So, catching up on what I was going to squee-splode about last week.
Okay, the costumes are a bit better at ACen, but that has more to do with a larger amount of people, so the so-so costumes kinda get buried in the really fantastic costumes. Although, there were several really nice costumes: a Sailor Pluto (which is always kinda the rarest of the Sailor Scouts to see), some creepy Silent Hill-esque medical creatures, a Vash with a truly lovely coat, and a Wolfwood replete with ginormous gun-cross. My favorites, by far, were an incredibly tall Castiel who didn’t really respond in any way other than to do the Cas Nod of Acknowledgment (I swear I saw a Crowley wandering about too) and the cutest little 7-year old dressed as Kiki replete with GiGi (that’s the little, black cat).
It was really nice. And, I bought a bunch of ears.
These are kinda prosthetic ears made by Madqueens Jody Tonn. They basically hook around your ears and stay there. I wore them most of the day, and they were plenty comfortable. Madqueens was assisted by here lovely shop-neighbor Jeff Jacobs of It is Vapor.
These ears and pirate bunny hat are by Pawstar. <–All their stuff is super cute.
…I kinda wandered around wearing the cat-ears-kitty-kitty with the fae ears. I’m weird like that.
…if he bopped around with a couple of single-shot pistols and would bring me proper tea, that would be fine too.
I got him from Anime Fan Zone.
Grunties are cute and cuddly. Except for the Noble Grunties; they’re pretentious dicks.
I didn’t manage to get the name of the shop that sold these, but I did get the card of a shop that does really fantastic buttons of characters from different tv shows. <–Specifically, the Doctor Who buttons.
This was made by one of Gnome’s students: Kitsune Kon was her first exhibiting con. I’m going to be receiving a commissioned piece from her soon.
Okay. That’s it for now.
Courage and cake.
