|Time Taken :||Like half an hour|
|I loooooove Natasha/Black Widow (not Yelena/Black Widow though, she's rubbish and not a ginger), I've been dying to cosplay her for ages, but haven't had the confidence until now. I'm starting with formalwear since me + pvc catsuit = a hot, itchy mess; I might do her Assemble uniform at some stage (or wait and see what the next outfit's like) since it looks good made out of denim.|
I have 2 sets of 80's ass door knocker earrings to choose from 'cos I am stylin' like that. ;P
Pants & "Bra" (Posted 26th March 2014)
Thank the gods of Asgard that you can get cheap cotton panties & viscose bralets! The reason it's a boob-tube & not a strapless bra is that my dermographism has got to the point where underwiring is far too painful to wear as it leaves deep, itchy, red gouges in my skin & the rubbing started causing sores... so, yeah, no more "big-girl" bras for me. :[
Stockings & Garters (Posted 26th March 2014)
So, because I am an allergic little possum, I had to shell out about £25 (so, you'know OVER HALF the cost of the costume) on silk stockings instead of being able to just buy £2 ones like everyone else. I will be doing so many swanky cosplays that need stockings to justify them; also, I feel like I should go to the opera or something. The garterbelt is also silk, so again, it was about £5 instead of £2. Highly decadent! The only bit of this little lot I actually made was the cotton lace leg garter.
Underwear Ref. (Posted 26th March 2014)
So I mainly based the underwear on this image by blizart01 on dA because I am getting to the seriously sad stage of cosplaying now where I want accurate underwear for things even if nobody else can see it. I will know & I will feel awesome about it. lol. So, y'know, if I'm ever feeling particularly brave I could just take of the dress & I'd have a 2nd cosplay... yeah, uh, maybe not... haha.
