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.”
This was supposed to have been a prototype for my winter Matrix coat, for fit. However, I got what I wanted out of it part way through, fitting the top properly, so I improvised some design to it rather than the all black Matrix coat. Next thing I knew, I got a coat I couldn’t let go and ended up with what I call my vampire hunting jacket for its strategically placed silver highlights, by which vampires would be repelled.
Pyjamas are all too boring these days. So when I recently saw some great cheap $3 a metre fabric that screamed out pyjamas at me, I bought it and made a set of custom fit designer pyjamas for myself.
