I almost almost forgot to do this post this month again! This year is just flying by. This post is part of the ESG: My favourite picture of the month April swap on Swap-Bot.
So let’s start right where we left off last month! The weekend of the 30th was Lush Festival, so my friend David and I drove through to Clarens on Saturday night with the intention of arriving at 2am then getting some sleep. Unfortunately we got a flat tyre in the middle of nowhere and only arrived in Clarens at 5:30am! We managed to get some sleep and enjoy the festival. The reason we drove all that way was to see Bowling For Soup live, as they were one of our favourite bands back in high school. The show was amazing – we were right in front and I even ended up catching one of their guitar picks! Here is a photo of us, as well as a photo taken by Wayde Flowerday Photography. Can you spot me right in front? 🙂
That following Saturday, I first had a market at Thrashers, and myself and two other stall holders decided to show off my new crowns that I am selling!
And then that evening, I took Kalyca and Bree to Red Room for the first time! It was an amazing night filled with lots of dancing.
And then this lovely lady that I have been stalking on social media for ages decided to pitch up there so we could finally meet!
That next day, Kayleigh and I went to Lory Park Zoo for the day! We got to pet the servals!
Unfortunately after that amazing weekend, I was sick for about 2 weeks. And then I had a very unpleasant experience at home affairs while trying to get my ID card and passport issued in my married surname. Overall I had two really crappy weeks. But then luckily Kayleigh came to save the day again! She came over to my hourse on the 22nd again for dinner and it was great to finally hang out with someone again after being sick.
The following week was just absolute chaos as I was getting the last things ready for FanCon while trying to keep up with work. But at least on the 27th, Kalyca and I flew down to Cape Town for FanCon! That night I went out to Gandalf’s for Gothic Resurrection – an event I’ve been wanting to attend for years now! I got to see Juan and Simi so that made it even better. I honestly can’t remember the last time I danced so much! I miss having regular goth events in Gauteng!
And now for the FanCon pics! On the Friday I was supposed to wear my Little Sister (from Bioshock) cosplay, but I left the apron at home in Pretoria (oops!), so I improvised an outfit. I bought these amazing horns at the event from a lovely lady whose business is called Nightshade Designs! They look like they were made for me!
On day 2 I cosplayed Mavis from Hotel Transylvania! It was fun, but I don’t really like the short hair on me. I think I pulled it off though! I also did a shoot with Phantom Pixel Photography so will have some cute pics of me in cosplay soon!
I didn’t make as much as I was hoping for at FanCon, but I still had loads of fun!
And that was my extremely busy and mostly exciting April!
I hope you enjoyed hearing about my month! And yes, I know I still need to write a post about my kitten, Mavis. Being sick messed around my entire posting schedule but I will do it soon!
