Boneslum Beauty is PAIN
Photos to come. My shoes (which were finalized with a backup-backup-backup plan because despite best instructions and intentions metalworking was not an easily picked-up skill) were delightfully painful; I walked around for all of an hour before sitting outside in the breeze. I *did* get more than one compliment/question about my seven-inch anti-gravity wedges, namely “how did I walk in them?!?” Answer: as if baby Otachis were nomming my now-bunions every second!
OFDonut, pseudomachine, and soundingsea looked AMAZING as (the tiniest) Tendo, Herman, and Newt respectively. Lots of silly and adorable pictures, especially of Science Bros-friends. OFDonut busted her ass on soundingsea’s tattoos and they looked phenomenal. How pseudomachine survived in a coat AND parka is beyond me since the con floor was roasting hot already. I can’t thank them all enough for their help on my own cosplay - everyones’ was a collaborative effort really, which was way more fun.
Sadly we missed any meetup folks, but truth be told Pacific Rim was barely represented overall at the con. We found ONE dealer with the toys (at $40 a crack!), one with prints of the jaeger blueprints, and one with tees. I know there are other cosplayers but we all seemed to miss each other!
I still have faded swallows on my hands. Not gonna wash them off tonight.
