I am: #thatdjspider - DJ, cosplayer, costumer, geek, social media junkie, foodie, crafty type, and goofball. Kind of a wacky version of Suzie Homemaker and Martha Stewart, if she came wrapped in spandex and spiderwebs. Occasionally NSFW.

I have no idea what the Food-Giver is saying, do you? Look cute and fuzzy, just in case there are treats…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday

Since my feed is filled with Asgard, here’s my Enchantress from 2006, a costume I really need to remake at some point, as it’s sadly been damaged in storage. The last time she came out was when I helped to MC the costume contest at the Atlanta Comics Expo in 2008. Bonus pic of me hoisting the silly thing up since the corset wasn’t laced as tightly as it could have been - being evil sometimes has it’s moments!

Cape and boots now completed for Thursday night silliness at #DragonCon!
Comfy costumes for running around in are one of my favorite things about Thursday’s at DragonCon…though I expect this one will show up at least once more that weekend!

#TipTuesday Staying Cool [note: I am not being paid to endorse this particular product, I just wanted to share it as an example] If you plan on doing a costume that involves a lot of you being covered up, remember to stay cool by drinking lots of water, and look at ways to ventilate your hood or helmet so the heat can escape. The The 501st Legion are masters at this (little computer fans inside stormtrooper helmets? Genius!) but another product I like is something devloped for hikers - a bandana with an icepack inside. I used one like this under my Sensor Girl suit, though I ended up making a sleeve to match the costume, and just picked up some replacement ice-packs online. I kept them in the ice cooler in our room at DragonCon and they stayed nice and cool while I was suiting up. Heat stroke and dehydration can be very serious business when you’re a costumer, especially if you tend toward big builds like armor and helmets in the summer time. This is me being Safety Pup and reminding you to be aware of your body and know your limits while in costume.

Forgot to post my Mary Jane Watson cosplay from #HeroesCon 2014…found the pants accidentally and the rest just kind of fell together, so I wore it to DJ some Full Frontal Nerdity on Saturday morning :)
