Madame Hydra Costume

There’s so much new to me cosplay this week! This time it’s Marvel Comics’s Madame Hydra/Vixen from Yaya Han. The character’s true identity is Ophelia Sarkissian, and she was taken in by Hydra as a young girl. She sort of went through a different version of the Black Widow program. She rose through the ranks of Hydra and eventually took out the super villain known as Viper and replaced him and took his name. She’s no-nonsense. And bonus: Madame Hydra wears a green bodysuit that looks pretty practical as far as superhero and super villain costumes go.

Yaya started with reference images from the comics and designed her own version of Madame Hydra. It still has all the same components and similar cuts, but Yaya used three different fabrics to give the outfit texture. That also helps break up all the green. She used: Metallic green 2-way stretch PVC, 4-way jumbo spandex, and 4-way scale print. You can see how the various fabrics look in the below photo.

Some of Yaya’s notes on the construction of the costume:

I broke down the design into 4 pieces: Top with mandarin collar, waist cincher (more for the look than for the function), pants and gloves. All pieces are made with 3 different green fabrics: jumbo spandex, scale pattern metallic spandex and pvc. I also used black rubberized spandex for all the Hong Kong style finishing on the shoulders, gloves and collar.
The front part of the cincher is quilted, vaguely simulating a snake’s belly.
