I just got to see the Minion movie this weekend (laugh-out-loud-adorable, by the way) and thought I’d share this epic Minion Halloween Costume tutorial with you all. Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous posted this one a couple of years ago, but given the recent movie, I imagine Minions will be super popular this year. Plus, I think it’d be pretty easy to adapt these patterns to adult sizes, if you’re of the adventurous type.

Those may not be the droids you’re looking for, but O Comic Con’s inaugural show was definitely something to see, especially the cosplay. (All photos courtesy of Brent Schumacher from BPI Multimedia).
A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasuring of taking The Costume Wrangler’s Closet to O Comic Con, the first pop culture convention in the Omaha, NE region. The expected turnout was estimated to be around 3,000 people. They had twice that over the course of three days, and attendees did not disappoint when it came to the cosplay.
From She-Hulk, to Thor, to Anime characters, Steampunk Wonder Woman, kids in costume, the 501st Legion, a kick-butt dinosaur, and so much more, there were tons of great cosplayers strutting their stuff at O Con. For more of the extraordinary cosplay that was at O Con be sure to take a look at professional photographer Brent Schumacher’s galleries here!

This is the last of Figments and Filaments, a new cosplay convention in KC. They had several really awesome costumes on display, including this really well made 18th century suit (a cutaway coat, waistcoat, and breeches). All you need are hose, heeled shoes with buckles, ribbons, and a wig. Men knew how to dress in the 1700s.
Have you heard of the Iron Brothers of Topeka? They’ve got some of the coolest cosplay I’ve ever seen, and it was especially cool to see them at Figments and Filaments in Kansas City. The convention itself was pretty small, so we were able to get up close (and yes, that’s me) and get pictures. By the way, that’s the Iron Brothers’ very own cosplay Stan Lee.
From furry foxes to partying princesses, there was nothing but costumes and cosplay at the second annual Figments and Filaments convention in Kansas City this past weekend.
