That means it’s crunch time on getting things finished for my cosplay! Last week I ordered this 32″ AK47 SWAT Team Assault Rifle for my Black Widow costume. It was actually kinda hard to find a toy gun for whatever reason. Plus they wanted $10-$13 for shipping! Luckily the BFF has Amazon Prime and ordered it for me which saved me some money. Today I spent some time spray painting the “wood” black to give it a more bad ass look.
Not too shabby! I was even able to save 50% on the spray paint thanks to a coupon! I finally got around to ordering a wig for Rainbow Dash as well. I still need to put together a tank top for it and pick up some rainbow socks. I already have the shorts, wings, and tail! Honestly, those are the more important aspects of the costume.
C2E2 released their floor plans this week which means I’ve been studying it like I’ll be quizzed on it. I always like to have some idea of where I’m going floor wise. It’s actually pretty easy to get turned around when you’re trying to look at everything that’s going on. I have my panels selected as well even though this year feels a little light. I have my “typical” Marvel panels and a few others but nothing where if I miss it, I’ll be bummed. I actually see a lot of floor time in my future during this Con which is actually a good thing! I have a lot of friends that I want to catch up with and honestly, that’s the best part of any convention!
I am thinking about entering the Marvel booth cosplay contest though. I’m 99% sure I will but I’m just really nervous! There are some really great costumes out there and it can be really intimidating. Plus to be up on stage? I feel sick just thinking about it. I’ll just have to channel my inner Natasha though and get up there and kick some ass!
I just noticed I seem to write these posts when there’s 13 days to go. Hm, that’s odd and weird. Maybe 13 is my lucky number!
