Helena – Orphan Black
Cons: CONvergence 2014, Wizard World Chicago 2014
Orphan Black has quickly become one of my all-time favorite shows. And if you’re not watching it, then you need to get on that immediately! Duh!
It is my goal to one day cosplay all the clones and photoshop myself into a picture, purely for hilarity sake. Next on my list is Cosima since I have her glasses now and I really want to make that wig. But Helena was an easy first choice since I’m already blond and I more or less owned her outfit already. I generally like being pretty with very nice makeup for cosplay, so looking so cracked out is a weird change, haha. Only problem is that my hair really did not want to cooperate either times that I wore Helena. Thanks to the Chicago humidity, all of the poofyness and curls almost instantly fell out, leaving it a sad, limpy mess. But oh well.
I still got some great pictures with Kelsey as Sarah Manning and Karen as Alison Hendrix. Yay clone club! Kelsey and I twice realized we were re-creating scenes from the show. First in the car on the way to the con, so of course I had to sing “Sugar, Sugar” in a bad Ukranian accent and then again when we got some lunch at the diner. Unfortunately, there was no Jell-O.
Enjoy the photos!
