I'm a little excited. Ok. Maybe a lot. :D
A group of us are going (my Renaissance buddies!) to the premier tomorrow and we decided to do some cosplaying. (It is the premier after all!) It really took me a long time to decide on which costume to do. I debated Hawkeye first but thought his costume might be too complicate. (Same goes for Loki, though I really want to do that one. Thor 3, maybe?) Then I seriously thought about doing Nick Fury. I have the trench coat and everything for that one, and it'd be fun to wear the eye patch. But in the end, after a moment of inspiration, I decided to go with Agent Peggy Carter.
She's not actually in Age of Ultron. (I think. Perhaps she'll show up and I'll be surprised. You never know...) But oh well. Close enough. She's still been in a lot of Marvel stuff recently. So it works.
And the fact that her costume wouldn't really be that hard to put together. (Unlike Loki's...) Just a bit of thrift store shopping and voila!
Agent Carter has a lot of different great costumes. Even more with the addition of her own television series, which I really enjoyed. But in the end I decided I wanted to do something similar to this outfit.
Mixed with this outfit. (Basically I wanted the leather jacket from the first pic and the skirt and heels from the second.)
I ended up doing the rest of my shopping for it yesterday, and I just tried everything on together today. I'm really happy with how it turned out!! I think it really works, and people should be able to tell what I was going for. :D
For now here's a few pictures of what I have. (I was too lazy to get out my good camera so I just took some off my ipad, so quality... ya... lol)
|I definitely had to do the red lipstick thing. This one's called "British Red" I knew I had to buy it when I saw that. :D|
I also plan on attempting to pin curl my hair. Attempt is the word. We'll see how it goes... :D
Tomorrow we are planning to do a bit of a photo-shoot before we head to the theater. So hopefully we'll end up with some awesome pictures of le costumes!
CAUSE TOMORROW IS AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON!!!
Enjoy the movie folks!
