Today I stepped into a new world of imagination at Hal-Con and it was wonderfully fun. This is my first convention. It is also my first attempt at a making a costume for a con. As soon as I knew that I was going with my friends I began considering costume ideas. There were so many possibilities. Then I found out Mark Oakley was going. Mark is the incredible indie comic creator of Thieves and Kings and Stardrops (a strip that runs in the Wolfville Grapevine). I decided that I would go as his character Katara. This is how it turned out:
I've already broken the con survival guide of "3,2,1" -three hours sleep, two meals, and one shower per day. Friday I woke up at 9:30am I had a short 20 min nap Saturday morning at 5am....and it now 1:29am Sunday morning. It is time for bed.
