wow that is fantastic crochet work, it must have taken you forever

A couple of months working on it most nights, which is about what the PG outfit took as well. I'm finishing up a third costume right now (Carol Danvers from Marvel), and it's taken a bit more time because I'm using sport weight yarn rather than worsted. It's going to totally be worth it because I can just tell how much lighter it is, which means I won't be quite so boiling hot on the con floor.

Whoa. This is super impressive!! I was already pretty amazed by your Power Girl getup, which is awesome by the way, and then I saw you also did Big Barda before. WOW. Didn't it take ages to make?

I think the whole costume took a couple of months, working pretty much every night on it. The hardest part was the helmet. It's three tiers of black yarn, the basic yellow trim, enlarging the yellow triangle, the red bit, the medallion, the two helmet stripes, and then the sticky-out helmet detail. I kept thinking I was finished and then realized I needed to add something else on.

The cape was the easiest because it's just triple crochet (same as the PG cape), and the only real time-suck otherwise was all the crocodile stitch I needed for the scales. So many crocodile stitches.

I never would have thought a crocheted costume could look this cool Smiley

It was really fun to piece together. This is actually the second one I did. The first was Big Barda, which was way more intense, but I'm glad I went big on my first one because it gave me more confidence for this one:

I posted this on the crochet board a couple of weeks back because I never thought to check the Clothing board for a costume sub-board. But anyway, this is my Power Girl cosplay. It's all crochet save the wig I still need to buy. The gauntlets and boots came from patterns, but I winged the dress, cape, and belt. It's all basic crochet stitches save the cape cord, where I used a stitch called lobster stitch. I used fabric stiffener on the boots to keep them upright. It's gonna get debuted at Emerald City Comic Con in March along with a couple of others I'm still working on.

It looks fabulous, and you got the perfect shade of pink. I love the detail on the sleeve puffs.

Wow, that's a lot of crochet! You look awesome!!

Thanks! It was a lot of fun. My favorite part is that most of it is just basic stitches. I used the lobster stitch for the cape cord, and the rest is triple crochet (cape) single crochet (some of the boots and the cape shield and the gloves), and tons of half-double (the dress and the belt). I really like doing costumes in crochet just to appreciate how much you can do with basic stitches.

Very Impressive!! You look quite powerful already.  Cheesy

Thank you! I definitely feel like I could punch some people out while wearing it. Smiley

These are fantastic! It was basically a list of "Oooh, I want that one. Oooh, no, that one! Wait! No! That one!" I love the felt additions as well; it really makes them look great.

My Big Barda cosplay (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435819.msg5245878#msg5245878) was so much fun (and such a hit), I decided to give the whole thing another go and made a Power Girl costume for Emerald City. I used patterns for the boots and gauntlets (linked under their pictures), and I winged the rest.

Gauntlet pattern here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/gauntlet-style-fingerless-gloves

Boots pattern here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cozy-slippers-crochet-boots

I think it's gonna be a big hit. Just need a blonde wig and some push-ups to make my biceps look awesome. Happy to answer questions if you have them.

Whoa, this is incredible!  Shocked

Thank you! My favorite part is that it's mostly basic stitches, and the crocodile stitch is pretty easy to master, even if it takes forever when you need it for a lot of rows. Smiley
