We had a blast hanging out with nerds and bonding over the exhibits last night at @mopopseattle’s opening of the @marvel Universe of Super Heroes. Look at that little Natasha! She is about 5-6 years old and told me she likes making costumes! Her parents recognized us from @wizardworld last weekend and showed us photos of her Wonder Woman WHICH WAS ADORABLE!
My Deadpool sold his super suit, now I’m trying to decide if I should sell Vanessa... I really love the wig but have no real reason to wear it other than this cosplay, and cosplaying Vanessa without a Deadpool just means I’m walking around looking like a stripper.
Taking a short breather from the INFINITY WAR HYPE TRAIN OMGOMGOMG to remind everyone that it’s not cool to be an asshole. At Wizard World I was totally nerding out with these Robin and Nightwing cosplayers for like, a half hour. I legit can’t wait to see them at Rose City this fall (DC Friday, yeah?) Later I heard that a dude who had walked up to compliment my Catwoman threw shade at Nightwing’s build to another friend of mine. I wish I’d heard it because I’d have gone full slap down on him right then and there. Here is a college dude who handmade a cosplay and wore it to a con to celebrate his geeky fandom. That is fn awesome. Also, LOOK AT THIS PHOTO. JUST LOOK AT IT. He looks totally badass!
PAY ATTENTION BECAUSE I’M ONLY GOING TO SAY THIS ONCE PEOPLE. Build up other cosplayers. Nerd out and be encouraging, because we all started somewhere and that somewhere probably wasn’t even as good as this! Share skills and tips. And don’t be a dick. Unless you’re Nightwing, in which case you’re Dick with a capital D.
I am a spy. Not some rooftop-jumping archer, shield-wielding super-soldier, or shiny-metal philanthrobot. I need to make that clear on my business card. Espionage is shadow warfare. Cold combat. Does anything about this feel cold to you?
