Hey there, everyone! It's been ages since I have posted! Too much to do, and too many costumes to work on to actually finish anything!

Anyways, there was a comic convention here in Spokane, and, being the huge Batman freak that I am, I simply HAD to Dress up as The Scarecrow, from the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum. His costume is probably the scariest costume I have ever seen (I am terrified of Medical Needles. I'll very nearly pass out if I have to get blood drawn...). However, I am insanely obsessed with Dr. Jonathan Crane, the Master of Fear, so I fell in love with his costume! The best portrayal of him I have ever seen. Perfect.

Well, it was a hellish struggle to make it, and I agonized over it for about two and a half months. But in the end, I succeeded! I went with two of my best friends, who dressed up as Poison Ivy and The Penguin respectively. There were a TON of Batman Villains (No Batman, though.  Huh) It was cool to prowl around with the other villains and hunt for Batman. There was a costume contest, which I won 'Most Authentic!'. I was thrilled! Overall, it was a hoot and I had a ton of fun!

I am not going to go into huge details here on this post, since I just got done writing down all of it to post on my website, and it is far too much text to put here and expect all of you to remain reading. If you want to know more detail and see a ton more pictures, go to my website here: http://alexandra-the-great.webs.com/apps/blog/show/3913449-the-scarecrow-finished-

Anyways, here are the pictures!

The Reference pictures. This is what I was basing my costume off of:::

(Hanging out with the 501st Legion, who were also there! They are an amazing costumed volunteer organization dedicated to Star Wars. Look them up! I am joining once I get enough money to buy my Stormtrooper costume!)

Thanks for checking it out! Look on my site for a very detailed write up of how I made it, as well as more pictures and some in-progress ones as well!
