morganskye: (ST - LJ Post RUN!)
This weekend was incredibly mixed. I completely enjoyed seeing my friends, staying with the lovely Kim and Mary, getting to finally wear Telma in public, and general con fun. However The Contest was a giant ball of sharp spikey stress which made me completely break down emotionally. Seriously. A few people were watching me for the rest of the night to be sure I didn't do something stupid. But first! Here's a shot of Telma from the photographer in the Dealer's Room. No cut for you!

Telma

I'm pretty!! Although I already want to remake things, like the jacket. It's obvious that I've lost enough weight that I already need to take it in, even without throwing the corset into the equation. Plus it needs more interfacing and a remake of the sleeves...*babbles on for a few minutes*

Ok, anyway. CC. I'm going to cut out a metric TON of drama, gossip, and hear-say. As far as I'm concerned, there is no one person or event that made me have my breakdown. It was a lot of miscommunication, misunderstanding, and a giant pile of little problems that all turned into a nightmare. While no contest ever goes without a hitch, this one had more then its fair share of mind-bending problems. Add to that the fact that it's my last one with this convention (therefore I wanted it perfect), and you have all you need for a Morgan Meltdown. I bawled my eyes out to the point that I couldn't even stand up. I can't say I'm sorry and thank you enough to Jada, the ladies in registration, and my crew of judges/emcees/friends who saw me snap. I'm pretty sure I freaked them out completely. Special lovings to Angela, Kim, and Kat. You three really helped me in ways you probably don't even realize and I'm so lucky to have you as my friends.

Aside from Freakout 2012, the con was pretty nice. I'm torn about returning next year strictly as an attendee, but all in all it's a good friendly con. Hell, maybe I'll enter the costume contest. :)
