DragonCon 2016: Spider-Gwen Costume

Spider-Gwen Cosplay Dragon Con 2016

It's almost Halloween (yay!) so I'm excited to finally show you my Spider-Gwen cosplay that I wore at Dragon Con last month. (If you're not familiar, Spider-Gwen is an alternate universe comic where Gwen Stacy was bitten by the spider instead of Peter Parker. Go read it!) Being under 5 feet tall, it can be hard to find full body costumes like this and it's also difficult to make one from a pattern since they're made for average proportions. 

This time I decided to purchase a custom-sized bodysuit from Zentai Zone instead of buying a pattern, re-proportioning it in Photoshop, having the Spider-Gwen fabric printed, etc... It took about 2 weeks for it to be made and delivered and it was pretty perfectly sized to me. Should I order another, I would add 1/2 - 1 inch to the torso size since the back zipper makes it so there's not as much give there. Other than that, perfect. 

The rest of the costume was purchased on Amazon. The wig was leftover from my Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors costume I wore last year and the ballet flats were basic and comfy. I got quite a lot of positive comments from the other congoers!

Outfit: Green Corduroy Skirt, Mock Turtleneck, and Gray Leopard Print Heels

Fall Outfit - Green Corduroy A-Line Skirt Gray Mock Turtleneck Leopard Heels

Hey! It's me again. I still exist. This is the longest I've gone without blogging since I started this blog in 2011, but I'm going to give myself an excuse since I was out of the country for more than two weeks. It's been very hard for me to find time to blog after work with my commute too and unfortunately that probably won't change for a bit longer. I'm back to share a warm weather fall outfit with you though!

Before heading off to Europe, I decided to treat it like back to school wardrobe shopping and pick up a few new things that would be easily remixable. I found this dark green corduroy skirt and gray mock turtleneck top at H&M and wore them each multiple times throughout the trip. They're just good basic pieces to have in general. This is a look I put together the week before I left which included some fun accessories to spice it up - my gray leopard print heels and a Cat Scully pin by Danielle V Green

So I definitely have more to share with you since I've been away. Some of you have been following along on Instagram so you know that Matt and I got engaged on our trip. (Yay!) I want to show you pictures from my trip too! More to come on that - promise.

Halloween is coming up soon too so I'm pretty pumped about that. It's my favorite holiday, after all. I haven't decided on my costume but it's sure to be one of my Dragon Con costumes which I plan on sharing with you this week too! Let's get this blog back on track!

Have a happy start to your week!
