Feb Update

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 21, 2014, 7:13 AM



Ramblings...



Hello all! I've been really terrible in keeping my dA updated, so my apologies for that! I'm more active on Tumblr, and there are regular updates being posted to the Parlé Facebook www.facebook.com/OfficialParle…

But yes! 2014! Let's see what we're up to....

Date: 1-2nd March

Event: Larp Awareness Party, Leicester UK
Website: www.facebook.com/events/169097…
Description:
I will be at this event to help promote a LARP system starting this year called The Vale, at which Jenn and I will be playing NPC characters. This system is for players aged 18 and over. If you are interested, come and see me at the Larp Awareness Party, or visit the website for the game: majesticoaklrp.co.uk/vale/

Date: 27-30th March
Event: Sci-Fi Weekender, North Wales UK
Website: www.scifiweekender.com/
Description: Myself, Jenn, and a bunch of other friendlings will be going to SFW as our first "proper" outing for our Dwarves! This is the event we're aiming to get the costumes done as best we can by. The group will include dwarves, elves, a hobbit and a wizard. To say we're excited about this is a total understatement. This is one of mine and Jenn's favourite events of the year, so we hope to see some of you there!

Date: 25-27th April
Event: Banzaicon, Larvik NO
Website: www.banzaicon.net/
Description: Myself, Jenn and Amala will be attending this awesome convention as cosplay guests! We're really excited to be attending this event for the first time, and want to spend as much time with our followers as possible. So, please check out the website if you're based in Norway (or fancy travelling there!) and we look forward to meeting you!

Date: 11-13th July
Event: Metrocon, Florida USA
Website: metroconventions.com/
Description: We were really worried we may not be able to attend Metrocon this year due to financial reasons, but the convention have made it happen for us! Hurrah! This year will just be myself and Jenn, but we're going to do all we can to make it a really great year! We hope to have some costumes that we've not worn to Metrocon before, as well as old favourites. We plan to spend as much of our time on the con floor as possible to really make the most of our time at Metrocon! 

Date: 4-7th September
Event: Alcon, Leicester UK
Website: www.alcon.org.uk/
Description: Our favourite UK event of the year! Another year at Alcon for the whole Parlé crew, with a bunch of panels and drinking and lord only knows what else. If we decide to do another Group Cosplay Day, we'll let you all know closer to the time! Woo!!

Date: 19-21st September
Event: J-Con, Derby UK
Website: www.j-con.co.uk/
Description: This is our second year returning to J-Con, after a fantastic experience in 2013! I believe they plan to make us work for our keep, with panels and Q&A's and judging contests... You'll see a lot of us over that weekend!




I thiiiiiiiiiiiiink that's it for our con schedule so far!
It's gonna be a busy year...

Like, it's been a serious while! A lot has happened, such as...

- Metrocon! Which was amazing. Another fantastic year where we met some fantastic people! Will we be back next year? Honestly, we cannot say. We're not sure we can continue to afford the flight costs, so it's up in the air right now.

- Abunaicon! Dutch people are crazy. Nuff said. <3

- Alcon! Another amazing weekend! We were kinda zoned out for some of it, due to the fact we were so close to getting our house... but still an amazingly fun event.

- HOUSE! Which we have. And despite the boiler problems, everything is now finally going smoothly thanks to you guys!

- JCon! Our first time at this event, and damn it was fun! Definitely worth doing, and hopefully we'll be back next year!

So... yeah. It's been kinda busy to say the least!

I've Neglected my dA!

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 3, 2013, 5:48 AM



Ramblings...



Purely because I haven't had much to post here! 
SO HERE IS AN UPDATE ABOUT EVERYTHING!

-------CONVENTIONS-------
The upcoming cons and events for us are:

6 July - LONDON FILM AND COMIC CON www.londonfilmandcomiccon.com/

     Panel at 12 noon on the cosplay stage!

26-28 July - METROCON, FL USA  metroconventions.com/
     All panels are listed on the panel system!

23-25 August - ABUNAICON, Netherlands www.abunaicon.nl/
     Not sure on our panel times, but we're doing a fair few, and hosting the fashion show!

5-8 September - ALCON, UK www.alcon.org.uk/
     Panels, late night panels etc will be happening.... Check the con book!

