As I was sewing Prototype Beta of my body suit, it occurred to me that sewing must be a superhero ability, and a pretty common one at that! I mean, superheroes can’t exactly take their outfits to a seamstress or tailor to get them fixed or duplicated.
On the weekend of June 1-3, the Museum of Natural History in Halifax, Nova Scotia, held an event called Gus-Con. It was 3 day event filled with lectures, presentations and panels that pays tribute to the Comic Book Convention that has become such a popular and important part of the Sci-Fi world (schedule at bottom). The name honoured the museum’s Gopher Tortoise, Gus. The exhibit featured a variety of costumes, which you can see in my gallery below, but Gus-Con added to that by having talks, displays, special exhibits, contests, a costume ball, etc.
