Back from Kitacon!

Mon Mar 31, 2014, 5:51 AM


Oh man, it was great.

I had an awesome time at Kita, better than last time I think! Lots of fun panels, lots of great food (god DAMN those complimentary hotel breakfasts are delicious, I could have eaten ten thousand of those little lattice pastries) and basically an awesome time all around. It absolutely flew by.

Meeting Ellen McLain again was great (I remembered to get my photo taken with her this time, haha!) and John Patrick Lowrie was such a great guy and so were...well, all the other guests, really! Lovely, lovely people. 

One thing I have to say, though, is that I respect the hell out of Homestuck troll cosplayers now. Like, how do you people do that for more than one day of the convention? It took forever to prepare - greying up and sorting out my makeup took an absolute age, oh my god. And after half a day of wearing it I couldn't wait to get it off of me, my LORD does it make your hands feel gross. Or maybe that's just me being weird about textures? Either way, Tavros has definitely been my hardest cosplay to get ready for, all my others have just been a case of getting into the clothes and putting a wig on, haha! So yeah, so much respect to people who cosplay trolls on a regular basis because I just do not know how you do it!

I'll probably put a couple of my Tav pictures in my scraps in case anyone wants to see Socket's First Troll Cosplay, haha.

But now the con's over, and it's back to post-convention life for me! Luckily it's not too jarring an experience, seeing as I brought back sO MUCH STUFF... The fridge is full of Ramune (because, for those who aren't aware, melon soda is basically my favourite drink on the planet, and tofucute don't sell it online in increments higher than one....so naturally i have to buy like a zillion bottles at the con ahaha) and my bag is full of sweets and also the Phoenix Wright manga and a little Mikasa figurine. I couldn't resist. Kitacon's dealers room is always determined to suck all the money out of me, but I have no regrets. None.

Also I bought one of those little Japanese sweet kits where you mix all the powders into little moulds and make stuff? I'm really excited to try it out because I've always thought those were cool. Little candy doughnuts! Hopefully they'll turn out well and stuff. 

Once I'm done gorging myself on sweets and drinks (and also sleeping a lot!), though, I'll be getting back to doing the art thing. I'll open up another of my commission slots, and aside from that I'll be practising and doing general drawings stuff and finishing off my various WiPs! Expect lots of art this month. :)

  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Drinking: White tea

I just really like drawing stuff. I like it lots. One day I'd like to be an illustrator, but right now I'm just busy practising and trying to keep productive.

Critique me and I'm forever yours. Nitpicky as you like. I will actually adore you.
