I actually got the idea to cosplay Shego here on CosCom on the suggestions chain thread!
It got me really inspired and I started rewatching Kim Possible, which I had always liked, and so I fell in love with it all over again.
And really, Shego's got to be one of the coolest characters ever. >:D
Also convinced a friend of mine to cosplay Drakken, so yay to the sassy villain duo! ;D
Anyway, I made the entire outfit myself out of foil jersey, so that it would look like latex but be far easier to work with. I did this by first drawing a template of what Shego's catsuit looks like from all sides and then altering a catsuit pattern accordingly. It was rather nervewracking and quite a bit of work compared to lots of my other costumes, but I am happy with it. :)
Following these con pics, I remade some things to look nicer - the green boot and the green glove. With those, I had at first unfortunately run out of green thread and had to resort to using black...and it wasn't too pretty. The bootcover did also not quite cooperate how I wanted it to, but now I've done repairs and am using a different boot on that side.
So now everything's fine and dandy, and ready for a photo shoot! Even got some ''flames''! ;)
Anyway, cosplaying Shego was SUCH a blast! You get recognized and asked for pictures pretty often (even by kids ;w; ), and it sure has some nostalgia bonus. It also doesn't seem to be done too often.
Anyway, definitely a cosplay I will have to wear more often!
(And also get shooting pictures of, these are just silly con photos. :'D)
