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!
After sharing my recent Tenth Doctor photo shoot with you guys yesterday, I’d like to share another recent photo shoot! Mitch Kloorfain, a good friend and photographer, did a fun shoot with me and my friend and fellow Treasure Coast Cosplayer, Lazaro (IG: @cosplay_in_the_usa). I rocked the Harley Quinn costume I had made for my friend for last year’s Treasure Coast Comic Con and I added/subtracted a few of the details to make it more “me”; Lazaro was a fantastic Joker, as he always is.
March 5th & 6th, I participated in a one-of-a-kind Creep Walk with some of my Treasure Coast Cosplayers buddies at the inaugural Treasure Coast Freak Show 2015 Horror Con. Balthazar’s Band of Beauties is an original idea invented by one of my best friends, Steve (President and founder of The Treasure Coast Cosplayers). Back in October (during my blog sabbatical), we first brought this gruesome side show to life at our Halloween party. After that, the Horror Con organizers and promoters asked us if we would make a larger version as featured entertainment at Treasure Coast Freak Show. We were stoked. The original Band of Beauties only included a few of us, so this time around, we brought together more than double the amount of characters. All of us created our stories, costumes, makeup and sets. It was a group effort that showcased all of our individual talents and passions. It was truly an awesome experience!
We were quite the hit and the focus of lots of the media coverage for the con. We were even asked to give a private show to all the celebrity guests! Here’s a look at some of the fantastic photos a couple of truly talented photojournalists, Christopher Arnold and Molly Bartels, captured over the weekend.
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…
