GenCon Day 3
Today seemed remarkably shorter than even the last. The demos were sparse, but I managed to get some very valuable playing lessons in with Bill and his custom decks. I must say, I do get the hang of things quickly. He battled me with his wicked Shadow Priest deck while I used his amazing Destruction Warlock deck. Second time around I won, but both matches were agonizingly close. This was at the end of the day of course–on my break I was able to run around to take photos and buy an adorable bracelet!
Today was the costume contest and my were there some brilliant costumes. Though I was not able to attend the contest I did manage to get photos of the winners! The cosplay parade was not friendly to my camera, so while those pictures are sub-par I got to roam around on my lunch and find some great cosplayers lingering the halls for me to take pictures of.
Cosplays were my first priority, but I also remembered those adorable dragon bracelets from the first day so I hunted that booth down. The owners were very nice and the dragons up close were even cuter than I expected! They are a resin/rubber like mold with a bendable spine that come as plain as you like or with wings and ornate armor. They have a variety of colors as well as facial features. I got the one that reminded me of Toothless from “How To Train Your Dragon”. :3 He hung out on my arm and then around my neck for the rest of my shift. He now resides on my purse strap.
The day has left me with great ideas for decks and costumes that I plan to make just as soon as my latest projects are finished. If I am lucky I will have the materials needed to construct some killer decks that will hopefully get me in the top 8 of some Dark Moon Fairs (coming from a Sailor Moon junky, you know it’s a win for me). I hope to win them in a Dragon costume as well.
Toodles for now!
