Supergirl and Supergirl try out for an updated version of The Parent Trap at NYCC
If you're a regular reader of MTV Geek, you no doubt are quite familiar with the concept of cosplay at conventions -- but did you ever consider that there is a fashion science to the whole thing as well? Well, MTV Style's Mary H.K. Choi -- with help from Supergirl, Evil Supergirl, Duella Dent, Daenerys Targaryens and more -- is going to give us a tour of New York Comic Con through the lens of Fashion with her Cosplay Style Guide!
Not MTV Style's usual interview
Choi was particularly taken with the stunning Daenerys Targaryens cosplay at the show, including one young woman who chose to portray a rather violent scene from Game Of Thrones:
We took a camera on the convention floor to check out all the action AND even got an awesome Halloween costume idea because (where my Game of Thrones fans at???) we saw a slew of Daenerys Targaryens, which is easier to put together than you'd think. And for all you NON-NERDS, she is a beautiful blonde princess who is married to a great-big burly horse thief KING and they have a lot of sex—and she's got these powers that have to do with dragons and eats this heart this one time and OBVI I have said too much. Don't judge me.
A special shout-out was made to people who make their own costumes, rather than simply picking up a Sparkly Sexy Adult Rainbow Brite getup from one's local hip drugstore:
"...the final (promise) thing I did want to mention is that we deliberately picked people who MADE their costumes. As in with glue guns, sewing machines (yes even the lovely ladies in Supergirl stereo), and HEART. Each ensemble took many months of TOILING so we didn't choose anyone with store-bought situations. WE HAVE FASH STANDARDS."
There you have it: if you want to be the most sartorially awesome cosplayer on the block, Care Counts!
