Lonestar Mensa Gathering 2014
I've been sitting on a little secret for a while, but I think now is a great time to share! I was contacted by the Vice President of Lonestar Mensa in regards to their upcoming regional gathering. I was invited to be a guest presenter, and they wanted me to present about Cosplay. I was absolutely shocked! I've never been asked to do something like this and I am beyond excited! To sort of celebrate this invitation, I am working on a brand new Zatanna costume that I will be revealing at the actual gathering.
The theme of this gathering is "Playtime". They are encouraging attendees to dress in costume. I will be in my costume but I will also be bringing items with me for my presentation. I'll have my laptop to actually do the presentation but I will also be bringing several cosplay wigs, armour, and weapons I've made. I am so excited for this event. Not only because I get to dress up again, but because I get to share my obsession with people who may or may not know what Cosplay is all about!
My presentation will be on Saturday, August 30th at 2:00pm. Anyone attending this Lonestar Mensa Regional Gathering, I'm so excited to see and meet you all! If you see me, feel free to stop me and say hi, take a photo, and talk to me!
After the event I will post as many pictures as I can, but I will also post several updates in the coming days both on my Zatanna cosplay (only bits & pieces, the whole shebang will be shown after the event), as well as progress on one of the weapons I am making for demonstration purposes.
