I’m going to be at the St Alban’s Comic Convention on Sunday, guesting with Squad UK again. I’m taking Boomerang to fit the theme so I’ve minimal preparation to make, other than double checking tonight and tomorrow where all the elements are.
The shirt and scarf are freshly laundered, while the props SHOULD be in their usual places. The last couple of years have taught me however to assume nothing.
What I can look forward to though is the fun of catching up with people I’ve not seen since the end of May. I’ve been on a bit of a low and lack of inspiration when it comes to cosplay, so being able to just chat and compare notes and mess about with the talented people around me will do me a power of good.
I’ve also put my head above the parapet to volunteer to take part in a small panel about cosplay at the event – where I’ll be talking about body positivity and creativity among other things. I’ve even made some notes so I won’t be totally winging it. (I will be totally winging it).
So, that’s about to happen… I may even post my notes after the event and comment about what I actually say in comparison.
