Ikkicon! Ikki is in Austin, Texas and usually falls through New Year's weekend (although that didn't happen this year). After the summer conventions, it's several months until the next Texas convention, so I always look forward to Ikkicon! It's also the perfect time for me as a student; I can celebrate the end of the semester by finishing up a costume and hanging out with my con friends.

So I rolled up my sleeves, bought a dress pattern, fabric, and wig supplies, and got to work! The dress actually came out nearly perfectly. It fits like it was made for my specific body type and went off without a hitch (almost). I could even wear it as a regular dress if I wanted! (I wish you could see it more underneath the jacket.)
The wig was the other difficult part for me, but I'm pretty pleased with the results. I've never styled a wig before so it was a new adventure for me.
Overall, the costume was incredibly comfortable and creating it went smoothly!

I did a little mini photoshoot with Colby as my Scott, and I love the way the photos came out! I got a new camera for Christmas -- the Canon Rebel T3i -- and although I know little about photography, my photos are already coming out wonderfully. I would definitely recommend it for the beginner photographer interested in owning a DSLR camera. All the photos in this post were taken with the auto settings!

As usual, I had a great time at Ikkicon and am looking forward to planning my 2013 costumes and conventions! I have cosplay resolutions for the upcoming year and I can't wait to see where it takes me.
