Character: Polaris (Lorna Dane) from X-Men (Marvel Universe)
Costume made by: Yaya
Photography: :iconcadha13:
Makeup, styling, Model: Yaya
Photo taken at: Albuquerque Comic Expo 2012

I'll admit, the reason I chose this costume is because I had a great wig for it laying around. Originally used for my Sea Nymph mermaid costume, this green/teal gradient wig was a good choice for Polaris. I definitely appreciate her character's heritage, numerous struggles and relationship with Havok, and I like how the color green looks against my skin tone. Not sure why I'm drawn to cosplay all of Magneto's daughters lol (Wanda, Lorna...), I guess I secretly wished he was my daddy? haha

Last push to make the costume was my Guest appearance at Albuquerque Comic Expo, for which I wanted to debut a new cosplay.

As usual, I made 100% of this costume. I can't believe that after 13 years of cosplaying, people still don't believe that I make my own costumes. Well, let those stand forth who have supposedly made my costumes and show in progress proof to the world.
Yeah. They don't exist, because I'm the one pulling all-nighters creating each costume from scratch.

Polaris was a very simple costume to make and I started it on the Tuesday afternoon before ACE, and finished it up around 5am on Thursday morning. Basically, 2 days. It would have only taken 1 day if I hadn't decided to make the bodysuit structured, lined and insert all those seams and lines. The materials were 4-way stretch metallic spandex (to match the look of this statue), wonderflex for the headpiece, gauntlets & anklets, and crepe back satin for the cape. I kind of took my favorite elements of various Polaris outfits and put them together.

I'm totally loving this.  Polaris is my third favorite x-Woman.  This is a stunningly beautiful tribute to the character.

How long did it take you to make the headpiece and gauntlets? And did you buy the wonderflex online or from a shop?
