Last fall, I was at Hal-Con, Halifax’s “comic-con”, where there were MANY FANTASTIC cosplay! You can check out the site for photos. I went as a Grand Moff (high ranking officer) from Star Wars, and here’s my cosplay. I have some adult jokes in this post, though, so if please don’t read on if you don’t like such humour.
I was in a St Patrick’s Day Parade with Hal-Con, the Halifax Comic Con group. For it, I created this Star Trek, the Next Generation jacket.
It is triple layered with pant weight, fleece and broadcloth on the outside. The dark green was a fourth layer. As it turned out, I needed all the layers as it was -8 C during the parade! I put jeweled shamrock in place of the Trek insignia, and had pips on during the parade with pointed ears.
“Red shirts get killed. Green shirts get lucky.”
Recently, I was privileged to be able to participate in the Halifax Natal Day Parade. I was with a float representing Hal-Con, Halifax’s sci-fi,fantasy & gaming convention run completely by much-too-dedicated volunteers. We had a truck and a whole bunch of people in cosplays of various style, including sci-fi, fantasy, steampunk, anime, board and video games, and some original characters. For the occasion, I made a pink “Pride in Star Trek” (The Next Generation) uniform, as shown below.
