October Photo Challenge-Super Hero
Last year for San Diego Comic Con I did cosplay for the first time and it was def an interesting experience.
It all started when I painted a couple of mini ballerina WonderWomans for fun and after I finished, I thought it would be pretty cool to actually make a real costume based off my painting.
I’ve been dancing ballet for most of my life and it was very important for me to make this costume look legit as if I could dance right on stage with it! :)
I ordered a custom ballet bodice and sewed on notions from Britex Fabrics in SF. I ordered an inexpensive fluffy tutu off Etsy and sewed star notions on the fabric. A gold rope tassel made my “lasso of truth,” I dyed a pair of my old pointe shoes red and switched out my pink satin ribbons for some awesome red and metallic silver ones! My bulletproof bracelets are doubled silver on gold filigree cuffs from Forever 21 and I hot glued another star notion to that. I chose my favorite tiara off a store on Amazon and sewed another red star notion to complete my costume.
This was such a fun project-I may have to do something else ballerina-themed sometime soon. :)
