This post might be just a wee bit late, but only about a month and a half!
I wanted to share all the fun costumes my nerdy little extended family came up with for Halloween. My little sister and I were Thor and Loki, our other sister went as Raven, her husband was Wolverine, and the two little girls were Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl.
We had a great time, despite having to adapt the costumes to the weather (gloomy and rainy). Now we are switching into full Comicon gear, prepping for three days of cosplay and fandom!

Last week the two of us went to the premier of the new Star Trek movie, which was amazing! We weren't sure how this would fit into our goal of cosplaying all the sweet nerd movies this year, but we still managed to make it memorable! The Star Trek skirt I posted about previously went perfectly with a blue shirt (because I am science, if course) and a felt communicator. Kate opted for red, a choice which I'm sure she regretted when she was being banned to a hazardous planet on a one-woman away mission.
We got some funny looks from people, but it was mostly individuals who came wielding light sabers, so I think they were a bit confused to begin with. Epic night!

A while ago Kate and I made ourselves some sweet skirts (alliteration intended). I know they're not related to our outfits, but they are still perfectly gorgeous in their nerdiness, so I wanted to share. Mine is a testament to my love of Star Trek. Enjoy!
We are not going to be doing cosplay, because that has been done. Instead, we will be wearing fashion-inspired outfits based on our favorite characters. Think, what Iron Man would wear if he were a girl and didn't feel like doing the whole armor thing that day.
I, of course, will be Iron Man for the premier of Iron Man 3 this May. My sister will be portreying the villain Doctor Doom. Yes, we know he is not in the film, but he is our favorite Iron Man villain, so he will be making an appearance anyway. In November I will be wearing an amazing Thor-inspired outfit and Kate will rock Loki, the role she was born to play. Yes, that's right, I just called my sister a Norse god of chaos. If you know her you would understand.
We could not be more excited for these events, and are thrilled to be able to share with you the bits and pieces we find as our outfits come together. Let's go!
