I’m somehow playing catch-up again, still archiving costumes from SDCC 2009. But better later than never! This costume/project was as much fun as it was work – heaps of both. Considering I had already figured out the mechanics of crafting a Witchblade gauntlet from my prior two costumes, the execution itself wasn’t overly strenuous. It was the organization that got a tad overwhelming.
As a fan of Top Cow comics I tend to check out anything they publish. After hearing repeatedly about the Paul Dini books based off his Dinicartoon line, I decided to pick up Jingle Belle. My good friend Becky had already expressed interest in cosplaying as the main character, and once I read it I was psyched to find out that Jingle had a best friend who happened to be brunette!
