    felicisrook took some lovely photos of the Captain America and Iron Man shoes I made for myself last fall!  I love these shoes so much—so comfy!  I painted the heels with nail polish for extra gloss.  

    I haven’t made any decoupage shoes in a while but I still have one more pair I need to make: crazy punk Lobo heels.  It will happen.

    I have a pair of Fantastic Four wedges shnou made for me and they’re my favorite shoes in the world. <3 SO MUCH TALENT.

    (Power Girl, Huntress, Black Canary, GAIL SIMONE, Lady Blackhawk, Misfit, Black Alice)

    I was at NYCC, and had had long lines the entire time, it was very crowded, and I was in the signing zone. Hubby, #rocketspouse saw Misfit coming down the aisle through the crowd and said, “honey, look! It’s Misfit!”

    So I look, and I get a big smile. Then I see Huntress. Then Black Alice.

    By the time the whole team showed up, I cried a little. :)

    (i’m not crying you’re crying)

    Gail Simone, you were absolutely the highlight of a great day at the con, thank you SO much for taking the time to grab photos and a hug with us and for signing everything we brought and for just basically being incredibly lovely.

    I went and did a silly shoot in the woods yesterday with my friends in our Dragon’s Dogma costumes.  I really enjoy wearing Madeleine, as it’s one of the few costumes I have where I can look and act like a total goofball.

    Question for my fellow Captain Marvel cosplayers.

    What red gloves did you buy and do you like them? 

    There are a million and one options on Amazon and I’d like to not have to buy more than one pair. 

    Also, if anyone has tiny baby hands like myself and bought kid gloves, let me know how that worked out. I’m considering it since most gloves at stores run too long in the fingers for me.

    I bought some cheap satin costume gloves at a halloween store (something very similar to this http://www.amazon.com/Costume-Gloves-Halloween-Accessories-STC12079/dp/B0042NCV8) and trimmed them so that they only went up to the middle of my forearm/sewed gold buttons onto them. They’re…okay? Four cons in they’re starting to wear thin and I’ve got a hole in one of them, but they stood up to having the buttons sewn onto them pretty well!

    I haven’t cosplayed Captain Marvel (yet), but as someone with small hands who often has problems finding gloves that fit well, I’d search for spandex gloves over satin ones. I’ve bought two pairs for different costumes and they fit MUCH better. I think last time I googled something like “spandex elbow length bridesmaids gloves” and found a bunch of colors.
