Here I have used a pill bottle, but a small zip pouch can also be used, and might be less visible if you are wearing a tight fitting costume.
The scenario is that costumes often have accidents, whether something rips or fall apart. Quick fixes on the go can help you stay on the con floor in costume way longer.
In my kit I added these things:
- Safety pins
- Bobby pins
- Q-tip (here cut on halves to fit my bottle)
- Small tube of super glue
- Eyelash glue
- Paper clip
- Small piece of Velcro
To keep the needle secure and prevent my fingers to get stabbed when reaching down into the bottle, I keep it between the two pieces of Velcro.
Other things I normally bring with me is small syringes of lens water and a lens cover, both to moisten up my eyes or to be able to take the lenses of when I don't want to wear them any longer.
And if possible I bring my lip makeup and/or a straw. During the con I should be drinking a lot of water and then my "blue alien space babe" makeup will disappear.
Do you have any other smart tips on what to bring to a con then let me know in the comments below :)
