Day 1


Yesterday was day one of Comic Con.  Typically this is a day where there aren’t that many people dressed up here in Philly.  This year there were more than normal.  It’s a different feel this year.  More fan oriented less celebrity centric.  It’ll be fun to see where the weekend takes me.  For now here are some awesome cosplays from Thursday.

SteamPunk Duct Tape

Yesterday I was playing on stumbleupon and came across this picture



and then it occurred to me, duct tape corsets for Steampunk Star Trek.  My brother is going as a Klingon starfleet engeneer, a bit of a cross between Nog and  Worf, where I made his warrior’s sash out of soda top chain mail.  So now the plan is upcycled steampunk Star Trek.  Although I like the idea of getting real corsets I just can’t imagine spending so much money on a costume that I can’t really add into my everyday wardrobe.    Well, there’s a Star Trek Convention in the next town over from me this weekend celebrating Deep Space 9, let’s see if I can get it all ready in time.
