So we ladies are back from Dragon*Con 2012, which was its usual debauched affair. Slowed down a little by con crud, we still did our best to ~bring the party to you~ Spoilers: the party is a giant alien pokemon worm. But more on that later.
To tide you over till a proper cosplay & convention report, we have a few tidbits from instagram — follow us at whitehotroom. Not game? We also use twitter and tumblr to liveblog events, so come and join us there! <3
In anticipation of The Avengers release, I decided to pull together some outfits that were inspired by characters from the film, but that I could also go to class in without looking like I was trying to walk the runway. Sadly my Captain America earrings didn’t make it there in time, but that didn’t stop me from throwing my best salute!
What I wore for game day. And by game day, I mean Avengers as a cinematic religious experience.
But also! A handful of us bought this tee for casual SHIELD company hijinks at Dragon*Con last — you’ll see us sporting Maria Hill, Contessa, Clay Quartermain, and Jessica Drew, for a nice little grab bag of agents throughout the years. But as my everyday doesn’t lean toward basic tees, I decided to do a little scissor work. And so here we are.
Laura Kinney, aka X-23, has been a favorite of mine ever since she first appeared on X-Men: Evolutions. Her usual fashion sense (and costumes) tend towards leather pants and crop tops. Instead of taking the easy route, I decided to do an interpretation of her outfit from X-23 #1. While obviously my style’s quite different from Laura’s, I think I found a happy medium here between me and the character.
