Well, I guess now could be as opportune a time as any for me to share some of my own BTVS/Angel-verse cosplay pic-age....so far I costume as Drusilla, Fred and Illyria (with Vamp Willow anticipated this year) but so far I've only had the opportunity to really trot out and about to greatest effect with my Illyria (SDCC, Hollywood and the like, though I'm greatly looking forward to doing it at other cons now too....hey, just name the date and place and I'm there, definitely! :) ) - which so far is my real pride-and-joy costume kit, and wonderfully empowering as well, too, I must say. :D
And thus far I haven't yet finagled the opportunity to do any formal cosplay photoshoots, a la the sort o' thing you've all shown off thus far and of which I am, to be sure, rather envious....I've done formal photoshoots like that for my SW costuming, but clearly Buffy and the Angel-verse simply have to be next and I'm just hopeful that I'll yet have that opportunity, too, soon enough....hmmmm, perhaps it could yet behoove a bunch of us to make plans to meet up at a forthcoming big convention, and then have just all sort of gleeful fandomy costumed-up fun in the process? Aaahhhh, come on, you know you wanna. :D Heck, *I* certainly desperately want to!
Still, though, all that being said, I do have some picage to share of me all kitted up Illyria-wise; I did an "Angel" skit at the Anime LA 2010 masquerade (of which I know there's at least one video clip, if there's perchance any interest in seeing it? :) ) and so in some of these pics, well....no denying that Illyria does indeed hurl a certain blondie bear vampire to the ground and then sets about standing on his chest, but clearly that simply *had* to be done (yeah, just for the skit, I'm sure....LOL!) - and indeed, yeah, that in itself was of course every bit fun and greatly satisfying for me. Now, to see about re-enacting that mighty fine sword-and-punch-fight from "Shells", for example....anyone? Anyone? (Spike, Angel?) I know you're out there and doubtlessly tempted as much as I surely am.... :) *laughs brightly*( I'd like to keep Spike as my petCollapse )
