MegaCon Orlando 2016 – Friday

IMG_7284

I’m finally getting around to posting about my weekend at MegaCon Orlando 2016! I have to specify “Orlando” because, as of this year, there will be MegaCon Tampa! And who is the #1 beautiful face on the poster advertising the inaugural year for this con?! DAVID TENNANT! Be still my heart and may my pockets be plentiful because I am absolutely attending, absolutely meeting David, absolutely paying for the photo op, I’M DOING IT ALL!! I HAVE to…

But that’s not until October. Let’s focus on the now… or the then… when “then” was last weekend… you get the point.

Friday, my sister and I attended as, yep, the Tenth Doctor and Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, yadda yadda yadda, Daenerys from Game of Thrones. Sarah was quite the fan-favorite and I acted as handler for her a lot throughout the day. Of course, there was plenty of Whovian love abound and I got to meet some really fun people! We also met up with a good friend of ours and 4th Doctor cosplayer, Chris. I had such a blast!

Early in the day we attended the Phelps Twins’ (Fred and George Weasley) Q&A which was a lot of fun as expected. Later, we got to meet and take a photo with Billie Piper (Rose-mother f’ing-Tyler, people!) She was so nice and warm and welcoming that after our photo when Sarah and I were discussing just how cool and friendly she was, I totally cried… yep. She really is one of the nicest people I’ve ever paid to meet. I just want to get drunk with her and hang out; she seems like she’s be a blast to chill with.

Friday was a really fun day so here’s all my pictures from the day.

Thanks for reading! I’ll post about my MegaCon Saturday experience tomorrow!
Love, GK

Guess WHO’s Back?!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted! The past 6-7 months have been filled with a lot of really fun times, costuming & cosplaying and some pretty epic personal events. There’s also been some heart-breaking and traumatic shit that shook down; some of the key players in my life have been fired from set and some of the guest stars are now leading lads and ladies. I’ve had the good fortune of outlets and opportunities opening up all around me that allow me to do the things I love with people I love and I couldn’t be happier.

So, back to work!

As I play a pretty intense game of catch-up, I’m going to start with a post showcasing some photos a photographer friend of mine, Phil Gladys, recently took of one of my Tenth Doctor Cosplays! I’m so excited about these photos and I hope you’ll take a look!

Thanks for reading. You can look forward to lots of new material over the next several weeks!

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)
