I'm Memory. I used to write about my travels. Now I post whatever interests me, including stuff about the Buffyverse, Once Upon A Time, A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones, awesome landscapes, painfully cute animals, great music, and random thoughts.
Friends, I had so much fun at Keycon! I didn’t make a whole lot (around $240 after my table fee and parking), but I got rid of a bunch of stuff, and I talked to lots of interesting people, and I marvelled at a great many talented cosplayers.
I hope my collections will be gone by next year, but Mitchie and I talked about going as attendees (as opposed to dealers, which is what I was this time). I’m sure it’d be even more fun to roam around the con. People seem pretty approachable, too; much moreso than they were at Au Contraire. That might’ve been because my table gave me a reason to talk to ‘em, though; at Au Contraire, I was the girl who didn’t know a single other fan in THE ENTIRE COUNTRY, which made it difficult to just walk up to people and be like, “Yo, let’s geek out together.”
I took a few pics of cosplayers, but I’m not sure whether it’s okay to share them on the Internet or not. Some were kids, so… yeah. They were amazing, though! I especially loved the three little kids dressed up as red, yellow, and blue Daleks. I also photographed some impressive Weeping Angels, a TARDIS, and a Castiel. I wish I’d asked the three Assassin’s Creed guys and the girl-Michelangelo, too.
Asha Greyjoy did not intend to be taken alive. She would die as she had lived, with an axe in her hand and a laugh upon her lips.