21-22 September - J-CON UK www.j-con.co.uk/
     Panels and hanging out galore, with some more of the Parlé crew in tow!

10-12 January - ANIME LOS ANGELES www.animelosangeles.org/ala/
     Panels and events TBC



-------MOVING HOUSE-------
JENN AND I HAVE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

It's all been a bit mental, but if everything goes well we hope to move in around August time. After that, and we are settled and whatnot, VIDEOS WILL HAPPEN AGAIN! With time on our hands and a REAL space to film in, we'll be churning out videos for your viewing pleasure once more.

We're really going to be depending on whatever income we can get during this time, so getting videos up, as well as encouraging t-shirt sales and the like will be very high on our agenda. Speaking of making money...


-------SELLING MY CHAKRAMS-------
This IS happening. They are ready to go. I will get them listed on ebay VERY soon, and will post a video announcing it. I hope to ship them off before I leave for Metrocon on the 15th :)




THAT IS ALL FOR NOW. I have to get back to work. DFTBA! x

It's so quiet...

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 19, 2013, 2:51 AM



Ramblings...



Sorry for the lack of activity here! I've been busy XD

It's been a bit of a mental start to 2013, with Jenn getting a new job, a bunch of birthdays and events, and a lack of money forever looming overhead!

I've mostly been busy working on my costume and kit for a new LARP system I'm joining next month, so when I have some good pictures of that, I'll share them here. It's not often I will share pictures of my original characters on deviantART (in fact, I don't think I've ever done it), but I'm really proud of the kit for this. A bunch of Parlé are all joining the same system, so hopefully we can get a few good shots before time in!

Here's a preview of the costume, for those interested...

Kendra

On the con-front, things are less busy than usual, due to clashing events, and one or two that we usually attend for fun that we're opting out of this year. We did London Anime Con at the start of the month, which was a fantastic event.  Still to come is...

- SCI-FI WEEKENDER ( www.scifiweekender.com/ )
- METROCON ( metroconventions.com/ )
- ALCON ( www.alcon.org.uk/ )

A few more may get added to the list as the year progresses, but as it stands, these are the events we are attending.

That's it for now. DFTBA!

Catching Up!

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 15, 2013, 2:59 AM



Ramblings...



Sorry! I'm behind on checking my dA. I'm gonna try to catch up on my messages today :)

-------California-------
The meetup and ALA went superbly, in short!
Jenn and I want to thank everyone who came out to meet us, hugged us, had photos, gave us gifts... gah, you're all just awesome :)

Special thanks in particular go out to Chelsea and Viola (of AskEllisIRL on Tumblr), Paige (of AskKeithIRL on Tumblr) and Gurlow, for being part of our L4D panel. It wouldn't have been half as good without you guys involved!

-------Upcoming-------
The next event for Jenn and I as guests is London Anime Con, held in Central London (UK) on Feb 9th-10th. We will be attending on Saturday 9th, holding panels on...

- Cosplay Makeup (midday), including SFX Makeup, body painting, and Female-to-Male makeup tips.
- 'Cosplay Stars' panel (3pm), also featuring talented cosplayers Himezawa and Finny Attridge.
- and hosting the Cosplay Auction (7pm)

Ticket prices are £16 for the full weekend, and ranging between £4 and £9 for single days (depending on which day, and what entry time you wish to go for). Please note that this is an 18+ Convention! People under the age of 18 will not be able to enter, and ID will be checked.

We hope to see some of you there!

FB Users, I call upon thee again!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 18, 2012, 2:08 AM



Ramblings...



I got through to Round 2 of the "Sexy Cosplay Girls" Contest!

I need to call upon you lovely Facebook types once again for your help to get through to the next round! Please go to THIS LINK and hit "like"! Feel free to leave a comment too, if you want.

I've changed my entry to Judy Nails. It's not one of my most well-known cosplays, but despite that, it's one of my favourites.

Thank you in advance to everyone who votes! ^_^


-------Christmas-------
I've already posted this on my tumblr page, but we've received a fair few messages from people asking if they can send us gifts or cards for Christmas.

