San Diego Comic Con 2009

Whoo Hoo- I Heart San Diego!
This was my first ever trip to the great (broke) state of California, and it was just as beautiful as I always thought it would be. I don't care how many times I have seen a palm tree- they still look completely bizarre to me. Our hotel was nice, but out on the freeway, but still had a nice view:

Off to SDCC

Tomorrow I am off to San Diego Comic Con.
Will return with lots of photos, and who knows what else.

Everyone keep your fingers crossed that I get a chance to enter the Masquerade.
I am also pleased to find that the schedule includes several panels that deal with costumes! Costumes on the brain all the time- keep it coming!
So, the big question, what will I be wearing? Well, I've got my own little costume schedule:
I finally made my Batgirl hoodie- check back later for pics.....

Saturday I will be wearing another Dr. Girlfriend outfit- luckily that gal has an extensive wardrobe..... here's a taste:
Ring any bells? Eh, you'll just have to wait to see the whole ensemble then. I'm going to do my best to make it to The Venture Brothers panel- but anyone who's ever been to a con when those boys are know that is no easy task. I suppose I'll have to queue up only 5 hours early......sigh.

Oh, and for the super-secret masquerade, you ask? Well, there is a chance that no one will get to see this costume. Here's a teaser:
So put out those good vibes that I'll be able to strut my stuff.

NCA Convention

The National Costumers Association Convention in Pittsburgh was a great experience for me. Sorry Pittsburgh, but I was there for all of 30 hours so I did not get to check out your city- but I did enjoy the myriad of food choices in your mall-like airport- and the T-Rex on display was cool too.....

Off to Pittsburgh....Let Hawkgirl & the Green Lantern Keep You Company

I'm on my way to go enlighten people on the wonderful concept of dressing up like a superhero. I have been preparing for this for quite some time, but it still feels like it came fast- that and all the conventions and a play I need to costume are all happening in the same 3 week period. Never fear! I've got a coffee pot, and I'll make it through somehow......
Well, let's check out how my friends are doing:
I think he's pleased.
What?! That ring (well, probably the jacket) had more power than I thought!

Let's see what Hawkgirl is up to:

Looking pretty awesome- don't fly away just yet!
And who could this be?
My very own GL Corps?
Not too shabby....
For my other buddies waiting for things I plead your patience. Upon my return from San Deigo things will go back to normal and I'll be locked in my workroom like the sewin' fool that I am.
Wish me luck on my presentation!
