Assembling an Avengers: Age of Ultron Scarlet Witch Costume

Avengers: Age of Ultron premiered last weekend, and the Marvel film introduced Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, also known as Pietro and Wanda Maximoff. Their costumes were quite different from what we’ve seen in comic books, but in this case, I’m glad about the change. They both wear more everyday sort of attire rather than theatrical costumes. It makes sense for the characters at this place and time because as Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) said in an interview with Cinema Blend:

“The way that we’ve designed the costumes of these characters is based off of these two kids being on their own and using whatever they can to their best ability. Like, if they see a street vendor, they just grab something off a street vendor. So it hints to Eastern Europe, but it’s also this kind of kitschy vagabond feel, as well.”

That absolutely applies to Wanda’s costume. Her layered ensemble reminds me of what River wore in Firefly. And since it is clothes rather than spandex or armor, that means you can re-create the Scarlet Witch look with just a handful of basics. This is a costume you can replicate to every last detail for conventions or adapt more casually and wear to the office. The basics include:

Red leather (simulated or otherwise) jacket, bonus points if the red follows a darker red gradation to the bottom of the jacket and the sleeves
Black gauntlets/bracers, ziip-up if possible
Black dress – hers is specifically a dress with a collar and a very intricate pattern, but you can approximate with a v-neck black dress
Red tank to layer under the black dress
Black thigh highs, rolled down to the knees – again, hers feature a certain texture but you can work around it
Chunky black or gray lace-up boots – you could make combat boots work
Silver jewelry – She wears a lot of rings, a few bracelets, and a couple of necklaces. Larger versions of the Scarlet Witch movie poster (pictured above) show off nice close-ups of that jewelry.

You could piece the majority of this costume together by visiting a mall with stores like Forever 21, H&M, or Claire’s. A screen accurate version would take more work because you need to match fabrics, but you can start with store bought items.
