So the month of September to pretty much mid October every weekend I will be at a show which I decided to call my little "tour" which all kicked off with Dragon*con
This was my first D*con since every year something else gets in the way of me going. It didn't hit me until after I left Atlanta how much fun I really did have despite all the stresses during the show. I think next year if I plan it out better it will be a killer. It was a great show for my birthday since I knew so many people there and it really was the superbowl of costumes. It honestly was a blur to pick some of my favorites since even the simple ones up close have incredible detail. Yet again Black Widow was my most loved costume, I find that rather funny that my most simple costume gets the most rave (I know Avengers just came out Black Widow madness EVERYWHEREEEE). Overall I give Dragon*con an A- for the little things that pissed me off but that was more of a personal thing than the convention it's self.
Baltimore Comic Con
Last weekend was BCC which seemed to fly past my eyes since it was only a 2 day show. And after Dragon*Con this show seemed small and quick but still nice to get to see a new convention. It was really just a weekend of photoshoots and not much else. I did run over to the costume contest, honestly I usually don't care for them considering I see costuming more as fun than a competition. I had one fickle about this particular costume contest though was that there was no pre-juding just walk on stage pose and be judged. I find that to be a bit unfair, though the people who won I thought the awards were well deserved but sometimes the judges don't see how much work is put into simple little costumes and give out awards to the ones that are just big and shiny. I'd like to point out one in particular, there was a girl as slave Leia while from far away you would think it would be a store bought sort of costume.. not because it was bad.. because it was that good, she was standing behind me so I ease dropped and the costumes took her months to make and the details on it were mind blowing that you would think no way in hell this is handmade. That was my only little problem was that sometimes the simple costumes can be the most challenging and incredible but it can be over looked if not asked or explained. But still not ragingin on the con or the costumers that won, but just showing that you don't need a giant robot that lights up to be something breath taking.
Mary Jane Body Paint Shoot
Now I don't want to go into to much detail about this but I did have a photoshoot yesterday of something that I always wanted to do. The body painter Jessie is an incredible artist and I am so glad he wanted to work on this with me, I'll leave it at that and have the pictures speak for it's self
This weekend is the CGA show than I will be in
and probably Miami and whatever else comes my way!
