We’ll be at the convention Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I made some new upgrades to Jason’s Winter Soldier (and an alt costume) and made a new body suit for my Black Widow. Just need to finish the sleeves and put some gussets in the armpits.
Also, made a Hawkeye for our friend who will be joining us on Saturday. Come say hi!
Because I can’t resist the arm. Now lighter and cooler than ever.
I have to tell you, it was an experience. A fun one. Both Jason and I had cosplayed before, but never to the extent we had at Dragon Con. (Remind me to share those USO girl pictures. I’m still ridiculously proud of my hat.)
First thing we learned: Atlanta is HOT.
After our mild Philadelphia Summer, it was quite the system shock to walk through the heat of Atlanta in not so breathable costumes. But we persevered! Complaining got us through.
Once we got over that, Atlanta was a lot of fun. The architecture was beautiful, and there were some really fantastic restaurants. Also, that Aquarium? Fantastic. If you’re going to Atlanta, go to the Aquarium.
But, to the part that probably got you here: The Cosplay!
Jason and I went as the Winter Soldier and Black Widow. I made put both of these together (Jason got us our prop guns) and will go in to detail about the process in a later post. But for now, I wanted to say I’m still here and show off some pictures. And I apologize in advance for the weird faces I make in pictures.
We also met this wonderful Captain America Cosplayer. Check out his FaceBook Page!
Did you take a picture of us or with us? I would love to see it! Let me know and I’ll link back to you.
