MarsCon 2018

On March 2nd and 3rd, I attended MarsCon! It was a good time and I got to spend a lot of time with some friends.

Friday

I dug out my Scarlet Witch costume for the first time in a very long time! It was really fun to wear it again, and when I posted this photo to Facebook, a lot of people didn’t recognize me. Guess it’s kind of weird to see me with long hair.

Wigs make all the difference, I guess!

I stopped by the photobooth and had some nice shots taken of my costume by Scott Saniti:

Later in the evening, Lindsey took some nifty photos, playing around with my “hex magic”:

Saturday

On Saturday, I was part of two panels. The first one was “Cleavage Optional: Gender, Cosplay, and Genderbending Cosplay” and my fellow panelists were Justin Grays and Bridget Landry.

The first half of the panel went really well, and then an audience member asked a question about why genderbent cosplay is okay, but wearing makeup to change your ethnicity is not okay? In case anyone is wondering, this is what I look like when I’m trying not to channel Kylo Ren and flip a table over:

[screaming internally] – Thanks to Marie Porter for the photo.

Justin responded with tact and grace, and we moved on from that subject. Thankfully. Good lord. (You can listen to the audio of the panel here.)

Later in the evening, I was part of the “Star Wars: The Costumes” panel with Todd Murray, Jennifer McNitt, and Eve Zabronsky. That one went well, even though the majority of the audience were friends of ours.

The rest of Saturday was a bunch of shenanigans where Matt and I took “Father and Son” photos as Han and Kylo, and then Lindsey took some awesome photos of my Kylo costume. See below the cut for a dump of silly and awesome photos!

Of COURSE Kylo drinks rosé Angry Orchard.

Kylo sang Radiohead’s “Creep” at karaoke, because, of course he did.