Jenn and I would be far more grateful if you donate the cost of your gift/card/postage to Doctors Without Borders, in honour of Parlé Productions. This way, we receive a message or eCard from each person who makes a donation, and that means far more to us. Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontiers are an amazing charity that pulls together medical staff of all ages, races, genders and religions to help those in need, no matter who they are.

The link above is for the USA site, but you can find links to the DWB/MSF webpages for your country on the website.

If you are unable to donate, perhaps due to not having a credit card, or just not having enough money, perhaps consider throwing a few loose coins into the collection tins of charities local to you. Small local charities often need your support far more than large international ones!

(On a personal note, I would ask that people do not donate to the Salvation Army, in honour of myself, Jenn, or any of Parlé, due in part to their history of anti-LGBT rights. Thank you!)



-------ALA and California------
JENN AND I ARE COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS! 8D

We may do one this weekend.

-------FB USERS-------

Firstly, were you aware that Parlé has a FB page, that sometimes gets news and updates before dA and Youtube?
You should check it out, if you haven't already! > www.facebook.com/pages/Parl%C3…


Also! I'm in a cosplay contest being run by Sexy Cosplay Girls, and need your help in the form of LIKES! Please click THIS LINK and hit LIKE on my photo. I'd love to see comments too, but they aren't required, so that's up to you. That's just for my ego ^_^

Thank you in advance!


-------ALA UPDATE-------

Regarding the Pre-Con meetup, it's looking likely that we'll be meeting in Little Tokyo. We have a few more details to iron out, but it's looking 90% likely that'll be our venue :)


That is all.

Axel Wig Sale (Take Two)

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 19, 2012, 2:23 AM



Ramblings...



THE EBAY LINK : www.ebay.co.uk/itm/28102386060…

Due to a timewaster on the previous auction, I'm putting this up for sale again. I'm imposing a strict 72 hour payment requirement, so the winner MUST pay within three days of the auction ending. If you bid on the wig, but do not win, keep an eye on your inbox anyway. If the winner doesn't pay in time, I'll offer it to the next highest bidder, and so on, until a payment is made. Basically, even if you don't win, you may still be in with a chance :)

I'll also be putting my Org Coat, and some other bits, up soonish. I'll post links when that happens.

That's all for now. DFTBA!

Eirtakon, AMFE, ALA, ALA PreCon Meet, and Selling!

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 5, 2012, 2:23 AM



Ramblings...



Lots to talk about in this one...!

-------EIRTAKON-------
eirtakon.com

THIS HAS COME AROUND SO FREAKIN' FAST!
We have our final panel times, so come along to them! We'll also just be hanging out randomly around the con, and would love to meet you all!

FRIDAY
- No Panels! We'll likely hang around The Hub.

SATURDAY
11.30am - 12.30pm, Terence Larkin room - Video Making for Youtube
1pm - 2pm, The Theatre - Improv 101
8.30pm - 9pm, The Theatre - Avengers Q&A

SUNDAY
11am - 12noon, Panel Room 1 - Q&A With Parlé
2pm - 3pm, Panel Room 2 - Crossplay and SFX Makeup
5pm - 5.30pm, The Theatre - L4D2 Q&A

The full timetable is available on the Eirtakon website. We maaaay reveal some new stuff in the Sunday 11am Q&A, but we'll see >8D


-------AMFE-------
amfe.co.uk

Jenn and I will be attending AMFE in Burton-Upon-Trent, and will be giving some cosplay talks. Check the timetable on the day for information!


-------ALA, and PreCon Meet-------
animelosangeles.org/ala/

We are STILL waiting to hear back from the convention about our panel times (and, indeed, if our panels have even been accepted! WE were meant to hear back in Mid-October, but still nothing...). We're not attending as official guests of the con, but will be there. If, for whatever reason, our panels are not accepted, we will hold meetups in public areas of the convention. We'll give you info on this as it's arranged.

We're also going to be holding a pre-con meetup, for those who cannot make ALA. This will probably be on Saturday 29th of December,  and I've had it suggested that Little Tokyo would be a good place to hold it! We're still in the process of getting this all sorted. It'd be just a general meet up and hang-out, probably involving takeout food and many photographs. Anyone would be welcome, whether you wanted to turn up in cosplay or just as yourself. When we confirm the time and place, we'll post here and announce it on Youtube.

I think that's all for now.


