Rrrrraven! Pretty simple costume that everyone adored!
5/26/13: I have five days before A-kon to remake the cape in a much more appropriate blue, color match my shoes, and resin cast new belt gems. It's crunch time! That cape is so old that it's fading, ha ha. Hope to see you all at A-kon in my updated Raven costume!
Leotard: Bought at a dance store. Seriously, they have the perfect turtleneck leotard, and it's pretty comfy! The wrist gauntlets are detachable and have the "gems" glued on. ($20)
Boots: Bought at Charlotte Russe, which is a great place to look for colored shoes for costumes. Yes, they're open toed AND platforms, and I think it looks fine. I'm short, so I need the boost. Besides, the blue matched my cape pretty well! ($25)
Cape: Blue fabric, some sort of apparel fabric, with wire in the hood. (~$20)
Belt: Made from plastic Christmas ornaments by painting them gold and red, and then attaching them to a gold chain. The communicator is a yellow Bubble Tape container (Look for them around Easter), painted and glossed and hooked onto the belt. ($10)
Wig: I bought a slightly longer than chin length wig from Epic Cosplay, and after a nice trim, I used Got2b pomade and freezing spray to sculpt the bangs into place, and they held up pretty well! (~$45)
