Artists & Vendors I Met at the Penti-Con 2019

I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I’m also pretty broke when I go to these things, and end up having to buy anything I wanted after the fact, so I always walk out with a little stack of business cards and a plan! What should I do with all these business cards?? I know! Let’s share these talented people with you! 🙂 You’re welcome!

The SHire of Danescombe

Featuring skills and trades such Archery – Armour- Armoured – Combat – Bardic – Calligraphy – Costuming – Cooking – Dance – Embroidery – Glass work – Heraldry – Leather working – Painting – Pewter casting – Rapier – Singing – Spinning – Textiles & Weaving!

Arlane Kamps

This lovely lady paints with oil paint – a real feat if you know anything about painting! Her business card has been sitting on my desk the last few weeks, which illustrates a young women with babies breath in her hair and a tattoo of a buttercup and a daisy on her face. This of itself is breath-taking, but if you stair into the eyes too long, you will become drawn in and never want to leave! Incredible work!

Sweetnam’s Nik Naks

I also ‘helped out’ my buddy’s, (and by help, I mean attracted attention to their booth) who were visiting all the way from Barriere at Sweetnam’s Nik Naks, a store they run with their dad Daniel, awesome guy! They are the other two original RWBY group starters here in the Okanagan 🙂

And last but not least….

Paul Mcgillion

Stargate Atlantis Actor, more currently known for his role in the Flash, was one of the special guests there. A down to earth man who wants to give the normal human an experience to remember! His panel was incredible, I’ve recorded the whole thing, a couple of amazing stories on that one, so expect some of that in the near future! 😉

After his panel was over, I swapped from Ruby to Glynda in the bathroom. As I’m dressing however, the P.A. announced that Paul was heading over to the Stargate for pictures! So I rushed to change, however, the clasp malfunction I had forgotten about happened and I had to dash back out to the car before heading to the Stargate, sadly not seeing him there….But he was JUST Walking away! I said hey how’s it going! He said, hello? I said, I’m the girl who made you cry! He was like WOW you’ve CHANGED! I laughed soooo hard, then we got to jump through the Stargate together, the patience he had with my shitty camera was extremely appreciated!

Till next time! Peace Out – SarahTonin!

Artists & Vendors I Met at the Vernon Comic-con 2019

Well I thought I’d start doing a little something different then just filing all those business cards away for when I need them next! I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I’m also pretty broke when I go to these things, and end up having to buy anything I wanted after the fact, so I always walk out with a little stack of business cards and a plan! However, I don’t want to hog all these awesome people to myself, so I’ll share my finds with you 🙂 You’re welcome!

501st Legion

Spoiler alert!!!! Darth Vader is a lady! Well, at least the one here is 😉 She’s a force to be reckoned with, joined by her husband in an incredible replica of the Boba Fett costume! I hope to work more with these people in the future, so stay tuned for that!

DC World – Raven

Raven is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in a special insert in DC Comics Presents #26 (October 1980), and was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez. The daughter of a demon father (Trigon) and human mother (Arella), Raven is an empath who can teleport and control her “soul-self“, which can fight physically, as well as act as Raven’s eyes and ears away from her physical body. She is a prominent member of the superhero team Teen Titans. The character also goes by the alias Rachel Roth as a false civilian name.Q

I first fell in love with Raven while watching Teen Titans years ago. The sadness within her soul knowing what is to come echoes forward into her dark yet kind persona.

Artists & Vendors I Met at KFX

Well I thought I’d start doing a little something different then just filing all those business cards away for when I need them next!

VIK WALKER

A lovely lady who enjoys to read out-loud, and won’t put you to sleep while doing so! I spent a half hour listening to her read, and it slipped by so fast! I’m normally not a huge fan of being read to, as most can’t read fast enough to keep my brain engaged. But she keeps you riveted with facial expressions and voice pitches that will keep you on the edge of your seat, till she leaves you with a cliff hanger and makes you buy the book 😉 An amazing artist, worth the buy and the read! On the list!

The Okanagan Batman

I LOVE THIS GUY!!! Thank you for making the streets a better place by being the amazing guy you are!
It takes a lot to be Batman – and if you don’t think that, well you haven’t worn a sweaty costume for more then an hour, then pummeled by kids and people who are so excited to see their most favorite character! He always gets down on YOUR level, and will always JUMP at the opportunity to say ‘You’re awesome! WHY?! Because, I’m BATMAN!’ It takes faithfully doing the same thing every day hoping to make someone smile that gains respect, and allows him to go where he goes. 🙂
Please keep being that Dark Knight, making sure our dark nights are safe 🙂

Available for Parties, special Occasions, community events. Besides the bat signal can be reached at theokanaganbatman@hotmail.com

OTAFEST

Also out and about was OTAFEST, promoting their event upcoming May 17-19th

Well that’s all folks! I’ll see you at the Penti-con! Tickets here!

And last but not least –

Sweetnam’s Nik Naks

I also ‘helped out’ my buddy’s (Felt like I stood there a lot and didn’t know what to do!) who were visiting all the way from Barriere at Sweetnam’s Nik Naks, a store they run with their dad Daniel, awesome guy! They are the other two original RWBY group starters here in the Okanagan 🙂 They allowed my mum to sell her bags at their shop, so thankful!

Harley Quinn Cosplay

A siren from the DC Comics, based this character first made her debut back in 1992, when creators Paul Dini and Bruce Timm decided that it was too bizarre for the Joker himself to jump out of a pop out cake. He ended up doing anyways, but not before they had made a female sidekick/love interest. The inspiration for her costume came from Dinn’s college friend Arleen Sorkin, who performed a dream sequence wearing a jester costume in Days of Our Lives.  Because of their history, Dinn easily incorporated aspects of her personality into the character. Quinn was also inspired by a mutual female friend’s “stormy but nonviolent relationship”, according to Timm.

A former psychiatrist falling in love with the thing she was trying to cure – utter madness. This character gives us insight into a twisted side of human nature, and shows us how easy it is to slip into this tunnel of madness.

Cosplayer Group

*This group is for anyone interested in creating/wearing RWBY cosplay, and to arrange events while in costume!!! If this is you, please join and invite anyone you know who has cosplayed or will be cosplaying any character from RWBY!!!*

Cosplay doesn’t have to be expensive –

You just have to be willing to put a bit more of yourself into it, and be willing to network to those around you who have same passion and desire to see this outfit shine. Most of my outfits are handcrafted, or pieced together with old clothing articles and repurposed household items. Example: currently I am saving all my can lids to someday build a dalek replica, and in another box, I have collected random objects to build a machine that goes ‘ding’.

On one last note, always remember to test your costume by walking, sitting, crouching, standing, (and especially in ladies costumes, to ensure no slippages) raise arms above head. Do this for at least an hour before deciding it’s show worthy. Then you can run around being your favorite character to your hearts content. 🙂

Here’s a video detailing a few other common things people seem to get wrong in regards to cosplay:
