Time for another con report 8D
So this convention is mostly about comics and such, unlike the regular conventions we usually attend. Our friends that went last year gave this convention a really positive review so we dediced to attend this year.
Somewhere in 2014 bradaan
and me decided we should cosplay from Spider-Man because we grew up watching the cartoon when we were little and we're also big fans of the Spider-Man movies. I picked Mary Jane and bradaan
joined me as Gwen Stacy. I also convinced my sweet boyfriend to cosplay Peter Parker.. which would be a pretty subtle cosplay anyway.
The cosplay was so casual I already wore it when leaving home, but I painted my eyebrows red in the train... it would've looked silly if I did it earlier. Got a lot of strange looks from the regular guy sitting across of us in the train. We also met up with SedNobiS
at the train station and we traveled the last part of the journey together
The weather was terrible but fortunately the convention wasn't too far away. Apparantly we were one of the first cosplayers to arrive because I was swamped with photoshoot questions right after arriving :') Which was really flattering I suppose, especially considering I was wearing such a simple outfit. Anyway, we had to hurry because we had a workshop planned with a friend of ours and his thermoplastics. I had never worked with thermoplastic before so it was really insightful. I have no clue what to use it for, though. Perhaps maybe Saber Alter armor... but that won't be anytime soon
After the workshop we strolled around the dealerroom for a bit. I had my mind set on a specific POP (which was King Joffrey from GoT) but they didn't have him! *cry* After that it was time for some food. We sat down in a beautiful hallway at the con. It was pretty much THE hallway for all photoshoots because it was really pretty. We had some photos taken and I also did a small shoot with bradaan
as Gwen. I was also filmed by DoctorCow
, which is always a lot of fun!
I had my BF's broken lens so I didn't make a lot of photos, since he borrowed mine.
Later that day we also visited the cosplay show called the Galaxy Masquarade. After that we sat down at a really comfortable cafe and had some small talk with friends. Fun fun fun :3 At the end of the day we were also joined by senseNcreativity
who cosplayed Black Cat, so we took some pics as the ladies of the Spider-Man franchise
After that the day came to an end. It was a fun little convention even though I didn't buy anything. It was really relaxing. It was also really funny that many people didn't seem to recognize me as a redhead. I was also planning on only wearing this cosplay for this convention but bradaan
convinced me to re-wear this on the sunday of Animecon (most likely). Because it's fun and easy. Sure why not! She'll be cosplaying Gwen then also
I won't be back next year because I will have my trip to Japan! Going back there after five years :3!!
