Detective Comics: The Spoiler II by Aigue-Marine Detective Comics: The Spoiler II by Aigue-Marine
Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentleman!
How are you? I hope you are all doing well!
I just came back from a business trip to Switzerland. Gosh, Iím still tired. I definitely need a day off. I really like my internship at the agency, but Iím glad it is slowly coming to an end.

Usually it is pretty much unlike me to upload two pictures in a row and to just copy and paste the text into both descriptions, but this is an exception! The picture with the Spoiler mask on shows what the outfit of the character originally looks like. The picture without the mask shows what the girl underneath the mask looks like.
Another reason I also upladed the picture without the mask on is that you can see the details of the costume underneath the cape much better.

Compared to my Batgirl costume and Miss Martianís stealth suit, Spoilerís outfit was really easy to sew. Having made two full-body suits before Spoilerís eggplant attire was no challenge for me anymore. The cape was no challenge either.
The utility belt and the full face mask were tricky to make though. It took me about three or four tries until I had finished a basic form of the mask which fitted my face properly. Afterwards I started researching material I could use for the eye area.
My Spoiler mask was made out of black spandex. (Leftovers of Miss Martianís black stealth suit.) Consequently I also needed flexible fabric to fill the eye holes with. It also had to be thin enough to be able to see through. Thatís why I decided to go for the type of fabric fine pantihoses are made of. (I hope thatís the right term.)
After I had finished the black of the mask I cut out small pieces out of white pantihoses/leggings I had purchased at our local supermarket, placed them right under the eye holes and stitched them to the fabric. Iím really happy the way the mask turned out, it is anything but comfortable to wear though. It is really difficult to breath underneath and seeing through the fabric almost impossible. I wonder if the character designer of this outfit has ever tried wearing such a maskÖ
The most difficult part about the utility belt was casting the small grey buckles out of resin. I had never worked with resin before. After listening to a friendís experiences and reading a lot of tutorials I felt like giving it a try though.
The buckles did not turn out perfectly, but that is one of the small details Iím willing to overlook. At least this time. Iím convinced my further resin projects will turn out much better.
All in all Iím satisfied with this costume. It was cheap to make (about 36.00 EUR in total), looks good on pictures and is comfortable to wear. I hope you like is as much as I do! :3

Any questions on how I made this costume? Check out my official F.A.Q. POST!!!

Incredible. Just fantastic work. The color and the details, it's so very subtle yet it comes together into something that is just darn near perfect. The entire outfit just compliments you as well. It's just a perfect match. As I've said in the past it's less Cosplay and more like something taken off the set of a Live-Action film...or even something intended to be used in real life. Either way, the quality of it is just incredible. With this stunning project complete, between this and the internship, I would agree you've more then earned some time on a beach with a Mai Tai in your hand. Amazing work as always, ma'am.

Unfortunately I won't be able to spend time on a beach. The closest beach is, like, 700 kilometers away and it's freezing cold in Germany. I will relax wrapped in my snuggie blanket and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or coffee instead. ;)

Yes, I think so too.
There's actually not much time to relax though. Aah.. why are conventions coming closer so fast?
