Hello friends! So during the beginning of the month I was super excited to be preparing for NYCC! With all the excitement and last minute prepping (you know me and my procrastination) I completely forgot that my job had asked me to help with a new store opening which took up majority of my prep time for the con... However, I had managed to juggle both my job and my cosplay. It was definitely not easy but I powered through....LIKE A CHAMP!
In reference to my last post, I totally DID go to that Chive meetup... even though I should've stayed home and sewn my cosplay. No regrets though, it was loads of fun and I made new friends. It's always nice to go to things like this because you know that everyone is there for the same reason and to break the ice I just turned to them and said "hey, why are we not friends yet?" and that was that! It was super! The Chive has been really great lately, a great mix of people and personalities, I can't wait to go to the next!
The new store opening was in Trumbull, CT and it was amazing! The store was beautiful and the people are wonderful! Everyone was very excited to learn and very eager to open the store and on Oct. 11th they were able to do just that! A wondrous opening that everyone was proud to be a part of. (I don't remember if I told you guys yet, but I work at the Apple store haha if it was not obvious)
Since my Harley Quinn by Williann cosplay was far from finished, I had to get a move on, with not a minute to spare. All my time was devoted to finishing my cosplay with all the little details made to perfection. I stayed up until 5am on Friday trying to get everything together and missed my train in the morning but was able to catch the next one and off to NYCC I was! It as glorious! So many things to see, my favorite thing to do at cons is people watch and let me tell you, I was not disappointed! The main thing I wanted to do that whole weekend was see all my cosplay friends that I feel I've grown so close to over social media that if I didn't see them here I was afraid I wouldn't be able to catch them at another con. Monika Lee, LeeAnna Vamp, Lindsay Elyse, Riddle, and of course you all know my BFF (atleast in my mind) Jessica Nigri! They were all so sweet and kind! I cannot believe how comfortable they made me feel even though to them I'm a complete stranger that is only one like or one comment on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. But the great thing is that some of them even recognized me from Twitter! When I asked for a poster from Lindsay Elyse signed to Tina she said "Tina from Twitter?" I FREAKED OUT! Completely blown away at how they remember something so small out of their thousands and even millions of followers. They are so inspiring and are all around my age, I hope within the next couple of years I'm able to accomplish as much as they have. To be able to be friends with all the rad people who go to cons, roam online, and play games with me even though I'm not that good. And to inspire others and be a role model of positive nature and following dreams. That would be amazing.
I also grabbed some sweet merch all over the place at NYCC! Cherry Sauce Clothing had some sweet Filthy Casual shirts and tanks, and all the cosplay posters I can fit on my wall :D
Anyways, enjoy some pictures! Until next time <3
