I love love love Magik and really want to cosplay her. Unfortunately I lack the figure to pull off her current outfit (the black two-piece based wonder), so going for her classic "New Mutants" look.

First worn at London MCM Expo May 2013, updated at Manchester and Birmingham MCMs.

Wig! (Posted 27th April 2013)

Ok, wig time! I forked out and got this beauty from coscraft http://www.coscraft.co.uk/alex/298-alex-in-very-pale-blonde.html - could have got one for half the price from ebay but I've used theirs before and it's such lovely quality. Anyway, had to cut a fringe into it, which was an interesting first time experience. Also, pretty much finished the armour, using cardboard covered in silver tape and silver spray paint, mounted on a very long silver opera glove. Now for all the hard sewing bits...

Soulsword! (Posted 15th April 2013)

So, finally getting around to doing this costume..
I went with quite a simple design for the sword, mainly because I don't have much experience in prop making. I followed this wonderful tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=yE7Gl_F1AEk which uses cardboard and a wooden dowel; I think it looks quite effective! I've also started making the armour, thankfully only on the one arm, from card/papier mache/some wonderful silvery tape. Pics soon!

Planning... (Posted 17th March 2013)

So I have the black body suit, and I think I'm going to make the yellow bit separately and attach it. Notice how I'm trying to sew as little lycra/spandex as possible - I don't own an overlocker. I'm also debating re-using the wig I used for Enchantress. It's heat resistant so I could straighten it then style the fringe. Also, I don't know whether to make a plain Soulsword, or add the blue magicky energy to it...
