Update (Posted 27th August 2013)
Ayacon has been and gone and really happy I got to wear my Black Widow cosplay. I was so nervous wearing this but received lovely comments on how good it look and some comments really made my day! Before the con I thought I would be boiling in this cosplay, ended up being freezing some of the time to the point wear my Hawkeye gave me his jacket for a little bit XD Overall I had fun wearing this and meeting all the other Avengers cosplayers.
So! I plan to rewear this cosplay at Kitacon! Hoping to improve in some elements to this cosplay and try to lose more weight. I may try to get another photoshoot done before then.
Guns (Posted 2nd August 2013)
Finally bought the guns from Poundland and spray painted them. Apart from tidying up, this cosplay is pretty much finished.
Outfit so far (Posted 1st August 2013)
Quick preview of the cosplay (missing the widow's bites as I left them in the garage.) Just need to tidy up and get the guns!
Patches finished (Posted 30th July 2013)
I ended up using fabric paint to make them. The most easy way but it kinda works. I was losing patient when I tried sewing them and it wasn't looking good, tried fabric cut outs and still looked a mess, so fabric paint it was. I can always improve on it later, but for now it can work.
The patches are now sewn onto the suit, only the guns left to do and this cosplay will be finished!
29 days to go (Posted 17th July 2013)
I started to panic when I found out it's not long til Aya so forced myself into town after work and got what I needed. So got a bullet belt for the widow's bites, matte spray paint, fingerless gloves and boots.
So far (Posted 8th July 2013)
<<< Makeup and wig test
The utility belt and thigh holsters have arrived,
Still to get:
The boots I'm having the most trouble to find. They are either too expensive, not the style I want etc. I have two plans for them at the moment, I either get ankle boots with the heel height I want or use my knee high boots with a very low heel.

Look what arrived! And in less than 2 weeks too!
