Friends, this is the longest I’ve been away from my blog… ever. Convention was 4 days this year (and the night before was spent heavily preparing) and things got away with me, so in the interest of keeping this somewhat quick I will just post our group’s pictures.
Thursday, wherein drift partner and I were Gogo Tomago and Honey Lemon and our other friend was Maria Hill!
Acquisitions/mods, and the disc is her doing (a painted frisbee).
The purse is by other friend and the rest was acquisitions and already-haves (the sweater is that) and also those heels are in fact like 4 inches tall and destruction. Thursday was the short day and we did this then for a reason.
Sewn by her.
Friday, in which friend, not pictured, repeated her Orange Lantern costume and drift partner and I were Isabelle Hartley and Victoria Hand because look how alive.
Acquisitions. Look at that awesome rubber knife she found ’cause Isabelle doesn’t like guns.
Acquisitions and already-haves (the purple blouse is the latter). The pink bits are extensions that are separately pinned in. Also, that lipstick shade is called As You Want Victoria.
Saturday, in which friend was Rey (and how do we not have pictures? It is a mystery) and we were Nymeria Sand and Daenerys Targaryen once again, this time with modifications.
This one was overhauled. Notable updates include the belts and the buckles (hand-done by myself with clay and paint).
Modifications include the wig (extensions were sewn in for braids) and the ring (because now that there’s been a notable closeup I felt compelled).
Sunday, today, wherein friend was Bucky, drift partner was Natasha, and I was undercover-at-Hydra Bobbi.
A new tactical suit for Natasha! Also a new wig.
So. I have low-key been actually teaching myself escrima moves over the last few months. My batons are actual practice batons (foam, but they’d hurt if I hit you properly with them), although I added the caps with foam and duct tape (they also have taser jewels on the tops). The boots and jeans were already had, the tank top was acquired, the jacket was one I already had that we sewed the leather onto, and the wig is the same one I used above for Victoria and at Halloween for Wanda. And I’m really freaking proud of this one, guys. There’s also a baton holster on my back, not that you can see it here.
Con notes: childhood heroes (Christy Carlson Romano of Even Stevens, Linda Ballantyne [who is not Emily Ice Tits, but was Sailor Moon in the latter seasons] and Susan Roman of the original Sailor Moon dub) were wonderful, Nathan Fillion was a sweetheart, Elden Henson was also a sweetheart. Other people were charming, though I know less about them and feel less qualified to comment. Fun was had, many a thing was purchased. All the usual goodies.
