Description
--- STORE BOUGHT/ MODDED---

I love Power Girl, I really do!
It's not the most comfortable outfit, due to my body shape, but I'm gonna have a lot of fun wearing it, and the group promises to be a lot of fun, too :3

I got it all finisished, the main part of it is a body suit I bought off eBay, then modified (with Bambi's help!) the chest hole into it.
Then I bought some brown boots and spray painted them blue!

The belt and the cape are made of the same red fabric, it's very soft and semi stretchy, but it does the job! I've attached the cape onto the costume by actually sewing it onto her gold cord, but also using a little stick-on velcro for support.
The wig was Luke's Link wig which I poached :D
And finally, the gloves were made very last minute the night before we left for London! Adam had some spare blue Lycra, so I cut around my hands, threw it at my sewing machine with absolutely no clue, and somehow, this worked XD So I'm very happy about it!
Oh, and the pauldron thingy, it's just craft foam sprayed gold, lol :)

DONE! (Posted 16th July 2010)

Well, it's all done! Photo's will follow on Saturday at LFCC, but I need to give Huge thanks to RyukRedApples, Bambi., Fishyfins and Horrorpopsicle for all of thier help!~~

I love you all :3
I'm so happy about all of it being done, I'm floating on air XD

Update (Posted 6th July 2010)

Well, the boots are done :3 Luke got me some brown boots and sprayed them blue, so that isn't a worry. The worry is getting GLOVES in time since I have no monies...

Also, I'm still too nervous to cut that boob hole out of the leotard incase it goes wrong. /sigh/

I might just do it tonight and live with it :S

Braiding (Posted 17th June 2010)

Got some lovely thick curtain ties today for using to tie back my cape. I already hade some braid for this but I saw these curtain ties and realized they're a lot thicker, so I prefer them!

Wig? (Posted 16th June 2010)

I've totally stolen Luke's Link wig for this costume, so I'm one (albeit Tiny) step closer to completion! Which is good cos I'm leaving it rather... late.. :S

Cape :D (Posted 27th May 2010)

I've started making my cape! It's made of heavy T-Shirt fabric, so it's nice and soft but it still hangs right. I'm using simple gold braiding to attach it to myself, and I've already hand stitched in a hem. Once I decide whether or not to line it, I'll run it through the machine :P

Leoard 2!! (Posted 4th May 2010)

It arrived!!! I'm so ecstatic, I really am :) But I'm also worried that when I cut the hole in it, it'll ruin it... *Panic panic panic*
It's a little see through, so I'm gonna invest in a nude bodystocking type thing, but I'll try and have progress pics up by tommorrow :D

Leotard! (Posted 27th April 2010)

Well, we went to a dance shop today to find my leotard! Theyhad a perfect high-collared one with long sleeves, but it was in black! It would have been keyhole backed, too, but that isn't oo much of a problem because of the cape. We asked about white and apparently because of the colour I'd need an expensive double front panel to stop it being see through, so I am sad ;__;.

Alas, we turned to eBay, and now I'm ordering a spot on leotard that has a bra-like clasp on the crotch, so no awkward ness with the cape, and it's a quarter of the price I would have had to pay!! :O So that's superrrr~
I've also found a nude body suit thing to weae underneath to help with the see-through-ness, so all is off to a good start :3
