Working on several costumes at once, I was happy to recently finish both my Jane from Tarzan costume (more and that later) and my Xena Warrior Princess cosplay just in time for Elfia. Despite hopeful thinking, the weatherforecasts remained cold and rainy, and my plans had to change when the weekend of Elfia arrived.
Instead of wearing Xena on Saturday (which was promised to be the sunniest day by far) and Jane on Sunday, I now bravely wore Jane on Saturday and something freestyle and a lot warmer on Sunday. And a good thing too. The weather was cold, with temperatures feeling around zero degrees because of the cold wind and lack of sun, and not only did it rain but there was hail and snow as well. Kudos to all those cosplayers who walked around with bare arms or – even worse- bare legs and stomachs.
After joining the Disney meet and shoot on Saturday and doing the silliest dance I’ve done by far, I dressed in multiple layers for an apocalyptic Rikku on Sunday – no make up except for some natural lipstick and the black stripes on my cheek. My eye was bright red and I didn’t and to irritate it. Still I like my look that day and the pictures in the Tardis so have those as well.
There was not one Tardis, but two (with interior), and of course Wizardwear was present to represent the Harry Potter fandom. Whoohoo (go Ashley!).
All in all it was a fun weekend, totally worth it.
