Out of duty to do a journal rather than actually having the will to do one.
GCNova was last weekend. I'm stuffed! Saturday I did Ty Lee (ember island players version) with 4 friends. Hardly anyone recognised me sadly (even though its really just normal ty lee with a tutu instead of skirt thingy). Even other avatar cosplayer who i greeted when we walked past just kind of kept walking. Don't know if that reflects on their lack of bother, lack of etiquette or lack of avatar knowledge. But the cosplay comp made up for them anyway
Lucy (our Katara) had written an awesome skit that was so stupidly funny, it went down pretty well with the audience
Pretty good with the judges too, I guess, since we won best group in the daily comp. Doing an ember island player group was one of my dream groups, so I'm so happy i got to do it with my friends, and have a truckload of fun.
Sunday I wore Ma Chao again (Dynasty Warriors 7), since hardly anyone got to see him at Brisbane Supanova (due to heat, competition and general exhaustion). I made 5 extra weapons for it, because I'm a bit obsessed with making weapons, and DW has some crackers. I did a skit in the daily comp, just sparring with the weapons (aka dying while swinging them madly), and somehow won the best cosplay in advanced
Wow i died from heat and heavy costume. My shoulders and forehead still hurt, two days later.
So great meeting lots of cosplayers at GCNova
And seeing Tess and Nai win the GC round of MNCC with stunning costumes. OMG they were sooooo pretty. Muchos touchies.
Now I have to get onto Sydney Supanova costumes, and WCS costume
scary! I've already started a bit on the weapons (because of course there are weapons). And just need to finalise my sydnova choices (looking like either Adult Toph or Kya (from Korra - depending on how much time i have), and Fitz from Robin Hobb's books (probably from the cover of the new book coming out). Brisnova plans are still incredibly loose at the moment. At the moment thinking of doing a Final Fantasy X group, and doing Auron, because I will look nothing like him, but he's my fav
and big weapon, of course
