Post By neimhaille. 06/09/09, 10:26 am

No I am not there and will never (sad cry.. smallest violin and all that jazz) However two friends from here have gone over (I know a few more attending of course, costuming circles cross the world :) ) and have been posting photo updates :)

So we can all live vicariously through them:

You may recognise them from Cosplay contests here :) Matt won Welly 08 with the Spartans and Kristy got best cartoon (I think!) in the same for her Snow Bunny Padme and they won Auckland 07 together with Joker and Harley. kristy has helped with the contest a few times now too :) And both have been long time Star Wars costumers at Geddon.

It was funny how many people couldn't believe we had come all the way from NZ. Yeah, it was rather expensive Shocked But after an experience like that, it made us look at costuming a whole new way. Talking about the weekend on the flight home, we realised we both want to go back next year :)

There's just no way to convey the sheer size of it all. The number of people in the Marriott atrium on Saturday night/Sunday morning was incredible... Sunday night Matt and I were both there and couldn't find each other!

That Steampunk X-Men group was amazing - loved Rogue's outfit! I really want to design a steampunk costume sometime...

Yeah the guest list is incredible, over 400 guests! Matt and I got our photo with Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner - they were great. We can't wait to see who's coming next year - just booked our hotel room for 2010, can't wait to go again :)

Here's a few things that we learnt before going, and things that we learnt there - we consider our first trip a learning experience, and next year will be our real DC experience :)

San Diego Comic Con is bigger, but some say it has become 'too big', with film companies taking over a large portion of it, monster lines to see things, and it's never had a big costuming element compared to DragonCon (though the Masquerade competiton is quite popular).

DragonCon is one of the biggest costuming conventions in the world. Even though I haven't attended ComicCon myself, I would rank DragonCon as the one I would recommend to anyone, and the one I choose to go to :) That's from a costuming point of view - if you're big into collectibles/comics/autographs/panels, then CC is a great choice :)

Wow thank you! So much useful info, just what I was looking for. I'm sure there'll be much more we need to know, but at least you've steered me in the right direction. Sometimes you don't know what you don't know...

Thank you!

Hey Anaria, there's now a Terminator 2 group forming up for Wellygeddon 2010 (in the General Discussion forum). That pic of the terminator cosplayer you posted at Dragoncon on p1, has so inspired me to do him! Funny that.
