I promised to update my journal more regularly - so here we go!
➡ I spent the past weekend at Calssara's in Ludwigshafen! On Saturday we attended Ring*Con 2012 in Bonn. Ring*Con is the biggest fantasy convention in Europe. They have plenty of guests every year. This year they had - sort of - focused on actors from the series Game of Thrones which I love... so I absolutely had to go there. We watched the panels of Miltos Yeromelou who plays Sirio Forel and Iain Glen who plays Ser Jorah Mormont in the series. We also watched a panel about the special effects of Game of Thrones which was really interesting.
Besides that we saw Finn Jones (Ser Loras Tyrell), Natalia Tena (Osha/Tonks [HP]), Joe Dempsie (Gendry) and Sean Astin (Samwise Gamgee [LotR]) and Billy Boyd (Peregrin Took [LotR]).
I also got an autograph of Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) and look what he wrote! "Moon of my life"! That's so cool! I'm also really happy about the way the picture with Iain Glen turned out! Ser Jorah is one of my favourite characters of the series and I was so excited to get a picture with him in my Daenerys costume! This was one of my highlights of the day! You can see a couple of pictures Bell took right HERE!
➡ As some of you might already know I will also attend MCM Expo in London in a couple of weeks! I'll arrive in London on Thursday and will do a little bit of sightseeing and shopping with a friend who'll go with me. I'm looking forward to seeing London again. It's such a beautiful city and I wish I could live there for a few months again.
Costume-vise I'm not 100% sure what to bring yet. Here's a rough draft of my costume schedule:
MCM Expo 2012; London (UK)
Saturday: Daenerys Targaryen [Qarth] from Game of Thrones
Sunday: The Spoiler [Stephanie Brown] from DC's Detective Comics
I'm currently working on Belle's blue dress from Disney's The Beauty and the Beast. In case that I'm able to finish it in time I'll most likely bring this costume to MCM Expo as well and wear it on Friday. What do you think?
Besides that is anybody else planning to go to MCM Expo? Let me know! I'd love to meet up with you!
➡ And just in case you haven't seen it yet: Please take a look at my first official video interview with CosLive TV I gave at GenkiCon 2012 in Denmark in August! Thanks a lot for having me! ♥
