Hey peoples! Man, it's been a real long time since I updated my journal.
Anyway! So a few weeks ago I attended Northwest Fan Fest. 'Twas a collaborative convention amalgamating Cos & Effect, Anime Evolution, and Vancouver Gaming Expo. It was a pretty huge event - possibly the biggest con I've ever been to. There I debuted my Dark Samus cosplay, and also entered it into the costume contest (didn't win anything, but didn't expect to, either, so it was all jolly good). It was such a painful and hard-to-manage cosplay (Yukibun
was basically tending to it all day [thanks so much agian!]) that I probably won't wear it again.
Sadly, I started late on Dark Samus, so I didn't have any time to create a second new cosplay as I'd planned, but oh well.
Big shoutout to my friends, tarorae
for being awesome at the convention as well. AnyaPanda
was especially fantastic, since she took the plunge and entered the costume contest for the first time! She's used to skit performances, so the crazy judging process made her a little nervous. But she made it though, as did I, and I'm pretty proud of her. So good tidings all 'round.
And as for the second part of this journal's title, this month marks the beginning of the "Year of Supergiant"
for me. This means I'll be building a high level of Supergiant Games cosplays - 3, in fact, starting with Red from Transistor. You may know this already, but my aforementioned friend and cosplay buddy Yukibun
will be modeling her for me. In addition, you'll be seeing me in a Bastion group this winter with myself as Zulf and tarorae
as Zia. Finally, later next summer I'm going as Royce Bracket in a pair with Red. So stay tuned for my first Transistor cosplay, coming next month!
Have a good day,
