Uncanny Psylocke by gillykins Uncanny Psylocke 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.

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.

You look amazing as classic 80’s retro Psylocke! I always liked that look the best for her, and you capture all of Betsy’s elegance, beauty, and fashion sense and give it a quality realism that your own beauty really brings out well. Very sexy pose, without being over-the-top sexy if you get my meaning! As a woman, I totally appreciate that. You’re definitely my favorite Psylocke cosplayer out of all the ones I’ve seen on DeviantArt so far! Great work.

About darn time someone did Betsy Braddock before she joined the assassin, Kwannon, and becoming Psylocke.
Nice job with the outfit and finding the right fabrics for the form fitting look, yet light enough for movement.
I love your pics as a brunette, blonde, red-head, and even green haired characters, but I think I like the purple the best :winner:

Perfect Psylocke is perfect! :'D

I'm not sure that I ever got to see this one in person. ;m; But the inset skin tone mesh is COMPLETELY ingenious. It just looks like skin. :U Smart!
