i look at you, and i just love you, and it terrifies me. it terrifies me what i would do for you. — Alexandra Bracken, Never Fade

"Cartoons? Isn’t that for kids?" I look up and smile " Yes it is" Suddenly my appearance shifts and shrinks as I become a child. All my money turns to monopoly money and all my bills are gone. My adult responsibilities vanish, finally the spell is broken, and I am free.
alright! so, i’ve been at nycc the past couple of days and i decided to commission one of my absolute favorite artists, marcusto, to draw me wally in a flash tshirt… because, lets be real here, wally would totally rep a flash shirt on the reg. i told him to do whatever he wanted beyond that, so we ended up with wally being a heathen and eating french fries by the handful (“no, you can’t have a fry. i ran all the way to france for these.”) . again, totally normal. the original drawing is on the left, and my coloring of it is on the right
because i’m a complete nut who doesn’t know how to stop. sorry.
disclaimer: i have never digitally colored anything in my life, nor do i have any artistic talent whatsoever, so this was a fun little project for me, too. i just think wally is the most adorable thing (i couldn’t even contain my excitement at marcus’ table, it was embarrassing) and figured i’d share both versions. thanks again, marcus, i absolutely love it and i hope you don’t mind that i toyed with it a bit! enjoy, y’all~

Bringing you another Costoberfest Spotlight, this time from the United Kindgom!
Roxy has been attending and working at comic conventions since she was 15. It was a few years later, while working at a local London Convention and attending to the voice actors from Futurama, that one suggested to Roxy that she should try costuming. She took the idea and ran with it, convincing her friends to join her! In the beginning she says she was terrified and self conscious but it was only a short time and she found herself part of the very welcoming costuming community.
In the beginning Roxy looked to her friends to create costumes, but now she sews and crafts her costumes all on her own. Roxy says, “I am lucky enough to have some very talented friends within the costume community who have been a great support. I always say though, the best way to learn is to just give it a go and I have made lots of mistakes along the way but that is just how you learn.”
A huge cartoon fan, Roxy found her love for Marvel via the classic cartoons, including her favorite character, Rogue. Plus she states that she geeks out over amazing costumes, specially X-Men ones!
Thanks to Roxy! You can see even more of her costumes over at her FaceBook Page!
