Lady Nightwing Cosplay / Dick Grayson or should I say Dixie Grayson > (DC) Batman Arkham City Version Photography by Long Vo Armor: Aluminum and Carbon Fiber/ Bodysuit: Polyurethane stretch fabric / fake leather /foam & latex
More details on how I made this cosplay soon in my blog post for NYCC!
I remember when the Ame Comi line of DC figures came out I adored them all! I especially loved the first version of Catwoman they had, but wasn't able to cosplay it. However, when the second version came out, I fell in love! I collected back issues of Catwoman when Jim Balent was the artist and appreciated that the Ame Comi artist used the original color purple in the figure.
Catwoman Costume: Top down....The wig is a pixie cut one from a previous cosplay. I created the blue clip in weft myself to resemble the figurine. The cap was drafted from a tutorial I found on the Red Headed Seamstresses website ([link]). The bodysuit was made with Stretch and Sew pattern f845 from metallic styled stretch fabric I ordered online. I free drafted the belts and stitched them on. The zipper had the cloth sides trimmed off and was stitched on-it's non functional. The neck has snaps on the back that allow me in/out of the costume. The gloves were from Vogue Pattern 7949-adjust accordingly, it's for people with small twig arms! The boots were made from Sarcasm-hime's tutorial at: ([link]) I glued on a silver strip on the boot to resemble the zipper....that was just a tad too complex for me to do!
I love how close to the figure I got! Although I had limited time, it came together quickly and rekindled my love for cosplay! If Ame Comi continues to make these beautiful figurines, I may have to do more of their cosplays!
Not a very creative title I know, I just had these taken today and just got back from spending the night at my sister's house so I'm pretty headachey, and tired.
My mother is manager of a string of assisted living facilities so she allowed me to use her main building that was shut down for the weekend for a quick photo shoot. A big thanks to her for that. My twin sis was the one that took the pictures.
I'm no craftsman, but I made do by a very non-complicated process of using superglue, white fabric pain marker, pvc leather, thimbles, screws, sewing needles and silver wire at my disposal. [I still need to buy the boots]. The mask itself was purchased from a seller on Amazon.
That's about all I've got. ._. I'll post what I can from the photos that were taken that I deem DA worthy.
It's strange cosplaying something so sultry. I dunno. ._.
