White Canary was a bit of a last minute project. I’ve been reading Birds of Prey for a long time and I’ve been wanting to cosplay Black Canary for a long time. The only thing is, when I do, I want to cosplay Black Canary’s new 52 outfit, as the original is really popular at conventions.
Recently, Aree and I teamed as White and Black Canary and had a photo shoot with Lexa One and Beevii as out make up artist. We were able to produce these amazing photos!
White Canary turned out to be a great challenge. I had never done a bodysuit. I had never done a duster. I had never done boot covers. I had never worked with PVC stretch. Overall it was a lot of first and there are a few things I’d like to improve (like the booth covers… they were not how I wanted them to turn out) but overall, it’s was fun to challenge myself.
Lately, I feel a lot of my cosplayer peers have been taking an easier route with armoured cosplay as worbla is becoming an easy material to work with. I’ve decided to step away from armour and improve my sewing skills instead. I want to challenge myself, I want to grow as a cosplayer and I feel that sewing is the way to go for me. It may not be as flashy and as impressive as armoured cosplays but my true love is in sewing, where it all started! <3
