In the beginning of last week I got a visitor aaaaaaaaaaall the way from Italy! JadeFelt, one of my awesome assassin minions, decided to come and pay me a visit i my home town a few days before we go to GameX/Comicon 2015! 😀 ❤ I live in a really smal town so there is not really much to see but I gave her a tour of our town, took her to her firs swedish fika, we played games, watched movies and had a great time!
Then on Thursday it was time to go to Stockholm for the con on friday! We were gonna have kind of a stream family meetup at the con so I was really exited and a bit nervous to meet everyone. But omg everyone is just as awesome IRL as they are in the stream chat! Thank you so much for coming to meet me and eachother guys! I had a great wekeend! I love you all! ❤

There were ALOT of awesome cosplayers at the con! I posted tons of photos on my facebook, CLICK HERE to see them all! ^^
In my opinion the con was good BUT there were not enough games! 😦 The games aspect of GameX/Comicon were really small, not enough to play or to buy! 😦 But it was still a great experience and I had so much fun! ^^ Hanging out at the con, we went to a halloween party in Stockholm, we got a bit lost tryig to go back to the hotel because of lying signs and a GPS that told us to go in circles (left, left, left) ;D, played games in the hotelroom.. Summary: Great weekend! ❤ Already looking forward to next year! ^^ ❤
On monday the con was over but me, Peter, Jade and DragonDalek still had one day left to spend in Stockholm so the awesome Likilato offered to give us a mini tour! First we went to visit a gamestore in I’ve wanted to visit for a long time, Stockholm’s Serie & Skivhandel! A small and very cosy store FILLED with games! If you are lucky enough to live in the Stockholm area you have to pay it a visit! So many games and such a nice staff and owner! ❤ Oh, don’t forget to check out his instagram!
We also played LaserTag! (I now know I can’t aim at all IRL) xD It was quite a workout tho! I kida wish we had one in our town maybe I could get some exercise! xD We also stopped by a place that had some pinball machines! 😀
Then we went to Webbhallen that probably has the coolest game themed interior design possibible! :O ❤ Games built into the tables, Metal Slug wall and screens on the wall showing streams! 😀
BEST TOILET EVVAH!!! ❤
I really wanted that Journey paintig! So amazing! ❤ And of course the Grim Fandango one too! Both would look really good on one of my walls! 😀
Blue Potion Cafe! 😀 I wish my kitchen looked like Minecraft! xD ❤ Oh and I stared talkig briefly to a guy sitting next to the counter here and working on a game, if there is a small chanse you are reading this I totally forgot to say: Good luck with your game! It’s gonna be great! 😀
Loved the Portal hallway! And they had twikies at the cafe so we had to try them! ^^
And thank you so much to the awesome Webbhallen employee that gave me some Assassins Creed Syndicate posters and pillar! And of course thanks to Likilato for asking if they had anythig they didn’t need anymore of course! 😀
We had never tried Starbucks so as an ending to the tour we just had to try it! It was amazing! :3
After an awesome weekend together it was time to go home! I’m gonna miss all of you but atleast we see eachother in the stream! ^^ And I’m gonna start saving for next years GameX right way so I have more to spend, there was so much stuff I wish I could have bought! But I didn’t go home emptyhanded, here is the loot I got this weekend! 😀 ❤
On gameX I adopted a kitty and a little batman! ^^
Jade also bought me these as a gift! Thank you so much! ❤ I love them! You are so sweet!!! (I did find a space for it btw!) xD ❤ ❤ ❤
At Stockholm’s Serie & Skivhandel I really wanted to buy EVERYTHING! xD But this I what I came home with!
When I buy games I often go by what the front looks like, does it have a cool cover? SOLD! xD So I really couldn’t resist Utopia! The cover image is so amazing and well done! You can really tell someone put alot of work and heart into making it! ❤ Betrayal just sounded cool so I got that one too! 😀
I also got Bedlam with the overlay and box for the Vectrex, a new Dreamcast since mine is kinda broken, The Ottifants for Sega Master System, Ecco the Dolfin for Sega Megadrive, Heavenly Sword for Ps3 and the swedish version of Chicken Little for ps2! (It was only 10 sek (Like 1$) so I thought it could come home with me too! Haha!)
