When Jean Grey first joined the X-Men, her Marvel Girl costume was pretty simple. The green dress and yellow mask and gloves are iconic and quite snazzy. Kelldar made the outfit back in 2009 and says it was a fun and simple project. I promise that cosplay can be easy if you just give it a chance. Here are the basics:
I made the dress using an ice-skating leotard pattern, out of green spandex. It’s also lined in the same fabric. I made boot covers for a pair of boots I already had. I used my Rogue gloves and made cuffs for them, and bought a belt and covered it in fabric. The belt buckle I bought online. My husband made the mask for me (same as the Huntress one – vac-formed plastic over my head cast), and I had the wig. (I had wanted a new one for this, but still haven’t gotten one!) It was a simple, comfy costume.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
