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…
