this was taken right after I was fully dressed. I'd gone to the con in normal clothes with my costume in a bag. I went to the ladies room and wore the tunic, pants and boots in the stall, then went out and was putting the rest of it on with a little help from
a bunch of people were following this amazing Elphaba cosplay who was coming to the rest room area. and that group saw me getting my costume on and waited for me to be ready.
by the time I put on the mask and turn around there were up to 15 or so people right there asking for photos... it was NUTS!!!!!
the rest of my day was fabulous. nuff said.
