that it was a pretty good week. Coffee was made. I was the only one drinking coffee again, except on that one day that I slept too long. There was no time for doing much of anything on that day.
On most days, I worked, slept, read books, took some pictures and watched Netflix. Also, I drove the kids to an activity or two. It was a pretty typical week . . .
Until Saturday . . . when we went to the Comic Con in Columbus. It was just Lucas, Eva and I this time.
Eva dressed up like Super Girl. We forgot the cape but no one cried about it. She still looked really cute. She’s still a little shy about asking people to take pictures with her.
I dressed up like Lois Lane. Well, like Lois Lane if she were a hipster or a retro hipster. It worked. No one cried about it.
I tried to get Lucas to dress up like Clark Kent. He didn’t think he looked enough like Clark Kent to pull it off. (He would make an excellent Lobo though. He also does not want to dress up like Lobo. Maybe it’s too much leather?
I spent most of the time looking for a Superman so Eva, aka Supergirl, could have her picture taken with him. Superman is an elusive being. I could not find him anywhere.
I couldn’t even find Clark Kent. I still have his name badge.
If you want to know about how to make DIY Halloween costumes, Pinterest is full of ideas as usual.
P.S. My boyfriend does not want to do any of them. Maybe Clark Kent will go with me next year.
Finally!! We found Superman . . . with Wonder Woman, of course.
If I were single, I would take advantage of all of the Cosplay workshops so that I could prepare for the Sci-fi speed dating session and photo ops. Kate Beckinsdale would be my #1 choice for photo ops this year. John Barrowman is a close second.
First, I would attend the workshop with cosplayer Britt Bliss called “How to Draft and Underbust Corset.” It’s for anyone interested in learning how to make their own corset. Anything that will help make you look good in your photo op with Kate Beckinsdale is worth your time.
Then it’s time to decide between going to the “Working with Worbla” Coplay workshop with Mogchelle for making your own armor. I’m not even sure what worbla is so maybe I’ll check out the speed dating session. (FYI: After googling, I discovered that worbla is not a sci-fi character.)
There are speed dating sessions for the LGBTPQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Pansexual and Queer/Questioning) community. I don’t fit into that category but I might stick around to make some new friends. Another speeding dating session will be held later in the day.
What do you do if you love cosplay but you’re broke? Attend the Cosplay on a budget workshop with Knightmage. He has some amazing costumes. His Spawn costume is beyond gorgeous. It’s ridiculous how much it blows my mind. Check out some of his pictures here:
If you’re a geek girl, like me, then you might enjoy the Geek Girl Brunch. There are probably refreshments and maybe you can make some friends that like the same geeky stuff that you do. Besides, you will need to build your strength for the . . . . Q & A session with Kate Beckinsdale.
