Just wanted to pop in and show you my costume creation. A friend and I decided to dress as superheros for a party and she went as Batgirl and I went as Supergirl.
|It's a bird... It's a plane... it's Helen Slater!|
Try as I might, I knew I couldn't pull off a leotard and super short skirt, so I did a bit of modification.
I know that I look best in empire waists and v-necks so here's my spin-off on the costume.
I bought fleecebacked red satin for the skirt, trim and cape. The skirt is a modified circle skirt. I bought a blue long sleeved shirt from the SalVal and cut a v-neck into it and lined it with the satin. Since that didn't leave much room for the "S" emblem, I put that on the yellow belt, made with red and yellow felt and velcro. The cape, which you can't see since it's behind me (cause I'm a shatty picture-thinker-abouter) fastened to the inside of the shirt with velcro.
I'd say this costume cost me around $25 and took around 2 hours to make. It was SUPER SIMPLE (as per Sandra Lee) and would have been done much faster if I didn't suck at sewing.
Here we are in all of our superhero glory!
