Zatanna is a awsome character, powerful with a bad ass costume. I came across the tail coat in a vintage store and had to buy it and then proceded to make this costume.
The tail coat is a vintage 1930's tail coat in almost perfect condition (few little rips in the lining) it was acutlly made in toronto by a Bill Fargular in Octber 1936 (there is a tag on the inside of the inner breast pocket with that cool info.
I also made the vest out of my own pattern, the shirt is a altered men shirt and i also made the bow tie. The bottoms are made from spandex.
I was so excited to do photos with Amanda/Elemental at Polaris, I though how she plays with light would perfectly suit Zatanna. Needless to say I'm in love with the outcome of the photos. I also plan on commissioning a new top hat from Amanda at some point *crosses fingers* since she does awesome millinery work and I'd love to have a hat to perfectly match my tail coat. Also if you look closely at the cards in the photo you'll notice there actually french XD, mysteriously the only cards i could find at my house were a deck from Air France!
