When I first announced I’d be creating a cosplay costume for Wizard World Comic Con, I promised to keep you guys posted throughout the creative process. A lot of people have been asking how the costume’s been going, and if it seems like I’ve been a bit quiet on the subject, I haven’t forgotten. It’s just that the journalist in me has always worked best under pressure, and I really hadn’t done much more than plan until this past week.
