This past weekend was the most wonderful I've had in a loooong time, full of good friends, amazing cosplays and fun experiences! I went to Desucon for the first time (that is, I've been to Desucon Fantasy twice before, but never Desucon proper) and now I can't believe I haven't gone before! I only wish I'd had time to make a really good cosplay, but with my back being hurt I simply haven't had the time. I did dress up as a Dryad, a tree-spirit, on Saturday, though, and on Sunday I went in Steampunk Lolita. I ended up feeling really pretty and pleased with my outfits on both days, so that was good.
I wish I had some great photos to show you, but unfortunately I only have bad quality phone camera pictures. The first day I didn't have room in my small bag for a camera, and yesterday I brought the camera, but forgot the memory card :'( So I only had my phone. But still, I hope the pictures I have will be worth looking at anyway.
Costumes on display.
The only pic I have of my Dryad costume, though I hope I'll get some better pictures later. It's hard to see because of the graininess, but I drew vines and leaves creeping up my right leg and left arm, as well as tiny leaves and twigs on my right cheek.
Edit: I just got this pic that Kama took of me, where you can see the leaves a bit better, as well as make out the tree I drew on my chest.
A slightly better closeup of my Dryad makeup.
Selfie featuring my wonderful hat, glorious curls and the most perfect backdrop ever that I found outside a coffee shop at Byporten in Oslo while waiting for my ride.
Isn't she the cutest Sansa ever? That hair! It's all her own hair, as far as I could tell. Such a perfect colour!
Grethe, a beautiful woodland queen. I am so in love with that dress, not to mention the crown!
Ingrid took this picture of my steam-loli outfit! I love the way it all came together.
Lise was awesome as San, Princess Mononoke.
Anita is also a pretty tough-looking Kíli.
Elsa is ready to let it go after a long weekend at Desucon 9. I was had been excited to see Ida's Elsa costume, and I was not disappointed.
And Ariel, combing her red locks with a fork. Trine's dress was so amazing!

I have decided to try my cosplay skills for the next con, Desucon Cosplay in the autumn. Now I only need to figure out what to cosplay. I think it will be something from either Final Fantasy or Zelda (my two biggest video game loves!), but I'm not sure who. Garnet/Dagger or Rinoa would be fun, but I've also always wanted to cosplay Malon from Ocarina of Time.
Were you at Desucon 9? Did you have fun?
