Whohoo! Good evening folks!
I'm back from London
! Kapow! Comic Convention
was a blast and one of the most amazing events I have ever been to! I met Scott Snyder
, Kieron Gillen
and many other great people!
I will try to wirte a proper convention report as soon as possible.
Anyway, the picture above is the first proper photograph of one of my latest costumes: Stephanie Brown
outfit from DC
As you might have noticed Steph
is my favourite female comic heroine. Since I had done her Batgirl
outfits before her Robin
getup was a must-have for me as well! I'm really happy the way the costume turned out. It is really comfortable to wear and colourful! Once again all pieces of the costume (besides the boots) are self-made.
[Information for everybody who is interested in materials/crafting:
The mask is made of Worbla's Finest Art
which is similar to Wonderflex
. The utility belt is once again made out of crafting foam.]
In addition I also used a special sort of wig for this costume. It is called lace-front
wig and makes the hairline of the wig look more natural.
At the beginning I was a bit insecure whether I could handle such a professional product, I quickly figured out that it wasn't difficult to put on though. It was easy to cover the hairline with make-up too. I highly recommend this type of wigs. They're amazing! Formalicy: Aigue-Marine
