I’ve been remodeling a bathroom the last couple of weeks, so I haven’t been working on cosplay much, and I’ve been blogging even less. I wanted to write a bit and let you know about our geek schedule this summer.
FANCon and Food Truck Rally is June 2nd.
Brickslopes is June 29th and 30th.
Salt Lake Gaming Con is July 6th and 7th.
Salt Lake Comic Con is September 6th through 8th.
You know what this means, right? I have to get Jubilee’s Eowyn cosplay done by June for the FANCon cosplay contest. And it’s not going well.
The problem is, I realized it’s gonna be dang hot this summer. She’s going to want to wear her cosplay every Con except Brickslopes (maybe), and Utah summers get hotter than OT Han Solo.
So, I disassembled her hauberk. I’m going to attach the pieces that are visible to her outer armor individually instead of making her wear the whole thing like a paint-covered sweater when it’s 100 degrees outside. Cuz I’m a good mom.
Jubilee has been practicing her stage performance. It consists of her flipping her hair and yelling, “I am no man!” I need to get that kid a helmet made to toss aside, ASAP.
Jubilee is also growing her hair out. She hates brushing it, so it’s very similar to the hair of a woman who spends way too much time in a war camp with a bunch of dudes.
