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!

Ripped Tights

We just noticed that one of the more popular outgoing links no longer works.  Dysfunctional Dolls ripped tights link is incorrect, they appear to have redesigned their website.

Anyway, the new link is here – Women’s rip torn gothic black tights.  Act quickly thought, the site says there is only 5 left.

If anyone has ordered one of these, please let us know what you think!

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 – Source Images

It occurred to me as i was looking over the last post, that I did not include the many images i’ve collected to do this research.

Important Note: These images are not mine. They are sources from many different location across the net, and I don’t claim any as mine.

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.
