Ten years ago, I had fun by stepping into the shoes of an inspirational Kiwi sword-wielder, and I dreamed of heroism and adventure.
Now, I make my own path.
Thank you for the reminder, Facebook memories!
[[This is technically from last night but for the kick off party for emerald city comicon this year, the bird and I decided to dress as two influential comic book writers in our lives, Kelly Sue Deconnick and Matt Fraction.]]
Anthony Misiano: In my opinion the best cosplayer EVER. He’s my cosplay role model. Also he is very good looking. Not to mention how perfect he’s mastered the smile and laugh, plus he’s got the tall, thin figure just like Joker. He almost never breaks character when he’s at conventions.
My cosplay of Barbara Wright from ‘The Sensorites’ at Chicago TARDIS 2015!
This has been one of my dream cosplays for a long time, and I had so much fun wearing it around the con! The dress was surprisingly hard to make, (never work with linen unless you have to!) but I’m happy with how it turned out- I’m particularly proud of the belt on the back. I made the necklace from two others I took apart, and I was so lucky to find the perfect bouffant wig. My little First Doctor marionette was commissioned from a local artist and is fantastic, and also admired by Paul McGann! Woohoo!
Since Barbara is my hero and role model, cosplaying her at last was awesome. So many people recognized me, and it’s so great to know how many fans still love her too.
And meeting another Barbara cosplayer was doubly awesome! Her Aztec Barbara was so beautiful up close, and absolutely perfect. (She made it herself, along with the adorable ‘Curse of Peladon’ Jo Grant dress her daughter was wearing, awww.) I never see anyone cosplay Barbara at cons, so this weekend was a dream come true and made me very, very happy! <3
