A Costume Combining Poe Dameron and Edgar Allan Poe
I can’t resist a clever costuming pun, and Beth Grimes went all out by mashing together Poe Dameron and Edgar Allan Poe for a recent costume debuted at CONvergence. It’s Edgar Allan Poe Dameron. She told BuzzFeed News she pulled the costume together relatively quickly:
“The base is a black flight suit, vintage military boots, and a black wig. The vest is made from spray-painted military surplus, padded belt spray-painted white and cut in half, and a spray-painted winter puffy vest. I sewed men’s webbed belts together and added leather tips and buckles for the harness. It was my first time trying greyscale makeup.”
