Back from Tennessee Comic Con and had a blast as my still WIP Seventh Doctor. Even picked up an Eighth Doctor version Sonic Screwdriver from a vendor who knocked off a few dollars because he really liked my outfit. I didn’t really need a sonic, but I wanted one because I like having sonics with Doctor cosplays. Yes, I know in the show Seventh went hands free but he had one before he regenerated in the TV movie and he uses one in novels and Big Finish audio plays so the play is legal. 

Got a ton of compliments and saw some awesome peeps. Even got to shake hands with Vernon Wells and because the turn out was small got to sit on stage with Tom Cook and get a virtually one on one panel with him. All in all good times.

‘When the fires when the fires have surrounded you

with the hounds of hell coming after you

I’ve got blood, I’ve got blood on my name

When the fires when the fires are consuming you

when your sacred stars won’t be guiding you

I’ve got blood, I’ve got blood on my name’

Blood on My Name by The Brothers Bright

First thing I’ve seriously drawn besides doodles in a while, like since October last year I think. I had fun with it and this song basically gave me the idea, I reckon it fits Nick. Also Hawaiian shirts are a pain in the ass to draw please let him update his wardrobe Cherise haha

Nick’s going Malachai oh noooooo

CREATING PEOPLE IS A CON

IT’S THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD AND ALL THAT SHIT. SOME FUCKER SHOWS UP CALLED CON. HE CLAIMS TO BE THE SON OF THE SUN. SINCE THERE ARE NO FUCKING PEOPLE YET, WE DON’T HAVE A FUCKING CLUE WHO HE IS BRAGGING TO.

ANYWAY, CON FIXES UP THE LAND AND MAKES EVERYTHING NICE, THEN ADDS SOME PEOPLE. VERY QUICKLY CON GETS BORED OF THESE PEOPLE AND FUCKS UP THEIR PERFECT LITTLE WORLD. THIS IS JUST LIKE ALL THAT SADISTIC SHIT YOU’VE DONE ON THE SIMS. 

CON TURNS THE NICE FERTILE LAND TO SHIT AND STOPS THE RAIN. HE’S NOT 100% A FUCKTRUMPET THOUGH, HE GIVES THEM SOME RIVERS TO WATER THEIR CROPS WITH. WHAT A FUCKING DELIGHTFUL GESTURE. 

THEN THE ACTUAL CREATOR GOD AND SON OF THE SUN AND MOON SHOWS UP AND IT’S SUPER AWKWARD. HE’S CALLED PACHACAMAC, WHICH IS SLIGHTLY LESS SNAPPY THAN CON, AND HE TELLS CON TO FUCK OFF AND TURNS HIS POOR TORTURED PEOPLE INTO MONKEYS. THAT SOUNDS LIKE A PRETTY DICK MOVE FROM SOMEONE CLAIMING TO BE THE NICE GUY OF THE STORY.

PACHACAMAC MAKES THE WORLD SUPER FERTILE AND LOVELY AGAIN AND MAKES SOME NEW PEOPLE. PACHACAMAC’S ATTEMPTS AT MAKING PEOPLE ARE ALSO PRETTY FUCKED UP, BUT THAT’S A WHOLE OTHER STORY.

Dear convention attendees. Please DON’T “SHIP” OTHER CON ATTENDEES, that you literally do not know. Whether they’re in costumes or not. Real people are not your fanservice tools.

I’ve only been to a tiny local convention, and there are times I really want to cringe and just leave because of other con goers stepping past boundaries and making it not a fun time.

My friend and I are just standing next to each other and talking having a fun time together, looking at booths when a random 13-16yr old teen decided we were a great ‘yaoi couple’ or something and proceeded to follow us around and talk about their ships. There are a multitude of things wrong with this situation, please don’t have fun at other peoples expense.

This has been a P.S.A by: A person who doesn’t really want to go to conventions anymore.

Tips For First Time Con-goers.

