Dragon*Con costumes and more
Dragoncon Anticipation (Part 2)
I've also been asked, what is the most difficult part about putting my costumes together? I would say there's probably two. It's always tough to get good reference shots of a costume I am trying to do. Whether it's based on a toy, comic book or movie, seeing all angles and getting everything right can be very difficult depending on the reference material available. And I feel, personally, if I cannot pull off a costume accurately, I'd rather not bother at all. A second obstacle I have, is that my size (6'3" 300 lbs) limits the availability of "off-the-shelf" parts that will fit and usually requires special fabrication or tailoring of parts to fit me right.
