AmeCon & Beyond

So it’s been a tad quiet here again! AmeCon was a blast, one of the best laid back events I’ve been to in a long time. The only “big thing” I did was help out a bunch of friends with the live roleplay show of Adventure Bastards, which is available on YouTube here! I won’t give anything away but it was great fun to be part of!

So aside from the excitement of Adventure Bastards, AmeCon was super chill. I did a small shoot with PopcornKuma as Sakura & Tomoyo with Paper Cube, but all of my costumes were pretty simple and easy to wear. I hung out on the steps for most of the event and caught up with a load of friends and got pleasantly wasted in the evening. Would definitely AmeCon again!

Between AmeCon and now I fixed up some more bits and bobs on costumes, started some small projects and did a small shoot for Shallotte locally. The weather was really pleasant for a couple of weeks so I took the opportunity to get at least one costume photographed while it lasted. The full shoot with an updated Costume Roundup will be posted soon, since all of the updates I needed to make on Shallie are pretty much complete!

The next event for me is EGX is where I’ll be entering the UK’s European Cosplay Gathering preliminaries! I don’t want to reveal too much about what I’m doing just yet, but all that’s left for me now is to nail my performance and get my props made, which is kind of a personal record. Two years running I’ve dropped out of ECG, so this is a disturbing level of “prepared” for me. So far I’ve made some good preparations and got my audio (mostly) done, so fingers crossed it’ll all be ready in time.

I’m also hosting a talk at EGX on Competitive Cosplay, at 3pm on Sunday! There are tons of great panels and talks all weekend, so if you’re attending definitely pop by the Cosplay Stage! My talk is directly before ECG qualifiers, so if you want to bag a good seat to watch come along early, sit down, listen to me ramble and get ready for the show!

Finally, in October I’ll be heading up north for Rai-Con, an anime convention in Glasgow. It’s ran by the same lovely team who hosted Glasgow Comic Con, so I’m happy to be heading back up and supporting their events, because they’re an excellent bunch. So far I’m not sure what costume to wear yet, but I’ve been working on Shia from Pita-Ten recently so it may be her if nothing else stands out in time!