-------SELLING STUFF-------
I just bought a new car, and as such I'm low on pennies.
Over the next few weeks, my Axel wig (the previous sale fell though), my Organization coat, and possibly my Chakrams will be going up on ebay, along with some other bits and pieces.

Watch this space.

Kelly's Clearout Sale

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 22, 2012, 6:06 AM



Ramblings...



ALL SOLD!

Leaving this here for my reference.



I <3 MJ SHIRT SOLD - NeonInWonderland
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

Another one where I was sent two of everything in my order! This is one of the official tour shirts (for the tour that never happened :( ) from the MJ tour website. Shirt is a UK 10-12 for a close fit, smaller for a loose fit.

£8 (not inc P&P)


WIZARD ANGST SHIRT - SOLD - Jadekinzoko
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

I have two of this shirt, so this is pretty much unworn! UK size 10-12, stretchy babydoll shirt.

£10 (not inc P&P)

DEMYX TIME HIGH SCHOOL "ZEXION" SHIRT - SOLD - PoisonedAnime
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App
Back: i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…
Side: i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…

Worn by Zexion in our "High School Musical" Demyx Time parody. This shirt is designed to be worn closed, and isn't suited for anyone over a UK Size 10. However, if you intend to wear it open, it's pretty much free-size, I suppose! All the straps and fastenings are still intact, and due to rarely being worn, this shirt is in near perfect condition.

£30 (not inc. P&P)


RED STRIPED JUMPER - SOLD - PoisonedAnime
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

Barely worn, as the sleeves were a little short on me. Ideal for a UK size 10, though would stretch to a 12 (and sit a little looser on smaller sizes).

£5 (not inc P&P)

BLACK SATIN UNDERBUST CORSET SOLD - UnoriginalLife
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

And from behind: i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…

My dummy is set to my size (UK 10-12) so you can see how the lacing fits for that size. It's probably suited so someone a little smaller than myself if you want the lacing to be almost closed. The bones in this are acrylic, so not suited to tight-lacing. This is an 'appearances only' corset, so to speak!

£5 (not inc. P&P)

IRIDESCENT CORSET SOLD - UnoriginalLife
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App
And the back: i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…

For a costume that never happened. Another one with acrylic bones, for a UK Size 10-12. This has never been worn, so aside from the fact it doesn't come with lacing, it's in near perfect condition. It also came with a matching thong, if you want that too XD

£5 (not inc. P&P)

Selling Stuff and Things

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 24, 2012, 8:59 AM



Ramblings...



So, in-between conventions, cosplays, life, and my car... I'm extremely low on pennies right now. Like, for the first time in a VERY long time, I actually consider myself broke this month, which NEVER happens to me anymore. So, I'm selling a bunch of my stuff.

I was going to put it up on eBay, but I figured I'd sell what I can here first, at fixed prices.


ALL SOLD
I'm keeping this journal here for my reference until all items have been paid and shipped :)


HALLOWEEN TOWN AXEL SOLD - BloodStainedHeartles

i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…
i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…
i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…
fav.me/d1p4pfo

Including coat, cuff, and pants (not including undershirt, chain, mask, wig, chakrams, glove or boots). Because you wear this coat open, it'd probably fit anyone between a UK Size 10 - 14 (US 8-12, EU 36-40). The pants probably won't fit above a UK 12 (US 10, EU 38), but are easy enough to replace and replicate.

The coat is made from Pleather, and has a stiffened collar so that the design sticks up. There are details stitched on the coat and pants (stretch jersey fabric) in red wool. The cuffs are also pleather.

Looking for £50 (EUR62 , USD80)

D.GREY MAN LAVI COSPLAY - SOLD icarus
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…
i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…

Including jacket, badge, pants and gloves. I will also include the wig and headband for free, if I can find them! This cosplay is made from pleather, and needs a bit of repair work. The pants zipper has broken, and I replaced it with velcro and never changed it. While the jacket fits up to a UK 12 (US 10, EU 38) the pants come up a little small, and while a UK 12 can squeeze into them, they're better suited to a size below.

I have really small hands and have stitched the gloves to fit, but that can be unpicked. The excess fabric is just folded inside the glove.

