A-Kon 23

This posting is several weeks late, but I’ve been busy. I’m going back to school to finish my BA in Supply Chain Management.

This was my 5th A-Kon, an anime convention in Dallas. But it was the 1st time I cosplayed! I was Mary Poppins, wearing her outfit when she is putting the nursery “spit-spot”. I even had a spoon and a bottle of “medicine”.

Her skirt was made with the Folkwear #209. Her apron is Butterick B5509, enlarged to fit. I was unable to locate yellow & white stripped fabric in time, so this is a plain white shirt from my closet. Time to check out the quilt stores!

I decided not to cosplay as The Woman from Doctor Who. It was just too hot to wear layers of velvet.

Mara & Kayle both cosplayed. They wore their cosplays from Nurarihyon no Mago and Bleach. Kayle also wore her Steampunk gown and her 8th Doctor cosplay. Mara also wore her Lulu cosplay from Final Fantasy X.
