Cosplayer Devon > Costume of Black Canary from DC Comics
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The pleather spandex at my local shop was a bit thin, so I flat-lined it with a thicker black spandex for comfort and bulk. The collar had some thicker spandex put in to make it sturdier, and hand stitched to the neckline seam allowance. The leg and arm holes were finished with an overlock stitch, rolled inward, and fastened down with a small zig-zag stitch done with a walking foot. I screwed up the front a bit at the bottom of the zipper, but I can go back and fix that later.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is actually my first time working with spandex, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was nowhere near as difficult as I had anticipated. This was one of my fastest costumes to date.
- Styling Notes
- Razored the bangs a bit shorter.
- Wig Review
- Thick, good fibers, tangle resistant.
