On Saturday, the Central California Garrison (part of the 501st) invited ajmeow and I to visit a kids hospital in Sacramento. They wanted us to dress up as Teen Titans and entertain the kids.
I was a bit nervous, since this is my first time doing something like this.
But surprisingly, after getting there and getting into costume. I was cool as a cucumber (as they say). I was pretty calm talking to the kids and posing for pictures, which should be second nature now right? LOL!
But seriously, it was a lot of fun and I felt really good doing it. We actually got a couple of the kids request the Titans, which is just so cool. :) The hospital staff were really impressed with Batman and Catwoman and kept asking us who we where and when Teen Titans is on Cartoon Network. LOL. :)
Thanks to the CCG for inviting us. :)
Here are some pictures of the visit.
The Star Wars costumers were from the Central California Garrison.
Batman and Catwoman are Zen Dragon and Tracy from Adventurers Place.
And last but not least, ajmeow and I were StarFire and Beast Boy from the Teen Titans.
Ok, so I've been having an interesting time getting the right green makeup for BB. I've tried lots of different name brands such as Ben Nye and Kryolan. The last stuff I tried was Kryolan and it turned out really horrible.
So I was going to give up and just keep trying things, until both ACX (from cp.com) and tristencitrine where raving on how great Kryolan Aquacolor was.
And so I got another batch of the stuff and it was fantastic! It went on really easily and even and smooth. For the most part, I didn't even need setting powder. At the end of the day I realized I probably do need some at the neckline, my costume was rubbing away some of the green.
But for the 2-3 hours I was there, it remained flawless. Anyway, I'm really sold on Kryolan now. :D
