I friggen lost my mind when Kelly Sue DeConnick showed up at the Marvel shoot at DragonCon. Contagious Costuming caught my uncontrollable fangirling. I am not ashamed.

I know I mentioned it on here, but i forgot to post the photos! I met the ever talented and beautiful BelleChere at Boston Comic Con this past weekend! I try hard to be cool then i leave my purse under her booth and have to run back all frazzled to go and get it. I leave amazing impressions!

I loved your Magik! Thank you for stopping for a pic! I honestly had no idea about your bag - I was just SO happy it was still there when you came to retrieve it.

The CosView found me at Boston Comic Con and essie-cosplay conducted an interview with me! In it we talk about how to react to cosplay naysayers, body image, cosplay names, and future cosplays. I felt super comfortable in this interview! Also, I believe they filmed the ‘So They Say You Shouldn’t Cosplay’ panel I helped run, yay! I’ll post that when/if it pops up. :)

I believe in the phrase ‘Art imitates life’, which is why I relate to the term ‘artist’ over ‘entertainer’. It’s always hard for me to say what my favorite character or costume I’ve made is because it’s most times a visceral thing for me.

This is 2014 so far. Lust, Abaddon, and Hela are three out of the four new costumes I’ve made for myself this year. Red Sonja and Captain Marvel were photoshoots. I see a lot of vindictiveness, and hurt, and anger.

Then I look at the costumes I’m enthused to be currently working on for myself - Diva Plavalaguna, Edward Kenway, Barbarella, Gambit’s jacket, Witchblade - and I feel like I’m headed in a better direction. Ready for adventure.

Cosplay can be pretty damn cathartic.

This is quite a popular fancast tbh

Katee Sackhoff as Colonel Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel

My dream casting.

Mine too!

The Jess to my Carol; the Spider-Woman to my Captain Marvel! I had the best time at Denver Comic Con paling around with my friend mylifeasaweapon.  This person is a great example of the beauty of friendships made from chance meetings at conventions. It was Sunday evening last DragonCon, I didn’t want the con to be over, I was waiting for friends who I weren’t sure were going to show up, and I had too many troubling personal things on my mind. Up comes this sweet stranger who remarked I was looking a little sad, but who loved that I was dressed as Catwoman. It immediately lifted my spirits! We got into a nice, long conversation. Li’l Loki and I have been in contact ever since, and I leaped at the chance to do this collab. My favorite comic friendship! It fits us pretty perfectly. Thank you to WeNeals Photography and Retouching for the pic! I love having moments like these captured.  Captain Marvel mask made by 4th Wall Design. Everything else made by the respective costumers.

scip-scipio-a said: I just about died when I saw that you were coming to Denver Comic-Con. I'm so excited at getting the chance to not only meet you but see your work up close. What costumes will you be bringing?

Yay, Denver! :D It’ll be my first time visiting CO, and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m not a guest or anything, so I don’t have a table, but I’ll probably be easy to pick out on Saturday, for sure!

So, Capt. Marvel on Friday, Hela on Saturday. Sunday I’ll most likely not be there, cause I’m also going out there to visit my sister, I’ll want to go hiking with her, and Sunday looks like it’ll be beautiful. But if you see me, please come on up and say hi! :)

So I was filling out some paperwork for a convention and I was asked ‘Please provide pictures of three different outfits and include a description of the materials and techniques used in constructing them.’ I didn’t know what costumes to talk about, at first. Now I felt like the three I wound up choosing are a pretty good array, sooooo here, have a bit of insight. :)

Ivy Valentine (Soul Calibur 5 version) – Hours: ~120 Cost: $75 Sometimes some of the smallest costumes have the most construction to make sure everything stays in its appropriate place. Fabric: 3 types of spandex, microsuede, silk, lace. The combination of stretch fabrics with non-stretch fabrics is always a struggle, and atop of that there was piping in between the paneling. Most of the construction was done on my serger, sewing machine, and details were sewn by hand. The pattern for this outfit was entirely drafted by me. All of the fabric of this outfit started off white and I hand-dyed it all to achieve the perfect colors. Armor: Wonderflex covered in metallic spandex, and the shoulder piece was sculpted from expanding foam, wonderflex, and epoxy putty. Sword: Insulation foam covered with polyethelene sheeting, with coil conduit for the ‘whip’, with the pommel made of insulation foam, a wooden dowel, and decorated with pieces of polyethelene sheeting. Wig: Hand-cut and styled by me. Boots: These are boot covers, into which I slip a high heel of my choosing. Making bootcovers saves a lot of money – you can invest in one pair of great, comfy pumps, and slip them into all high-heeled costumes – and I would be happy to teach others how to make a money-saving bootcover pattern.

Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers version) – Hours: ~12 (Flame props: 30) Cost: $50 (Flame props: $40) Fabric: Navy is hand-dyed 2-way stretch wet-look spandex, the gold is 4-way stretch shiny moleskin spandex (the same gold I used on my Ms. Marvel/Warbird costume, which tied two costumes of the same character together), and the red is 2-way stretch faux leather. Constructed on my serger, the only hassle was combining 2- and 4-way stretches, and fitting a 2-way stretch fabric to my bust, which was achieved by patterning panels that would fit my bust without compressing it. The gloves were made by me, with finger gussets and fully functioning buttons. The boots were painted to match using Nu-Life leather spraypaint, with aesthetic buttons hand-sewn on. The wig was a combination of two wigs, weaving wefts of long hair down the center of a short wig, then styling it into a faux-hawk. While the flame effect has been enhanced by the photographer, they are props I made using theater lighting gel – forming them into ‘flames’ using a heat gun, then adhering them to a Wonderflex base (the tutorial for which can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/bellecherecostume/photos/a.10151351721546130.1073741827.224399206129/10151352837586130/?type=3&theater). The cowl is made out of silicon, made by 4th Wall Designs.

Red Sonja - Hours: ~75 Cost: $60 The bikini top and loincloth/bottoms were made from a base of brown microsuede, atop of which I hand-stitched over 750 nickle-plated mild steel scales (purchased from theringlord.com). It weighs about 16 lbs. and is tied with reinforced leather strapping. I test ALL my costumes out before attending a convention, to ensure no ‘wardrobe malfunctions’ happen, by the by. Gloves were made out of the same brown microsuede, as well as the boots – the soles of which are water shoes, which is another cost effective way to sole a costume shoe. The shoulder, thigh, and arm bands are made from Wonderflex, covered in metallic spandex.
