About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- I was asked to submit a Marvel character costume for membership with West Coast Avengers. Originally, I had two other characters of interest, but ultimately neither of them felt right, and I was wondering if I was going to find a Marvel lady who resonated with me as well as Supergirl does.
I honestly had no clue American Dream existed before someone showed her to me. INTRIGUED. I instantly picked up her comics and I truly loved her, her story, and her history. So I said yes, Dream, I'll strap myself into a unitard for you.
On a more personal level, my grandparents came to the USA during WW2 from Russia. They didn't like to talk about what happened during the war, and were grateful to have have gotten over here at all. Most of my earliest memories are of my grandpa. Though I mourn the loss of our Eastern European culture due to his adamant assimilation, I know that ultimately, my life was improved because of him. He'd be hella proud of this. This one's for you, gramps.
