Another year, another time I don’t get to go to SDCC. Sigh. Someday damnit! Until my plans fell through I was trying to think what costume I might dress up in should I go. Then I decided that would be the worst idea ever, my reasoning best demonstrated by this picture. In short, people take this stuff SERIOUSLY. If you’ve been around my site at all the past few years, you’ve seen the lengths people go to craft accurate costumes for cons like these. And SDCC? It’s the biggest of all.
So while I might think it’d be cool to show up as a homemade Ezio for Assassin’s Creed (though how do I get all those blades on a plane?), I’d undoubtedly look like some douche in a bathrobe when pro cosplayer Ezio shows up in his authentic leather pauldrons made in Italy. I don’t want to end up on my own “cosplay fail” post, which I undoubtedly would.
Maybe next year…
