London Comic Con Winter 2022

London Comic Con Winter 2022

I just got back yesterday from London Comic Con Winter and this time, I'm doing my post con post immediately!  In the week leading up to the event, I was nervous I wouldn't be able to go. I've been coughing and snuffy nosed since Yunicon last month, and although I...

Yunicon 2022

Yunicon 2022

It's been almost a month since Yunicon and I feel bad for not making a post about it earlier. But I've been so sick and stressed since, I haven't had the energy. I was sick on the day we headed home (31st of October) and as of writing this (22nd of Nov.) I'm still...

“Magiske Dage” in Odense

“Magiske Dage” in Odense

This weekend I visited Magiske Dage (Magical days) in Odense. It's a yearly city festival in the Danish town of Odense (hometown of famous fairytale author H.C. Andersen). Since 2002, they've been hosting this event, which originally was a Harry Potter-festival (until...

Rapunzel hair

Rapunzel hair

I think I did a post here about my hair before, but ages ago. I figured it's time to answer some questions about my hair again, because I often get them. So, here's some random thoughts and answers to questions about my hair. Many ask how long I have been growing my...

Autumn update 2022

Autumn update 2022

I'm still alive! Just taking a little break from cosplay. Fantasy Festival exhausted me socially, and I didn't feel like working on cosplays for a while. But since I'm a creative person, that didn't mean I did nothing - I've been getting into making hair sticks and...

Fantasy Festival 2022

Fantasy Festival 2022

Last weekend I went to Fantasy Festival with my cosplay group, Warcrafters. We hosted a little booth where we showed people what cosplay is and it was super popular as always. We arrived friday to set up and saturday was the first big day. This year's saturday had...

Vacation & a huge fabric shop

Vacation & a huge fabric shop

So this last week I had my first vacation that didn't involve cosplaying in a looong time. I travelled to Vilnius, Lithuania and explored the city. I can recommend this place - there's many things to see and the old town is full of pretty buildings and interesting...

All of the Rapunzel

All of the Rapunzel

So I've been putting off photoshoots for a while for a few reasons. First, it's been summer and it's just kinda sucky to do photoshoots when it's full-on summer. Outside, it's too sunny (best weather for photoshoot is overcast) and it's just generally too hot...

Gamevention 2022

Gamevention 2022

Last weekend, I was at Gamevention with the Warcrafters. It's the first German convention in years and it was great to see new and old friends there. We had a booth exhibiting our things and had so many visitors - I also spoke so much German, haha. I am always...

Comic Con Baltics

Comic Con Baltics

I promised a big report from Comic Con Baltics. I was sooo excited to go, and I spent so much time in the days leading up to preparing for the event. This was a convention that was planned for 2020, then got changed to 2021, then moved a third time to this year. So...

Leaving on a jetplane

Leaving on a jetplane

After a couple of slightly stressful weeks, the day has come when I'm heading to Lithuania for Comic Con Baltics! It's very rare that I need to travel in ways where I have to limit my packing - I'm used to filling up our stationcar to the brim! But I managed to fit...

The struggles of pattern making

The struggles of pattern making

Years ago, I made my first Rapunzel cosplay. I really like her character - she's a Disney princess, but she's got a mind of her own, she gets stuff done, she is really clever and very creative. When Eugene proposed to her, she actually said no - twice - because she...

Spreading the word of cosplay

Spreading the word of cosplay

So a couple of days ago, I was talking with a customer on the phone at work, and he ended the call with: "Saw that interview with you, that cosplay thing you do is pretty cool!"  Since I had no idea the interview was posted (or, indeed, was sure which one it was) I...

Gamebox Festival 2022

Gamebox Festival 2022

Yesterday I got back from the first ever Gamebox Festival and man, what an impressive first event that was! I attended as part of the group that hosted the Cosplay Lounge - The Warcrafters. We brought our exhibit and also helped out other cosplayers at the event. It...

Elune gallery

Elune gallery

Just a quick post to tell that I made a page for my Elune photos in the gallery section. I haven't done a full photoshoot of her yet, but I will soon - so far I just have some hall shots from Scificon. You can see them here:  

Sci-fi-con Randers 2022

Sci-fi-con Randers 2022

I spent this weekend at Sci-fi-con Randers (Denmark). It was a 2-day event with around 3000 visitors. I had an absolutely amazing weekend and it was a great event to kick off my 2022 cosplay season. The cosplay contest at this con is a bit different from the usual...
