Between having a life/job, working on a fun but time consuming commission, and my tendency to spend far to much time on the internet (curse you fandom part of pintrest), Comic Con has snuck up on me and I am not feeling prepared!
Back at the Comic and Toy Expo in September my mom and I brainstormed a whole list of ideas I was interested in pursuing. And now Comic Con is in four days, and I can finally check a few of these off.
So this year I’ll be presenting a few more geeky items than I had last year.
Presenting, the Owl Avengers:Iron Man, Hawkeye, Captain America. Thor (complete with cape), Hulk, Black Widow.
I’d been thinking of doing these on and off since last year when I made an Iron Man owl, but I didn’t have the rings. I finally bought the sizes I need, and built them all. Some turned out better than others – particularly Iron Man and The Hulk, but I also do like Captain America.
My seven-year-old cousin keeps playing with them and is clamoring for me to make an Ultron. If I ever get the time…I’ve also toyed with the idea of making Loki, but I just don’t think I could pull off the horned helmet and all that.
I’ve also got back to an idea I played with years ago: These are both painful and fun to make. The rings are tiny and annoying to work with, but the end result is so good it’s mostly worth the bother.I’ll have at least three of these at Comic Con, maybe more depending on how much I can get done, but with the way my current ‘to build’ list looks, that might be a bit of a stretch.
Anyways, all this to say come to Comic Con!
October 30 2-9pm
October 31 9am-7pm November 1 10am-5pm
RBC Convention Center, 375 York, Winnipeg
I’ll be in Artist Alley, in the aisle closest to the hallway. I’m pumped for the costumes, talking to Con-goers and Vendors, and seeing all the amazing geekery that shows up at these things. Hope to see you there!
