Our last day of Planet Comicon 2015 gave John a chance to speak with one of Planet Comicon’s most popular cosplay guests, Abby Dark-Star. Abby came to Kansas City with her husband Keith (stage name – Zen Dragon) from the San Francisco Bay area. She is a SF Giants fan but loves Jack Stack Barbecue so I guess we can let it slide.
From her website we can find that Abby got into costuming by way of being a theater geek. Influenced by her stay at home Dad, her afternoons were filled with cartoons, comics and old tv shows like Battlestar Galactica and Dr. Who. She enjoys passing on the joys that she experienced as a child to people and families at conventions.
Here is our interview with her from the floor of Planet Comicon 2015.

Here are some pictures of Abby in some of her popular costumes including Starbuck, Troi and Canary from the DC Bombshell line designed by Ant Lucia. Abby and Zen create nearly all of their own costumes and love the creative craft of design as much as the actual wearing of the costumes.
If you would like to see more of Abby it isn’t difficult. In fact, some of Abby’s costumes allow you to see quite a bit more of her so if you aren’t a fan of ‘sexy’ cosplay, then these links probably aren’t for you. You’ve been warned.

We hope that Abby has a great time traveling to Australia but that she keeps coming back to Kansas City for Barbecue. Thanks again Abby!
