On Friday I will be travelling out of everyday mundane existence and into Nine Worlds Geekfest. I’m quite excited, but also nervous, as, although I will know plenty of people there, I will be travelling down on my own and ARGH, WHAT IF NO ONE TALKS TO ME? WHAT IF THEY DON’T RECOGNISE ME? WHAT IF I DON’T RECOGNISE THEM? There’s just so much opportunity for things to set of my social anxiety. So, to assuage some of these worries, I thought I would provide Helpful Recent Images:
Oh, wait, I’m not sure that one’s all that helpful. Let’s try this again:
Of course, there’s a good chance that on the Friday, at least, I will take the opportunity to put unnatural colours in my hair. And on the Saturday and Sunday I am planning to cosplay, probably wearing the above dress to look like Daenerys (plus white blonde wig and accessories). But hopefully this gives an idea.
I’ll also be helping out a bit in the Geek feminism strand, and probably attending many of the ones I’m not helping with, too. Hope I’ll see some of you there?
It looks AMAZING. Have an awesome time!
Little far to come, unfortunately… 😛
