About the Costume: The dark navy blue is wet look spandex, dyed to achieve that deep hue. I'm pleased with the color I got! The gold/yellow stripes and star is made from the same material I used for the bolt on my Ms. Marvel
costume, which I thought was kinda neat. New from the old. The red on the shoulders, collar, and gloves are stretch faux-leather. I was really pleased with how sharp all this came together - very uniform, and I love it.
I also made the wig, which was a natural-blonde bob that I styled back into that windswept faux-hawk, and added a bunch of long wefts along the back. I blended the wig in with my natural hair (hairsprayed blonde) for a more natural looking hairline. It's been a lot of fun walking around cons to hear people say 'You even got the hair right!'
About the Picture: LOOKING DIRECTLY INTO THE SUN. Hahah! We were at the Intrepid Museum in NYC, and I wanted a picture with the flag. We kept on waiting for the wind to cooperate with us and the flag, and I was facing the sun, so she kept saying "Okay, open your eeeeeeyes NOW! No, NOW! C'mon, wind. OkayNOW!" It was funny, and we had a fantastic time - a really nice short break from the hustle of NYCC.
