Atomic Lollipop is coming up this weekend and I'm still a bit on the fence about my costume plans, but I'll just let the experiences that I have guide what I Cosplay and if I bother Cosplaying all weekend. I've never been to this con before so I'm not quite sure what the atmosphere is like.
As it stands, I'm planning to wear my Halloween summer dress on Friday. Gonna hopefully get a shoot of the dress. I bought some cute candy corn themed shoes and the candy corn themed Arda wig last fall so I'm hoping all the elements will come together for a cute outfit. I know it's totally out of season, but it should be fun to wear.
My plan for Saturday is to re-wear my Tennis Princess Peach costume. I don't really have many photos of the costume from Anime North and I'm still waiting for shoot photos from SolarTempest so I'm hoping to do a shoot with Elemental at the con. Seems like a good choice for a summer event.
I'm not sure if I'll Cosplay on Sunday of the con. I'm debating about re-wearing my middle school uniform from Sailor Moon and this time Cosplaying as Amy. The Science Centre does seem like a good location for photos of the studious Sailor Scout. Pan and I would love to wear our Sailor Mars and Mercury costumes, but it would be too difficult to wear our fukus to a con where we can't change in a hotel room. I have a bunch of fun costumes like my Star Trek dress or the Batgirl dress that would be great to wear to this so I feel a bit overwhelmed with choices.
This is my last major event for the year. I may try to do some private photoshoots before fall. I would love to get some photos by a garden of Princess Peach and I desperately need photos of my China Sherry costume from RE6 as I never did a shoot of the costume. I don't really have nice photos to share here after debuting the costume at Anime North 2013. (^^);; I have a big list of costumes I would like to re-wear for proper shoots. I bought a new wig earlier this year for my Shinku costume from Rozen Maiden so at some point I would like to wear that costume again and I still have a Super Sailor Chibi Moon costume that I haven't worn yet either. XD I'll have to try to chip away at my costume photo backlog if I can find photographers to do private shoots with. I'll post here again as plans come together.
I am looking forward to checking out APOP this weekend. I haven't been to the Science Centre in a few years so it will be neat to see the exhibits and I'm sure it'll be a fun location for photos. There are a few con events and workshops that sound really cool so I'll definitely keep busy during the weekend.
As an aside, I did attend the Cosplay Picnic two weeks ago. It was a fun time on the island. It wasn't too hot and the weather cooperated, which was wonderful. I did wear the Snow White dress. I posted a photo here. I did a private shoot with Elemental and the previews on her camera that I saw were lovely so I'm super excited about those photos. It's always nice to Cosplay a Disney Princess, but I'm glad I brought a change of clothing so I didn't wear the full outfit to and from the event. Last time I wore my full Snow White dress to the island I had a blast, but I was swarmed no matter where I went by people wanting photos. It was very flattering, but very overwhelming. I learned a lesson for this time! (^^)
