I had been sick and tired of it.
Well, since then I have done the Cospay Tea Party & Picnic (April 27), Free Comic Book Day/Star Wars Day (May 4), and Ottawa Comic Con (May 10). At none of these was I Grell. And no one questioned the lack of the lovely red wig. My mother even likes me in this wig.
No one asked me why there was a lack of Grell. Nobody was disappointed that I was another character. Everyone liked seeing the diversity of my characters.
Because of this, I don't think I will be putting him in a temporary retirement, as I am strongly considering taking him to the Summer Cosplay Festival in the GTA. This is an event where the location & date is voted upon. So I don't know when/where it will be yet.
So those of you who love Grell, he won't be going on a temporary retirement. He might go on hiatus if I order a new wig for him though.
