Snow day became successful work on cosplay day. Got super motivated by the ECCC Carol Corps party release, though I didn’t work on my Captain Marvel outfit. I did, however, cut out most of my armor for Sif. I still have to figure it how to make the top piece of the corset and finish the outline for get shield, but I ran out of foam. Next step is to gesso and form the foam too prep for painting. I also rewatched Thor to get a better idea of the movement involved with her skirt. Mostly done with that now, I’m using a cheerleader pattern as a pattern and it works better than it has any right to. Done with snow. Is it March yet?
I promised myself I wasn’t gonna get hardcore into the comics thing and then, because I have no impulse control. I totally did. And now people go to the shop and call me when there’s a sale because they know I’ll want to own things but can’t be bothered to get off my butt and go myself.
"I’ll just buy the Loki things," I promised. But Hawkguy is super good. And I love Captain Marvel. And suddenly Young Avengers. And Valkyrie. And Black Widow. And random Namor.
So today I have spent around $100 on comics without leaving the comfort of my office. Considering they’re selling hardcovers (some around $40 each) for $10 at Newbury Comics… I can’t say no.
