Batman in Black and White at ECCC

I love these black and white shots that my cool partner Scott took during Emerald City Comic Con. He went analog, and shot the con on his Canon AE-1. And I have to say, my batman costume looks pretty sweet in 35mm. Scott's been shooting a lot lately, and he posts everything to his flickr over here. He photographs all of our adventures, so I highly suggest following him. More photos to come, of course! Until next time, thanks for making me look so ~batty~ Scott!

Na na na na BATMAN!

I was happy to be starting off the Convention season with a BANG, BIFF, AND POW with my Batboobsman cosplay (or if you ask my friend Bill, "Bat Ma'am" – how he thinks of these things, I just don't know.)

My favorite bats are Adam West's and Bruce Timm's, so I tried to combine the two styles into one comfy original costume. Because I'm lazy, my bodysuit is the Gloria V from American Apparel. My sister emily helped me craft the cape (see her Lolita Bat here). The the utility belt is made of diving surplus webbing, vinyl, and plastic pencil cases! I'm hoping to add more accessories to this costume in the future, namely batarangs, a can of shark repellant, and a big-ol' paper mache bomb, but since I am sans-Alfred for now, those will have to wait until next time! 

I love this costume because capes are fun and it makes me feel like Julie Newmar–while still getting to be a good guy.

I had a blast at Emerald City Comic Con this year! I saw so many friends who live far away, attended the last ever West Coast Fables panel (sad!) and introduced my partner to his very first ECCC. I've got tons more photos and bought so many things [haul post here]– including pre-ordering the Batman '66 BOOK.

My feet and crime-fighting muscles are sore, but I can't wait for even more excitement in San Diego this year.

More photos after the jump!

ECCC Haul 2014

Bee and the Puppycat sweater (WeLoveFine) and Star Trek 45.

Time for a haul! Not cosplay, of course, but I'll be moving all con and fandom related posts to this blog from my main blog. Any original (and fandom-related) art will still live over here.

Machine of Death patch, reading, and sticker; Miyazaki Club button;
Satanic Babysitters Club book; illustrated cards.
It's so beautiful. And sounds RIDICULOUS.
Ah, Moauv.
