You're standing on my neck

On the second day of Oz Comic Con my true love sent to me...wait, sorry, wrong time of year. As I was saying, my second costume for Oz Comic Con was Daria, the much beloved sarcastic cartoon teen of my generation. And my friend, Kate, who was the Bat-Ma'am to my Robin, dressed up as Jane with me.

My costume (and Kate's) was mostly put together from pieces found at op-shops and the like. The only effort I really had to put in, was to alter the jacket. It was taken in, the sleeves taken up and a new collar attached to look more like Daria's jacket.



Someone asked Kate how she got her hair so perfect and her reply was 'this is just how my hair always is'. Ha.
La la la la la...
As you can see, I'm not used to wearing glasses in photos and so there is a lot of reflection in the lenses. Oops.

The best part was, my friend and I spent most of the day sitting around making snarky comments and we weren't even trying to be in character. Are we really just Daria and Jane? We do love pizza and being sarcastic.

  2. I can always appreciate a great cosplay and this one is tremendous! Oddly enough, it makes me think fondly back to a few years ago when my old friend and I cosplayed Bill and Ted! :)

  6. You both look fantastic! A wave of nostalgia swept over me when I saw this post.
    This is really so cute, it inspires me to style some of my vintage outfits that I got from
    Vintage Swank . Just a little hairdo and I can be Helen Morgendorffer. :D
