It's been quite some time since I last wore Darth Talon.
Those who remember this costume may also remember that I wore her with a lycra suit. I've always felt a little insecure with showing too much skin, and the zentai was a good compromise on that. However, this weekend at LFCC, I decided to test my boundaries. So, armed with some rubbish snazaroo and a big can of hairspray, I went to the con.
I was VERY lucky to have a lovely lady called Kyrie, who is a tattooist and makeup artist, help me immesely with the bodypainting. Despite working with Snazaroo (which I hate), she managed to get it on reasonably evenly, and her work on the black tattooing was perfect! She followed me most of the day to keep an eye on the paintwork, touching it up as needed.
The result.... was this! I have NEVER felt better about my body than I did when wearing this. Thanks to Kyrie's patience and skill with makeup, and Darren Rowley's wonderful photography skills, I felt amazing all day. I am still amazed that I wore it without the suit, and even more amazed at how happy I felt walking around in so little!
So yes, this has been my most daring, and now possibly my most loved, costume to date!
