Woo, I’m excited about HeroesCon coming up in June! I’m redoing most of my first Donna Troy costume I originally made in 2007 for the occasion. I’m redoing the top of the suit to the version in the art on the right. I ordered new boots, the old ones are boot covers I made. I also ordered new star earrings and an eagle pendant. I’ve got a bunch of rhinestones on their way that I’m going to add to the suit. I got a new wig several months ago. And I’m planning on making a new better belt buckle and bracers.
It was great getting to see George Perez yesterday!
Tentative 2013 Costume Plans
Aquaman & Mera (w/Allen) - status: just have swatches so far.
Spider-Woman - status: have wig and fabric, need to get sewing!
Time Turner - status: have scarf, need to design outfit next.
Donna Troy - status: altering and redoing bits of my old costume!
Operetta - status: have wig materials and maybe pants, need so much more!
I’m feeling good about my craftsmanship skills to get all this done. Although sometimes I get really overwhelmed thinking about Operetta since she needs so much! Just all the makeup supplies I’ll need is a lot of stuff and that’s not even getting into other things like custom printed fabric. But anyone who knows me knows how much I love Monster High, so I really want to do what I can to cosplay her this year.
Yesterday I was part of the Children’s Christmas Parade as Wonder Girl along with other friends from Heroes Alliance. I had a great time! One of the highlights of the day for me was meeting Barack Ollama! There was a group of llamas and their handlers dressed in Christmas gear who were also part of the parade.
