Traveling With Cosplay

Your going on a trip aren’t you? This is going to teach you how to pack what you think cannot fit in that little carry-on into your little carry-on! For those of you that have to travel with cosplays you may have already realized what a pain in the butt it is and for those of you that haven’t, be lucky you haven’t. But don’t be caught off guard if you never have flown before!! I have found packing light to cons makes my life so much easier and nicer at con because there is so much less to worry about (and lose). As we all know cosplay is veeery expensive! And we all want to be able to save a little money, right? If you are flying on a flight that does not allow free checked luggage you want to think about fitting everything into a carry on. And even for those who can have a free bag you still may want to try taking your stuff with you so it is not searched through and damaged. I have heard of many instances of this happening with various cosplayer friends of mine, and you definitely do not want it to happen to you! The first rule of carry-ons is LIQUIDS! I cannot stress this rule enough. You have to follow the liquid/gel rules (no more than 3 oz in a 3 oz container that says it, everything fits in a quart size baggy) or you may have precious cosmetics/gels or other things taken from you by the one cranky TSA officer that day.

Post Con Clean Up and Prep

The con is over. No more singing the Pokemon theme song with random strangers. No more people asking to take pictures of that awesome costume you just finished the night before. No more waiting in line for an hour for that once in a lifetime glimpse of your favorite celebrity crush. Its back to reality: your boring job or school work, and your regular ol’ days of procrastinating finishing costumes another day. But you have that nagging feeling in the back of your head… there’s that giant bag of unpacked costumes in the dark corner of your room and scraps of fabric thread and other unmentionables thrown about your craft room. So what do you do!?!? Start with the easy stuff. The first thing is to clean up the mess. Putting away all of the wigs, clothes, makeup and stuff you brought with is the first priority. However be smart about it! Remember that you have to wash your wigs, hand wash any delicate clothes, and spot clean those corsets and bunny suits so make sure to set them aside for later. I usually get a laundry bin to set all of my hand washing things into so they can hang out there until I find some rainy day to spend the day washing! After cleaning your space up (and I don’t just mean your suit cases, clean the whole place up!) go back through all of the things you wore. Are there improvements that could be made? Did something not fit exactly how you wanted it to? Did that last minute hot glue hold up? Writing a list...
Changes to Website!!

Changes to Website!!

WARNING: You may experience some dizzying changes while my website is finally being updated! You should expect a website that actually works and has content! With some new pictures…ooo! You mean I won’t see a Cosplay page that says: “here is some text” anymore?? But I’ll miss it so much! I know that’s what you are thinking but be patient it will get better! I’ll be posting some tutorials, posts about upcoming cons and about my recent past conventions. Generally I’m kicking myself in the butt to get this site up and running (and did I mention awesome?).   Just because I’ll miss it OH SO MUCH ;_; I’m posting an ode to my last website….  ...
