Thought Bubble 2013 Pictures  
Rather than post them twice, TricksyLiesmith (aka @TricksyLiesmith aka that girl I also went to see Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer with this year, why yes 2013 has been fantastical) posted a bunch of cracking photos from Thought Bubble, including me, her, and franztastisch cosplaying, on tumblr HERE and HERE. I already rambled on about it here but seriously, so much fun and comics people are so damn lovely.

You and franztastich look amaze! Any more cosplay plans for the future?

Thanking you! Well I'm definitely going to more cons, and I do love cosplaying at them, so yep :D Manchester next summer again and Thought Bubble again are on the cards. No idea what I'm gonna go as though yet.

I love the idea of group cosplays, but not people like to go as characters that they identify with and not all of us share fandoms. I suggested to Laura today that some group should do a Death cosplay - Ginny from Pretty Deadly, Sandman's Death, Discworld's Death, Death from East of West...

I would definitely do a Discworld's Death cosplay. One of my favorite characters!

I'll have to look at those from an airport lounge somewhere -- as it turns out, my work computer prohibits access to Tumblr. Probably just as well; coffee break's over. Look forward to seeing those; I am SO jealous of the people you met. I would have brought some of my comics for Aja and Fraction to autograph ...

Ciao for now.

My computer at work doesn't like a lot of things too. Some it forbids access to and some the browser is too old to support lol.

I am so very, very lucky in who I've gotten to meet this year!!! I didn't know what to take with me, and I didn't want to be dragging a ton of stuff around Leeds, so Fracton and Aja signed my Hawkeye #1 comic. I'm wary of asking for lots of things to be signed, because I feel mean on them and on people behind me, but really I could have taken more than that. Really I more wanted to get a chance to say hi that ge signiatures though, so what I got signed made my heart happy. I should photograph them really, becuase Aja did a doodle and Fraction amended it...

Finally saw the photos -- you guys look great!!! Isn't it fun meeting people you've chatted online with? And yes, it's a bit scary but you do get a good sense of who people are based on their writing and comments. I've met Frea_O and Shenshen (in fact, I'm meeting Shen again tomorrow morning, in Frankfurt, on my way to Mumbai) and it's been a total blast. One of my fellow Voyager fans is now one of my closest friends; she's come up to visit and and we've had a couple of holidays together with my kidlet. So, yeah. The internet does bring the world closer!

Thanking you!!! And it really is :D I'm looking that I have geeky friends offline too, but they're not always in the same fandoms, or the same corners of those fandoms. More than ever I wish we could have a bar meet up. Hope you had fun with Shen!

I do find it interesting that things seem to have gone from being careful who you meet on the internet because no one is who they say they are, to my friends live on the internet (but sure, I'm careful, they don't really know my person details), to they're my friends and I have/will meet them, they're real people. Or at least there seems to have been that progression in views of meeting people online. Like how many more people seem to use online dating, or confess to using online dating. I dunno. Just interesting :) /end ramble

Those are some spiffy costumes all around!

Cheers! I can't get over Laura's cloak and franztastisch's nifty jacket :D
