Costume College 2014- Part 1




     Better late than never, but I'm back from Costume College! It was my first year and I had a really good time. I met amazing bloggers and seamstresses have followed for a long time and finally got to meet! I took some great classes, made lots of new friends, weirded out the other hotel guests, pranced around in costume, and partied in various hotel rooms. Great fun!
    That said, it was VERY stimulating. A little too much for me. I had to retire to my room a few times to calm down or take a nap. This convention helped me realize that I am a bit of an introvert. I like to be social, but I need my down time. Still, I had a great time and don't regret going to CoCo. Next time I just plan to take a little more alone time.
      Pictures!
Friday!

Driving with Curtis and Christina (of The Laced Angel) to CoCo

Once there, I grabbed some food with Kaila before the
Pool Party.
