What’s a girl to do when she adores the hell out of Psylocke’s new costume but she’s terrible at sewing spandex? Redesign it as a dress obviously.
Look, this is basically my love letter to Uncanny X-Force. And also a giant fistbump to Sam Humphries and Kris Anka for writing a kickass book and designing a kickass costume respectively. (My bad for misleading you about why I wanted to know what the leg shapes looked like, Anka, my bad.) I adore the hell out of Betsy’s new costume and I adore the hell out of this crazy book. It was either this or keyboard smashing incoherently. I swear I’ll get around to make the actual costume one day. Promise!
Just pretend that there’s a bottle of expensive French champagne in these photos as I toast the book and my darling Betsy.
There were some slight changes made when translating the dress from my original sketch to real life (due in part to a difficult pattern and an epic battle with a zipper where the zipper won) but I am mostly happy with how it turned out although I’ll probably do a second pass at it/fix some small issues when I’m not angry at the zipper.
