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!!

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.*
Last night I enjoyed another amazing Cosplay Karaoke Party with my friends of The Treasure Coast Cosplayers. Here are some of my favorite shots from the night!
I was also given one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received. One of my favorite people on this planet, Mike, got me a blue box (external hard drive) with a TARDIS on it and had another great friend of mine, Scott, to load it up with all the existing Classic Who episodes!!! I can not express just how much I love these two and how happy they made both of my hearts!
Ok, so, the night before MegaCon, the Treasure Coast Cosplayers celebrated one year of Cosplay Karaoke at my bar. To help make it a night to remember, I wanted to make some nerdy themed cupcakes. Luckily, one of my good friends is an extremely talented artist and baker and she was happy to help me. She taught me how to work with fondant and baked some truly amazing cupcakes. I was so proud of how they turned out!! I may have found a new crafty passion; I really got into working with the fondant!
Everyone, including Sarah and one of my favorite friends, Jo (pictured above) loved them! Since I’ve been posting gallery after gallery, here’s another one for you guys. Happy 1 year anniversary Treasure Coast Cosplayers! Cheers to more years of local cosplay (and karaoke) to come!
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.
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…
