Last winter’s labour of love was completing the other three Super Outers so we’d have a group to go with the Saturn I’d already made for Sperren. I was really happy we got to wear these together on the Sunday of Con-G, and I really want to wear them again on a day where we didn’t get up at 7am to watch a hockey game.
Though the original plan was to do legit fem versions of Cap & Bucky for Fan Expo this year, those ended up falling through (but will be happening eventually!) so instead, casual versions it was!
I put together my Cap based on this outfit from The Winter Soldier, and added on the star detail on the shirt for fun! And I found that ridiculous cotton turtle neck at Value Village and decided it was perfect for Bucky. The big undertaking for this was my Bucky’s metal arm that I made, which I’m still super proud of :) My Bucky had the shield from her work at Cineplex and reinforced it so it could be worn around con.
Welcome to My Garden: I had the chance to shoot after hours at the Ontario Science Centre’s Rainforest Exhibit during Atomic Lollipop. I’ve always wanted to do a shoot with Poison Ivy in a greenhouse this location was 10X better than why I had dreamed off. Photo By: Kevin Chan
Costume Construction: I made the entire costume myself, the base is a spiral steel boned ‘playboy bunny suit with a built in bra. Every leaf is coated in E600 and attached to the suit. I used a mixture of silk ivy leaves and inexpensive ivy from the dollar store to create dimension and colour variation between the leaves. My gloves are leather painted in two tones of green. I made the gussets a contracting light green as an added detail to blend with the different leaf colours I used on the suit. I wanted to incorporate a lot of different green tones to keep everything looking lush and natural. I purchased a lace front wig in a natural red and mounted small leaves on spiral hair clips to give me a leafy halo.
