John and I spent most of the drive to and from Awesome Con discussing who we would dress up as if we were ever to join the cosplay world. I’m not saying we’re close to that or anything – if I had a favorite character in the whole wide world, I could see it happening, but I don’t feel that strongly about any of them. (It’s the same kind of feeling I have about tattoos, only less permanent.)
But it is fun to think about it. If I were going to stick with current Marvel characters, Peggy Carter would be a contender. Not too hard – ’40s hair, blue suit, red hat.
Black Widow cosplay pretty much means a black spandex jumpsuit, and I just don’t see that happening.
Dr. Horrible, Amy Pond, Zoe from Firefly – I could do it, but I don’t feel like I have the devotion a lot of cosplayers have. I’d be buying stuff, not making it…. For the time being, I’ll just keep appreciating everyone else. Oh, like this little girl and her dad from Awesome Con.
