NYCC 2011 - Saturday : the Boyfriend Wonder & I as Aquaman & Mera!
I’ll post a full convention wrap-up of New York Comic Con in the near future, but for now, here are some of my favorite shots of our OUTRAGEOUS cosplay as Aquaman and Mera :) I redesigned Mera’s classic costume into a halter dress, and created my dress, crown, and Aquaman’s shirt. I made my Mera earrings from custom-ordered gold mirrored acrylic pieces that I attached to earring posts, while I used the Wonder Woman cuff set that I got from H&M as my bracelets. After a failed attempt to make boot covers out of a white spandex that was just slightly too sheer, I ended up wearing a pair of gold shoes that I got from Forever 21 last Winter. As for our tridents, Andrew found them at a costume shop, which he painted gold.
On a side note, my goal next year (or before I wear this costume again) is to make the white boots that I originally designed to wear with this dress, and to perfect the art of balancing big hair and disco collars.
