On Friday of Awesome Con, I wore my DC Bombshells Catwoman cosplay for the first time. To be honest, I hadn’t originally planned on finishing this costume for Awesome Con. I had started it on a whim when I had a quiet weekend earlier in the winter, and I had no firm plans or expectations. But then Jamey said she was trying to finish a DC Bombshells Black Canary for Awesome Con, so I decided to make a push as well. I was on a busy project at work at that time, so I cut my sewing close. I was putting the final stitches in my gloves on Friday morning. However, it all worked out in the end!
Later that afternoon I had a chance to shoot with Justin of Rich and Strange Photography. I really love the dramatic lighting he got for these photos.
Then we met up with Jamey for some photos with her. She did an excellent job on her Black Canary!
Immediately after that, we met up with Dan to shoot with him. I love how the colors really pop in these.
Dan was also nice enough to let Mike borrow his Nikon Speedlight for a couple shots. Mike and I are still learning about lighting, so it was really helpful to experiment and get some great advice from Dan.
Overall, I was very pleased with my first wearing of this cosplay!
