Back! (with Madman 2011)

Long time no blog! I've had a severe lack of motivation, but after being greatly flattered by the fact that this blog still gets daily hits, I'm going to try and give it another go! So here's to 2012!

Though ironically, I'm going to start with the last con from 2011 - Madman/BrisNova2. It was my first year not competing in the finals, which was okay because it was also my birthday! I cosplayed one of my favourite things, Cirque du Soleil! Specifically, the White Singer from Alegría.

Our group all ready and just about to leave.


Making the White Singer was a lot of new challenges, and I knew I wouldn't be able to fully complete her for the con, but hopefully I'll get to make more Cirque costumes in the future.

I didn't take very many photos at the con this year, though there were a lot of amazing cosplayers (and celebrities!) around. I even got to have a photo with Evanna Lynch, and attend a few of the celebrity panels.

At the end of the day, Cathy and Lisa won Madman 2011, and are set to fly off to Japan soon! Their Okami skit (1:17) was amazing, and had so many wonderful aspects to it. They're definitely deserving winners.

AvCon 2010 - the quick round up.

Everyone should be arriving back home from Adelaide tonight, so I'd just like to thank everyone there for a really enjoyable con again, this year. I know I said I wasn't attending, which I was quite cut about. But until 1pm on the Saturday of the con, I really wasn't because I had no flight tickets! XD; I'm really sorry again for being so indecisive...but I definitely am glad I did the quick trip up there.

And the funeral of toast/toost (circled), which 'accidently' got left at the pancake restaurant. >_>

A fuller report of my entire 1 1/2 days of insanity should be up in a few days on LiveJournal.

Melbourne's Super Showdown for World Record

Melbourne's Federation Sqaure has been known as a lot of things: an eye sore, a meeting place, an art piece, a waste, and so on! Ask anyone in Melbourne and you'll get a different opinion. However, last week-end it transformed to become the home to 1,245 of Melbourne's finest caped, masked, buff-suited and super citizens, all in an attempt for World Record glory!

Unfortunately I wasn't there to aid the record, but definitely there to support as it busted the previous week-end's record that was set by 1,091 superheroes that swooped on Twickenham Stadium in London.

It looked like a great way to spend a morning with entire families (even dogs!) attending for show bags, competitions and photos with 'professional cosplayers' from Dreamworld on the Goldcoast! This was all in celebration for DC Comics' 75th Anniversary, and it's great to see that Melbourne can pull out the numbers when needed! It's been interesting Googling around and seeing that such costuming fun made it internationally, and even to India!

Back home, it's not hard to find little bits of snippits and fun photos by Seven, Nine, The Age and The Australian.
