Better late than never with the proper introduction! Trooped with the gang on a very rainy Saturday at Wales ComicCon as a technician from the V TV Series (1984). Couldn't make Sunday as well, so missed the better weather! This is my first foray into anything costume-related, so still learning the ropes. Me and Freja made the V costumes ourselves - I had to painstakingly sketch and draw the pattern from many viewings and re-viewings of the DVDs. Had the badges made locally, and learned to make the latex prosthetics by watching a bunch of videos on YouTube and experimenting. The latex is easier to use than you might think, for anyone that's interested in giving it a go themselves. Upcoming improvements to the costume this year include: bigger, more ambitious prosthetics (going for half-face, ultimately!), working on a hand-gun, sourcing closer-match military-style caps, redesigning the uniform collars slightly, and working on some possible variant costumes. Anything else? Oh yes - making the costume patterns available to the group in case anyone (Graham?) wants to make their own costume and join the Mothership! For next year, thinking about a second costume - maybe something from Dune...
A very warm welcome to you John, what an apt name considering your character. It was a pleasure to have you and Freja with us on the Saturday even with the poor weather. I will be looking into a possible costume change in the future, V was a favourite of mine so who knows. I do hope you can make it to a few more events with us in the future. Welcome once again

john: I'm good for this either as Dwarf or Marvin depending on clearance, or just mucking in and taking pics if nothing gets approval. I'll have my Mrs as a +1 taxi-driver, but she should be joining up when she gets her finger out.
