About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- 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. The next time it was worn using a lacefront from Arda Wigs which are my favorite, and silicone mask provided by Bandersnatch Studios.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I've never had more emotional frustration with a costume than this, probably because I only had 3 evenings to finish it. I'm thankful I had time to go back and fix parts of it before a rewear, and Bandersnatch Studios were incredible to provide me with prototypes of their new silicone mask! It seriously fits like a glove and I couldn't be happier with the quality, it pays to find local talent.
- Wig Review
- Gorgeous lace front that's easy to style into a natural part, very thick but not overtly heavy.
