ShadowCat (Kitty Pryde)
Ultimate X-Men

Inspiration:  From time to time I like to engross myself in a new comic, especially X-Men.  I’ve always liked Kitty, but I thought her one piece body suit would be unflattering on me.  When I saw that she wore a dress in Ultimate X-Men I knew I had to make that costume for Dragon*Con.  Mutants represent!

Materials/Construction Details:  To make this dress I had to take a basic pattern and modify it drastically so that once sewn together the design made a yellow X across the dress.  I sewed together a mock up, drew the X pattern on it, and then cut that back apart to figure out what my final pattern would look like.  I was originally going to make the costume out of pleather, but that really wasn’t working out to be too flattering, so while I was perusing JoAnn’s looking for other ideas I noticed navy and yellow suede in the remnant section.  I love suede, so that sealed the deal for me.  I found a really cute, tiny Star of David necklace online, which helped identify my character and then all that was left was the X-Men belt buckle, which was made out of craft foam.

Wig:  I didn’t have to do too much to this wig, just messed with the part a little and brushed the curls out a bit.

    I’ll try to take your word for it about the one-piece, but it’s unfathomable to me that *any* outfit would look unflattering on you. :)

    This is so cute. I’ve been thinking about doing Ultimate!Kitty for a while now. What pattern did you use, before you altered it?

    [...] A Lince Negra é com certeza, uma das heroínas mais queridas dos X-men. Já foi usada em campanhas beneficentes pelo direito dos adolescentes, e não por menos… ela foi a primeira X-men a entrar na equipe ainda criança, e desde então os leitores puderam acompanhar seu amadurecimento ao longo dos anos, e a superação de seus medos. Por isso que a cosplayer estadunidense Megan esta no nosso destaque hoje! Ela conseguiu expressar toda a sensibilidade e graça dessa mutante maravilhosa! Confiram mais aqui. [...]

    Were I not so lazy, I would assemble an Ultimate Spider-Man or Ultimate Iceman costume. They were Ultimate Kitty’s boyfriends.
