Hey guys! I just wanted to write up a little something for Megacon!
Friday I was dressed a Super Sailor Uranus, with some AMAZING other ladies as the other scouts! We were only missing a moon ironically!
/ Mars set the whole thing up, I want to send her a huge thanks for allowing me to be part of the group! Trying to all meet up was a little crazy, but hey, the important part was is that we all did meet up and it ROCKED!
was killing it as Mercury! We go way back but I havent gotten to see her recently and it was so great and hilarious to finally get to hang out/ cosplay together! That girl can make me laugh!
are two super talented gals that cosplayed Jupiter and Venus respectively and also two ladies I have been wanting to cosplay with for sometime! It was so cool getting to know them more, and actually spending time together!
I met for the first time this con! It gets better when you realize that we cosplayed Uranus and Neptune together, which I think most people would expect to know each other haha! But she is a lovely lady who was sooooo easy to talk to and get to know, and Im so happy we did get to meet, because she is a great person! LAST but not least,
were also there with Tranquility as Pluto and Hannamaru as Saturn! I was lucky enough to be able to cosplay with them in Otakitty's Mina group but this time I got to spend more time with them, and actually chat with them some and thats another thing Im glad I got to do, they both are just fantastic and I hope we get to cosplay togther/hang out more in the future! PLUS they made my tiara for me so we could match, and brought me a matching star for my choker! We did a group shoot with ~thirdstop
, and also did some pairs/solos with him. AHHHH so excited for the results! We also did an Outer Senshi shoot with
later that day, and despite all of us dying from heel pain, I think the shoot went fantastically! God I love Sailor Moon so much and it was just a dream to be a part of a group with such talented ladies I look up to and especially to have a full outers group (I love them!)
Phew so Saturday was crazy! I was Aria T'loak from Mass Effect, and if you know me you know I love Mass Effect to the point of obsession haha! I was and am ecstatic to FINALLY have done a Mass Effect costume, AND one of my alllllll time favorite characters to top that off! Im so happy that Karyna helped me out on this, by motivating me to not give up on the costume no matter HOW nuts the outfit drove me (she was doing Nyreen after all!), and for applying my headpeice and painting me<3 Im so incredibly proud of how this costume came together, and I got to shoot with
who ive wanted to shoot with forever, AND
who is easily one of my favorite photographers to shoot with whenever possible. Seriously talented guys here! Favorite photogs, favorite series/character....Im sooooooo pumped to see the results! Anyways, the reception for the costume was overwhelming and I want to thank everyone for being so awesome and friendly. For once I really had the chance to meet a lot of new people, talk shop with some, and talk games with others! OH, and to the group of guys that would scream "DONT FUCK WITH ARIA" or "WHATS THE ONE RULE OF OMEGA?" whenever they saw me.....you guys made my day. Rock on.
So Sunday. Saturday night I had a rooooough night sickness wise, so when it came to wearing a costume, I just didnt want to! BUT
and I worked super hard to get our Tinkerbell and Rosetta done, and had two shoots scheduled so we wore them for the morning then changed into regular clothes to FINALLY go in the dealers room! (It was my first time the whole weekend!
) Im glad we did wear them though, the pictures are gorgeous...Im just so sad we didnt get to the big Disney gathering!
OVERALL, it was a great weekend. I got to spend a lot of time with my wifey Sarah which was much needed, and got to become closer with a lot of friends that I dont get to see much. I for once loved every single costume I wore, and was beside myself with how kind everyone was! Plus I got to be a part of some killer groups, and I so hope to be a part of more in the future! (Though us sailor scouts DO have another sailor moon related group planned, and Im soooooooooo excited/nervous for it haha!) I wish I had words to describe how much I NEEDED a great weekend, and how thankful I am for everyone!
OH and get ready for Megacon photospam once I get them! I have my Rosetta pics from both shoots, and will be spreading those out. And from what Ive seen from around the con / hallway photos, Im going to be in love with my Sailor Uranus and Aria pics as well! EEEEEEEE cant wait!!
I might have to give in and get a premium membership again....ugh the ads are killing me. They block a lot of important buttons/links so I cant see or press them without pressing the add and it is driving me nuuuuuuuuuts.
