REPEAT OUTFIT ALERT! for shame…wearing the exact same outfit twice…hahaha! another all-white outfit from this past weekend. i’m definitely favoring the trend, huh? well, it was boston comic con a couple of days ago & couldn’t pass up another chance to cosplay as my favorite kill bill assassin…o-ren ishii :) which by the way…those of you at boston comic con who didn’t know who i was, (or even thought i was princess leia…the hell???) ya’ll need your nerd card revoked :p
my favorite part of boston comic con was being able to sit in on the panel of yaya han…famed professional cosplayer who has been making her own costumes, competing in contests & appearing at different conventions like this for over 14 years. after her talk, it was great to chat & take photos with her at her signing booth. she is sooooo teeny tiny…& that’s coming from someone as teeny & tiny as me :) she was super adorable, very sweet & she even instagrammed a photo of us as well. i was ecstatic!
other than the usual costumed freaks, it was kind of just the normal comic con i’m used to these days. i had never been to boston comic con before (i know right?) & i was pleasantly surprised at how busy it was. maybe *too* busy. i didn’t realize i had to register for the costume contest early as they were already at capacity & had capped the number of entrants way earlier on in the day. boo hoo! oh well, MDH was able to attend the panel of one of our favorite comic book artists, mike mignola of hellboy fame & even got an original sketch of his from the comic art auction. all in all, not a bad first time at boston comic con. maybe next year, i’ll remember to sign up for the costume contest ahead of time…but only if yaya han comes back to host it again!
