Last Saturday at at CONvergence , a sci-fi and fantasy convention located in in Bloomington, Minnesota, cosplayer Beth Grimes debuted her new costume: A mashup between Star Wars’ Poe Dameron and author Edgar Allan Poe. How brilliant is that?
“The base is a black flight suit, vintage military boots, and a black wig. The vest is made from spray-painted military surplus, padded belt spray-painted white and cut in half, and a spray-painted winter puffy vest. I sewed men’s webbed belts together and added leather tips and buckles for the harness. It was my first time trying greyscale makeup.”
