This year, I decided I needed to step up my ‘traveling with costumes’ game in addition to my cosplay game. This afternoon, I bought a pair of garment bags which I will try out, compare, and contrast while traveling to Dragon Con.
The good news today is that, thanks to the generosity of a friend, I get to take ALL the long dresses (and my Jedi cloak, of course) to this year’s Dragon Con! I talk briefly about which costumes I’ll be bringing, and how excited I am about Dragon Con.
At the end of a quiet day, I talk about the costume progress I made today and reply to one of my fellow DDoP podcasters’ shows. Once again, no in-depth editing or music because it’s a work night and I need to get to bed.

I walked back to my hotel room to rest, eat a snack, and relax for a bit before the Parsec Awards. Since the awards presentation was a formal occasion, I also wanted to put my robe on for it. When I was ready, I walked back to the Hyatt and found the ballroom we were Continue reading →
