Hello my friends,
I was again cosplay guest in MEXICO CITY last December and here is my report!
The con was LA MOLE COMIC CON. The conventions I visit are usually more Anime/Manga oriented and it was my first experience with a more comic oriented convention. So I also did my first comic costume!
I have to say that those great cosplayers are really kind and totally down on earth! Many people think that "famous cosplayers" must be very stuck up and bitchy. But everybody was very social, no stuck up attitude or anything that people love to gossip about. All of them were very happy and social people :3...I was the only one who traveled alone to MX without company person, but those people really tried to took care for me and helped me during the con. Also many of them gave me some really useful advices how to handle "con business stuff" ;D. Thank you so much!
Our schedule was very simple:
Friday: standing at the booth
Saturday: standing at the booth, 1h Q&A Panel and judging.
Sunday: standing at the booth, judging
I am not used to spend my con time standing at a booth (It was the first time for me), but It seems that this is more the comic convention style that I still did not know. I had more fun walking around and watching&judging the cosplay competitions. But more about that later.
A big help at my booth was the most awesome translator and friend: Louis :3~ (Thank you SO much, man!).
He helped me selling my stuff ans translates for me when non-English-speaking-fans wanted to talk to me. Also I always had enough food and drinks *_*~~~!
Also many many comic book authors got invited as guests and you could meet them at their boothes, too.
(It was sometimes a bit strange to have a booth as big as the booth of a great, famous and professional comic book artist. I am just a hobby-sewer *laugh*~)
I sadly had noch much time to take photos of the cosplayers who walked around (I was busy at my booth ;O; )....so sorry that I cannot give you impressions of the costumes there. But I have to say that many were really awesome and outstanding.
I also really LOVED specially the Cosplay Group Competition with the Michael Jackson group (beyond epic!), the Game of Thrones group (totally in-character *_*) and the Hobbit group (THAT fighting scene ;D!). Also the winners of the solo competitions in MALE and FEMALE were totally stunning. Greetings here to the most awesoem Superman ever and my favorite who will be close to my heart now: Saver/Saber from Fate/Prototype *______*!
I also debuted my first comic book costume: Kitty Pryde / Shadowcat from X-Men!
I felt really different in a non-anime-character. I am not 100% confident with the costume but I think it looked okay. I still have to make a real shooting with it :3.
All in all I had a great time there together with everybody <3!
Thaks a lot to everybody who visited my booth, bought a poster, took photos with me, gave me presents and talked to me ;D!
Also thanks a lot to Louis for being the best translator ever!
Thanks to all my awesome Mexican friends (Sara, Jean, Blanca, Puchies) who spend their time with me, helped me with fabric shopping and spend my free days with me <3<3<3<3!!!!!
