Hey guys! So on Saturday I went to the London Film and Comic Convention (it's kind of becoming a yearly tradition!) with flying_girl73
. As usual, it was fun but exhausting, and I met a lot of cool people and picked up some nerd crap I couldn't get anywhere else. For example! I got the Knight & Squire collected tpb signed by the artist, Jimmy Broxton, who due to my complete inability to talk normally thought I asked for 'Knight on Squire action' and proceeded to laugh hysterically for about five minutes while I blushed (for those not in the know: Squire is 16. Knight is... considerably older) and then drew me a lovely picture that was thankfully not
what I'd asked for. I also got Avatar: The Lost Adventures and another pony (Applejack!). The con this year was totally rammed because everyone wanted to see Karen Gillan (she was screened off in her own corner, it was insane) but I suppose it wasn't as crowded is it might have been in the US! You guys have the really serious cons.
Now, the other reason i go to these things is to see the cosplayers. Not in any weird way, I just really love seeing people dressed up as their favourite characters and enjoying themselves, and I get a kick out of sharing a moment with someone when I recognise who they are. So 90% of the pictures I take are of cosplayers, and I thought I'd share them with you guys!( Pictures pictures pictures! )
Anywhoo, that's it for cosplayer fun until the video games con in October, when I hope to participate myself! I was thinking of being human Twilight Sparkle. Apparently the wig wouldn't be as hard to do as I thought and I already own most of the stuff I'd need (completely by accident, I dress in a lot of pink and purple anyway) and I might knit a sweatervest with her cutie mark as a sort of argyll pattern. Kind of like this?
I'll keep you all posted.
