Pictures from SVScon 2014

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a lot of pictures myself this year, so I might update if I can get into contact with some of the other people who took pictures of my costume! Feel free to comment on this post if you have any I can use.

Read about SVScon 2014 here.

May I present to you: Alexstrasza the Dragonqueen.
She looks pissed…

SVScon 2014 – Hour of the Dragonqueen

Phew!

I have been to a lot of conventions, but never have I been so busy at one before.

It’s Sunday, I just got home from SVScon and have finished unloading the car. Unpacking can wait ’till tomorrow.

…Or next month.

I have started to understand that cosplay is not a hobby, it’s a way of life. I have been photographed, filmed and questioned, all while not even being able to bend my arms enough to pull wig-hair out of my mouth. Luckily, I had lots of slave– eh, I mean friends to help me carry things and remove my glasses every time someone wanted a picture.

I’m never doing anything with wristguards again…

My time to prepare fo Artist Alley was nearly non-existant, seeing as I spent so much time getting dressed and trying to find people to help me, as it was pretty hard to bend down and get books and posters out or into my suitcase.

But despite how impractical the costume was, I just got so excited by how many people recognized the character. I have been an avid World of Warcraft-fan for the last 9 years, but rarely get a chance to share my passion for Warcraft lore. It’s been too long since I truly embraced my inner geek, and I have barely had time to game, so dressing up as Alexstrasza the Dragonqueen really made me remember that I’m a geek at heart.

I really need to renew my WoW subscription. Which is good news for my readers, seeing as half of Resounding Echo was probably written while waiting for raids…

I’ll geek off for now. Pictures will be up later!
