So on Friday I did an interview for the Belleville Intelligencer on Quinte Mini Con. I was hoping our whole staff team could have been there, but it ended up only me and Suns-Radiance.
It was a pretty quick interview. And the reporter asked if we could come in full costume as he would be taking pictures. And apparently we are welcome to these photos.
I went dressed in my full Trickster Karkat cosplay from Homestuck :) And Sun was an original outfit for Alexstraza from World of Warcraft.
I got a copy of the newspaper so that I could have it for my cosplay memory book, which is what I'm hoping I can have done at the end of the year.

Unfortunately it makes it sound like there's only Suns-Radiance and myself behind QMC. As well they messed up on the website. The URL is not www.quinteminicon.com. It's quinteminicon.weebly.com :/
The first thing I noticed that rather pissed me off though was about one of our guests. My best friend CosplayCanada is invited out as a guest (I invited him cause of what he's done for the community, not cause he's my friend), and unfortunately they put it as though CosplayCanada is a group of people. I think this is another instance where he's been confused for Canada Cosplay :/
I will admit though, very glad that the reporter contacted us and asked if any of us would be able to do an interview and come in full costume.
I can't wait for QMC!!!
