Glamour Girl - Silk Spectre by FireLilyCosplay Glamour Girl - Silk Spectre by FireLilyCosplay
Photographer: LJinto

I had been planning this costume ever since I saw "The Watchmen" in March 2009. Sally's costume was just to die for!

I used a double layer of antique yellow silk chiffon for the dress, with a luster satin for the waist cincher, collar, wristlet, and corset. The glove is dull spandex with gold buttons sewn on. The stockings were purchased, as were the boots (though the wrong ones were sent to me). The earrings were made from two buttons. I did the make up and nails on my own. The wig is an Angela 750 in Red Auburn, and was styled using hair rats that I made of felt, bobby pins, and hairspray. Thank you so much to all the 1940s hair styling videos I watched on youtube!!

Overall, I love this costume. It is very comfortable to wear, despite the 5 inch heels and corset ^.^ And I just love how it makes me feel - very old world glam.

Stunning. I feel this captured Silk Spectre perfectly. Everything about this image is visually pleasing, and the nerd in me is doing back flips.

You're sweet :love: It'd be nice if I could pull off my own look just as easily ^.^ I honestly think dressing up suits me better.

You have the look I had presumed for Sally to be having in her first years of being a super heroine. Bright eyes, healthy look... definately less bitchy.

Such a sad story but a much more plausible personal life than that of common superheroes til late.

I agree with the comment above; I had not thought it to be a wig either.
