This year, for Geekfest I will be running my very own booth! This year I streamlined my blog and photography and created and online shop. Everything is under the same name, Evon Von. My online shop consists of handmade goods. I don't want to give away all of my tricks, but there are a lot of sewn items, wall art, and knick knack items. I have been seriously busting my butt to get a lot of stock made and I am overall happy with the variety of items I've got going. At this point, I am just working as hard as I can to produce as much as I can until Geekfest is officially here. So my countdown is starting RIGHT NOW! Less than one month left and I will be open for business!
More updates on my progress will come throughout the weeks. Along with my cosplay lineup for Geekfest. So stay tuned to find out what will be in store!

Saturday, July 12th, my son and I had the opportunity to go to Capital City Comic-Con in Austin Texas. I found out about this convention extremely last minute, but I was so excited to be able to go and share this experience with my son. He loves going to conventions. His favorite thing about conventions is seeing all the cool costumes! Because my son is such a huge Batman fan, he already decided that he wanted to go dressed as him. Because I had some leftover fabric from another cosplay, I chose to cosplay as Cheetara, from Thunder Cats.
We arrived at the con almost an hour after the doors opened. It was nice because it wasn't that crowded yet. There we plenty of space to casually walk around and look at all of the booths that were set up. We started with illustrators and saw some extremely talented people! There were lots of artists there, and there was so much diverse artwork, it was great! So many unique and creative people were there, I was so impressed! Later, we visited booths of vendors that were selling manufactured items. I have a love hate relationship with these booths! I love the figurines and items they have, but I hate that I want to take everything home with me, lol
There were guest cosplayers there as well, one of which I have been following via Instagram. They were all so nice! It was refreshing to talk to cosplay guests who were down to earth and easy to talk with, genuine and sweet! The isle of small business/homemade goods was odd tell interest to me. Since I will have my own booth at geekfest next month, it was nice to get an idea of how much each person had displayed and their different take display layouts. I was NOT straddling ideas, I've got a solid base of my own unique items. But it was nice to see the diversity of each booth.
The peak of the day for me (and my son) was getting to see the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We saw a crowd standing around and once we saw the TMNT standing there, we basically ran over. Both my son and I were able to get pictures with them! We also got to see and take a few pictures of the turtle van. Oh, and another hit for my son was the power ranger table. The green ranger want there, but there was a pink ranger, yellow, red and blue! They were all from different seasons, but my son didn't care. He has been watching a lot of power rangers on Netflix this summer.
We also got to do the "Guardians of the Galaxy Experience", which I thought was so cool! They basically take you're picture, and stick you in the lineup from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Although we only visited this Con for one day, we had an absolute blast. I can't wait to see how much it grows next year. I will definitely be going to Capital City Comic-Con next year!

For this weeks Geek Chic post, I thought it would be appropriate to feature Thor inspired fashion on Thursday. Lets just call it THORsday! I chose to go with the classic Thor costume because I love the different colors that are involved. But lets face it, if I tried to go with Chris Hemsworth's Thor, I'd be way too distracted by how hot he is. So, lets see what we've got to work with!

Ive got three conventions coming up back to back (August, September, & October) and then another one in December. On top of that, in August I will be running a booth. So I've been working on handmade things non stop! So other than my commissions, Below you will find photos of the cosplays I am currently working on. I have not decided yet which to wear to what Con, but that will be sorted out soon enough!

Today I'm rolling out a brand new series that will be featured on the blog!

Now to deconstruct this and put a realistic spin on it! I didn't want to go with a literal rip of Wonder Woman's costume, but this is a clever outfit that incorporates features of her costume without being so cheeky. Lets check it out!

To say that I was fangirling hard over this game trailer would be a severe understatement...Like everyone else, my favorite two original characters are Scorpion and Subzero so I was basically squealing through this entire thing. Not to mention the music was absolutely on point. You can't go wrong with Wiz Khalifa anyway. Who else is excited for this game to come out next year???
