"Once upon a time in midwinter, when the snowflakes were falling like feathers from heaven, a queen sat sewing at her window, which had a frame of black ebony wood. As she sewed she looked up at the snow and pricked her finger with her needle. Three drops of blood fell into the snow. The red on the white looked so beautiful that she thought to herself, "If only I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as the wood in this frame." " -A Grimm Fairy-tale.
...Personaly, i believe the purity of the woman ended with her pallid complection. "...He took out his hunting knife and was about to stab it into her innocent heart when she began to cry..."Manipulative wench!And not all that wise..."The poor child was now all alone in the great forest, and she was so afraid that she just looked at all the leaves on the trees and did not know what to do. Then she began to run." And perhaps a bit presumptious and niave?"She ran as far as her feet could carry her, and just as evening was about to fall she saw a little house and went inside in order to rest. "To see a random house,in the woods, after running from a murderer, and thinks "oh but a goodidea.let me break into a strangers home : after all there arent evil people in the world who may not take it kindly to find a defencless woman-child liotering around thier home" Pfh!
Oh and easily her worst offence yet! A woman of age gone era who cannot stand the loving embrace of a properly laced bodice..BODICE for goodness sake woman it wasnt even a corset.*sigh* "Good wares, beautiful wares," she answered. "Bodice laces in all colors." And she took out one that was braided from colorful silk. "Would you like this one?"
"I can let that honest woman in," thought Snow-White, then unbolted the door and bought the pretty bodice lace.
"Child," said the old woman, "how you look! Come, let me lace you up properly."
The unsuspecting Snow-White stood before her and let her do up the new lace, but the old woman pulled so quickly and so hard that Snow-White could not breathe..."
"Not long afterward, in the evening time, the seven dwarfs came home. How terrified they were when they saw their dear Snow-White lying on the ground, not moving at all, as though she were dead."

I was asked by to be the Power Girl to her Supergirl and I thought - why not? Kara is a cool, tough character who doesn't hold punches, and her classic costume is actually very well designed for the 70's! I collected the materials over the summer and finally found time and an excuse to make the costume for New Orleans Comic Con. Can't wait to do a photoshoot with Jenni as Supergirl soon! <3
New photo by !!! We shot at Boston Comic Con at sunset! I absolutely love this image, it really evokes the feel of a comic book cover, and shows Kara's intensity and determination. The movement in the photo coupled with the golden hour back light and skyline in the background makes this my new favorite photo of this costume.

I think there is a way to approach even a simple costume such as Power Girl with thought and attention to detail. Simplistic costumes do not give you as many chances to mess up, and sewing mishaps can be pretty apparent. The craftsmanship on simple costumes has to be even more clean and precise. I'm pretty happy with how Power Girl turned out, mainly because of my fabric choices. I used the thickest jumbo spandex you can get for the bodysuit, a heavy duty canvas-like fabric for the cape, and leather for the gloves and boots. It's always recommended to mix different fabric types for added texture on a costume, to give it more dimension.
