, makeup and very painful shoes.
This year went fantastically. I think the only thing I have to complain about it that £150 worth of merch I bought over the three days. I'll be stocked up on manga, necklaces & plushies for a while at least. I was doomed by the fact that they had over double the amount of stalls this year and the artist alley was fantastic.
I was actually very proud of how my main cosplay for Q-con turned out this year. I was worried before the convention because the binder I ordered still hadnt arrived but it turned up the morning of the convention so that saved the day. Sadly I was unable to get the correct boots and tights/stockings for my Mephisto cosplay, mainly because the boots would not have been made in time for the con so I had to do without, and no matter how much I hunted online I couldnt find the striped stockings I was looking for. If anyone knows where to get light pink and dark pink striped tights let me know, I would be your best friend.
Even with the legs of my cosplay not being quite right the cosplay was very well received and I got a lot of fantastic photographs of myself and Amaimon that I will post on here once I get them sent to me. We were also asked to be featured in the Belfast Telegraph's article on Q-con along with a couple of other cosplayers.
Here's the link to the article: www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/new… We are slide 14 of the slide show. It isnt the best photograph but hey, it's on a news site so that is a reason for me to like it. Both of us were also photographed by a large amount of Japanese tourists.
Is it bad that I arrived home and started googling stuff for my skit for nom-con that myself and Amaimon are planning?
