So… I was cosplaying Dohlman Elaan and had to deal with the fact that most of people thought I was Cleopatra. But, it turns out, it wasn’t the worst scenario because there was this Orion girl. And people thought she was cosplaying ogre-version of Fiona from “Shrek” =(Guys, I know it wasn’t intentional… But that’s just a really uncomfortable situation =\ Also - I pretty much sure that she would do the right ears for Fiona.That’s the one of the reasons why I found it difficult to approach Professor Chaos then I first saw him. I had a constant thought about how I can confuse him with someone else, so I had to ask him “I’m terribly sorry because I’m afraid I can be mistaken… but are you from “South Park”?”. Thankfully, I was right. But still, that’s a rather awkward question too. Especially after you saw all the seasons, the movie and lots of game walk-throughs =\

Oh, no… I saw a video of contestants’ defile on Starcon. I was there. And it was even worse then I thought it was! X_x
Every time I’m cosplaying I blow the only chance to show my costume to most of audience with announcement, who am I and from which universe (it always was ST so far). I’m ashamed of myself -_-
And of my English too -_-

Fucking gross. Some pregnant woman dressed up as an Orion slave girl and was holding a sign that read “Kirk was here.” (It’s here if you’re brave and masochistic enough.)

People need to fucking stop perpetuating the myth that Jim Kirk is a womanizer.

Like. I get it. He’s idolized so much that these dipshits just fill in the missing pieces to make him fit into the stereotype society dictates. But the real question is why the fuck are people mindless enough to fall into these traps? Why do so many people not want to think and question things?

My mother send me that photo although she knows how I feel about Kirk misrepresentation =\ And when I said that it is offensive and unfunny, she went on about how I lost all my sense of humor because of all “feminist stuff” I involved in X_x
I always think that if woman can cosplay, have fun and just have normal social life during pregnancy, what’s just wonderful. 
But this… I feel like it is somewhat offensive for both sides x_X Because it’s like she’s saying “oh look, I’ve been knocked up by the mindless womanizer from another planet and he ran away! Ain’t it funny? ^_^”. I mean, I know woman has all rights to sleep with whoever she wants and have kids if she wants… but I’m pretty much sure that a lot of people who say that Kirk is a womanizer don’t see it this way and think of his “conquests” as “other space-babe dumb enough to fall for the charms of that jerk” and if they are pregnant it’s not because they wanted it, but because they know nothing about contraception (or they just wanted to make him marry them or make him to support their children with money, because, you know, women are either naive and clueless or cunning and greedy and want poor men to give them all their money -_-) and Kirk is too careless to use protection himself (or knows nothing about how the species he wants to have sex with reproduce).
Because if they wouldn’t think any of that, situation wouldn’t be considered funny. It’s always “Uh-oh, he made her pregnant and she is gonna find him and sue him and he would have to pay to support his child! Run, Kirk, run!” X_x

I asked Mom to draw something on the special table in the comic zone ”comix zone” at the Starcon-2014.
This was the result =)
Apparently she pictured herself as a Moominmamma ^_^
*the caption is “Kisa and Osya…” - allusion to the novel “The Twelve Chairs" - "Kisa and Osya [main characters’ nickname and pet name] were here" *

Did I mention that my mother is an artist? 
This is what happened last year then she tried to make some fan-merchandise for the ST-stand on the Starcon (it’s allowed for sale there).
She used black decals she designed, but it turned out it’s rather hard to find color mugs to apply them to. Especially red ones. And blue ones had rather unappealing color. Only yellow ones looked fine. 
If you pour tea into the glass mug with black decal on it, you wouldn’t be able to see the decal properly and black decals on white mugs looked bad.
So she was really struggling to make something of them, using acrylic paint, paint for porcelain and even some kind of gold which was awfully hard to work with. 
This year we ordered another set of decals (in the same paint as the logo on the other side of the mug) to complete the black ones. But so far it wasn’t good because several glass mugs just melted in the oven (or should I call it furnace?) because thermometers on it are incorrect. And from the rest only 4 mugs were done - Spock, Kirk, Uhura and Chekov. Others would be completed later, I hope, but Starcon already passed, so I’m again facing the question how should I sell it. I’ve tried sending them to the customers by Russian Post. It was rather stressful. But, at least, all three packages arrived and weren’t broken (even though one of the packages was to Vladivostok and it pretty much had to cross the whole country). But it was too slow =\
But still - each year we sold almost everything we brought to the stand (although the amount of mugs was less than 20). And each time no one wants to buy Chekov =( 
And my Mom doesn’t want to make the mugs with painted decors again. Even the cosmic ones (first photo).
And I kept one yellow Kirk mug (second photo) for myself.

And, of course, being at the biggest convention in Russia… I’d better sit down and do absolutely nothing! X)
