Hi, My name is Alyssa,19, and this year I will be spending most of my Dragon*Con time cosplaying as Blaine Anderson from the hit TV show Glee. I chose this costume because it’s my favorite character on a show that is all about being yourself and showing the world who you are. The costume took over 100 hours of work, 10 different materials and lots of blood, sweat and tears (Oh, you thought I was joking about the blood? ) to create. One of my main reasons for cosplaying this character was because of ‘The Glee Project: Dragon*Con’ , a concept I’m using to showcase two flashmobs at the convention. The first is ‘Born This Way’ a flashmob about loving who you are and what makes you different. The second is ‘Misery’ one of Blaine’s favorite songs. I’m hoping to spread Glee’s message of acceptance at Dragon*Con: after all, you can’t find a more diverse group of people and interests than at Dragon*Con!
