Our second Costoberfest 2014 Spotlight is on Kevin and Laura who have made some epic costumes over the last few years!
Kevin and Laura were first introduced to costuming 2011 at Emerald City Comic Con. Overwhelmed and amazed by the costumes, they were later convinced to get into costume themselves!
So, for their first costume, they decided to tackle Galactus! Working together, Kevin built the Galactus helmet, while Laura sewed the costume, and a masterpiece was born!
In the words of Laura, “My husband came wandering out of the garage, put a paper bag shaped like a bucket over his head, and said, “Can you take my picture?” A few months later, I was taking pictures of his Galactus helmet.”
Kevin discovered comics when he was in 6th grade through a toy line called the Micronauts. Through the toys and old comics from his Uncle, Kevin became an avid reader of Amazing Spider-Man, the X-Men and Fantastic Four!
With his costume choices, one can see that Kevin has a love for villains, including Magneto and M.O.D.O.K.! Plus he is an avid collector of statues!
We thank Kevin and Laura for their love of costuming and can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
