Cosplayer Kurisuchie > Costume of Clea from Dr. Strange
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I got really picky with the color scheme of this costume because I'm not a huge fan of pink or similar. I chose to do the purple-ish version that there's one photo of, I honestly don't know if it shows up in the comics as I have yet to find one with it yet. I liked it a ton since it reflected her older costume's color set so I went with it. I got super lucky with the circular fabric back in Jan 2012 after searching online and in stores for a couple of weeks, I finally found an LA seller who had some left in stock. Saved that and just matched everything else I bought to it. I think my favorite fabric ended up being what I used for the core of the suit. I love how it changes colors with the light, like magic!
- Personal Thoughts:
- Super fun and easy to wear costume. A lot of the older crowd recognized me at Wondercon which was awesome! Although, since most people know only Dr. Strange I would dodge past Wren getting his picture taken and sneak over to the comic booths to buy goodies <3 yay for easier maneuverability~
Awesome moment for Wren in his Dr. Strange costume: He was posing for photos and out of no-where STAN LEE walks up and asks to take a photo with him!!! We currently have a copy of that photo framed!!! =D
- Styling Notes
- Really liked this wig as a base but it looked a bit awkward on me in full curly mode, so I toned it down as much as I could since her hair ranges from wavy to curly anyway.
