Melanie - Should need no introduction!
It was a little over a year ago that Susan and I found out that we would be guests at FC32022! We had decided that we were going to do the cover reveal there for her new book instead of on our regular show, and I was going to cosplay one of the characters. I don't think either of us knew what was going to happen, but we knew we were going to have one hell of a time!
Greg was actually the person that I think understood what this meant the most. He was the one that pushed for me to have the best costume I could have (including commissioning some amazing leather pieces from Quality Leather Craft (Check out their page HERE), and insisting that as a cosplay guest I needed to stand out.
And I have never been so glad of anything as they went on to ask me to be a judge for the Cosplay Competition (something that I am also doing this year), and suddenly, my cosplay that had always just been an extra part of my page, was taking on a whole new life thanks to a convention that took a chance on someone new. (Well they actually took a chance on Susan and I came as part of the package - but I'm still counting it!)
The FC3 community is AMAZING! They welcomed us with open arms and I have been thrilled to be a representative for them at a local Halloween event, A Makers Faire (Where I also judged a cosplay makers competition), and the Yule Ball at the Rochester Museum And Science Center where Greg and I helped run the games!
You hear about conventions that are "Cliquey" or "Unfriendly" but whether you are a first timer new to the circuit, or a seasoned pro, I would challenge you to find a BETTER atmosphere than we found at FC3! It is one of the craziest, most exhausting, weekends I have ever spent ..... and I CAN'T RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH!
