I've wanted to dress as my City of Heroes character (ice blaster, natch) ever since I designed her back in Beta, so I finally did it for this Halloween. Didn't have time to make her cape or glowing ice sword, but hope to get those done eventually just 'cause they're super cool. ^_^
There's a main bodysuit (modified pattern) with no front or side seams, then I added overlay sections to create the 3-D armor look in the original. This involved a lot of pinning stuff on me and swearing. *lol* The knotwork and shading were done with Prismacolor markers. Of course I had to dress my character in the most complicated costume in the game, because I am a dummy. :P
Here's what Frostie looks like in-game: http://sarcasm-hime.net/frostfaerie-ref2.jpg
edit: I won the City of Heroes Halloween contest with this costume - Best Female category. Wooo!

Excellent work on the prismacolor shading, must have involved a lot of patience. I love your character's design for CoH too XD

Oh man! That is super fantastic! I totally love that game so much, and will eventually make one of my chars costumes. My boyfriend and I play as "Omega's"
Too bad they changed the COH costume contest (it would of been a kick ass entry) I admire your work so much, great job again!

Sarcasm-hime posted on 11-02-2005 at 02:45 PM:
Yeah, I'm going to enter it, although this year's contest is actually different from last year's - this year you're supposed to make up an archvillain for your hero, which I misunderstood. Oh well, it's worth a try anyways. ^_^;
