Comic Con Day 4: Girl On Fire Katniss.

Guys, little girls came running up to me and asking me to not only take pictures with them, but to sign their character autograph books, too! All the feels. One girl who looked to be about seven years old pointed her sister out (Sister was hiding behind Mom's legs and did not want to join us), and I said, "Aww. That's okay, she doesn't have to be in the picture with us. I bet you love her lots, huh?" Little Girl said yes. I asked if she'd volunteer as tribute for her younger sister, and she said vehemently, "Oh, YES." :) Brave little munchkin!

They liked my costume so much at the Lionsgate booth that they took me behind the ropes and brought back out the Capitol guards to take pictures with me (the guards had gone on break, but the Lionsgate people said they were trying to get pictures of "the best Katnisses" with the guards, so they brought the guys back!).





Comic Con Day 3: Steampunk Batman Villains.

This may have been the most fun day of all four! We had twelve geeks dressed up as steampunk Batman characters...mostly villains (Scarecrow, Bane, Riddler, Joker, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Freeze, and Penquin), with a few of the good guys thrown in just to make sure it was an even fight (Batman, Robin, and Batgirl).

We even won a costume competition!








.....suckers let me into a stadium again..... Bwahahahahaha. ;)





Comic Con Day 2: Roaring 20s X-Men Mash-up.

Since it's so hard to replicate a character exactly, we like to take a different spin on things, and allow ourselves some creative license in our cosplay. This year's Friday at SDCC we decided on a Great-Gatsby/Downton Abbey time period for the X-Men. We had Psylocke, Dark Phoenix, Emma Frost, Jubilee, Wolverine, Mystique, Rogue, Gambit, and Cyclops. This was the result!





Comic Con Day 1: Leia Ironman Mash-up.

It's been so long since I posted! I do have a few exercise games in mind, and will be putting them up over the next few weeks. For now, the reason for my two-month absence was all the crafting and costuming I was doing for Comic Con, and I want to share my finished products!

Day 1 was Superhero Star Wars mash-ups. We had a Jedi Joker, Training-Luke Captain America, Deadpool Han Solo, Batman Classic-Leia, and multiple Slave-Leias: Ironman, Superman, Spiderman, Thor, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern. This concept was so popular last year that we wanted to do it again!
