I know Dragon*con is coming up for a lot of you, so just remember to be safe! There’s a lot of outdoor walking, and Atlanta in the summer is a very hot place, ESPECIALLY if you are wearing a costume with lots of layers. Be especially careful if you plan on walking in the parade.
Be sure to pick your parade costume carefully. I know it sort of too late for many of you, but if you’re on the fence between wearing a thick costume or one that maybe is more breathable, go with that one.
Carry ice packs in your pocket! They will keep your body cooled down a great deal. If you have time, maybe even look in to making a vest with pockets you can slide ice packs into. I use one like that for parades in Florida, and it’s great. It keeps the ice right at your core, and can be worn under your outer layers.
And of course, STAY HYDRATED!! That coke may look tasty, and might even have your name on it, but water is your friend. Drink lots of it, guys. It’s placed free around the hotels, and will keep you from passing out. Powerades are good too, but only in moderation and should still be accompanied by plenty water. I like to even dilute my powerades with more water.
Keep your body happy and healthy, everyone! Nobody wants to call paramedics during a convention.
What are everyone’s favorite places to buy packs of loose wig hair these days? Whether it’s for low costs or wide color variety, I wanna know where y’all shop lol.
