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! )

So, who's still up for a Community paintball costume group at Dragon*Con?



Questions:

- If you had indicated interest earlier, are you still interested?
- Anyone want to take our open slots?
- When do we want to meet? Friday afternoon is looking open for me right now.

Here's the cast list so far:
Annie: [livejournal.com profile] jainamsolo
Britta: [livejournal.com profile] laughingmagpie?
Shirley: open
Jeff: [livejournal.com profile] sirrogue
Troy: open
Pierce: [livejournal.com profile] qui_gon_d (my dad)
Abed: [livejournal.com profile] rajsmith?
The Black Rider: [livejournal.com profile] hattermercury?
Giant Ice Cream Cone: [livejournal.com profile] princess_lesa?????
Dean Pelton, Leonard, Vicki the dancing saloon girl, Chang, Starburns, Fat Neil, Garrett, Quendra with a QU, Magnitude, anonymous paintball mooks: all open!

(I HAVE ANNIE'S BOOTS (yes that is a T not a B) AND THEY ARE AWESOME.)

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!!!

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:

- 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
