The Long awaited Pensacon pictures!! Sadly since we spent a good deal selling I was not able to take near as many pictures as I wanted but here is what I did take.
Picture 1 : My lovely booth set up! After we finished setting up it scared me how professional it almost looked. I felt like a real vendor.
Picture 2: Congratulations to http://thegeeksgarage.tumblr.com/ who correctly guessed that we were going to be weeping angels despite my lack of posts caused by my own lazyness. My friend Kenzy did the sewing of the dress and hands as well as the base of the wings, I did the masks and the wigs and the pattern on the wings. It was several days work and we were up untill three a.m. on the night before the convention finishing it up. It was a fun costume with its pro’s and con’s. The Pro’s were that they attracted attention. I was interviewed twice by local newspapers and blogs who also would ask about my booth and sales. Lots of people asked to take pictures and it was a blast scaring people. The cons were that they costumes were buly and difficult to move in. We would have to remove the wings if we wanted to move at all and the masks made it difficult to talk to customers when they came by and looked at stuff. We agreed that we will do this cosplay again just not at any conventions that I’ll be selling at again.
Pictures 3 and 4: We anticipated Saturday to be a busy day (and it was) so we went with a more easier to move costume. Steampunk!! I was so excited to have a proper steampunk Cosplay. Kenzey (Picture 3) made the corsets, Goggles and jewelry were created by me and the skirt was a thrift store find. And yes that is what happens to my hair when I sleep in curlers. I am currently working on a belt for the next convention and am looking foward to adding more and more to it as we go.
Picture 5 : I had to get a picture with this adorable Ariel. I mean come on, look at her. She’s adorable!
Picture 6 : Sunday was My Little Pony day! I knew we would be tired that day and wanted an easy costume. Luckily my boyfriend had given my this sweet little number for Christmas. It was a big hit with all the kids and kept me toasty warm when they turned up the air conditioning.
So there was my first convention experience. I had a ton of fun, sold lots of jewelry, gave out lots of business cards, attended a couple of steampunk panels, and even got to chat with the Captain of Airship Isabella. I’m already planning to sell at another local Convention in October (Paracon) and was also invited to vendor at one in Tallahassee, FL. An author Friend of mine are also talking about next year or the year after about sharing a room at Dragon Con if this contnues to do well.
The entire experience has given me a much needed boost in confidence. I am finally starting to feel like I am on my way to the path I am supposed to be, doing something I love and can be happy doing.
You are correct!! Since you were the fist to guess you get to pick between a custom necklace, a story request or a crochet stuffed animal. Congrats!
The latest Night Vale episode left me a both disturbed and a bit giddy. The reason. My name is Fay. Every time Cecil mentioned Fay’s name I squeeled a little bit. It’s not a name you hear very often and I was excited to hear it in my favorite podcast. Part of me wants to try and make some sound bites of the ending so I can use it as my alarm.

I wanted to add some more but my computer is being difficult. I’ll post them later when it decides to behave.
