This past year has been full of conventions, from fandom specific ones such as Eternal Twilight in February, to ones covering multiple fandoms like London Film and Comic in July – which is the biggest one I’ve attended so far. Honestly, I think I’ve found a new hobby and have a few more conventions planned this year: Another Eternal Twilight (which is a Twilight convention), Memorabilia Show Winter and, of course, Hallowhedon 2 (a Buffy / Angel / Firefly convention).
Hallowhedon 2 – cosplay plans
If you read my last post about Hallowhedon you’ll know there’s a themed party each night. Friday and Sunday are centered around one of Joss Whedon’s shows and a Halloween party is held on the Saturday. Last year I went as a Lornette on the Friday (for the Tropicana Party) and a Witch on the Saturday.
I had a great experience cosplaying as a Lornette and have decided to do more cosplay in future. With the party themes for Hallowhedon 2 being announced this week, I have some planning to do! Friday night is a Buffy initiative theme party and Saturday will be their Halloween party night. We’re unable to stay for the Sunday night party.
So, Initiative theme… Army girl? Scientist? Demon? Choices, choices… Suggestions are encouraged! But in all honestly I’ll probably be ‘generic army girl’, haha.
For the Halloween party however, I’ve decided to cosplay as Kaylee Frye from Joss Whedon’s Firefly. My costume is going well; my parents found a good match for Kaylee’s overalls at the South Cerney steam rally earlier this year and I’ve found some of the patches, except one – Kaylee’s bear patch.
I’ve found a lot of USA sellers for the elusive bear patch but none in the UK, and I don’t want to risk getting slapped with customs charges for $6.00, so I’ll keep looking for now. I have time!
Any suggestions for bear patches like the one in the link would be great! 🙂
Have you ever been to a comic con (convention)? Are you going to Hallowhedon 2? Let me know in the comments.
