A friend-of-a-friend recently pointed me towards an upcoming, local event; the city's hockey team is sponsoring a "Superheroes Day," and they're looking for people to show up in costume! I could care less about hockey, but they had me at "costumes." If I can get a few other friends to come along and join in the shenanigans, so much the better! But I haven't done a superhero costume since middle school when I went for Halloween as Sailor Neptune. So who should I be??
So far, I've had two separate friends suggest Wonder Woman (I'm flattered that they think I can pull this off) and another suggest Black Widow. I still have my red wig from my Melisandre cosplay that I could use for Black Widow, but the outfit itself wouldn't be particularly recognizable (being essentially a black body suit with utility belt). Wonder Woman could be fun, but I'm not sure that I could pull it off in the time I have. The event is on November 30th.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to which superheroes could be fun and how I could pull them off? What props would I need? What could I substitute for some of the more complicated pieces of the ensembles? And I am NOT above doing gender-swapped cosplay; if I thought I could put together a femme Loki before the 30th, I might just do it!
