Ok, So I have FINALLY reached a decision about who I want to cosplay at the MCM expo in May 2014. I'm going to be........
I have an old Darth Vader helmet and a closet full of lightsabers that I need an excuse to use. I think a cosplay fits the bill just nicely. I don't necessarily have the proper suit for it, but I have enough to get the general idea. It shall be EPIC!
However, I have come to conclusion that no weapon is the safest option, so if you decide to cosplay either use a costume that has no weapon props or make sure you have enough time to make/buy one when you get into the country (this obviously would take some research!) that you could leave behind after the con.
Kurtis Trent/Chase Cavier:
Either of these would probably be a more travel friendly costume, but it is up to you x)
I've been thinking about this topic for a while. I think it would be safer and easier for me to not bring a prop weapon to the expo. In this regard, Kurtis Trent/Chase Cavier would be MUCH easier to pull off, as they are a bit more travel friendly. as cool as Darth Vader is, I think he might have a few more problems with the TSA and customs, both in the US and in UK.
I think I have FINALLY have my heart set on who I want to be..... TONY STARK! Mostly because I have the same hairstyle and goatee as him. I think I also might be able to find his shirt with the arc reactor as well. It'll work out better than my previous cosplay ideas, as I wont need any weapon props to get across who I am.
Well, I think that wraps everything up for now. I'll probably post pictures as the expo draws near and as I slowly get bits and pieces of my cosplay together.
It's been a few months sine I last posted an update. Mostly because I didn't have anything to post about. Anyway, here's probably the best picture I took from MCM London Comic con. Here is Tony Stark (me) with his armored counterpart.
