It’s a wrap! 

So yep! 

Con season is over! And it ended with a bang!!!! 

A good one that is! 

RICC was this past weekend and it was amazing! 

I was super busy all weekend long… so busy I barely saw the con itself apart from walking an hour or so on Sunday! 

I did get Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s autograph on Saturday, thanks to a good friend Javier Rosado and his wife Omayra. They bought the auto before the con and didn’t realize it was for Saturday! Since they were attending the con only in Sunday, they gave the auto tkt to me! 

YEEEEY! 

I was sooo soooo happy! That was the only autograph I actually wanted but with the  possibility of having to move soon, I just couldn’t justify spending $85 on a scribble! (Very special scribble! But still!) 

So when Javier told me I could have it I literally danced up and down on my bed!!!! Lol 

It was insane to actually get the autograph. There was apparently 400 people on his line and I had just 20 minutes before I had to be lining up people for the contest! 

😳😳😳😳😳😳😳

But thanks to very understanding people I was able to get the autograph! And I even got a hug and a kiss from Jeffrey!

If you know me, you know I don’t fan girl very often! I can count on one hand thebtimes I did it and this was def one of them!!!! 

IT WAS DENNY DUQUETTE!!!! 

Of all people I never ever imagined I’d meet him and although I did quit the walking dead, I do have to thank the show. If it wasn’t for it I don’t think JDM would ever do signings at a con! So yep! Thanks TWD!!!!! 

The costume contests, both kids and adults went well! Thank goodness! The after party was super fun!!!! I just wish I had more time tô Hang out with friends!!!! But thanks ok! 

I am actually con season is over. Even though I haven’t done many cons this year, I’m glad to  Just stay home and not have to worry about cons and costumes. (Even if I’m already planning ComiCONN in my head! lol FOXWOODS HERE WE COME!!!) 

But for. I will just be home and relax with my pup!!!! 

Oh… yeah! But I do need to fix my wings! And finish my scout! 

Oh! And I need to work on my secret costume for celebration! 

Oh well! There’s no rest for the wicked! Lol 

Here are some of the pics I took this weekend. 

I didn’t take many! Well actually these are all the picture I took hahah too busy to even get my phone out for a pic! Lol 

And me! Busy at work!!! 

PCD – post con depression 

I already miss RICC SO MUCH! 

It was just soooo much fun! 

If you didn’t go, you missed it!!!!! 

Like always I don’t spend much time on my phone while I’m on the con floor. Not even for pictures. 

I even left my phone in my room quite a few times! I don’t really mind being away from it but it does mean I take very few pictures during the day!!!!! 

Here are a few of them! 

Great moments with great friends!!!!!! 

Opening Ceremony with the New England Garrison (and a few CTG ers)

RICC

I know I haven’t posted in soooo long. I sort of took a few months off of making costumes and worrying about them! It’s been nice and I miss it! Especially now with my 2 favorite cons coming up I’m getting the itch! 

Let’s see what I can put together in less than a month!!! 

Hahah

And first con on my schedule this end of the year is RICC! 

If you have never been, SERIOUSLY! What are you waiting for???

They guest list is amazing and HUGE! 

There’s always someone or something to please everyone!

And there’s me! Hahahahah

I will be there!!!!!  

 

RICC

I’m gonna say it again!!! This is one of my most favorite cons ever! If not the FAVORITEST! Hahah yep! That good! With of making up words for it.

It’s that kind of con that is big, but now annoyingly big like NYCC, and basically everyone I know in New England goes attends it!
It’s fun all day and night long, with great guests and fun stuff to see during the day, and super cool parties at night! Then… The party always goes in in someone’s room!!!! 😉

Like always I barely take pics at cons! I usually don’t have pockets or don’t even carry my phone with me!
Seriously, who needs a phone or log on social media when social life is right there in front of you waiting to be lived and enjoyed?!? Right???

But here are a few if the pics I took during the weekend!!!

So much fun! I miss my RICC family a lot already!!!! Can’t wait for next year!!!! 🙂

Halloween party costume

So, since I am still stuck on the bits I can’t get right for the other costume, I decided it was time to step away from it a little bit and do something more fun!!!! So yesterday I started working on my Halloween costume!

I usually don’t have any energy to sew or work in costumes when I get home from work but yesterday I was done at 4pm and just couldn’t waste that time!
🙂
This year, like I said in a previous post, RICC is throwing a Halloween party! It will be epic! Like super duper epic and I am soooo excited for it!
I have to tell you a secret! I have always been crazy about Halloween. I used to plan for my costumes for a whole year (that was when I used to buy them at party city lol) But since I started costuming… It’s just not the same thing anymore. I don’t really care about it as I used to and if I have a party to go, I usually just decide the costume super last minute and it’s always something simple and not expensive. I have a huge phobia of wearing any of my expensive ones around drinks and drunk people. Especially me!
But this year I am excited about the RICC party! I actually decided on this costume while I was at dragon con!

