I love the X-Men, but I really wanted to cosplay a character that fit me really well and that was Pixie. She’s a happy-go-lucky member of team and she is full of fun despite some really bad things happening to her. I really love cosplaying Pixie. I wear her a lot for charity events because kids like to see fairies.
This costume was slightly challenging for me because I had never made a full bodysuit before. I learned a lot about working with spandex. I choose a wet look spandex because I wanted it to look slightly leatherish. Sewing spandex to spandex and trying to keep nice straight lines was pretty tough, but I finally pulled it off. I used the left over yellow spandex for the belt strap and lined it with a heavy duty interfacing. The belt buckle is a foam base covered with worbla and I glued a parachute buckle to the back to hold it together. The gauntlets are also a foam from worbla. The base boot are galoshes. The additions are foam painted with plastidip. We didn’t use worbla for the full boots because we wanted them to be flexible. The plugs on the ankle are worbla however. I had a lot of fun making and wearing this costume. I am not sure if I’ll ever retire it.
