Before I dive into my Obsessively Detailed Recaps, I thought I'd do a costume round-up post from this year's D*C.

The final tally was nine costumes, with three con debuts (Annie, USO Girl, Ravenclaw student). In order of wearing:

1. Wedding Dress
2. Annie, from Community (episodes "A Fistfull of Paintballs" and "For a Few Paintballs More")
3. Hawkgirl, as part of the Renaissance Justice League
4. Captain America USO Girl
5. Elizabeth Swann, POTC plum dress
6. "Gaga" Quinn, from Glee (episode "Theatricality")
7. Ravenclaw student, Harry Potter
8. Penny, The Big Bang Theory
9. Suki (Fire Nation disguise), Avatar: the Last Airbender

Many many pictures all under the cut! )

HELLO LIVEJOURNAL!

I HAVE SURVIVED SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON FOR A NINTH YEAR!

I did not do Masquerade for the first time ever!

But I still stayed up way late and got no sleep because I was finishing costumes for Saturday!

But I GOT THEM FINISHED!!!!

Behold! Avatar: The Last Airbender, Season 3!

Piandao the Sword Master:

I just checked back through my LJ, and apparently I didn't do one of these last year! Boo on me!

So here's what I made in 2010!

List with pictures underneath the cut! )

Plans for 2011:
1. Something historical. 18c, Regency, 1860s-- I'm not sure which yet, but I've got fabric for all.
2. I badly want to do a Community group at D*C. I think we could rock their Halloween costumes. ([livejournal.com profile] lordofhaladin would make the most amazing PeggyFleming!Chang ever, amirite?)
3. Whatever we end up doing for SDCC Masq.
4. Fire Nation Suki, and finish Rogue's Piandao. Legend of Korra is coming this fall, so this SDCC should be pretty big, ATLA-wise.
5. Sekrit group costume Brittany S. Pierce as Britney Spears from her "Toxic" video. Even more nude-colored mesh and rhinestones!
6. Sekrit costume for [livejournal.com profile] barbossas_wench's group.
7. Actual Renaissance Hawkgirl! Not that [livejournal.com profile] aviendiora's dress wasn't amazing!
8. Whatever costumes Rogue wants/needs.
9. ETA: How did I forget this??? RAPUNZEL.
10. Whatever comes up!

The laundry is in the dryer (wash ALL the things) so it's time for me to start on this year's Obsessively Detailed Dragon*Con Report! (Yeah, I know I haven't done CV yet. Or SDCC. Or SYTYCD. Or summer camps. Or Children of Eden. I will though, I promise!)

Right so! Our tale this year begins on Wednesday, since we had a redeye to Dulles, and thence to Atlanta, so that we could arrive early on Thursday. Full report and pictures under the cut! My poor, poor dress dummy... )

Okay, so Thursday was not particularly interesting. I promise the next four days are WAY cooler!

Way, way more postage about Dragon*Con coming soon. But first!

I slaved away for many, many hours on my Quinn dress for our Gaga Glee group. In the end I think I made a decent recreation, although nowhere near the vision that was in my head (isn't that always the way?). What I didn't realize until the end of con was that I had also inadvertently created a costume for an entirely different character:

ACCIDENTAL HYPERBOLE AND A HALF COSPLAY FOR THE WIN!!!

Home from Celebration V, which was ~AMAZING.~ I was working the Digital Stage and we had some awesome programming-- now I want to go back and watch Clone Wars, and TFU2 and TOR look amazing even though I don't game, and I got the TFU1 novelization at the 501st party, and WHERE IS THE TFU FIC!? I WANTS IT.

Ohgod so sleepy.

I'm posting a con report less than a week after the con ended? WHAT IS THIS CRAZINESS!?

So yeah! We went to WonderCon for the first time ever, yay! We've wanted to go for years but the timing just hasn't worked out. This year the timing was still not spectacular, what with it being Easter weekend and Baby Donut's birthday, but we'd committed to go and so we did, and I'm really glad we did because it was ~AWESOME.~

I wore four costumes this time: Yvaine, Penny from The Big Bang Theory, my Rebel cheerleader, and the Bowler from Mystery Men. (Our Masquerade skit this year was MM-themed and there were actually 8 of us dressed as identical Bowlers!) After Dragon*Con, having only one suitcase apiece seemed so...strange. We did, however, forget our camera, so most of the pics I'm linking to are Corli's; a few are Glenn's, and a few are Jess's husband Scott's. All the tiny pictures can be clicked to be embiggened.

Exhaustive details, many many pictures, and Masquerade video under the cut! )

And to close this post-- HUGE CRAZY MASSIVE THANKS to Corli for opening her home to us, driving us to and from the con every day, choreographing a fantastic and fun skit, and putting in so much work on the Bowler costumes. Now I have one, and I didn't have to do anything to get it! (You bet your ass we're bringing these to D*C this year!) Much love to all my fellow Mystery Men-- thanks for making our first WonderCon so great for us.

Whoops, *very* late posting this one. But this is the end, I swears!

Obsessive Sunday details, but much shorter than the other days' recaps )

D*C 2009 by the numbers:
4 days
8 costumes (2 orange!)
2 wigs
1 broken pair of shoes
8 panels attended
3 meals at Chick-Fil-A
2 autographs
3 LJ friends met for the first time IRL
2.5 parties
1 Thriller dance
and
a GAZILLION new friends!

Things to do next year:
- SLEEP the week before con! (ha)
- Watch DCTV while we're in the room
- Make a list of people I want to be sure I meet up with (and get their phone numbers)
- Remember to hand out my Moo cards!
- Spend more time working out makeup and hair for each costume
- Practice posing for the camera in each costume
