DragonCon 2010 Mysterio Pictures

In the Parade, I was wearing the plastic “safety” globe. Visibility out of it was about 2%. I basically followed a succession of brightly colored costumes (Storm’s white hair, wonder woman’s bright red cape, Zoo Hercules’ gold reflective bandoleer, etc).

The photos below show the glass sphere which I wore in more static settings indoors and for photo-shoots. Thanks to Chris, Becky and the photographers named in the captions for sending me photos from Saturday and Sunday!

Most photographers would take a snap or two and move on. Professional photographers would take a few pictures, and then start trying to take pictures without their flash appearing in the reflection (bouncing off of the ceiling, holding flash behind screens, separating from their camera by long wires, etc). Then give up on that, and just shoot photos of other people’s costumes as seen reflected in the globe. Women would also use the reflection to check their hair and makeup. [One in-character zombie was scared away by their own reflection.]

Kibbles,
I bought the silver (glass) one at Pottery Barn (see this post:

But you have to cut a hole out and reinforce it yourself:

I bought the plastic one at spirithalloween.com, a Halloween superstore, as part of an “Animated Fortune Teller” crystal ball decoration : http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/animated-fortune-teller-crystal-ball-decoration/#

(But they are currently sold out.)

That’s.. Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Mysterio has always been one of my favorite characters in just about anything. And on many occasions I’ve thought about a Mysterio costume and about making it, but then I always get to the helmet and, well, pretty much just give up there. When it comes to solid masks, I simply don’t have the tools nor any clue of how to execute it. So mostly, I’m still in a primitive stage, limited to cloth and cardboard.

What you’ve done here is simply amazing, and I salute you. Very well done.
