Why I chose to make this costume:

I have wanted to make a set of foam armor for a while, to see how if differs from Worbla and other materials I have used in the past. 

How I made this costume:

I've always wanted to pay homage to the tongue-in-cheek, fabulous retro sci-fi futura theme of the 60's, which is why I keep coming back to the Retro Space Girl theme. It's a whimsical pin-up, cheesecake, sexy yet innocent world, and if you know me, you know I LOVE all of these things!


I used a metallic silver spandex (center panels), a silver pleather (side panels), a pink neoprene (trim), a pink spandex layered over the neoprene (inserts, puffs) and reflective pink band (contrasting trims, belt). All together, 5 materials just for the outside of the jacket and bodysuit, which are lined as well.


Patterning and fit were really challenging, and I spent a few added up hours just seam ripping! 


I went for a racing suit look this time, and made costume so it can be worn with or without the jacket. 


Brian was awesome and made the jetpack for me in 2 days! It does light up but we shot in between rain so I didn't turn them on.


My hair was colored by Rogue Hair Studio, and I also used the custom colored extensions from them!

Thoughts on this costume:

I have so much fun with this character, and want to keep making more costumes for her!!! I loved being able to use my hair this time, and also have a jetpack!
