I think I can best sum up this years ConBravo in three pics:
Had a fantastic time! Ran around as Spider-Man on Saturday and Peter Parker on Friday and Sunday.. Did some photoshoots, so some really nice pics will be coming eventually. Entered the masquerade, won best master class workmansip, and got to hang out with con friends and had much fun! I love this con so much because it is not too big, but there is always stuff happening. Also, I have so many friends there and I love seeing them, talking to them, playing Cards Against Humanity with them, and generally enjoying their awesomeness.
While at Atomic Lollipop this past weekend, I met an awesome Gwen Stacy cospalyer and we got some really nice shots from the talented Rajeeman Photography. He posted these entirely untouched shots recently and I loved how they came out! High res shots will be out later apparently, and I cannot wait to see them!
Atomic Lollipop is held at the Ontario Science Center.
The Ontario Science Center is frequented by families with young children a lot, and even more so on the weekends, and even MORE SO during the summer.
I got there at 11am dressed as Spider-Man. Those many kids mostly believed I was Spider-Man. So I was in character as Spidey until 6pm when all the kids left.
Spider-Eyes! Printed out the eye frames last night, spent this morning shaping, sanding and priming them, and then painted them up. After they were all cleaned up, I added in the mesh lenses I made earlier, covered them in a clear vinyl coating, and attached them to the frames. Cleaned them up a bit more and now they are all set.
Spider-Man is a costume I have always wanted to do. And when I say “always”, I mean there are pictures of me from age 2 where I am in Spider-Man costumes, and when not in costume, Spidey shirts, pants, suspenders (yeah, I was also dorky), sunglasses, running shoes, backpack, you name it, I had it and wore it.
So when I finally became well enough, and confident enough in my sewing capabilities, I ordered the Spider-Man subdye pattern from GunHead Design, and got it printed at Fabric On Demand, and here we are! I still need to add proper soles to the feet and attach my eye pieces to the mask. And probably get a face shell? Maybe? I dunno.
Anyway, SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS ONE!!
