Scarlet Witch Bracers – Update!

We’ve been updating the current Scarlet Witch Costume Study post – since it’s the most popular destination on this site – with updated, more accurate observations based on new photos.

Since some visitors only view the lastest posts, we thought we’d pull your attention to detail, specifically with Scarlet Witch’s bracers.

Scarlet Witch Accessories – Rings Left-Hand

Am beginning a dive into publishing all the screen caps from the ‘net photo collection we have amassed.  Below are crops of every photo found which illustrates her rings.  We publish them here to support our own conclusions of the exact jewellery, but to also aide in your own research/ideas of how to develop your Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff Avengers 2 Age of Ultron cosplay.

Each ring will be listed as it’s own gallery below.

Research help from you lovely visitors!

Hello to all of you.  We will take time today thank you guys, the visitors for all your wonderful comments, suggestions and input.  Thank you greatly… all of you have contributed something to this site.  What started as a simple project to keep a record of personal research into costume recreation has now grown into one of the top non-commercial sites in Google for searches on Wanda’s costume from Age of Ultron.  I certainly never expected that, :), nor even had that as a goal, but don’t we all feel lucky! All of you are to thank!

THANK YOU!!!!

Additionally, I highly encourage everyone to continue providing observations and feedback.  Many of the discoveries made here are owed to your comments.

In fact, in honour of the helpfulness of you the visitors, I’d like to highlight the contributors who have faithfully been visiting, even during my recent life-enduing hiatus.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Ripped Tights

Hello all!  I hope everyone has enjoyed the release of Age of Ultron.  WHOOT!

While we are still waiting on the detailed post on Scarlet Witch’s Red leather jacket construction, I wanted to highlight a fantastic comment I received from a reader, Whitney on a previous article:

Regarding the tights. Those are burnout tights and really easy to make yourself.

Cut the legs off of opaque tights. Cut random holes. Burn edges of holes with a lighter. You can get the little uneven holes by burning the tights directly (no precut hole). Randomly do both the cut/burn holes and direct burn holes until it gets holey enough.

Burning it will give you the linear holes without running.

Fantastic advice.  I have several pairs of black tights I bought for experimenting.  I’ll try out the suggestion and post the results.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Long Necklace Update

I thought given the observations made on a new high-res BTS photo, perhaps a more direct observation of the conclusions now made would be in order so you can all come to your own conclusions.

Here are the photos we have to judge:

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Necklace NOT a clock/watch

Hello all!  I have immensely enjoyed sharing this journey with all of you.  Nothing tickles my satisfaction bone more than intricate research into a costume.

That being said, there is now a fairly important update to distribute throughout the cosplay community.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Silver Bracelet Beads

Decided to go for a beaded string as the interpretation of the glimpses of a silver bracelet for scarlet witch avengers 2. Shown are some seed beads, top are 4mm Czech, bottom are 2mm Japanese. Might do a combination of both.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Dress Construction

So back to Scarlet Witch’s black dress from Avengers 2.  In the previous post, the screen captures help outline the observable details, so let’s put all the notes together into a sketch to help better illustrate the dress’s basic construction. In addition, there are some thoughts at the bottom of the post on some patterns to help the construction process along.

I should preface all this with the statement that I am by no means a very good artist.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Dress Details

I had started a series of entries to examine Scarlet Witch’s costume for the new Avengers 2 movie Age of Ultron, based on observations from leaked set photos.  In the previous entry, all her accessories, boots, braces and other small items are examined.  In this post, we’ll jump into the black dress she’s wearing.

Above we have the best photos with the most resolution released of the filming so far.  It gives a basic idea of the dress she’s wearing, and by examining a few details from other photos, we can get an idea as to its construction.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Costume Study

UPDATE: As more details become available, we try to maintain the conclusions as accurately as possible. To that end, a new page has been created, which logs all the current research.  Please find it here.

Oh, Wanda, Wanda, Wanda.  You’ve been my favourite mutant for so long.  Well, you and Kitty Pryde, but that’s not what this post is about.  So long have i wanted to dress up like you, but… and i’m ashamed to admit it… i’ve never really liked your costume.  Red and pink… uhhhh.  I was not blessed with a body that could effectively pull off her Ultimate Universe costume.  Xmen Evolution was cool, but as I am not a 15 year old girl, it didn’t quite have the draw to motivate me enough to make it.

There is her House of M gown which is gorgeous, but that’s a cosplay for another post… *wink*

LOVE LOVE LOVE her new Uncanny Avengers dress, and the second I saw it, I filed it away in my brain on my cosplay wish-list.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2But then… magic happened.  Magic in the form of leaked set photos from the filming of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. The film which Joss Whedon in his brilliance decided to include Scarlet Witch and finally let our gorgeous awesome mutant/avenger take form in the real world.  I saw her costume, and it clicked.  “AWESOME!  I could actually wear that to work!!”

(I should note that as a geeky computer programmer who buries her head in her laptop and is continually thought of as ‘nice’ but ‘weird’, i can actually get away with wearing just about anything to work… and I have.  Fairy gown and Mother Gothel top the list of many strange things I’ve worn into the office.)

So, let’s dive in.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time collecting as many photos as can be found and studying them for any minor detail which can be ascertained. The following is my own brain dump of observation as this cosplay starts to take shape.
