What can we say — if she wears the star, our hearts are set. Nothing gets us going like a face turned toward the stars and a thirst for more, and the lady legacy of all Captains Marvel will always take us there. For superheroic cosmic style we turn to colourblocking and particular gold accents, and serve it up with a star.
Want more Captain Marvel? It’s kinda a thing we do.
Awesome Con 2014 in Washington DC is this weekend and Bria is totally psyched! She’s keeping it simple this time with a roster of Star Wars and X-men. As always, if you see her, feel free to come up and say hi!
Friday Afternoon: Look for the X-Factor group!
Saturday: In the morning, Bria will be Jaina Solo for a Young Jedi Knights group. She’ll also be on an ~awesome~ panel discussing Star Wars with Timothy Zahn, John ‘Dak’ Morton, and Blue Milk Special from 1:30-2:30 in Room 206. Later in the day, she’ll be switching back to Marvel as Sage.
Sunday: To wrap up the con, Bria will be roaming in an upgraded version of her Mara Jade.
When we first came up with the idea of doing a Morning Glories group, we had no idea how perfectly it would work. I mean, we’d all just become completely obsessed with these books after passing the trades back and forth faster than Quicksilver can run around the world so it was only natural that we’d want to do costumes from it. And to be honest, picking characters was pretty easy for us (okay fine, except for Nate) as we were all pretty close visual matches to our preferred characters to start with. So yeah. This was inevitable.
What we hadn’t initially realized when we decided to wear these for Eastern Shore Fan Con was how perfect the con’s location was going to be for pictures but once we did, we wondered how we could’ve considered anything else. After all, ESFC takes place at a local college campus and when the source comic takes place at a school… well, you get the point.
Thank you to Roger for taking the pictures for us! No but seriously: he deserves so much thanks because we all collectively looked insane during a large part of the shoot where we posed outside and he shot us from inside and one floor up. If only we all had a dollar for everyone time we heard the ‘Ohhhhh they’re taking pictures!’ of realization…
To see more from the shoot, head over to Zhobot!
While your esteemed editors may be sizing each other up across the Stark vs Lannister aisle, there are some houses from Game of Thrones that we do doubly root for — namely, House Tyrell of the fierce and fabulous ladies. With a nod to Margaery Tyrell’s most excellent portrayal by Natalie Dormer, we go modern with flirtatious femininity that takes from house sigils and colours.
