Magnetic Mistress by gillykins Magnetic Mistress by gillykins
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.

Costume Construction:
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.

See? I knew you would look good in green (may not be in She-Hulk body paint, but I'll take it!!)
Gorgeous outfit and Adam did a great job with the magical effects in your hands. Awesome realism to the character and the cape flowing effect looks great!!
I really like the lighting and the black background to emphasis your character portrayal and with the photo size....perfect wallpaper pic :bounce:

This version of Polaris always reminded me of Rydia from FFIV... so I have a soft spot for this design! Lovely~!!

Rydia's FFIV is so beautiful, I love the mixture of the greens and gold

So freaking badass! More Lorna loooove! Once I dust off my cosplayin' boots again I want to make ALL the Lorna costumes!

Lorna Love! I think Malice Polaris should be the TOP of your list.

Nice work - I'm not the biggest fan of Polaris, but this is still a fine costume!

Over all, excellent work! The effects look like the magnetic sphere is behind your hands. I see there was some effort on your right wrist to make them look like your hands are inside the spheres, but the spheres should obscure your hands a bit more.
