Kate Crate – Unboxing

This is a really special post for me. I want to share with you guys an unboxing video of the FIRST EVER in the history of ever KATE CRATE!! One of my good friends, Fourth Doctor Cosplayer and my MegaCon buddy, Chris was thoughtful enough to create a personalized Kate Crate and send it my way. His one condition was that I film an unboxing video so, of course, I complied.

I’ve been experiencing kind of a rough time recently and a very special select few of my friends have been in my corner and helping me through. Receiving this Kate Crate is a really important moment of light during a pretty dark period for me. I cannot say “Thank you!” enough, Chris for doing this for me!

Now that I have received my Kate Crate, I am on a mission to put together a pretty fantastic Chris Crate to send in return! And, who knows? Maybe this Kate Crate/Chris Crate will become a “thing” and I’ll get to share with you guys future videos about them!!

Thanks for reading! If you don’t already, please subscribe. You can also see what kind of nerdy fun I’m getting into on my cosplay page on Facebook: GingerKate Cosplay. You can also (and I would so very much appreciate it if you would) follow me on Instagram @gkcosplay (I’m also @gingerkate). I have links to all that great stuff on the side bar so please show me some love and support and I will always return the favor in kind. I hope you guys enjoy my Kate Crate Unboxing video… It turned into kind of a long one but I was having too much fun blabbering on about all the items and some other random thoughts that popped into my brain and immediately out of my mouth while filming.

*And, yeah… before any of you call me out… I refer to a White Walker (from Game of Thrones) as an Ice Warrior (from Doctor Who)… deal with it.*

Thanks again for reading and watching!

Love, GK

Treasure Coast Comic Con ’15

This past weekend was the very first Treasure Coast Comic Con! In anticipation of this local con, earlier this year, the Treasure Coast Cosplayers formed. Since the groups creation, we’ve grown to include hundreds of cosplayers and con enthusiasts from the Treasure Coast and surrounding areas. We make up excuses to cosplay and hang out and we always have a fun time! TCC showed up and showed out at TCCC ’15 and I’m so proud to be apart of that! Here’s a bit of my TCCC 2015 experience.

Day 1

My best friend Kacie and I attended Saturday as Poison Ivy & Harley Quinn. We got to snap pics with our mini-me’s. (I gotta tell you, this little girl made me feel like a Disney Princess the way she hugged me!)

We spent most of the day hanging with other TCC members. (I even got to meet a local 10!)

Day 2

Sunday was quieter all around. About half as many attendees over all but we still had a pretty large TCC group in attendance.

I met Iron Man and hung out with fellow Whovians.

But the most exciting part of the day was that the promoters for the event asked our group if we would take a picture with all of the celebrity guests in attendance! It was awesome!

The weekend was a complete success for me! I got to play with the TARDIS both days and I was proud of the two cosplays I worked hard making: Poison Ivy and The Doctor (10th, Brown Suit)

Free Comic Book Day 2015

Today is free comic book day!

Dressed as Chuckie Finster, I hit up two of my local shops and hung out with other CBD folks. It was the perfect excuse for the new cosplay group I’m apart of to get together and enjoy time with new friends. In addition to the comic shops, we also stopped in on a new costume and prop shop in our area. It really was quite the awesome day!

Thanks for reading!

MegaCon 2015!

Today, Sarah, Brooke and I made our way up to Orlando where we ran amok with more of our kind at MegaCon 2015. My only regret was that we were only able to attend on Sunday; I would’ve loved to spend the entire weekend (there’s always next year!)

The day was packed with a lot of running around the convention center, waiting in lines for events and bonding with fellow nerds, particularly Whovians. And there was a lot of Doctor Who love around. For a while, Sarah and I hung out and posed for photos with a large group of Doctors. It was the precise type of experience I was looking forward to having with my nerdy comrades. So many thanks to our “handler” Brooke for holding all our stuff and snapping pics!

I even ran into my 10 counterpart, the best damn River Song I’ve ever seen and a pretty dapper Captain Jack Harkness.

Four shared his Jelly Babies with me, this Dalek may have been one of my favorite parts of the day and please check out that War Doctor… right?

Our Sunday was mostly Doctor Who oriented. First stop of the day was our photo meet & greet with Karen Gillan. We played with other Whovians throughout the day and before ending our MegaCon Sunday on the floor, we attended the Doctor Who panel with Karen Gillan and Alex Kingston.

…it is so not typical that I am the shortest girl in a picture (nobody wearing heels…)

The three of us made sure we got plenty of Star Wars dorking-out in also when we visited the 501st Legion.

2016, I’d like to spend the entire weekend at MegaCon, especially since they’re adding a fourth day! The only damper on the day was that our Mom was there with us. She got so jazzed about Norman Reeds attending and purchased multiple passes to meet him and about a week before the con, it was announced that his Sunday appearances would be cancelled. Mom was so disappointed she opted not to attend at all.

Thanks for reading! I’d love to hear about your MegaCon 2015 experiences!
