Black Widow Cosplay

 UPDATE!  The pattern is now available in my ETSY shop Sorry, but it's just the one size until I have time to grade it larger or until I have more money to hire someone else to grade it. Check it out here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/199165877/black-widow-avengers-cosplay-sewing?

When I'm not running our yogurt store or writing I enjoy sewing Cosplay commissions.
Black Widow, Avengers

For the 2013 Fanime Convention, I created a catsuit and gloves for "Black Widow" from the avengers.

Modeling the costume is Cosmic-Empress

For the record: Cosmic-Empress usually crafts her own costumes, but since I was planning on making this costume for myself, I offered to share the pattern. She purchased the fabric, provided the shoes,props, accessories, and wig--the essential elements that transformed this from a plain black catsuit into a recognizable Black Widow. 

This was one of the easier projects I've done because she selected a heavyweight knit instead of using a woven fabric and her measurements are very proportional.

The SHIELD patches were purchased online.

  1. You did a great job! Bet my wife would look awesome in that outfit.

  2. If I had a body like that I would so want that suit! Great job! I loved that character in the Avengers, too.

  3. What can I say except WOW! You do amazing work. And your friend looks gorgeous in it.

  4. Oh, wow! That's really cool! It looks fantastic, but SO complicated to make!

  5. You made that? Wow! I'm a big fan now. What an awesome job!!

  6. Would you be willing to sell the pattern?

  7. Amazing outfit. I am a working photographer doing a shoot and we are having trouble finding a decent Black Widow suit. I would also like to know if you would be willing to sell the pattern and what material was used. Thank you for your time.

  8. I am also very interested in pattern and material information, if you will sell. This is absolutly no doubt the best suit I've seen so far! Great job!

  9. I'd be interested in getting my hands on the pattern! Andy chance? I'd love to do a Black Widow ensemble this year!