Have a necessity bag.This can be for your personal health and for emergency cosplay fixing. What I suggest having in it are these:

+Black & White Thread. If you have certain other colors then bring those if you NEED them. Black for darker materials and white for lighter. You don’t want to be carrying a rainbow arsenal of thread.

+DEODORANT. People stink, don’t be one of the people that smells an anal gland. There are going to be some of those. Don’t be one of those people.

+NOT PERFUME/COLOGNEPerfume on dirty skin smells worse and some people may have allergies so your best bet is to shower EACH day and to wear deodorant.

+A Snack. People always forget to eat at conventions because you’re on such a tight schedule with panels and cosplay meet ups. Fucking eat something. You’ll get sick. Have a sandwich or pretzels or anything in your bag.

+Water. Same as above.

+Hand Sanitizer, Wet Wipes, etc. You’re bound to touch something gross, get something on your cosplay, someone might touch you and they could be one of the fore mentioned people who don’t believe in showering at fucking conventions.

+Back Up Flat Shoes. Your 6″ heels for your cat woman cosplay are going to hurt after walking through the merchant hall. Have back ups. Be kind to your feet.

+Chargers.You’re going to want to take photos. Don’t leave your charger at home a state away.

+Touch up Make Up. You’re going to smudge.

These are the bare necessities that I know of. If you have more add them.

ANOTHER BIG TIP.
Have a bland bag. Something that won’t stick out. A dark color with no buttons or stickers or anything that yells “STEAL ME” on it. Conventions are sadly high priority for pick pockets so keep your bag close to you and make sure to not have a flashy one.

Side Notes
+Don’t be a dick.
+Know you don’t have to deal with someone being a dick.
+If you feel someone is following you tell con staff or con security.
+If someone makes you feel uncomfortable you don’t have to be polite and keep talking to them. Tell them to go away and if they don’t, tell con staff/security.
+If someone asks to take any photos you are uncomfortable with say no. If they take one without your consent tell con staff/security.
+If someone asks to go to your hotel room with you and you do not know them personally, you said you were going to just hang out at the con or met online, say no. You don’t know this person.
+If you see someone steal something, report them.
+If you see someone harassing someone, don’t try and intervene directly. Go get convention staff/security right away. You don’t  know how bad this person will react to you standing up to them.
+Take care of yourself while away. Time goes by fast but remember to eat, drink, SHOWER, and sleep. know the rule 6-2-1. 6 hours of sleep a day, 2 meals a day, and one shower a day AT LEAST.

Last but not least, ENJOY YOURSELF. Make new friends! Have a good time! 
You deserve it!

What's a depressing thought is that 75% of us will never get to even see/meet Norman in person because we live somewhere he would never come and we can't afford to go to the nearest con he's at... What do you think? Are you in this majority?

I personally think this is quite a gloomy way to think about the possibility of meeting Norman. I will agree, however, that he does go to popular cons and that makes it harder for people to attend and his fees for things like autographs and photo ops have gone up since TWD has become such a popular show. Still, I think it’s important to have hope … and to keep your eyes open! Norman (and other cast members) still attend smaller cons sometimes. I met Norman at the HorrorHounds Con in Ohio and it was a smaller con held in a tiny convention center! It’s all a matter of timing, my darling. 

Granted, I found out that Norman was attending HorrorHounds around a month before the convention so I had time to still purchase a photo op but if you keep track of the convention circuit, the cast will (hopefully) come close enough to where each of you lovelies that follow this blog will get the chance to meet Norman. It truly is an awesome experience and just please don’t be disappointed in Norman for not attending a convention closer because while he has a say in some things, his manager and AMC likely make him attend certain conventions (Like SDCC obviously and the Wizard World Cons, etc)

At any rate, I totally understand your point because it seems like that Norman, and the rest of the cast, has gotten so extremely popular that they only attend the most popular and expensive cons but that’s unfortunately what tends to happen when a show gets as popular as TWD is. That said, none of you should write off the idea of meeting Norman because it can happen!

So I feel like I wasn’t very helpful at all, but that’s how I feel. I think it’s important to ‘keep the faith’ that you’ll get to meet Norman at some point xx
