About a week ago, I got three yards of fabric in the wrong shade of blue along with more gold satin than anyone could ever use. Instead of trying to return it, I improvised, and made this little dress inspired by Captain Marvel’s gorgeous new uniform.
And my Mad Max/Wonder Woman mash up is done. I’ve included a few full-body progress pics of the costume as well as my original design art, so you can see what I changed on the costume and what the final tattoos will look like. I also wrapped up the custom steering wheel I did, complete with a Batman skull. How it got there, the world may never know.
Can’t wait for San Japan this weekend!
Keep an eye on my cosplay Tumblr and Facebook for work in progress vlogs. ♥ ♥ ♥
Free Comic Book Day is next weekend, as well as the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and a couple weeks ago I had an MJ shoot and realized the comic I used as a prop had the FCBD logo on it (I believe it’s a book from last year). I love happy coincidences!
You can’t stop crime. That’s what you never understood. I’m controlling it. You wanna rule them by fear, but what do you do with the ones who aren’t afraid? I’m doing what you won’t, I’m taking them out.
You don’t get heaven or hell. Do you know the only reward you get for being Batman? You get to be Batman.”
I created a Femme Batman cosplay for a Femme Justice League group in May of 2014 and it’s been one of my favorite costumes… I’m a huge Bat-nut, so it was really awesome to get to be The Batman for a day. Batman : The Animated Series is what got me into comics, what helped me meet my best friend, and the characters in that universe have given me such strength in my personal life.
And, unfortunately, I’ve decided to put it up for sale. I have a lot of good memories with this costume, but it’s time for it to find a new home. If you’re interested, I’m listing parts of the suit and armor here and the cowl here.
The most important thing in life is to be yourself…unless you can be Batman. Always be Batman
