What I Wore and Convention Madness
I'll start this off with the first chunk of the 30 day "What I Wore" challenge... meme... thing.
Day 1 was me dressed for a presentation. I was nervous as all Hell, even though it was with a group.
I still can't tell if I screwed up or not.
Also, I love vests.
Day 2 was me being grumpy because it was Halloween, but I had class from 6-9PM and couldn't do anything fun.
We didn't even get trick or treaters.
That pink sweater is becoming my favorite Winter item though.
It's too big and really soft and lovely.
Day 3 was somewhat exhausting, but in a good way.
My household is one of introverts, so we aren't great at crowds or entertaining friends for long periods of time, even when we'd really like to do so.
This day was me entertaining a couple friends I hadn't seen in a long time, followed by going to a loud bar to meet two of my knight's old friends.
The outfit was dark jeans and a neat, oddly warm top with lots of sparkly things. I had to push up the sleeves because they are only 3/4 length and it was driving me crazy.
Day 4... Why did I look so unhappy?
I had my gore pants on... Invader Zim shirt... Comfy hoodie...
I remember. Headache. Headache and utter fear of my then upcoming half hour solo presentation.
This entire semester has been utterly insane.
Day 5 involved a Batgirl shirt and plaid pants that were given to me when a friend hit puberty and couldn't fit in them anymore. Conveniently, I'm about the size of a child.
No shoes because screw it.
Day 6 during the day was just jeans and a black tee, since I was going to be meeting with my advisor at some point. She had a puppy in the room because he was training to be a therapy dog. Also, my advisor is really nice and helpful, which is new for me.
The hanging pants are my workout pants. ...Actually, I reversed the color of them somehow. (Shows how often I actually workout...)
Hitting the gym as though I’m healthy! Yay!
Day 7 was drawn really super tiny before it was scanned in. I have no excuse for this fact.
Trigun shirt and blue jeans.
Day 8! Again, full of angst.
Again, angsty because of the half hour presentation.
On the bright side, that sweater is comfy.
Day 9 was presentation day. I was terrified, but I did my best to pretend I wasn't. The teacher had a lot of discussion points and I'm still not sure if that was a good sign or a bad one.
Was she trying to correct me? It was mostly clarification purposes... Was I not clear?
Does she just respect me enough to want a discourse?
Am I going to fail?
Day 10 and the drawing looks nothing like the actual top.
The top is silky and has red, grey, and pink flowers, but it's much less simplistic.
It ties in the back and the grey part over the cleavage is a separate under shirt, needed for obvious reasons.
The choker necklace has the sign for Scorpio.
My clutch there is awesome because it not only has my cards, cash, whatever, but it also fits my epi-pen and chapstick.
...The epi-pen is a little more important than the chapstick.
Day 11 was a day I did not leave the house. At all.
Wore my “Cry baby” shirt and drank tea from one of my tiki mugs.
My chair (from my knight's sister) is actually much more awesome than what I drew.
Aaaand day 12, which was today.
Again, I'll be doing this for 30 days, but I figured I'd stop and do a post here because today was a convention and I wanted to mention that I went.
The comic I worked on wasn't quite ready to show yet, but it'll be at the next one!
Here, I'm dressed as Cassie Hack from Hack/Slash.
My knight was dressed as Vlad, so he bought a plain mask, I built Vlad's mask on top of it...
and then my knight painted it.
That's my lap.
We didn't stay long at at this convention just because the three of us (the other one was Deadpool, by the way) were all kind of peopled out by the time we got there.
Still, we saw some friends, looked at a lot of stuff, and managed not to buy anything.
I also learned that in or out of costume I'm terrible at recognizing anyone I know.
I can tell what character he or she may be dressed as, but I won't know where I know the person him or herself from, let alone his or her name.
I'm memorable, as are the other two of this household, so this can be an issue.
Last time we went to this convention was memorable due to 11 leftover House of the Dead credits someone had walked away from while playing.
Knight and I took over.
Turns out that my aim isn't bad, but I'll automatically shoot anything that moves.
As I result I one shot...
...two of the scientists.
BUT I killed a lot of zombies too.
Greater good and all that, right?
