Game City Nights meets Dr Sketchy Nottingham
Last night was a rather special event for us at Dr Sketchy Notts HQ - We were kindly asked to take part in Game City Nights, the monthly evening incarnation of Game City, the Nottingham based gaming culture festival. Well, what a fantastic night we had! I was Mario, my good friend Mat Douglas was Luigi, model Laura Woods was a sexy Princess Peach complete with swarovski encrusted Eternal Spirits corsetry, and Becky Johnston, a lovely cosplayer from Manchester and theatre costume student was Sion from The Bouncer, and held some very difficult poses very still!
Armed with lots of paper and pencils we held a drop in and draw session and then took to the stage for some silly competition poses, compered by my co-host the lovely Scarlett Daggers. The response was fantastic, both from our regulars and first timers alike! The star prize for the evening was a Nintendo DS, part of a prize box donated by Game City.
Thanks to Game City for the photo, more less blurry ones to follow!