I had a great time and I can’t wait until next year! Everyone start saving NOW so we can have a even bigger stream family meetup next year! ^^ ❤
Oh, btw… Have I ever told you guys how difficult it is to take pictures of stuff in an apartment that has 3 cats i it?? xD Well I made 2 mini comics to illustrate! xD
After!!! Haha! I was feeling a bit feline today! So I decided to try out my cat/khajiit nose! ^^ I still don’t know how to face paint myself as a cat… but I guess it turned out ok! I’m planning to do a photoshoot in my khajiit cosplay so I need to practice a bit first! ^^ Here are a ton of pictures! xD Tonight I’m gonna continue my struggle in Rouge Legacy, I start streaming at 19.00! (swedish time) Stop by and say hi if you want, just follow this link to get to my Twitch! ^^ ((Maybe I should wear this sometime when I stream??? What do you think? XD )
I didn’t really get alot of pictures of my cosplay at GameX to show you guys, all though I am planning a photo shoot somewhere in the near future but until then I thought I would at least show some pictures of the finished armor parts! =) Ok! Here we go!
The Jagged Crown and Female Dragonscale Armor Set!
Since I didn’t have any time left over before the con to make any kind of weapon my friend made this Steel Dagger for me as a suprise! (the same guy that made the amazing buster sword I showed you in the gameX update!) What a friend! :’) (THANKS AGAIN!)
Finally!! THE GAMEX UPDATE! Woooooo! xD GameX this year got a bit hectic to say the least. The cosplay was not done, I had just gotten a slipped disc and lumbago (was eating alooot of painkillers) and worst of all my sweet little kitty cat Gin got sick the day before we were leaving for Stockholm. His sickness was not so serious (yet…. =P ) He had crystals in his urine making it hard for him to… do his buissness! (he had it once before and he got fine right after the treatment) so we took him to the vet. That night I worked so hard to finish my cosplay but it was soo hard while Gin was not feeling so good, I keept one eye on the cosplay and the other on him so I’ve might not have been working as fast as I could have! =P Somewhere at 5 or 6 am I gave up and said “I will bring everything with me and finish it at the hotel”. I was so tired from stress and worry so I just needed a few hours of sleep…
At around noon we packed the car full of cosplay stuff, and a litte luggage 😉 I kissed my kitty-cats good bye and then it was go time! We were off to stockholm and gameX 2013! This was a thursday, the 31st of oktober and we were staying for the whole con, until 3rd november! We were so exited! My friend had also built a cosplay, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy Crisis Core and it was awesome (and finished =P ) so I was a bit stressed out about getting mine done on time and having time to enjoy the con of course! ^^ There was a cosplay contest on friday and we were a little tempted to try our luck there, but first I needed a finished cosplay! x)
We arrived at the hotel and quickly carried our luggage up to our room, then we ran down to finally check out this years gameX. We always stay at an awesome hotel called Victoria Tower sitting riiiight next to where GameX is! So convenient! ^^ At first glanze is was awesome, then we notised how small it was compared to past years, nintendo wasn’t ever there :O And sadly not many cosplayers at all the first day but there was alot of games to try! And swedens first chance to try the PS4! (Woohoo) And there were alot of merchandise! Nerd-heaven! xD
We also tried to find out more about the cosplay contest and were to sign up but no one seemed to know anything, not even the people in the cosplay booth! (haha) Then finally we found someone who said “just be there before the contest starts at 17.30 and it’s fine” Fair enough! ^^ We didn’t stay the whole first day because someone had a cosplay to finish =P I had to make and put on all the fake leather straps to make all the parts stick to me. Was alot more work than I imagined it would be and I stayed up until 1 or 2 am before I went to sleep..
