It's been quiet here, sorry. In the past months I've been working on new ideas for Geeklings. My best friend is going to be a partner in this, but all good things take time..
In november I took both my Geeklings to the Dutch Comic Con. I worked on their My Little Pony costumes for a while and both of them were very happy with the result. I decided to take one of them at a time, so I could follow their lead completely. Evy (4) has been to the Comic Con two times already and was looking forward to it for weeks, she infected her little sister (3). Evy dressed up as Celestia, and Lise was Luna (as was I).
We loaded our MLP constumes on the bus and traveled to the Jaarbeurs. This time the entrance was in the gaming hall, which means a LOT of noise. I would have liked the entrance in a calmer hall, especially for kids, because going to Comic Con can be very overwhelming. Luckily my Geeklings took it well, but we moved to another hall quickly.
My girls like Comic Con when there are things to DO. They don't give a shit about famous guest, but they like to take pictures at green screens, paint the mural, discovering the House of Wax and hug furries. Especially the last thing.. my Geeklings adore furries, my youngest as long as they don't talk. I had two great days with them. Pieces of their costumes got lost along the way, which was good lesson. Next time I will make the outfits even less complex. My eldest already knows she wants to be a junior furry, and I ordered ears and a tail for her already. We are looking forward to the next edition of the DCC in March!
