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!

Should I dress up to hand out candy tomorrow, I'll probably be wearing this costume. I won't even have to deal with the wig since I have blonde hair now. (This costume may have convinced me I should go blonde for a little while...) I will tell you that peeing in this suit was a trick with the wig since I had to pull the neck part up over my head without pulling the wig off. Glad I won't have to bother with the wig this time!

So tell me - what will you be wearing for Halloween? Or did you already dress up? I wish Halloween was a national holiday so I could just stay up and watch my Halloween movie marathon all night tonight and all day tomorrow. But it's not and I'll be at work. Oh well!

I hope you have a happy Halloween and a great week ahead of you!
