What I am doing:
… I cannot add a new cosplay… but what if I do….
Since apparently I missed this one the first time around… I’m gonna start with her.

you all know what I’ve played :V
Currently starting a new playthrough of DA2 (it’s been a while). I’m waiting for the Origin’s import screen right now, then Henri Hawke will be a go
… I know, her name is Henri Hawke…
It’s time once again for another con write-up. This was again one of the best cons I’ve ever been to! It was awesome to meet-up with my friends from last year (vyrantium and atypicalprincecharming!) our artist friends at scuttlebuttink and my favorite place to spent a lot of money optimysticals! We also made some new friends who want to cosplay with us in the future!
I played some awesome games thanks to IndieCade (Triad was so frustrating, but fun and Hate Plus was beautiful!) We watched a lot of people play Perfect Woman, enough so, that I really want it too… Except it’s for the Kinect so I can’t play it… But it was so much fun to watch :)
Now for the Bioware stuff. We went to all of the Bioware panels so I heard a lot. The Building a Better Romance panel was by far my favorite (expect maybe the conversation between David Gaider and Patrick Weekes about the word “straighty”. That was hilarious. I don’t think I’ve heard that word used so many times in one conversation…) My super highlight was getting to ask about if they would consider asexual romances (that’s me on the video if you find it). Last year I locked eyes with Jessica Merizan and we ended up having to stand up in a room of two hundred people. This year, I got to ask a question. Not that it wasn’t as scary…
After the panel we all got to talk to all of the devs. It was pretty dang amazing to talk to Robin about the VO work and Jessica about cosplay. We also have a picture with Karin’s absolutely amazing Celene cosplay (it’s my blog picture if you want to find it. It’s also on Twitter). That was followed by the cosplay contest which was amazing and the winners were all beautiful.
The dev signing the next day was also great. I got my copy of The Masked Empire signed by all of the devs and a really awesome card (pics to come later) of Morrigan signed by all! I also got to tell Jessica how amazing I think she is and how much I love following her work. She in turn told us we are amazing, which made me so happy :) I’m still kinda on cloud nine after the whole weekend. It was amazing (even if I did spend more than my budget…)
If you were there and saw us, or just want to fan about the whole experience, send me a message! I can’t wait until the next one (hopefully it is in August again so I can make it… Or late July. I’m gonna be out of the country starting in December)
I just realized that “mini” is short for “minimal” and I feel like my whole life has been turned upside down
Wait that’s not even true it’s short for “miniature” FUCK MY LIFE
minimal golf. not too much golf. just enough golf so it wont piss you off.
We are leaving for GaymerX in under 6 hours. I am still working. I will likely be working for another 30-45 mins. I am so glad I am not the first driver….
I’ve been working on my costume for… 3 hours now plus the 2 earlier. And I still have so much to do… I am going to be so glad when it is done… As much fun as it is going to be to wear (and super comfortable too!), it has been a rough couple of days.
I honestly didn’t think I was going to have to paint more fabric…
To Do List:
Wait for fabric to dry
Make boot covers
Make knee pads (maybe have to go to Joann’s again…)
Finish arm bracers
Make clay buckles
Finish very unnecessary arm straps…
Make shoulder guards
Attach shoulder guards to over-vest
Finish by adding buttons to hood
Pick out make-up from my large collection
And this must all be done before Thursday morning when we leave for GaymerX.
… I’m not sure I’m gonna make it… Wish me luck!!!
Update 24 hrs later. We are T-minus 3 days, 5 hours until we leave for GaymerX
- Finish adding trim to whole dress (this is the most time consuming pieces left…)
Go to store and get invisible hair ties and shoe inserts
We are now T-minus… 7 and a half (OMG!!!) hours and counting until we leave (I am going to probably going to go to bed in… 2 hours…) I now just need to finish up the trim! Yay!
