I am quivering with it.
For Emerald City Comicon.
It isn't for another few months but DAMN I am excited. I have finished compiling all the components for my Jean Grey Black Queen cosplay, it has taken me almost a year, I have a White Queen to cosplay with at the con, I have my tickets and my ride there and my place to stay in Seattle and I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE EXCITED FOR A CONVENTION. I finally have SERIOUS cosplayers to play with! I have been planning this since LAST ECCC!!! I have the PERFECT costume and I have spent the better part of a YEAR putting it together. I have put in the work.
It will be perfect.
I have tested the corset and panties and figured out how best to arrange myself in them. I have my cape, I just need a brooch for the clasp. I have my choker. I have my black opera gloves. I have test-run hair and makeup (hair involves building my own hair up and over a massive round pad made of an old nylon leg stuffed with the guts of a teddybear). The boots were delivered today. While I was at work. I am still at work. I am going crazy waiting to go home and try on this incredibly expensive boots I bought online.
The second I get home, I am going to messy-bun my hair and try on my full costume for the first time. It's still unfinished, but I have all the raw materials. I just have to put on my roses and build the brooch for my cape. I am legit going quite squirrelly because I'm separated from my new boots.
Pics to come, hopefully. Probably not until Wednesday, though. I want to have the first pics be of it fully done, with proper hair and makeup.
Love and kisses and I will see you all in March!
