Gambit (X-Men) Cosplay

So I know it's way early, bit I've already started on my costume for DragonCon. The biggest part of it was his glowing cards, which I just finished a few days ago. I'm now adding the finishing touches to the staff and trench coat (will post pics of those soon as I finish them).

But for now, I introduce Gambit's Lady Love



What do you guys think? It's my first "working" prop I've ever made and I could use some opinions on it. Thanks in advance

It's never too early to start working on a costume. Dragon*con will be here before you know it and you want to be prepared.

That said, I saw Gambit in the thread subject and had to give it a look. He's always been one of my favorite comic characters. I think it's very awesome you are going the extra mile to make the cards glows. Regular playing cards are good props for him, glowing ones, a million times better. I think, from what you have in the picture, it's looking good so far. I would love to see it in person. Hopefully going to Dragon*con for the first time will work out for me this year and I will get to see it.

Oh! Very nice!!! You don't see a Gambit with actual glowing cards often. I love it and like Mehdia said, it's always nice to see someone taking that one extra step with their ideas. Keep up the great work! Can't wait to see the progress on the rest of the costume!

Right now I have just the one glowing card, but I'm planning on making a few more. I'll also be carrying a few decks of regular playing cards for added effect.

And thanks for the feedback

Thanks

I just have to say I am totally freaking out at the glowing card. I am a major Gambit fan and if this is how you are starting the costume you are definently on the right track. Can't wait to see the rest of the costume.

Did you finish other parts of the cosplay for DragonCon? Post pics! And if you're procrastinating.... you've got the internet to support/yell at you.
You can do it!

Nice, that looks so awesome! I don't ever see Gambit with real glowing cards. I'd love to see the whole look together.
