Ok, let's get serious, nobody is reading this part, your eyes are elsewhere. Do people even still play this game? Anyway, I'm trained in various martial arts (shuri ryu, jujitsu, and wrestling primarily) and spent two years competing. I have three state titles. So Tina's a good match for me as far as characters go :)

I chose to make the bra ultra glitzy because Tina's the resident wrestler and we all know how glam wrestlers make their costumes. It seemed appropriate.

This costume is surprisingly (and appropriately?) durable for legitimate street fights and tussles. How I learned this is not important.

New photos of a not-so-new costume.

My Supergirl has only been worn for charity events and hospital visits with the Avengers Initiative/West Coast Avengers. To date, it hasn't seen a convention. That may change in the future, but for now, Supergirl is my elusive charity baby.

New Applejack photos, courtesy of EBK :) I'm so excited to share these.

Since our group photos from Dragoncon 2011, I fussed with the wig a little bit. I decided to ditch the ears and use full jeans and my real boots for this shoot because it looked a lot more legit with the settings. It was hella cold anyway, the shorts would have been miserable :P

Missed not shooting with the girls this go around!

Due to my volunteer work with the Avengers Initiative (as Supergirl), I was asked to submit a Marvel character costume for membership with West Coast Avengers. Originally, I had two other characters of interest, but ultimately neither of them felt right, and I prolonged applying, wondering if I was going to find a Marvel lady who resonated with me as well as Supergirl does.

This is (basically) how the conversation went down:
WCA: "Rose, you need a Marvel character to be officially brought into our group."
Me: "K."
WCA: "Shield agents are very easy to put together for the sake of the initial application."
Me: "Mreh."
WCA: "Captain America could always use USO girls. How about you do one of the USO girls?"
Me: "I'd rather be Captain America."
WCA: "In that case, let me introduce you to American Dream."

So. I picked up her comics and I truly loved her, her story, and her history. So I said "yes, Dream, I'll strap myself into a unitard for you."

On a more personal level, my grandparents came to the USA during WW2 from Russia. They didn't like to talk about what happened during the war, and were grateful to have have gotten over here at all. Most of my earliest memories are of my grandpa. Though I mourn the loss of our eastern European culture due to his adamant insistence on assimilation, I know that ultimately, my life was improved because of him. He'd be hella proud of this today. This one's for you, gramps.

FEELS GOOD.

American Dream~ Me!
