This was another blessedly easy cosplay brought on for A-Kon 2011 when I was six months pregnant. You can see my Amy from “The Beast Below” tutorial a couple weeks back if you’re interested in that too. The main items to find in this case are cropped pants and a flannel shirt. I had the cropped jeans already amongst my maternity wear, and I got a flannel shirt (I wasn’t able to find a three quarter sleeve like Amy’s, so I rolled up the sleeves of a regular one) in the men’s section of a resale shop.
Then you start writing on your arms. Hash marks everywhere. I had them on my neck, arms, anything that was visible. I also put a pen on a string like Amy’s (washable marker in my case) and held it to the string with masking tape. Yes, this was a high class operation. That let me add to the marks when I got bored or I washed my hands and things started to fade.
As you can see, by the end of the day, the costume had worked so well, I’d even found a couple of Doctors. GERONIMO!
