Last March I attended a CLUE Party, and costumes were required. That happens to be my favorite sort of party. I chose Miss Scarlett without hesitation. The only rule was to wear at least one thing that represented the color of your chosen character.
Poison Ivy was my costume of choice for Wizard World Anaheim.
Donning this stormtrooper armor was more just playing dress up since I didn't wear it for more than 30 minutes (and yes, the legs are on backwards - I'm learning), but I think it counts!
Dressing up like the smarmy smuggler, Han Solo was my favorite and most comfortable cosplay of 2010. Putting on Solo pants for San Diego Comic-Con gave me a little extra confidence.
I've always loved the black corset gown Padmé wears in Attack of the Clones. This wasn't so comfortable, but I loved the end result. I wore this on day three of San Diego Comic-Con.
For Long Beach Comic Con, I quickly decided that a femme Indiana Jones was just the ticket. This one also succeeded at comfort, and I received compliments all day long.
Hogwarts student, House Ravenclaw
I simply had to go in costume to opening night of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows as a Ravenclaw student.
The plan for 2011 is a lot more ambitious (or crazy). I plan to make some higher quality costumes and improve upon some of these.
