Hello out there in Blog land, while I'm waiting to find out who I'm spoilling I thought I'd share pictures from last weeks conventions. I love making costumes and wearing them, I wish I had some better pictures of these but for now these will do:
This is my King Baldwin IV costume from the film Kingdom of Heaven. My friend took this picture while we where waiting for the elevator to arrive. I wish she had told me the fabric at the front and poofed out. Oh well. My next project will be an over robe for this, well next after I make a new Snape costume for the last two films :)
For the parade I wore my Sharaz Jek costume to march with the Doctor Who group. Don't worry if you a fan of Doctor Who and you haven't heard of this character. He was in only one story arc so unless you've seen the fifth Doctor's last episodes you would not have seen him. I fell in love with the character after seening the story and made the costume last year. Unfortunantly the costume did not surrive this years parade, there had been a few rips in the body suit before the parade started but after the photo shoot I threw the suit away. :( sadness. I'll likely try and find something better to replace it. I've kept the mask, belt, and neck piece though.
Last but not least my favorite
and longest running costume the Phantom of the Opera. My friend took these for me as refrence shots for my costuming blog. I'm hoping I'll find some from the day I wore it during the con because I went whole hog on the make-up. This costume gets the best reaction, ratehr then people wanting a picture of me they want pictures with me . It's my favorite now and forever, you have no idea how much fun it is to prowl around in a long cape.
And there you go that was my labor day weekend
