Space Coast Comic Con ’15

This weekend The Treasure Coast Cosplayers hosted a booth at Space Coast Comic Con in Cape Canaveral. It was the first con that TCC was formally represented so we were all super excited about attending this con! I wasn’t able to attend on Day 1 but I did make the drive up on Day 2 with a couple of friends and members of TCC. I ended up making a last minute change in my cosplay plans (isn’t that always the way?) and decided to debut my Captain Jack Harkness!

I really need to get in the habit of taking more photos of my cosplays and with other cosplayers I meet at events… I did manage to snap a few.

Turns out, one of my good friends’ friend was also in attendance and representing another cosplay group a couple of booths down from us! One of my favorite things about attending cons is forming friendships with cosplayers from all. I also ran into an awesome Star Lord cosplayer who gave me some inspiration for the cosplay I’m working on for MegaCon 2016.

One of the activities guests could participate in when they stopped by the TCC booth was to share a less than pleasant experience in cosplaying for our #EndCosplayHate campaign. I shared a bit of what I experience often while cosplaying: I often cosplay male characters, like The Doctor or Capt. Jack and a lot of times people comment about my gender being opposite of the character… As if any of that nonsense matters when it comes to cosplaying. In fact, throughout the day, lots of other attendees mistook my cosplay as River Song… on account of the boobs… and the hair, I suppose.

SCCC was a small con (this may have even been it’s first year. I’m not entirely positive about that.) but it’s always a lot of fun to hang out and chat with other super fans of all fandoms and browse all the goodies I wish I was able to buy all of.

Gryffindor Cosplay for Karaoke

For this month’s Cosplay Karaoke party with TCC, I went with an easy cosplay of a Gryffindor… Since I am a Gryffindor, I have plenty of clothes and accessories to chose from. I was also wearing Hermione’s timer-turner necklace and wielding her wand so maybe this was a Hermione cosplay?

Anyway, we all had a blast and my friends are pretty damn cool.

Our after hours Dennys noshing seems to be becoming a ritual as well…

Loot Crate – Villains 2

After last month’s Heroes 2 box, why wouldn’t Loot Crate follow up with Villains 2. As a recent subscriber, I was happy to see what this box held since I wasn’t a subscriber for the original Villains box. Here is my monthly (shoddy) unboxing video.

Thanks for watching!

The Deftones & Incubus!

Last night, my best friend, Kacie, accompanied me to see The Deftones and Incubus in concert. I try and see Incubus anytime they are in the state… they are one of my absolute favorites!! We hung out with various friends we ran into down there and I sang and danced my adoring heart out the entire time.

I stole the picture of Brandon off some poor soul’s page on Instagram. I love hanging out in the lawn for shows but that doesn’t get me good pics so yeah, I totally stole this one. He’s just so beautiful…

It was a blast as always!
