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.
