CCEE Wrap Up

Beetle Autumn
The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo 2009 was AMAZING fun and I'm so glad I went!

Of course, I missed almost all of the celebrities and guests and panels as I'm a costumer above all and my huge thing was to finally debut my targ. And I really couldn't have asked for better.

Almost everyone loved Toby and I got some great video footage. He even won in the costume competition and it feels great to have the judges shake my hand as I unsuited and tell me I had done an excellent job :D

As always there are things to fix but I feel super accomplished to have made and worn a quad suit and apparently not done a totally horrible job at either of those. And now using what I have learned from this I can only do it better! I have many many plans for Toby in the future :D

I will be make a new journal entry with targ photos as well as video right after this one! I finished editing the videos and now just have to wait until Youtube finishes their maintenance and lets me upload XD

Special shoutouts to:
Fallout for hanging onto my camcorder and filming all the videos!
Shenshen for being my Klingon handler both days (and for doing an excellent job at it!)
Hyokenseisou for letting me mooch off your dealer's table and letting us stay the night (and for being amazing). Grats on your win!

Aw, I'm sorry I missed seeing you! I ended up only going on the Sunday, but I did see some pictures of your Targ. I am still in awe of your craftsmanship! Congrats on winning the costume competition!

That's awesome that it worked out so well!!! Shame I couldn't make it, I've always wanted to go to an event like this. Plus I'd love the chance to see one of your suits :)
