Posting from happy Mexico right now! I'm here this weekend as a Guest at Mottocon, a small but packed and adorable convention near Monterrey, Mexico. Though the event is only Saturday and Sunday, I flew here on Thursday to spend time with my friends Faustino and Alesa, and their wonderful family. We went to the movies (where the chairs are reclining couches and you can order sushi and a martini from your seat lol), shopping and visited Alesa's dance studio and esoteric store. Yesterday I wore Black Cat to Mottocon and did a surprisingly refreshing Q&A session, where many people asked good questions and made me feel very welcome. I hung out at the CosplayMix magazine booth where I signed copies with my cover and took photos with the attendees. Coming from the States, it's a completely different experience to cosplay in Mexico.
Today I'll be wearing Dawn (sans wings) and doing a makeup workshop and judging their costume contest. I won't be leaving till Tuesday afternoon so tomorrow we have a free day to go shopping and to a Spa. I've never been! Exciting.
After Mexico I don't have a show till Saboten Con on Halloween weekend. I plan to straighten up the house a lot, especially by sewing room which has been through a hurricane it seems. Around the 20th we're driving down to Orlando to visit friends and go to Halloween Horror Nights. I am so happy to be going on a non-con related trip and have no obligations or work haha.
I'll make a separate post about Saboten Con once it gets closer to the date and I have my schedule sorted out.
