I’ve had a lot of questions about my Squirrel Girl cosplay. Firstly, I’m super glad people like it! It’s funny, cause I wasn’t sure what the reception would be. I was prepared for this costume to be one-and-done, and now I’m actually planning for a legit photoshoot. I hope it encourages you to go out and pick up the book, cause it’s well worth supporting.

Secondly, if you’d like to learn more about this costume, I did an interview with the lovely FergyK as Lois Lane for Nerd Caliber at Massive Comic Con this past weekend. I didn’t say in the video, but the leggings are made from stretch velvet, the white bits on the jacket are faux suede, and the teeth are wonderflex. Also, the acorn earrings I sculpted from fimo clay.

I plan on posting pictures of the patterns I made soon! :)

Phantom Victorian Evening Wear Ensemble - [full-size image] - My first attempt at true menswear! This ensemble is based on a Victorian tailsuit in ‘The Phantom of the Opera’. The tailcoat features a woven poly suiting with Bemberg lining and glass button details. The waistcoat is constructed from a lustrous ribbed fabric and silk dupioni. Satin ribbon detailing adorn the lapels and ornate buttons are used in the front closure. The trousers have a high waistline and velvet tuxedo stripes. Lastly, the [faux] bow tie was made from striped cotton shirting, cut on the bias and crisply pleated. [SPOTLIGHT: read about the process and see progress photos here!]
