I'm bringing Batgirl to C2E2! You can find me at my exhibit hall booth 216 right up front, please come by if you can!
Batgirl construction breakdown: -Armor made from plastic (chest piece & shoulders) and urethane rubber (abdomen). Patterned and sculpted by me, molded with help from Brian Boling, finished and attached by me. (It was a bitch) -Undersuit made from a shiny and a matte stretch pleather. Patterned and sewn by me. The quilted parts were really fun! -Cape made from matching black and gold pleather, with lead cape weights. Swooshiest cape I have ever made lol -Gauntlets made with Worbla & foam, covered in matching gold pleather. I really enjoyed drafting the template for these pieces! I know from how clumsy I am that I could not make the gauntlets out of resin or plastic, or even fiberglass. I would either hurt myself or destroy them at cons. So I opted for worbla/foam because it is lightweight and surprisingly durable. -Gloves made from scratch from same gold pleather. I tried to be super accurate with the design and made individual quilted finger pads O_o -Boots used to be Thigh High boots, I altered them severely. A note about the high heels - yes I know they are not accurate. BUT I am so short and the costume is so padded out with the armor and pleathers that I need some help on the height front to pull off that look. -Belt made from gold powdered urethane rubber
