LunaGrimshire as Tauriel at AAC 2013. We put this together from old cosplays and made the leather and green vests withing 4 days before the convention.
So, this is my obligatory post-AAC…well, post.
A lot of fantastic things happened this year. Rekindled a friendship that didn’t have a chance to kick off last year, met some wonderful new people, got a ton of swag, I was able to take a ton of pictures for cosplayers so I can get my photography blog up and running at last, and just generally had a blast! One thing really stuck out to me, though.
I met this Castiel cosplayer. I have no idea who he is, but he was absolutely perfectly in character the entire day. He would disappear randomly, reappear randomly, I was able to make him laugh once and that was a bit of an accomplishment for me, but he was just fantastic. Not only that, being around him was calming. He had a very nice kind of vibe about him that was just fun to be around.
He was offered my friend’s alpaca to cuddle at one point, and he tried to walk away with it. When we took it away from him he looked so heartbroken (all in character, mind you) that I bought him an alpaca of his own, and ran around the con like a mad woman until I found him.
He was so appreciative (again, IN CHARACTER) about the alpaca, and tucked it into his trenchcoat. As far as I know, he carried it around with him all con long. (It was a green alpaca, and he named him Lucifer.)
Later, Castiel let me lean on his shoulder when I wasn’t feeling well. He was just generally a nice person to be around, and I wanted to thank him for making my con experience a little better. So, today I got my own alpaca, and named him Cas. :3
Castiel cosplayer, if you’re somewhere on tumblr, I would just like to thank you very much for being you~
EDIT:Guys! Castiel is this guy here!
