I don’t have a lot of pictures of this costume and it was one nightmare of a costume. Yes, this is a simple costume and if you need something fast I recommend making Ms. Marvel. The reason it was a nightmare is because I had to make it three different times. I learned that testing material is important!
The first attempt had to be retired because the gold material stating fraying even though it was adhered to the leotard. Since it was adhered I couldn’t just unstitch the material and replace it. 😦 I had to start all over. Not to mention I couldn’t wash the costume because of how fragile the material was. When you CAUSEplay being able to wash a costume is important! So many kids, often sweat from the sun, and food gets spilled sometimes.
The second and third attempts died because the zipper broke on the leotard and I didn’t want to make is a fourth time. I ordered the leotard from a discount dance supply website that seemed like a great idea but it wasn’t. I also ordered several blue leotards for my Psylocke costume and had the same issue. The zipper broke! You may be thinking, why not just sew it back one. The answer is simple. I couldn’t sew lycra then. And even now I don’t think I could successfully sew a zipper to lycra.

This is one of my favorite random pics of this costume!! I found a reference picture of Mystique as Ms. Marvel and had to get a picture as it. Why? Because how many people can! 😀
