Power Girl

Condition: Retired

1st November 2010: 1st November 2010: *.:COSTUME SUMMARY:.*
~ Power Girl from DC Comics -- A Mix of Versions ~
Probably the costume I used to be most 'known for' (for better or for worse)!
~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~
* Parts I Made:
- The Gloves -- My first attempt and they came out pretty well considering I didn't have a pattern. They're just blue lyrca.
- The Belt & Cape -- Red T-Shirt fabric cut into basic shapes! The cape was pleated around the top edge and attached to some chunky gold curtain cord. The 'pauldron' was a last minute made from craft foam. Our first attempt was made from Polymorph but the paint didn't dry in time so we couldn't use it!

* Parts I Modified:
- The Bodysuit -- It's just a dancers' leotard! I ironed interfacing around the chest and formed the 'hole' by cutting out an 'X' and folding it into a rounded shape.
- The Boots -- We found cute saggy boots and they were spray painted blue with rubber paint. It wasn't great but it worked at the time!

* Parts I Bought and wore as-is:
- None

16th July 2010: DONE! 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

6th July 2010: Update 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

18th June 2010: Braiding 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!

16th June 2010: Wig? 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

27th May 2010: Cape :D 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

4th May 2010: Leoard 2!! 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

28th April 2010: Leotard! 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

hay, sorry to spam and I dunno if you're planning on doing this costume (which is epic btw!!!) to May expo but there's a Batman/DC meet up on Saturday and it'd be awesome if you could come??
if you know anyone else that might be going that'd be interested please direct them to the forum post. Thanks!
