TiCon - also known as the last German convention of 2012 - is over! I had a lot of fun there, met more friends and amazing people than I expected to meet and had a great photoshooting there! The location around the convention building is just incredibly beautiful! (Check out "Residenz Würzburg" on Google!) I'm so glad I decided to bring Belle. The weather could have been better though. It was overcast and bitterly cold all day. But it's November, so what did I expect..?
I already uploaded the first picture of the photoshoot a few days ago. I hope I can put up more tonight! ♥

All in all the past convention season has been a blast! I was able to attend so many different conventions in so many different countries and cities. I gathered experience with hosting workshops and panels and judging cosplay competitions. And I also got to know many amazing people from all over the world! I'm curious what 2013 will bring - 2012 will be very hard to top though! During the months of winter I will focus on writing my thesis and graduating from university. But...

➡ ... there are also a few costumes to work on, of course! I already have a couple of ideas and plans. The costumes I'm going to start working on next are:



► Princess Leia from Star Wars - Ep. IV: I started working on this costume in May 2012 already and stopped due to approaching deadlines and exams at university. Since the fabric I bought first simply doesn't look right I ordered new fabric which I received today. I really hope I can finish the dress and the belt this weekend. I am really excited to wear it! I grew up with the Star Wars trilogy and Leia was one of the main heroines of my childhood! Haha! I hope I can make her weapon as well! I should practise working with other materials besides fabric anyway!

► Margaery Tyrell from Game of Thrones: Many people told me that I looked more like Margaery than like Daenerys... and since I came to love Margaery and House Tyrell in the books I decided to go for one of her outfits as well! It will teach me a lot about embroidery and about the proper shaping of garments. I mean, look at that top... I'm excited about my brother joining me as Ser Loras too! Siblings cosplaying as actual siblings is just too cool!

► Lucrezia Borgia from The Borgias: Lucrezia is most likely one of the most challenging and most detailed costumes I have ever done. It'll be the first time for me to make a boned corsett as well. I'm going to wear this costume at Gala Nocturna in Belgium which is a costume ball with a very strict dress-code. Next year's topic is "The Pope's Daughter"!

Further costume ideas for 2013 are Astrid from "How to Train Your Dragon", Rapunzel from Disney's Tangled and Golden Glider from DC's The Flash. Conventions I'm planning to attend are London Super Comic Con in February, Gala Nocturna in Belgium in March, Animuc and Hanami in April, Kapow! Comic Convention, London MCM Expo and YOU! Berlin in May, Connichi in Kassel in September and - hopefully - New York Comic Con in October. Let's see to which conventions I can actually make it! Haha!

Genau! Seid ihr dort auch unterwegs?

Oh, also es ist wirklich sehr anders. xD Riesengroß.. unpersönlich. Aber das Angebot an Händlern, Merchandise und Künstlerartikeln ist schon klasse.

Vllt. kann ich Freikarten besorgen. Ich soll dafür sowieso noch Cosplayer motivieren.

Naja.. das ganze ist im London Excel-Center, ich würde euch also raten dort in der Nähe etwas zu suchen - und rechtzeitig. Mit günstig sieht's da aber eher schlecht aus.

I feel like I'm constantly in awe of your ability, and I'm super excited to see how these come out! DO you have a blog where you post your progress, or is this the best place for that?
