This Weekend: Abunaicon!

Hello lovely geeks! This weekend I will be attending the Abunaicon in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. This is one of the biggest anime conventions of the Netherlands and this will be my third time attending and this time we were able to get a room at the location itself instead of a hotel close by! This will be short review of my preperations!

I will wear my Link cosplay on Friday, and I will ware my newly made Great Fairy (tLoZ: Twilight Princess) on Saturday and Sunday.

Since I’m still an amateur cosplayer with no sewing skills whatsoever, I thought the Great Fairy would be easy to make. I found the right fabric at a market. It turned out a lot more difficult that I thought! Here are some pictures of work in progress. Also, yay for double-sided tape! And for those who want to know: I bought my wig at 😉 . And yes, I know I have to comb my bangs back.

This year there will be a masked ball at Abunai. Because I don’t really have ball-gown cosplay, I figured I would just wear the dress I wore to prom at high school. Actually I’m kinda happy I can wear it again! But since this is of course an anime convention, I wanted to add a little Zelda-touch to my outfit. So I decided to decorate the masks! Also, the Majora’s Mask mask helped me to convince my boyfriend to attend to the ball as well 🙂

I’m really looking forward to the con! Expect a report one or two weeks after this weekend! Do you live in the Netherlands or Belgium and want to visit a convention too? Here is a list with (also other fantasy related conventions and events)
