The Sci-Fi Weekender is nearly here again!

So, the Sci-Fi Weekender is nearly here again and cosplay calls. As my better half is going as the Terminator (it is a big birthday for her, so her call – good one I may add) I have decided to go as Sarah Connor from Terminator 2. The big hair from Terminator 1 was tempting, but kick-ass Sarah Connor won instead. This will be less of a making outfit and  more sourcing and putting together. I will also be spending may hours at the gym trying to get those arms, of course ignoring the fact that losing a few pounds might help🙂

This is what I am aiming for:

What I am gong for - Kick-Ass Sarah Connor!

What I am going for – Kick-Ass Sarah Connor!

Alice makes another appearance – Manchester Comic Con

Ok so last minute cosplay and Alice is off to Wonderland again – or more correctly the Manchester Comic Con this weekend.

I was not initially planning to go this year, but arm firmly twisted and i’m quite looking forward to seeing all the cosplayers!


Sci Fi weekender

So, after a bit of a hiatus I am now going to be attending the Sci Fi Weekender in March and am thinking of some good (fairly easy) cosplay ideas for myself and the other half.

We were thinking of maybe Walt and Jessie from Breaking Bad fame, but not sure if it will go down well as not at all Sci Fi (except that Hazmat suits do give off a Sci Fi vibe) lol!

Claire did Play Expo 2012

Well, confession time, I got a bit too carried away playing Text Adventures and Manic Miner to take hardly any cosplay photos, but there were some great costumes. The picture I was most pleased to get was the one below of the Ghostbusters, they were amazing!

So, my thoughts on the day. In many ways I liked Play Expo better than Eurogamer (shock horror), I loved all the old games and consoles and the pinball and arcade machines were great fun. It may not have had the pizazz of Eurogamer, but it had a great atmosphere and a walk down memory lane.

Play Expo in my civies

I am off to Play Expo in my hometown of Manchester next week and will not be cosplaying, boo:/ I decided that as i’m only going for a day (Saturday) I would rather just go and enjoy some serious gaming.

I will however be taking pictures of the fantastic cosplayers that are there and will post some of my favourites to my blog, so if you want your picture taken come and find me – if you can recognise me without the wig haha!
