I had to do it eventually. Love that song….
Anyway, I kinda was on fire last night! Check out my 2015 Halloween costume, handmade by me (with a little help from my friend Hilaree- she’s the tits!).
Dark Phoenix, from the X-Men!
Hilaree cut and sewed the Phoenix logo on my chest, and also made the “boots” for my legs. I made the gloves, sash, and shoe covers. The unitard is actually two pieces: leggings from American Apparel (my go-to shop for all my basic costume needs) and a long-sleeve leotard from Danny’s Warehouse (discount dance store in LA; it’s fabulous!). The yellow material was from Joann’s and is a super stretchy lycra blend. This was my first time sewing with this type of material, and it was actually fairly simple.
It was also my first time making gloves, and that was SURPRISINGLY easy to do! I found this fantastic tutorial that changed my life and I am forever grateful to have learned this technique.
And we even ran into a few fellow X-Men!
