Power Girl
DC Comics

Cosplayer: HelenaLove

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

18th May 2015: Update Updated it with new boots and gloves that are much closer to source material (not perfect though) and match this time. Boots where cheap brown leatherette wedges from Shoe Zone, gloves where black matt PVC opera gloves from Honour, I would of got blue gloves and boots but couldn’t find blue ones in my size anywhere . I shortened the gloves and fitted brass zips, the boots had a couple of buckles removed, then both where painted with Flexible Vinyl Spray Paint I found in Halfords. Also repainted the belt buckle and made a new strap for the pauldron because both where damaged. Improves the costume a bit and the boots are more comfortable than the other ones, but I’m worried about that paint lasting, its already cracked a bit on one of the gloves from just the wear at the photoshoot :(

6th October 2013: Just about finished Wore it to the LFCC, so I'm going to call it finished. I guess I was noticed a bit at the con ;) got complimented a few times and had several pictures taken, also generated a few laughs and an awful lot of WTF, well that's to be understood, its possibly the least suitable costume I could wear for my body type :P
There does remain a possibility of a version 1.1 though with changes in the chest area

19th September 2013: LFCC Ok, it looks like Power Girls first outing will be the London Film and Comic Con on the 5th of October, Woot :)

6th July 2013: To Hot Got another wig and sorted out the underwear, but wimped out on the LFCC, its the bloody weather, its just far too hot for me, as even though the costume looks skimpy, its actually a rather warm costume due to all the extra bits and pieces I have to wear with it and I couldn't cope with it in the 27 degree heat today, especially as I would have to go to Earls Court on the tube, which is like an oven when it gets this warm. The costume will keep till October MCM expo, where you can pretty much guarantee it will be cold and grey.

Hi quixoticschlemiel, I am planning to wear it on the Saturday for MCM (or what ever is going to be called now) Expo in October 2013 on Saturday and would love to get a photo with you, I will be easy to spot as I'm very large. But October is a long way off and anything can happen between now and then

That would be a great photo because even with my heels I'm only 5"3, we'd be Peej and Mini-Peej :D I'm planning on cosplaying her for Saturday too so I'll definitely keep an eye out for you :)
