FIRST PLACE: Amber Love | FIRESTAR | From Marvel's Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends animated show
1st Place Winner
Of The Facebook Comic Con Premiere Costume Competition...
Was Amber Love As 'Firestar'!
Here Is Amber's Story... As told to Lisa Hager-Duncan, FBCC Costume Event Co-ordinator:
Amber Love: Firestar has been one of my favorite female characters since I watched "Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends" as a little kid. I was very reluctant to make & wear the costume because I didn't think too many people remembered her; but I got such an overwhelming response at NYCC '09 that I thought it would be well received here at the FBCC.
The mask is really uncomfortable and even makes the contact lenses want to pop out. Miss Lion was at NYCC but since I had to hold the sign for this contest and set the picture timer, I just didn't bring her into the picture this time. I do blog about my costume making if anyone is interested, at: www.herofashions.blogspot.com & www.theleagueofheroes.yuku.com
I've entered the Marvel Costume Contest at NYCC for a couple of years but never placed. The only other contest I won was an online contest through someone's MySpace.
I was honored with the title of 2008 League of Heroes MVP through the wonderful LoH community. And each year, I'm the NJ Wonder Woman for the annual Wonder Woman & Superheroes charity event.
Thanks to Amber Love for taking the time to tell her story! It will be posted at the FBCC pages for all to enjoy and to congratulate in the months to come.
Actually all three of the winning entries names / costumes worn are now posted on the FBCC pages for all to view and congratulate! The stories of the 2nd place & 3rd place winners will also be blogged in upcoming post(s).
And congratulations are also in order to all that entered the First Ever FBCC Costume Competition! As one of the five judges for this event, I can say that they were all winners in my book as it was hard to judge all the great entries!
Here's the details on how you can view all the entries including the three winning entries:
