Psychic Butterfly by gillykins Psychic Butterfly by gillykins
This costume has been on my 'to do' list for over 6 years. I've always loved this version of Psylocke's costume, I lovingly refer to it as the gypsy butterfly. For those who don't know this is Betsy's original costume from when she first takes the name Psylocke and joins the X-men in the 80's.

Since Psylocke’s telepathic signature is the butterfly just had to make a mask.

Costume Construction:

The bodysuit is made from a custom pattern drafted by me. The costume is made from a pink four way stretch spandex and lined with a white spandex. The cut out sections on the waist are inset with a skin tone mesh. The sleeves and leg detail are made from a dark pink chiffon. The cuffs and rectangle appliqués are made from a dark pink suede. The appliqués are satin stitched in place. The wig is cut and styles by me.

Awesome photo collaboration usage with your two different poses and your eyes really bring out the mood in each shot.
Your pic looking at the camera really has me captured :eyepopping:
Nice costume work the pink "butterflies" is a nice effect to the costume.

That telepathic butterfly signature from the 1980s was something I never thought I'd see done in an actual Psylocke costume. Well done!

You have such a great figure and this costume really accentuates that. The unique version is so refreshing to see. You deserve all the accolades you get on this. Bravo.

Nice to cosplay of the early Psylocke. The Butterfly is a great touch.

You have an AMAZING physique. And very creative on the use of the psychic butterfly! It sort of doubles as a mask of sorts which is genius!
