Julie Johnson 1

Picture 1 of 5

Julie Johnson – by day, Julie is a legal secretary and likes to read comics and play video games.

Julie is also a Pegasister (the female equivalent of a brony). She is the head of Utah’s “Crystal Mountain Ponycon”. Julie dressed as Princess Celestia and Spitfire at the con this year. Princess Celestia had a bit of armor that was involved. https://www.facebook.com/CrystalMtnPonyCon

Today Julie is cosplaying Formal Captain America and is wearing a formal ball gown Captain America costume. It’s a 50’s look Captain America. Julie has been cosplaying for four years and got started when her friends finally talked her into it.

She also recently dressed as Rapunzel from Tangled, including a monster wig that Julie made herself by combining a couple of wigs together. The most uncomfortable part was the wig pulling on her forehead. It pulled enough that it formed a bruise. After asking Julie how to improve that situation, she suggested pinning it to your head better. Then she clarified that often if you wear a wig, you’ll braid the hair tight up against your hair underneath. This braid will then provide good spots to pin your wig onto your head and add stability.

In the future, you can expect to see Julie dressed as Fem Loki. Also she would like to do something from indie horror games Eve or Mad Father. She’s thinking the mother from Mad Father and something from Eve.

Trevor Nielson
Writer & Photographer at ComicCon.tips
Trevor began his forray into nerdom as a kid peddling his bike all the way to the local bookstore to purchase comic books. The boring superhero comics weren’t good enough for Trevor, he wanted the real ones. The ones with ducks. Now who's laughing while he’s on his way to cash in all those valuable Ducktales comics. Soon he’ll have his own money bin full to the brim. These days, to fill the time before the money bin construction completes (and begins), Trevor fills his time with photography, movies, television and comic book conventions. You can find his cosplay Meet & Greet mini-shoot and articles on this site as well as prints of his photographs being sold by cosplayers throughout the land.

P.S. Trevor converted to Marvel & DC comics and movies later on, so no heartburn on that one, right?
