Hello all! I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written a post, but I’ve been busy and not very crafty. The boyfriend and I finally found a nice 2 bedroom apartment so I can have a studio, in hopes of actually making something of all this..making. But, as you can see, it looks like a bomb blew up in there, so I need to find a way to organize it so I can buy shelving to, well, organize it. AHHHHH. You can see my dilemma. I’m hacking away at it bit by bit, but it’s difficult going. Hope to have positive things to say soon!
WOOOOO WONDERCON 2012 TIME!
So, I actually had a REALLY good time at WonderCon! Last year at Comic-Con, I was a bit out of sorts with the size of the crowd and it overwhelmed me at times. Saturday at WonderCon was busy, but nothing like Comic-Con, and Friday and Sunday were *gloriously* under-crowded. We even got to hang out and wander with friends! It was awesome. I managed to catch the Nerdist panel about his upcoming YouTube station, as well as the Geek & Sundry panel about their upcoming YouTube station. Between you and me, I think Felicia Day might be more successful than Chris Hardwick, simply because she doesn’t seem to be stretching herself as thing at her 5 shows verses his 12 (or however many). She can concentrate on her 5 shows (which, by the way, sound freaking AMAZING!!!!) and make them perfect, and take expansion one step at a time. I was really only super-stoked with The Tournament of Nerds on the Nerdist channel, but maybe I’m not nerdy enough for the Nerdist? Who knows.
Now comes the best part of the whole shebang – COSPLAY! I never go super picture crazy with the cosplayers, but I did get a couple of awesome ones. And I got so many ideas of costumes I want to make when I finally get my studio up and running, man I need my sewing machine set up!! And hours and hours to knit – YES I’M GOING TO KNIT A COSPLAY COSTUME and it’s going to be fantastic if I can pull it off. But for now, here are everyone else’s magical costumes!
That’s about it from me. I think they’re all kinds of adorable and amazing and I really, really, really hope I can get my act together on at least one of my ideas so I can have some fun at Comic-Con.
