22nd February 2013: Day after the con de brief So the package didn't arrive in time. according to royal mail tracking post it'll be here Monday or Tuesday.
Anyways, I improved with a black toga-ish piece of velvet, and wore my every day shoes and I got a LOT of photo requests. which did make me rather happy :)
A lot of people asked who I was but I got the reaction of as soon as I said "Femme Hades of Hercules" I got this or some variation of the line "I totally see it now! That's AWESOME"
A lot of people commented on the hair, and yes having my hair add on about 10 inches of height was rather fun.
I'll upload photos soon of the costume at the con and I'm thinking of repeating if I do Kapow or LFCC and that way I can add photos of the full costume, real toga, fancy shoes and all. :)
