Costume Information

Cost : £50
Time Taken : On and off over a couple of months

I have never really read comics, but I loved the Avengers film; especially the character Black Widow. I wanted to cosplay her but I didn't think much of the movie costume and so I found the - I'm guessing - original Marvel version which I feel will be more fun to make and wear. I'm hoping to have this done for Halloween as my friends want to have an Avengers theme to the party =]
Looking forward to this; it feels like it's been a while since I made anything or even wore my costumes.

UPDATE: 25/02/2013

So quite spontaneously I decided to take BW to LSCC. I was very happy with the response I received, but I was just so glad to be back within the cosplay community as it has been well over a year since my last event. Good times ^^

Boot-covers done! (Posted 12th September 2012)

As much as I'd love to own a pair of PVC boots, my funds just won't allow it. After finding a beautiful cheap pair of heels in Primark, I made my own using left over lycra from the catsuits. It's my first time making boot-covers and I think I did ok. Definitely need a few touch ups before I can really strut my stuff though.

Catsuit Finished!! (Posted 12th September 2012)

Although there are a few faults, I'm really happy with the outcome. I can't wait for the whole costume to be finished now. I think if I make a catsuit again, I will go for the more 'one-piece' styled pattern; I am definitely a lot more confident.

It Begins (Posted 21st July 2012)

Belt was made first using craft foam and leather. I may remake it as my circles are not entirely circular XD
I have decided to go for Gymnast catsuit design other than the original one piece because I am not entirely confident in my pattern-making skills. Other than the scrunched-up crotch, I am fairly happy. Just need to add on the legs and arms ^^
