So, I think we can safely rename Dragoncon 2013 to The-Con-Korin-Derped-So-Hard-She-Ruined-All-The-Photos-Con. Gah, I was sick and not feeling well the entire weekend and it really shows by how awkward and uncomfortable I look in every photo. Still, I rather like this one from

All of the fabric was gradient dyed by hand to help mimic the watercolor effect of the artwork. There are probably about 30-40 yards of ruffles in this beast. Each of the bronze pearls were also hand painted since it's apparently impossible to find bronze pearls. XD
