Now that all the con reports from months ago have been taken care of, let's take a look at recent happenings!
A week and a bit ago was the big 25th Anniversary party for Lookin' For Heroes, a comic book shop in Kitchener. KW Iron Man (and Spidey and Deadpool) were invited to be there in costume, so I decided to dress up too. I could have cosplayed as Pepper Potts again, but as much as I love her, I'm more than Iron Man's accessory and I wanted to show that. I was hoping to finish a new comic-based costume, but I wasn't even close to done. Then I hit on Goldie... the Sin City sequel movie came out recently and I still had most of the parts of the costume I made back in 2006. I found some new pants to replace the originals and Mr Stark was accompanied by a hooker instead of his assistant LOL.
I'm actually planning on fixing up the pants to make them screen accurate, picking up some red shoes, and hopefully gathering some people for a Sin City shoot sometime in the next few months.
As for that other comics-costume that I didn't finish in time? I started actual work on that this week, starting with knitting a hat. Unfortunately, I realized this morning that I'm going to need to start over and make it bigger, but at least it's started! I have my fingers crossed that I will get Izabel from Saga done in time for halloween, but I have a (surprise) back-up costume in place XD
Unrelated to costumes, I should probably plug the "let's play" videos I'm currently doing with Dan the Video Ninja on his gaming channel. Last year we played LEGO marvel Superheroes together because Marvel is awesome and LEGO games are fun (especially when doing 2-player games). The highlights are below, but if you feel like watching the whole thing, it's available here.
This year we're attacking The LEGO Movie Videogame, where everything is awesome ~_^.
Here's the latest part, and new parts are added to the playlist every couple of days!
