Cosplayer Momo Kurumi > Costume of Black Cat from Spider-man
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- On some of the construction details: for the suit I created my own body suit pattern and sewed it in a heavyweight two-way stretch material. The material is also not all that stretchy so I had to basically treat it as if it had none, and added various style lines for a better fit. The front and back princess seams feature piping, as well as the back yoke and bikini line. The zipper is a sparkle rhinestone zipper that installed "floating" for my first time ever, meaning there is no seam below it. I love the way it looks, I'm glad I figured it out!
As for the accessories... the zipper pull is a sparkle belt buckle that I ripped the middle prong off of, and the collar is the same fabric as the suit, with a silver "tag" sewn on, and Swarovskis added on like studs, to match my glamorous zipper. ;P The mask is a craft mask from a hobby store covered in the same fabric.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Made this for two upcoming comic conventions: Indiana ComicCon and C2E2! I already had the wig, fabric, material to make the mask and collar, as well as the shoes, so I figured it'd be a good easy project to pull together in a short notice!
The costume took about a week, not counting the fur parts and gloves which I still need to add. I would've done it by now, even, but school work first. ;P
- Styling Notes
- All I did was spray it with some detangler to soften it and heat set the bangs to the side!
- Wig Review
- Love this style, maybe I could also use it for when I get around to doing Storm from X-Men Evolution! Love characters with white hair
