Nice One!  :thumbsup:

But I think if you were going to be flying high in the sky with flames soaring out of your lower back; you'd want better protection for your legs than nylons!  :no:

Wonderful cosplay, Riddle!  :)  I remember seeing it on Heroes of Cosplay, and I loved it!  If my memory serves me correct, you even made the buttons, too, right?
Riddle1's avatar
yep!
basically took a mold of a drawer pull, and then bought some plain buttons and as I was casting the drawer pull I would insert the button with just the back piece sticking out, this way it had the look of the drawer pull BUT the backing of a button so I could sew it on :)

uh yeah way to be accurate to canon story line done b Darwyn cooke for the IDW rocketeer short stories.

Slut shame harder next time, bro. Or at least know the reference material better.

And big deal if it wasn't canon obviously I put a lot of my own time and my own money into creating this costume because I care about it, its not something that is hacked out.

Awesome costume as always

Though I don't think having bare legs would work with a functional rocket :D
