Yesterday, my whole family went to the Emerald City Comicon over in Seattle. My feet are screaming at me today, but we had a great time. A definite highlight was sitting in on a Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy, for those who don’t know him) interview/question and answer hour. Well, that AND the fabulous cosplayers. I enjoy that the most (you can see our photos from last year here).
EMERALD CITY COMICON
King Fergus and Queen Eleanor (AKA me and my husband).
This is the only photo we got as a family, and sadly, we were headed home, exhausted.
My Falafel spied Belatrix and Luna Lovegood, and had to have a photo with them. Super nice Mom and daughter. LOVE that people get into character when you ask for a photograph.
Uruk-Hai statue at the Weta Workshop booth. It is amazingly huge.
Curvy Catwoman. Rawr.
My husband and I were geeking out over these two. Hellboy 2 is one of my favorites, and they did a great job with the costumes.
Merida, meet….uh, Merida.
Moana was one of the sweetest women, and she gave my Falafel a green “heart” as a present for posing with her. She was handing these out to kids , and telling them to take care of the Heart of Te Fiti for her. My girl was THRILLED.
Super tiny-waisted Poison Ivy. Even with a run in her stockings, she looked FABULOUS.
Me and my Bee (The Queen and Merida).

This was another highlight. These guys are still rock-stars to me. LOVE the Weta workshop team. I was a little tongue-tied and star-struck. The convention is a little bit of a sensory overload, and I have such trouble focusing. Nothing like thousands of people to throw off my concentration. He, on the other hand, was incredibly nice and seemed right at home.
I don’t have a seperate post for my costume because I finished it right before we went (um, like the night before). That dress was a beast to make. I used a Simplicity costume pattern, that I had to muslin the heck out of. The pattern pieces didn’t even resemble the originals after I was done. The wig is actually two wigs. I cut up a black wig to add some length to the brown one. Not being a fan of wigs (I find them cumbersome and itchy), I am glad I don’t need to wear it anymore, but glad it did the trick for my costume.
We were stopped quite a bit for photos, so if you happen to see any on social media, please let me know!
