2018 April/May/June Update:
As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.
However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.
From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.
During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.
UPDATE: It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages.
There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:
- Obsession: Meet Avallac'h
- [NSFW] Avallac'h & His Nude Women | Witcher 3 Game Screenshots
- Historical Accuracy vs Avallac'h

UPDATE April 17, 2018: I do not like being harassed online or offline, in any way, shape or form. Sorry, but what just happened this week is intolerable and I've blocked everyone involved and deleted all their posts. I will continue to block any one else who does the same as these people did. If you were one of the 200+ people blocked on my FaceBook account this week, here's a link to tell you why I blocked you: https://www.eelkat.com/cosplying-a-rapist.html
If you want a quicker explanation of what happened, I tell you in this video:
Getting Ready For PortCon 2018
Ads by Share-a-Sale
Do know that the first day of the event, the ticket line goes out the building around the lot, past Cracker Barrel, and last year, went all the frigging damned way to ToysRUs, nearly 1/4 of a mile long, with 5,000+ people standing in line 4 hours before the tickets started to even be sold!
This is an event people people set up tents and sleep on the sidewalk to be the first ones in line for.
If you have not pre-registered, you may NOT get in!
PortCon has a cap limit and when they reach it, they stop selling tickets.
South Portland Police Officers ARE there doing head counts and they WILL shut the line down if too many people arrive. That line cuts off at 3,500 people and if you are 3,501 you are NOT getting in.
South Portland Police Department is also there at the event doing rigous weapons checks.
If you are carrying anything that looks even remotely like a weapon, you WILL be pulled out of line and searched.
You have to be "peace bound" before the police will let you into this event.
This is a CosPlay Convention, a lot of people are carrying swords, guns, and who knows what else.
While swords and guns ARE street legal in Maine, they are NOT legal in PortCon.
Many people try to take live/real weapons into this event.
If you take them out of your car, they WILL be confiscated, and turned over to the South Portland police.
PortCon enforces a strict no live weapons policy. Know that before you arrive.
Yes, my Avallac'h CosPlay this year includes a real sword.
No, I will not be bringing it with me to the convention.
While I am a sword collector and you see me in photo shoots with live steal/real swords, I do not bring my swords with me to the event, so don't expect me to have them in any photos at the event.
Do know The DoubleTree Hilton is right next door to the Portland JetPort, the airport that the 9-11 planes were hijacked out of. The Portland and South Portland Police are on HIGH ALERT looking for terrorists during PortCon.
There was a run on the event last year with people getting trampled and 400+ people crowding into a room that had a 68 person capacity, due to a famous YouTuber being at the event.
The police were not ready for that last year, they are planning to be ready for it this year,
after Ethan of CrankGamePlays caused a run on the Mall last year.
Remember - this is a LIMITED CAPACITY EVENT!
If you are not-pre regged for PortCon there is no guarantee you are getting in.
This is the largest convention in Maine and people come from all over the world to it.
There is no guarantee you can buy tickets at the door.
