I tried the chainmail workshop and after attempting to make some chainmail, I have a whole new respect for chanmail makers! I will stop complaining about the price and gladly pay $100 for a chainmail top or $50 for a chainmail belt. The makers deserve it just for saving my sanity (I was going nuts trying to get it right). Although I now own more chainmail than any one girls could possible wear, so I probably shouldn't buy any ever again. At this point I own a chainmail bikini top, this chainmail top, and this chainmail top and skirt set. And the skirt is really difficult to wear. If you try to dance or even walk around it in, you will tire really quickly from moving around with all that extra weight on you.
I'm too tired from con to remember much. I just recall the basics; good dances, good parties, good friends, good shopping, good costumes and feeling like a celebrity with people taking my picture night and day. I have already purchased my Norwescon membership for next year.
