Hey guys! I just got back from Connecticon this past weekend. Not the best convention, but I wasn't expecting it to be either. My expectations sort of shot up after Otakon, haha! But, I mostly went because I desperately missed the convention environment. I'm definitely still glad I went. Got to wear my Faith (Mirror's Edge) costume again! =D
I'm not gonna do a con report because I'm lazy. I never do con reports because I am lazy. xD But some of my convention highlights were the two Toy Story toy soldiers walking around and the super tall Gambit! And all of the Gene Starwinds! :]
Anyway, this has super inspired me to get off my lazy butt and make costumes. I bought a beautiful wig for Sailor Neptune in the dealer's room so I'd like to get working on that. But right now, getting going on my Toph costume is going to be my priority. I've got everything I need right now (minus the tan fabric I totally screwed up by cutting too small ... oops) so I figured I should get that done.
Don't know what I'm doing convention-wise, but here is the line-up of costumes I'd like to get working on.
Toph - Avatar: The Last Airbender
Zuko - Avatar: The Last Airbender
Sailor Neptune - Sailor Moon
Gene Starwind - Outlaw Star
Xiao Qiao - Dynasty Warriors (Don't know which one yet! Probably the one with the shorts, though!)
Darc - Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits
