I can’t believe I haven’t talked about nerdy tattoos yet. I have mixed feelings about tattoos. I love them on other people. I think they are so cool and interesting. Except face tattoos. I also hate face cakes, the ones with the edible pictures on them, so maybe it’s just a face thing. I really want to get one in theory but I’m terrified of needles. I also know for me I would probably get bored with the design. When I get a manicure I’ve spent too much money on it to pick it off and change the color but after a certain point that’s all I want to do. I can’t imagine putting something on my body I can’t change.
I love the vinyl stickers you see on people’s laptops and cars. Right now I have Batman on my computer, I used to have a TARDIS but it was injured in a tragic laptop accident and had to be replaced. I know I can make them myself and 8 bucks a pop at comic cons are way over priced since they’re less than $3 anywhere else, but when they’re standing there looking so colorful, it can be so inspiring, just thinking about all of the places I can put them. I am looking for these stickers now.
They also make them bigger for people to put on their walls. Nerd fashion isn’t just confined to clothes, everything can be nerded up these days.
Couples costumes are some of the best costumes for comic cons. For last comic con I created a Green Arrow and Black Canary costume for my parents, I’m currently working on a Battlestar Glacatica costume for my boyfriend and me. My friend and I did a Batgirl and Robin for Halloween a couple of years ago. Couples don’t have to be a couple , I’ve seen twin brothers and sisters do Luke and Leia. Fathers and sons can do Batman and Robin, which is awesome. (RIP Damien Wayne) Groups of friends can be the crew of Serenity.
I don’t know these kids, I just think it’s one of the cutest cosplays ever.
It’s not that cosplay isn’t fun on your own but if you can have someone doing it with you it gets more fun. I enjoy going out in costume with my friends and acting as if nothing is different about us. It’s fun just to be different sometimes. What are some of the fun things that you and your friends have done?
