This iReport is part of an assignment:
Dragon*Con costumes and more
This will be my third year at Dragon*Con, and one of the many costumes I'm bringing will be the X-Men character Storm, who is one of the hallmarks in the realm of powerful female comic book characters. I've always loved Storm, because she is in complete control of herself and her surroundings - I mean, she can literally make it rain - and I strive to incorporate even just a little of her grace and strength into my every day life.
Storm took me weeks to put together - from accessories and styling the wig to sewing the cape and making sense of that headpiece. Dragon*Con is widely regarded as one of the top costume conventions in the country, and I can't wait to hit the floor wearing one of my favorite characters!
Dragon*Con 2012 or BUST!
