BEHOLD THE SEXINESS!!
Next Jordan took a turn climbing that big tree to get this shot:
Now, after the shoot I realized I didn't like certain aspects of my costume, so I changed some things like the hat, skirt, hair, and accessories. Because of that, you'll have to wait for me to upload my final version photos to see more of the details. (Sorry!)
I'd also like to point out that it's really hard to post personal costume pictures without posting pictures of yourself wearing the costume - a serious drawback. Next time I'll just have to make a steampunk gas mask to hide behind. You know, to maintain my air of mystique. [eyebrow waggle]
And to make up for the lack of more costume pics, here it is at last: my pride and joy, my one and only, my finished ray gun:
I love this thing SO MUCH. And since John did most of the hard stuff, following my drawings and directions, I told him it's my anniversary present. Thirteen years is traditionally sci-fi weaponry, right?
Oh, and I'll be sure to include a video of her in action when I post the tutorial, so you can see the light effect. I think you're gonna liiiiike it! [sing-song]
Hope these pics help tide you over 'til I get more of my Dragon*Con photo haul sorted and uploaded. And 'til I can process enough of the crazy wonderful things that happened to me to relate them properly.
'Til then, my friends!
