Ms. Marvel by LeapingLeigh Ms. Marvel by LeapingLeigh
This costume was made by request for my friend Corey. I will admit that I am more of a DC fan and Carol is not my favorite character but I love how this costume looks on me. The leo and gloves were made out of 4 way stretch latex. This stuff is not easy to work with so if you plan on making something with it, be forewarned that you either need a leather foot for your machine or tissue paper to help the fabric feed through. Also it does not stretch nearly as much as other fabrics so give yourself a bigger seam allowance. I did not and as you can see the leo is pretty much skin tight and as such, the cheap zipper acts up when I put it on and I have to have someone play with it until it co-operates. I used the vogue 8171 pattern for my gloves and elongated them. For the leo I used the simplicity 3912 pattern and altered it by a lot. The lightening bolt was attached with wonder under and then top stitched on, unfortunately the gold spandex is starting to wear so I will have to take that one off soon and re-attach a new one. I used a gift card that I had won from a costume contest to buy my boots because there wasn't much else from the website I was interested in. I added a panel of latex and pleather to make the boots curve up on the sides. I ordered the mask on [link]. Unfortunately the day of this shoot I forgot my spirit gum, instead I used eyelash glue which doesn't hold as well, so we didn't get a lot of shots. This shoot was done on March 27th at the Graffiti Warehouse with [link]

What makes this so outstanding you have the body and pose to really make it stand out! Have you thought about reducing the size of the bolt and it extending the tail end of the stripe way down to the pelvis? In many instances, it's depicted that way in the comics.

I hope you'll wear it again and hopefully grab some pictures of it at NYCC this year... which I painfully missed seeing last year. :)

I was thinking about replacing the bolt soon because the gold is starting to wear off. Depends on time and motivation lol. If I do I'll take your suggestion.

I'm thinking along the design of how Mark Brooks depicts her. Like the Z in Zorro. :)
