I spent the weekend at TCC this year similarly to how I spent many of the conventions in 2016 - working with the costume contest. This time, however, I was working with a different team of people on a different type of contest. Comicon doesn’t offer a masquerade-style contest, instead it’s a “Craftsmanship Contest” which gives entrants a few minutes each to talk to the judges and show off their costumes up-close. My job was the same as usual though, taking entrant info, answering questions, and generally herding cats. While the contest kept me quite busy all weekend, I was fortunate to have been visited at the table by many of my friends, and of course the rest of the contest team are all great people! Being busy meant that I only took a few photos but let’s face it, I’m always terrible at remembering to do that.
While I didn’t do any shoots, I did have fun with my weekend cosplay (especially coordinating with Rikkuriffic on Fri and Sat), and the reactions to Holtzmann were heart-warming ^_^. Sadly, almost nobody seemed to recognize our Rat Queens characters >_>
However, I got to meet and hang out with lots of cool new people and old friends, between cosplayers stopping by the contest table and chatting with the neighbouring tables/booths. And if you want to check out the results of the Craftsmanship Contest, all the photos are over on their facebook gallery. I had a surprisingly great time at the convention this year, and I'm hoping that I can do the same again next time!
Oh dear, poor Mai Sheri has fallen down a hole in the past month, only crawling out to Save Hyrule and cause mayhem. but I promised I would post my Frost Con photos eventually, and here we are.
I spent the weekend working the booth for Cosplay for a Cure which kept me fairly well occupied so I didn't take a lot of photos or do a lot of wandering around. I did, however, chat with most of the people manning the guest/club tables in the room during slower times though, and that was nice to see old friends and meet new people! I did manage to squeeze in a mini shoot for Holtzmann with Dream Land Photography and got some shots at the booth in my bassist Alice, but those pics will be posted a bit later.
So here are my photos:
... and of course some lovely hall shots that I've found:
Bonus! Maximum Khaos snuck me into his convention video!
