Remember that time Christine and I appeared in a Morgan Spurlock documentary, “Comic Con: A Fan’s Hope?” We get asked about this every so often, but I finally watched it tonight.
So there you have it.
Draft 2.0. A little confusing, maybe, but I hope you can understand what’s going on here. The upper front of the front extends into the sleeve beyond where a typical raglan seam would go to avoid having a superfluous seam there; instead it meets with the “square point” of the shoulder detail at a lower point, which will hopefully look less obtrusive.
I’ve also done the bodysuit without side seams because I’m a lunatic and want that horrid “action figure” look. I find the side seams on most N52 Supergirl costumes tend to detract from the design because it breaks up the special snowflake horizontal seams it was designed with. Ah well, the more alien the better.
I guess tomorrow I am sewing this together and then doing the crotch shield/super diaper. This design is absurd. Hopefully by the end of Tuesday I’ll have a finished pattern and whatever Emmy and I work on tomorrow :) probably Beth from Bravest Warriors!
And for reference: the tag for this costume is n52sg.
Working on N52 Supergirl pattern. Need to tweak the collar and bottom but I basically know how that’ll go.
This costume is “due” on the 27th so we will see how far I get in the next few days.
Surprise photoshoot today! Har har har. Did my makeup darker than usual…
I have a rough pattern for a Turner Supergirl cape here:
Basically, if you cut this on the fold, you’ll get a full rounded cape with a shoulder piece that comes around to the front. The length between the back of the neck and the bottom edge should be the same as the measurement from your neck to your ankles.
You can either sew it in two layers (putting the \S/ on the outside layer first!) with a gold trim in-between and then turn it right side out, or you can apply gold bias tape around the whole thing. Typically, I do the gold part that goes across the front as a solid piece, as I don’t like seams on the front band. This gold band also gets sewn in place on the front of the shirt, and only at the front — Supergirl’s cape doesn’t attach at the back of the neck. A bit funny to get on and off your body with a big cape flopping around the neck, but ultimately looks a lot smoother.
I have not yet found a way to make it removable without compromising the neatness of the front strip of gold bias tape, though :(
