New costume from Sakuracon~ Ms Marvel from Avengers, based on the Kotobukiya figure by Shunya Yamashita.
I had matte vinyl spandex that wouldn't have worked for Magik and needed to make use of it, so Ms Marvel came to mind because I've wanted to make her for a while anyway. Whole costume was patterned by me, bodysuit was given french princess seams and the 4 way stretch lightning bolt was reverse-applique'd, sash is equestrian lycra. I wanted to avoid using heels for the boot covers because she wears flats in the reference art, but flats rarely look good with a leotard (at least on me) so I met it halfway using wedge booties.
I've never had more emotional frustration with a costume than this, probably because I only had 3 evenings to finish it. I have plans to remake or fixing half the costume before it's worn again... I love Carol Danvers and would be heartbroken to not do my very best to give her justice!
** I had a few questions at con about my lipstick - it's a red lipstain from Maybelline with a topcoat of LimeCrime's Candy Apple Carousel Gloss [link]
