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.

I know nothing about superheroes, but I really like your jacket. It looks very good with your jeans and shoes in the last picture.

Thanks so much! Captain Marvel is a former Air Force major who was a pilot, and now she has superpowers and punches dinosaurs for a living while having awesome hair. She's pretty rad. Smiley

Ah that is so cool!  Great job.  I love it casually with the jeans and chucks

I was super pleased with how it looked with my jeans, and it was fun because if you know the jacket, you recognize it, but I had a few people assume it was a sports-based thing, which was pretty funny to me. The Chucks make me so happy.

Wow, that's totally awesome!!! This makes me want to start crocheting superhero jackets too!! ^____^

Oh, you totally should! I really liked making it raglan style because I could constantly try it on and say, "Yes, okay, I am clearly making progress."

The jacket is crochet except for the zipper, which I sewed by hand. The shoes I designed on Converse's website. I actually crocheted pants to go along with the jacket, but I tossed on my dark wash jeans to wear the whole get-up to work, and I think I like them better. There is a lucky hat still in the works, but I am super proud of the jacket, so I wanted to get it up now.

Jacket was worked raglan-style (top down). Pockets were added on top of red trim. The star is actually four pieces using square stitch that were then sewn into place.


Proof of pants:

I thought they'd look funny with the jacket, but it actually all comes together like I pictured it. So, crocheted pants it is, then.

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.
