Texas Comicon was Awesome!

Sindel MK Day OffTexas Comicon was a few weeks ago, and I was only able to go on Saturday. I made it worth it, though! I haven’t been to Texas Comicon in 2 years, because the last time I went (2012) it was a total bust. This year they announced that Jake “the Snake” Roberts would be there, so we decided to go. Of course, now that we live right around the corner from the old venue, they moved to a new venue :/.
Sindel is in desperate need of repair, which I only just discovered 2 days before the con. I may have to rebuild her from scratch, so I went with a “Sindel’s day off” look. I was still recognized, so I’m content with that. It was pretty crowded at the convention, so it was actually nice to be dressed comfortably.
The con had an interesting setup. It was taking place in a mall, so many of the vendors were located in open access areas. They saved the best vendors, celebrities, and exclusives for paid only areas, though. The feature was Optimus Prime and Transformers, but the VIP line for that was insanely long, so I passed that up. Instead, I met Jake “the snake” Roberts! He signed my Pick Your Poison DVD and a glossy photo and I got to touch his WWE Hall of Fame ring! How cool is that?!

I got a lot of cosplay inspiration from the costume contest, and I wish I could’ve watched it from a spot that would allow for better pictures, but I’ll still share them with you all. My favorites were definitely Akasha (Queen of the Damned), Dart (Legend of Dragoon), and Black Waltz #2 (FFIX). Honorable mention goes to Rule 63 Bumblebee, because she went so far as to include cupholders, lol.

Texas Comicon is coming!

princess jasmineI don’t know how we are already the middle of June, but we are, and next week is approaching. This means two things. I will be turning 28, and Texas Comicon is upon me. My princess Jasmine cosplay is not even close to being finished! I may be forced to wear my Sindel again in celebration of the announcement of Mortal Kombat X coming in 2015. By the way, have you seen this yet?

Obviously, I can no longer put off investing in a PS4… but back to Jasmine….

princess jasmine cosplay progressI would just lock myself up with the sewing machine and knock it out, but life happens, and it will not be ignored. Wearing Sindel again would be a great chance to take some pictures, though. Last year, I spent so much time taking pictures of others at the comicon that I didn’t bother to get many pictures of my Sindel cosplay.

To be honest, I probably could finish Jasmine in time for comicon if I focus. I’ll just have to hope that this black wig and gold choker I ordered ship quickly. I will still have to style the wig once it arrives, and long wigs are so finicky! We’ll just ignore the fact that I’m not exactly in ideal midriff-baring shape for now. Con-goers aren’t supposed to care about that, right?

Will you be at Texas Comicon next week? Tell me who you’ll be cosplaying so I’ll know to look for you!

Thank you for reading!
