so gearcon was fun back in early july. the photos are finally ready, which you can see below. for my very first steampunk convention, I had a lot of fun. my costume was mostly from older clothing I took apart and refashioned into something more steampunk/neo-Victorian. I will definitely be adding at least one steampunk convention to my line up of events to do in a year.

kumoricon is coming up very soon so I am in maid squad overdrive as I try to iron out the last of the details and getting the rest of my team up-to-date on convention policy and yojimbo training. this year is the first time I have had more veteran maid squad staff than newbies so I am feeling much better than previous years on how things will run this year. I am doing another kimono/hakama outfit for maid squad. this time I will be making the kimono and painting the design myself to reflect perfectly to kumoricon (clouds and autumn flowers on a navy blue fabric). I will also be hosting an obi tying workshop again, this time in two different sessions with 1.5 hours to teach kimono wearing cosplayers and enthusiasts.

the only curveball I have had so far is learning that the dark alice in wonderland ball is not in late September but in mid August... well crap, I haven't even begun making my outfit for that yet. I know what I want to do, but thought I could tackle that project after kumoricon was over. I will be doing my own version of the mad hatter with a more straightjacket type outfit and a really unconventional top hat... I was hoping to have the hat made by my friend jesse (midnight armor), but he's booked with a couple more conventions before he has the time to take on my commission for the hat. that means I will be attempting to make my own hat with some millinery supplies and a lot or trial and error.

photos from Gearcon are finally available. the set for the photobooth was awesome, especially the kraken in the live tank.

very happy with how my outfit turned out. the blouse was based on an old lace-mesh short-sleeved shirt that I took apart and remade to have long sleeves, different lace and collar. the skirt was from 3 goodwill bought skirts and a jacquard fabric and various notions I bought at joann. corset was one of my older goodies from www.corset-story.com/
