Awesomeness! (Did you even crochet matching slippers/shoes?)

I did! The pattern is on ravelry:

I really liked it; it had a lot of pictures to help as you went along. There's a buttonhole in the original pattern, but I skipped that and just sewed my buttons on the top because I got lazy. Smiley

Oh wow, that's awesome! Love the way it ruffles!

Thank you! The ruffle was a happy accident. The yarn I used had a lot of elasticity (Cascade Fixation), so it ruffled all on its own as I worked.

Cute! Love your color choices and your t-shirt Grin

Thank you! If ever there was a character who could cross fandoms, it's Deadpool. Smiley

I was trying to just make a raglan with intentionally bad color change (changing color just wherever the previous yarn ran out), but the nature of the yarn (Cascade Fixation) gave the edging a ruffle I didn't plan for (the yarn has a very elastic stretch to it), but I love it a whole lot now that it's done. It's comfortable and a perfect weight for the current weather conditions.

What a fun interpretation.  That's a lot of hours of crochet.  And nice fit.


Thank you so much! It was fun to figure out how it would look. It IS A lot of hours of stitching. I know for certain the skirt took about 18 hours, but I'm not sure about the rest. The mask took the least amount of time; only about twenty minutes. The fit was handily helped along by having undergarments to shape around.

The Discowing Nightwing costume is probably one of my favorites in all of comics. It is so ridiculous, and so I just had to make it more ridiculous with a poofy skirt and an adorable little handbag. This is the first time I've had the full costume together, so the poses aren't great, but I'm really proud of the whole thing. Tip to toe, it's all crochet save the buttons on the shoes and the ribbon on the mask.







And, of course, the look that started it all:



I'll be rolling this out at ECCC this coming weekend, and I can't wait.

Holy smokes, that is awesome! Fantastic stitching!

Thank you so much! I actually finally got a pic with the pants I also made to go along with it, which I added to the main post but am ridiculously proud of, so I'm showing here:

Holy crap! This is fabulous work, and so well done!

Thank you! The raglan design helped keep the complication issues down, but the star gave me fits for about a week before I (literally) slammed down the lucky hat (still to be finished) and yelled, "SQUARE STITCH" in my best friend's kitchen. After that, it got pretty manageable again.

Very well suited jacket.

Thank you! The fit came out really well. I couldn't ask for a better first try on that front.

awesome jacket.  I love it

Thank you! I am happy to report it is the perfect amount of cozy that I do not think will lead to sweating myself to a mess on the con floor.
