Outside of looking the most like Saffron, I also chose to be her so that I could do a couple's cosplay with my boyfriend, Dan, who portrayed Captain Malcolm Reynolds. He and I had put together his costume from various thrift stores around Columbus, and were able to find everything expect for the correct suspenders (and holster). At the time, we had settled for tightish khaki pants that we modified with brown stripes up the sides, and buttons for the suspenders. Next year, we'll likely commission Dark Spectre to make the high waisted pants he wears throughout the show, as she has the pattern and craftsmanship to make it look screen accurate. With the extra time, we'll be able to track down the correct suspenders, too! For what we were able to find though, we were both happy, especially because his costume was so incredibly inexpensive!
Our Inara was pretty popular with the crowd, and she was super cute to boot!
I hope that you enjoyed our attempt at Firefly! We'll be revisiting this wonderful cosplay group next year!
