Costume made and modeled by: :iconfirelilycosplay:

I was looking at images of the new "Before Watchmen" comics and saw the most amazing illustration by Jim Lee of Laurie Jespeczyk in her new Silk Spectre outfit. I fell in love with the design and knew I had to make it. Plus, the new comics are fantastic and really paint the picture of a young Laurie Jupiter coming into her own as Silk Spectre, coming of age from a young and almost naive teenager (very reminiscent of Kara Zor-El as Supergirl) to a strong and capable young superhero.

The costume is gold milliskin spandex with black wet-look spandex detailing. The suit is lined in nude spandex lining fabric. The belt and boots are metallic black spandex, and the buckle is craft foam. I made the earrings from lacquered cardboard, and the wig is from my Nadie costume (I just pulled it into a ponytail).

This photo was taken at DragonCon 2013 in the Marriott!  I absolutely love the lightbox set up using the 10th floor windows :)
