Awesome Con 2018 Friday Shoots

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!

I started out the day by taking a few photos with Mike. Gave us both a chance to warm up before shooting with others later.

I made my earrings (by combining pieces of two different pairs of costume jewelry earrings) and necklace. The pin on my hat is vintage.

I used a fake costume cigarette and cigarette holder as a prop.

And of course I had to bring a cat!

For whatever reason, Mike often insists on trying to take photos of me while we’re both on an escalator. They usually come out like this.

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.

Believe it or not, we were working on a bench in a busy hallway of the convention center!

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.
