AwesomeCon 2019

I only went to AwesomeCon for one day, but I had a great time. I got to hang out with Mike and Gloria and do a photoshoot with them, and I got some quality time in with Janine at the Princess Awesome booth, since she was helping boothsit for them, and I was happy just to hang out. Plus my daughter wears Princess Awesome, so I was happy to help talk it up to passersby.

I wore my Leia Bespin costume since I haven’t worn it in like 10 years, and I was hoping to get some good photos of it, since last time I did wear it, the photo quality isn’t what it is today!

Ron had a broken foot and made the most of it.

Janine wore her Captain Marvel, though she was an exhausted Captain Marvel with so much going on, I was amazed she made it to the Con at all!

Mike and Gloria were trying out some photographic techniques and it was fun seeing them set up for it! When you see the results, you would never guess this was how they got them!

Then we went upstairs to find a spot to take some photos. Mike took a ton of great photos of my Leia Bespin costume. Thanks again to Mike & Gloria of In the Long Run Designs!!

This is probably my favorite one because it shows off all the awesome embroidery:

So nice to see Kristin because I haven’t seen her in years despite knowing her since the 90s!! She makes gorgeous bags now.

I did buy a Trek bag from her on Etsy so we made sure to get a photo!

I went to change after hanging out at the Princess Awesome booth, and to meet Doug and Elena, who came in to meet me & MIke & Gloria for dinner. I was sidetracked when I spotted what looked like an amazing Titanic Jump dress on the escalator. I followed her and managed to flag her down, and when I asked if she used Costumer’s Guide for her dress, she recognized me and freaked out and it was super flattering.

Her dress is amazing in every way and she even had a red wig going. So shout-out to Laci!

We went to Spice 6 for dinner – fast casual Indian, and they had dosa, which were something I’d not had before. Two thumbs up! Elena enjoyed it too! She scarfed down the chickpeas!