Looking for £60 ( USD97, EUR75)

PINK LOLITA LEOPARDPRINT CORSET TOP SOLD - whiteraven
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…
i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…
i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l…

I've never worn this, having bought it because I thought it was so unusual, but never having occasion to put it on! It still has the tags attached! This corset-style top is unboned, and has a weird collar that sits separate to the front of the corset, but is fully attached at the back. The sleeves are gathered, flared at the ends. The shoulders are also gathered, and there are two straps and buckles at the back so you can cinch the waist, if desired.  I've never seen something quite like it, but hopefully someone out there will actually be able to wear it out or with a costume or whatever! Best for a UK 10-12 (US 8-10, EU 36-38).

Looking for £20 (USD32, EUR25)

POCKET SKIRT SOLD - Pamela

I bought this thinking "I'll lose weight SPECIFICALLY to fit in this"... and never did XD Gutted to let it go, but I just can't give up the KFC to ever fit into it" This awesome wrap around skirt has zipper pockets down the one main side panel, as well as a bunch of clip-on pockets on the other side that can be rearranged and removed at will. It's made of a soft, almost canvas-like material, and is really hard-wearing. It does up with straps, so it will fit up to a UK10  (US 8, EU 36) and smaller by perhaps a size or two, but no bigger. It's gorgeous, bought from Camden Town in London, and subsequently never worn. I can only get it on if I wear it high on my waist!

Looking for £25 (EUR31, USD40)

-------Abunaicon-------
What a great weekend we had in the Netherlands!

Abunaicon was a fantastic event for us, and went far better than we had expected! Despite some of them being early, all our panels did really well, and the cosplay contests were awesome! We met a few familiar faces, but made plenty of new friends! We really hope we can return for next year... Fingers crossed!

-------Alcon-------
And now, time for Alcon!

I'm desperately trying to get costumes finished in time, but at the moment, the line up looks to be:

Matt Miller (Saints Row 3)
Church (Red vs Blue)
Rogue (Xmen)
Tony Stark (Avengers)
Secret Cosplay (Secret stuff!)
[possibly an Xmen First Class costume..]

I *think* that's all of them! We're also doing a whole bunch of panels, listed below

THURSDAY
Bar, 9pm to 11pm == Late Night Panel with Parlé and FDP
..........The Late Night Panel is designed to be a general Q&A where 'anything goes'! Things tend to get a little crazy, and once the alcohol gets flowing, it just gets worse! Don't miss it!

FRIDAY
Talks 2, 2pm to 3pm == Body Painting, Make-up and SFX Panel with Kelly(with non-anime/bishie crossplay makeup done by Jenn)
........Covering all different types of make-up and facepaint, as well as some special fx tips regarding things such as fake beards, contact lenses, fangs etc. Jenn will also be demonstrating some crossplay makeup techniques for a 'manry male' appearance!

Bar, 5pm to 6pm == Cosplay Auction, hosted by Parlé and FDP
....... The Alcon staple Cosplay Auction, this year hosted by ourselves and the FDP chaps. I... have no idea what to expect!

SATURDAY
Talks 1, 1pm to 2pm == Video Making for Youtube with Jenn
.......Jenn tells everyone her filming and video making tips and hints, as well as shows you a bunch of before-and-after editing videos, interspersed with a butt-tonne of gifs!

Talks 2, 2pm to 3pm == Fursuitting 101 with Charlotte and Faruku!Laura
.......Charlotte and her fursuitting partner-in-crime Laura give you the low-down on how to make your own suits! NOTE: There are two fursuit panels on at Alcon, and I'm not sure if Charlotte and Laura are just doing this one, or both.... read your conbook to find out!

SUNDAY
Talks 1, 12noon to 1pm == Avengers Q&A Panel, possibly with videos!
.......The Avengers have been assembled, and are ready to take your questions! An in-character panel, where anything goes!

Talks 2, 2pm to 4pm == Parlé General Q&A
.......A general question and answer panel. Ask us anything about ourselves, our shows, cosplay, make-up, video making.... literally, anything! We may bring along some random funnies to show you!

All of this is, of course, subject to change, so check your con book when you arrive!

NOW I HAVE WORK TO FINISH BEFORE MY BOSS STRANGLES ME.

DFTBA!

ABUNAICON

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 20, 2012, 3:06 AM



Ramblings...



