Countdown to Comic Con - It's Finally Here!!!

Guys, it's comic con tomorrow!! I'm so excited. There's been another guest announcement that is crazy exciting for me. Zachary Levi, the voice of Flynn in Tangled and of course the title character in the great show Chuck. I can't afford to meet him sadly, but he has a free talk scheduled that I will most definitely be going to.

Important announcement now ladies and gentlemen, drum roll please, my cosplay is officially finished! I'm not going to add a complete photo on here because I want you to see it to full effect with my friend as Ralph when we're at comic con.

I painted the white stripes on to the leggings which took a while, although it was ironing it to heat set the paint that was particularly tedious, however I think they turned out rather well in the end, and of course you've already seen the finished hoodie.
I've now glued the painted hair bits to some hair grips and tried them in my hair. I have also done a run through of my make up which went much better than expected, although on the day I will be adding false lashes as well. I actually had the side fringe cut in and dyed my hair black just for comic con.
The schedule for the day has been announced, as has the floor plan. I would recommend that anyone who is going check which photo area their photo shoots are in, and then check the floorplan in advance so that they know where they need to be.

This year they have also added rough ideas of which batch numbers are likely to get done in each shoot, which makes it much easier to plan your day.

I am pleased to announce the lucky winner of the Kaylee Frye teddy bear is Claire Davies. Congratulations, I very much hope you enjoy your prize!
Now, I have one last tip for anyone that is going to comic con, and that is to try to relax and have fun. It can get a bit stressful if you have a lot to do, but try to keep calm and take some time to take it all in.

So, you all know what I'll be wearing, if any of you see me on the day feel free to say hi. And if you don't see me on the day then keep an eye on my blog ready for my post about the day including plenty of photographs.
