I haven’t been doing anything interesting

Things have been kind of crazy in our house since December. We entered Katsu-crunch in January, and then Chris got sick. Really sick, needed his gallbladder out the week of Katsucon sick. Awesome. I worked on Mercy from Overwatch for almost all of January, and continued working on it right up until the day Chris… Continue reading I haven’t been doing anything interesting

Otakon Followup, and the other things we’ve been doing

I just realized that I haven’t made a post since August. Oops. When I’m not in Con Crunch my life is really not all that interesting. I go to work, I come home, and I play some video games. That’s pretty much the extent of the interesting. With that said here’s what happened at Otakon:… Continue reading Otakon Followup, and the other things we’ve been doing

Cosplay Safety

This is a PSA. There is an incredibly disturbing Facebook post going around the VA/DC convention scene right now. I can’t let this go. https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Flaura.williams.71619533%2Fposts%2F2129621680396780&width=500 This guy is a creep.

This is what the day/week before a convention looks like.

Today is the day before we leave for Otakon for the weekend. With all of our work on Charlie’s costume this weekend (which turned out really nice, and he only has to do some small detail work and paint it) we were left in kind of a time crunch to get our costumes done. Here’s… Continue reading This is what the day/week before a convention looks like.

Warhammer 8th Edition (That I won’t be playing, but being in the store made me buy paint), and other adventures in adulting. – I also forgot to actually post this last week. Whoops

I do things other than cosplay sometimes. Right now most of my costuming (minus the one for our friend) is on hold while we decide what to do about Otakon this year.  Chris found out he has to work that weekend, and he cannot get out of it. Boo. The room is booked and we… Continue reading Warhammer 8th Edition (That I won’t be playing, but being in the store made me buy paint), and other adventures in adulting. – I also forgot to actually post this last week. Whoops

I bought a 3d printed thing! Now what?

I thought long and hard about how I was going to do Soldier 76’s Rifle. I mocked up materials and drawings using stuff I could get my hands on and just could not find anything that would turn out really clean. I really wanted this prop to be weighty, clean, and recognizable. So after some… Continue reading I bought a 3d printed thing! Now what?
