Description
Joe introduced me to this awesome costume and requested I make it for Oct Expo, how could I say no she's looks so cool.
Rather than latex which will prob have me passing out in the masquerade queue I am opting for wet look lycra, I have never worked with this before so it will be an interesting challenge.

Awesome! I may be doing Walter Kovacs for Expo, I'd love to get a Watchmen group together^^
I did think of doing the first Silk Spectre, but I always for some reason get more drawn to big manly men characters...xD

Journal

90% done (Posted 19th May 2009)

Just need to do some finishing off. The black needs some stitching to the yellow and the black stripes from the gloves to the collar need adding in. Other than that I am done!

Fit to be a superhero (Posted 25th February 2009)

After having the fabric for almost 6months I need to get cracking on this one again. I have been toning up especially for this costume (having a desk job totally sucks in that respect) as it is skin tight. I will start on the bottom half of this costume thursday night.

Patterns woohoo (Posted 10th October 2008)

There is going to be a tight deadline on this one >.< if I get it done at all might need to bring along one of my many Lara costumes just incase. Though as I have missed out on the Ball Saturday night I have all that time to sew as well ;)
I managed to find an awesome catsuit pattern online yesterday which I can adapt to give me all the bits and pieces I need to make this costume! I am so excited about doing this one. If I have a base pattern to work from I can usually produce things pretty quickly so now i just have to keep my fingerscrossed it arrives in the next few days.
I have given up my wig search momentaritly for this costume as I haven't found the one that is spot on. My hair is very similar anyway except I lack a fringe but as I am not entering this into any masquerades yet I am not too worried.
