QUI EST-ELLE?

≡®

Suspended in disbelief. Frequently breaking the fourth wall. Collector of novelty watches and Kewpie dolls. I run Fashion Tips From Comic Strips and I am the resident superheroic sartorialist on ComicsAlliance.

This one time, I wore a Snorlax Dress. This other time, I appeared in music videos for Art Brut and Adam WarRock. THE END.

BETTY FELON: 2014 Convention Schedule
Mar. 21 - 23: Anime Boston
Apr. 5 - 6: MoCCA Arts Fest
June 20 - 22: HeroesCon
Aug. 8 - 10: Boston Comic Con
Oct. 9 - 12: New York Comic Con
Sept. (TBA): MICE (Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo)
Nov. (TBA): Super MegaFest 
We’re skipping out on San Diego Comic Con this year and opting for HeroesCon instead, which is already friendlier to our bank accounts and our schedules (especially now that Jordan & I are traveling Boston ↔ Austin every other month or so~).
I wrote more words about SDCC & HeroesCon on my blog or whatever, but let me know if you’re going to any of these cons~

Are any of you going to Super MegaFest this month?
Super MegaFest is a small convention at the Sheraton in Framingham with a growing cosplay presence and some really great vintage dealers. Since we had a blast at Super MegaFest last year, AK & I will be covering the event again (mostly, photographing cosplayers, stalking Traci Lords & Kevin Sorbo, and splurging on replica weapons). Be sure to say hi if you spot us! :D
Super MegaFestNovember 17 - 18, 2012@ Sheraton Framingham Hotel [Framingham, MA]

A thing that we’re going to in a couple weeks.

In which, one week ‘til New York Comic Con.
Who’s going? :D
P.S. If any of you are hoping to track me down next week (since I’m not even sure if I’ll get to cosplay this year), be sure to follow me on Twitter.P.P.S. And if you do find me at NYCC, don’t be shy - say hi! Seriously - I promise that I’m nice in person. I also promise that saying hi is infinitely less awkward than sending me a message after the convention, explaining how you were going to say hi but then you got scared and ran away and decided to send me a message explaining why you didn’t say hi. I DOUBLE-PROMISE.

fyi my plans next week
