Just thought I would get on here for a second to talk about why I’m so proud to be a part of this group. These are the Lightning Bolts, our answer to Iron Man’s Ironettes and Captain America’s USO girls.
Not only did we design and produce identical costumes at the last minute before DragonCon to help Tally’s dream of doing this come true, we also took a stand for the ladies.
On two seperate occasions that night members of our group were sexually harrassed. Both times the Lightning Bolts took matters into their own hands and made it known that not only was it not acceptable, but it wasn’t going to just slide by. The first guy was removed from the con, the second who actually physically assaulted the girl was arrested. In both cases the girls stood their ground and in one case chased him across the hotel in 4 1/2” platform wedges so that he wouldnt escape authorities.
So basically you shouldnt sexually harass a group of girls who fangirl over the god of thunder.
Tony has his Ironettes, Cap has his USO girls… And Thor has us Lightning Bolts.

The Avengers at DragonCon 2013

Tonight I’ll go through and post a lot of my photos from DragonCon, but I just had to put this one up first. It’s probably my new favorite thing ever. I feel like a proud mama bear with this group of truly remarkable people. Most of us are actually really close friends and spent the entirety of the con hanging out and partying together and never once did anyone’s actions seemed out of character. These people just ARE their character which is magical. More than that, they’re the greatest friends a girl can know and I’m honored to get to see them every con.
Test for my new Natasha Romanoff wig.
My Jane Foster Armor is now complete!!! These were all made by the talented SoloRoboto Industries. I can’t wait to see it all together with my dress!
Really crappy quality photos, but the dress part for my Jane Foster costume is all done!!! I’m just waiting on my armor which is being made for me and then it’s ready to go! And trust me, the chest part will look nicer with the armor on.
Sorry for the really poor quality, but I got the skirts and one of the sashes all pinned in place for my Jane Foster dress from Thor 2. I’m not entirely happy with how my dye job came out. It’s too light I think and the bottom most skirt doesn’t show up as darker as the rest like it’s supposed to. Well, it does in this photo, but I think that’s just the lighting. Maybe I’ll be surprised when it’s all finished though. Also, you can’t really see the little sash, but it’s there on the right side.
What also bothers me as that the print is too subtle and not showing up. That could just be the poor quality of my web cam, though.
Black Widow (comics) | SDCC 2013
This is my new Comics style Black Widow. I made this body suit, Dragonfyre Designs did the belt and Matt Munson did the bites.
While I like the PVC look, I think I like this one better. You can’t tell so well in these photos, but in the right light, it has a blue sheen to it which reminds me of the comics. I think I just need to take the arms in a bit.
If my messy hair wasn’t an indication, I did a whole little martial arts form on the Marvel stage and I really wish there was video…
Jane Foster (Thor 2) | SDCC 2013
I finally got some good photos of the armored dress I had been worked on for Jane Foster. I hand dyed the fabric and made the dress and SoloRoboto Industries made the armor.
I had actually run out of fabric so the skirt is much more slimmer than I wanted. I already ordered more to completely re-make the bottom portion for DragonCon.
I'd like to give you an alternate starting place for Doctor Who. Series 5 - The Eleventh Hour. The Ninth Doctor is great I'd recommend any Doctor but "Rose" is fairly poor episode while the first episode with the eleventh doctor is fantastic. Start at whatever point you want I just don't want you to be put off by that episode haha.
Lol, thanks. I don’t see this happening in the near future, though. I have too many TV shows as it is and I’m about to pick up a new one!
