It doesn’t matter if you’ve never dressed up. Everyone has a character they’d love to be, even just for a few hours at a fancy dress party. Here are ours:
Doctor Who (David Tennant or Matt Smith). Why? Because I’d look damn good in a bow tie or Tennant’s coat! They’ve both got a wonderful sense of style (the characters, that is), and Doctor Who is a wonderful show. What better reasons could there be?
I rest my case.
So I’m totally not sexy enough to pull the character off, but I think I would have to cosplay as Blink, from the Marvel Universe. Granted, the people at Marvel are total bastards and killed her off almost immediately after originally introducing her in the standard timeline, but she was seriously epic in the Age of Apocalypse timeline and was later reintroduced in the Exiles series… She’s a pink-skinned elfin-eared teleporter, a la Nightcrawler, who can charge bolts that she shoots at people. Oh, and I love her.
If you were to cosplay any skiffy or fanty character, who would it be and why?
