Ah, The Last of Robin Hood is finally coming to the big screen. It was quite different than the usual modern-day projects I’ve been an extra on, as it was a period piece. It was nifty getting to walk around in truly vintage garments and jewels. Can you spot me in the top screencapture? :)

You can see the trailer for the film here —->http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/independent/thelastofrobinhood/

Final photos of my Catching Fire inspired dress from last year. It was quite a fun project! You can read more about the making of the dress here —-> https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.639441556108450.1073741842.431005676952040&type=3

Sometimes it’s fun to step back and let someone else have the spotlight. Last year, I met a fellow extra who was undeniably the 11th Doctor, from his fluffy bangs to his silly walk even down to the fact that he walked in wearing suspenders, a bow tie, skinny black pants, and boots (and had NEVER seen Doctor Who!). Needless to say, a marathon TV session was had shortly thereafter.

It didn’t take much convincing to bring him to Dragoncon. He was a hit! So often we cosplayers/costumers was to take the spotlight for various reasons, but sometimes it’s just as fun to be someone’s sidekick and let them have the glory. Many fun memories happened that day and I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

This costume was literally just stuff I threw together from my closet (and all from Goodwill!). Though the choker I’m wearing has a teeny tiny bowtie on it that my friend Nick made. Though I think if I do a femme 11 again, I’m going to switch out the skirt as I don’t feel it quite fits the Doctor (not to mention I didn’t realize that it was so short! Oops…).

Sometimes I get to model with props I’m actually familiar with. Although I’m holding a foil, I will always be an epeeist!

I wore my black wig from the 1920s Gatsby party to work with a matching black tee and thought, ‘wait a minute, this looks like…” Can anyone guess? ;)
