Fun Times in Fantasy Worlds~*~ from Sci-fi to DIY

Dragoncon 2018, packed with fun and friends.

I’m getting behind on posting here on the blog.. mostly trying to keep up on Instagram, but wanted to get here here before I lost the pics! This year was split 1/2 with my friend Robin, and 1/2 with my youngest. The teenager opted out of going this year:(

I brought old standby classic Wonder Woman, comfy Spider Gwen, my teenager’s Riverdale Veronica, as well as a few new exciting costumes! Lady Death Bunny was my super cool bunny hutch costume, the green Absinthe fairy, the sand snakes from Game of thrones for Robin and I, Margot Tennenbaum, AND …. Eleven from Stranger things and Mary Poppins for the 8 year old!

She did the Masquerade costume contest and although she didn’t win, was inspired to make her own costume for next year and do it again! We packed a lot in, and had more fun than ever this year.

Highlights were hanging with Wonder Woman Artist George Perez and the WW photo shoot, brushing shoulders (almost ) with Peter Capaldi (while waiting to enter his panel), and everyone loving my little Mary Poppins!

Getting the hotel room for Tuesday/chill out day was a bonus. It’s quite a hard transition back to real life after such a thing like dragoncon!

SC Comicon 2018

Cary Elwys, Groot, Stranger things, and more. This was a fun quick trip with the girls. One of their heroes is Westley from Princess Bride, so of course we had to get a picture! I also was able to meet the Spider Gwen artist Rico! 🙂

Halloween 2017, Diana and Steve!

I made a newer version of the B v S Wonder Woman costume. It is foam over a corset base. The boots and accessories were made or worbla (still getting the hang of working with this.) My Steve was just a thrown together outfit and some tee shirt leg wraps 😉 it rained so we didn’t do the Wild Rumpus Athens Parade.

Dragoncon 2017, so many costumes, so much fun!

The parade was pretty awesome to walk in this year… it is super fun to go as a recognizable character that the kids love. Many high fives and hugs going around ❤️

My one big panel choice had to be Matt Smith. The 11th Doctor. My favorite!

the girls both wanted to be Suicide Squad Harley Quinn. They had a blast doing the big group shoot and got featured on the scifi channel! I finally finished this Once Upon a Time costume of bandit Snow White. Not as much fun as I had hoped so this one got sold pretty soon after :/. and another costume I worked for a long time on and just didn’t really enjoy wearing. Katniss from Hunger Games (Catching Fire chariot dress.). It lit up like fire and fit well so I actually ended up wearing it to a Christmas party later that year 🙂 I skipped the bunny hutch this year because I had the kids with me on Thursday, but am looking forward to next year.

Batgirl: 2017 to current

Still loving this Batgirl costume! It wasn’t make by me, I got it a while ago secondhand. I did make the helmet out of duck tape! It’s been fun making appearances as her, especially at RUSH trampoline park 🙂

More cow-Belle at the Wild Rumpus 2016

Inspired by one of my favorite SNL skits with Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell.  “More Cowbell.”  My partner in crime was the Reaper, taken from the title of the song “Don’t Fear the Reaper.”  We had a blast and folks got the joke!

Girls were the “We Bare Bears” brothers and even managed to do the bear stack!

Armored Wonder Woman, 2016 Fort Clinch State Park

Here are some scenic shots of my still in progress original design Wonder Woman armor. Thanks to Deborah for taking them.  Sunset on the cove at Fort Clinch on Amelia Island was perfect. I now have a hooded cape to go with this outfit, so will add on photos with that at a later date.
