Oh, this will look so cute! I might have to pull out Black Canary again whenever you do this!

:) Hehe Well the plan is to roll it out in February at London Super Comic Con and again in Expo in October (Sad, but true, we've actually got a schedule of where we're going and what she's wearing for next year already...)

Many thanks!

No problem any idea of when it'll be done ? I'd love to see it in person :-)

Starbucks dad posted on 6 January, 2013 - 22:57
:) Most kind. Hoping to have ready for the end of this month (although we're going to re-make the cape and we still have to successfully make the t-shirt). First run out will be London Super Comiccon but she'll be using it a couple of times this year (Hit Girl is looking quite pricey so although we're still making it, it's going to preclude making a lot of costumes this year)so there's a fair chance you should see it live.

No problem c: Good luck with them all. I'm sure the results will be most wonderful :D

This looks great so far. :-) Misfit is such a fun character, I'm sure she'll have a great time dressing as her.

Thanks. Aye, somehow she seems to be relate to a noisey troublesome teen who doesn't like chores. :)

I´m not really into comics, and don´t know the character but she looks pretty nice and just like the ref

Hair test

Some wash in/wash out and it looks not too bad.

17th February 2013

Just the hair to go

We've permission from her school to go ginge!

13th January 2013

Snippity snip

Cutting both t shirts the same and then sewing the right bits together...

13th January 2013

T shirts arrived!

Just need a cunning plan to merge them together....

6th January 2013


Cape looks far too short. Drat

6th January 2013

Made a belt 2!

It works! Just need to paint it up.

6th January 2013

Made a belt!

Ok, so we just wrapped some leatherette around itself and then added a buckle, but we're quite pleased

Utility belt 2

Utility belt 1

Sketching out the template and the all important task of making sure she can get her sweeties in it!

1st January 2013

So far

Gloves and boots bought in the sale (hurrah), skirt sort of done. Cape also (might need some twiddling to get to sit right). We've done a dry run of the mask but need to adjust the model slightly also we need the right colour (blue?). Two T-shirts on the way (one blue, one black) which we plan to cut up and sew back together to get the tshirt design right. Then it's just the the utility belt...

1st January 2013

Cutting down

Size minus 20 on the way..

1st January 2013


Pair of size 8's in the sale to be cut down to size something or other. Very small anyway....

1st January 2013


Um, adding the lining.

1st January 2013


Sewing in

1st January 2013


Glueing the hems prior to sewing

1st January 2013

Under orders

El's asked me to put as many pictures of her making this one up as I can. (I think she worries that people don't thinks she makes most of her own costumes) so here we go. First cut....

1st January 2013


Material arrived....

11th November 2012

Whys and whatnot

With El being a fan of the old school Birds of Prey this seemed to be a natural for her. The big plus for us is that it's almost a "hit girl lite" and will give us the chance to practice making a cloak and utility belt.
