Costume Information

Description
WAS A SECRET

But after loosing 2 dress sizes and finally more confident about my body shape- i'm defo putting this ahead.

I'm not a massive X men fan, but I love this outfit so much that I had to give it a go

Will be worn at Kita-con :D

Update- 19/03/11

IT IS COMPLETE!!

Going to wear at Manchester expo- but only after I re-do the boots with a more comfortable pair of base shoes so I can actually walk!

Gonna try and get a few hours of this at London on saturday :) I will ignore the pain in my left foot!!! Only problem people have to put up with is that this Phoenix is now blonde xD

DONE (Posted 19th March 2011)

First came up with the idea for Phoenix waaaay back, but I wasn't confident enough to go for it. Then one day I decided to buy the base catsuit on ebay, which was my best desion EVER.

So happy this is complete, was originally a dream cosplay, and now i've finished it xD

gloves (Posted 15th March 2011)

They failed again T__T since i'm cutting things close to kita now, i'm just gonna buy a pair on ebay for now, and attempt making them again after kita.

Boots (Posted 15th March 2011)

First of all a massive THANK YOU to the article/tutorial that Ranma 1/2 wrote on this site, without it I wouldn't have known where to start!

However, because of the fabric I used, the boots were so hard to make! After several attempts, this was the best I could do, I know that they aren't perfect, I might attempt them again after Kita.

bad times and good time (Posted 6th March 2011)

Today I did some more work on this, I spent AGES working on the gloves this morning, and they failed :'(

but then I worked on the emblem and I'm very happy with the progress so far xD

Catsuit verdict (Posted 10th February 2011)

So I put this costume up, but to be honest I wasn't 100% sure if I was going to go ahead with this since I had no idea how I would look in something so fitted. However I brought the base catsuit and today it arrived- and I nervously tried it on...

And I don't look bad at all- still in shock but I think I can actually pull this cosplay off :D- Phoenix will defo be done for Kitacon!!!

in progress (Posted 19th December 2010)

not done the main factor which will decided if i'll defiantly be doing this costume, but I found a few bits that can be used in this :)
