Costumes Pt. 2 – The Flash

This was the first time I made a superhero costume and I didn’t have a clue how to make it. My first choice for the fabric was spandex but the commissioner requested a non-spandex costume, so,  I had to find a different type of fabric.   I didn’t know what would work well for a superhero costume. At the end I bought a fabric with 3% of lycra to have a moderate stretch.

The cowl/mask was the one thing that was a pain in the neck to make. I had to made it two times. But at the end it was a lot of fun to make and the best thing is to know that the boy was happy with the costume.

About foolishlife

Words cannot describe what we are. We are a little bit complicated to explain. All we can say about ourselves is that we live a foolish life. EkkE-Mekka, we are sister and Ed is our little nephew. The three of us are always finding new ways to pass the time. We cosplay, write, sew, draw, do crafts, chase the ice cream man and a whole lot of other things. So, we hope you enjoy reading about our silly adventures.
