Sage/Tessa (Hellfire Club) - X-men




Tessa is one of the less-loved characters, not being given any air time in the TV show, but one of my favourite characters from the comics. Would have technically been one of the first X-men, but she was just too hard-ass ;)

I was making her X-men outfit, but ran out of time after only having made her arm guards. Checking through her Hellfire Club outfits I found one with the similar guards and with a simple trousers/corset outfit - so with the spare time I had on the Friday before Expo I got her corset done and found out trousers/boots that I owned. Unfortunately despite there initially being a few of us at the planning stage, I was the only one who ended up wearing my costume - thus NO ONE recognised me. I mean I was pushing it anyway with my character choice, but without the well known characters with me I gave up hope and resigned to people guessing that I was from Kiss or something ;)

Makeup and tattoos were done by Nia, I tried to style my hair but failed - she has too much of it!

Will do her academy outfit at some point too (I'm not too fond of the spandex look!)
