Some cosplayers sink hundreds upon hundreds of dollars, and/or hundreds upon hundreds of hours, into creating that perfect costume. Artist Patrick Dean is not one of those people. Or he wouldn’t be, if he did cosplay. A self-described “cheapskate,” Dean created the Tumblr My Half Assed Cosplay Ideas for his cheat-sheet illustrations of how a theoretical cosplayer version of himself would dress as various superheroes using things he (mostly) already has around the house.
I want someone to do a version of this for sci-fi action heroines now. Alas, I have not the drawing skills. Anyone? Bueller?
