My Costume for Denver ComicCon!


Denver ComicCon starts June 15th!! EEEEKKKKK! It’s no surprise that I am totally stoked for this Con. Even going so far as to dress up for the occasion. šŸ˜‰ I am going for a steampunk doctor look. At GalaxyFest, the steampunk thing was HUGE! My costume really doesn’t have anything to do with my books but I thought it might be fun anyway. Besides, it would be pretty difficult to get a costume together for characters in my books since most are aliens šŸ˜€

For pics of the costume in its completion will have to wait until the actual Con but I thought I’d share some pictures of the props I’ll be using. Enjoy!

I got a couple of crystal growing kits and broke off pieces when they finished growing. Neat, huh??

I found these biohazard goggles and just HAD to have them šŸ˜€

I still have to hang some charms off the chain but I need hubbies help for that. I can’t pull the clasps apart!

The inside of my doctor’s kit

A suture gun I made from a hot glue gun and some old gears from a clock hubby found while we were camping šŸ™‚

I thought the gears gave my stethoscope a sort of steampunk feel…what do you think?

Field scientist kit I bought from a vendor at GalaxyFest. So COOL! I’ll wear this on my belt šŸ˜€

So what do you think of my props? Have you ever attended or dressed up for a scifi, fantasy, horror convention? I’d love to hear your stories!

Comment on this thread and I will choose ONE winner at random to win a e-book copy of my YA/time travel/coming of age novel, DANGEROUS REFLECTIONS! Winner will be chosen Monday, June 11th so make sure to get those comments in!
