Hello. Long time no post!
Thought I'd better start blogging again, seeing as its been so long :)
A few weeks ago I attended MCM Scotland, one of my favourite events to attend.
Everyone's always so lovely up there and the event is always a good show.
I went with my bff Morti who shared a table with me.
Sharing a table was fun but I've definitely outgrown a half table setup; got so much stuff now xD
But I managed to make it work and it looked great having everything clustered together.
Lots of colour :)
Saturday was a busy day.
It was a sell out show so lots of cosplayers and crowds wandering the hall. The level of cosplay was fantastic as always :D
My favourites from the weekend were an amazing Dr Jones Snr from The Last Crusade and of course
this adorable Deku and Kaachan from BNHA
My friends Leon, Red and co all came in their amazing Beauty and the Beast cosplays.
Honestly I'm so excited to be joining them in November as part of their group (Bimbette red!)
After the show we met up with friends and had the most amazing Pizzas ever!
I was also treated to Tim Hortons and now doughnuts have been ruined for me xD
THEY WERE SO GOOD! I heartily recommend the Tim Bits and the Chai Latte <3
Sunday was quieter but still plenty to do
I spent a lot of it drawing originals and commissions. Pretty much did nothing but BNHA art, which i was completely fine with hahaa!!
Overall it was a pretty chilled event for me.
Made good sales and had an amazing time. Cannot wait for London now :)
Speaking of Boku No Hero Academia....
I'm currently in BNHA hell and I'm taking you all with me! xD
Been working on lots of art and sketches from the show. Seriously I'm obsessed!
It's been so long since I was this heavily into an Anime; like it must be 10 years now lol!!
But its also really nice. I have lots of friends who are also garbage with me so its nice to just get lost in a fandom again :)
Book 4 funded in 2 days!!
My Kickstarter for the next Madam Butterscotch installment is now live and already funded!! Now we're onto stretch goals so spread the word!
Big thank you for all the support and live for Butterscotch over the years.
I couldn't have done this without you guys <3
check out the Kickstarter here
Happy New Year!
After a horrific nights sleep (I never sleep well on the first night of a con :| ) we woke and got ready for the day.
I helped Morti get into her Kylo Ren - which certainly turned some heads on the way to the venue hahaa - and we were set for the day.
I was rocking a super cute navy pencil skirt from The Collectif and my Qwertee Overwatch Tee.
It was nice to see my diet was still working, felt good again :D
It was so good to have my table setup back to normal and I had soooo much new stock this time - a lot of it Overwatch one must admit :P
AND SHE FLIPPIN' WON!!!
I was so so proud of her and chuffed to bits she placed. All that hard work over the last year was really beginning to pay off and she looked so awesome.
Considering this is her second cosplay she's made, the detailing and skill put into it is disgusting lol I'm so jelly of her talents :D
After an amazing end to Saturday it was time for a well earned swim and night out. As it is customary for us, we went to TGIs for food and cocktails and had a great night catching up
It'll be two years since I last dealt at Sunnycon and I can't wait to showcase my new art and comics.
Now at St James Park football stadium, I'm looking forward to a bigger, less windy event lol xD
So if you're attending be sure to stop by and say hi.
I'll post another update about table locations and new art closer to the time :)
Bye for now guys
I've been attending this event ever since its first one back in 2009 and have watch it grow into one of the UK's staple events.
It sells out every year now in record sales and is famous for its stella parties.
I've also had the honour the last few years of being part of their art team and so have been designing con badges, banners and t-shirts for them.
This year the Trophies and VIP t-shirts are of my designs so i cannot wait to see them in person <(￣︶￣)>
I can't even tell you how excited I am for this event.
Normally its one that i only cosplay at and go all out on big, stupid costumes lol
But this year, as I did a lot of art for them, I decided to get myself a dealers table.
So this year will be my first year dealing as an artist at the event!! ☆*:.｡.o(≧▽≦)o.｡.:*☆
What's even more exciting is I do also have some costumes/outfits for the event too!
Really looking forward to the parties!!!
