From the 14th to the 16th, I was at this great cosplay event. I saw so many amazing costumes and meant excellent people. I’m waiting for some more pictures from it before I write up a recap, but I’m excited to tell you guys all about it!
In the meantime, though, I started thinking about a few cosplay-related things since then. Most had to do with the costumes I want to make in the future. After seeing a few costumes I loved, though, I started thinking about what costumes I would love to see. So here’s my list of 5 costumes I want to see IRL. These are costumes that will turn me into an instant fangirl on sight!
1. Original Nightwing
I love Nightwing. He’s one of my biggest comic book crushes. While Nightwing isn’t one of the most popular costumes at conventions, you do see a few of him around. However, you NEVER see the original Nightwing costume. And that’s just a travesty. LOOK AT HOW SNAZZY THIS IS.
Boston Brand is another of my comic book crushes–especially after the Brightest Day storyline. A little less after he proved himself to be kind of a sucky boyfriend in the beginning of Justice League Dark. Still, he’s one of my favorite characters (I took the surname Brand for my pseudonym), and I would freak if I saw him. I’ve been considering making a genderbent version of him, but it wouldn’t be the same as seeing him in the wild.
3. Black Lantern Anything
Blackest Night is probably my favorite comic book storyline of all time. In this story, our favorite heroes face the threat of their re-animated dead. Even those who had been dead at one point can be possessed by the power of Nekron, and become a black lantern. I love the design of the zombiefied DC characters, and I would completely freak out to see them. I’ve actually considered making a couple of the costumes myself, but I haven’t gotten around to it.
4. Locutus of Borg
I wouldn’t be able to deal with this without getting incredibly choked up (see my Top Five Moments in Geekdom that Scar Children), but this costume would still be amazing to see. It would be a showcase of mad cosplay skills, as well as excellent tast in characters.
5. Eowyn in Battle Armor
CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE HOW AWESOMELY BADASS THIS WOULD BE? I’m freaking out just thinking about it.
