I'm pointing, but I'm not mocking. It looks like you had fun. :-)

Living vicariously through you, again. :-) Although I would wear a Scarlet Witch costume in my fantasy (with the assistance of stern shapewear, I'm afraid ~g~). Thank you for sharing!

What fabric are your gloves?

You'd make a great Wanda. Not too many people cosplay her.

The gloves, boots, and sash are all out of a heavy crushed panne (stretch velvet) that I found fortuitously on sale at the time. It was one of those serendipity moments -- the play of the light on it caught my eye, and I thought immediately of the way they color Phoenix so it almost looks like those portions of her costume are glowing rather than just reflecting. The liquid-metallic stuff that people use now wasn't available, or at least I'd never seen it. I'd been thinking about doing Phoenix for a while, and finding that was what made it work.

I saw this Quicksilver around on Saturday, but never ran into the SW:

Looks like she might be the same one who started this forum thread.

I thought there really was going to be mockage involved.

The costumes all look completely awesome!

Only about walking around in public green or in spandex and heels. :-)

Thank you!!

So, next time you mock me about my idiotic choices in footwear, does this mean I have something to throw back at you? ;P

Seriously, though, you all looked awesome! :) And the plural of Phoenix would most likely be 'phoinikes' in direct transliteration, 'phoenices' in a Latinised version.

Yes, but don't throw it very hard. They're only 1 1/2" heels and I wear good insoles in them. ;-P Also, I had a change of clothes/shoes in the car if needed.

I knew you would know that!

::g:: Actually, I rarely go beyond that height myself anymore; walking 2 miles a day tends to require decent shoes. :)

Phoenices? Or something?

And if you're "stringy" what does that make her? Silly people..

I love the green of your costume, btw. Very pretty colour. And it constrasts nicely with the red hair :-)

Thank you! I would actually have liked a clearer green, but traded off for the heavy weight and slight shimmer. It's amazing how much more variety is available now, less than a decade later!

SO happy that I've finally gotten that shade consistently. And it matches the extensions! Henna FTW! \o/

No pointing and mocking here. I think it's awesome and add the fact that you made the costume, impressive! Plus my family would kick my ass if I even thought being dismissive about comics. I've already shamed myself this week by referring to Captain Marvel as Shazam and I was only talking about the old tv show too. I may be disowned right now and not even know it.

Hee! I have a vague memory of correcting some poor kid in my class that Shazam was just the magic word, not his name. Beware first-grade know-it-alls.

I'd like to think I would have gotten it right back then! (though I'm pretty sure I thought Isis was way cooler)
