I still have a massive HeroesCon recap blog post in the works, but considering the comics news today, I wanted to share this amazing commission that Babs Tarr drew for me at HeroesCon ♡
Since Babs was so busy at the con all weekend, I just handed her my sketchbook on Saturday and asked for a commission of Jem, but only if she wasn’t too bombarded with work. When I stopped by her table on Sunday, she surprised me with an illustration of me as Batgirl/Batmangirl and I almost started tearing up on the spot. Thank you so much, Babs - I really can’t wait to see you work your magic on the new Batgirl series this fall.
P.S. Also, thank you, Jordan, for coloring me in ♡

I will also be wearing this outfit at some point during HeroesCon - be sure to say hi if you spot me!
I will update my blog about our awesome trip to HeroesCon, but for now, here’s a photo of our Sex Criminals cosplay on Sunday. This was a really fun and casual cosplay for us - I’m hoping to get a proper photoshoot sometime soon~
A cosplay featuring Alice, (age 8) as Margot Tenenbaum and introducing her sweet boyfriend, London as Richie Tenenbaum by Kelly Is Nice Photography.
Alice: “I wish London was my brother.”
Mom: “If he was your brother then he couldn’t be your boyfriend.”
Alice: “I’m adopted.”
Alice especially loved this cosplay. Mostly, because it meant that she got to spend time with London but also because she got to wear a fur coat and play with fake cigarettes. She liked the subtle humor of the movie and had a lot of fun getting into character. I wish we had some behind the scenes video of the two of them together. There was a lot of giggling going on. Oh, and that hand holding. I didn’t tell them to do that. They just did… and then I died.
