Next week I’ll be attending my first Romance Convention. Now, I’m experienced with Genre conventions, but I think that RT is a totally different kind of con…
So I’m taking advantage of the dogs being away today to pick out what I’m wearing. Among other things, RT is a lot longer than a genre con, so it will need more clothing. Added to that, from the many photos I’ve seen of authors at Romance conventions, jeans and t-shirts won’t cut it.
I have, therefore, compiled all my ‘fancy’ clothes. I eliminated a few because May in DFW isn’t winter. So I have to be able to pull off a layer. In addition, I don’t want my feet to explode, so I have to consider what sort of shoes I’ll wear with everything. (I”m hoping sandals with just about everything.)
I’m helping host a party while there, so that’s where I’ll wear the nice black skirt. I am not, however, going to dress up for the steampunk party. Nope.
I will do my best to blog about this experience….after all, it is my first one!!!
