[WAYW] Spider-Woman – Guest Starring Kelly Sue!

When I heard that the wonderful Kelly Sue DeConnick was going to be at Third Eye Comics along with Emma Rios for Halloweekend to help promote the launch of Pretty Deadly, I was beyond psyched.  I also knew that I had put together an outfit for the occasion even though I didn’t have much time to work on it.  I decided to keep with the Captain Marvel theme and to pull together a Spider-Woman dress.

Unlike the Psylocke dress I made this summer, this was an alteration/do-it-yourself.  The shapes were patterned, turned into appliques, embroidered around the edges, and then hand sewed them to the dress: all in just a few short hours.  The headband was a quick project from the other day to try and tie it all together.  (It was supposed to have had a spider on it but I couldn’t find one.)

I can’t thank Kelly Sue enough for a) coming out to Third Eye and b) for being so incredibly nice.  I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to chat with her for what felt like a decent chunk of time.  Honestly, I’m mostly just grasping for words right now.  The entire experience was just fantastic.

PS: You should all go pick up Pretty Deadly #1 because it was Pretty Awesome.
