I spent Friday attending
professional panels for the comics industry, which probably deserves a
post of its own, but I don’t think anyone is interested in me talking
shop. But Saturday was devoted to Agents of SHIELD stuff with
Iain and Liz. I had an amazing time and so many awesome things happened. Truly it was the best con experience I’ve ever had and, as @bigfunnywords (HEY Tumblr finally let me tag you!) said, I lived my best life. I’ll try to do the tl;dr version but this will probably get long.
Putting the rest behind a cut for your scrolling convenience.
New Ecthelion of the Fountain photos from C2E2! Sadly I didn’t have any of my Silmarillion buddies in costume that day, but I never get to wear this costume and I finally got a new wig, so I figured why not XD I was surprised I actually got stopped a fair few times just because people thought it was pretty even though nobody had any idea who I was.
On that note, I think I can finally call this costume done? XD I’ve been wearing it in various states of unfinished since fall but I don’t think I need to do anymore to it, and it actually ended up being one of my favorites. The design is mine, and everything is handmade besides the clasps/jewelry and boots. Patterns are either created from scratch or modified from existing ones, and the decoration is a mix of machine and hand embroidery with a teeny bit of hand beading. I did do a teeny bit of photoshopping on my eyes since I’m not sure what happened to my contacts. XD
