I've been too busy making costumes, getting through AX and getting over being sick to update this journal. But I'm taking these 10 min to do it right now, rawwr! Thought I'd post my San Diego Comic Con schedule since SDCC is the only convention where I am not chained to a booth so I'm ready to go nuts! Costumes I'm bringing:
Daenerys - in the planning stages for almost a decade! My favorite character in my favorite book series. She has helped gotten me through some rough moments in my life. The ultimate strong female. I can't even begin to describe how much I love Dany. This is the year to finally make it happen, with the Game of Thrones TV show exploding all over the world, and with the fifth book coming out, and with George himself and the throne being at SDCC. My mission is to get a photo on the throne (just gotta sit my butt down in it for 1 picture!!!), and dear Gawd I hope so, meet the man himself while in costume.
I've been collecting materials all year and started on the costume about 10 days ago. I really hope it will look good ;_;... Of course I didn't get to do everything I planned on, but at Dragoncon on Friday we're doing a whole group so I can add details to the outfit for then.
Sif - I love red costumes I've discovered. It's a good color on me and I like sewing scarlet fabric lol. Plus Lady Sif is badass! I was a bit disappointed in the Thor movie and Sif in it, so I went for the comic book version. All that fur will be hawt in July weather but I don't care!
Amber - since the first preview images came out for Sucker Punch I have been told to make Amber by various friends, and I said EFF YES! LOVE the fighter pilot look. Actually, I liked the movie, too! Been working on her diligently and trying to nail down all the details. I love that my prop sourcing included buying candy lol.
Will be with Monique as Baby Doll at SDCC, and hoping for a full group at Dragoncon. Who is still doing it there???
Wednesday: Flying in for Preview Night - no costumes of course, just going to drool over the new goodies on display!
Thursday: Daenerys Targaryen (book version) from A Song of Ice and Fire
no costumes in the afternoon as I want to SHOP!
Friday: 10am - 12:30pm modeling at Anovos booth in Star Trek TOS red dress
1pm modeling at Gentle Giants booth
afternoon Amber from Sucker Punch (stalking the Bunny Mech)
Sif from Thor (comic book version) for photos
Saturday: Sif from Thor, 1pm judging the costume contest at Marvel booth,
afternoon Ame-Comi Wonder Woman
Sunday: No costumes, gotta head back home since Otakon is the following weekend (egads!)
I'll also be modeling at the Lucas Film party and rocking it out at various other parties at night. I'm also supposed to be in the Morgan Spurlock documentary about Comic Con but who knows how they cut and edited the footage they shot of me last year... lol.
Since I have three new costumes, I am open for photoshoots and groups if they line up time wise. I'm very excited to see old friends, go shopping, eat great food and geek out at the mecca of the fandom world!
