The High Park photoshoot was approaching, and I didn't know what to wear. Instead of doing the logical thing and rewearing any of my costumes, I decided to make use of the black bodysuit I'd mostly finished, and pull the rest of this together.
Overall...I'm pleased. I want to add a collar to the suit, and remake most of the cape. (And make my bracers comfortable.) The insetting I am suuuuuuper happy with.
But yes. Speedy! It's Green Arrow's female sidekick! (After she returns from England and decides not to be red anymore.)
Costume completely made by me. The bow is borrowed from *Stargazer-Gemini. It is a real bow.
Durrrrrrr...meant to upload more photos from the snow shoot forever ago. But I've been busy. Playing video games and working on the website. (Mostly videogames...)
This costume is...probably my favourite thing ever. I love it so much. My labor of love for October (and still not technically done...bracers...) Lots of insetting and...fun. Now I just need to make White Lantern Ice and regular Ice...
I finally got my Donna Troy costume out for some photos!
Costume Construction: I drafted a pattern for a Donna by altering a pre-existing pattern I've made. The bodysuit is made from four way stretch glitter velvet, I'm still finding glitter everywhere from sewing it. I put under-bust seams into the bodysuit to help the bodysuit mold to my body. I designed to suit to have a large enough neck opening to allow for no zipper. I applied rhinestones all over the bodysuit by hand using E600. The suit has multiple constellations mapped on the suit including Scorpio on my thigh, Virgo on my hip and Orion on my calf.
All the silver sections are made using silver metallic spandex. My gauntlets are made from craftfoam and covered in the spandex and the belt is gathered under the belt buckle to give it dimension. The belt buckle is sculpted by me using Scult It, painted, varnished and attached with a snap. I made my chocker from PVC with a sculpted silver eagle and my earrings which are silver moons.
I had meant to upload more photos of this once I had gotten around to doing another shoot, but seeing as that hasn't happened yet, I figured...I should upload some more photos from the same shoot.
Good god I hate coming up with titles...
So once again Heroes in Tights contacted us about wearing some of their costumes, though this time for Wizard World Toronto 2011. I was happy to do it, especially since I'd wanted to do a Psylocke costume, but didn't care particularly if I made it or not.
So! Psylocke it was. I was also accompanied by the lovely *gillykins as Dark Phoenix and ~darkelf205 as Black Widow. You should check out their pages!
And before it comes up, yes, I know Psylocke does not wear heels. But a) the Kotobukiya statue has heels, and b) Psylocke also is a comic book character with perfect proportions. I am not.
