Hal-Con Wrap-Up

Guess who?
I apologize for the delay in posting about Hal-Con.  I've been busy with mid-terms and school work (just one more quiz and a final exam . . . ).  I have to confess that I worked overtime so that I'd be free to enjoy our weekend up in Halifax--all play and fun!  It was a blast! :D

First off, we had fun dressing up.  The boys loved playing their characters: Link from the Legend of Zelda games and Spider-man of course.
Link sticks it to Spider-man
And I had fun drerssing up as Princess Bubblegum from my current favourite show Adventure Time.
My Bombshell turned out great: good fit, comfortable and worked well as a costume.  Everything you see is made my me: made the crown, sewed the skirt and sash, and of course knitted the top.  Very pleased with the overall result.

Hal-Con always impresses me 'cuz there are great vendors, passionate fans and awesome cosplayers.  Check out some of the ones I mananged to photograph.

Cute couple
Cleia the fairy from Legend of Zelda
The cutest Ashoka from Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Awesome trio from 300
Fearsome group from Marvel
More superheroes
Best Kratos ever!
Best Aquawoman ever!
These are only a sample of the wonderful cosplayers we came across over the two days. As usual, we're already making plans for next year's Hal-Con festivities. ;)

Remembering . . .

We're travelling today, so we'll be remembering in our vehicle.  Hope you find the time for two minutes of silence.

Yup, ready for Hal Con next weekend.  We've all got our costumes finished and pressed.
Finished Bombshell with finished skirt
So here is my completed pink Bombshell complete with purple trim (inspired by Princess Bubblegum age 13).  I also made the skirt--simple straight skirt with elastic waist band (it was ironed AFTER the photo was taken, but rest assured I'll have proper photos next weekend with wig, makeup and appropriate props).
Check out those shoes!
Best part of my costume: the sparkly pink shoes!  I love these!  Not only are they cute, but they are soooo comfortable too.

We are all looking forward to the big get-away and sharing our cosplay with other fans.  Have a great week!
