Have you ever designed a cosplay costume from scratch? Like, created your own character and dressed as that? I know that’s sort of not the point of cosplaying, but I think it’d be neat if it was a more common thing.
I’ve never cosplayed a character that I’ve created and designed myself, however I do have a few design ideas for an original Betty Felon superhero costume that I would love to fully conceptualize and create at some point. At previous conventions, I’ve encountered a handful of cosplayers who dress up as their own original characters. It’s a great way to expand your costume choices outside of preexisting characters, as well as guaranteeing that no one else will be cosplaying the same character.
Where did you find those amazing Booster Gold and Blue Beetle pins and in general, where do you find cool comic related accessories? I can never find anything like that unless someone direct links me to the store
I commissioned the Skeets and BB scarab brooches from an artist who works with laser-cut acrylic artwork; you can probably commission something similar via Etsy Alchemy Requests. As for comic-related accessories, check out the artist alley at conventions, craft fairs, comic shops, Etsy, eBay, and pop culture retail stores like Newbury Comics and Hot Topic.
monicamorrell asked you:
Anything Starling/Birds of Prey, inspired?
Nothing at the moment, though I’ll keep an eye out for any Starling-inspired fashion. For now, you can find posts related to some of the other members of Birds of Prey located in the Style Index :)