Cosplay day! Yay! I was still not done but I was sooo close that I could taste it! No way it would not get done, maybe an hour or two then it was gonna be finished! So after some yummy hotel breakfast I continued working. That’s when I get a phonecall from my dad, he had promised to watch over Gin for me, and he had gotten some complications from the treatment and was getting worse and worse. This made things alot harder! I was so worried and could not focus at all! This caused in things taking more time than it should have but after a few hours I was upto that point when I was gluing the last pice of strip on the last armor piece.. and what happens? I burn my fingers on hot glue that just came out of the glue gun! I was gonna put some preassure on the strip while the glue dried and it must have slipped out on the sides of the strip… IT HURT LIKE “#%&! x(
So here I was, so worried about my kitty I just could cry, had just burned two fingers on my left hand, and I still needed to put on my cat nose, do all of my cat makeup, put in the cat eye lenses and help my friend with his Zack hair.. all using one hand =P The burnt hand wanted to kill my fingers unless I kept it under cold water! x( After alot of effort and stress we were finally both done!! Yaay! 😀
My makeup was terrible (somehow the grey color turned blue when it dried! xD ) and everything had been done while in panic mode but I was so happy to be done at last and at around 17.00 we hurried down to the con to go enter the contest. When we arrived we found the place of the contest at maybe 17.10-17.15 only to find out we could not enter! We were too late! 😦 “If you had gotten here like 10 minutes ago you could have entered, sorry!” Omg, I was so sad, so close and all because I messed up and burnt my fingers!!!!!!! x( *sob* Oh well, not much to do about it so we just watched show and all the amazing cosplayers, I never would have won but it would have been fun to at least try! It was too dark to take any pictures in there but I caught some of them on camera afterwards! ^^ (Warning! Alot of Pictures) xD
Look! look! I found another Skyrim cosplayer! 😀 And she picked a figth! :O Or was it me? 😉 Don’t remember! *lol* We ended up having alot of fun even though we missed the contest. Still I was very worried about Gin, I even thought about leaving Stockholm early and go home to him, but when we got back to our hotel room that night my dad called and said Gin had been “hospitalized” at the vet and he would not get to come home until sunday, same day we were gonna get home again. So since me going home would not make any difference, I stayed.
We played some games, met some awesome cosplayers and me and my friend got into some more fights! ;D
Don’t worry, no one was harmed! 😉 And we met Lightning again, her cosplay was amazing! :O
And I just have to show off my friends AWESOME buster sword that he made! Made out of wood! :O It’s so pretty! :’D
The last day of the con, I was not able to wear my cosplay today because we had to leave our hotel room at noon, so if I put it on I had no place to get it all off for the car ride home. But I at least wore the jagged crown! Today there was supposed to be a cosplay catwalk but it was canceled, instead there was a mini photo shoot!
As the big Assassins Creed fan girl that I am I just had to get a picture with this awesome banner!
Then out of nowhere I was ambushed! By an assassin! :O (I was not very sad about that as you can see!)
Then a Soldier came to my rescue and handed me a gun! ^^
(Yeah I know I’m not holding it right! My friend keeps nagging me about it! lol ;D But I never held a gun before, cut me some slack will ya! ^^)
I guess this wraps up my GameX/Cosplay post! Finally huh?? =) We had alot of fun and I can’t wait until GameX 2014! Kinda hoping it gets bigger again though! ^^
Gaaaaaah! I have some SeRiOuS gaming withdrawal symptoms.. I miss playing videogames sooooo much! x( I just haven’t had the time cuz I went all in with the cosplay… witch has been alot of fun too but holy crap do I miss gaming! The last game I played was mass effect 2, that was like ages ago! Or at least like 2 months. I even dream about games! Last night I dreamt I was a tetris block (what does that even mean?? x) )
At least I have games all around me being played I can glance at.. The boyfriend is playing saints row 4 (witch looks awesome btw!) My sister is playing league of legends (streaming btw!) And my dad is playing Assassins Creed 3 (We still live at my dads due to the water damage at our place) And then we have me, building my cosplay. All of us, in the same room, doing our thing! 🙂
I have now made the shoulder thingys, it was hard and they did not really turn out the way I wanted them to… but frankly, with 4 days to go, I can’t really start being picky!
Ok, some stuff have happened.. Do you want the good or the bad news first? Let’s go with the bad! So, about 1 -1 1/2 months ago I started to feel a pain in my back, over time it got worse and worse! 2 days ago it got really bad and I had to go to the hospital! 😦 Turned out I had a herniated disc and lumbago! This kind of threatens my cosplaying a bit… : P
But fear not! Here comes the good news! 😀 The doctor gave me aloooooooot of painkillers! x) So I’m not giving up, I’m still gonna finnish the cosplay and try with all my might to make it happen! I’ll be a half drugged khajiit if I have to! Some more good news is that I’ve started to paint all the armor parts!
6 days to go! I’ll show you some more progress tomorrow!
These past few days has been a bit “boring” in the cosplay making departement. (Only rasping and shaping the armor parts) So now I have finally finnished spray painting all the “metallic” parts and putting on clay! (Yay!) Only a bit of paint and then they are done! ^^
And the helmet has finally gotten some paint and clay!
(It’s actually a dog toy in the form if a squeaky snake) I’ll have to alter it for a bit, remove the “squeakers” and stuff it with filling then it’s gonna be perfect! I just love the pattern! ^^
