NYCC Day 2 - Firestar is ready



I'm all ready for today. I got about 45-55 minutes of sleep even though we home at a very reasonable 8:30 pm. I'm just too nervous about the potential people that I want to meet and interview.

Yesterday, I was happy to discover the theatrical contact lenses booth. I never wanted to order online because I had questions, not to mention the con prices are much better. I'm so glad I stopped by there and splurged on a treat for today's Firestar costume. I have fire contacts in. Sure, might not be comic book accurate but they look cool.

Because of the mask being the way, I actually have to use a strip of toupee tape under the front of the wig to keep it in place. I think more people will recognize me today and not confuse me for a manga or goth character. Although, now that I think about it, I guess since Rumor was created and designed by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, I guess she is rather goth.

See you there! Oh and it's supposed to be in the 40s today! Funny to think that's good news.

Holy Cow, Jill! That's a great piece - and the article's not bad either *rimshot*

Thank you for including me!

PS I learned that the "Tron" dude is X-man Cyclops where certain X-players use a reflective piping on their suits specifically because of how cool it looks in photos.

Keep up the spectacular work!

:D Thanks! I'm glad you like. (Btw I didn't put the captions on the photos)

There's a bunch of shots on you on flickr too! I was searching tags of NYCC and they came up.

Very nice! I used to love Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends on Saturday mornings.
