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.

Yeah. It sucks. It's hard to live without the internet these days. Nobody calls you anymore or sends texts. You get all messages - even important information concerning university - via facebook. LOL.

Oh god PLEASE do the Golden Glider. Flash characters get so little love and some of her outfits are just fabulous. I love it when people give underrated characters like her love. Especially when they're awesome.

I think Golden Glider is one of the most beautiful female comic book characters EVER. I just hope I'll be able to do her justice!

No LBM or Dokomi? But hope I can see you in London more than once^^
Gala Nocturna looks so cool and I so wanna go but I've got no proper clothes and can't dance :(

Aigue-Marine Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
LBM is too far away and too expensive and Dokomi takes place the same weekend as Kapow! Comic Convention. :(

:icondarkagesun:
darkagesun Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Ah I forgot the clash with Kapow! Decision, decision...So you gonna stay in London for over a week for Kapow and MCM? Then plenty of time for shooting :D
I know Leipzig is far away from you, but still a bit closer than NY xD But I know what you mean :)
Reply
:iconaigue-marine:
Aigue-Marine Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well, that's my plan. I don't know if I'll have enough money to stay in London for a week though.
NY is cooler than Leipzig though. I have seen LBM once and - to be honest - it's nothing I need to see a second time.

If I'm still in London by then, you can crash in my place :) But the problem I don't even know when I leave London, all depends on my job, currently contract expires in March, but could extend to end of May, potentially.
I'm sure NY is more interesting, I'd love to there one day to have a look. If I'm not going to Dokomi, LBM could be my last German con :(

:iconaigue-marine:
Aigue-Marine Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh, please don't worry. :) I'll make sure I have a place to stay. I don't want to bother you, especially when you're leaving for Dokomi at one of these weekends.
Ooh! I see. :( That's a pity. Why is Leipzig so far away from where I live? D:

darkagesun Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I haven't planned out after April yet, all depends on when I finish work in London. If I can work till May, I'll probably go to Kapow! and MCM instead. Then maybe spend a month in Germany xD Anyway I'll let you know my plan is once I find out.

I guess Leipzig is far from you, but at least it's in your country^^ What am I gonna do after I go back to Australia? :(

:iconaigue-marine:
Aigue-Marine Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Aah! I see. Well, to be honest I cannot plan that much into the future either. I have no idea what I'm going to do after graduating from university, so...

Get Australian convention organizers to invite us to down-under! ;)
