Teen Titans Come Together in an Impressive Group Cosplay
Ginger Armadillo Costumes has assembled a superhero team. She brought friends together to portray the Teen Titans and she crafted the majority of the costumes herself. She found a way to tie all the costumes together with a similar look. She combined comic book influences and realism, which as to be especially tricky with a character like Beast Boy. Ginger Armadillo dresses as Raven in the group, and she explains how the costume was made:
I self-drafted Raven’s leotard, using a swimsuit pattern as a base, and constructed it using black and slate blue pleather. Tulle overlays and piping add dimension. Gloves made to match. Cloak is three layers of navy chiffon. Stilletto pleater boots with added blue straps complete the ensemble. Wig is a Suzi from Arda, cut into a bob.
I cast all the gems from resin, dyed red and mixed with pink cellophane glitter. The gem settings were cut from sheet brass and attached to parts of a recycled belt. The raven insignia is also cut from brass. The majority of the metal working was done by our resident metalsmith (who also cosplayed Robin!)
