DragonCon is over.
DragonCon was over like a month+ ago? I KNOW THAT. I was busy…I don’t know, doing something, probably. Working. Watching the BBC on DVD. Getting ready for the opening of the Carolina Renaissance Festival. I AM A BUSY PERSON, DON’T JUDGE ME.
Where do I even start with this wrap up? I guess with a quick review: our costumes went SUPER well.
Glad you dig it, Mr. Seal
We did almost all of our costuming on Sunday, which made for an exhausting but exhilarating day, and also meant I had an excuse to shower twice.
It was AMAZEBALLS. Allow me to show you more…
When the hour’s approaching to give it your best, and you’ve got to reach your prime
That’s when you need to put yourself to the test
and show us the passage of time
We’re gonna need a montage! Ooh, it takes a montage!
Show a lot of things happening at once
Remind everyone of what’s going on!
With every shot show a little improvement
To show it all would take too long
That’s called a montage!
Oooh, we want a montage!
In anything, if you want to go from just a beginner
to a pro
You need a montage! Even Rocky had a montage!
Always fade out in a montage…
If you fade out it seems like more time has passed in a montage…
Dragon*Con work has kicked into gear here in the biscasa*. stone biscuit, mr. biscuit, the bismates**–even the biskitties** are getting in on the action, though not in quite the way we hoped (i.e. they have not learned to stitch, glue, or pin, but instead continue to uselessly insinuate themselves into the laps of sewing persons).
There are two major projects going on in these pictures: Rococopunk and the Post-Apocalyptic Avengers. Also, a great deal of drinking. We’re hitting all of these piece-meal, except the drinking, to which we’re all strongly committed. Behold, a small sample of our recent successes!
Obviously, not all of these were made by me. I can lay no claim to the Scarlet Witch headpiece (done in a satellite office), the medals, nor the enormously well drawn pattern piece. My pattern pieces tend to look like they were done by a four year old.
We look forward to more progress, as well as more drinking. Always more drinking.

Some time ago I decided I had to sit down and finalize my Dragon*Con plans early this year, and then not add anything. I think I’ve done that, though I reserve the right to attempt a Keymaster/Gatekeeper ensemble.
Anyway, the winning four are:
I’ve been thinking about this shit for months now, and I’m so glad I finally get to start talking about (and let’s be honest shopping for) it. Wall o’text below!
