Here's the whole outfit in action at the Con:

I did get to go to the Dr. Who panel: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris_wass/3764973646/in/set-72157621700175163/
And I met John B in person while in the nerdcore version WW costume! http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris_wass/3764478736/in/set-72157621700175163/

Your stuff is always so cool!   Cool 

You make me want to revive my childhood fixations on the Green Hornet (I have almost all the surviving radio shows and well as some comics), and on an obscure Saturday morning, live action hero called ISIS....I once made an Isis outfit out of brown paper bags, tempera paint and scotch tape -- I could make something so much more durable now....

BTW: I am totally jealous of the fact you might get to gaze at -- and breath air with -- David Tennant at the event.

Thank you!

I hope to see David and John Barrowman! I originally planned on leaving Sunday morning, as there hadn't been Sunday panels I had to see in the past, but it looks like I'll be driving back to AZ in the dark this time. :-D

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
eta - I bet you could use oatmeal containers to get the shape you would need...

Well, this is what I threw together last night:

I'm not thrilled with it, but it will suffice, since I leave tomorrow to drive to San Diego. I used materials that I had on-hand. Circle templates were a saucepan, a water bottle, and a container of catnip.

This is awesome! I really need to see the Batgirl version!  Cheesy

You could make one! It would be awesome! My friend chickened out, but she hasn't managed to finish a tank top that she's happy with yet.

I think the lantern (for recharging your ring) might be a little too complicated for a week... http://kenk3n.files.wordpress.com/2007/07/green_lantern.jpg... hmm...  I will keep thinking/researching...

Hmm, maybe I could whip up something lantern-ish out of felt. Thanks for the suggestion and taking time to look things up!

Great job on all those socks!  Grin

Awesome!  I think the WonderWoman is a little more awesome, but this is definitely awesome and I think you can probably get a lot more wear out of this, haha.

So what will you be carrying your stuff in this year?  (The invisible jet purse was rather clever)

Yeah, I also think that the WW is a bit more awesome, but I do think that this one could be worn on a casual basis. Let my geek flag fly!

Thanks for remembering the purse! I can't think of a special bag that would be appropriate to this outfit. I have a week left to make something, if you have any suggestions!

After last year's fun with the knit Wonder Woman costume (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257117.msg2872760#msg2872760), I struggled to come up with something equally awesome to create to wear to this year's San Diego Comic-Con in July. I didn't have as much lead time this year, with baby projects to create for the beginning of June, so I knew that I wouldn't be doing another full bodysuit arrangement. I decided to create a Green Lantern Corps outfit, knitting a sleeveless Green Lantern sweater and crocheting mask, but wearing bought pants, green Converse, and power ring to fill in the rest of the look.

Yarn: Knitpicks Shine Sport in Grass and White
Needle: Size US 5 circular for the body, size US 3 for the rib
Gauge: 6 stitches and 8 rows = 1 inch

The sweater is knit top-down in the round. I started with 1x1 rib on US 3 for 1.5", then switched to US 5 and increased with raglan shaping in knit. I bound off the shoulders then worked the front and back separately, increasing at the edges, to the armpit. The chart was made using a logo I found online and Knitpro, which then required a good bit of cleanup in Photoshop. The intarsia chart was worked in the front only while it was still worked flat before the armpit. I cast on 2" under each armpit to get to my high bust measurement. I put in stitch markers at the halfway points.

Knit solid for a few inches to where I would decrease for the waist. On the first row of decreases I inserted 4" of short row shaping for the difference between my upper bust and actual bust measurements. Continued decreasing 4 stitches (1 stitch on each side of the maker) every inch 4 times then increased every inch 5 times. Knit solid for a few more inches until the length from the armpit was 15". Switched to US 3 and knit 1.5" of 1x1 rib.

If you use the chart, please post your projects, I'd love to see them! It is really two colors, green and white, though it appears mottled because of how Knitpro interpreted the image.

Aw, supercute! Great job! I think that he'll be proud to have this in his collection.
