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

This was so cool to see a crocheted costume! Smiley I put it on Geek Crafts this morning.


Oh, greatness! I'm thrilled you liked it so much! I'm actually working on another costume for ECCC, so we'll see if that one turns out as well.

I'm shocked!  This rocks!!

Thank you! It was pretty fun to put together, and it was worth the occasional headaches to get such a good response at con.

Oh wow, that is so cool! It must have been a lot of work, all that crochet. What's the texture on the gauntlets, waist and legs?

Thank you! The fancy stitch is crocodile. Everything else is either half-double (the rest of the body work) or single (the megarod). The crocodile stitch bits took awhile, but the rest went pretty quickly.

I am amazed that you did all this in crochet.  It is quite an epic feat.

It was, but it ended up being really fun, and it was a hit at the con, so it all turned out great!

I made a Big Barda cosplay for Rose City Comic Con this past weekend, and it came out great! I got a lot of compliments, and I only sweat moderately. (Note to self, it doesn't matter how much you like the blue yarn for the legs and torso, worsted weight is not con-friendly).

With the exception of the hexagons, I didn't use any patterns.

Legs, torso, and gauntlets are crocodile stitch. The cape is triple crochet. The rest of it is half-double. The megarod (my totally not-phallic weapon) is single crochet with bubble stitch on the top and the buttons were stitched on separately.

Let me know if you have any questions! I actually got some in-progess shots for this one!

It was supposed to be a shawl, but then I figured out if I seamed two of the corners, I'd have sleeves. So, I did that (because lazy), and then I added the pink edging to give it some length and sewed on the button so it'd close. It's a perfect, lightweight bit of cuteness to help cheer up the gray days that will hit you up in the Pacific Northwest.
