So it’s time to start amassing parts of costumes for the year’s cons. I’ve got half of my Battlestar Galactica BDUs done, but before I buy the last parts of that costume, I’m starting on my TCF F.A.S.T. (Fleet Anti-Terrorist Strike Team) costume, aka the Divine Devils. Aka the Lady Jarheads. Heh. ;-) Just so you realize how geeked out that is—as if it isn’t geeked out enough already!—we’re an all-female Marine strike team set in the Battlestar Galactica universe, outfits based on the various Marine tac-gear outfits worn by different gals throughout Battlestar episodes. Like a few others in my group, I’m going for Starbuck’s look in BSG: Razor:
I found a very cheap airsoft version of the gun, an MP7, and while the cheap one might not look as fancy as a higher-end version, it’s easy to afford now and will do the job for Megacon. ;-) The costume even has specific Victoria’s Secret black panties that go w/the uniform (from a black panty reference in the show). And there will be panty checks at cons. Yep, panty checks.
But the most hilarious part of our team is…wait for it…we’re doing a calendar! Yep, the Divine Devils will be shooting a calendar at some point this year. *No* idea what we’ll do with it (maybe raise money for charity or something), but let me say that the fun is in the planning, lol.
This will be such a wild year.
