I was such a X-men kid growing up! Seriously! Now I have the theme music stuck in my head!
Anyways, while I love Phoenix and Dark Phoenix, Rogue is absolutely my favorite. The story between her and Gambit is incredible and she has so much depth. So when my Remy (my bf) said we should go as the pair I was immediately on board.
I've made the entire costume from 2 pieces of 2 tone stretch fabric, making the entire suit out of green and slowly manipulating the yellow on top into the shape I want, then removing the extra green when the sewing was complete. Made matching boot covers with extra green straps. Took a brown wig and added extra blonde wefts to the front. More will be added before the formal photoshoot. The jacket I did not make b/c I was able to find it at Target and it looks spot on!
