Description
I wanted to cosplay an X-Men character to go with sjbonnar's Beast but didn't have the time to make Shadowcat's uniform so throwing this together for now. I don't think it's very recognisable but it'll be comfy at least.


"Kitty Pryde is a generally upbeat and cheerful mutant girl who is a student at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. She had the ability to phase though solid objects and her powers first manifested when she was fifteen. Kitty is a loyal friend, always willing to help others in need, and is a straight A student. However, she also has some naive tendencies, due to having lived a sheltered life before joining the X-Men."

~Please see my journals for more details on the construction of this costume as well as progress photos~



All of the clothing was bought. The cropped jeans, cardigan and sandals were modified.

The wig was bought from Coscraft

I bought the backpack from Peacocks and made some alterations.

The necklace was handmade.

I first wore this costume to London Super Comic Con 2015 and I was pleased that several people recognised it as I wasn't expecting that to be honest. Overall however I wasn't very comfortable whilst wearing it, the wig was hurting/itching, the shoes kept breaking and I was self-conscious about my weight. I shall be rewearing this once I have lost some weight and sorted out the problems with the shoes. The wig really needs some more work done to it as well.
