Father Makes a Ms. Marvel Costume for His Daughter

ms marvel costume

Comic book companies are making strides when it comes to telling more stories with female characters as leads, but merchandising needs to keep up. It’s easy to find packaged costumes for characters such as Captain America and Spider-Man but more challenging for characters like Ms. Marvel. Captain Milkshake couldn’t find a Ms. Marvel costume (the Kamala Khan version) for his daughter to wear to a superhero themed birthday party so he made one for her. He explains in an open letter to Marvel asking for more inclusive merchandise:

A flustered trip round Croydon resulted with a blue dress (reduced from £60 to £10), the yellow fabric from a pillow (£3), a glittery blue mask (£2) and some cheap red polyester (£2, per foot). A further expense being getting the dress taken in (£18) and the tights and top we already had. I exercised my sewing machine skills and the result, you see above. £32 worth of work paid off in my view.
