Iron Man 2!!

Non-spoilery review in a very small nutshell: SEE IT!

Much fun was had by all, i.e. aj, celli, slodwick, and two friends of theirs who are very cool but whose names I have not retained because I suck.


Jury-rigged costume is lycra. Lycra + cold wind = BRRRR. Real one in progress for Dragon*Con will not have that problem.


Need to work on this pose before Dragon*Con.


Neon thingies outside make a cool backdrop.


Pepper and Natasha are patriotic! 'Cause, yeah.


Pepper/Natasha OTP! (Errr... you kinda had to be there. Let's just say there was at least one person in the group who won't say no to that fic.) This was not planned to look like a romance novel cover, but it kinda does, which amuses me greatly.

If anyone was staring at me like "WTF is that crazy person doing in that getup?" I didn't see it. Which was kind of surprising, since we didn't do the midnight show or anything. But it was fun. Also, there was a guy in the row behind us wearing the toy arc reactor on his shirt. :-D

AWESOME. I texted with aj last night about the movie, and she told me what you two were up to. I replied "Pics or it didn't happen!" And thus, here I am. :D You two crack me up.

The first photo is the best, for artistic impression and verisimilitude, I think, even though it misses much of your costume. Good work all around!

I'm glad you had fun, and I'm glad to hear the movie is worth seeing; it has much to live up to in its predecessor, and much to set up in the eventual Avengers movie. I'm looking forward to it -- but not this particular weekend, I suspect.

Thanks! I'm pleased with it, for a quick'n'dirty. :-)

The movie is great fun. A lot of reviews are saying they tried to cram too many elements into it, but it doesn't really end up feeling that way.

Thursday... afternoon? And we're at the Hilton. (I think.)

brainiacfive is sitting next to me saying "Where's she staying, and will she costume? Need more Legionnaires!"

You would also be an awesome Annie. We have no boys, but I shall be doing Daisy at some point...

I do costume at D*Con, but mainly Middle Earth & Pirate. My costuming is going to be more limited this year since I'll be flying directly into ATL from Vancouver, so there really will be a luggage issue.

Annie? I immediately picture a brillo-y orange-haired child with ping-pong ball eyes.....

*giggle* This Annie. Though the perkiness level can be comparable.

Oh, that would be awesome! There's a guy on the LoH board with the suitcase armor in progress. We should definitely all get together for photos!
