Desucon 9

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.

Day 1


Beautiful and graceful Elves! 
Arwen, Tauriel, Thranduil, his Elven Queen and Galadriel


Costumes on display.


Daenerys Targaryen.


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.


Kíli and Fíli

Day 2


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.


Bubbles!!!!


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?

Jeg synes du fikk kjempemange fine bilder, jeg ^^ Spesielt av deg selv ;p

Jeg la også min elsk på Sansa, hun var perfekt! Og kjolen til Grethe! Ah, jeg fikk ikke bilde av den :O

Du var kjempesøt begge dagene!

Skulle ønske jeg også kunne ha vært der, men jeg hadde ingenting å ha på meg, og det å gå i "sivilt" er jo ikke noe særlig på et slikt arrangement :p

~Gaiadóttir~: Tusen takk! ^_^ Jeg er bare litt allergisk mot kornete bilder :p Og måtte redigere dem masse for at de i det hele tatt skulle være presentable.
Det var så mange fine cosplays!

Pia Amariel: Aww, takk! ^_^ Og det er fullt akseptert å gå i vanlige klær på cons, så jeg håper ikke det stopper deg fra å gå neste gang! Det var folk med alle slags klær på Desucon! Så uansett hadde du ikke skilt deg ut.

Ja, det er jo greit å gå sånn man vil, men det må jo være mye gøyere å kle seg ut når de man er der sammen med også er utkledd. Men har jo god tid til å forberede meg til neste år da, hehe :p

Pia Amariel: Ja, det har du jo :) Jeg har fått blod på tann nå, og skal på ALLE Desuconene, hahaha :p Neste år blir det sikkert episk, for da er det jubileum.

Ja, det blir sikkert ekstra spesielt ^_^

Your dryad costume is very pretty! I am jealous of that dress! Grethe's woodland queen dress looks like the most amazing thing I could ever imagine! Definitely on my wishlist! I love your Steampunk Lolita dress too! Did you buy it or make it?

Flotte antrekk begge dagane, spesielt steampunk-loli! Er det sjølvlaga eller kjøpt (eller begge delar)? Er ihvertfall ingen tvil om at du trivst i det antrekket, du stråler jo ^^

Angåande cosplay hadde eg faktisk tenkt å foreslå Malon før eg såg at du hadde skrevet det *ler* Trur du hadde gjort deg som ho ^^

Laura Morrigan: Thank you very much for your lovely compliments! I bought the steampunk dress from Fanplusfriend.com, though I had to make some alterations to it since it wasn't sewn very well (longer on one side than the other), so I don't know if I would recommend them.

Fru S.: Tusen takk! :D Det er kjøpt, mine sykunnskaper har dessverre ikke nådd det nivået ennå. Kjolen er fra Fanplusfriend (anbefales dog ikke, dårlig sydd) og blusen fra Bodyline. Ja, jeg elsker å gå i lolita ^_^
Hihi, vi tenkte likt der! Hadde vært moro, men får se hva jeg bestemmer meg for. Er jo ikke sikkert jeg får dratt engang hvis det kolliderer med et bryllup jeg skal i.

I have a great love for all things fantastical, fairytale-ish. Irish, Celtic and Norse. My biggest passion is playing the harp, but I also love playing my tin whistles/flute and making fantasy jewellery. I have a Bachelor's degree in the Irish language (also covering Celtic civilization, literature and mythology) from the University of Oslo, which I am very proud of even if I can't use it for anything career-wise. This blog is all about the things I like and involve myself in, and hopefully I may be of some inspiration to others.
