This was my first costume project, and I swear, I ate, slept, and bled these costumes for four straight days. …not to mention the planning for the weeks before that. Sure, there are things I wanted to update and change and repair, and I may look at parts now and cringe…but I was so proud of these.
They held up so well, I was shocked. It wasn’t until we were literally stepping off the stage after receiving our Best Group award at ACen that Mordecai’s leg light started to flicker, and my holster almost fell off entirely. Perfect. (:
- Our lights are glow sticks that have on/off switches, which was amazing. They’re supposed to be emergency things, but they were PERFECT for this.
- The guns are modified NERF guns. Anton spraypainted them a flat gray and I did all the detail work and coloring.
