Yomiko and the Flash

Yomiko and the Flash, originally uploaded by Kelson.

Here’s me with my wife at Comic-Con International today, dressed as Yomiko Readman (a.k.a. The Paper) from the anime Read or Die and Jay Garrick, the Golden Age Flash!

The hat is a paper mache base with model magic over it, then spray paint and varnish. Katie volunteered to make it for me and it came out great! Sometime next week she’ll make a guest post about how the various costume pieces are constructed, so keep an eye out!

Update: The making-of posts are up!

More photos in my Comic-Con 2009 set.

    Oh! I saw you two! What a random coincidence. (I was one of the two gals with a guy in a wheelchair that said “Oh wow! Jay Garrick!” at a crosswalk exiting the convention center around midday.)

    You make a great Jay!
    Many compliments to your wife on the construction of the helmet. :)

    Oh there you are! I always thought you were a much older guy, don’t ask why! Your costume is simple but great because of its uncomplicated design! See you at the Con tomorrow! I’ll try to wear something “flashy”!

    Thanks, everyone! @Elfgrove, it’s cool that we ran into each other, even if we didn’t know it at the time!

    I have to wonder now if Jay Garrick in the comics is actually able to wear jeans as part of his costume, instead of whatever kind of pants he has been wearing.
