...he's the greatest secret agent in the world!
So, I had initially decided to wear my Abaddon dress, again, for the second day of Supanova, as I felt it needed another outing. But between not having comfortable heels and not wanting to attempt the hair again, I decided not to after all. And then quickly scrambled to get another costume from my list done. Ha.
My inspiration for my second costume was one of my favourite cartoons that I watched as a child: Danger Mouse. It's essentially about a mouse who is a secret agent - kind of a parody '60s spy shows and movies like James Bond and Danger Man. It's a lot of fun and still enjoyable to watch as an adult, unlike some other shows I watched when I was little.
My first idea was to wear a turtle neck, white pants and white knee high boots but I thought a skirt might be cuter (and easier to find at short notice, which it was). I also wanted a white bobbed wig but I already had this one at home and I think it does the job well enough. The spats were another last minute 'winging it' experiment so they've now gone in the bin but at least they lasted the day.
The ears are just pinned in place with bobby pins. I'm really happy with how the DM symbol turned out. It really pops! Quite a few people were excited to see my costume, which made me really happy. All of them around my age or older - I guess Danger Mouse hasn't been shown on TV here for a while?
If you've never seen Danger Mouse, you can watch the theme above (which is awesome but not as great as the theme for it's spinoff Duckula). And then go watch it all on YouTube, or something, if you feel like it.
There wasn't a lot I wanted to buy at Supanova, this year. I was hoping at least one stall would have the DC Bombshell figures/statues but I only found Supergirl and Wonder Woman (who's pose and outfit is awesome, but her face doesn't do it for me). But I did buy this little Pop! Vinyl '66 Batman. I wanted the Catwoman and Robin, as well, but couldn't find one without too many flaws. I think the Funko designs are really cute but they're cheap and it does show in the quality of the products. He still looks good on my Bat-shelf, though.
And my favourite purchase! This piece, by Anthea Wright, had been up in Two Bit Villains during a SALA exhibition. When I saw it, I immediately fell in love. I'd intended to go back, but forgot. But Anthea Wright had a stall at Supanova and, luckily, Catwoman was there! Apparently she was the last of the smaller framed works left and was obviously just waiting for me to buy her. Huzzah! Now I just need to put her up on my wall.
