Huntress by gillykins Huntress by gillykins
My Huntress cape really likes to flow majestically in the wind. Capes make you look at least 50% cooler

Costume Construction:

The bodysuit it made from a custom pattern drafted by myself. The suit has a combination of modified princess seams and angled hip darts to shape the suit and belly window. The bodysuit is made from black and white metallic spandex. The bodysuit has built in leggings for the sake of 'modesty' and comfort.

The boots are boot-covers created over a pair of combat boots. I used wet look purple spandex for the base of the boot and ribbed a section under the knee for detailing and to help keep the boot up. The strapping and lower shoe guard are made from purple vinyl. The knee pads are highly modified children's knee guards which I ripped apart, rebuilt and then coated in a semi gloss glaze.

The belts and pouches are made from the same purple vinyl. I created my own pattern for the pouches and engineered my own design for the belts. My belt buckle is made from resin marbled in black and gold.

My arm guards are altered children shin guards which I've heat formed, painted and altered to fit my arms. My cape clasps are resin casted and painted with a metallic gold. The cape is made from a lightweight poly-satin and the same metallic white spandex used on the suit. The bottom of the cape is heat sealed to allow the cape to flow in the wind.

That's awesome!
I love this version of your Huntress outfit and the detail is phenomenal!! Love the pose and , yes, the cape makes you look like a badass. Nice job with all the detailed items for realism and how authentic this really is to be original. It's like you popped out of the comic book and leaped on my monitor.
It would be awesome if you could make it to the wizard world comic con here in Tulsa, OK Nov. 7-9, 2014. I know I would ask for your photo :nod:

Thank you, I wish I could hit up more conventions but everything for cosplay and convention comes out of my own pocket so my traveling is limited.
Understood especially when Canada to Oklahoma is so damn far, too. At least I get to enjoy the fruits of you labors here :nod:
Hands down, one of the most beautiful women and best costumed Huntress to date! 
You look perfect as Huntress. I love your attention to detail on her suit
Fantastic work! The cape is great and I'm particularly impressed with all of the detail on the gloves, boots (and knee pads), and utility belt. The mask/headgear, which can look a little awkward at times (I've seen that on other cosplays), is perfect too.

Saw the GIF of your amazing cape in motion.  I'm convinced your cape is powered by the Havok engine or something.
