21  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Crocheted Nightwing cosplay with a 1950s twist on: March 20, 2015 06:22:02 PM
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.

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.
