Costume Construction:

The bodysuit it made from a custom pattern drafted by myself. The suit has a combination of modified princess seams and angled hip darts to shape the suit and belly window. The bodysuit is made from black and white metallic spandex. The bodysuit has built in leggings for the sake of 'modesty' and comfort.

The boots are boot-covers created over a pair of combat boots. I used wet look purple spandex for the base of the boot and ribbed a section under the knee for detailing and to help keep the boot up. The strapping and lower shoe guard are made from purple vinyl. The knee pads are highly modified children's knee guards which I ripped apart, rebuilt and then coated in a semi gloss glaze.

The belts and pouches are made from the same purple vinyl. I created my own pattern for the pouches and engineered my own design for the belts. My belt buckle is made from resin marbled in black and gold.

My arm guards are altered children shin guards which I've heat formed, painted and altered to fit my arms. My cape clasps are resin casted and painted with a metallic gold. The cape is made from a lightweight poly-satin and the same metallic white spandex used on the suit. The bottom of the cape is heat sealed to allow the cape to flow in the wind.

The mask is made from craft foam, heat & bond and purple wet look spandex. I also sewed elastic onto the temples of the mask to hold it on.
I created a paper mock-up of my face to get the spacing of the eyes, nose and jaw correct. Then I used the paper pattern to create a craftfoam mock-up to see how the heat forming would fit my face and to make sure craftfoam was the right material to use. I followed this up with cutting out a final copy of the mask from craftfoam, sewing on the elastic and applying heat and bond to the surface. I attached the wet look spandex to the heat and bond, then I cut off the excess fabric around the mask. I then heated the mask and molded it to my face.

I wasn't lying when I said I was working on a Huntress costume! This particular version of Huntress has been on my dream list of costumes for a long time. I have a soft spot for the ridiculous belly window and booty shorts.

This is an example of cosplay recycling at its best. I used to have a Catwoman costume but I lost weight and it unfortunately was to big! I decided to chop it up and take it in. In the process I created my 'Black Canary' costume. RECYCLING MAGIC!

I really wish I could take credit for this costume but alas I cannot, The entire costume was made for me by Heroes in Tights [link] who asked me to 'model' and help promoted them at Toronto Wizard World.

By god I'm super pale O.O... I need to get some sun

I can take credit for the tone of purple, the wig and my pistol bow though! Originally there was a colour mix up for the purple which was originally quite pink and there wasn't enough time to change to fabric, so I dyed the fabric to get a darker lavender which is consistent with the colour portrayed in most of the comic panels.
Overall I love this costume, especially since this version is Huntress at her peek. I planed on doing a Huntress costume eventually so it worked out perfectly!

My Zatanna photoshoot with Dana is finally up on Geek Girls! You can view the entire set of photos on the Geek Girls website. Big thanks go to Dana for coming to Toronto to shoot with me and the Royal Alexandra Theater for allowing us to use the box office area!


Costume Construction:
The tail coat is a vintage 1930's tail coat in almost perfect condition (few little rips in the lining) it was actually made in Toronto by a Bill Fargular in October 1936 (there is a tag on the inside of the inner breast pocket with that cool info). The vest and bottoms are made from a custom drafted patterns. The bow tie is also made by me.

I was looking forward to shooting with Adam at NYCC... pretty sure you can see why!

Costume Construction:

Fabric shopping was the biggest battle for this costume, matching the blues in fabric was a big pain. I would find a fabric I like, move it to the cutting table next to another blue only to realize it was purple!

The dress is made from a two way stretch silk knit jersey. I made a custom pattern for the dress which has a halter style neckline and side slits up to my waist. The 'arm warmers' are made from a combination to dark blue suede and silk knit jersey. I added details of suede strapping, gold buckets and gold studs for more visual interest (inspired by the Ame-Comi statue).

My cape is a modified Simplicity (5794) cape pattern. My favorite fabric to use for capes is a matte satin, I love the weight and the slight shine it has. I heat sealed the bottom of the cape to allow for optimum cape movement.

My belt is custom made and resin cast by me. I use Castin Craft for my resin pieces, it stinks to high heaven and takes 3 hours to set... but the pieces come out flawless. The circular pieces are made using a per-existing mold whereas my raven center piece is custom sculpted, molded and cast by me. The belt is painted using Krylon gold metallic spray paint. All the cast belt pieces are mounded on a dark blue pleather belt made by me.

Starfire always needs some badass starbolts!
I decided to go with the cartoon colouring of the starbolts because doing them in the red/pink/purple [link] just doesn't look as graphic.

Costume Construction:
Starfire is a costume you look at and think "I can't totally make that easily" but when you sit down and plan things out you wonder why you though it was easy!

I drafted a custom monokini pattern for Starfire's main suit, which is made out of a purple metallic spandex. I made a moulded collar and 'bra' piece using fosshape to add structure and support to the suit. The boots are made in two sections: a boot piece and legging. I wanted to be able to easily take of my shoes and rest so making the thigh high boots in two pieces was the best decision possible. The legging section has silicon elastic on the tops to hold them in place. My bracers and armband are made out of wonderflex and craft foam. I head formed the bracers to allow for maximum arm/wrist movement so they are super comfortable.

All the gems on the costume are custom cast in resin. All the purple gems have purple glitter inset in them where as the red gem is done in a marbleized red. My ‘crotch gem’ is attached to a pin backing so it is removable for storage/washing. All the purple gems are finished with purple glitter glue surrounding the gems.

Donna Troy is my favourite character to dress as. I recently re-made my Wonder Girl suit and can't wait to wear the hell out of it.

Costume Construction:
The red suit is made from a matte red milliskin spandex, I used a modified Kwik Sew K2633 pattern for the base suit. I used gold appliqué stars up the sides of the suit. My belt is made from a metallic gold pleather and the belt buckle is made from worbla. My bracers were a luck find on ASOS!

My Huntress cape really likes to flow majestically in the wind. Capes make you look at least 50% cooler
