Ikkicon is usually a pretty chill convention. It’s during New Year’s weekend (or, this year, the weekend before) and everyone is still recovering from the holidays. Ikkicon is time to take it easy, hang out, and just relax before school starts up again.
Conventions are always an excuse to see some of my favorite people that live across the state and country. This time, Glitzy Geek Girl, aka Anna, stayed with us for the first time, which was super fun! Check out her Ikkicon album for lots of pictures of our room and her adventures.
I added a new prop to my arsenal – cosplay contact cards! I got a few printed with Ramona’s phone number on one side.
My other newly debuted costume this convention was Luna Lovegood! I love this character, but I wasn’t expecting such a warm reception to this costume! I figured Harry Potter is kind of old at this point, but I was stopped a lot for photos. I also did my first-ever photoshoot with someone I didn’t already know – cosplay achievement unlocked! I hope the photos turned out cute and I can’t wait to share them with you all.
Other than cosplay, I didn’t do much at the con. We ordered delicious food, played Cards Against Humanity and Pokemon, and took lots of cosplay selfies. Ikkicon will always be a chill con for me, and that’s exactly the way I like it!
