About this Costume
- Construction Details:
There are a lot of inaccuracies with the costume since I didn't originally plan to wear it to a con such as fabric. The original is supposed to be made out of latex while mine is PVC. I added shorts to my outfit because I didn't feel comfortable showing that much leg and when I made it shorter it was very uncomfortable to sit in. Sine the outfit was originally supposed to be for the movie premier, I decided comfort was more important than accuracy. My hair is black and not brown with awkward bangs because I chose not to get a wig and just use my own hair with some extensions I already had. The boots aren't boots at all, they are 4" heels with boot covers. There is a corset built in to the outfit and considering I had no idea what I was doing with just the PVC and bodysuit I thought it would be best to not throw something else to the mix. Trust me, the list of inaccuracies goes on and on...
- Personal Thoughts:
- So this outfit was horrible to make. 2-way stretch PVC does not seem to like me, plus it was my first time ever to work with that type of fabric and with making a body suit. I guess it was a little ballsy for me to jump right into making it considering I had no idea what I was doing and only had one week to start and finish it. XD I originally was only going to wear it for the midnight premier but decided to rush and finish it for Wonder Con and I was so happy I did because amazing things happened at Wonder Con that make me smile! XD
