Starfire by gillykins Starfire by gillykins
Starfire is a costume I always wanted to do but never though I could. Then I decided to go for it! I thought I would feel uncomfortable being half naked and orange at a convention but I had nothing but positive experiences as Starfire! The amount of little girls who were thrilled to see me was amazing.

Costume Construction:
Starfire is a costume you look at and think "I can't totally make that easily" but when you sit down and plan things out you wonder why you though it was easy!

I drafted a custom monokini pattern for Starfire's main suit, which is made out of a purple metallic spandex. I made a moulded collar and 'bra' piece using fosshape to add structure and support to the suit. The boots are made in two sections: a boot piece and legging. I wanted to be able to easily take of my shoes and rest so making the thigh high boots in two pieces was the best decision possible. The legging section has silicon elastic on the tops to hold them in place. My bracers and armband are made out of wonderflex and craft foam. I head formed the bracers to allow for maximum arm/wrist movement so they are super comfortable.

All the gems on the costume are custom cast in resin. All the purple gems have purple glitter inset in them where as the red gem is done in a marbleized red. My ‘crotch gem’ is attached to a pin backing so it is removable for storage/washing. All the purple gems are finished with purple glitter glue surrounding the gems.

Just when I thought you wouldnt' do a character with different skin coloring, I get proven wrong which is great. Beautiful job in the detail and authentic style outfit for Starfire who is loved by many fans. Aweseome work on the outfit and the body paint looks authentic and genuine.
With all due respect, you have a great body and build to portray Starfire very well!!

If I remember correctly it took about 2 hours to get in full makeup with the help of some key friends.

Sclera lenses are very expensive, I couldn't justify the cost for this costume. However I am wearing Green 15mm Circle lenses, not full green but pretty darn big.

I knew they were expensive, though I wasn't sure how much they were. And after a short search not turning up lime green sclera contacts, I can see quite a few reasons not to go for them.

Anyway, I was just nitpicking. ;) The costume really is very good!
