Also now nursing low-key obsessions with Cyberpunk 2077 and the red Jedha pilgrims from Rogue One.
Thinking about making a plague doctor costume for the Renaissance Fair next February. Mainly because I saw a couple in the “Solomon Kane” movie. And the music video for Ghost’s ‘Dance Macabre’ briefly shows a few.
Because I’m incapable of leaving well enough alone, and constantly seeking some entertaining diversion, I’ve got a bunch of costumes on my mind at any one time.
Right now, besides my Kaneda / Akira jacket, I’m really obsessing over making an original spacesuit design – a sort of blue collar asteroid miner, or something along those lines. A retro vibe, like Apollo meets Alien. Lots of brown in the color scheme.
Aside from that, here are the rest of the random costume ideas bouncing around in my head:
• The King in Yellow
• An Apollo 11 NASA technician
• A customized jacket made from a cut-up military flight suit
• My long-running, often neglected Kane from Alien costume
• An original fantasy costume, with a North African vibe
Actually buying bits & pieces for my Apollo 11 era NASA technician costume.
Just got in the mail a plush facehugger for my Alien / Nostromo crewman / Kane costume.
Also looking at putting together an Andy Warhol and a Lumbergh from Office Space.
The Apollo missions, Apollo 11 in particular.
You know this year is the 50th anniversary, right? Lots of excitement. I’m in the early stages of putting together a costume. There’s a con I’ll be at on July 20th, and I think that’ll be just ideal.

Any Cosplay Advice or Ideas?
For women is helpful…but ideas that are male characters are fine too.
