2013: Costuming Year in Review
-Chekov: Star Trek (Reboot Universe) group at Dragon*Con 2013. Probably the most fun I had at that con. Will be returning next year with a full group (and hopefully upgraded costumes). Group includes Socies, Rogue, Jesse, Cat, and two folks who are too cool for tumblr.
-Nightwing: I roomed with the Canadian Crew, which means I had to steal their “traveling pants” Nightwing costume. Had way too much fun in it. Taster for something that’ll hopefully happen at some time in the near future.
-Spider-Man: First debuted last year, this year it returned with new webshooters and a better fit. Expect more Spidey-Stuff in 2014.
-Robin: August saw the Last Hoorah of my Robin suit before I retired it. Will be putting it up for sale later this year to help fund my Winter Soldier project!
-Ferris Bueller: A costume I’ve been wanting to do for a while, I finally decided to put it together for Halloween this year. It made a comeback at SMF, where I supposedly danced on the bar to Twist & Shout in front of everybody.
-The Eleventh Doctor: Put together on a whim for my friend Claire’s Sci-Fi birthday costume-party, and then brought back for a Halloween party. I don’t know if it will ever get worn to a con, but it was a lot of fun.
-Wiccan: Commissioned from my friend Meredith Placko, this suit debuted at Big Wow in May, and then came back for D*C. Will hopefully be getting some upgrades before I do a Wiccan/Speed photoshoot next year, and then I’ll probably be selling it.
-Dipper Pines: Relatively thrown together to do a shoot in the woods with Kelby and a bunch of our other friends. These will be coming back…just not like this.
-Scott Pilgrim: I have yet to wear it to a con, but it was one I decided to do, partially because my friend Ashleigh inspired me to, and partially because it was super easy. I have a wooden katana that just needs the heart added to it. Will probably debut some time next year.
-Jon Snow: My Big Project of 2013. A combined effort by myself and my friends Claire Max, Panda, Brittany, and Martha. Special thanks as well to Murphy who was incredibly helpful. Currently in the upgrade stage for a really cool photoshoot we’ll be doing early next year.
AND NOW ONTO 2014!
