Techies by Day, Crafters by Night
Very cool! I've just heard about this convention. How is it compared to others since it's more of a targeted niche?
Geek Girl Con is a fun convention, more family-friendly than ECCC or PAX, and less crowded, but still lively. Give it a couple of years and it may explode... but right now it's very enjoyable and well worth attending. As a female of the geek pursuasion I have to say that I found a lot of panels I was interested - I think I went to three or four? - which is more than I usually go to at local conventions. There's something for every geek!
The rainbow sherbet gown is one of Senator Padmé Amidala's, from the scene in Star Wars: Episode II where she and Anakin first kiss.Thanks for the compliments! I'm super proud of the dress.
I know where the Padme costume is from! I've made a couple of Padme costumes myself. :) Alas, SmallRiniLady has never seen Star Wars!!! At least she knows a pretty dress when she sees one, hehe... Nice job on the dyeing!
