Hello! I'm making a justice league war wonder woman costume. But I haven't the slightest idea on how to make the bottoms of it. Would you have any advice? Thanks a ton <3.
Cata: I found a cosplayer who made this outfit and they mentioned they altered a leotard.
If you’re making things from scratch, here are some commercial patterns.
And some general bodysuit tutorials:
Also check out the Dangerous Ladies’ and their help section on spandex (ctrl-F or scroll down):
For the metal belt bit, you can either make it as a separate thing that goes around your waist (EVA foam and/or worbla would be good for this) or as an applique piece. Ultimately, it depends on the look you want. If you want all the armor bits to match, pieces that attach on separately might be the best.
And as always, fellow cosplayers with more experience sewing with spandex/bodysuits/superhero outfits/etc., please chime in!
