Two Girls and an Owl

Owl Harry Potter

This Saturday brought along a lot of geekery. My costume-obsessed friend Simone had two Harry Potter-themed costumes lying around and I had an owl… Only logical conclusion was going to the park near Marselisborg(the Danish queen’s castle in Aarhus) and do a photoshoot!

Simone dressed up as Luna Lovegood, I as Hermione Granger, and my owl Artemis played the role of our mentally challenged post owl(you will understand later).

All pictures are taken by me or Skymone Cosplay.

I love Simone’s dreamy expression in this one. Totally Luna!

SVScon 2014 – Third Time’s the Charm!

SVScon with dragons

And so, the preparations have started for my third round of attending the Artist Alley at the Danish convention SVScon.

This year the convention will be 2.-4. May, providing another weekend of weird people in costumes and no sleep. I can barely wait!

You will be able to find me in Artist Alley both Friday and Saturday, but unfortunately I won’t have any exciting new book this year. But if you still haven’t gotten a copy of Resounding Echo or Silent Sound, I’ll have made sure to stock up on both, so come around! And if you already got your books, stop by anyway for a chat(I get awfully lonely if no one comes to visit me…).

Some of you might remember that I promised to dress up as a skimpy dragon for Genki, and I know I totally let you down on that one. Fortunately for you, I have had the cosplayer Skymone breathing down my neck to get me to finish the costume and this time it looks like it actually might happen! *Knock on wood*

If any of you play the MMORPG World of Warcraft, you might know the character I will be portraying. If all goes well, I will be dressing up as the dragon Alexstrasza and Skymone will be joining me as her sister Ysera. Of course, in proper online game manner, armor really doesn’t have to cover much on females. Funnily enough, it seems that the less it covers, the better protected you are!

If you don’t believe me, take a look at Alexstrasza’s game model.

So, yeah… I’m going to freeze my ass off.

Pictures from Genki

Picture time!

This time, I finally managed to get a lot of pictures at a convention and it was really hard to choose just a few to showcase on the website. Here goes!

If I have uploaded a picture of you and you wish it taken down, add a comment to the post or send me an email and it will be done immediately.

Little innocent me. With my stolen quill.

Book Signing With Quill

I got no pictures of me writing in people’s books, so Nina acted out this totally fake book signing for the sake of a photo.

Night Elf costume repair

Simone had some technical difficulties…

Costumes

Assassin Creed Cosplayer

Assassin’s Creed Guy! I can’t remember what character he is, but I’m pretty sure I got the game right.

Cosplay Fight

Assassin’s Creed Guy versus Harley Quinn and a Night Elf druid…

Nina and Simone stole my camera… I really have no idea who this guy is.

Cosplay Dress

Not sure if this is a specific character, but the dress is gorgeous!

Fun and Super Glue:

Genki, Night Elves and Defenestration

Genki Artist Alley

It’s Sunday and Genki has come and gone. I’m dead tired, but as usual I had a great time participating in Artist Alley, even if my friends managed to get me covered in super glue. Again. Seriously, guys!

I’ve been to quite a few of these conventions by now, three times as an author promoting my books, and I have got to know a lot of new people, so I met many familiar faces and made even more friends this time around. I was there with my friends Simone and Nina, both of whom are way better at promoting me than I am. Simone is the born saleswoman and if you don’t believe me, take a look at the post I’ll be putting up later.

Apparently, everybody is better at selling books than I am… Earlier today, a random guy came around my table and started promoting my books to passerbys. His only request was that I threw someone out a window in my next book. How could I say no?

Since it was a J-Pop convention, there was a lot of focus on costumes as well. Simone is a great cosplayer (see her Facebook page Skymone Cosplay) and she was wearing her Night Elf(World of Warcraft) costume during Saturday. However, she had some technical difficulties and apparently, my table was the best place to fix various broken armour items. Hence the super glue episode…

She looked great, though, and people was falling over themselves to take pictures of her. Check out the picture post to see some of the great shots!

All in all, I had a great weekend and even though I long to relax, I can’t really wait to sort through some of the pictures so I can post them here!

If you were at Genki, please throw me a comment on this post! Did you come and chat with me or do you have a funny convention story you want to share? Don’t be shy!
