Another teaser, this time for Black Widow. This is really more of a Halloween and Breakfast Club costume than a cosplay. I didn't make it, but I honestly couldn't have done a better job- it's actually pretty accurate. It arrived the Friday of RamenCon before I left, and I was just too excited to try it on. XD In case you don't know what Breakfast Club is, it's a college tradition where people wake up early to go the bars and drink before a big game, usually during football season and Grand Prix.
Personally, I don't care for drinking at all, I just wanted something cool to wear that I don't mind putting at risk- you can't expect drunk people to respect your personal space, even if they would while sober. I also wanted it to be something bad ass that people would still recognize. For anyone that has never dealt with drunk/party/college people, last time I went out to BC it was raining, and while I was driving, this car on the other side of the road sped through a huge muddy puddle, splashing both my car and a group walking on the sidewalk. Not just a little bit, like a tidal wave coming over the top of my just-washed car.
The group walking was happy about it, but if that had been me in a Sailor Mars costume that I'd made, I'd be running after that car with rocks. XD Anyways, that's pretty much why I wanted a bought costume for this, and it probably won't make it to too many cons unless I decide to do a group with some friends. Black Widow is also just sexy as hell in the Avengers movie, which I admit was my first immersion with Marvel ever. I vehemently adore her bad assery and wish I were limber and could do flips and kick ass. XD I've seen the iconic comic characters for years but had never seen any of the movies or read any comics. I just might have to now. I've already seen a few other Marvel movies since the Avengers, and actually would like to *make* Black Widow's suit from Iron Man 2.
