Fantastical Friday: A Quick Cosplay

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

This post has been prepared with a minimum of DIY in mind. The wig & makeup will take a little bit of work. I’ve chosen to go with Jennifer Walters aka She Hulk & while I was unable to find very accurate costuming for her superhero mode that costume has changed may times through the years, especially during her stint with the Fantastic Four. I did try to stay with the main colors of white & purple, to further the accuracy of the majority of her costumes in the comics. To be noted, this character is not really into the accessories I so love, so no jewelry selections have been made. I missed the 2015 Memphis Comic Expo, which was in early June. I hope to make it next year, but we’ll see how it works out.

I’m going to start off with the wig. The length is a little off & it’s a bit straight for the part we need it for, so I have found a couple of youtube tutorials to help with that. One of the tutorials is for layering while the other is for curling synthetic hair. First I’m going to show a reference image which I found at Giant Bomb, the wig cap & wig are from Wigsbuy.

She Hulk

She Hulk Wig Best Quality Wig Cap 2pack ($16.49)
Yuni Hairstyle Long Layered Straight Deep Green Cosplay Wig 30 Inches (33.99)

Regardless of your costuming choices, green makeup is a must to effectively pull of She Hulk. These items I found at Amazon.com. The liquid latex is a must for not turning your outfit green, of course you’ll have to use something else if you have a latex allergy. If you have the money for it you could always get airbrushed green. 😉

She Hulk Makeup
Paradise Makeup AQ 40g Face & Body Paint ($12.99)
Tish & Snooky’s MANIC PANIC N.Y.C. Ice Metals Green Envy Lethal Lipstick ($12.25)
Ammonia Free Liquid Latex Body Paint 8oz Green ($12.99)

On to the costuming. I could not find a swimsuit that I especially liked for this, as all of them would require modification. I wanted to keep this as simple as possible so modifying a swimsuit seemed a bit much. My choices for her superhero get up are not that inaccurate really, she has worn a very similar costume briefly in the comics. These selections also come from Amazon.com.

She Hulk Hero FPT Womens Basic Sleeveless Racerback Crop Tank Top ($8.50)
Seamless Purple Hot Shorts Hot Pants ($5.90)
Bamboo Womens Rebeca-02R Boot ($14.99)
Volyer Women’s Winter Mink Cashmere Half Finger Gloves Cute Fingerless Gloves Mitts ($9.99)

Since her transformation she often stays in her hulk form, so the green makeup still works for her lawyer persona. These selections come from Walmart & I didn’t notice at first but they are all from the same collection, lol. I went with plus sizes for this one, because She Hulk is a big girl when not in her more human form.

Jennifer Walters George Women’s Plus-Size Long Sleeve Woven Career Blouse ($7)
George Women’s Plus-Size Classic Career Blazer ($21.88)
George Women’s Plus-Size Career Suiting Pencil Skirt ($13)
George Women’s Classic Mid-Heeled Pump Dress Shoe ($11.97)

Party On!

Today I bring another lovely collection from Carnet de Mode, one of the most expensive brands that I affiliate with. As the title suggests you could easily be the life of the party with these selections. I could not so very readily find a ring or 2 that was within, even by high end standards, what I would call an acceptable price range so I omitted that from this post. I think this assemblage fits well with the warming weather trend of my recent posts.

Today’s collection is comfortable, casual & youthful. I know that many of my readers are not in the American south as I am, but very soon in my area the brutal heat of the summer will be upon my area. When the summer & the mugginess of living near the Mississippi river hits wearing something light becomes critical to survival, that is if you don’t want heat stroke anyway lol. Each selection is from OASAP which offers a wide variety of affordable items. This post contains affiliate links following them to make purchases will earn me a small commission.

Day Dreams

I don’t know about you, but I day dream about shopping all the time, lol. Can’t afford to shop as much as I imagine it, but window shopping is usually a safe alternative. I found today’s items at Lane Bryant. I always enjoy browsing the beautiful selections available in that shop with their understanding that not all women are incredibly slim. I think this ensemble is great for formal & casual situations. I love versatile outfits, it’s easier to justify apparel purchases when I can see myself wearing it often.

Youthful Exuberance

With the arrival of spring my inner young woman longs to get outside & play in the warmer weather. Today’s collection is inspired by this powerful feeling of joy in the season.

This ensemble is entirely from OASAP & be aware that I will receive a small commission on your purchases if you follow my links to do your shopping.

Simple Basics

My selections this time come from Walmart, inspired by the returning spring. Each item I chose is a style staple, in that they can be easily coordinated for a wide variety of different looks. It can be important to have versatile pieces in a wardrobe & treasure box, if an item cannot be easily restyled it might just be taking up valuable space rather than seeing the use it should. Clothing & jewelry are meant to be worn, not hidden away as part of a draconian hoard, lol. I hope you enjoy this collection & keep in mind that if you follow my links to do your shopping I will receive a small commission from your purchases.

Simple Basics

Faded Glory Women’s Short Sleeve Crew Tee ($4.94)

Dial Up the Style

Another beautiful assemblage from Lane Bryant. I always enjoy shopping the lovely styles on their site! I especially enjoy the jewelry, but I imagine that’s to be expected lol. In today’s ensemble I thought the bold splash of color from the top should be accented with appropriately colorful accessories, so my selections are based around that. I hope you enjoy this post! 😀 Remember that following my links to do your shopping I will earn a small commission from your purchases.
