In which I can be a spy, a singer and a swordswoman

I've missed blogging. I've just come back from holiday and sitting down to do a blog post and read some blogs feels really refreshing. I've missed you guys! 

It was a lovely holiday break. I went to Indiecon, a gaming convention, with a bunch of friends and did much of the same things that took place one whole year ago when we went before. The event takes place in a holiday resort full of fake log cabin chalets all booked up by the gamers. I played so many role play games, although this time with a little less dice and a little more acting, having got more into the Fiasco type, and a great game called the Marquis is Dead; if you do play indie table-top RPGs I recommend them. Over the days there I played an eighties ghost, a Renaissance duellist and singer, a Medieval Russian spy, a 1930s Nazi-fighting Egyptologist, a Viking beserker and, very briefly (in a freakishly twee game), a cat. There were three full days of gaming, although also a few opportunities to skip the games and go to the sea. It was beautifully relaxing, no Internet, no phone signal. Just time for games and drinking and a lot of hilarity -including my first go at Cards Against Humanity.

I didn't actually take any photos of the games this time. I didn't really want to be carrying my camera around all the time. Plus as most of what makes them fun is in speech and acting, it's very hard to capture and share the moment. I did find time to at least do one outfit shoot on the beach when we went down to watch the sunset. It was a small break in a lot of rain and a rather cloudy sunset in truth, but even when the weather was horrible it was a really good time.

Quite happy with my picture-postcard shot

A very well-used umbrella and some very muddy new boots.
