I thought first up I need to answer a few questions people had for me - first of all a few people asked where I bought the blank shoe clips to make these. I bought them off Ebay - I think I got about 10 pairs for $5, I can't remember the name of the store but I don't think it would be too hard to find some cheap shoe clips on ebay to make your own version.
Secondly, people asked what play we went to see - well it was one at Bats which is one of our local theatres here in Wellington. The play we saw was "Nucking Futs" and the byline was "Some people just shouldn't have the internet".
Finally CB asked if I would do an outfit post which included the Strawberry Dress I wore in a recent post about Singapore. I would love to do that - but I recently gave that dress away to a friend, sorry. You seen I had already taken the dress in twice over the months as I have been losing weight. It got to the stage where if I took it in any more it would have just looked plain weird. So I decided to give it to a good friend of mine who I knew would love it.
Finally onto this weekend, we after the craziness of last week I really just wanted a chilled out Saturday. My friend Emi came over in the afternoon for a "Crafternoon" and I finished up my Princess Bubblegum costume for Armageddon.
In the evening Rich and I went out for dinner at an "Eat out Asian" night that was happening less than five minutes down the road from us. Very close to our apartment is a group of shops called "Willis Village" which has a Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese restaurant and last night they had a food event where you could try food from all three different restaurants in one night. Plus they had lanterns and lights, outdoor seating and music.
After the gardens it was time to head home and dress for "Armageddon" - I was excited! My first ever cosplay costume - I kind of felt like "I am now a sewer - because I can make a costume". First up here's a couple of photos taken back at our apartment of the Princess Bubblegum costume.
Then next up its onto the main event - Armageddon!!
I met up with my friend Ross at Armageddon - yah!
I also met this Avatar dude - now that's commitment to your costume!
We met Totoro and it was so exciting! Totoro chased after Ross to give him a big hug as well.
Yah! It's ADVENTURE TIME!!
I had a great time at Armageddon, I was a little bit nervous before I left as I thought that my costume might not be "up to scratch" but I think it was pretty rad. I was expecting to see at least one other Princess Bubblegum - but there wasn't any others. Well, not that I saw anyway.
I did make a few purchases from Armageddon - the first is this adorable "Ninja Bear" it's made locally in New Zealand by Chibi Crafts & Designs in Auckland. This Ninja is "Sushi Ninja" but you guys may have already worked that one out.
