|Heading out to the North seas!|
In 12 hours I'll be on a plane to Scotland. 3 hour lay-over in Amsterdam - just short enough that I won't be able to do anything there. I will arrive in Glasgow in the afternoon Thursday and hopefully the jet lag won't be so bad this trip. Japan/China earlier in the year screwed my internal clock up so much.
I am really looking forward to the convention - Auchinawa! I have three panels, a meet and greet and the costume contest to judge. Bringing Wizard from Granado Espada and Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier because both costumes are fairly small to pack. I am ready to drink pear cider and try Haggis!
On Sunday Brian will join us in the UK and we have 5 whole days to explore Scotland. I am trying not to plan too much and just enjoy whatever adventures we'll end up on. Then we take a train (I miss trains!) to London Friday evening and have another 5 1/2 days there. The Grand Cosplay Ball is on that Sunday, which is one of my favorite cosplay events of the year. I made some accessories to go with the outfit I want to wear and Brian is dressing up to match me! Since this is our 3rd trip to London in as many years, we are thinking of taking a day trip somewhere, and right now it looks like the city of Bath, with it's Roman bathhouse museum. We also want to hit up old favorites like Hamsley the magical toyland store, Camden etc. Also hoping to spend more leisure time with local friends, I'm so down for some pubbing and karaoke, and seeing Harry Potter!
We come back on Thursday the 2nd of December, and I may or may not go to the Atlanta Comic Con that weekend... depends on how tired I am and how many friends are going. After that I want to take some time to prepare for 2011 and start on new costumes. We have Ikkicon over New Year's weekend in Austin, TX, then I jet to SacAnime in Sacramento, CA, the weekend after. So... a little breather lol.
Happy early Thanksgiving!
