Another coloring over my buddy s fantastic inks. I really liked this image he did of the Silver Banshee and thought this would be a good opportunity to try out a little different color combination than I might usually use. Here she's a little more blue than silver, but I kind of like it on her. Colored using Corel Painter X.
RAWR. Black Lantern Wonder Woman, worn at Dragon*Con 2010 (also see Stabitha's Red Lantern Mera!) I actually used real metal for the shield, belt, bracers and crown--not easy, mind you. I made everything except for the wig and boots (but I made the greaves.) The axe lights up, btw.
YAY! My first Comic cosplay! I really like Donna Troy, even though she has suffered the origin story rewrite more than most, she is still a really badass character, even if she's not super well known. I plan on doing many of her other versions, but wanted to stick with something classic first. It was an easy suit to make out of spandex from a pattern I drafted. The gold stars are heat transfer vinyl and the belt is made of craft foam and stretch vinyl. The bracelets are literally just card-stock paper, lol! I really wanted it to look chrome but didn't want the expense. It actually worked! My wig is from Epic cosplay wigs of course.
During the shoot on t he rooftop we were joking that we should photoshop all the signs into DCU related advertisements... it was to hilarious not to do.
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.
Superman with some of his rogues, Bizarro, Silver Banshee, and Parasite. I only like my Parasite on this. I really don't like how the overall piece turned out, it seems very random and not well executed. And Superman's face... guuuuhh....