I wanted something fun, easy to make, cheap, and above all EASY TO WEAR! Something that I can dance, and bounce and be drunk while wearing it and not risk ruining it or having sore feet or even malfunctions!
So what did I come up with???????????

A party version of Ariel’s blue skirt!

IMG_0683.JPG

A LOT of people tell me I should do an Ariel costume! And I really mean a LOT! Even people that I don’t know!!! I know it’s because of the hair, and if I’d ever make one it would be this one! (Ok I confess! Last year I heard an interview with Michael rooker – ❤ – and they asked him which one was his favorite Disney princess and he said Ariel! I think he was just throwing the only name he remembered haha but well! THAT is actually what motivated me to at least consider making an Ariel costume! Lol I know! I know! I just love that man!!!)
So the party version I thought of, is actually with a TUTU! The top part would pretty much be the same as the picture, but instead of the long skirt a tutu of the same color! And you know, one day, if I decide to make the accurate version, all I need is the skirt!

Doing it on a budget was also something I kept in mind! I was chatting with my friend ruby and he said how cool would it be if all costumers/cosplayers would make Halloween costumes in a budget of 20 bucks! That would be fun to see! I agree! I'm not sure if he is doing that but I am!

I bought the blue tule on amazon! 100 yards for 11 bucks! Free shipping! I bought blue elastic for 2 bucks also on amazon. I'm drafting the black top from scratch and only using fabric I have at home. I have enough plastic boning so I will use that as well! The shirt… I'm going to use the blue one I got for my DisneyBounding Anna! And also the blue bow I got for my DisneyBounding Belle! ( I will make a post about my Disneybounding plans soon) And my black flats!
So I spent in total 13 dollars for this costume! How cool is that????

IMG_0684.JPG

IMG_0680.JPG

I didn’t think I was going to use all 100 yards… I mean ONE HUNDRED YARDS! Are you kidding me, right?!? But I started cutting 24″ strips (it’s a party tutu people! I wanted short! Lol) and when I tied up the first one on the elastic… I just realized I wanted a super fluffy one!

IMG_0681.JPG

Btw… I could totally SEW a tutu but… I’m short on time. The no sew ones looks as good and are so much faster!
Because I wanted super fluffy I doubled the strips of tule! I used 2 instead of one!

IMG_0682.JPG

You have no idea how awesome it looks!
I wore it last night over my jeans and just hopped around in happiness screaming “I have a tutu” wondering why I waited this long to make myself one! TUTUS are awesome!
I have no clue what came to me to have this idea. I dont even remember! But I know one thing: IT WAS THE BEST IDEA EVER!!!!!

Oh… And also… This costume is my “deadline” for my red hair! I’ve been thinking of dying it darker again, and I just kept postponing because of this or that convention… And then I decided I should keep it bright red for this costume so I wouldn’t have to worry about a wig! But after that… I’ll say bye bye to this brightness! 🙂

new costume!!!!

I have a new costume ready.

well… almost ready.

there are a few bits on the sleeves that I can’t get it right!!!

I spent days working on them, just to take them apart and do it again.

RICC is fast approaching and I am faced with a decision to make. I can totally wear the costume without the bits… but I know im gonna hate it and it’s gonna bother me, and I will be that annoying person telling everyone I see that “omg it’s missing some parts that I just couldn’t do it”. and I know myself I will just want to take it off as quick as possible and hate every picture I see of it!

But if I can’t get it right… and I decide not to wear it… i’m going to be mad at myself all weekend long because ive been planning on wearing this costume at RICC since last years con, and also not being part of the group… one person already dropped out and I will hate to be another one. =/

aawww I don’t really know what to do.

and I still need to work on the Halloween party one….

=/

Sew, sew, all day long

I am freaking out here.
RICC is coming too fast! And I have an event tomorrow, and next weekend is NYCC, then there’s only ONE WEEKEND before RICC!

I haven’t even finished the costume I have been planning for a WHOLE YEAR! Or done a makeup test which is such a HUGE part of this costume!
To make things worse I decided I want another costume for the con!
AND I havent even started on the Halloween one!

OMG OMG OMG
So I spent Friday afternoon, and woke up Saturday at 7:30 and sewed all freaking day!

Drafting and sewing the sleeves took most part of the day tho so in still not as far ahead as I would like!
😦
