Who doesn’t love faires and conventions? I’ve been to a few fabulous ones myself. A few years ago I had the pleasure of working in a face painting booth at the Phoenix Fairy Festival, which is a small intimate. but wonderfully magical little faire and I really enjoyed working it!
I’ve also had the opportunity to model for a few fashion shows in comic-related conventions around the Phoenix valley, as well as attend the BIG comic convention in L.A. this last summer (it was very very big O_O).
And of course I love the Renaissance Festival and attend it every year! But the convention I REAAAAALLLLY want to attend is the Faerie Con.
It looks like so much fun! It takes place every November (next week, in fact.) in beautiful Maryland. And get this, one of the artist guests is Kinuko Y. Craft *squee* (if I you have not yet had to listen to me rave about her check out my Favorite Modern Artists post ;D )
In the program this year they are offering everything from live bands to panels about fairy tales in the media to lectures on mythical characters like Morgana Le Fey.
Now that I know about this, perhaps I will be able to make plans to attend it in 2013 *3*
Do any of those conventions/faires catch your eye? Have you attended any of them, are there any other related events you would like to attend? I am curious to know! 😀
Prepare yourselves, I am going to spent the next several paragraphs geeking out about my celebrity crush: Hello Kitty. (If you haven’t noticed from the contents of this blog, all of my passions match those of a five year old girl. Fairy tale princesses, coloring, sweets and of course hello kitty. I’m cool with this.)
I was shopping at Target the other day, (with which I have a long standing, secret, love affair. Shh don’t tell anyone!) when I made a fantastic discovery: Hello Kitty Clothes for Grown ups. Which I must say, are pretty fabulous.
Of course this was a dream come true for me, who normally is resigned to shopping in the kids section for my hello kitty clothes. Hey don’t judge, if the shoe fits…wear it. Even if it was meant for a seven year old. Which by the way, an US women’s size 7.5/8 shoe is about the same size as a US girl’s 5, which is pretty sweet because kids shoes are often cheaper. Anyway, if you want some fabulous Hello Kitty clothing, tailored for a grown up figure, head over to Target! I went ahead and purchased the boxy blue top and the embossed pleated skirt, and I am just as pleased punch!
