Ain’t no party like a Rat Queens Party!

We made it a point to wear these costumes closer to the evening at Dragon Con so as we could all get proper drunk in them together, as true Rat Queens do. Each of us slipped more and more into character as the night went on, with our Dee even quietly slipping off to the side at one point.
