Black Canary and Batgirl
Originally uploaded by innerbrat
While I absolutely adore dressing up, actual hobby cosplayers never fail to put me to shame; probably because I'm happy to stick a leather biker jacket over a shop bought leotard and call it a costume. I always intend to do more, but I'm too lazy sometimes. And as I spend my time helping at the stall, I've never seen a Maskerade or otherwise participated in cosplay so I have no idea what else people get up to.

Anyway, I still managed to get a few photos, and it was great to see a Batgirl who at least seemed to understand why it was so important to have a Black Canary-Batgirl photo. The Green Arrow was more impressed that I recognised her costume to express recognition as to who this woman in fishnets was.

In general, it was awesome to be in an environment in which wearing nothing but a leotard and fishnets seemed the most natural thing in the world. Now I just need to source some four way stretch vinyl and get to making a modern costume.

You look absolutely magnificent, and the whole thing looks like great fun.

Damn, if only I was a decade or two younger, and had the guts to stick on a Spider-Man costume! LOL

Why are you the only person smiling in any of those photos? Does it have something to do with the fact that you're awesome?

Riddler boy needs to shave his back if he's going to wear lycra, I'm just saying.

Hee. You look like you're having a TON of fun there!

And, hey, nothing wrong with that store-bought leotard. It's a great costume. =)

I like that Silk Spectre 1 is posing right in front of a Watchmen TPB! Looks like it was a lot of fun.

I knew you'd like! Gail Simone is an amazing writer, and her Birds is fantastic!
