Hmm. What to do when your Molly costume actually looks really cute, as opposed to Frankenhookerish?
Here’s the full costume, with and without the jacket (it’s going to be HOT in San Diego!), and a close-up.
The wig is done! I initially planned to gel it into spikes, so it would look more street grungy and less like a punkish Veronica Lake, but I love the current look too much to risk screwing it up. Unfortunately, I screwed up the ratio of ink to rubbing alcohol in the dye for the blue, making it look kind of flat and gummy. I managed to fix the gumminess, but it’s still not as shiny and pretty as the pink side. In fact, it looks kind of radioactive. Ah well. :D
At the con, I’ll be wearing black nail polish as well, but I didn’t feel like putting it on just for these photographs.
(Dear god, I want to steal that jacket. I’m borrowing it from the awesometastic Rebecca, who found it at a thrift store for TEN BUCKS, whereas it usually retails for like $80. Envy! Thaaaaaank youuuuuu, Rebecca, for lending it to me!)
