Science Fiction Style Queen: Teri Star Crossed

terr

If you haven’t seen Star Crossed yet, you are seriously missing out. It is one of my favorite shows on t.v right now and it deserves to have more viewers and fans. It is a science fiction romance set in the near future, but it is much much more than that! It’s based on an alien race called the atrians, who crash landed on to the earth, several years before the t.v show is set. The atrians have been misjudged by the human race and have been put into segregation, until seven atrians are allowed to attend high school as a part of an integration program.

One of those atrians is Teri. She is fierce! Teri is a nonsense ball breaker with an amazing sense of style. Teri’s trademark look is black leather from head to toe, along with her silver wing earrings, beautifully texturized hair & many accessories!

Teri’s look has been on point all season. Her sense of style is unique and sets her apart from the other atrians at her High School. What I like about Teri is that she is strong and fights for what she believes in. No matter how drastic her actions are, I think she is a good person at heart and only does what she thinks is right for her people.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN INSPIRED OOTD

AHS3

My biggest fashion inspiration right now is American Horror Story: Coven! I love everything about the show, including the fashion. The girls at Miss Robichaux’s Academy always look fierce.

I took inspiration from one of the Coven’s finest members, Zoe Benson.

I wore a black vintage style hat like she did in the show, along with a peter pan collared dress. To give the look a more gothic feel I wore distressed black tights along with a pair of dainty black wedges. To complete the look I accessorized with a pair of round black sunglasses and a small black and gold shoulder bag. Oh! And of course every witches best friend, her spell book!

MCM Comic Con Dublin 2014

This weekend I attended the first day of the Irish MCM Comic Con. The two day event was held in the RDS in Ballsbridge Co.Dublin and was the first convention MCM has ever held Ireland. It was an absolutely fantastic day out for anyone who is a fan of sc-fi, comic books & gaming.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived at the RDS but I was blown away by the crowds of people that turned up for the event. There was people of all ages attending the convention and I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of people that arrived in cosplay! I didn’t cosplay for the event due to the amount of travelling I would have to do that day, but if the event comes back next year, expect to see me in full on cosplay mode!

It took about 20 minutes to get through the que and enter the convention. The tickets at the door cost €12 per person and entry for kids was completely free of charge. Upon entering the main hall I was overwhelmed by the amount of stuff there was to do and see. It was pure geek heaven! There was something for everyone at the convention. Gaming stations, autograph signings, face painting, cosplay & art competitions. Also, guest talks, Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments, live wrestling and stalls upon stalls of wonderful geek related merchandise to browse.

The comic village section was full of talented artists. Who were demonstrating their art work and selling issues of their comic book series as well as drawing illustrations on the spot for people interested in owning some original art work. I bought this Harley Quinn art work from a very talented young artist named Anastasia(artwork below)

As a cosplayer, one of my favorite parts of attending a convention is seeing the wonderful array of costumes people wear. I spotted King Joffrey and I had to give him a piece of my mind! :p

Fotor0413124312During the day I got the chance meet some really nice sci-fi and fantasy actors and actresses, from shows like A Town Called Eureka, Merlin & Primeval. There was also guests from Dr.Who, Red Dwarf & Sleepy Hollow on the day. A stand out guest for me was Colin Ferguson from A Town Called Eureka, he was very funny and was more than happy to stand and chat.

Fotor0413144331Here are some of the items I picked up at the MCM Comic Con.

There was so much to choose from. I was overwhelmed by the variety of merchandise that was on sale and at reasonable prices! They had some really amazing t-shirts so I picked up this Dr. Who tee, along with my Harley art work and this Daenerys Targaryen figure. DSC_0048

I had a brilliant time at the convention. Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was electric with excitement! It just goes to show that there is a market for events like this in Ireland. The huge number of people who turned up to attend the event proves that point. The enthusiasm and passion for the event shown by the fans and convention staff alike was wonderful to see. I really hope that MCM decides return to Ireland next year and make Ireland one of their regular annual convention destinations. things

  • If you don’t want to stand in line to get in, pay that little bit extra for a priority ticket.
  • Bring a bottle of water with you because it can be exhausting walking around all day.
  • Make sure you bring some snacks along with you to keep your energy levels up.
  • If you are going to cosplay, know that you will be stopped for pictures a lot.
  • Browse before buying. There is so much on offer you don’t want to impulse buy.
  • Save money before the con to take advantage of the amazing merchandise stalls.
  • Chat with the comic artists about their work. They gave me helpful advice about drawing!
  • Also by asking about their work you may discover a great new underground series to read.
  • Make sure to pick up leaflets/business cards from the stalls/artists you liked on the day.
  • At the end of the day, some vendors offered discounts & offers on certain merchandise!
