she’s not about what’s right, she’s about what’s right now
Day one of recovering from Edmonton Expo…
I was so busy, I hardly took any pictures over the weekend! I didn’t buy many things, but I did do a lot of walking. I’m still sore, haha. I just wore lolita on the Saturday, but I cosplayed Merrill on Sunday. I almost wish I cosplayed Merrill on Saturday instead, there were so many Dragon Age cosplayers!
The Dragon Age Inquistion panels were really nice and I was surprised that they released some new info and images exclusively at the con (at the time)! The Mass Effect panel was a bit more of a Q&A than anything which I was a bit sad about, but it was still enjoyable! I had a lot of conversations with people from Bioware, including Fernando Melo and many others. I really liked how they were so approachable and really liked listening to fans blabble about what they’re excited for and what they love about the series.
I finally met Teadrunktailor! She is so friendly and nice, haha. I think I may have met her before at Calgary Expo, but it must have been very brief or something. Her Dragonlance cosplay is amazing! I’m still so impressed by the construction. I’m just blown away by how crisp and well done the seams and weathering are! I wish I had a chance to see her Loghain close up so I could see the details with that one, haha.
I also met Listlesswarrior,who is so sweet! Her Anders is just wonderful and she was so fun to chat with! Her costume had so many little things that made it perfect, including a Ser Pounce-a-lot!! The staff was also very neat and looks so identical to the one in game!
I found it very funny that the three of us cosplayed three of the most misunderstood characters in the series, haha. Later on the Sunday I had a photographer completely go crazy over my Merrill costume. I’ve never met anyone else who loves her that much! He offered a free photoshoot, which I am so happy about. I can’t wait to see the photos! I really enjoyed meeting everyone new and seeing old friends as well! I spent almost all of Sunday with my babes Liz & Emily, which I will gladly do again, haha. (Can’t wait for Calgary Expo!)
I thoroughly enjoyed this weekend. The con was much nicer and hugely improved since the first year, but there is still a lot they can improve on - namely the artist alley and weapons/prop policy! I think next year I may just go exclusively on the Saturday but we’ll see.

"What I am trying to say, is that I trust you. I am comfortable around you. I know that you will be there when I need you. You are our leader, and my friend, and sometimes, I think that maybe we could be more than that… Maker… look at me, stumbling over my words like an ill-educated peasant girl. Some bard I am…”
One part down-to-earth, one part selfless nobility, two parts crazy, and you season liberally with wild falsehoods. You let that percolate through a good audience for a while, and when it’s done, you’ve got your hero.
Lyrium carries a different meaning from person to person—a magister’s brand, a dwarf’s distant history, a brother’s birthright, and a father’s burden. It runs blue beneath the skin of everyone it touches. Some, it poisons. Others, it gives the power to save or destroy.
