NYCC 2013!


I recently attended New York Comic Con, and had a grand ol' time. I went all four days with a group of friends. I have never had so much fun at a con before. This is the best one I have attended so far. There were so many people and everyone was very nice and social. I really enjoyed cosplaying at a con this size as well. I'll do a quick day by day run down so you know what I was up to.

Thursday.
First day of the con. I was all bright eyed and bushy tailed. Not at all ready for how overwhelmed I would be once we walked in. :) I basically just explored the main areas, checked out the Kotobukiya panel, and met some sweet people.
With Cupcake and LeeAnna. Such a happy photo.

Friday.
 I cosplayed Melty Granite. I am beyond thrilled by how much people enjoyed this costume. All that hard work really paid off! I was even photographed for mtv. View that here!

 This day ended up being the most pleasantly random. Had a wonderful photo shoot with Shelley, that I can't wait to see the photos of! She is so nice and I had a lot of fun working with her. Earlier that day, as I was waiting for my shoot, Ming of Comic book Men walked right by me! Of course I was hit by the shy bug and was not able to say hi. NEXT TIME. After the shoot, my bestie and I ended up playing Just Dance for a show that was streaming live. It was pretty hilarious. I had no clue what I was doing but somehow won. Go figure! We later explored artist alley some more.

Saturday.
Another day a new cosplay. This time as Sailor Ironman. A few people were confused and thought I was Sailor Mars. Haha no biggie. ^^ Went to the Once Upon a Time panel! It was actually the only panel I made it to that day. I attempted to go to The Walking Dead panel, but it was already full. We decided to go relax a bit before going to the NYCC Cosplay Afterparty. My friend, hubby and I got to meet Yaya Han there. She is stunning. Her cosplay was flawless. I am sososo happy to have met her.
 I changed out of my boots because they were not kind to me. :P ouchy.

Sunday.
The last day. By this time I was completely out of it, but still not ready for the con to end. I spent the day admiring cosplayers and shopping around artist alley and the show floor. As I was going about the show floor I realized I missed SO MUCH STUFF. I have no clue how I didn't see everything the other 3 days haha. Here is what I ended up buying!

Two Harley Quinn prints from Jamie Tyndall (who is one of my favorite artist, check him out!). I plan to cosplay one of these. A print of the beautiful LeeAnnaVAMP.


I am very happy to have gotten these two books! Shakespeare Star Wars was such a fun find. The chopsticks were a gift from the Kotobukiya toy panel. Can't wait to use these. Also grabbed a FiendorFauxx shirt at Vampybitme's booth. I just love it!! This shirt is definitely an instant fave.



There you have it! A little bit of my experience at nycc. I didn't even mention half of the stuff I did! It was a fun time but it is nice to be home sweet home. Time to unwind and not wear makeup for a week! :D

Cosplay Update!

Throw the confetti because it is time for a cosplay update! (ノ◕O◕)ノ*:・゚ I am almost done with these costumes.

Melty is coming along very nicely. This costume is so kawaii! Pictured here is her cape, hat, a close up of the top of her dress, garters, and garter belt. The only thing left to do is add ruffles to the gloves, and glitter hearts to the front of the garter belt.


Next is Sailor Ironman!

I am adding snaps to the back of the bow and collar so that everything stays in place. To keep the arc attached to the bow, I will be drilling holes into the bottom and tying it on.

 Here are my Ironman accessories. The tiara was made by WindoftheStars' Cosplay. It is really good quality and super cute. You can't help but feel like a mahō shōjo while wearing it. 

Next time you see these cosplays they will be 100% done!
later babes. xxo
