27th August 2013: Update Ayacon has been and gone and really happy I got to wear my Black Widow cosplay. I was so nervous wearing this but received lovely comments on how good it look and some comments really made my day! Before the con I thought I would be boiling in this cosplay, ended up being freezing some of the time to the point wear my Hawkeye gave me his jacket for a little bit XD Overall I had fun wearing this and meeting all the other Avengers cosplayers.
So! I plan to rewear this cosplay at Kitacon! Hoping to improve in some elements to this cosplay and try to lose more weight. I may try to get another photoshoot done before then.
2nd August 2013: Guns Finally bought the guns from Poundland and spray painted them. Apart from tidying up, this cosplay is pretty much finished.
1st August 2013: Outfit so far Quick preview of the cosplay (missing the widow's bites as I left them in the garage.) Just need to tidy up and get the guns!
30th July 2013: Patches finished I ended up using fabric paint to make them. The most easy way but it kinda works. I was losing patient when I tried sewing them and it wasn't looking good, tried fabric cut outs and still looked a mess, so fabric paint it was. I can always improve on it later, but for now it can work.
The patches are now sewn onto the suit, only the guns left to do and this cosplay will be finished!
17th July 2013: 29 days to go I started to panic when I found out it's not long til Aya so forced myself into town after work and got what I needed. So got a bullet belt for the widow's bites, matte spray paint, fingerless gloves and boots.
I went with ankle boots instead as the knee high ones are normally hard to find. They are either too expensive, outside the country, not in my size or style I need, so the ankle boots will do for now.
8th July 2013: So far <<< Makeup and wig test
The utility belt and thigh holsters have arrived,
Still to get:
Bullet belt for the widow's bites and spray paint them
Make the patches and add them to the suit
Get glock guns
The boots I'm having the most trouble to find. They are either too expensive, not the style I want etc. I have two plans for them at the moment, I either get ankle boots with the heel height I want or use my knee high boots with a very low heel.
If I do get the ankle boots I can also get knee high ones once winter comes round.
26th June 2013: Catsuit Look what arrived! And in less than 2 weeks too!
The sizing is perfect apart from the shoulders which I need to fight into annoyingly enough, but hoping baby powder will help out. It's kinda comfy but the longest I may wear it is 4 hours or so maybe.
Need to work on my hips ><
29th April 2013: Belt progress Made a start and made the the Widow's symbol for the belt. Made from craft foam and painted.
