IS MY WIG CROOKED?
By Christine Rains
One of my favorite things about going to conventions is seeing people in costume. Silly costumes, sexy, detailed, horrible, funny, and WTF? I love them all.
Dressing up in costumes and role playing is called cosplay. It's a big theme in the Dice & Debauchery series. Cosplay leads to several hot scenes in my books. Emily (the protagonist in the second book) and her love interest, Russell are professional cosplayers. They make their own outfits and enter costume contests. Contests in which you can win a lot of money.
I've had two cosplay experiences. The first was during a Harry Potter LARP (Live Action Role Playing) for adults. I was dressed for Slytherin, but I was given a Hufflepuff character. So I had to be a good girl. Or rather, since I was a boy transformed into a girl, a good boy? It was a lot of fun. Everyone dressed up for it.
My second experience was not as positive. It was for a barbarian LARP. I pieced together a costume that was like a conservative Xena. But no one else dressed in costume for this game. To top it off, no one commented on my outfit. So embarrassing. But I was one of the last players alive by the end of it!
You don't need to dress up for games or enter contests if you want to wear a costume. Most folks just do it for fun.
Official Ellora's Cave blurb:
Dice and Debauchery, Book 1
A weekend away at a convention is exactly what overworked student Morgan needs. Dressed as her character from her favorite online game, Morgan is braced—seriously, could her corset be tighter?—to meet the other players. As Lady Gyrfalcon, she’s ready for everything—except her intense attraction to Dean. A clandestine meeting in the hallway of the hotel and Morgan’s corset is looser but now she can’t breathe for entirely different reasons.
Utterly charmed, Morgan decides to roll the dice and indulge in a fantasy-worthy weekend of sexy roleplaying, scorching sex and life-altering orgasms. Still, through it all Morgan is too smart to believe the chemistry constantly stripping her of costumes and control can last more than the length of the convention. But if she wants to keep a relationship so intense she thought it only existed in fiction, she’s going to have to let go of her cool-headed logic and allow herself to fall far and fast for the perfect guy.
A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
