Icon Crew - Dance Central 2
Heather: We found those full body suits on ebay and really couldn't resist this. WE JUST COULDN'T. :( We collected the other black and white pieces (the ones we didn't have already) and put them allllll together to make Frenchy & Marcos of Icon Crew! The best part of these outfits are the fact that everyone who knows Icon Crew gets a kick out of it. We were afraid we would be the only ones who would get it and would be super sweaty hot and barely able to see for only our own amusement. But there was other amusement and that was all we could ask for - finding other fans of Dance Central at a con!
Oblio - Dance Central
Nate: Oblio! Such a fun word to say, and a fun character to cosplay as well! Oblio and Aubrey were our first forays into the Dance Central series. The shirt was created (and hand painted no less) by the lovely Heather! The pants, glove, glasses, and wig are all of questionable origin, although a healthy dose of the thrift store and ebay are likely culprits. I think the colored CFL bulbs we used in the shoot added ambiance and saved it from looking like we shot it in our house (which... ok yeah we did). Look out for a controlled return of the famous Oblio in 2014!
Miss Aubrey - Dance Central
Heather: Even though my favorite female character in the Dance Central series is now Jaryn, Miss Aubrey will still always hold a special, snarky place in my heart. If I wasn't playing as Oblio in the first game, I was playing as Aubrey and cackling at all of her snide remarks. Also, I loved the socks she wore with her standard outfit (School Daze). So when Nate and I talked about costuming as characters from the first game, she was the one I gravitated towards. She's too fabulous not to gravitate towards, naturally. ESPECIALLY IF YOUR NAME IS ANGEL.
