Mr. Pants and I have been trying to figure out the room for DragonCon situation. And once you start talking about rooms, you kinda automatically start thinking about the costumes. Especially if you're me.

With Alex and Aboe not having come the last few years, it's been hard getting really excited about costumes. It's a fact: they're way more fun with others. That Jerod got into it last year was helpful, and making Jamie's costume, even tho we only saw her for about 30 minutes all con, and she was asleep for about 25 of them. But it's having a big group of people who are all totally committed to dressing up like crazy people and going out in public that really makes con for me.

I'm moderately more excited about this year, so far. The possibility of at least one, maybe two groups to costume for is kinda nice, especially since I'm pretty sure no one has done one of those costumes before (even if I am gonna have to make it myself, and the prospect of making that thing kinda terrifies me). I keep coming up with other ideas but never really settling on anything.

I know it's early to really think about Con, but it's just kinda been missing some magic lately. Hopefully, it'll pick back up.

OMG DCON. I am so excited for this year. (Please do still count me in on the room if that is possible. I can pay a deposit to you immediately.)

I have a friend coming this year who is the most amazing crazy fun person I have ever met (he and his brother are the ones who got us on the roof this past year), and costuming madness is totally going to happen — we should get more people for Scott Pilgrim, if we can — and overall I just think it is going to be wonderful.

We are about 225 day sout and that seemsz to be when I get costume excited!
So it must be more of us that get the excitement just after the holidays. ;)
I will start working on them by March, but now is prep and dream time,
And I so agree that the group costume madness makes it so much more fun!

I've been trying to get Jamie to read Scott Pilgrim forever now. I don't know who she could be but she ought to be someone. Jerod needs a new Zero shirt, too - my old one is about worn out.

You should figure out a costume for the JLI group. Although I don't know who. Unless you can make yourself look Japanese...

Would it be weird for Jamie to do Roxy Richter? Probably, huh? She could do Knives, I guess. But she should definitely be someone.

You really have to send me a list of who is or was in the JLI. I don't think I could pull off Power Girl — yellow is really not my color. Actually, I'd love to find someone in the JLI with red hair, so I wouldn't have to do a wig.

According to DC Wiki, Maxima was a member, and Sharon Parker Hawkwoman (who is so awesome she doesn't even have a gallery), aaaaaaand...that appears to be it.

Ok yeah I don't know what to tell you. Let's stick to Scott Pilgrim and Avengers.

Yeahhhhhh. Although... I am having a hard time finding any redhaired anyone that I want to be. Blerg.

Fuck it, I might just have to do Wasp.
