Blood/Sugar Cosplay will be attending DOJ-Con this weekend at the University of Dundee Union. Come find us in the artists’ alley downstairs in Mono and say hi! Our stall will be well-stocked with preloved costumes, wigs, manga, figures and accessories. Raine has also made a number of gorgeous Tsunami Kanzashis and Pudding has created a collection of fairytale inspired lockets, which will be onsale alongside our other wares.
This time spooky hoose will have their own stall, though we will be stocking their products again at LFCC (and a few new surprises besides) so don’t forget to visit them as well for fantastic lasercut goodies!
We’ll be cosplaying as usual, with the majority of the team in one of our favourites’ Hamsteak… er, Homestuck, with another Beta Kids group: Zomboi and Nickel reprising their roles as Dave and Jade, and Pudding switching from John to Rose. We’re also going to have SyntheticAudio and captaincreeds joining us as John and Bro respectively. Meanwhile Raine is letting her creative side out with her own version of Disney!Hipster, Merida.
Hope to see you there!
With Sunnycon fast approaching (this weekend!) the Blood/Sugar team are very excited to be there. As usual, we’ve ended up with more than a few changes to the cosplay roster. We are now (mostly) packed and have definite plans:
Cardcaptor Sakura Gym Uniforms – Saturday – Raine as Sakura & Pudding as Tomoyo/Madison
Homestuck Beta Kids – Saturday – Nickel as Jade Harley & Zomboi as Dave Strider
Homestuck Alpha Kids – Sunday – Zomboi as Jake English, Pudding as Roxy Lalonde & Nickel as Jade Crocker
Barbie & The Rockers – Sunday – Raine as Barbie
And of course Zomboi & Pudding’ competition entry cosplay which are still a surprise (we hope a nice one).
Unfortunately spooky hoose has had to pull out at the last minute, but we will still have some of their fantastic Keyrings to sell and there will be opportunities for you to purchase from their store when it comes online later this year and at other events including DOJ-Con, LFCC & Doki Doki Festival.
Because of this Blood/Sugar will have a special guest cosplay staff member, Angelphie who has very kindly stepped in on short notice to help us out. Thank you Angie, you’re aces!

Blood/Sugar Cosplay and spooky hoose can now officially confirm that we will be attending Sunnycon 2 as dealers. Sunnycon is a two day event held in Sunderland’s Seaburn Centre on the 23rd and 24th of March 2013. They boast such guests as voice actors Vic Mignoga, Sonny Strait and Christina Vee, Lolita designer Iasha “Aisha” Masood, author Marissa Meyer, artist Emiko Chan and cosplay guest Ginny McQueen, whom some of Blood/Sugar briefly met (and photographed) at an MCM Expo back in October 2010 in her Emma Frost costume.
Zomboi and Pudding are also entered into the fantastic Sunnycon cosplay competition; our first (intentional) competitive cosplay group, so please come cheer us along. We’re keeping our contest costumes a surprise for the moment< and we hope it’s a nice one on the day for people.
Our non-competitive cosplay plans currently include Homestuck (Zomboi as Dave and/or Bro Strider and Nickel as Jade Harley), Studio Ghibli (Raine as Esther from Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and Pudding as Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service), Jem & the Holograms (Pudding as Jem) and Barbie & the Rockers (Raine as Barbie) and L4D2 (Zomboi as Ellis). Some of these are still tbc, but it’s a good general idea of what we’ll be wearing. Come say hi!
Other conventions we are also attending as dealers in 2013:
DOJ-CON – Dundee – 13th April (Blood/Sugar Cosplay, spooky hoose is trading separately at this event)
LFCC – London – 5th to 7th July (Blood/Sugar Cosplay with spooky hoose merchandise available)
Doki Doki Festival – Manchester – 9th November (Blood/Sugar Cosplay & spooky hoose)
After our first foray into being dealers at Dee-con 2012, we are planning to branch out and test the waters further as “proffeshunal bizniz persons lul”. So, we’ve applied for a table at DoJ-con 2013 (previously Dee-con) and are hoping to hear by the end of the month whether they’ll have us back or not. We’re also looking into booking tables at a number of other events throughout the year; including Sunnycon 2 in March and DokiDoki Festival in November.
We’re going to be collaborating with the fantastic Spooky Hoose (pictured, their shop is currently under construction, but will be up-and-running some time during 2013) at these events, either sharing table space or selling products for each other if one or t’other of us can’t attend the same events. Whilst we may not be doing this in 2013, certainly we hope to start working together on a small range of products as well; sharing expertise, equipment and skills. You may have noticed that Spooky Hoose’s owner looks suspiciously like Pudding wearing a fabulously luxuriant beard… this would be because he is in fact her brother; he is often embarrassed by this fact (especially when she is running around the house wearing her Rubbish Tiger cape), but that’s what big sisters are for. ;P
Expect these and other similar banners (still working on a colour scheme for the joint banner) to be popping up on the dealers pages of a few sites in the not-too-distant future:
As plain attendees, Blood/Sugar will deffinately be going to Ayacon’s last hurrah in August and at least some of us are hoping to go to May and/or October Expo. Once more information about Glasgow Comic Con/Memorabillia is released we are also thinking of attending it.
We’ll make a more informed announcement about things once we’ve actually booked things though! Hope everyone had a great Christmas/other Yuletide holiday and New Year and that 2013 proves to be a good year!
Another comic for your viewing pleasure. There’s a few more to go and then I start on the videos.

Just a quick note to say that we’ve updated the commissions section of our gallery and tidied up a few other bits and bobs to make it super fabulous.

After positively weeks of work, Pudding has now got the new gallery system in place (linked below or available under Cosplay)… now to compile and edit all of our con videos for the last 6 years (luckily none of us had video cameras for most of that time) and make the rest of the comics we’ve had photos ready for since Aya ’11… ooopsie…
Anyway, enjoy our fabulous new cosplay gallery:
BloodSugar Cosplay Gallery
Yes, well, it’s to be expected of us by now…
Just a little something to keep y’all occupied whilst Pudding revamps the awkward gallery interface with something much shinier… if she can figure out how to do internets of course…

As of Amecon 2012 we’d proudly like to announce that X’amd has, after cosplaying with us on-and-off since 2007, become an official member of Blood/Sugar Cosplay. We are so happy and excited about this! Welcome X’amd!
We had a lot of fun at Amecon, though none of us ended up in the masquerade for a change. Some costumes were dropped or rearranged because Raine got a job (congrats!) and didn’t have time to finish some of hers and Pudding had a serious Anaphylactic attack in the wee small hours of Sunday morning, so didn’t cosplay at all on Sunday and never made it to the Ame ball or closing party sadly. Though everyone else had an absolute blast dressed as Darkstalkers’ gorgeous Morrigan (X’amd) and beautiful Lillith (Raine) and the devious Morriarty from BBC’s Sherlock (Zomboi).
Most of our photos can be found, as always, on our photobucket: http://s1117.photobucket.com/albums/k597/Blood-Sugar-Cosplay/Amecon%202012/
Our costumes list will be update shortly, depending on when Pudding’s feeling up to it and has some free time.
