This was initially going to be a big TCR homage/send-up like the Better Know a District segments, anime convention-style, but due to conflicts it was pared down to just Jon and Stephen, full stop.
I modeled Stephen's gear from his Conan/Stewart/Colbert fight, where he wears a black suit, a white shirt w/ french cuffs and a gold/blue striped tie. Partly because it's smexy and partly because I couldn't just throw together whatever and go "hurr I'm Colbert" with a straight face. It had to be recognizable. I opted for three buttons instead of two, due to personal preference. xD
The wig is a Halloweenish poc I've had for ages and is the first time I've ever layer cut anything. Not too shabby.
Fun fact: Doc is... an inch shorter than Jon, while Colbert and I are the same height (5'10"). So that helped a lot in terms of posing and all that. For once in my life I'm finally the right height as the subject I'm cosplaying lol.
Epic times. :3
ETA: For all you OCD fans, Jon is wristrong purely because we forgot to take it off for photos. Mine is behind Doc's back.
ETA II: Hooooooly crap, this made it onto Comedy Central. HELLO INTERNETS. b We love you.

THIS IS WONDERFUL.
You guys are AMAZING. <3
Stephen has the wristband. That IS Jon's hair. And the ties - they've actually worn ties like that on the shows. Wow.
That's all I have to say.
We should be attending Yulecon this year as well. So we might see you there too!
I really wanted to get my hands on Colbert's actual frames for this, which have slightly rounder lenses and are smaller overall, but they were well out of my budget. Had to stick with readers, blah.
