So I am still writing my post about Awesome Con this past weekend. I think I may have to break it down into at least two smaller posts because of all the pictures. I’m just not sure how to break it up, yet. Saturday and Sunday? Panels and costumes?
Either way, there are a ton of people out there who are much more on the ball than I am (and already have Tumblrs and YouTube channels and blogs well established) and have posted already. So while I finish writing up my experience, here are a couple of photos my husband and I took and a video I found on YouTube.
First, the video. It is by the wonderfully talented Code Name Cosplay. This is a brilliant video that showcases a lot of amazing cosplayers that were at the event all weekend. She got some video of me in my Captain Marvel cosplay on Sunday. (Your’s truly shows up around the 0:46 second mark, and a friend of mine with a couple of his friends is at the 1:07 point.)
And here are two photos of myself taken by my ever fantastic husband.
The first was taken on Saturday with the afore mentioned friend. I was Ms. Marvel that day. The gent cosplaying Loki and I went to high school together, and actually haven’t seen one another in at least five years. Seeing him at Awesome Con was a totally random coincidence, and it was great to see him again!
And here I am as Captain Marvel again. (My people don’t ride dinosaurs. We punch them!) This was actually a really cool prop at the Museum of Science Fiction booth. They also had a really cool 3D printer that made a miniature raptor skull, a working nut and bolt, and a four inch length of chained links! They were promoting the MOSF, which is supposed to be open some time next year. I know, I know. Dinosaurs aren’t science fiction; they’re science fact. Just bask in the awesomeness that is #raptorhead, ok?
