Scratches on my eyeballs and a visit to casualty (on the saturday of amecon!)
Wore this for 3 days at Amecon 08. It's pretty much safe to say its retired now, the dark green fabric frays and there are now holes ALL over the costume. I'm probs gunna get a hair cut, so my hair won't be able to do those stupidly long platts (< spelling?) again. And I won't be attemtping to dye my hair myself again any time soon! That was a disaster haha~
In the car journey back, I wasn't even in the same car, but my wings got snapped in half :( and my crossbows red crystal has been smashed, and other various bits broken. Its a shame, I loved that thing, and I got praise from a few people (thank you!) but I hardly got to carry it around as was in crowded rooms most of the time, my wings were hard enough to carry!
I regret not wearing my wings for most photos, and my crossbow being constantly on the fourth floor of Charles Wilson. There are few photos with one, or both in :(
But it was a good laugh, and thanks to everyone who took my photo, made the pain all worth it!
