Costume mishaps are an inevitability. Hot glue fails, threads come unraveled, and fabric rips. You can only carry so many repair supplies. But, if Captain Patch-It is around, you don’t have to sweat it. The helpful hero was spotted at Supanova Pop Culture Expo, and according to his Facebook page, he’s “A lone repairman roaming conventions in a never-ending crusade against cosplay malfunctions and breakages.”
He wears a vest stocked with duct tape, thread, safety pins, bobby pins, scissors, and a hot glue gun among other items. This is an absolutely brilliant idea, and I’m kind of hoping each convention makes their own version of this character to aid cosplayers.
See a couple more pics featuring the hero and his tool kit after the break.
