Hey peeps! Merry Belated Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope you all had a fab time and got all kinds of fun and geeky wonders under the tree. It turns out we had a very Zelda Christmas, as not only did hubby and I gift eachother with Zelda stuff (I gave him a Link statuette and he gave me a ceramic ocarina), but the tree was bedecked with just a hint of geekery, with a collection of Link's swords and shields strewn about the branches, and Link himself on top watching over the festivities!

Another Con has come and gone, leaving me with great memories and the usual task of tracking down all the photos floating around the internet from the cosplay of the day - it's taken a while and I've found a few, but I keep feeling like there are more out there because the world LOVED my sweet Baby Crankypants in her itty bitty Baby Link cosplay, and even when I didn't have her on me, Princess Zelda drew enough photo requests and complements in her own right!

So come Saturday morning, following my whirlwind week of nose to the grindstone working on Zelda in every moment that wasn't dedicated to childcare or previously scheduled social commitments, I had let enough details fall by the way side and had been prepared to let Zelda's wrapped braid things go that way too - the plan had been to pick up some hair at Sally Beauty to pre-wrap and clip in, but I hadn't had the time to go. Luckily, Big Sis Crankypants brought me to my senses and helped me execute a quick elastic wrap job - and I love how it turned out! Next we applied the ears, coloured them with foundation to make them look less sickly pale, and I gave myself a quick eye makeup - Taa daa! Once Baby Crankypants was fed and dressed, we were ready to go!
The setup was a little different from previous cons, instead of stepping straight into the dealers room

Overall, I enjoyed Pop Expo again! I'm hoping they'll have a third next year, but it did seem a little... sparsely populated. There weren't as many booths, and there weren't as many people - don't get me wrong, there were still PLENTY, but the crowds were nothing like Comiccon. Hopefully next year I'll be able to have enough time to put together a costume well enough in advance to hit the Masquerade!
