About this Costume
Construction Details:
Polaris was a very simple costume to make and I started it on the Tuesday afternoon before ACE, and finished it up around 5am on Thursday morning. Basically, 2 days. It would have only taken 1 day if I hadn't decided to make the bodysuit structured, lined and insert all those seams and lines. The materials were 4-way stretch metallic spandex (to match the look of this statue), wonderflex for the headpiece, gauntlets & anklets, and crepe back satin for the cape. I kind of took my favorite elements of various Polaris outfits and put them together.
Personal Thoughts:
I'll admit, the reason I chose this costume is because I had a great wig for it laying around. Originally used for my Sea Nymph mermaid costume, this green/teal gradient wig was a good choice for Polaris. I definitely appreciate her character's heritage, numerous struggles and relationship with Havok, and I like how the color green looks against my skin tone. Not sure why I'm drawn to cosplay all of Magneto's daughters lol (Wanda, Lorna...), I guess I secretly wished he was my daddy? haha

Last push to make the costume was my Guest appearance at Albuquerque Comic Expo, for which I wanted to debut a new cosplay.
