Jungle Girl at DragonCon 2010

Hello Everyone,

Wow I haven't been to this blog in over a year! SHAME ON ME! And yes, Lyuba-chan is still me. I didn't realize right away that I can create more than one blog under the same user name, so that's why I have two 'different' contributors. I can't stand having to log in under different account every time, so I just added my main profile as a contributor. When I get back home from work I'll look into trying to combine my profiles, and hopefully it will be possible. :)

I haven't been cosplaying much in 2009 or 2010, mostly because I'm unhappy with myself right now. Or getting burned out on convention going because I feel like I've seen it all already. And it's too crowded anyway, so I can't even get into any panels. However, that said I did go to DragonCon for the first time last September, and of course I had to cosplay.

Enter my version of Jungle Girl. You might remember this post from London Film and Comic Con and wonder why didn't I wear the wig again. Because I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT! It looks so fake when I was going for a natural blonde hair color. I ordered a color wheel with wig color examples from Cosworx, so hopefully the next wig I buy will be exactly what I'm looking for. Anyways, because of that reason I decided to go with my natural hair.

Mandatory Pin-up pose. Because I'm into Pin-ups :)

As you can see, I didn't take that many photos mainly because I was so not impressed with the convention that I didn't want to take any photos. I know some of you might think I'm crazy for thinking that, but really I didn't care that much for DragonCon. The highlight of my trip was hanging out with friends and meeting some of The Guiild cast.

But it looks like I will give conventions another chance. In April I plan on going to Kapow Comic Con because I really want to meet Liam Sharp. Of course that means wearing my Red Sonja costume :)
