SDCC Showcase: Tribute to Camilla d’Errico’s Helmet Girls
Here’s another roundup of photos from SDCC! I added a Camilla d’Errico Helmet Girls tribute to the lineup last minute, and was lucky enough to have Lisa Lou Who whip something up and join me. The costume took about a week from start to finish (you can see some WIP photos here), with the helmet mostly made of craft foam and Worbla.
I had a day or two to spare prior to the convention, and so a friend helped me wire the helmet with little motors. You can spy it in motion in the GIF above, and a longer clip of Lisa and I in this SDCC cosplay video!
Lisa and I were able to meet and chat with Camilla, as well as her sister AdaPia, and were smitten to spend a bit of time with them.
This was the first time I’ve done a costume inspired by traditional art rather than a game or comic character, but I was pleasantly surprised by how many people recognized Camilla’s signature style.
