2017’s Kitacon event took place this weekend at the University of Warwick in Coventry and it was the first time my other-half and I had been to the convention (apart from when Tim at GeekOut South-West sneaked me in for a couple of hours a few years ago). I sit here writing this on Sunday evening feeling totally exhausted… but unfortunately it has nothing to do with cosplay and too much alcohol.

Things didn’t go according to plan and we returned home a day early after receiving a call to let us know that one of our cats was missing. The cat-sitter had been looking for Zelda for 12 hours and was pretty distraught so the best thing for us to do was to head back – and I’m relieved to say that Pete and I managed to track her down. She was covered in dust and cobwebs after getting herself stuck in our old garage, but other than that she’s completely fine; thank you so much to everyone for all the kind tweets.
That little disaster sadly meant we didn’t get to see as much of Kitacon as we’d planned, I didn’t get the chance to wear my Eleven and Velma costumes, and I didn’t take as many photographs as I’d hoped. But we managed to fit in a couple of panels along with the cosplay masquerade and there are plenty of photos of that in the gallery below. There are some things I’d like to write about so there’ll be a few posts dedicated to the convention this week but for now, I’m getting my head down and catching up on some sleep.
