First off, I would like to welcome you to my blog :) This is a place where I will post about my beginner cosplay struggles/adventures as well as my hauls of makeup, gaming struggles and life in general!
So for my very first post, I’m talking about Supanova Sydney 2014 – my very first convention! It was so much fun and I can’t believe I didn’t go previous years :'( I was actually planning on stalking Nikolaj Coster-Waldau aka Jamie Lannister and taking selfies from afar (due to myself being too poor for his photos or autographs) but alas…all I saw was his poster showing where he was and a giant line of people in front of it.
Tears were had.
I only attended Saturday since I have uni finals coming up and was planning on studying the other days…but that obviously didn’t go as well as planned. But on the day, I cosplayed as Red Card Katarina with this HUGEEEE League of Legends group and I got to met so many talented cosplayers ahhhh it was crazy and everyone was so nice! The heat inside The Dome was unbearable at times because the heat that my wig was trapping was IMMENSE and just gave me a gigantic headache so I spent most of my time chilling outside. I didn’t get to catch some people I was anticipating seeing but overall it was still a great experience even though it was so crowded! Definately recommend if you are a fan of gaming, comics, anime, movies, pop culture in general! I can almost guarantee you will find someone that is cosplaying as something/someone that you are a fan of!
Some snapshots from the day! Sorry I don’t have that many because I didn’t want this post to be pic heavy ):
There are definitely alot more amazing cosplays that I haven’t put up on here but I’m sure if you look around then you will be able to find many more photos from the day! My next con will be SMASH Sydney that’s happening in August 9th-10th! I’m planning to do Human forms for the Pokemon Umbreon and Ninetails. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish making them on time and if I’m lucky then I might even be able to do a photo shoot with my friend before SMASH, so make sure to look out for me until then!
