My daughter cosplaying as Wasp from the Avengers. The man she is standing with is Christopher Yost. For those familiar with The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes…this is the head writer for the show. At the Rose City Comic Con, he called Aria over to his table and asked if I would take a photo of the two of them together on his phone. He told Aria that he wrote the show and that Wasp was his favorite…before Hulk, Iron Man, or even Thor. Aria stood wide-eyed, half-smiling at him. The next morning she asked to watch the cartoon and said, “Momma, I want to write to Christopher Yost. I want to send him a letter. He said that Wasp was his FAVORITE.” She was all smiles. This is what it is all about. Two minutes, a little attention, and the head writer for a popular Avengers cartoon made my girl feel like she was a million bucks.
My 7 year old daughter, Sakura, wanted to go to the convention as Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: the clone wars. We’ve put a lot of work into her costume.
Everything was custom build. Her backpack with Rotta in it was made with a simple carboard box and Fimo for the creature. Her lightsaber was made from wood and plastic and lots of paint. The headgear took longest to build. It was created using a wireframe covered in the lightest Fimo you could find. The costume was done by mommy and grandma. Make-up was applied later on.
Special effects added for dramatic effect, of course. :-)
Boston Comic Con was forced to postpone last week because of the lockdown in Boston. But I’m very glad to see that on their website they have a new date of August 3 and 4th at the World Seaport Center. Many of the guests who were scheduled to appear including George Perez and Tony Daniel will be there along with some new names including Brian Azzarello and Cully Hamner. Also listed as attending is Dan Didio. That’s a lot of DC folks. Can’t wait!
