This weekend we attended the Young Adult Literature Convention. We came, we saw, we snapped pictures of amazing cosplay. We covered people in dodos.

Here are some of the best things we saw at YALC…

Caveat: we spent most of the weekend on our stand, so our view was somewhat restricted!




2. Some rainbow coloured alpacas


Initially these were mistaken for llamas, but we were swiftly corrected.


3. A skirt featuring our two favourite things

Available for purchase at Modcloth!


4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone cosplay

She stunned us with her hamsas.


5. A BB-8 suitcase

Cute and cabin-sized.


6. Someone cosplaying as Eo from Red Rising

Note the DARK neck detailing.


7. A human Pokestop

We didn’t know whether to throw a ball at him, or take pictures. (We took pictures)


8. A marshmallow sandwich

Delicious and definitely not nutritious.


9. Delightful nail art


10. People accessorising with dodos

Dodos are the new black.


11. And, if we do say so ourselves, the new Hodderscape tote bags are pretty fly…
