So I found a really cheap wig that I couldn't pass up at the store and now that I have the wig, I feel that I must cosplay Amy. I'm not totally happy with the outfit but I want to do it haha. So I'll be Rose Friday and Amy on Saturday.

My friend just started watching Doctor Who and wants to cosplay either Rose or Donna but she hasn't decided yet. We're going to go thrift store shopping to put together a quick cosplay for her before Acen.

So I decided to put together the world's worst Jamie McCrimmon costume last night. I made a 10-minute sporran. I'm only going to wear it early on Friday just so I can have some clingytime pictures with Mikhail's Second Doctor. Still Romana for the shoot.

In other news, I finished all but a couple stitches on my Captain Kirk costume last night, so I'll be wearing that probably Saturday evening after the MGS shoot instead of doing my usual MGS stuff. I'm just feeling a bit MGS-ed out because there doesn't seem to be any excitement over the Metal Gear shoot this year.

You will definitely have to stop by Special Needs so I can see your Jamie! :D Also - do you want to borrow my sporran purse? I knitted one up for my femme!Jamie but you could probably make it work as a regular sporran if you have a belt :)

(oh and let your hubby know I'll be in my GB gear Thursday evening and possibly either Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon. I no longer have set times in the office, but I am determined to get some ghost hunting time in!)

It looks like we aren't going at all now. Our roommates for the trip bailed, and we can't afford the hotel by ourselves.

I don't do that. I've bad, bad, BAD experiences sharing with people I don't know. I don't want to repeat it.

It's final. I cancelled my room. I won't be seeing any of you at ACEN. Hope to meet some of you at Chicago TARDIS, though.

Hello everyone! I was one of the TARDISes on Saturday. Here are some of the photos I have from the photoshoot. (I dunno if you can see them because they're on my facebook, but feel free to add me and then you should be able to.) I have tons more photos that I will be uploading later. You guys were all lovely! Hope to see you next year!

Mine are up on Facebook, I'll be posting them to Flickr soon (it may take a while since I don't currently have a Pro account).

Friday photoshoot (not the whole shoot as I was running late, alas) I was the Ace that got there late.

Saturday shoot (I wasn't there, I had to be on shift, but I sent my camera with my friend's cousin)


I'm blown away by how many awesome Doctor Who cosplayers I saw all weekend long! Of course, I am in the Doctor Who department (we had a TARDIS on our badges :D ) It was great to meet those of you I did, and it makes me far too happy that there were SO MANY Fours!! I am a bit biased, since my fiance cosplays Four and we were dressed as Four & Romana when he proposed. But still - wow!

I had a fantastic time at the two shoots, though I ended up going as Rose both days. I just loved her cosplay so much. You were all awesome and I wish we could hang out and be that cool every day.

If anyone has pics of the Saturday shoot, specifically when Jack surprise made out with one of the 10th doctors, that would be an awesome thing to share. That 10 is my good friend and I want it. :D

My main cosplays have been Shinji Hirako (Bleach) and the 9th Doctor (Doctor Who).

Yay! Pictures of me! It has amazed me the last day or so, that people can go to a photo shoot, take a bazillion pictures and half the people aren't in a single one :P

ETA: Oh yeah, and you guys were wonderful. The LOZ photoshoots were never this fun ;)
