Went to PAX East in Boston for the third time. This is a convention centered around gaming in all its forms (video games, board games, card games, role-playing games…). As I’ve already posted, I helped Mike make a costume based on Robin from the game Arkham City. I didn’t have time to sew something for myself as well, so I cobbled together a gothic lolita Princess Peach (from Super Mario Bros) using a shirt and skirt bought from Fan+Friend. I wore these over my 18th C bum roll to give a bustled effect, but then also wore a short crinoline petticoat to poof things out all around. Then I made a crown out of gold scrapbooking paper, pinned this to a little bowler hat, and added burgundy ribbon to a cheap nylon parasol to accessorize. I wore the boots I normally wear with my day bustle outfits, plus black leggings. Overall the look worked out.
