For all you Jokers out there, I found a treasure for you. A couple weeks ago in our Diamond delivery was the replica Joker cane and for a mere $250 it can be yours. And don't forget your Joker socks are available at Sock Dreams - look for their "Midnight Mosaic" design.
NYCC is just around the corner (are you sick me saying that yet?) and I'm so anxious that I haven't been sleeping. One Tylenol PM was just not enough to get the costume excitement out of my head. My husband is concerned over my increased addiction to coffee but as I say, it could be worse and I've been hooked on worse so coffee it is!
I'm experimenting with different materials to create the mask for Firestar. I've been posting my experimentation process at the League of Heroes tutorial forum. Once again, I'll reiterate that this is the best place for costuming advice even if you're not into the Superhero genre; got Sci Fi costume questions - doesn't matter, post them and people will help. There are experts on Predator and Halo costumes there as well. Now getting back to Firestar, I have the wig now too and it's gorgeous! The last several wigs that I've purchased have been New Look brand and it's the best I've had so far. The best prices have been with Cosworx.com. The boots (Pleaser go-go boots) and firey cuffs have been ordered as well but have not arrived. I'll be shopping for the spandex this weekend during my first NYC "rag district" shopping trip. Hopefully the stores will be open as I've heard that Saturday many of them close for Jewish Sabbath; and it's "black friday" weekend which may be insane.
