For Supanova this year, some friends talked me into cosplaying. The idea was to do gender-bent Avengers, but it didn't quite work out. Originally we were going to have a Thor, Lady Loki, Toni Stark and Bronwyn Banner (me!) however as the event grew closer our numbers dwindled. I had Toni for 3 hours on Sunday and did the rest of the day solo. Nobody asked for my picture. Oh well! I based my look off this promo image:
I had brown pants and a jacket already, and spent far too long hunting down the perfect purple shirt. It wasn't even 100% perfect, I ended up painting the (white) buttons with nail polish the night before.

This was a lot of fun to do, even though I think the effect would have been much better if I'd used a foundation brush or even a different kind of sponge - I did want a gradient towards the middle of my face but the whole side ended up being a bit patchy. It did last really well though, this is me at the end of the day:
My hands didn't turn out quite how I wanted, but I'll show you anyway.
There was a LOT of amazing cosplay at Supanova this year and fortunately between Tumblr, Fruitless Pursuits and Facebook, I get to re-live seeing my favourites and even see some that I didn't see in person over the weekend. It was crowded!
I'm not sure if I'm going to cosplay again, but slathering Kryolan on my face was definitely fun.
