Hey guys! Here is my mandatory journal of outtakes and shenanigans from MetroCon last weekend! I went with my boyfriend Tyler on Saturday and we cosplayed Celes Chere and Locke Cole from FFVI. I made both of our costumes in about a week before the con. Amazingly (and sadly) we didn't have many derpy photos in our giant batch, which means we're doing something right! (but it also means I don't have as much to put here xD) These are the things I am capable of accomplishing when my photographer isn't also my heterosexual life partner who makes me laugh during shoots I'm looking at you so hard right now ~Lissinater , I luv u bby
We got to the con around noon and immediately participated in a photoshoot with the lovely Taza.
I was constantly fixing up Tyler's costume. Our friend Dave sat about and kindly carried our things for us. It was hot as hell that afternoon, but we endured.

"Come with me, and you'll be
in a wORLD OF PURE IMAGINATIOOON"
After that shoot was over, we spent our time meandering around the convention center because we were too cheap to actually buy a pass and go to the events. We encountered various cosplay friends and hung out until our next photoshoot with . Her camera was magical and kept giving our pictures this really snazzy golden lighting, which is just PERFECT for FFVI.

Tyler and I kept making each other laugh in pictures. We'd be posing with our serious faces on, when suddenly...

And now, an excerpt from eharmony
"I'm not like all the other Mandalorians. I like fine dining and breathing. I'm looking for that special lady who will make me feel like re-enacting the romantic flying scene from Titanic."

And in that moment, I swear I was a severed head
An accurate representation of the relationship between Tyler and I
I was so done with trying to make myself look attractive at this point
