May 18th and 19th was MCBA Spring ComiCon, and the first day was my debut of my Gamora costume! My belt is still being made, so I used a belt bag instead.

I ran into my friend and artist, Matt Eng, and bought one of his “It’s a Rap!” Admiral Ackbar/RUN-DMC mash-up magnets (best purchase ever).
And…I sort of accidentally won third place in the costume contest. I say “accidentally” because I had zero plans of entering a costume contest. Considering how well (not well at all) my previous attempts at competitions went, I’ve kind of been avoiding competitions. But, they asked if I’d enter and I did, just for kicks. I ended up winning third place, which was pretty damn cool!
This one’s going on the fridge!
And a ribbon! Neat!

For the second day, I wore my comics version of Black Widow. I was a bit tired because I did a volunteer event that morning, too. I still had a great time, though!
On May 4, I did a record number of four events in one day. That means I was in my full Twi’lek makeup for about 14 hours. (Lesson learned: I won’t do that again.) But, as “May the Fourth” is a holiday for us Star Wars nerds, I thought I’d “go big or go home.”
