Oh, wait... I didn't get the chance to do my southern accent this time! My Rogue costume is being delayed to (probably) WW Philly this summer. The jacket I was hired to model didn't ship in time for the con. Bummer, but not a big deal-- it just means I'll have a fun new costume to debut at WW Philly that's (gasp!) finished on time! I still had a wonderful time helping out my good friends at the Logan's Closet booth!
As you may have seen, Domino made her debut. I had fun looking like a badass, despite my usually smiley and silly personality. At least, I hope I looked like a badass; that's up for you to decide! It was a bit odd cosplaying a lesser known character. Some people called me "Catwoman," or "Black Widow," but others shrieked "DOMINO!" from across the very crowded convention and ran over to see me. When I found a person who knew who I was, I got a pretty big reaction. So, thank you, you cool, informed comic book fans!
Sadly, very sadly, I ran out of time to throw together an MJ Watson costume. It's a shame, but I realized that I would have to cut one costume if I was going to get any sleep at all for the con, and I just couldn't find the right sort of sleeveless shirt for MJ the week before. Sorry to my Spiderman friends, I didn't mean to let you down.
However! I did throw together a fake Black Widow costume for the last hour or so of the con. Domino suit + Jean hair - (dot + guns)/ 2 hours left of the con = Black Widow. Mostly I did it so I could use a Russian accent and be an Avenger with my hunky Captain America friend.
Lastly, I was so excited to meet two super nice and super gorgeous cosplayers: Linda Le and Yaya Han. When I say they were sweet, I really do mean that. I can't imagine meeting two more gracious and lovely people!
In the spirit of looking forward, here's a rough first draft of my WW Philly costumes:
--Steph Brown Batgirl
--Captain America USO Girl
Enjoy the cons and enjoy the pictures, dear friends and watchers! <3
