I have always appreciated Cosplay, but never participated until now. On Friday (Day Two of MegaCon 2016) I Cosplayed as the Punisher! My requirements were: 1. Cheap! 2. Something where I didn’t have to shave my beard. It worked out nicely, because I decided to do the version of Punisher wherehe had a beard and had battle damage bandages around his eye.
I figured I could get away with some Tech Black Cargo pants, the Punisher T-Shirt and a wrap around my eye, but my wife helped take it to the next level! She helped apply the bandages more realistically and added the nose bandage and black-eye makeup.
I think next time I will upgrade to more padding and weapons. I have to say walking around a busy Convention with a “missing eye” really made me appreciate having my eyesight!
My first time Cosplaying was a success. I had so much fun and took some cool pictures. It was great hearing compliments for my thrown together costume.
