Last weekend I attended MileHiCon here in Denver. It was my first fan-focused con, though it also caters to writers. I went to amazing panels, bought fun jewelry, and generally had a blast. I also cosplayed for the first time! I’ve wanted to for a while, and I’m so glad I finally did. I chose Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy 7. She’s my second favorite character, after Sephiroth (of course). I attended with Christine, and we did a couple of photo shoots to document our hard work. We put a lot of effort into our costumes (especially Christine–so go check out her blog post and amazing pictures), so we deserved to indulge in a little bit of vanity. We took some pictures on the first day, then brought my DSLR on the second day for more. The weather was really nice the first day, and freezing the second. We were so cold, but it was worth it for all the great pics.
Cosplay is so much fun. I might’ve caught the bug.
