SO [livejournal.com profile] laura_writes and I went to Ohayocon last weekend, and it's taken me this long to do a semi-decent write up of it, but OH WELL. Here goes~

Waiting for the elevator is a part of EVERY Ohayocon, and the worst time is always RIGHT when you get there and have to take all your stuff up to the room. Laura and I must've waited 15-20 minutes, but we were on the 18th floor, and there was just no way that we were gonna make it up all those stairs lugging all our crap. But about 10 minutes into the wait, some random guy came out of the stairwell and said to the waiting group as a whole "HELLO ~LADIES~!" And there was a pause as he left, then the girl standing beside us deadpanned, "...Aaaaand now the weekend has officially begun."

So here's the deal.

I've been on such a comic book kick lately, I decided that REALLY want to cosplay SOMEONE for one of them, and since I'm currently blonde, it's prettymuch either Emma Frost or Super Girl, or Wonder Girl I guess, since Black Canary, Layla Miller, and Boom Boom are sorta obscure and I hate Ms. Marvel's costume. I guess there's Enchantress too, but again, probably too obscure, plus her hair would be a PAIN. OH there's Power Girl too, but...I am not really a fan of the "swimsuit bottomed" costumes, and my hair's too long anyway. Though the LOL BOOBWINDOW would ALMOST be worth it. |D BUT ANYWAY that bitch Emma Frost is probably my favourite of these anyway SO. Having an excuse to be a bitch and wear silver/white lipstick FTW. :Db

And while "crossplay" works just fine for plenty of anime characters since a lot of the guys are pretty girly-looking anyway, it doesn't work so well in the DC/Marvel comicsverses, since almost ALL the dudes are Very Muscular Manly-Looking Men, which I could not and certainly do not want to pass for. :|

...But then I thought, oh hey, I could be girl!Robin (a la Stephanie Brown, not Carrie Kelly), though she's a little obscure too. So yeah, I'm not sure anymore, since Batman is my fave superhero aside from Deadpool and there'd be no midriff-baring required and I could quite possibly make it myself which = more awesome points (since it'd be accurate) & LOADS more fun. =\ ...But Emma Frost is WAY more badass...

WELL CLEARLY there is only one possible thing to do here--SEEK THE ADVICE OF MY FRIENDS. |D F-LIST (and other people) DON'T FAIL ME NOW.

...I guess a big part of what it comes down to is The Classic Question: Marvel or DC?
