WIP Batgirl by SugarBunnyCosplay WIP Batgirl by SugarBunnyCosplay
My progress on my Barbara Gordon Batgirl cosplay.

Mine is based off of the animated series Babs, so that's the design I focused on. I have never felt like a giant rubber condom until I attempted to sew my Batgirl costume. Originally I was going to make the costume out of regular lycra but went with this rubbery looking fabric. XD It's super tight and hard to maneuver in, but I think it looks pretty good for my first attempt with this fabric.

The hardest part was the batsymbol. I'll be making a new belt and such. I just need to get a zipper to add into the back, buy/alter my gloves and get fabric for the cape. I'm also going to need new boots. (These are my Rogue ones...) Can't wait to start working on the cowl. JOY.

I guess its a kind of PVC ;)

maybe you shouldve used latex, maybe as unbreathable but, tighter but not so restraining than vinyl/pvc ^^

Anyway, it's real cute. You're clearly very talented. I'm currently writing a story that involves someone in a Batgirl costume (not fan fic), and yours is the template I'm keeping in mind.

So your work is inspirational. So there.

Holy shit. If I only had the talent to craft that master piece and the body to rock it. I'd wear it to work even.

How in the world do you manage to work with clingy fabric and make it look amazing instead of baggy in all the wrong places?
Oh, that's right. It's so obvious.
You must be a wizard.

It actually makes more sound when I'm putting it on! I was expecting to sound like Velma from Scooby Doo 2 in her leather suit! XDD That would have been hilarious~

The fabric is pretty thin and actually really easy to work with. The only tough parts are when the pices stick to each other. XD

XD Haha, why thank you! It looks tight, but it's a good fit. I was worried too, thinking it looked way too tight for me despite how it felt comfortable.

I love the detail, and heck you could modify your rouge boots a bit and you would have that, and i can't wait to see the cowl

Thank you! >//u//< Yeah I thought about modifying my Rogue boots but the one conundrum I face is that I still plan to cosplay Rogue. If I buy more yellow vinyl then I might make bootcovers for Rogue and recycle these boots for Babs. :D
I'm super excited but nervous about the cowl! I've been doing hours of research to figure out how I'm gonna do it! I'll definitely upload pictures once I figure it out.
