Once again, Catherine Elhoffer has delivered on nerdy fashions we love. This time around, she’s inspired by DC Comics with both Batgirl and Wonder Woman designs.
The Batgirl-inspired dress is purple textured spandex and black scuba and comes with bat ears on the hood and side pockets. The Wonder Woman tunic is inspired by Gal Gadot’s costume and features antique gold stretch vinyl, dark red Techno, navy textured Liverpool (spandex/poly blend), side pockets, and a faux skirt tabard. Take a closer look below.
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee This is like the only sound I can make cause I'm so excited to send this up to @maidofmight!! I saw a recent cosplay she did of #Batgirl and just had to turn it into a cute dress! And, full disclosure, I don't know shit about DC universe, so apparently this is #StephanieBrown? Totally thought it was #barbragordon oops! 😉 doesn't matter, the colors are life. I used my athletic wear black scuba, a textured purple spandex, and a yellow solid spandex to recreate the color blocking of her costume. The bat logo is appliquéd onto the bust with wonder under and a nice zig zag stitch! The hood has bat ears sewn to it. And this pattern has 40 pieces. What even. ???? I'm doing a Wonder Woman piece next. Guess it's DC day in my studio. ? #sewing #handmade #batman #gotham #dccomics #geekbound #geekfashion #geekchic #disneybound #spandex #new52
Ok. It's only been like 18 hours and now this dress is my favorite. I've had a #WonderWoman concept in my head for a while now, thanks to @scruffyrebel! But I finally made time to make it. And I was going to post it last night but y'all were so happy with batgirl that I didn't want this to be overshadowed!! (There are two sewing flaws along the front center of this piece, but that's why I like sewing sample pieces before making more! :D) Side pockets – ?? Hi-low skirt – ?? Gold eagle – ?? Textured Navy Liverpool Fabric – ?? Antique Gold Stretch Vinyl details – ?? (If you want to commission this piece from me, I can do it with this cross strap, or with actual normal shoulder straps, or with no straps! I hand make this piece so I can alter just about anything!! 😀 Ok. Now I gotta run to a leather store for a #cosplay commission! Hope everyone has an amazing Friday! It's Friday, so it's almost a guarantee to be great! ? #dianaprince #amazon #handmade #geekfashion #geekbound #geekchic #lyndacarter #galgodot #dccomics #disneybound
Both of these designs were custom orders, but if you’re interested, you can contact her for details.
