The 2nd annual Rose City Comic Con was just this past weekend.  My 5 year old daughter Aria decided on not one but TWO costumes.  Makes sense considering there are two days of comic con.  Her first request was Rogue and the second was Wasp from The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.  I'll provide links to my supplies and tutorials after each photo.

First up is Rogue.  


Leotard:
I used Kwik Sew 3103 for the pattern.  I had to do a little color blocking to get that classic green/yellow Rogue look.  It was quite an adventure as I'd never worked with spandex before.  Thankfully, I have a serger and after buying some wooly nylon thread, it actually wasn't too bad to work with.    The spandex is Milliskin Shiny four way stretch and I got it from the Spandex House . I used the left overs to make her boot covers and gloves and headband.
Belt:
The belt used to be a Men's large belt that I simply cut down.  I bought a belt buckle blank off an etsy shop and used duct tape to make the X-Men logo.  I considered using resin and really getting technical but I decided that this would enable me to change up her belt buckle for future costumes.  Resewing the buckle onto the belt was a cinch with my beautiful Bernina 350 PE.  Oh my goodness, I love that machine so much (Thanks, Craftster for the chance to play and then later buy the machine).  
Jacket:
I couldn't find a bomber jacket pattern for the life of me so I ended up using Cali Faye Collection's DrewB Blazer pattern .  I simply cropped the design a lot to get the right look.  The jacket was made from this weird faux leather fabric.  I liked it because comic cons can get kind of hot and I wanted something light weight.  I made up a felt patch for it and sewed it on by hand.  
Accessories:
The boots are simple knee high boots that I covered with spandex boot covers using this tutorial I found online.  The gloves I made simply tracing her hand on some paper.  I figured the spandex would stretch enough to not need little finger gussets.  The white hair was bought from I Kick Shins on Etsy.   I didn't want to use messy hair paints or harsh chemicals.  

The best part?  She had a blast getting so much attention.  We entered her into the 14 and under costume contest at the end of the night.  She got up on that stage in front of a huge crowd of people all by herself.  And she took second in the contest.  She was beyond the moon to have placed.  




Next up is Wasp.  


Dress:
I used a Cali Faye Collection pattern again.  This time the Simply Chic Dress pattern.  I obviously left off the collar and did some color blocking.
Head set:
I used two push lights and simply drilled holes in them to stick little dowel rods into them.  I spray painted them yellow and added black detailing.  They were then attached to a black headband.  
Accessories:
I used the same boots and gloves from the Rogue costume.  Wings were made from thick wire, nylon hose, and spray paint.  

Aria insisted on cutting her hair for the Wasp costume for authenticity.  Like the day before, she got a lot of attention and loved every second of it.  The best part of the second day though was running into the head writer for The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon.  He called us over to his table and asked me to take a photo of the two of them together on his phone.  He told Aria how he wrote the show and that his favorite character was Wasp.  She was awe-struck and stood there smiling at him shyly.  Now she wants to write him a letter.  heh.  

update (9/27): Since we got that picture, Aria has been saying daily that she wants to send him a letter.  Today while watching his cartoon, she drew him a picture.  I looked all over the internet looking for an address that fans can send him things.  Finally, I found his twitter account and told him that Aria AKA Wasp from Rose City Comic Con really wanted to send him something and asked him if there was an address for fans to send such things.  He sent me an address immediately via a PM and said that I made HIS day.  What a completely down to earth and amazing man.  He earned himself some lifelong fans in this household.  Smiley



We've already bought our tickets for the Emerald City Comic Con and Aria is trying hard to think of who to go as.  Since its only 6 months away and we plan on going the third Rose City Comic Con next year, I may try to steer her towards something more simple...like Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service.  Heh.  We'll see if she goes for it.

Wonderful!! These costumes turned out amazing! I especially think the Wasp is fab, and her actually cutting her hair for it, way too cool!

What beautiful costumes!  You're daughter looks absolutely radiant in them!  Nothing like some mother and daughter bonding over geekery.

Bravo for braving new materials.  I am absolutely intimidated by stretch materials.

It was pretty big.  I was impressed with it considering its only the second one.  I hope you had as much fun as we did.  

Thanks everyone for the compliments and kind words.  I swear I have just as much, if not more, fun as Aria does.  I'm so grateful she actually gets excited about cosplaying.  I hope she lets me make her costumes for awhile...you know...at least until she starts making her own.  Wink

Awww...shucks!  Thanks everyone.  It really is too much fun for me.  Heh. 

She already has her costume picked out for the Emerald City Comic Con in March.  Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service.  So excited and can barely wait to get started.  Smiley

Tenitsu, you are in for so much fun.  And its so easy to get the kiddos hooked on cosplaying.  The costumes, the attention... Heh.  Aria is even kind of shy and she really gets into it.  Smiley

meleriffic, oh my goodness, I'm still excited that the writer of the Avengers cartoon wanted a photo with her.  It was a really cool experience.  And it warms my heart that he took the time to make Aria feel so special.

Thank you.  Smiley 

cinnamon teal, I know...she is getting so big and turning out to be such a sweet but spunky young lady. 

So I'll be updating the front page but this just happened and Yost just made himself that much more awesome.

I love when people remember the children....to many people get rich and famous and blow everyone off but they seem to forget its their fanbase that keeps them rich >.> It's awesome that he not only remembered her but so excitedly gave you an address for her to send her little drawing, he totally won points in my book for that one!

I cant wait to get into cosplaying, especially if I can get my little one into it! We were going to go to Tsubasacon this year (they've got pinkie pie there and riza was just estatic about wantin to meet pinkie pie), but alas financial means didnt work out this year ...hopefully income tax time this year will be forgiving and give me the means to go next year haha! =^-^= already spoke to the security dept head at the con center about their prop weapon policy (w00t my full length wooden replica naginata will be permitted! yay!)

Now just to figure out a cute easy access costume for the toddler and totally go wild with it =D You've totally inspired me and given me the confidence to say to hell with it, i'm doing it! =P

Oh she definitely had a blast.  Super tired by the end of the 2nd day but oh so much fun for all of us!

Awesome costumes and your daughter is adorable in them. Lucky for her to meet the creator of one of her favorite characters too! I can't blame her for being over the moon.

Thanks! I'm pretty excited for her too!  For the ECCC I'll get to meet the writer and illustrator for my favorite comic series...so I'll soon know what it feels like.  Of course, I don't think they'll ask for a photo with me.  Heh.

WOW!  I'm super impressed!  And how great that she got to meet the writer!

Smiley  You'll have a blast.  All of you will have a blast.  I mean its dressing up!  Most children I know love that sort of thing.  And at least at the RCCC, folks were super awesome with Aria.

What a wonderful story, and darling little girl, to be so lucky to have you to design fun "dress up" for her.

I have crafted 8" Action Figure toys of many of the characters that are OOAK collectables, and am familiar with the "Cons".

Wonderful job. You outdid yourself of these! Too bad she will grow out of them, though. You could always shadow box some with the photos, and keep the memories alive? Just an idea. Unless you know another child to pass them along to. These are too good to waste!

Thanks. Smiley  Yeah...I'll keep them around and see if I can pass them on.  If not, I'll keep them for when she's an adult.  I know I love mementos from when I was younger.
