Maiev Shadowsong - February 13 (cone of shame edition)  
Happy Galentine's Day everyone!

cone of shame

Cone of shame! I decided to go with the loading screen breastplate and a modified version of this derpy looking collar. I've also got the pattern for the bikini, the leg plates, and the boots. Just the bracers to go! Then a bunch of Worbla, paper mache, gesso, and paint. And then I'll be done! That's it! (/dead)

Yeah. It's a lot. But I think it's doable before April.

I booked a room for M2X but I'm not sure if I'm going yet. Doesn't really make sense, but I wanted to make sure I got a cheaper room just in case I do go. Now I've just got to decide before ticket prices rise. Any opinions on going to a con in its first year? I'm worried because they've only just now started to get information out, and as far as I know not even vendors, artists, or panelists have signed up. Just a few guests. I'm nervous about it, but I also feel like it could be awesome. Help!

I was a guest at the first ever LeakyCon, but that was being put together by The Leaky Cauldron,and it was for a single, MASSIVE fandom (Harry Potter, obvs.), so it was pretty much guaranteed that even in it's first year it would do pretty well. We had all of the popular wizard rock bands, Alex Day, John and Hank Green... it's since gotten to be this MASSIVE multi-fandom experience that I would kill to go to again, but that first year was big enough to be a lot of fun, and small enough to be cozy and personal. It was one of my best con experiences, tbh.

That might have been because it was single fandom at the time and put together by a pretty prolific podcast, though...? Still, I think it's cool to be able to be a part of a con at it's inception...

Yeah, I would love to be there the first year and then see how it grows. I think I'm leaning towards yes at this point.
