To celebrate my birthday and hang out with my friends, I went to A-Fest this past weekend. I love this convention because it's in Dallas, so it's near me, and it always falls on my birthday weekend... which is also Labor Day weekend! The convention is four days, not three, so everything is a little slower and there is less stress. I even managed to go to the gym -- what?!
|This is such a good one of both of us!|

Rhyme is most likely the most comfortable costume I've ever worn. I made the skull pin and the bell necklace myself from clay and that's probably the most involved prop I've ever made for cosplay, despite the rest of the costume looking so simple. I have a lot of improvements I want to make on this costume, but it was definitely fun to wear.

I also wore an oldie but a goodie -- Miss Femgineer from Team Fortress 2! I didn't take any photos this convention, but I did get one when I stumbled upon a fellow female engineer. We both ran towards each other! I love con moments like that.
