As I mentioned in my last post, I went to Supanova over the weekend and that I'd be blogging about my costumes as soon as it was all over. So here is a look at my costume for Saturday (I only ended up wearing one and not the other as I didn't feel well on the Sunday).
Roswell is one of my all-time favourite TV shows so I decided to do Liz’s Crashdown Cafe uniform - it's actually been on my 'costume ideas' list for quite a while now. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people who not only recognised my costume but were pretty excited to see it, too! One lady said she hadn’t seen a Roswell reference in years and thanked me. It was pretty neat to be able to connect to people over a favourite TV show, especially one that doesn't get as much love as others that aired at around the same time. My mother and I put quite a bit of work into this costume and I’m really happy with how it turned out (though I'll be looking for a taller bopper headband for next time I wear this).
For anyone who hasn't seen Roswell I've included a shot of Shiri Appleby as Liz Parker in her Crashdown Cafe uniform below (though it doesn't show the apron, unfortunately).
And here are a small number of photos I actually managed to take whilst at Supanova.
This signed photo of Dean Cain made me feel nostalgic for watching Lois and Clark with my mum when it was on TV. I haven't watched it in years - I wonder how it holds up?
I don't know this girl but she was dressed as Gaz from Invader Zim! My friends and I used to be somewhat obsessed with this show as teenagers and Gaz was always a favourite character of mine.
Obligatory Dalek shot...
My friend Abi as Princess Aurora.
My friend Shea as Buffy the cheerleader (from the episode Witch).
And James Marsters!!! His panel was incredibly entertaining - it was the only panel I went to on Saturday but I'm glad I chose this one.
I think I went a bit overboard with the editing on some of these photos - oops! I didn't realise until after I'd uploaded them all but hopefully they still look OK...I'll try to get the second post done soon. My outfit was more vintage inspired (& therefore more relevant to why I started this blog) than this one.
