My Carrie Kelley cosplay for Dragon*Con 2013!
This was easily my favorite costume of the whole weekend. Having made it myself, I felt so proud, and although it is so far from perfect and even incomplete, I felt confident in my handiwork. (: Lots of sleepless nights and near breakdowns in the week leading up to the convention happened in order to get this costume ready. I was so close to quitting, but I can't even express how happy I am that I didn't.
Also, I had the MOST fun personifying Carrie for the day. I idolize her more than any female in the Batverse (and there are a lot of kick ass ladies around Gotham). I love that she is essentially the self-made Robin, and she earned Batman's favor. I felt so spunky in her costume, like I could conquer the world -- or at least some Mutants. c;
