Re: So jealous...

Seriously contemplating my Daughter and I doing Jayne and Kaylee for at least one day of comic con. She wants me to make the layer cake dress. I am wondering what I am getting myself into...

In that case maybe you should go as Captain Tightpants!  big_smile

Re: So jealous...

So this is a touch old, but this year's Ottawa Comic Con promises Jewel Staite (probably the first one announced actually, at least it was the first announced on Facebook) so OBVIOUSLY I'll be going to that one!

I've been contemplating who I'd dress up as for it. I won't do as I did last year and go dressed as the person I was going to see (no thanks, no desire to cross-dress to see Kaylee...no desire to cross-dress period...except maybe to don a pretty floral bonnet  tongue ). I'm thinking I'll go as Captain Tightpants, I mean specifically the outfit he wore when he took Kaylee to the ball:

It's a lot of work though, and I'll have to sink a fair bit of money into it. Of course, I'm open to suggestion (hoping someone might have ideas that aren't expensive or maybe I'm missing a truly great idea here???). I was originally thinking as going as Snarf from Thundercats or Guybrush Threepwood from Monkey Island 3: The Curse of Monkey Island but that was before I found out Jewel would be there. Pretty sure I wanna go Firefly with her there.

Well, if you want to save on money you could always go as Mal from the opening of the episode 'Trash'.  wink

Being arrested for indecent exposure might probably curtail your access to the convention, mind...

Re: So jealous...

Yes, and I'd very much like to meet Jewel Staite instead of a pair of handcuffs, a blanket, and the back of a squad car.

...that and it might be chilly...  tongue

Someone's reading this putting "Jewel Staite", "indecent exposure", "a pair of handcuffs", "a blanket", and "the back of a car" together into a bit of a scenario.

Re: So jealous...

Oh man...okay, gotta rethink costumes. So they've just announced that this year's Ottawa Comic Con will feature both Jewel Staite AND Summer Glau. Probably the best character to go as to play off of both of them being there would be Simon...now the question is...which outfit?

I think this one would be the easiest to pull off:

But this particular one seems to be "the" Simon outfit:

Re: So jealous...

Definitely the second one, as I believe he wore that vest in more episodes then the suit... Good luck with the vest, though!

Re: So jealous...

Yeah, that vest has a fairly unique design, it's going to be hard to come up with something passable (though it may be I just have very high standards for myself for this con).

Re: So jealous...

Well, you want to be memorable for Jewel and Summer, eh?

My vote'd be for the second coz too; the first one could be mistaken for something Matrix-y or the like.

Ash

Re: So jealous...

Meh, not Matrix-y, that'd be trenchcoats which Simon isn't wearing. And a Wahmaker vest is definitely not Matrix-y.  wink

Actually this is him without the jacket over top which might be easier:

I could still conceivably do the glasses with this too...

Re: So jealous...

Yeah, I think with the vest and white shirt you'd be more recognizable. Doesn't have to be the gold vest...

Re: So jealous...

The gold vest is more iconic though, but yeah I agree Jason, as long as it's a vest and white shirt...I still want those glasses though. I also found lots of info people posted on the medical kit he carries around (the prop is apparently believed to be a beauty kit case which makes me feel slightly uncomfortable as people may not "get it" when paired up with the outfit, especially when the kit was such a minor prop).

Hm...any other suggestions on Simon stuff for me? Suggestions are always appreciated (or enjoyed when they aren't serious  wink ).

Re: So jealous...

Make sure to bring a dull personality along. And cross your arms a lot.

As for additional props, if you don't want to carry around the medical bag, wear a stethoscope around your neck (or both).

Also, make sure to wear the tie. I just did an image search for simon cosplay, and no one wears the tie. I think it completes the outfit. He also wore a variety of different vests from looking through pictures of the show, so I think you're fine choosing any vest that looks like one he wore.

If you could get the askKaylee girl to walk around with you, that would complete the outfit. ;p

Thanks Jason, that was really helpful! (now I'm picturing Kaylee saying that like in the scene in Jaynestown where she comments "that was so...historical") I will definitely have to wear the tie in that case. I'd consider asking the askKaylee girl but she has a Simon and I don't think she'd come to our ComicCon without him (they're RL boyfriend and girlfriend to the best of my knowledge, I could be wrong though). On the plus side though, my cousin and a friend of hers (an acquaintance of mine, who is also a girl) are both going and I'm convincing my cousin to dress up as someone and I don't think I'll have trouble getting her friend to. Her friend, personality-wise, is closest to Kaylee so I'd have to suggest she play Kaylee (though being mindful that she has a boyfriend who will not be there, who is also a friend of my cousin's and an acquaintance of mine, I'll recommend we play Kaylee and Simon in the early days where there was definitely no touchy-feely).

My cousin on the other hand...I have no clue. I'm thinking Inara or River, though I have a feeling she'd be against being Inara and wouldn't be so opposed to being River.

On the whole "dull personality" and "cross your arms a lot", I think that'll be pretty easy for me, however self-deprecating that might be of me to say, but it's sort of true - Simon and I have a fair bit in common, especially when it comes to talking to people and being very all-business in my interactions with people.
