So I made four costumes in a span of about ten weeks for Fanime (muffled sobbing), and by far the most fun to put together was MANFIRE. I had planned to do a Rule 63 Nightwing for a few years, and Chris and I joked about him doing the same with the New 52 Starfire, basically wearing nothing but purple booty shorts, and thus MANFIRE was born.
This costume was a fun learning experience in armor and latex and hair bleach (who knew you could bleach facial hair?) and we had the best time debuting at Fanime 2013. It was super duper well received, and we will definitely be revisiting this with new and improved shoulder armor next time!
For now, enjoy my super photogenic manthing as Korimand’r, Prince of Tamaran, and MANFIRE!
