Myself and my friend Heather ‘Cat’ Harris as Power Girl and Marvel Girl. I was so excited to see Heather at NYCC! Given that we live on opposite coasts, we don’t always get to run into one another. We wound up chatting for a couple of hours, it was great.
We each made our own costumes. Heather told me the (temporary) tattoo on her back took hours to apply by a Hollywood-level airbrush artist.
RedBubble’s New York Comic Con Design Challenge!
RedBubble, one of my favorite t-shirt sites, is holding a design contest for New York Comic Con in October! The winning design will feature an original comic-inspired superhero or villain created by the designer, and will be available on a limited edition exclusive RedBubble t-shirt at NYCC!
“Fancy having your own design featured at New York Comic Con? Of course you do, so you need to get your concentration hat on and read these words:
Your task is to create your very own, highly original, comic book character. Superhero or villain. Splendidly powerful, embarrassingly weak, or just quite good at chess. Give them skills you’ve always wanted or defects you’ve always dreaded. Give them a snappy name and stick them on a t-shirt.
What would your character wear? What’s their calling card, weaponry or gadgetry? What’s their story? What are they fighting for or against? It’s up to you to answer these questions.
We’ll then whip the winning design into a limited edition, official RedBubble/NYCC 2011 t-shirt to be featured, praised, discussed and given to hundreds of adoring comic fans in New York this October.”
Good luck, everyone - I can’t wait to see the entries for this contest!
