I’ve always wanted to get Psylocke photos with the cherry blossoms, Kevin made this come true! We went to High Park while the cherry blossoms were in bloom to shoot, it was packed with wedding shoots at the time. This costume is one of my favorites for Psylocke and seldom done, I love seeing old school costumes cosplayed.
Just thought I would get on here for a second to talk about why I’m so proud to be a part of this group. These are the Lightning Bolts, our answer to Iron Man’s Ironettes and Captain America’s USO girls.
Not only did we design and produce identical costumes at the last minute before DragonCon to help Tally’s dream of doing this come true, we also took a stand for the ladies.
On two seperate occasions that night members of our group were sexually harrassed. Both times the Lightning Bolts took matters into their own hands and made it known that not only was it not acceptable, but it wasn’t going to just slide by. The first guy was removed from the con, the second who actually physically assaulted the girl was arrested. In both cases the girls stood their ground and in one case chased him across the hotel in 4 1/2” platform wedges so that he wouldnt escape authorities.
So basically you shouldnt sexually harass a group of girls who fangirl over the god of thunder.
I was about three feet away from the second incident and let me tell you, this group sprang to ACTION. <3 <3 <3 LADIES!!
