I apparently LOVE bring Adam giant capes to shoot. Most of this shoot was comprised of me whipping my cape about and twirling like a fool...worth it.
The suite is made out of a 4 way stretch green metallic spandex lined with swim liner. I used a Kwik Sew K3608 as the base pattern. I made minor alterations such as adding partial straps and insetting detail pieces. There is a bra built into the suit for ‘hidden’ support. The bra connects to the suit and brass ring, and then the bra strap runs from the other side of the ring, under the cape and connects back to the bra. My cape is made from a poly blend with a shimmer to it. The cape is gathered at the shoulder and attached to the brass ring with snaps. The bright green tights are attached to the suit from the leg holes.
My headpiece and gauntlets are both made using wonderflex, craft foam and metallic spandex. I used spray glue to prep the surfaces for a clean and even stick. I used hot glue to secure the spandex to the back of the pieces.
