SECOND PLACE: Chris Constantine | RORSCHACH | From DC Comics Watchmen
2nd Place Winner
Of The Facebook Comic Con Premiere Costume Competition...
Was Chris Constantine As 'Rorschach'!
Here Is Chris's Story... As told to Lisa Hager-Duncan, FBCC Costume Event Co-ordinator:
Second Place Winner - Chris Constantine:
This is the first time I've ever been in a costume contest, so it's a great debut for me.
I read the Watchmen a few times years back and with the film coming out it obviously influenced me a bit.
Rorschach is one of my favorite characters because of his shear brutality and strangeness. Not to mention it would be cheap to make.
So after hitting up a few thrift stores I got all I needed. It's a fairly simple costume and I wanted to make the most of it, especially by doing the mask right.
To make the story creepy, I actually found out halfway through finishing it that I'm the exact same height and weight as Rorschach. So I guess that told me that this was THE character for me.
Thanks to Chris for taking the time to tell his story! It will be posted at the FBCC Premiere Costume Competition page 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 Costume Competition page for all to view and congratulate!
The story of the 1st place winner has already been blogged here, and the 3rd place winner's story will also be blogged about in an upcoming post.
PLUS 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!
