I think it's safe to say that this year's Coast City Comicon was a huge success. They did a marvelous job of pulling it all together and bringing in some very talented, huge named folk from all around the world. Needless to say, I had a blast working, selling my goodies and just mingling with everyone that showed up.
Last year I felt so underdressed, so I thought I'd kick it up a notch. Decided to go as one of my favorite villainous vixens, Poison Ivy.
It was quite the process. First off, unnatural hair color is a big no-no at my day job. Thank goodness for cheap colored hair spray (especially after Halloween when it goes down to 75% off)
Next, it was time to pop in my creepy costume contacts (or contact I should say, since wearing one is a whole lot less of a pain than wearing two..) and paint on the intense makeup, with some liquid latex.
|Not the best example of how the latex turned out, but you get the idea|
And oddly enough, I wasn't the only one there, seemed to be a relatively popular costume this year..
I also got to meet/snuggle up to pro wrestling legend Hacksaw Jim Duggan!
And I somehow wound up in a fist fight with honest Abe...
|I think I won?|
So yep, great success all around, and I can't wait til next year!
