|I saw Peej's costume and felt a lot of distaste - but I looked her up to see if there was any reasoning behind the design of her costume, and in the process, read Amanda Conner's Power Girl V2 and fell in love with her! I love Peej's attitude, her personality, the way she works and fights, and I see myself in her. I wanted to cosplay her straight away. I'm only 5"1 so I don't know if I'll be able to pull her off, but I'm going to try! I commissioned her leotard, cape and gloves from PaperCranes Cosplay and made the belt and shoulder pauldron myself with my stepmum making the bootcovers with a little help from me.|

Shoulder pauldron; http://entropyhouse.com/penwiper/costumes/helmsdeep.html (edited - I used the foam inside of a bra for the pauldron and a belt for the strap, both coated in two layers of watery PVA and one layer of plain PVA then spray-painted and spray-varnished)

BOOTCOVERS! (Posted 6th October 2013)
I FINALLY SEWED SOMETHING! USING A MACHINE!
My stepmum and I made these with her doing 99% of the work but I LOVE THEM! I think they are amazing! They are the first piece of a costume we've made from scratch (over the base shoes) and I'm really proud.
Earrings are done (Posted 8th August 2013)
In the comic, Karen's friend Nico makes her some prototype red clip-on earrings that function as a mobile phone for her company. I thought it was a cute idea and very practical and I needed some red earrings for my Wonder Woman costume so I made some out of clay and an old pair of clip-ons.
Boot buckles (Posted 10th July 2013)
Tried to make them today out of foam, but the foam I have is too flimsy for small pieces - it worked fine with the shoulder guard because it was such a big simple shape but these are too fiddly. Have ordered clay instead, hopefully that will work. Not sure how I'll attach it to the boots, but I have tiny snaps that might work if I hot glue them to the clay and sew them to the boot covers.
