So I’m supposed to go to the Motor City Comic-Con this year. I bet that’s not something you ever expected me to admit.
But, yes. I am a comic book dork. I prefer Marvel to DC. I have favorites. I have been attempting to attend Comic-Con in CA for years, but haven’t ever been able to go. But this year, I’m going to the one in Michigan (w00t!) and I’ve picked out my costume.
Now I just have to see how difficult it will be to make and I have to decide how I will make sure to not be SUPER revealing (hi mom!!).
I’m going as Lelu from The Fifth Element. Now, I pretty much have two options for costumes. The white strappy thing she wears in the beginning. I could make that really easily, and add some nude/sheer panels so it’s not revealing (I found a girl on Flickr who did that, and it looked good. She hid the sheer panels in the white areas so her chest and bottom half were covered). Or, I can wear the crop-top, gold leggings/orange suspenders outfit. That one might be much harder to make because of the suspenders.
