In a few short hours I leave for Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for a weekend of fun and games at the Pure Speculation convention.
Convention programming available on the website. I have stuff going most days so even if you can only come for a bit, you are sure to catch me doing something. Check the website to see if the con offers day passes.
I am packed and ready to head out.
As you can see, I’m going with leopard accessories this time around. Also, there is a steampunk ball Saturday night, so I am doing a steampunk light outfit as well. I’m shooting for carry on only, so all of this fits into a tote and a rolly. Although, I admit the tote is quite large. The clothing roll is not pictured.
Worry not, despite what Twitter may think of me, I am quite able to check the weather at my destination and pack accordingly. I have warmth, many layers, scarf, hat, lined leather gloves, etc… and have taken as many measures as possible for a thin skinned Californian. For example, I am wearing my Big Pink Coat, referred to disrespectfully by the AB as the Moving Blanket of Doom. Too warm to ever wear in this part of the word, I get funny looks at any CA airport, but the coat is one of my great loves. And yes, it does kind of look like a moving blanket.
Pure Speculation is my last event of 2013. When I get back I’ll give you a full report on C&C launch. (It’s been pretty cray my end for two weeks now!) I have some specially cool news for you, and a new member of the family waiting patiently to make your acquaintance.
And with those suspiciously caustic hints, I leave you for a week or so. Hooray for my Gentle Readers!
