This post is coming a little late, but I tell you I am just swamped trying to get ready for Dragoncon this year!
So a while back my my friend Brandon mentioned that Adult Swim might be doing a web short about cosplay. He asked if I would be interested in dressing up and talking a little bit about my Monarch costume. I told him I thought it would be a hoot, and that I thought Sarah and Riki would be interested as well. Sarah (Rusty Venture) and Riki (Dr. Mrs. the Monarch) were the girls in the group we did for Dragoncon. Turns out everyone thought it would be fun, so the plan was to shoot a week or two before the trip to Costa Rica. In the end Sarah got stuck working, and we couldn't move the date around because of the trip. It wasn't the same without her, but I remembered Katie had done a Dr. Girlfriend costume and we were able to rope her into the sillyness at the last moment.
We went over to Williams street and got into costume while being filmed. As expected we acted like fools and had a great time. So for your viewing pleasure I present "Professioanl Dress-Up :
I know I haven't had a chance to put up a page in my costume section about how I made the Monarch and the Dr. Mrs. the Monarch magical body suit base. Riki discribes my process a bit in the video, but I'll have something more detailed up sometime after Dragoncon. Enjoy!
