This year’s Wondercon was just as good as last year, as opposed to Comikaze which only went downhill its second year. There were tons of people and many great and inspiring costumes! The first day I went as Harley Quinn from Batman. I consider this my “lazy day” costume since it doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to put on or maintain. Everything is store bought, just bits and pieces I threw together. The Poison Ivy is my friend Rose. Her costume is made of plastic leaves glued onto a bikini. My sister dressed up as a humanoid Amaterasu from Okami.
Day two I dressed up as Soraka from League of Legends. The costume was entirely handmade by me, except for the body suit. The suit features painted markings and alterations to the hands to make it fit. I was going to upload some progress pictures but overall it wasn’t hard to make and an explanation of it all didn’t seem necessary.
Alex is dressed as Jayce, another champion from League of Legends. His costume is also made by me, most of it either sewn from scratch or altered from existing garments. The hammer is pretty heavy, despite being made of only cardboard, a bit of clay, and foam.
Rose chose to go as Black Canary the second day.
Here I am with Frank Beddor, the author of The Looking Glass Wars. I bought a comic from him, drawn by my favorite artist, Ben Templesmith.
I’d love to find some other pictures of my cosplay. I hope a few will pop up online over the next few weeks. If I find more, I will post them in a new entry. Until then, here is a sneak peek at my next planned cosplay… Thresh, the chain warden!!
