In my last post I mentioned that I was getting some costumes ready for Oz Comic Con. Well, it's now all over and done for another year! (I say that as though I actually went last year. Ha.) And here are some shots of the first of the two costumes I wore over the weekend.
Bah da da DAH ba da dahhhhhhh! And so on.
I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about this costume. There are a few things I'd like to tweak but I think it's fairly good. And someone who has been cosplaying Indy for years (I think) came over to tell me he liked my costume. And that it all looked great. So that was nice.
I'd initially been going for an Indiana Jones by way of Katharine Hepburn look but I'm not entirely sure that's what I ended up with. I suppose I wanted to marry the classic Indy (screen accurate Indy) costume with women's leisure/casual/sports-wear of the 1930s and my mind inevitably turns to Katharine Hepburn when I think of that style of clothing. I'd probably take this shirt in (or make a smaller one) next time but I was working to a pretty small budget.
"Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?"
I didn't take many photos of other people's costumes (again!) so the post is just all me...and it looks like the next post will just be me as well. It's still one of my goals to be more confident about taking photos of other people so...I'll get there. I hope.
Also, I'm sure I've asked the question before but do any of my readers cosplay (whether occasionally, like me, or not-so-occasionally)? This was only the second time I've really cosplay-ed so it's all still a bit daunting (and new in a fun way) to me.
