The absolutely wonderful hugatreeortwo sent me the most lovely hand-made Black Widow zip pouch for my birthday! It’s such an incredibly kind and thoughtful gift, which shall most certainly see many years of treasured use for things which may or may not be weapon-shaped.
Thank you so very much ❤
BLACK WIDOW #8
NATHAN EDMONDSON (W) • PHIL NOTO (A/C)
• On a snowy night in Prague, Natasha must fight her way out of disaster alongside the WINTER SOLDIER!
• Meanwhile, Isaiah has business of his own in London, but a simple plan gets complicated.
• Nathan Edmonson and Phil Noto continue their uninterrupted run on one of the most acclaimed books of the year.
I will love this unconditionally as a baseline, but I’m going to be over the moon if this is hinting at finally addressing the two of them properly.
It is difficult to bear what happened here. You walked out of the Fade and our soldiers found you. The only one to have escaped a blast that killed thousands. And you have no idea how you survived?
At this moment, you are the only threat I see. (x)
Oh wow, thank you so very much! I honestly am floored every time someone takes the time to say anything, and it brightens my day immeasurably that anyone would hold such esteem for my costumes. Thank you!
The Stark Industries tablet is one that I made to wear with my closet cosplay of Pepper when Iron Man 3 came out. It’s made from a book light that I scratched into with an X-acto knife blade to create the design.
OH MAN YOU GUYS saroux WORE HER BLACK WIDOW COSPLAY TO THE MOVIE TONIGHT AND WHEN WE WERE LEAVING THE MOST PRECIOUS LITTLE GIRL ASKED FOR A PIC WITH HER
I MEAN SHE COULDNT’ HAVE BEEN MORE THAN EIGHT
SHE WAS SO HAPPY
She was adorable <3 Her dad was really awesome to encourage her to get a photo, she seemed so shy.
Making kids happy always gives me such a wonderful feeling of daily do-good!
ALSO Winter Soldier was amazing. I’ve basically cut myself off from the internet after getting to see an advance screening on Monday night and loving every damn minute. Last night was no different, and I anticipate MANY future viewings before it’s out of theaters!
Thank you so much! I rushed to get the costume done in time for Emerald City Comicon this past weekend; I had done sewing tests prior to the con, but sort of assembled the entire bodysuit in the wee hours of Friday night - Saturday morning before wearing it on Saturday *_* There’s plenty I’d love to fix and I re-used lots of bits from my Avengers Black Widow costume, but I’m calling it good for now!
The fabric I used is a combination of a 4-Way stretch spacer mesh and 4-Way stretch matte vinyl, both of which I bought from Spandexworld.com after ordering several different types of fabric swatches from them. The mesh doesn’t have nearly the same degree of stretch to it that many of the other stretch materials do (I’d say it’s about 30-40% as stretchy) but I really like it and am very pleased with how it turned out on the final suit:

This was such a wonderful evening. It felt like a gathering of friends whose names I just hadn’t learned yet, and I hope it becomes a regular event in the future.
I got to take some photos of my lovely friend saroux this weekend at Emerald City in her amazing Black Widow costume. :)
Oh wow, thank you so much! I’m marveling at your photography skills, madame, and sincerely hope we can do more together in the future.
Anyone else going to the Carol Corps Celebration solo?
I’m probably going to be taking a bus down from Cap Hill or Downtown (unless there are ride-shares being organized?).
I’ll be soloing it, and I also wanted to let people know that after the event is over, I’m volunteering…
I’m glad other people going it alone! I feel much less awkward.
I’d love a ride but since I live here - I can pass it up if out-of-town con-goers are looking for a way back to the city (if no one takes you up on it though ….).
You’ve got first seat if nobody else needs it! I’ll keep an eye on things and plan accordingly.
