I started work on a new cosplay! My family (and some friends too!) are doing a massive super cool, super secret cosplay for Dragon Con 2015 later this year. We have a small local con at the beginning of February called Swampcon and I decided to try and get my portion of the group cosplay finished in time for the costume contest at the convention. I just finished one of the most important parts today...the shoes!! You might remember these shoes from a thrift store hall a while back. I decided to spruce them up with some red and gold paint (to make it look like the iron suit!). The buttons were perfect for making little tiny arc reactors. I can't wait to rock these out in public even without the rest of my cosplay. Who wouldn't want their very own Iron Man shoes?
