Forgot to upload these great pictures of my Calista dress from Katsucon that felicisrook finished the other week!  I’m really bad at being cute characters like this but she was very patient in schooling me through the expressions and I think we kind of pulled it off!  <3

(Power Girl, Huntress, Black Canary, GAIL SIMONE, Lady Blackhawk, Misfit, Black Alice)

I was at NYCC, and had had long lines the entire time, it was very crowded, and I was in the signing zone. Hubby, #rocketspouse saw Misfit coming down the aisle through the crowd and said, “honey, look! It’s Misfit!”

So I look, and I get a big smile. Then I see Huntress. Then Black Alice.

By the time the whole team showed up, I cried a little. :)

Every time I think I can calm down about how amazing this was, IT GETS BETTER

Thank you for being so awesome, Gail!

I was wondering, How did you do the Zinda Blake emblem stuff. I have a pleather jacket I'm using and I have no idea how to do the Blackhawk emblems. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated thank you and I love your costumes.

Thank you!  I used iron-on vinyl.  It’s amazing stuff, it looks great and is cheap and easy to use!  I bought it here—at the time they sold 9”x12” sheets for $4, but I only see bigger sheets listed right now; perhaps I’m just looking in the wrong place.  It should work fine on pleather, just make sure to put a rag or washcloth between the iron and the vinyl/pleather, as it does require a high setting and you don’t want to damage the pleather.  There is a clear plastic coating on the vinyl that should be easily peeled off AFTER it is completely adhered to the fabric.

Oh, I will check it out…how did you then make the Blackhawk symbol? Did you draw it? 

Yep, just draw and cut it out of the vinyl and iron it on!
