August – Visitor Round-up

Another month closes… and now we are entering Autumn! YAY!  ahem… excuse us… sorry… it’s our favourite time of year.

Anyway, it’s time to highlight all the visitors from August who not only just dropped by to say ‘hi’,  but left valuable information which furthers our community.

All efforts are made to keep archived posts accurate with new information, but in case something gets overlooked, it’s highlighted below.

We’ve said once, and we will shout it again: This site wouldn’t be nearly as accurate if it weren’t the wonderful information you all post, so please, keep commenting!  It helps everyone!

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.

Scarlet Witch Red Pendant Necklace

DING DING DING!!!

We have a winner!  Huge thanks to reader Vivi for pointing us in this direction:

Don’t know if anyone has mentioned yet but I’m 99% sure her red necklace is a kuchi coin with a red glass stone.

I didn’t even know about such things, and now that i’ve seen it, i’m 100% positive this is Wanda’s necklace. A kuchi coin pendant with a smooth-finished, transparent glass oval bead/jewel, non-faceted, hung on a silver cord-style chain.

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.
