Days Til DragonCon

Days Til DragonCon – Halfway There

Hey there cosplay fans – we are entering the home stretch of our Days ‘Til DragonCon event, and boy the stress is starting to show. With my initial summary, I noted that the cosplayers were pretty stress free and confident in their plans for cosplay domination – and as time has gone on, the stress is mounting and things are starting to come apart at the seams.

We have lost one of our contestants: Jacqueline Goehner, most known for her Witchblade cosplay, has had to withdraw due to scheduling demands along with wanting to keep a few of her build methods for her upcoming DragonCon project top-secret – so we wish her the best and still look forward to seeing her creations in August! Go get ’em, Jacqueline!


Days Til Dragoncon - Remaining Cosplayers


Who will be next? Who will remain? Place your bets now, folks, because our ponies are getting tired. As the weeks have gone on – you can see panic setting in on a few whose supplies havent arrived in a timely manner, have had other obligations and set backs, or whose normal jobs are demanding more of their time than intended. Five weeks are gone. Five weeks remain. We are inside the 30ish day mark until we are at DragonCon and we are quickly running out of days. Some cosplayers are already mentioning ‘scrap plans’ for deciding which costumes to strike from their rosters as build pressure mounts.

Who will cut items? What will be cut? Stay tuned for the Week 5 Followup Friday to see where everyone stands!
