Welcome to the New Age - New 52 Powergirl by etaru Welcome to the New Age - New 52 Powergirl by etaru
Wow sorry for the lack of updates!! I promise I'll be more diligent, this summer has been hectic and a half!

So I debuted a new costume at San Diego Comic Con - Powergirl from DC Comics New 52, as she appears in the cameo in the new Supergirl series and receives a new outfit for a short time, I'm really happy with the outcome!

Kara has been on my to-do list for...years now, but I always somehow hesitated to make her, be it the design (it's more intimidating craftsmanship than you'd expect!) or the event, but SDCC felt like the right place, and when I saw her new 52 re-design with the battle armor, it screamed to be made. Functionality with a twist on a classic design, who doesn't love that! Plus, all the seams and lines on the new leotard are a keen breakaway from PG's vertical seams with a flattering design in mind.
Because I anticipated doing a lot of movement for all the action poses that generally come with a comic character, I used a sports performance spandex and lined it in itself, patterning the suit myself. In the future I'll probably raise the seam lines to be more prominent in photos, but I promise they're there! lol The armor was inspired by *RuffleButtCosplay 's tutorial for fabric covered foam armor, and patterned the plates to fit with each other perfectly, but also have that bit of space to be flexible and move with me.Turns out ponte is a great, thick stretch fabric for this and came in the right shade of blue! I also kept fabric choices in mind for the cape, using a bright raylon so it could look natural in its movement for posing and in the wind, since comic characters' loose fabrics always look so light and airy, easily swept up.
I simply could not be happy with any wig I styled for this outfit, so I ended up dyeing my own hair a few shades lighter for it because it had the right cut. In my mind, it's still too dark for PG, but I'll find a suitable wig the next time its worn.

Great action pose! I like the expression, it's how I could see that character looking before she opens a can of Whoop-A$$

hey i always guess at natural color 1st thing you learn about cosplayers is they always in a wig or something so seeing ANYONES natural is random luck.

What is your actual hair color?

Gorgerous job!! You are so amazing (*3*) Love how you picked the design with the open belt, and those shoes it looks amazing! I'm also in the middle of a powergirl costume, but my sweater-puppies aren't as accurate as yours XD You rock <3

Thank you so much! I'm not a huge fan of her hip sitting belt, so the new design with the gold waist piece really felt more flattering (and really, my hips don't need any extra attention lol). It's all just a good pushup bra, and her chest feels slightly more proportional and not so over the top in the new 52~
