So I herd you liek rolled hems by rurouni-jedi So I herd you liek rolled hems by rurouni-jedi
Alright, alright, I know like 90% of you are watching me because of my cosplay, and I haven't posted any cosplay pictures in ages, so here ya go. My newest costume--Silk Spectre I/Sally Jupiter from the Watchmen movie.

I read Watchmen last year after Comic Con, after hearing about how it was the only graphic novel to make TIME's list of 100 greatest novels. Being a graphic novelist myself, that's high praise for a comic, and it didn't disappoint. I found myself analyzing the book the same way I was forced to do in my high school literature classes. What is it about Dan's Nite Owl costume that gives him his potency? How does Jon's loss of his own humanity represent the rest of the world's loss of humanity? How does Rorschach's black and white view of the world make him the good guy or the bad guy? Watchmen is one of those books you can read over and over again and get something new and different out of it after every read, and I highly encourage anyone who is the least bit interested in comics (and those who aren't!) to pick it up.

As for the costume, I originally was interested in doing Silk Spectre II, but I decided that A) I didn't have the skills necessary to make a latex body suit, and B) I simply don't have the body or slight build for a costume like that. Sally Jupiter was a much more flattering costume for my figure, and the 40's pinup style was definitely appealing to me.

You make a fabulous Sally! Wonderful work with the costume and hair, and I love the pose.
Also, totally agree on the graphic novel. Incredibly intriguing, and it just makes you want more. xD

Aw, I only wish you had some work in progress pics of this, I'd love to see how you put this together. I'm attempting this cosplay for ComicCon, and I have no idea where to start, rofl.

You've done a lovely job, here, and your wig styling skills are superb. I only wish my hair was long enough to pull off those glory rolls. :)

No spelled N-O! XD Thanks!
Inspirrational Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009
I just have to say, I LOVE how similar Silk Spectre I is to Wonder Woman, specifically the fetishist aspects. Great costume, btw, much better than some others I've seen of this character.
Tyger86 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009
Were you at Wondercon 2009?I think I got a picture of you on Saturday.If you were,thank you for letting me take a picture of you and the Rorschach with the puppy.I love your costume! It looks like the real deal.
rurouni-jedi Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009  Professional General Artist
Yeah, that was me! Thanks, I'm glad you like! :)
Tyger86 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009
I'm glad I got to see it in real life :) My dad was CONVINCED you were working for Warner Bros to do publicity for the movie,your costume was THAT good!
themonican2005 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009
BEST. SILK. SPECTRE. COSPLAY. I HAVE SEEN. :) I'm sorry the ones at Wondercon weren't very impressive.
Anya893 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009
Did you use any type of a pattern? I want to Sally Jupiter for Halloween and being an amature with a sewing machine I'll probably need to get started soon.

Any advice for the costume would be amazing but it's fine if you can't get back to me.
rurouni-jedi Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009  Professional General Artist
Believe it or not, for the yellow dress I basically threw fabric onto my dressform and just started pinning until I got something that looked right. The bottom half is just a circle skirt, but I don't even know if I could recreate the top half if I tried! ^^;
Anya893 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009
You have true talent! I wish I could sew dresses like that without a patern!
YoukiPrincess Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2009
This is beautiful! Hopefully my Cosplay will turn out just as good!
kafers Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome! I love the original Silk Spectre costume, it has much more of an old comic book feel to it :) my inner geek is happy with seeing so much Watchmen stuff at the moment.
Andrei-Mischievous Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009   General Artist
That is perfect! I prefer Silk Spectre I too, with that pin up style ^^ amazing work!
XxCyanideMelovexX Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
