I got back from MCM yesterday, and now my feet still ache a little, and I still have remnants of spirit gum on my face from a failed fake beard on Friday xD
I wasn't feeling much love for my Serana costume on Saturday and Sunday - got acknowledgement from a whole like... four? people. I don't count the people in Skyrim costumes who were all like "oh... you're... um... thingy." Still, I'm a fan of my costume, even if it did try to overheat me to death. I should remember for future that costumes from Skyrim aren't a great idea unless I have the climate from Skyrim to match. It probably doesn't help that I overheat so easily it's ridiculous, but in my defense, I was wearing like four layers - that's control underwear, an undershirt, corset top, and then a cape, choker and bracers all made of faux leather, which is a ridiculous material.
OH WELL! I survived mostly intact, and then we'll do it all again in May (we're already looking at hotels!)
