Miss Martian (M’gann M’orzz) ~ Casual Outfit
Inspiration: Hellloooo Megan! I’m a big fan of comics and love the show Young Justice! A friend of mine suggested I make this costume since I love the show anyway and I’m also named Megan. I was hesitant at first because of the need for green body paint, but then I decided why not? It was a great idea and I had a lot of fun with this costume, and it wouldn’t have happened without his support!
Materials/Construction Details: I made the jacket and skirt out of maroon cotton with black bias tape on the skirt and a darker maroon around the sleeves and collar. The shoes were found at a thrift shop and the white tank top, head band, and socks were all purchased. Overall a fairly easy costume to put together. I think in the future I would also like to make her uniform.
Wig: The wig was sold as a Kairi wig, but I thought it was a good color and style for what I was looking for. I simply had to trim up the bangs a little and it was good to go.
Prop: I decided to do a baking photoshoot because of a cute scene in episode 8, “Downtime”, between Miss Martian and Superboy. Those were real cookies though, and they were greatly enjoyed after the shoot. A touch of photoshop was used for these pictures since I’m not actually able to levitate items, but I think it made for a fun effect.