It's come around SO fast, and I feel totally unprepared!!

So, Abunaicon is THIS FRIDAY, and I've finally got around to deciding exactly which costumes I'm bringing... though no clue what ones I'm wearing on which days!

- Portal, Experiment 13B
- Avengers, Tony Stark
- L4D2, Ellis
- X-Men, Rogue

I haven't worn Rogue for aaages, but having tried it on again last night, I'm really excited to be wearing this costume again. She is, after all, one of my absolute favourite Marvel characters~

There is a preliminary EuroCosplay round being held at Abunaicon too, so we're expecting to see some awesome costumes at this! As Jenn and I are primarily non-Japanese/Asian origin cosplayers and choose our costumes from outside of this spectrum, we're looking forward to seeing not only some great costumes from animes and manga, but also some fantastic Western-origin costumes too!

Keep an eye on your convention schedules, and come see our panels!
"CP: Do's and Don'ts" at 10am Saturday, covering the basic Do's and Don'ts of cosplay!
"CP: General Q&A" at 15.30 on Saturday, a general question and answer panel
"CP:SFX Makeup" at 10am on Sunday, showing special effect makeup, as well as crossplay makeup!

Marvel High - RPG

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 9, 2012, 7:06 AM



Ramblings...



For those who haven't seen this on my tumblr...


Marvel High - A Marvel AU RPG
Click here to check it out!

So, I've decided to open this out to my watchers, in case it's of interest to anyone…
At the request of my mates, I set up this Marvel "high school" AU roleplaying board, and we've decided to open it up before we get started to allow others to join.

I WARN YOU NOW THAT I CAN BE A BITCH OF AN RP ADMIN.
I am very particular about the kinds of writers I want on my board, and personally will be vetting every application that comes through. I classify this as an "intermediate to advanced RP board", and 300 words per post should be a bare minimum of your abilities, as well as using good spelling and grammar.

Feel free to take a look, and feel ever freer to apply… but don't get offended if your personal style or skill isn't what I'm looking for on my board. If you can't take criticism of your writing easily, then be warned XD

There are probably a few rules and history bits I've missed, so bare with me. Also, depending how busy things get, I may be asking for help moderating. Currently, myself and Conor are adminning, but if things get to much, we may need help ^_^

Abunaicon, Alcon and Eirtakon!

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 22, 2012, 3:48 PM

Howdy y'all!

So, we have three last confirmed conventions we're attending this year... all in totally different places!

ABUNAICON
24-26th August
www.abunaicon.nl/

Held in the Netherlands, close to Eindhoven. Jenn and I are pleased to be joining Belgian cosplayers Kimi and Katja as the conventions official Cosplay Guests! This'll be our first time visiting the Netherlands, and we really hope to meet some of our followers there, as well as some new friends too!

We have a vague idea of what cosplays we will do, but need to sort some things out first. We'll confirm next month!

ALCON
6th-9th September
alcon.org.uk/

We're pleased to be returning to ALcon once again, this time causing cosplay shenanigans with not only Jenna and Lucas, but also their good friend and fellow mischief-maker Courtney! I'm certain multiple lols will ensue.

We're not sure if we'll be doing a big music video again this year... but we WILL be doing photoshoots, and are looking for people to join us in them! Last year we personally dubbed ALcon to be ZombieCon... and this year we're doing GangCon (olol, so many terrible jokes could be made from this).

Myself and the gang will be cosplaying from the Saints Row 3 games, and we're looking for generic gang members from the 3rd Street Saints , Morningstar, Luchadores and Deckers (you can find more in-game pics of these characters if you search the gang name and 'saints row' on google, or check the SR wikia). We're not looking for any of the named characters at the moment, as pretty much all of them should be taken, if people pull through, so it's just the gang members. We may end up filming some stuff as this lot too, though not another big music video. If you want to join in, feel free!


EIRTAKON
9th-11th November
eirtakon.com/

We're heading over to the ROI to join Eirtakon as their cosplay guests for this year! We've kept this one quiet for a little while, but have now been officially announced, and can confirm that we'll be there! This'll be our last convention of the year, so we're hoping to end the year on an awesome note with you guys!

We haven't decided on costumes for this yet, so will confirm closer to the date!







That's all for now :) DFTBA!
