Sci-Fi Valley Con (Picture Heavy)

Hello, hello, hello!!! Those of you who have been with me from the start know how much of a huge dork I am! So it shouldn't surprise you at all that I went to our local sci-fi con this past weekend ... or that I dressed up. :)

This is a little picture heavy (edit: a lot picture heavy), but I wanted to share my excitement and pictures with any who might be interested. For those who aren't here's a pic of my nails done for the con using my Spellbound Nails Leave the Brakes On, Holo Back Girl!, Carbon Copy, and lots of acrylic paint. I apologize for the bad picture quality but I stayed up late painting them. There's a slightly better pic in one of the collages below.

Click through break to see it all.

The con was a 3 day event but I could only make it for Saturday and Sunday. So I planned two costumes based around Doctor Who. I decided I wanted to be Eleven, and went ahead and found or put together some images and then built my costumes around them.

I needed a fez and a bowtie for both outfits and I decided it would be simpler to just craft them myself.

Saturday's Outfit
Fez: (black poster board, red felt, & lots of glue)
Tassel: Tapestry Tread
Headband: Walmart
Bowtie: Handmade (felt, elastic & glue)
Top: Sears (Metaphor)
Suspenders: Hot Topic
Shorts: Walmart (No Boundaries)
Tights: Walmart
Sonic Screwdriver: Hot Topic (Eleven's screwdriver)
Shoes: Charles Albert (second hand)

Sunday's Outfit
Fez, Tassel, Headband: See above
Dress: Hot Topic (Eleven) 
Sonic Screwdriver: Hot Topic (Eleven)
Tights: Walmart
Shoes: Charles Albert (second hand)

Saturday my niece and I went. She dressed as Tris from Divergent and got a lot of attention over her Divergent temporary tattoos. :)

On Sunday I went with the boyfriend. It was a ton of fun. <3

And now in an attempt to keep things short ... slightly shorter? I put together a few collages of our time at the con. Enjoy!!

And the goodies I bought ... or that were bought for me. ;)

And my most favorite-est things from the con are my prints of me with the Tardis in both my costumes. The first one I will apologize for. I didn't pay to have the print sent to my email so I had to take a picture of it through the plastic and it reflected. I learned my lesson with Sunday's Tardis pic and had it email to me as well.

I attempted the same pose and think I did wonderfully. I was a little sad to learn that K-9 was on loan for Saturday only so I couldn't get him in the second picture but I love it best anyway.

I had an amazing time, and I'm already planning next year's costume ... or Halloween's costume if I can't wait that long lol.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my time at the con. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Until next time,


  1. Love this post and pix, so fun!

  2. Aww your costumes were adorable! I hope you had a lot of fun. I really like the little bag you got and the last print, my wife would love it. She's a huge HQ fan.

    1. Thanks hun!! It was so great! I really wish you gals lived closer. I think we could have a grand ol' time. :( The boyfriend has made mentions of taking me to a few more cons this year so my HQ costume is being put together quicker than I expected and with a few changes but I think it's gonna come together amazingly ... if I don't bankrupt myself buying the essentials I can't make lol.
