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:
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?
