|I've REALLY gotta stop doing this!! But I seriously love the Enchantress in the animated series Earth's mightiest heroes. |
I dont really go for villains, but the bitchyness of Enchantress makes me love her and hate her all at the same time! I also want to really start making comic based cosplay as I really love comics so much! ^___^!
Also, her outfit should be pretty easy to make, only the headgear will prove difficult for me I think. But I like challenges! Also it makes a change for me to do a villain!
I have NO idea when I'll do Enchantress, but I wanna make her so she's a costume I have on stand by if I ever ned a simple but good cosplay to wear for anything. ^___^
UPDATE: Will wear her to the Avengers premier if there is one and maybe LFCC next year!

bodice and skirt fabric (Posted 14th October 2011)
So I was thinking today of fabrics, and it occured to me that I have 1metre and a half of green lycra left after making my Ariel tail, and its the perfect shade of green for Enchantress' bodice and skirt!!!
So I will be using that to make her bodice at least! I might even invest paying out for boning and bone the bodice too, but I'm not sure as I've never done that before lol. I might also use some clear straps to hold up the bodice or the rubbery stuff you get on hold up stockings to hold the bodice up. ^_^
Being the fabric it is, it might not even boning.. hmm decisions decisions lol
Arm warmers/skirt panels (Posted 14th October 2011)
So after looking really closely at the reference pictures AND watching the show religiously at 10am every week day (lol) I have decided I will go for a metallic lycra fabric for her arm warmer thingies. Also looking at the ref pic, it looks as if the over lay skirt panels on her skirt are of the same shade of green as her arm warmers so I will use the same fabric to make the panels on the skirt, so they shine like hers seem to do.
For the arm warmers to create the line detailing that are on her arm warmers I'm thinking of hand stitching with very fine lime green thread the 'stripes' on them, but not entirely sure. It will create a pinstripe effect but not sure if it will work for hers or not.
How to make this (Posted 6th October 2011)
So whilst I've been debating whether or not to put tis costume up, I was thinking how would I do this costume. When I figured it out for a couple of parts, I decided it has to be done lol.
I have a pair of wet look leggings that I will use (once replaced) for her leggings and then I will paint on the circle design down the front of the leggings. I have a pair of knee high skin tight stretchy heeled boots also in my cupboard that I will use for Enchantress, and like the leggings I will paint the green stripe down them to the toe.
For the top I will probably buy a green bodice, or buy any colour one then get green stretchy fabric and use the fabric to cover the base bodice. For the skirt? I have no idea lol!
I think for her headgear I will commission someone who knows what they're doing to do it for me! I will get a shorter length wig than my Rapunzel one for Enchantress, as I think my rapunzel wig is a great colour for Enchantress.
