Dragon*Con is only 30 days away and costume creation is a major topic around our house right now.
DH is working his ability to grow facial hair into both of his new costume ideas. First, he plans to be The War Doctor, John Hurt's character from the 50th anniversary of Dr. Who special.
The costume is still a work in progress, but it's coming along nicely.
Then the goatee will be shaved off, so he can be Nikola Tesla the following day.
There are no pictures, yet, of what the Tesla costume will look like. I still need to see if I can get his hair to behave like that.
The Tesla costume was inspired by a new costume that I'm working on, Victorian schoolmarm, Miss Frizzle, the steampunk version of The Magic School Bus' Ms. Frizzle, which also takes advantage of my natural hair type. My dress is going to reflect the latest subject that Miss Frizzles class is studying, alternating current electricity.
Victorian era Miss Frizzle will be taking her class aboard the Magic School Train (Blaze let me paint a toy train he had).
The fabric I ordered for my dress has not arrived, but the Beanie Baby of Liz, Ms. Frizzle's lizard should be in today's mail.
